•Since fashion on a whole seems to get braver and bolder season upon season (hello, obsession with lingerie as outerwear!) it's no surprise that mock suspender tights have been growing in popularity over the last year or so. The first pair I remember setting my heart on were by House of Holland for Pretty Polly and I vaguely remember searching the depth and breadth of Oxford St to locate a pair (eventually found in stockist River Island) to wear under leather shorts and a blue plaid shirt to a party.

The aim of the game is to add a little edge, glamour and flirt to an outfit that a pair of opaques just aren't capable of, and whilst they give the illusion that you've braved stockings and suspenders you're very much in the comfort of tights. I have a few pairs of patterned tights though my HOH mock suspenders are still in favour, especially considering the fact that they're still going strong after so much wear! Here are a selection of my current faves from the high street (minus Wolford which is definitely not a high street price, but all the same, they are gorgeous!) xoxo

1. Jonathan Aston Tuxedo Bow Tights @ House of Fraser £14
2. HOH Pearly Suspender Tights @ Pretty Polly £25
3. Wolford Brilliant Lace Up Tights @ net-a-porter.com £120
4. Pamela Mann Over The Knee Stripe Tights @ motelrocks.com £9
