Bovver boots raise legwear questions
An expert has noted that the bovver boot has come back into fashion, leaving many style-conscious women wondering what legwear to team the footwear with.

In an article for the Guardian, Laura Barton states that celebrities, including supermodel Agyness Deyn and Daisy Lowe, have been spotted in the bulky footwear, which first appeared on the fashion scene as the shoe of choice for teenagers in the 1980s.

The reporter adds that the boots can be teamed with floaty dresses and striped tights to create a feminine look, or ripped fishnet stockings for a more grungy style statement.

Meanwhile, fashionistas were recently advised that they can team fashionable legwear with their wellies at this summer's festivals.

An article in the Independent noted that brightly coloured knee-high socks and patterned socks are acceptable on a "modern festival-goer".
