The vintage look is undergoing a revival, helped along by stars such as Kiera Knightly, and according to one source a good quality pair of tights is a centrepiece to the style.
Entertainmentwise.com said the Atonement star was recently spotted coming out of a performance of The Children's Hour in a corduroy skirt, black tights
and old-fashioned brown brogues.
The shoes in particular are "so wearable and will look fab with ankle socks
this summer", said the website.
Meanwhile, fashion student Sarah Kellaghan recently showed her own interpretation of the vintage trend to the Irish Independent, with an acid-yellow swing coat paired with white polka-dot tights
and Converse shoes.
"I love how you can always put your own stamp on any item and also the quality of vintage fashion," she told the newspaper.
