Trompe-l'oeil Joy

Fast fashion fixes this autumn come in the form of trompe-l'oeil tights. I love the subtle flash of a tattoo on a girl's ankle; but would never go so far as to have my legs adorned top to bottom with body art. However you can have people playing 'has she, hasn't she' in these 'Saylor' tattoo tights by Bebaroque. Infinitely cheaper (and far less painful to remove) than the real thing.

Another alternative is the 'suspender look' tights by House of Holland (for Pretty Polly). This is the natural extension to the 'underwear as outwear' trend that emerged in the Spring and which is still hot this autumn. Pair with a slip dress and of course the ubiquitous black eyeliner for a night out, without having to worry about your hold-ups falling down on the dancefloor.
