It can be very depressing when a much-loved pair of brightly coloured or patterned tights finally ladder but one thrifty shopper has come up with a solution.
Carol, writing for online resource Thrifty Fun, explained that one use for such had-it hosiery
is to transform the stockings
into a headband.
This allows the fashionable but frugal to take advantage of the current fashion for headbands holding hair back from the face, she enthused.
Furthermore, using stretchy stockings
in this way prevents those dents plastic hair bands can leave in a person's head, Carol continued.
"Cut off a leg and cut the foot part off. Wrap around your head, stretching so you have some tension to hold it in place once it's on. Then cut to desired length," the frugal fashionista explained.
The website has many tips, including recommending women store their tights
in old toilet paper tubes – to prevent them from tangling or getting caught and running.
