There is a current trend in the world of the fashion-conscious for colour blocking, it has been reported.

Such a look involves using large chunks of abstract colour incorporated into an outfit, allowing a touch of brightness into even the most sophisticated wardrobe, fashion director Gregg Andrews told the Canadian Press.

The use of vivid shades can add to the daringness of bright colours without making the wearer look too floral, he explained.

Dress designer Lisa Perry suggested that fashion fanatics consider matching bright green tights with nude-coloured fishnet stockings.

However, she warned: "Colour goes with your personality. You have to feel comfortable being looked at. What you want to hear is 'you look so great,' not 'I love the dress."

Online fashion guide Dressed and Pressed suggests that patterned tights or hosiery and socks in bright colours can be a great way of colour blocking and adding an unusual touch to an ensemble.
