Use fishnet tights to tackle summer leg dilemmas
Summer can present women with a real fashion dilemma concerning what they should wear on their legs. Is fake tan enough or should they don a pair of tights?

But now, one fashion expert has suggested the answer could lie in pale-coloured fishnet tights which are cooler than thick opaques but more stylish than sheer tights.

Writing for the Telegraph, style expert Hilary Alexander said she was inspired to try the legwear by fashion heavyweight Diane von Furstenberg who swears by honey-coloured fishnets.

"They get full marks on several points: they give the illusion of bare legs without total nudity, they have built-in air-conditioning, and they even out any blemishes or bumps," noted Alexander.

So with fishnets getting the thumbs up from not one but two sartorial experts, anyone who's nervous about exposing their pins now the weather is turning warmer should invest in a pair.

However, if fishnets are a little too adventurous for some, they can rest assured that they are in good company wearing sheer tights. The Duchess of Cambridge is a well known fan of the hosiery.
