Sheer tights comeback 'just in time'
As the sun finally emerges from its cloudy cocoon, women across the country are beginning to panic about their summer wardrobes, it has been suggested.

Fashion reporter Hannah Betts made her comments in an article for the Daily Telegraph, noting that many women are unwilling to bare their legs so early in the year.

However, with the right pair of tights, women can still feel ready for the sun, she continued.

"Bright opaques or leggings will appear more summery than the ubiquitous black. Alternatively, sheer hosiery is back in vogue, but is really only an option for the lithe-limbed," Ms Betts advised.

Recently, online fashion resource WhoWhatWear asserted that finally, after years of being forgotten about in the "proverbial sock drawer" sheer tights have made a sudden comeback.

This, it noted, is despite years of everyone favouring opaque tights.
