Hot on the Highstreet Week 36

To reward myself for not buying a piece of clothing since imposing my shopping ban, I have allowed myself one little treat... a pair of the "Henry Holland for Pretty Polly Super Suspender Tights", quite a title isn’t it?!

I first saw these sassy tights featured on a blog a few weeks ago... and have desired them ever since. They are a hassle free way to create that sexy suspender look, can be worn as orthodox black tights if worn with a longer skirt or dress, or reveal a little more leg and patterning with a shorter outfit.

Henry Holland has always been a bold designer, pairing up with crazy model starlet Agnes Deyn and creating 80’s inspired t-shirts with catchphrases such as ‘I’ll tell you who’s boss, Kate Moss’. More recently he has joined forces with tights brand Pretty Polly, and their collaborative legwear has been a hit from the start. Last year he brought out some fabulous alphabet tights that were very popular; for 2011 he seems to be branching out into more illusionistic tights.
These Super Suspender tights are made from strong 40/20 denier with a reinforced toe, and a nice matt finish. The price isn’t too painful at £12 a pair; you can buy them here.

It is also worth checking out the Figleaves website where they have some other funky HH tights in their sale for just £2!
