Cameron shows us his socks

Cameron shows us his socks
Shopping for new clothes is probably not at the top of a prime minister's list of priorities.

Is that, however, an excuse to go on national television in a pair of socks with a gaping hole in them?

David Cameron appeared on ITV's This Morning wearing a pair of classic black mens socks that looked a little worse for wear.

So large was the hole that attentive viewers were able to catch a glimpse as the prime minister spoke to presenters Philip Schofield and Holly Willoughby.

They asked Mr Cameron about the leaked letter from Dr Liam Fox regarding cuts to the defence budget.

"I would never betray our armed forces. I think every day of what they're doing in Afghanistan," he answered.

His comments should come as a morale boost to troops serving in the country, many of whom have recently been receiving socks sent to them from campaigners and fundraisers.

School children wear pink socks for breast cancer awareness

School children wear pink socks for breast cancer awareness
American footballers are not normally associated with the colour pink, no doubt seen as a little feminine for such a hard sport.

However, that is just why some high school American footballers in Canada have stepped out in pink socks to help raise awareness for breast cancer.

To mark Breast Cancer Awareness month, Fermi High School's football team wore the sports socks for a match, the Hartford Courant has reported.

Meanwhile, tdn.com reports that Kelso High's team did exactly the same for a match against Fort Vancouver.

Kelso head coach Pat Hymes told the news provider: "We wanted to wear pink, but there is not much change you can make to the uniforms... so we thought why not pink socks?"

According to Breast Cancer Care, 46,000 people are diagnosed with the condition every year.

Black opaque tights are 'status classics'

Black opaque tights are 'status classics'
There are all sorts of hierarchies when it comes to fashion, with clothes and accessories saying a lot about a person.

Tights, it seems, are no exception, according to the Guardian's Jess Cartner-Morley, who suggests that this particular example of legwear is "even less glamorous than socks".

However, when looking at hosiery, black opaque tights are the top of the tree, she explained.

Nude tights, on the other hand, are decidedly at the bottom of the pile, although Ms Cartner-Morley thinks that technology may be about to change this.

"This could be the winter of the American tan tight," she concluded.

Hadley Freeman, writing in the same newspaper, recently claimed that thick black tights are "glorious", especially those made of cashmere, which she describes as "cosy and flattering".

Rihanna steps out in socks and high heels

Rihanna steps out in socks and high heels
US pop star Rihanna was able to leave her umbrella behind as she walked out of her London hotel yesterday (October 4th).

The singer was snapped in a pair of white ankle socks and brown high-heeled shoes as she went out and about in the capital.

She teamed the socks and shoes combo with a white tutu, long grey jacket and topped it all off with a shock of bright red hair.

Her sense of style raises the question of whether the much-maligned fashion combination of wearing ladies socks with elegant shoes or a pair of sandals is becoming a trend in the pop world.

Recently, Models Direct advised women that they should go for dark cotton socks or black tights with a pair of shoes for a chic look this autumn.

Are patterned tights a part of the 'punky feel' for next spring?

Are patterned tights a part of the 'punky feel' for next spring?
There is a definite feel of punk about the designs coming out for spring/summer 2011, it has been claimed.

Women shopping for patterned tights or fishnet stockings may find that prints like tartan are in, according to Oonagh Brennan, fashion director at Company.

She explained that there is lots of check and dogtooth prints around.

"There's been quite a lot of punk as well, it's really interesting colourful punk though, as opposed to moody dark punk – almost a bit of an early nineties feeling Vivienne Westwood-esque punk," Ms Brennan added.

She added that there is a lot of tartan mixing in with fluoros at the moment, which gives a modern touch to the traditional punk rocker look.

Christophe Decarnin, designer for Balmain, which recently revealed its summer 2011 styles, told the New York Times recently that he loves punk.

Fashionable boots over tights 'mean business'

Fashionable boots over tights 'mean business'
Looking the part at an interview can mean the difference between being overlooked and landing a dream job.

Women should wear "boots that mean business" over their tights or stockings, according to one fashion expert.

