Evidence for the prosecution

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 28-Jan-13 09:31:49

I was about to say YABU but on looking at the evidence...

She is a very attractive lady and I like her dress. Why is she ruining it with those '80s horrors? Black opaques would have been better but then I think that everything looks better with black opaques so I probably shouldn't really have an opinion on this...

I think sheer black tights are coming back. Heaven help us all.

Trills Mon 28-Jan-13 09:41:48

I don't know who that is.

I strongly dislike black tights that are not opaque.

Mrsrobertduvall Mon 28-Jan-13 09:58:05

Better than bright orange legs though.

BupcakesAndCunting Mon 28-Jan-13 09:59:13

Yes better than the bright orange legs with the corned beef effect from wearing no tights in mid-winter.

TheReturnoftheSmartArse Mon 28-Jan-13 10:00:51

Oh God, I wear them all the time for work. I had no idea I was making such a faux pas. I promise not to do it again!

HellonHeels Mon 28-Jan-13 10:03:11

I'm not a fan of sheer black tights. Nor of corned beef legs, nor of bare legs unless in summer hols mode or on the beach.

Micronets (black or nude) or opaques are my preferred options. However, sheer black tights are on sale everywhere so someone must be buying them, not just Susanna Reid.

Opaques are forgiving. Sheers are not!

HanneHolm Mon 28-Jan-13 10:15:52

i think they had their place - in the 90s maybe. I think she should have gone sheer or opaque

HanneHolm Mon 28-Jan-13 10:16:09

sheer nude i mean.

and she has them on almost every day on the news

echt Mon 28-Jan-13 10:28:47

What's the problem, OP. You seem to take it as given, with no analysis.

I see a shit frock, nasty heels, and, most importantly, an unforgiving angle.

Nice legs, though.

HanneHolm Mon 28-Jan-13 10:29:19

analysis? like what?

echt Mon 28-Jan-13 10:30:18

Post some sheer nude pix then, OP.

Having said that, I think they always look shite on everyone in RL.

HanneHolm Mon 28-Jan-13 10:30:44

Well yes, you have a point with sheer nude - and under the lights they might just shine

EbbNFlow Mon 28-Jan-13 10:31:45

Very 80s!

I like her, though, so I shall defend her right to wear them :-)

scarletforya Mon 28-Jan-13 10:34:27

The shoes are truly ghastly!

Aman1975 Mon 28-Jan-13 11:19:56

I lurrve Susanna Reid and think she looks gorgeous. I also love the look of women in any tights. Win/win for me!

lovelyladuree Mon 28-Jan-13 11:44:01

She looks lovely in them. In fact she look lovely in everything she wears. I imagine your DH has commented on how sexy she is, so you are feeling the need to slag her off. Jealous post.

noddyholder Mon 28-Jan-13 12:17:53

They are cool again though everyone will be in them by xmas she's ahead of you all!

Flossyfloof Mon 28-Jan-13 12:32:44

I never realised they weren't cool. I have loads of pairs. Particularly hate barely black though. So yabu.

Trills Mon 28-Jan-13 13:01:16

I don't know if they are "cool" or not but I just don't like them. They make weird shadows on your legs.

noddyholder Mon 28-Jan-13 13:01:58

I don't think any black tights would look good with a red dress though

Flossyfloof Mon 28-Jan-13 13:02:45

Actually just looked at the picture and have to agree that doesn't look that nice. So you a only b a bit u

fuckadoodlepoopoo Mon 28-Jan-13 13:13:53

I personally think opaques are old fashioned, probably because they were fashionable when i was a teenager and early twenties so i wore them all the time. So i just find them naff.

Also don't feel the need to slag off the clothes of choice of a woman who happens to be on telly. I find it bitchy and unnecessary, but then perhaps that's just me. Im always uncomfortable with women slagging each other off, especially when its about something as superficial as what clothes they chose to wear. I always think it says a lot more about the one doing the bitching than the one being bitched about.

FreePeaceSweet Mon 28-Jan-13 13:22:49

Was I the only kid sent to the shop for their Mum's barely black or nearly black tights? Every Saturday without fail.

Glittertwins Mon 28-Jan-13 13:26:13

I personally dislike sheer black tights and especially on me. If I had been wearing that red dress, I would wear nude tights. I don't think opaques would be a vast improvement with the shoes she is also wearing.

Startail Mon 28-Jan-13 13:34:41

They are tights, totally inoffensive normal tights.

How on earth could they bother anyone????

CashmereHoodlum Mon 28-Jan-13 13:40:26

I didn't know they were out! I never wear tights so I'm not up to date with trends in tights.

She can wear what she bloody well likes.

GetOrf Mon 28-Jan-13 13:43:43

Who the hell is she?

She looks like she has dressed out of Working Girl.

I borrowed a pair of my dd's tights in an emergency. barely Black (she has to have them that colour as it is part of a uniform). They made my legs look hideous.

Kikithecat Mon 28-Jan-13 14:24:02

So is American Tan back yet then?

HanneHolm Mon 28-Jan-13 15:01:08


You are a crazylady

HanneHolm Mon 28-Jan-13 15:02:26

i wore them a lot when i was working in the 90s. I think "sainsbury's" was my brand of choice

Flossiechops Mon 28-Jan-13 15:06:14

Yanbu!! It's not just the tights though. She has the most hideous taste in clothes. Have you noticed that snake skin jacket she wears? What about the shiny red shirt with the huge bow at the front? I can't understand it, I think she is really attractive and has a lovely figure! confused

Flossiechops Mon 28-Jan-13 15:15:23

Getorf, she's the anchor woman on bbc1 breakfast, I look forward to seeing what she's wearing each morning sad

Autumn12 Mon 28-Jan-13 15:16:51

These have been back in fashion for a while now. Not that I personally woudl wear them.
