Tights are like nail art – if you spend $10 or $20 to try a new trend, and it just doesn’t work, no harm no foul. You can throw them away or bury them at the bottom of your underwear drawer and act like it never happened.
So, does that mean you’d try the latest legwear trend coming out of Germany, melting tights? Clothing company Urb thinks they are the next big thing to hit your thighs since the thighmaster, and are selling 10 styles, in a variety of hues, opacity and drip lengths (eww).
This latex-layered hosiery is not for the fashion faint of heart, and at $60 a pop, trying this trend is no cheap endeavor, either. On the flip side, these out-there pairs are exactly what street style dreams are made of (see: proof! more proof!). They’re also kind of amazing for Halloween costumes, and have that freaky deaky factor a pop star would kill for on the red carpet (say, the MTV Music Awards?). The only question is who will wear this pair first – Ke$ha, Nikki Minaj or Lady Gaga?
