Harpers Bazaar LOVE MyTights!

 harper-bazaar-jon-aston-coverSomehow, we’re nearing the end of July already. How did that happen?! Sadness erupts when we think how fast summer is flying by, however Harper’s Bazaar reminded us that autumn is full of fabulous fashion, not least with all the hosiery we can wear to protect our legs from the plummeting weather. The UK version of the famous fashion magazine’s August 2015 issue is ahead of the curve with cool blues and the Jonathon Aston 40D Opaque Tights provided to them by none other than MyTights.com

Available in an array of shades, these 40 denier tights are the perfect way to add some colour to an otherwise simple outfit. Minimalist fashion is trending, which could explain all the monochromatic ensembles that we’re seeing of late. Great with plain black, white or grey dresses, coloured tights are so chic because they embody simplicity and clean lines to create a look that wouldn’t look out of place in the glamorous 60’s era.

Pamela Mann hosiery is featured in the editorial as well. The model sports deep teal opaque tights, with bright purple pumps. If you love this style as much as we do, we suggest Pamela Mann 80 Denier Tights in Dark Teal to replicate it!

Oh Kimye! Here’s where you went wrong…

kim-k-hold-ups-2Now we don’t know about you, but when it comes to being styled, Kanye West wouldn’t be anywhere near the top of our list. Like we needed any proof that letting your husband style you was a bad idea, Kimye this week took  it to a whole new level with their recently published photo portfolio titled Kanye, Juergen and Kim. It is reported that the Yeezus singer styled his wife for the (quite frankly bonkers) outdoor shoot – where Kim wears a nude bodysuit with black hold ups and extra tall black stilettos, sprawled over what appears to be a giant heep of dirt. Right…. Now, while we aren’t expecting anyone to run to the shops to mirror her look, Kanye might have been onto something with certain elements of her look.

 

 

Starting with her black hold ups (something we very much approve of), achieve a similar look to Kim with the Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Denier Hold Ups. These hold ups benefit from a chic 15 denier base, reinforced toe and give you a chic look, minus the  construction machinery, open fields, and a pile of dirt!bas-chic-hold-up spanx-tank-fullslip-main

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next is the nude bodysuit. Now we don’t want you walking out of the house with just the bodysuit on – maybe someone should have told Kanye that shapewear goes under our clothes! But as well as giving you fabulous shaping control, shaping suits can look chic when layered with pencil skirts and dresses. Go for the Spanx Trust Your Thinstincts Tank Full Slip in Nude to nail the look.

Now it is time to fill in the missing pieces! Pair the bodysuit with a form fitting black pencil skirt and high heeled boots. Trade the star’s metallic gold brazier for a different accent item such as a gold clutch or necklace.

Now THAT’S where you went wrong, Kanye!

Hosiery Capsule: The Office Edition

Dressing for the office is amongst the trickiest sartorial tasks you’ll ever have to face. While some workplaces insist on professional attire with longer hemlines and tailoring, others are much more relaxed and opt for a more smart casual vibe. Which begs the question:  what makes for the perfect office look? We’ve found the answer to the age old conundrum, and it likes in none other than hosiery. As sad as it may be, surveys have suggested that 70% of people believe how you dress in the workplace affects your career prospects, which is why we’ve rounded up a collection of office hosiery must haves. From the obligatory sheers through to confidence boosting shapewear, MyTights.com have your office wear covered.

1. Nude hosiery: perfect for the summer

No matter how warm the weather becomes, we recommend opting for a sheer tight to perfect your professional look. It is vital for to invest in a variety of nude sheers – an everyday staple for the working woman. We suggest a range between 5 and 15 denier, which covers you for both summer scorchers and chillier spring days.

2. Black Hosiery Staples

Everyone woman needs at least two pairs of black hosiery in their office collection. We recommend that one of your two should be opaque and the other sheer, to account for all weather conditions (as we know what the British weather is like!)  This is an absolute must- no ifs, ands, or buts about it!

6. Mixing it up: Prints

Last but not least, dressing the office doesn’t have to be all about sheers and opaques. Patterned tights are a great way of injecting some personality into your look and making you stand out from the crowd. The trick is to opt for muted prints, such as classic polkadots so as to remain professional. It’s also a fab way of making your outfit a little dressier should yuo be invited for impromptu after work drinks.

