If you're a fan of retro style you can't get any more authentic than these Original Second World War Rayon Stockings from the Imperial War Museum Gift Shop.
Although one would think authentic forties stockings would be hard to come by, given that war-time shortages of nylons saw women reduced to painting seams up the back of their legs with gravy browning the Imperial War Museum have managed to source some original stock.
The stockings cost £39.99 a pair and are available in small, medium and large here.
Of all the retro prints available in mainstream fashion, leopard print is the one that just isn't going anywhere. While it's much maligned by some, it's an ideal injection of rockabilly flair into any outfit. Especially in the case of these Leopard Print Tights by Wolford.
Made in the classic golden yellow and black, these are ideal for a modern take on fifties flair, allowing a hint of pinup style to be added to any outfit. Making a tricky print easy to wear, the tights definitely still pack some punch that will make a statement out of even the most demure outfit.
