Retro Perfection: Emma Roberts in Knee Highs

Emma Roberts rocking 70's chic!

Emma Roberts rocking 70′s chic!

Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs

Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs

Being the niece of Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts was always destined for big things. Emerging in recent years as one of the brightest young stars in Hollywood, it appears like the 24 year old actress knows a thing or two about style, too. Being papped this week on set of her new television series Scream Queens, Emma looked fabulous in a retro inspired outfit, comprising a faux fur jacket, white blouse, dogtooth skirt and gorgeous blush pink knee high socks. Sure, she has the wardrobe department to thank for her old school look, but Roberts pulled it off with panache.

Now, of course most of our attention focused on her socks, and what a pair they are! Finishing just below the knee and coming with a fashion-forward ribbed design, they added a sweet, flirty appeal to her look and made her look as if she was straight out of the 1970’s (and we mean that in a good way!)

What do you think about her socks? If you like them as much as us, the good news is that it couldn’t be easier to follow in Emma’s star studded footsteps. Here’s how you can recreate her look…

1) Perhaps the closest way to rival Emma’s look would be with the Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs. Also coming with a chic ribbed design, these opaque socks come in both black and a deep burgundy shade, proving the perfect accessory to retro swing dresses and 70’s patterns. Emma Roberts who?!

2) If the blush pink shade of Emma’s socks appealed to you, opt for the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks in Rosa. A gorgeous soft pink colour, these 70 denier socks are actually available in 18 additional colours. Something to match every look, stocking up on these wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world…

Charnos Chevron & Diamond Knee Highs

3) Retro fashion is all about jazzy patterns, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with the Charnos Chevron & Diamond Knee Highs (2pp). Two pairs of sheer knee high socks, with one boasting a 70’s-esque chevron design and the other a stylish diamond; the hardest part will be choosing which pair to wear!

4) Take a walk on the wild side in the gorgeous Pretty Polly Animal & Stripe Knee Highs. What you’ll get here is one pair of sheer knee highs in a classic stripe and the other boasting a retro animal print. Great with flirty hemlines!

We look forward to the series if this style is anything to go by!

Workwear Style: Get It Right

Aristoc 80D Opaque Tights in black

Aristoc 80D Opaque Tights in black

Here at MyTights.com, we consider ourselves to be a fairly fashion-forward bunch. Always keeping one eye on the catwalks, we make an effort to stay on trend, and this extends to our office wear too. Or so we thought, anyway…

A recent study by recruitment giants Reed quizzed 1,500 UK employees about fashion in the workplace, and it highlighted that perhaps the UK workforce aren’t quite as fashion-conscious as they’d like to believe. While 93% of us believed that the way we dressed could have a positive impact on our careers (we agree), it seems that not all of us adhere to the so-called workplace fashion etiquette.

Unsurprisingly, the most popular fashion faux pas in the office related to uncleanliness, with unwashed and unironed clothes at the top of the bill. Yuck! We know – you live busy lives and there’s not always time in the morning to create an A-list look, but it wouldn’t hurt to run an iron over your dress from time to time!

Something that did surprise us however is that a ‘fashion-ceiling’ exists. What’s this, you may ask? Apparently, we all come to a point in our careers where the way we look no longer has an impact on our success in the workplace. The idea behind this is that once we’ve climbed the career ladder and hold a managerial position; the way we present ourselves shouldn’t matter, driven by examples such as Mark Zuckerberg, the CEO of Facebook who’s never seen without a pair of baggy jeans and a hoody. Hmm! We may be biased, running a fashion company and all, but we hold the opinion that presenting yourself positively can never be a bad thing… why wouldn’t you want to look your best?With this in mind, and with one third of us admitting that we don’t plan our workplace outfits at all, we thought it would be a good idea to make nailing an

2) Levante 50D Suede Matte Opaque Tights – if you’re after something a little lighter, these 50 denier tights may be just the ticket. Soft against the skin and durable enough to stand the test of time, these are the perfect everyday tight, and what’s more, come in three office-appropriate colours!

3) Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights – we spend most of our lives in the office, so wouldn’t it be great if your workplace wardrobe could help shape your silhouette, too?

The Best On The Market: Semi-opaque Tights

vivetta_sheer

Black sheers treading the runway at Milan.

We’ve entered that tricky time of the year where we’re stuck in the middle between two seasons. No longer are we spending each and every morning slipping into our winter thermals, but we’re not quite ready to safely pack away our opaques for another year – it can be a real conundrum to know what to wear! The answer to your legwear woes lies in semi opaque tights, which are a fantastic choice for getting you through the next couple of months until you can embrace your sheers, or if we’re really lucky… bare legs! With a denier weight of between 30 and 40 denier, semi-opaque tights allow you to show off a little bit more skin than with opaques, but with greater protection and durability as experienced with sheer tights. The perfect compromise.

It’s not all about functionality, however. Semi-opaque tights are a fashion-forward option in their own right. Don’t believe us? Just ask the countless runway shows at the recent fashion weeks that featured semi-opaque styles. One such show was Italian designer Vivetta, showcasing sheer black tights alongside a knee length purple dress with racy side split and matching boots. If you’re itching to copy the look and get your hands on some similar tights, MyTights.com stock a huge selection of semi-opaque tights, with something for every event, style and price point…

Oroblu Sensuel 30 Tights

Oroblu Sensuel 30 Tights

1) The everyday semi-opaque – if you’re looking for a quality pair of tights for everyday use, it simply has to be the Oroblu Sensuel 30 Tights. Great for covering up skin blemishes and coming in 7 stylish shades, these 30 denier tights are ideal for taking you from the workplace to the champagne bar. Virtually indestructible!

2) Colour, colour, colour! – if it’s colour you’re after, look no further than the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights. Towards the higher end of the semi-opaque scale, these 40 denier tights come in no less than 17 shades, ranging from more conservative shades of black and navy blue through to the vibrant daffodil yellow and velvet green. Something for everyone.

3) Treat yourself to some luxury – for pure quality, the Wolford Neon 40 Tights come out on top every time. Ideal for giving your legs a healthy glow with their shiny finish, these 40 denier tights have the appearance of 20 denier but with the durability of a semi-opaque, so you’ll look as if you’ve opted for a sheer tight, without the chilly legs!

Pretty Polly Backseam Opaques with Bow

4) Shaping magic – make the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights part of your everyday essentials. Quality semi-opaque tights but with hidden shaping magic in the control panel, they’ll smooth over your lumps and bumps and leave you feeling utterly content.

5) Fantastic fashion – to add a vintage feel to your look, up your style credentials in the Pretty Polly Backseam Opaques with Bow. All the qualities of a semi-opaque but with a retro backseam and super pretty bow at the mid-calf.

Spring style saviours!

Milan Fashion Week: From Classics To Eye-Catching Patterns

Anyone with a penchant for fashion will know that this time of year means one thing… the fashion weeks! The MyTights team has had their eagle eyes on any legwear making the cut on the catwalk – here’s our round up of Milan!

Fishnets

Funky fishnets made a big appearance at the Giamba show this week, and we’re loving it! Floral dresses, fishnets, and tall black boots took over the show. This look may be a bit much for your day to day wardrobe, but fishnets are a fun way to spice up any outfit. We have an abundance of fishnets to add to your hosiery drawer this season, from tights to stockings to ankle socks. And if you’re feeling extra daring, you can layer a pair of our fishnets over a pair of coloured or printed tights.

Levante Fishnet Tights

To nail the look, head to Italian brand Levante and the Levante Fishnet Tights, with their classic net design and choice of two colours. Want to add a splash of colour into your look? Customise by layering over a pair of Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights for a quirky twist.

Sheer

Sheer tights have always been a classic staple in every woman’s closet, and Milan Fashion Week was no exception. We loved the way Vivetta paired simple sheer black tights with a bright coloured dress and booties. Our wide variety of sheer tights makes it easy to make this look your own. For a classic pair, opt for the Pretty Polly Nylon Tights, with their chic 10 denier weight and gorgeous glossy finish.

