Tights 'essential for winter shorts'
Older women in good shape can carry of this winter's trend as long as they follow a few simple rules, according to an expert.

Teri Agins, fashion reporter for the Wall Street Journal, has said that slim older women with long, shapely long legs should be able to pull off the winter trend - as long as they team the shorts with a pair of tights.

Tights have seen as serious renaissance this season, making them the perfect gifts for Christmas.

She also advises that older women should go for ankle or knee-high boots for a flattering look.

Longer, Bermuda style shorts are the most forgiving as they are not too tight, she says.

Women should dress down the shorts, the fashion expert adds, steering clear of anything "too sexy" such as low cut tops or stiletto heels.

This comes after Miley Cyrus was spotted in New York wearing denim shorts with ripped black tights, a biker t-shirt and a tight leather jacket.
