Where can I buy tights? I'm quite tall (but my legs are skinny) so don't say the Lanes because the tights sold there only reach about mid-thigh. Going to Great Lengths, Wan Chai The Dictator rules: We realise the stockings and tights sold in the markets tend to be 'one size fits all' - the 'all' referring to women of the short and thin variety. The secret is something we experts like to call 'sizing'. Genius. At the high end, shop assistants are well versed in it. At Fogal (2/F, The Landmark, Central, tel: 2526 1751), for example, a chart can be used to determine your size based on height and weight. Tights here cost from HK$390 to HK$590. Too pricey? Marks & Spencer (28 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2921 8323) might surprise the snobs out there with a sizing chart on the back of each pack (HK$85 to HK$195). Even H&M (68 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2110 9546; HK$29.90 to HK$99) accurately lists sizes. One more thing: stop complaining about your long, skinny legs. You're either showing off or whinging. Neither is attractive. I never would have considered animal print in my younger days but I saw a leopard-print cardigan on The Sartorialist blog. Now I want one. Where can I find such a thing? Scaredy Cat, Clear Water Bay The Dictator: Rrroar. Nothing says 'cougar' like the lethal cocktail of desperation and leopard print. Lots of designers are having fun with animal prints in their current collections. Chloe has print-patterned cardigans in muted cotton (HK$7,220; Mandarin Oriental Hotel, tel: 2865 2833). That might sound steep but this is one item where if you go cheap, you will look it. Salvatore Ferragamo offers an understated cotton and silk twin set (HK$8,800; Mandarin Oriental Hotel, tel: 2523 0899). Christopher Kane does a sportier, luxe cashmere, zip-up jacket in grey or orange leopard print (HK$28,500; Joyce, 16 Queen's Road Central, tel: 2522 7402). Before you hiss at me, here are some less expensive versions. Rebecca Taylor does one in pink cotton (HK$2,100; Seibu, Pacific Place, Admiralty, tel: 2971 3888) and a zebra print cashmere and silk number (HK$3,600). I'd like to get some of those extra-long wife-beater singlets that fit a young person's budget? I'm sure you don't like them but I think they look more up-to-date than the normal ones. Taking Cover, Pok Fu Lam The Dictator: Can we please per-suade you to drop that awful term and say 'tank top' instead? The best deal in town is at Cotton On (HK$80 for two; or HK$59 to HK$99 each; 2 D'Aguilar Street, Central, tel: 2537 4279). They carry so many colours and styles, that this should be your one-stop shop. But it's not your only choice. Stroll through the markets (Jardine's Bazaar, Ladies Market, the Lanes, etc) and you'll see them in every colour for about HK$29 each. Fashion brands such as Armani Exchange embellish their hip-hugging tanks with motifs, words or crystals (HK$590; Pacific Place, tel: 2537 3118). One warning though: you might think this is a clever cover-up but it's about as effective as the old 'jumper wrapped around waist' trick. A muffin top is a muffin top, regardless of how it is dressed.
