64 Deceptive Illusion Tights

From Lumber Leggings to Skeletal Stockings

— June 18, 2012 — Fashion
Some occasions call for simple, sheer nude pantyhose, while others could use a little bit of mystery with these deceptively cool illusion tights. With the growth in patterned accessories, it goes to show consumers are constantly looking to update their looks without blowing budgets.

Illusion tights are a great way to add a whimsical touch to an otherwise simple outfit. Many of these patterned trompe l'oeil options play with your perception and the traditional hosiery shapes. There are sheer variations with gun-clad thighs or leg-scaling climbers that appear as if they are running straight on your limbs. If you are looking for added realism, there are some highly deceptive leggings that provide full coverage in prints like reptile skin and timber.

If you need an easy outfit makeover, consider checking out these decorative illusion tights.
