Fashion “controversies” never cease to amaze us – first of all it was Kate Middleton’s nude tights, now her mum Carole has been making waves with her own legwear. Stepping out in Chelsea yesterday in a chic black ensemble, Mrs. Middleton teamed a double breasted black coat with lacey patterned tights.
The world immediately declared themselves shocked at her (and I quote) “awful” choice of hosiery. Erm… really? Many have criticised her for dressing too young, because her hemline was – shock horror – about three inches above the knee.
What’s all the fuss about? It’s not like she’s parading round in a minidress and fishnet stockings (though Madonna, 55, frequently does) – it’s a pretty standard outfit in our opinion – not quite Lady Gaga. In fact here at MyTights HQ we think she looks sensational! The look was elegant and pulled together, with nothing revealing or trashy – in fact it was so conservative it might even have bordered on boring, were it not for the fabulous lace tights covering her (amazing!) legs.
Too old? You’re never too old for fashion. In fact she reminds us a little of national treasure Dame Helen Mirren, who at 68 doesn’t let her age stop he from wearing fabulous frocks and bikinis without a care – and in our opinion Mrs.Middleton looks just as great as The Queen actress always does. And if we look half as good as Carole does when we’re her age, we’ll be more than happy. So we say bah humbug to all the haters – we heart Carole’s style!
There are loads of fashion styles you can rock that are perfectly subtle enough to work with even a conservative dresser – here are our top picks for getting Carole’s look…