Bethanie Lunn, author of the Modern Girl's Guide to Fabulousness, believes that women need to act and look the part at an interview.

She explained that it is important to dress for the role you want and take inspiration from those already in the types of jobs you are after.

"Tuxedo pants with panelling down the side worn with a fitted blazer and white or ivory ruffled shirt, and boots that mean business will see you through," she advised.

As part of October Fashion Month, Meadowhall Shopping Centre in Sheffield is giving men and women tips on how to look good in the workplace.

Rihanna socks turn blue

Rihanna socks turn blue
Following a brief stint in London, pop star Rihanna has hopped across the channel for a fashion show in Paris.

And she is showing no signs of dropping her avant-garde approach to legwear, rocking up to the Miu Miu read-to-wear fashion event in the French capital in a pair of blue ankle socks.

The 22-year-old came over all Wizard of Oz in a pair of shiny red heels that contrasted sharply with the socks and matched her bright scarlet hair and lipstick.

Her sense of style when it comes to ladies socks hit the headlines recently when she stepped out in London in a pair of white cotton socks and brown heels.

Rihanna wore this combination with a white tutu and a long grey jacket, while in Paris she opted for a calf-length dress by Miu Miu.

Sacre Coeur! Church wears heart on her tights

Sacre Coeur! Church wears heart on her tights
After a highly-publicised break-up with rugby-turned-dance star Gavin Henson, it seems Charlotte Church is showing no signs of wearing her heart on her sleeve.

The diva rocked up to Key 103 radio studios in Manchester in a pair of two-tone suspender tights replete with heart detailing above the knee.

Her short ankle boots, horizontal-striped woollen dress and woolly cardigan completed the elegantly casual look.

New boyfriend Johnny Powell, who co-wrote her new album Back to Scratch, joined her at the studios with his guitar in-tow.

Speaking about her new beau, Charlotte told Hello magazine recently: "It's great because we like the same stuff. He's very intelligent, very clever and he's an amazing musician. That's where most of the bond lies."

Vancouver launches appeal for socks

Vancouver launches appeal for socks
A charity in the Canadian city of Vancouver is calling for donations of a clothing nature to help people living rough on the streets, it has been reported.

Share of Vancouver is calling on people to donate socks of all sorts to help the homeless, The Portlander has reported.

The Operation Sole Mates Sock Drive is aimed at providing clean ladies and mens socks to the needy to help them stave off conditions such as athlete's foot and more dangerously as winter approaches, frostbite.

"Socks are one of the least donated, yet most needed items," Diane McWithey, executive director of the charity told the newspaper.

"They are a renewable need that is constant for our clients, year-round."

KIMT 3 News recently reported on an Iowan mother's campaign to collect socks for soldiers in Afghanistan.

Stacey Solomon shows she still has the X-Factor with patterned tights

Stacey Solomon shows she still has the X-Factor with patterned tights
As the new series of ITV's X-Factor begins to take shape with the pop wannabes starting to perform live, people could be accused of forgetting those who have come before.

However, former contestant Stacey Solomon, who came third in last year's competition, shows she is in no mood to be ignored.

She stepped out in London for her 21st birthday in a pair of chic charcoal-grey patterned tights.

Her hosiery choice was teamed with a short white shift dress, which was snapped as she headed to London club Whisky Mist.

The singer recently sported some stockings for a photo shoot with Closer magazine, wearing patterned tights with leopard print pants.

In another shot, she made a break with her Essex-girl image and wore a tweed jacket and riding trousers.

Stockings decorated for soldiers

Stockings decorated for soldiers
Soldiers serving in foreign countries over the Christmas period no doubt feel a little homesick being so far from their families.

One group of Girl Scouts in the US, however, are doing to their bit to bring a bit of yuletide cheer to US soldiers stationed abroad, the Newark Advocate reports.

Around 100 girls have been decorating stockings and Christmas cards as part of the Operation Spirit, which aims to lift troops' morale by showing appreciation for what they do.

