Slouchy socks a 'great alternative' to tights
There are two footwear trends to follow this winter, according to the former editor of Marie Claire and the current head honcho of fashion at the Daily Mail.

Liz Jones noted that women will be reaching for clogs soon, now that Vera Wang, Louis Vuitton and Chanel have jumped on the fashion train, though she asserted that high street versions will be available soon.

In regards to hosiery, however, Ms Jones continued: "The second big foot trend is going to be slouchy socks with platform shoes, as seen at Burberry Prorsum. It's a lot sexier than a pair of tights, and also a good way to avoid blisters."

Trends to avoid this season, however, include big hair, hole-filled knitwear and tracksuit bottoms, as the latter will see you putting on four stone as the drawstring helps you forget about your waist.

Liz Jones was famously sacked from her Marie Claire post for referring to a female model as a "bag of bones".
