Lacy tights, trendy or trashy?
One legwear lover has deemed lacy tights to be a romantic addition to any ensemble.

Noting that lacy hosiery has been seen on the catwalks of Emma Cook and Roberto Cavalli, Lou Lou Magazine's editor said they are the perfect way to add a touch of on-trend lace to an outfit, without going overboard.

"Cute black knee-skimming skirt, lace tights, oxford-esque booties… cute, right?" she added.

However, the style savvy writer notes that some people may feel that lacy stockings and tights are a bit too "Madonna-circa-1980s" for some people's tastes.

Online fashion resource Fashionista states that high-end fashion stores are filling their windows with lace ready for autumn.

The news provider is one of lacy tights cynics, stating that they could be sexy but on many legs end up being "trashy".

Meanwhile, blogger Shoe Gal asserts via her blog that lacy tights can lend a punk edge to an outfit, which, according to Elle Magazine, is one of next season's key looks.
