Stockings 'back in fashion'
While it has been quite obvious that a whole host of celebrities from Kylie to Madonna have been favouring wearing stockings and other outrageous pieces of legwear such as ripped fishnet tights, it has not been obvious that this trend has extended to the high street.

Until now that is, after the retailer Debenhams reported a sharp increase in the sale of stockings.

The high street shop reported almost tripling in the sale of black suspender belts in May compared to April, selling an extra 238 sets.

Weather has played a part as much as celebrities, it seems, with the company saying that women have been left unsure what to wear.

A spokeswoman for the company, Ruth Attridge said: "Stockings and suspenders, just like leggings, have become the popular alternative to tights."

Recently Lady Gaga was out and about in Berlin in ripped fishnet tights and Kylie attended an amFAR charity event in New York in a pair of black stockings.
