Use legwear to 'add colour to work outfits'
Women wanting to "dress up" their office outfits may want to invest in some patterned tights or hosiery in a fun colour, an expert has suggested.'s Susan Cernek made her comments to online style spot the Kansas CW, noting that many women feel they have to put on dull clothes to be smart enough for work.

However, she urged fashionable females to add fun touches to their ensembles to brighten up a suit, such as a "playful" watch or smart scarf.

Bright blouses may seem a little out of place in a meeting but legwear is "all fair game" the style guru continued.

"Inject a dose of colour into your subdued black, gray, and navy wardrobe by sporting a pair of textured tights or patterned socks," she urged.

Women may want to exercise caution when considering what legwear is suitable for the office as recently there has been debate about whether or not it is acceptable to wear fishnet tights to work.

The Daily Mail reported that one London law firm had ordered its female staff to stop wearing fishnet stockings as they do not present a professional image.
