Sheer tights: a look for all ages?
With summer upon us many women will face the dilemma of whether to cover up or bare their legs.

However these need not be the only options, with sheer tights proving to be a popular choice of hosiery for many celebrities, regardless of their age.

While traditionally associated with the older generation, celebrities such as Kate Middleton and Kate Moss have been spotted frequently wearing the legwear in the past couple of months.

Kate Middleton has sparked a trend among younger women, who like the idea of baring their legs in warmer weather but enjoy not having to worry about remembering to use fake tan.

Diane Von Furstenburg has recently been hailing her favourite sheer fishnet tights. In an interview with the Telegraph, she claimed they add "a little cover-up" and appear to be "chic, more polished, more finished when you're a bit older".

The sixty-plus fashion designer revealed that when wearing "sea sand" or "honey" coloured tights she feels more comfortable in skirts and dresses.
