Vivienne Westwood: Hosiery creates elegance
Tights are perfect for women looking to glam up their outfits as they "flatter and protect" their legs, a fashion designer has commented.

Vivienne Westwood made her comments to the Edinburgh Evening News, noting that hosiery choices add elegance to ensembles.

However, she added that Doc Marten boots are such an icon in their own right that they do not require the additional chic bestowed by stockings, meaning a simple pair of punky fishnet tights is all the boots need to set them off to perfection.

"Dr Martens are such a classic that there is no need to add anything to them, they are perfect as they are. The tights are used purely for that element of glamour," the designer added.

The company notes that its famous boots were first launched as a working man's footwear but quickly became a must-have for rebellious teenagers and social dissidents.
