A photo that took China’s Twitter by storm this week claims to show the country’s latest fashion trend: “Super sexy, summertime anti-pervert full-leg-of-hair stockings, essential for all young girls going out.”
The image has subsequently gone viral, but besides its rampant popularity, there is nothing else to indicate that this is a real thing, or even that the “photo” is real and not some sort of shop or optical illusion.
But even taking the image at face value, what do the stockings actually accomplish?
One commenter wonders: “If it has come to this, why not just wear pants?”
What do you think?
