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".
