Tights 'transform tired outfits'
Hosiery can utterly transform an outfit, meaning a good pair of tights is an important economic investment, an expert has suggested.

Reporter Katy Smail, writing for publication MyFashionLife, made her comments after attending several of the autumn/winter catwalks, which she described as a "feast for the legs".

However, she said the stylistic offerings displayed at the various fashion events have curbed her enthusiasm for block-coloured tights.

Now, Ms Smail admits she is "lusting after" patterned tights to give her "lace-spun and romantic legs".

Despite her new-found enthusiasm, the fashion reporter admitted she is not quite ready for some of the bolder hosiery looks being sported by the world's fashionistas.

"There was the modern take on fishnets at Rodarte which, although an excellent accessory for 'slasher movie' chic, were not quite enough to coax my fishnets out of the dressing up box," she added.

However, not everybody loves every look and fishnet tights do have their fans.

UKTV Style's website recently highlighted that many of the country's favourite celebrities have been wearing some fairly extreme legwear and remarked that wide fishnet tights can make an outfit really "turn heads".
