Choosing tights 'a tricky affair'
Working out the best pair of tights for each outfit can be a difficult business, an online fashion resource has warned.

Option Lorna, a style blog, has warned women not to assume that just because the sun is out, they can ditch their hosiery.

The website noted that some jobs and events require legs to be covered - and that some women simply prefer to keep their legs covered up.

As a rule of thumb, Option Lorna recommended that opaque tights are the most suitable for the day, while sheer can be an attractive evening choice.

"Never, ever wear a seamed toe -or worse - a reinforced seamed toe with an open-toed shoe or sandal ... It just doesn't look very attractive in whatever the situation," the blog post warned.

Recently, a troubled tights wearer asked Yahoo! Answers how to wear tights with strappy sandals.

The respondents urged her to go for the look as it is extremely fashionable at the moment - but to avoid reinforced toes at all costs!
