If you like the fuzzy-gritty pop band Dum Dum Girls (or have browsed a fair amount of music journalism this year), you know that singer/guitarist Dee Dee never takes off her sheer, black, vertical striped tights. Seriously: they’ve been donned in every press photo, live photo, and when I saw her band play at South by Southwest a few months ago. My thoughts during that hot afternoon by the tented stage:
1)Here, girl with sensitive hearing, you can have my earplugs.
2) I LOVE THOSE TIGHTS.
These are more mature, less Halloween than black and white horizontal stripes. Plus, they make your legs look a mile long.
Complete the look with black short shorts and red lipstick. Turn up the reverb on your amp and you’re all set.
