Flaunt your legs and your style

Fendi's knit tights make a statement and are cosy too!Here’s DolceDolce’s Amber Burns, with the lowdown on trendy legwear: 

As the winter cold sets in, I’m thrilled that tights have again secured a spot as a staple accessory.  No longer are tights simply used to extend the life of a fabulous cocktail dress or to appease conservative co-workers at the office. 
 
This season, designers have pushed tights to new levels by incorporating unexpected, yet classically chic, textures and prints. Legwear has come a long way since our mother’s nude hosiery.
 
Sweater knits covered legs at Fendi  this year.  Rich colours in eye-catching textures graced the runways, complementing impeccably tailored silhouettes.  Sweater knits work great in neutrals as well; a camel-coloured knit pairs perfectly with a chunky Mary Jane heel and a statement-coloured trench.
 
Bright hosiery is also a hot trend this season.  Remember to mix, not match, patterned shoes and hose.  Create colour schemes that demand attention.  Reference a color wheel to find complementary combinations and dare to be different.  A great leopard pump will pair whimsically with kelly green tights.
