Have you started buying your Autumn/Winter wardrobe yet? Need some advice on what the trends are and how to wear them? Not sure how to wear your hosiery? Here at MyTights we want to make it easier for you to keep on trend with your hosiery, so for the next few days we’ll be walking you through the key A/W trends: Dressing-Up Box, Minimalist, The Great Outdoors, Mad Men Women, Animal Magnetism, Fur, Man Shoes and Camel.
September arrives and the stores become a blur of browns, grey and black but this year designers shocked us with dazzling bold and bright colours. This trend has been dubbed as ‘Dressing-Up Box’ – it’s all about chaotically layering, creativity and flamboyancy. Jean Paul Gaultier, Rodarte and Vivienne Westwood’s Red Label are great examples. They used oranges, pinks and reds and preferred thin ankle cotton socks – in most instances they doubled them up or chose a combination of socks and ribbed tights – all with strappy heels. This is a hard trend to work, but you can achieve it with carefully picked pieces and simple layering with thin fabrics. Adding coloured tights will instantly add life to your outfit and make it uber-chic. For inspiration check Jonathan Aston or Pamela Mann opaque coloured tights.
This style was championed by Celine, Stella McCartney, Giambattista Villi, and Bottega Veneta. Minimalist is easy to replicate, you just need to select pieces that are austere in design and say ‘elegant chic.’ This is the polar opposite of ‘Dressing-Up Box,’ it’s understated but luxurious. Designers showcased strict cuts and minimal accessories. So where does hosiery come in? Max Aria had various shades of grey opaque tights to accompany his designs. Celine opted for simple but elegant black semi-opaque tights with a crisp white shirt and brown A-line skirt. Add femininity to your minimalist outfit by wearing pointed court shoes with a slight heel. Stella McCartney decided nude was best, we recommend investing in some good quality bare leg look tights by Falke or Pretty Polly.