One 12-year-old, Autumn Agnew told the news provider: "It's really fun to get to help out soldiers. It makes them happy, and I hope it puts a smile on their faces."

The news comes as the Portlander reports that the city of Vancouver in Canada is requesting people to donate clean socks to provide homeless people with warm legwear as winter sets in.

The Sock Keeper unravels legwear mysteries for kids

The Sock Keeper unravels legwear mysteries for kids
A new children's book seeks to reassure kids about one of the world's longest-standing mysteries - disappearing clothes.

Fabiana Cavelaris' new book, the Sock Keeper, may be reassuring to many younger children, who may imagine some terrible monster responsible for missing leg wear.

This is certainly what the book's protagonist, a boy named Hubert, thinks.

However, the story quickly reveals to its readers that it is not some malicious monster that is stealing Hubert's socks, but instead a global conspiracy involving other children and the Post Office.

Despite all the hilarity, at the heart of the story is an important moral about having compassion for others.

Meanwhile, British author Garry Vaux has also penned a new children's book that concerns itself with disappearing socks, as well as other strange everyday occurrences that puzzle even the cleverest adults, reports S&B Media.

Women preparing Christmas stockings for soldiers

Women preparing Christmas stockings for soldiers
Soldiers serving in Afghanistan an d Iraq seem to be receiving all kinds of support from civilians back home who appreciate their efforts.

Of these, many seem to be legwear related, with warm socks and sports socks donated and even decorated stockings from girl scouts.

The latest charity drive sees members of the Contemporary Woman's Club of Washington Township in the US preparing Christmas stockings for troops on the frontline, NorthJersey.com reports.

And once again socks are involved, with the ladies including mens socks with gum, playing cards, batteries and all kinds of assorted items.

In addition, the news provider reports that some greetings have been included by the women to add a personal touch.

This week, it was reported by the Newark Advocate that girls scouts in the US are decorating cards and stockings for soldiers.

Armstrong lands on fine for socks

Armstrong lands on fine for socks
American footballers are not normally associated with too many wardrobe malfunctions in their playing careers.

However, one Washington Redskins receiver has experienced just that, after struggling to find the zipper on his trousers after a kit change.

And that was just the start of an eventful game for Anthony Armstrong, who was also fined for wearing his socks too high.

Although the sports socks issue is something to forget, he will probably remember the match against Green Bay forever as he took a 48-yard pass to score the winning touchdown for his team - his first in the NFL.

Thigh-high socks aside, it must have been a great game for the new kid on the block.

Meanwhile, David Beckham recently hit the headlines for his choice of compression socks to aid recovery from an injury.

SJP in the city with spotty tights
Women looking for style tips have often turned to Sarah Jessica Parker for a few ideas.

And the star of Sex in the City shows no signs of losing her touch when it comes to adding a spot of glamour to a classic look.

SJP rocked up the Empire State Pride Agenda gala dinner in New York in a little black number and spotty tights.

Glamour magazine thinks her look is hot, advising women to follow suit and invest in a few pairs of black tights that will "update your cocktail frocks and keep your pins bang on-trend".

The actress recently hinted that a third instalment of the Sex and the City film series may be on the cards.

"I don't know the future; I would say that you never know what will happen with that particular franchise," she told the Vulture blog.

Sock monster conspiracy revealed in new book

Sock monster conspiracy revealed in new book
Monsters are the real explanation for bizarre, unexplainable phenomena that happen every day, according to author Garry Vaux.

In his new book House Demons, Mr Vaux attempts to explain why the idea of an invisible Sock Monster may be among the best explanations for missing tights and other legwear available, reports S&B Media.

He told the news service: "It's about explaining things that happen during the day that most people don’t really think about.

"If you stop for a moment you realise there must be a reason why these things happen."

Mr Vaux says that his book is based on research, primarily the studies of Victor Grimble, a former professor of electrical engineering at Kingston University.

House Demons follows the publication of a children's book by Fabiana Cavelaris, which concerns the phenomenon of lost socks.

However, unlike Mr Vaux's title, The Sock Keeper seeks to offer an alternative fictional conspiracy theory explaining the disappearance of leg wear.

