Yet, current ideas are bucking the trend: tights were deployed to excellent effect on the autumn winter 16 catwalks by Prada cosy grey argyles , Chanel black-out opaques , Gucci bright colours - for the game and gamine only , Burberry knitted patterned versions and Saint Laurent the high maintenance black sheer. This gives extra length, denier and, therefore, strength needed to avoid ladders. W hen I quizzed my mother-in-law and sister-in-law over lunch on Sunday they were both appalled that anyone would spend more than a tenner on a pair.
This week I received this question on Formspring :. Well, no one is, really. This applies, however, only when the tights are opaque, and reasonably thick, and when the shoes are peep toes, not strappy sandals. I also think tights look better when worn with shoes which have a reasonably thick heel.
