"Fabulous hosiery" is fashion essential for Mary Portas
Fashion expert Mary Portas has cited "fabulous hosiery" as being one of her fashion staples.

When questioned by the Times about which five items of clothing she would take on a desert island, the retail adviser said a fun pair of tights, along with a black shift dress, a white shirt, "killer heels" and a good necklace are her essentials.

She also stated that fun legwear is a great way to make a plain black dress suitable for the evening.

The style-savvy TV presenter also noted that it is not a good idea for women to try and emulate the style of celebrities.

"It's about looking at yourself and picking the things that suit," she told the news provider.

Meanwhile, in an interview with the Daily Mail, designer Louise Kennedy advised pale skinned ladies to don a pair of sheer tights to give themselves a little colour rather than resorting to fake tan.
