Paris Hilton – an explosion of colour in leggings and rainbow top

Paris Hilton is usually dolled up to the nines everywhere she goes, so it’s been nice to see her adopting a more casual style of late.

Or at least, casual relative to her usual designer dresses. The heiress was spotted this week by CelebrityGossip.net in a sweet rainbow-coloured top embellished with sequins, together with blue leggings and gold court shoes.

It was still smarter than the outfits we wear for popping out to the shops, but she was in LA after all!

However, we did have one quibble with the ensemble – she would probably have been better wearing a longline top with her leggings in order to avoid having too much derriere on show.

If you’re after coloured hosiery, Pamela Mann does some great footless tights which are available from MyTights.com for adding some contrast to your autumn outfits.

They come in an array of hues including purple, grey and a similar blue to Paris’s.

Fearne Cotton glams up in lace patterned tights

We’re more used to seeing her in laid-back trainers and slouchy indie outfits, but Fearne Cotton has proved that she knows how to up the glam factor when she needs to.

The Radio 1 DJ was pictured by the Daily Mail at a charity auction for Macmillan last night wearing a blue velvet dress, gold shoes and some gorgeous black lace patterned tights.

Her long blonde locks were styled in a sleek down do and she added a slick of scarlet lipstick for some added sex appeal, resulting in a great outfit for a winter party.

It looked smart but still super-trendy and so much cooler than flashing too much goosebumped flesh when it’s freezing out!

For a similar look to Fearne’s, why not try the Jonathan Aston Sweet Rose Lace Tights from MyTights.com?

They have a sweet flower pattern all the way up the leg, as well as a saucy back seam for that 1940s pin-up-style effect.

See Fearne here and check out our full range of lace tights on our website too.

White dress with opaque tights works well at soap awards

It’s one of the biggest evenings of the year for Britain’s soap stars and the actresses from Corrie, EastEnders and the like no doubt took forever to get ready for the Inside Soap Awards last night.

So it was probably a little disappointing for Charlie Brooks, Effie Woods and Camilla Dallerup, who all went for virtually the same outfit of a white mini dress with black opaque tights.

Granted, it was better than the traditional flesh-baring, split to the thigh numbers usually seen at such events and the hosiery actually made the three girls look really quirky.

Let’s hope they treated it as a case of great minds thinking alike instead of creating some EastEnders-worthy drama on the red carpet!

It was a good night for Lacey Turner – Stacey Slater – who bagged the best actress award for the fourth year running. EastEnders scooped a total of seven gongs, leaving Corrie trailing with only five.

We liked Camilla’s dress best thanks to its added frills and 1920s style (pictured). You’ll need some good quality opaques underneath this kind of frock, so why not opt for some from Pretty Polly via Mytights.com?

Over knee socks ‘are killer this autumn’

Anyone who has tried out all the trends in opaque tights, fishnets and sheer tights may wish to turn their attention towards over knee socks.

Daily Mail columnist Liz Jones has tipped them as being a key part of the autumn capsule wardrobe this year, along with warm coats, wraps and cashmere jumpers.

She also pointed out that they will delay you putting away your fave shoes in favour of warmer boots.

"Over the knee socks worn with summer sandals? Killer," Liz enthused.

You don’t have to splash out to get the look either – we love Pamela Mann’s Over Knee socks from Mytights.com, which cost just £5.35. At this price, you could buy a few pairs to wear under your trousers when it gets really cold, as well as for under your best going-out dresses!

Fearne Cotton recently revealed that she is a big fan of socks, the Metro reported. She has indeed been spotted in a number of pairs recently, including ankle socks which she wore with wedge sandals.

Those aren’t the knee high socks we meant, Ulrika…

If you’re a regular reader of this blog, you’ll know we have been championing knee high socks of late.

However, we meant that you should be investing in some of the trendy girly styles available at the moment, not raiding your bloke’s drawers to nick his.

Which is exactly what Ulrika Jonsson seems to have done, if pictures in the Sun this week are anything to go by.

The 42-year-old, who recently had cosmetic surgery to remove some of her body hang-ups, was spotted out shopping wearing a long black cardigan and leggings, a blue top – and what looked suspiciously like a pair of men’s blue football socks.

She looked slightly odd, to say the least – the effect was as though her bottom half had escaped and been to the gym all on its own.

And it’s a shame, because her outfit would have gone perfectly with some of the fashionable knee highs that are available from MyTights.com at the moment.

We love the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee Highs, which come in an array of shades and which would add a great splash of colour to a monochrome look.

Stockings scene ‘too sexy for Corrie’

Corrie is about to get steamy tonight – but bosses decided that the scene was so sexy that it could not be broadcast on ITV.

Resident minx Rosie Webster – played by Helen Flanagan – is set to try and seduce factory boss Luke Strong by posing outside his balcony in a basque, stockings and suspenders underneath a trenchcoat.

However, TV viewers will only see her begin to remove her coat before the scene is cut – the more saucy footage will be screened on the ITV website once the programme ends.

Commenting on the scenes, Helen said: "Rosie is outrageous and such a madam and I love playing her."

Stockings are undoubtedly sexy and are perfect for giving you confidence, even if no-one else is going to see them.

Slip on a pair like Gerbe’s Silk Stockings from MyTights.com and you’re guaranteed to feel like a modern-day Greta Garbo!

Black opaque tights ‘will give you a stylish monochrome look’

Anyone who is unsure about how to create a stylish look this autumn should opt for monochrome if they want a foolproof, classic outfit.

This is the suggestion of style bible Grazia, which pointed out that pairing a simple black top with a black and white patterned skirt and black opaque tights will provide an easy way to dress for a smart occasion, be it work or a lunch date.

"If there was ever a sure-fire way to get your chic on, it would be to doll yourself up in black and white," the magazine insists.

We agree – you can’t go wrong with monochrome, and black opaque tights complement the style much better than bare legs would (plus they won’t leave you shivering as the temperature drops!).

Try Pretty Polly’s Soft Opaque Tights from MyTights.com, which are amazingly comfy but also look great.

You could also check out our full range of opaque tights, which come in an array of weights and finishes.

Holly Willoughby: My Spanx give me the Xtra Factor!

While some of the fashion mags would have us believe that you have to be size zero to get ahead, we now all know that’s not true thanks to a very glamorous girlie named Holly Willoughby.

A self-confessed curvy miss, she never tries to hide her best assets and her career is still going from strength to strength – she scooped the coveted This Morning presenting slot this month and also still does The Xtra Factor.

However, she has revealed in an interview with the Daily Mail that she has some secret self-confidence support under those sexy dresses – her Spanx.

"I’m a big fan of Spanx and even wore the special pregnancy variety when I was expecting my son Harry," she confided.

Although she acknowledged that they won’t make you thinner, Holly pointed out that they will make you more streamlined and will get rid of bulges under anything figure-hugging.

That sounds like a great endorsement to us! You’ll find the Spanx Power Mama panties on our website, where you can also see our full range of other Spanx designs.
