One fashion agony aunt has given her tips on what is the best choice for ladies' legs and what should under all circumstances be avoided.
Thick black tights
are "glorious", especially ones made of cashmere, according to the Guardian's Hadley Freeman.
She says this type of women's hosiery
is both "cosy and flattering" and can come in a range of colours such as pale grey, heather and tan.
Meanwhile, tan tights
are apparently not Ms Freedman's favourite, saying that wearing this legwear
option will not make anyone look like they have a tan.
"If you're wearing tights, embrace the tights!" she advised.
And it seems that a majority of women may agree with her, after a poll of Elle readers showed that 74 per cent prefer to go for a good wax and light dose of fake tan instead of sheer tights.
