Until recently, hosiery has been a rather bland, yet staple part of an outfit, a way of keeping the legs warm during the colder months while wearing skirts or dresses. However over the past few seasons hosiery has found a revival. Variations of tights and stockings started creeping onto the shelves, in an array of colours, patterns and lengths. Personally, I LOVE this new revival as tights are a great way to jazz up an outfit, changing it from a dull ensemble to a carefully crafted chic outfit.
The classic black opaques are a staple in any girl's wardrobe and now most girls also seem to own a pair of footless tights (which I'm not overly keen on). I'm a huge fan of white tights, as they help to break up the colours within an outfit, while making it look quite preppy, feminine and almost ballerina-like. I also love grey tights, as they appear less harsh with lighter outifits than black opaques do.
