Score: Chanel-Esque Silver Tights For Under $10
As we bask in the afterglow of couture fashion week, we can’t stop obsessing over Lagerfeld’s massively triumphant Chanel collection. Those classic, pastel suits — mousse pinks and baby blues and lavenders — looked as delicious as a bag of robin’s egg candies (or in this case, more like a box of macaroons from a French patisserie), the hair was beyond exquisite, and those silver tights put a young, futuristic spin on the house’s traditional tweed silhouette. We can only imagine how hard it will be to score a pair of those stockings, and who knows if they’ll even end up selling them or if they were made by someone else, but we’re totally inspired. While there are lots of dark gray sparkly tights out there, it’s a bit harder to locate a glittery silver pair. But the lurex tights I tracked down at online hosiery retailer Forward Edge look just about spot-on, no? Also, at $6.99, they couldn’t be further from couture prices.
