Opaque tights making summer comeback
Hollywood actresses and singers are bringing back opaque leg wear this summer, despite warmer weather being associated with bare legs.

While temperatures may be rising, opaque black tights have made a surprise style comeback thanks to a few dedicated celebrities.

Zooey Deschanel recently described hosiery as her "safety blanket", adding that she "will wear tights even if it is 100 degrees C outside".

Singer Lily Allen has become the latest UK patron of this legwear look, sporting black tights at almost every event this summer, aside from her wedding day.

Lily was photographed at the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Polo Final in Sussex wearing a thick pair of the hosiery, accompanied by a black starred dress and oversized crème coat.

Pictured with her new husband Sam Cooper, the pregnant 26-year-old held her growing baby bump as she posed for photographs.
