Accessorise your favourite frock with some hot hosiery

An LBD matched with snazzy tights are all you need for the party season, says Katie Wright

While some fashionistas have sworn off tights for good (no matter how cold it gets), Katie Holmes makes a strong case for embracing hosiery with her latest red carpet appearance.

Attending back-to-back events in New York, the 40-year-old actress looked stunning in an all-black ensemble of long-sleeved Saint Laurent dress, sheer spotty tights and suede court heels, which promptly landed her on all the best-dressed celebs lists.

Teamed with a bold red lip and a glossy blow-dry, the mum-of-one channelled Eighties style but in such a chic, understated way.

The former Dawson's Creek star has been killing it on the fashion front and this is one look that's a cinch for anyone to copy.

You've probably already got a favourite little black dress and court heels in your wardrobe, so all you need is a pair of on-trend tights to complete the look.

Hot hosiery is easy to find on the high street right now, with spots, stars and sparkly embellishments making them the perfect addition to your LBD for party season.

Plus, if you're feeling self-conscious about your pasty legs in winter (us too), patterned sheer tights give you a bit of coverage but are still subtly sexy.

We're also loving the return of another Eighties favourite - fishnet tights. They are great for creating a smooth silhouette and are less likely to ladder than delicate 10 denier types, which is a bonus.
