Another day, another photo of US It girl Paris Hilton flashing her suspender tights. We’ve lost count of how many times we’ve spotted the notorious party girl flaunting her mock stocking tops- she stepped out for dinner at the weekend with boyfriend River Viperi wearing a pair of the Pretty Polly Suspender Tights teamed with an animal print green silk minidress and lace up shoe boots. Now, we’re all for suspender tights – we love the iconic design worn by celebs such as Rihanna and Made In Chelsea’s Caggie Dunlop – but we do think maybe Paris could try something a little different next time. It was only a few weeks ago that we last spotted her in the style out celebrating her birthday in mid-February.
Over knee socks give a similar look and were spotted all over the catwalks at London Fashion Week, so you can them them with the confidence that you’re right on trend. Ribbed and cable styles, like the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks, were paraded on the catwalks, and at the Mark Fast show we spotted colour pop net over the knee designs. Of course if you’re just looking for classic over the knee socks we highly recommend the Jonathan Aston Over The Knee Socks, which come in black or grey and have a soft, matte finish.
Another alternative to the classic design is to go for something a little sweeter and girlier. There are loads of other mock hold up styles with a more feminine touch, like the Pamela Mann Spotty mock Suspender Tights, which feature a mock lace top and cute spotty patterned leg. These can be worn with a longer skirt for a demure daytime look –
then swap for cocktail shorts or a micro mini to show of the suspender design in the evening!
Come on Paris – we’ve heard that you only wear most of your outfits once, so ditch the old suspender tights and try something new for your pins…
