I was cleaning out my wardrobe the other day and whilst reorganising my wardrobe into tops, bottoms, dresses and coats, I noticed something. I own about four pairs of pants but about 40 pairs of tights. This is probably due to the fact that I became the owner of quite a collection of black opaque tights when going through high school, some four years ago. So in an effort to balance this out (if there is so much yin, it’s only natural to balance it out with equal parts yang, right?), I picked up this happy chappy pair on a late night Topshop browse last week. I’m telling myself that it’s definitely time to graduate from wearing tights five days a week. Fifth year of uni starts today, surely that’s not five years too late?
