Fashion choices 'help hosiery suit everyone'
Style savvy women can embrace this seasons fashionable legwear, whatever their shape or size, by following a few helpful fashion hints, one expert has asserted.

Writing for online news resource Stuff, Jane Bolton notes that trendy hosiery such as knee-high socks and colourful patterned tights can look good regardless of the size of a women's pins as long as they are teamed with the right clothes and shoes.

She recommends disguising larger thighs and generous hips by teaming colourful tights with a tunic top, mid-calf cardigan or long coat, adding that a pair of "high, skinny boots" can complement coloured tights and make legs look shapely.

"For a soft look, merino or opaque cream tights teamed with shoes of a neutral shade work well," Ms Bolton adds.

The fashion expert also notes that there are some styles to be wary of, as they will only emphasise any figure flaws.

In particular, she states that combining white tights and black shoes is a style no-no, although reversing the colour combination and donning white shoes could work for some fashionistas.

Recently, style resource Fibre2Fashion claimed that tights can help preserve women's modesty if they are braving this season's super-short mini skirts.