Throwback Thursday to the 1960s!

TwiggyThis week our Throwback Thursday is dedicated to the fashion icon that is Twiggy! The 60’s was all about expressing yourself in terms of fashion, and this extended to your legwear. It was out with the dated knee length numbers and in with miniskirts, vibrant colours and testing the boundaries of style. Twiggy was renowned for her colourful tights and wearing extravagant patterns, and with 60’s style coming back in an abundance this season, we thought we’d round up our favourite coloured tights for you to nail the trend, and show you just how easy they are to wear. While a more conservative colour palette may be best for the office, after hours is your time to embrace a more playful persona. From weekend lunches to nights out with the girls, here’s our one stop guide to getting coloured tights right!

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 2.30.47 PMColoured tights can be worn in a number of ways depending on your style preference. If you prefer a more uniformed look, Twiggy was known to pair her tights with a matching colour ensemble. But to stand out from the crowd, she also loved to wear coloured tights with a contrasting colour for a real statement look. Here are our top 5 coloured picks: Pamela Mann Opaques in (1) Flo Orange (2)Flo Yellow and (3)Flo Green (4)Velvet Green Jonathon Aston Opaques and (5) Berry Jonathon Aston Sheers!

Looks We Love: Cool, White Summer

cool-summerAt MyTights, we’ve always got one eye on the catwalks to see what’s trending in the world of hosiery. One show that particularly caught our eye this season was Giambattista Valli’s Spring/Summer 2015 collection. The epitome of cool and elegance, the show oozed sophistication and featured an abundance of summer hosiery in neutral shades of white, ivory and cream. Perfect for wearing at this time of year, especially with the mini-heatwave we’ve been experiencing of late (let’s hope it lasts!), we thought it would be a great idea to pull together our favourite white hosiery, and show you how you can style this often difficult colour.

To nail this style it’s all about choosing colours within similar realms. What makes it so elegant is its simplicity, so it gives you a great chance to experiment with different textures, fabrics, and patterns.

If you normally wouldn’t wear lace tights, trying out the Jonathon Aston Sweet Roses Tights in Ivory is a must. Beautifully crafted using a cut and sew technique, these

tights are perfect for pulling off your summer looks. Finish off the ensemble with cute summer dresses in lighter fabrics, mixing in some fringe detailing and lace for extra style points.

Another great pick from Jonathon Aston are the Sheer Coloured Tights, available in 19 colours including chic white. A solid white sheer is great for wearing with just about anything, and don’t be afraid to experiment with fun textures such as feathers or sequins. We’ve covered lace and plainer styles, now it’s time to discuss printed tights! Anyone with any fashion know-how will know that spots are everywhere this season Subtle, versatile and bang on trend, pull off the look with the Wolford Nola Tights, which feature an exquisite side seam made up of individual polkadots.

MyTights have your summer hosiery covered, but if you crave even more inspiration, be sure to also check out our Cool Summer Mood Board on Pinterest!

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

 While the weather might be feeling a little Jekyll and Hyde of late, with next week comes the beginning of June, which means one thing – its summer! Finally, it’s time to relegate your opaques to the back of the drawer, stock up on the suncream and bask in the rays of summer heatwaves (we hope!)

Whether for sun-soaked holidays, garden parties or the obligatory Saturday afternoon BBQ, MyTights are on hand to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch!

Often considered to be the epitome of a summer style, floral prints are as big as ever this season, but MyTights being MyTights, we have everything you could possibly need. For a classic floral print, check out the Oroblu Elaine Tights, with a lace-like floral effect running across a tulle base. Or for something a little more quirky, you’ll adore the Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights, with a striking side seam made up of brightly coloured floral motifs.

Nude Fishnets

Where: Nights out, the office

Listen up: no summer wardrobe is complete without pair of nude fishnet tights! Whether worn with sweet summer dresses or even in the workplace, nude fishnets are perfect for adding some interest to an otherwise bland outfit and keeping you feeling refreshed. The Levante Fishnet Tights in Naturel are perfect, opting for the Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights if you prefer a smaller net.

Staple: Pastels

What would summer be without pastel hues? From chic lemon through to pretty pink, pastel colours are everywhere this season, so it makes sense to stock up. For a plethora of pastel hues, check out the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights, or the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks.

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

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!
