Thick black tights 'are glorious'
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.
