DIY Prada Stockings

DIY Prada Stockings

000003726 Remember when I bought those Prada stockings that cost the best part of $100?  Well, I’m kicking myself now because according to UK Grazia magazine, a good tip to get the look on the cheap is to buy a pair of John Lewis Jonelle (a British department store children’s school uniform range) grey ribbed tights and cut off the top et voila…….Prada look-a-like knee highs!

This tip also comes from an insider at Prada…. so I’m sure if I go to John Lewis, the Jonelle tights sections will be suspiciously crowded and emptied of stock!

    Hey that post is so nice of you. You might remember my post on the tfs “today’s wear” thread? Me (ms.jade) and my fake prada socks? Now I’d totally recommend cutting off tights. It’s the best a fashion addict student can do to its conctantly empty purse

    Thanks for the advice! Unfortunately, I do not live in Britain where I can purchase those tights, but I’ll keep looking for alternatives.

    Maybe its wrong of me to still want the Prada socks, out of all the alternatives?

    Well…I fell for the real thing. I still kinda don’t regret it despite this MUCH cheaper option. By the way Jane: If you read the left column, I might be able to help you get them!

    Ho ho…I just nabbed the last pair online (I actually just need grey cotton tights – I get black ones from Jonelle ALL the time – they’re the best!) but you know what, I think they actually have more Prada a-like grey tights instore as opposed to online so I will go investigate tomorrow! If ppl do want me to pick some up email me!
    Fairy: They’re cheap, £6-£8 for two pairs.
    And thanks SwanDiamond… that’s very sweet of you to say!

    I am tempted to try this, but won’t the tights fringe? I can’t get hold of those, but I have to check if H&M has something that will work. I saw they had grey tights the last time I was there…
