Catch a leggy trend

Dress up an old LBD with sexy lace tights --these are by GucciBored with all your clothes, but still pinched from holiday shopping? Update your wardrobe with a pair of sexy new tights. Or, pair old favourites with striking new hose for an instant update.

If you are petite, lengthen your legs by matching your stockings to your boots or shoes. For a slimming trendy look, match solid colour tights to your dress.
To dress up a simple black dress up for a date, try adding subtly-patterned lace hose. But do not go too big or wild, or it will detract from your legs. 
If your legs are less-than-perfect, invest in high-quality black tights such as Woolford or something similar with a slightly glossy finish and high Spandex count. They will make your legs look fabulous. They are a bit pricey, but if you wash them carefully, they will last a long time.