Pixie Lott dons football socks for Soccer AM

Pixie Lott dons football socks for Soccer AM
Pixie Lott was pictured wearing knee-length football style leg wear with a short black dress for her appearance on Sky's Soccer AM.

The 19-year-old dressed for the occasion with white, knee-length socks with two black stripes, as she filmed a segment for the sports show.

She even found time to pose for a photograph with a soldier outside Soccer AM's West London studios, no doubt making his day.

Pixie's fun socks showed off the unique sense of style and enjoyment of fashion that she is becoming known for.

It would appear that long socks are fast becoming a staple of her wardrobe after being pictured in them at several events.

The stylish singer launched her own fashion collection for Lipsy at House of Fraser last month and turned up to the launch event in knee-high black socks.

Sock bunnies for charity

Sock bunnies for charity
A children's welfare group in Taiwan is a selling stuffed toys made from footwear, with proceeds going to disadvantaged families, reports the Taipei times.

The sock bunnies are being sewn by mothers who do not have enough money to support their families and are selling at about NT$350 (£7) each.

Participating mothers were provided with cotton and socks and received NT$100 (£2) for the completion of each bunny, with the remaining NT$180 (£3.80) going to a children's fund.

At a press conference on Saturday, Abby Chen, deputy director in resource development at Child Welfare League Foundation, explained the aims of the project.

"We didn't expect this to be a long-term project. What we wanted to achieve through this project was to give confidence and skills to these mothers who were discouraged from the job market due to their poor academic backgrounds," she said, according to the Taipei Times.

Sewing animals from socks is not a new concept - Operation Sock Monkey is currently supporting the Clowns Without Borders South Africa scheme which provides help to communities affected by AIDS. People make toy monkeys from socks and they are sold with the proceeds going to the charity.

£300 socks branded 'Unsightly'

£300 socks branded 'Unsightly'
Gasps of horror and dismay echoed round the fashion world yesterday as a designer brand finally unveiled its new $500 (£317) socks.

The crocheted socks have been deemed impractical as they are holey and un-washable, being stitched from mohair and alpaca wool.

As you would expect for that price, the socks are hand-knitted and are aesthetically interesting, featuring a multicoloured palette of purple, orange, blue and grey.

Most New Yorkers are baffled by the hosiery, although some high-end fashion fans are taken with the socks.

MSN TODAY style editor Bobbie Thomas is not sure the new item will catch on.

"With any trend, you can be sure creative minds will explore the limits of luxury and a specific woman willing to splurge. However, the average American woman may not consider something so delicate with a short life span an 'investment' item," she said.

Knee high socks have proved to be a big trend this autumn, with plenty featured on the catwalk and celebs such as Linday Lohan and Pixie Lott sporting them when out and about.

Taylor Swift does London in knee-high socks

Taylor Swift does London in knee-high socks
All-American country star Taylor Swift hit London in style earlier this week, sporting a sophisticated black ensemble brought together by dark knee-high socks.

Swift was reportedly in the capital for a photoshoot for GQ magazine which took place in an upmarket hotel.

The stylish singer was pictured in a black blazer over a lacy dress of the same colour, which she teamed with black knee high socks to give the outfit an edge.

According to reports, the stunning 20-year-old is on a promotional tour for her new album Speak Now and had travelled overnight from Paris for the shoot.

Speak Now, Swift's much-hyped third album, is due to be released later this month.

Knee-high socks have been massive this season and the trend looks set to continue, with celebrities such as Pixie Lott and Lindsay Lohan stepping out in the fashionable footwear.

Internet outcry over hairy leg tights

Internet outcry over hairy leg tights

A pair of tights which make the model look as if she has extremely hairy legs has become an accidental internet hit over the last week.

The lace tights are fawn in colour and give the distinct impression of unshaven legs, which has caused the photo to be taken down, to go viral.

Once it was established that the unusual look was not the result of a mischievous photo shopper, the tights were dubbed 'hairy leg tights' and ridiculed by online fashion bloggers.

