Girls are looking to cheaper investments in the fashion market as the recession sinks its teeth into the UK, it is said.
Oonagh Brennan, the fashion director at Company magazine, explained that quick fixes are the order of the day, with many young women turning to the likes of tights
and knee highsocks
to breathe life into their clothing rather than spending more money on an outfit which will last them.
Items which are "bang on trend" are top choice, she continued, with hosiery no doubt fitting into these demands quite nicely.
Ms Brennan continued: "You might have to cut back on holidays and big things like that but you can still go and treat yourself and look really lovely on a Saturday night, which I think will probably keep most girls happy."
Company promotes a "freedom years" approach, with readers of the magazine having the ability to buy their own fashions and wear whatever they feel suits them best, giving hints and tips on customisation.
