Hosiery 'makes or breaks' a fashionable look

Hosiery 'makes or breaks' a fashionable look
The legwear a girl selects to finish off her outfit can make or break her look, an expert has commented.

A fashion blogger known as Arlene made her remarks to online resource Lifestyle Choices, noting that there is an incredible amount of tights, stockings and other hosiery choices open to the modern dresser.

She called upon fashionable females to discard tights with visible runs, asserting that such laddered legwear looks "sloppy" and is fundamentally unattractive.

Women should take into account that dark hosiery will make voluptuous legs appear more slender, while paler shades will make overly-slim pins appear fuller, Arlene continued.

The blogger also urged well-dressed women to ensure their hosiery choice matches their outfit in some way.

"When wearing all neutrals, like black, you can go for a contrasting hosiery choice: red, glittery gold, paisley," she recommended.

Recently, fashion commentator Gill Hart suggested, in an article for Suite101, that this year celebrities are adopting brightly-coloured patterned tights and long socks for an unusual and playful look.
