The Joy of Trompe l'oeil

The season of autumn/winter always evokes an obsession with quirky yet cool hosiery and lucky for us there seems to be a serious abundance of them. Last winter it was all about the death of the fishnet and the rise of the coloured high denier opaque, whether it was in shocking pink or marl grey. In stark contrast this season is sexing up hosiery (thanks to who else but Kaiser Karl?) Who has done a witty take on the stocking/hold-up with a daringly sexy collection of Chanel tights. Who couldn't love these Trompe l'oeil cuties? They are infinitely more flattering and wearable than a true stocking...Don't you think? Style them with a defiantly short, but long sleeved black shift to ensure plenty of double-takes.
