Stockings 'suit young people'
In a recent report for an Indian-based news provider, the legacy of legwear has been noted as more than just a functional way to deal with cold weather.

Narendra Kumar of livemint.com, a partner of the Wall Street Journal, told of how stockings were now an accessory and not a leg warmer, with the style now suiting young people in particular.

She said: "I think stockings look great when young people wear them for a not-too-formal night out.

"They can be teamed with a short or knee-length dress, or worn under a short skirt for a dressed-up, layered look."

However, she added that only the brave dared to wear brightly-coloured stockings, with dark colours suiting almost everybody.

Sometimes stockings are used for much more practical things, a report for Deutsche Presse-Agentur noted, with compression stockings particularly helpful in the fight against varicose veins.
