We often find that the combination of a basic dress with statement-making accessories is the best option when we have a packed agenda of upcoming weddings.

Accessories are your best ally: shoes; handbags; and jewellery, both real and costume.
But apart from your usual adornments, this spring, glittering stockings have become one of the most chic demands, as well as the perfect accessory for those who want to don short dresses in the months leading up to summer.
Which stockings are the most glamourous? Chanel’s spectacular bejewelled stockings. We saw them at Paris’ last Haute Couture Fashion Week, where the models’ long legs shone with the glittering of gems at knee-height.
You can also find low-cost alternatives in the lingerie collections of Wolford, Top Shop or the House of Holland. This year, the focus is on accessories like bows or fifties-style polka dots.
Have you got any fabulous stockings in your wardrobe?
