seems shiny tights and stockings are now 'in' fashion in the UK - so says the company that sells tights online. their recent email flyer declared:
Underwear as Outerwear!
Henry Holland gave an insight into this trend last winter and since then designers such as Chanel have launched their editions to the daring look. Wearing your underwear as outerwear works with bodices worn over tops, big pants worn as hot pants and showing the tops of your hold ups. Celebs such as Lilly Alan, Taylor Momsen and Frankie from the Saturdays have all bared their hold ups, what are you waiting for?
could well all just be marketing, though you can go have a look at Tights Please.