Consequently, the company responsible for this style faux pas have switched the original photo for an almost identical one where the model is now sporting black patterned tights.

The tights are described on the retailer's site as an "essential ingredient in the season's textural mash-up", as patterned tights are expected to be a big hit this winter.

Cheryl dons zebra print tights for X Factor performance
X Factor judge Cheryl Cole appeared on the other side of the stage on Sunday when she momentarily abandoned her judging duties to promote new single, Promise This.

The Geordie singer appeared in zebra-print tights for the performance, which she teamed with leather boots, a black and white jacket and edgy red hair for a smoking hot look on the Sunday night results show.

The performance of her new single, taken from second solo album Messy Little Raindrops, received a standing ovation from the rest of the judging panel, with Louis Walsh even saying he "absolutely loved it".

Following her performance, the pop star said: "Yeah I really enjoyed it. It's amazing to be on this side of the stage."

Cheryl has come under fire on Twitter for allegedly miming part of her performance on the show, with the Sun reporting a source saying: "Cheryl's routine was very energetic. It wasn't possible to sing it all."

Lady Gaga wears lacy tights in London

Lady Gaga wears lacy tights in London

Lady Gaga wore lacy tights as part of a gothic 'mad scientist' ensemble that had many onlookers wondering whether Halloween had come early this year.

The American singer, who is notorious for headline-grabbing outfits, sported the look on Saturday (October 23rd) while filming on London's Southbank.

Gaga paired the black lacy tights with trademark sky-high heels and a black, gothic-style dress covered in zips as well as golden 'mad scientist' glasses.

However, this latest look could be considered tame when compared to some of the singer's other creations such as the infamous 'meat dress' she wore to this year's MTV Video Music Awards and a poncho sewn from toy Kermit the Frogs she donned for a German TV interview.

The eccentric 24-year-old was in London to resume her world tour off the back of hit album The Fame and is currently working on a follow up: Born This Way.

The leg wear worn by Cheryl Cole during the performance of her new single on the X Factor last weekend has sent sales of tights rocketing.

Women everywhere have been rushing to the shops to get Cheryl's look, so much so that some stockists have completely sold out, according to the Daily Mirror.

Pairing the tights with a black and white jacket and black boots, the Girls Aloud member showed off a contemporary fashion look and looked amazing as she did so.

This news demonstrates the massive influence reality talent show the X Factor has on British consumers.

The X Factor performance aired on Sunday, the day after a revealing interview with the star on Piers Morgan's Life Stories brought in a record audience of over seven million, showing her popularity.

Katie Price dresses as secretary in fishnet tights for book launch
Katie Price dressed somewhat uncharacteristically in the style of a serious secretary for the launch of her fourth book.

As always, there was a Katie Price twist to the outfit as the glamour model paired fishnet tights with a pencil skirt and revealing silk blouse.

She also added to the look with a veiled trilby hat, thick-rimmed black glasses, a black patent corset belt and stiletto heels. After all, Katie is not known for understated style.

Price made an emotional tribute to ex-husband Peter Andre at the book launch, dedicating the new autobiography to him, while barely mentioning now-husband Alex Reid.

She said: "I also thank him for taking me on a wonderful journey of self discovery. I've turned from a cocooned chrysalis into the butterfly that I am today."

The mother-of-three was promoting her latest autobiography at Waterstones in Picadilly.

This news comes after a week of strange outfits including Lady Gaga's mad scientist ensemble incorporating black lacy tights.

Kym Marsh steps out in lacy black leg wear, the day after announcing that she is pregnant again.

The soap star unveiled a glam new look, pairing the tights with sky-high black heels and a smart black coat.

Kym, who plays Michelle Connor in Coronation Street, also sported an edgy new hairdo with her black hair scraped on top of her head in a curly style.

But yesterday she announced that she is "delighted" to be expecting a new baby with Hollyoaks actor and fiance Jamie Lomas.

Kym, 34, has two other children: David, 15, and Emily, 13, from a previous relationship.
