Fashion: I get a kick out of you
If all this Indian summer malarkey makes the return to autumn seem just too bleak, why not spice up your sock drawer by updating your opaques? Giles Deacon's latest addition to his Gold collaboration for high-street store New Look is just the ticket, decorating traditional black tights with zip motifs and zebra-esque swirls of ribbon and stripes. Perfect for those heartbroken about covering up their tanned pins – at least this way you can do it in style. From £7.99, newlook.com
