Wrong tights can 'break a party look'
Hosiery can make or break a party look, a national style expert has stated.

Polly Vernon said that people looking for the wrong thing to wear at a get-together should invest in nude tights, fishnets or nothing for their legs at all.

However, those going for the all-out fashionable look to turn heads at a bash should get over-the-knee socks, wet-look leggings and tartan-printed tights, with the ever-reliable black opaques a staple for all.

After highlighting these trends, Ms Vernon continued in her piece for the Observer: "PS: the deliberately laddered tight is all the rage among this season's young people. We say: Wow! Directional! And yet: Not for us, thanks. And PPS: yes, you can still wear black opaques."

This autumn, Katie Holmes - Mrs Tom Cruise - established herself as a firm proponent of the leggings lifestyle.
