Celebrities LOVE hosiery: Get The Look!

Just like waiting for a bus, we’ve been waiting days to spot another fabulous celebrity hosiery look, and then three come along at once! From other sides of the globe and all choosing to wear hosiery in their own individual way, we bring you a round-up of celebrity looks, and how YOU can recreate them at the drop of a hat.

Iggy Azalea

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Beginning with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, the 24 year old isn’t always known for her fashion choices, but that all changed this week when we laid eyes on these images, shot for a 100th birthday special of iconic underwear label Bonds. While we may not opt for an outfit quite so risqué, we fell hook, line and sinker for her grey over the knee socks. Boasting a classic ribbed design and with extra-wide black tops for a chic contrast, we think they look great with her heeled biker boots. What do you think? If you love her look as much as us, treat yourself to the Oroblu Lysette Over Knees, with the same ribbed finish and wide band. Or if you want to copy her look down to the colour, check out the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto!

 

Charlotte Crosby

Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings

From an internationally acclaimed rapper to everyones favourite George Shore hellraiser, we spotted Celebrity Big Brother winner Charlotte Crosby on the streets of London in a funky pair of patterned leggings. We love fashion leggings at MyTights – there really is nothing better for brightening up your basic pieces. Charlotte clearly agrees, teaming her marvel inspired leggings with an oversized jumper and white trainers. To get your hands on a similarly fun look, check out the Pamela Mann Fleur de Lis Leggings, covered in the fleur de lis prints for a regal feel. Or take things back to your childhood with the Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings, covered in an assortment of retro sweets that you can enjoy without having to worry about your figure.

 

Tallulah Willis

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Last but not least, we simply had to comment on this adorable look from Tallulah Willis. Having been raised by Demi Moore, the 21 year old was always going to know a thing or two about looking good, and this ensemble more than caught our eye. Bridging the gap between a dressed down vibe and statement appeal, she tucked a denim shirt with a suede skater skirt, finishing the look with sheer black tights and sparkly ankle socks. A stellar performance if we say so herself, recreate the look with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights and the Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks, a combination that’s bound to make you a style star. Or if ankle socks aren’t for you, layer the Pretty Polly Sparkle Rib Over The Knee Socks over your sheers for a similar shimmer.

 

We can’t keep up – it’s a hosiery takeover. Keep checking back for more celebrity looks soon!

Festival Fashion: Our Top Picks

Ankle Socks

Ankle Socks

Boho bangles and flower crowns… it could only mean one thing… it’s festival season! We all know if there’s ever a time to overload on accessories, it’s now. In fact, to really capture the bohemian festival look, accessories are a must, and what better way than with hosiery?

Should the sun have his hat on, we definitely know that less is more. For this reason, ankle socks can add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit and nail the ever popular layered look. Try a classic solid pair of Trasparenze Marta 70D Ankle Highs to peak out the tops of your ballet pumps and combat boots. Matched with a patterned pair of high-waisted shorts, you’ll stay cool and refreshed and look gorgeous to boot. We especially love the brighter shades for getting us in the festival spirit.

Kendal Jenner shows us that festivals are all about

 being bold with patterns. Though we’re aware that most of us can’t pull off high-waisted flares, we do know how to pull off prints. The Oroblu Butterfly Leggings for instance offer a mix of blue and cream colours with butterfly motifs. Making a statement while listening to your favourite bands – sounds like a pretty good day to us!

 

Two piece outfits have been all the rage of late and lucky for us, they’re perfect festival attire. To dress this look up the MyTights way, pair with cosy over the knee socks and slip on plimsoles. The Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks come in a wide range of colours to complement your co-ord to perfection.

Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups

Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups

The most important ingredient to a festival you ask? That’s right, glitter. Whether you sparkle with rhinestone jewels or get painted in gold henna, glitter is a must. To add more to your outfit, check out our glitter and shine range. Try the semi opaque Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups for a hint of metallic glow that lines the back of each leg in floral print. Teamed with decorative body paint, there’ll be no stopping you from strealing the festival fashion crown.

You might be sleeping in a tent and odds are you haven’t showered for three days, but hosiery is always on hand to keep you looking fabulous!

Have a fantastic time, ladies.

Who wore it best: Black Opaques…

One’s an-all singing, all-dancing star of Glee and the other will forever be known as Rachel from Friends, but Dianna Agron and Jennifer Aniston seem to have one thing in common – their love of opaque tights! While summer did make a brief appearance in the last couple of weeks, we’re currently in the midst of a rainy midweek, meaning you have unfinished business with those trusty opaques. Having both been papped in the wardrobe staple this week, we took it upon ourselves to test their style credentials and put them head to head in the ultimate battle. Black opaque tights – who wore them best?

Dianna Agron

Dianna Agron

 

Beginning with the lovely Dianna, most well known for her role as Quinn from Glee, she’s now trying her hand on stage, and has recently landed a top role in London’s famed West End, Good for you! Promoting her new role in a play about late fashion designer Alexander McQueen, Agron appeared on The Paul O’ Grady Show in a fabulous ensemble. Layering a high neck black sweater and thick black opaques beneath a sparkly skater dress, she completed her preppy look with a pair of black Chelsea boots. Oh, how we adore this look! It’s cute, it’s stylish and it shows us all how versatile black opaques can be, it’s going to take some beating. Over to you Rachel…we mean Jennifer!

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston

 

 Sporting an off-duty look after watching a Broadway show, the Friends star was another opting to wrap up warm. Wearing a roll neck jumper dress with knee high boots and her favourite black opaques, we think Jen looked great. We do however think that Dianna’s look had that little extra oomph, so this round goes to Agron!

