Tights should 'never be worn as trousers'
Although it may be fine to loll around at home wearing tights as a substitute for trousers or shorts, it is not a good idea to do it out-of-doors, according to one fashion writer.

Trisha Gieni, writing for the University of Victoria's Martlet, said that experimenting with the trend on the streets of her hometown proved that after a number of funny looks from passers-by, it made her feel too uncomfortable.

She continued: "It made me a little sad because in all honesty, I love the feeling of wearing tights. They are the comfiest piece of non-clothing I own."

Recently, Justin Timberlake made the news after wearing tights and a leotard for a music video spoof with fellow singer Beyonce.