Feeling inspired? Check out our whole range of black opaques before you head off! Or if you prefer something a little more lightweight for this time of year, peruse our semi-opaque range, too!

Chic and figure-hugging – it can only be Wolford bodies!

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian

We all know and love Wolford’s large selection of hosiery, but did you know they also make the most fabulous bodies? In fact, a host of celebrities have been popping up all over sporting the styles, and it’s easy to see why. With the weather warming up, these products are perfect for creating a simple and polished look, whether layering beneath close fitting outfits or as an outfit accessory in their own right. Although these bodies don’t come cheap, we’re of the opinion that they’re worth every penny. A timeless (not to mention versatile) addition to your wardrobe, they’ll stand the test of time and are unmistakably Wolford.

Daisy Lowe

Daisy Lowe

Kim Kardashian has always been a fan of figure hugging fashion, so it came as no surprise to us to see her in the Wolford Colorado String Body. Not only comfortable but versatile too, you can dress this up with a pencil skirt and heels or dress it down with jeans and a leather jacket depending on the event. The lack of seams also ensures a wonderfully smooth silhouette, just like Kim K herself.

Another celebrity trying out the trend is supermodel Daisy Lowe, who layered a simple black body beneath an eye catching sheer lace skirt. In our eyes, you can never go wrong with an all-black ensemble, so recreating this look is a must. Luckily, we have just the thing with the Wolford Berlin Body, finishing off the look with the Wolford Velvet De Luxe 50 Tights.

Miley CyrusNot always known for her chic sartorial choices, Miley Cyrus has also been known to sport a Wolford body. Albeit on a photoshoot, the Wrecking Ball singer styled the Wolford Jamaika String Body with some patchwork denim and heels for a casual yet trendy look. Okay, so we might not wear the jeans ourselves, but the body is seriously stylish. For us, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black high waisted denim shorts and heeled boots.

 Intrigued? Check out our entire selection of Wolford bodies before you leave!

Katy Perry has never been one to shy away from the fashion limelight, has she? In fact, her tour outfits are amongst the most risqué we’ve ever seen, but we can’t help but love her. Currently residing in Japan as part of her Prismatic World Tour, it seems that Katy has immersed herself fully in Japanese culture, stepping out in this Harajuku Girl inspired outfit. Pairing a white blouse with a pleated skater skirt and with her hair teased into tight plaits, her sweet look was brought together with a pair of crisp white ankle socks with stripe detail.

Wolford Leonie Socks

In typical Wolford style, these 15 denier socks upgrade traditional dots with an array of larger than life polkadots.

Scarlett in sheers!

Scarlett in sheers!

Sartorially speaking, Hollywood actress Scarlett Johansson barely puts a foot wrong. Whether showcasing her envious figure on the red carpet or strolling through Tinseltown, she just has a knack of always getting it right. So we were less than surprised this week when she was pictured arriving at the Jimmy Kimmel Studios in Hollywood looking suitably glam. Can you believe she gave birth just SIX months ago?! Wearing a figure hugging sleeveless top with a plaid skirt with leather waistband, the star completed her flattering look in a pair of gorgeous sheer tights. Okay, so Scarlett herself might be in America, but with the glorious weather we’ve been enjoying of late, Scarlett’s got us thinking.

Try Out Stockings à la Madonna & Taylor Swift!

Madonna & Taylor in their fab stockings!

Madonna & Taylor in their fab stockings!

 

Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

We love nothing more than when two of our favourite music stars join forces; it always makes for a brilliant pop song. Eminem and Rihanna, Nelly & Kelly, the list goes on. Now it’s the turn of none other than Madonna and Taylor Swift to set the airwaves alight and produce a new song that we’ll undoubtedly have in our heads for months to come. Performing their much anticipated single Ghost Town at the iHeartMusic Radio Awards, it seems that it’s not just musical talent that the pair have in common, with both the undisputed queen of pop and current golden girl Swift performing in matching stockings!

In her first public performance since THAT fall at the Brit Awards and opting to play it safe and sit on a stool (wise move!), Madonna layered her black stockings over a pair of trademark fishnets, finishing off her vampy look with knee high leather boots and a rather odd corseted outfit. Taylor’s outfit, on the other hand, was a slightly more classic affair, wearing her lovely lace top stockings with a sleeveless black dress and knee high lace up boots. Two very different looks with one thing in common, the performance confirmed exactly what we knew – stockings are back. Are you loving their legwear? If you are, MyTights.com have a fantastic array of stockings on offer, be it winter-warming opaques or racy fishnets, so there’s no reason why you can’t replicate it should you wish…

If it’s a classic pair of sheer stockings a la Taylor you’re after, a great place to start is with the Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings. Near on identical to Swifty, the lace top adds instant glamour to your wardrobe, while the slight sheen finish is great for perfecting a polished evening look. Whether you follow Taylor’s lead and opt for an LBD or play it casual in a pair of denim shorts and statement tee, these are a fabulous (not to mention affordable) choice. Looking for something that’s a little more everyday? No problem, simply turn your attention to the brilliant Charnos Elegance Ultra Sheer Stockings, a case of the name speaking for itself, with their classic plain top and understated sheen. Great for the office, they’ll only set you back £6.25 a pair.

While we’d suggest accessorising your stockings with something a little more demure than Madonna herself, there’s no denying that her layered fishnet tights added some wow factor to her look. To mirror this, how about treating yourself to the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Stockings? All the sultry appeal of stockings but with a classic fishnet base to get everyone talking, there’s no easier way to give your simple evening wear an edgy twist!

Fallen hook, line and sinker for sultry stockings? Make sure you cast your eyes over our full range!