 Mario Dice showed us a fabulous twist on the classic skin coloured tights, injecting some personality into the look with an edgy geometric pattern. Paired with a black leather romper and bright red statement jacket, the designer opted for the Wolford Stella tights. Love these? Good news- we have the exact tights!

Footless Tights

The Missoni show was filled with footless tights in all colours and patterns, paired with dresses and ankle strap heels. Footless tights are great for both casual daywear and dressing up for nights out. With the warmer weather approaching, footless tights are a perfect pair with sandals or heels. Our Pamela Mann 3d Footless Tights come in 17 different colours, ideal for any occasion!

 Patterns

Au Jour Le Jour went for extremely bold looks this week with patterned tights for every look. Pushing the limits with patterns and colours, these tights really made a statement. Okay, so we know these looks are a little wild and unrealistic, but that doesn’t mean you can’t incorporate some colour into your daily wardrobe.  Pamela Mann gives us a fun, easily wearable take on this colourful look with the Pamela Mann Baroque Tulle Tights, complete with a regal baroque pattern and a choice of three stylish shades. Don’t be afraid of a little pattern!

Laura’s Choice: Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mums – where would we be without them? No matter what we’ve put them through over the years, they’ve always been there. Be it toddler tantrums, our first day at school, picking us up from parties when we’ve had one too many or simply being on hand to offer us a shoulder to cry on, we really have put them through the mill. While we should show them just how much they mean to us on a daily basis, Mother’s Day is that one day a year when they deserve the extra special treatment. But this year, instead of opting for the traditional (and slightly boring) combination of flowers and chocolate, how about treating them to some gorgeous new hosiery? Something they’ll appreciate for seasons to come, we think it makes for the perfect gift. Not sure where to start? The MyTights team have been busily compiling our list of brilliant Mother’s Day presents to suit every need. Just call us your very own gift gurus…

Brrrrrilliant winter warmers

Falke Warm Deluxe Tights

Falke Warm Deluxe Tights

The calendar might state its March, but it sure doesn’t feel like it! While January and February are out of the way, the winter weather is still rearing its ugly head, with forecasters predicting temperatures this month will be well below the average. So why not give your lovely mum’s some snug hosiery to keep them going until spring FINALLY breaks through? The best on the market are without doubt the Falke Warm Deluxe Tights. We were excited about these as soon as we heard through the grapevine that they were being developed last year, and they did anything but disappoint. Taking advantage of the latest soft plush techniques, these 80 denier tights are designed to conserve every last bit of heat… it’s fair to say I was hooked as soon as I pulled them on! Great for giving your legs instant warming relief on those chilly mornings, they also come in 7 colours if your mum fancies herself as a bit of a fashionista.

If you like the idea of treating her to some cosiness but your budget doesn’t quite stretch to these, a fantastic alternative are the Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Opaque Thermal Tights. Mega thick opaque tights with a top secret brushed fleece lining, the best thing about these is that they’re packed full of thermal qualities while appearing just a standard pair of thick opaques. And at just £9.95 a pair, you’ll have some spare pennies to treat her to a Mother’s Day meal! Control top tights are an excellent way to get your mum feeling her best and give her an extra dose of body confidence. Part of the bestselling Bodytoners range, the Aristoc Bodytoners Opaque Toner Tights appear just like a standard pair of 60 denier tights, albeit with a velvety soft finish that moisturises your legs during wear. Working on the most common problem zones, her social life is bound to go through the roof now she has these in her repertoire!

 

Super socks!

As the old saying goes, you can never have enough socks! In the past, it may have been the case that your mums might bemoan receiving a pair of socks as a gift… but she obviously hadn’t seen the selection at MyTights.com! Aside from their obvious practical uses, socks are the perfect way to add that last splash of style to your look. Brand new for SS15, the Trasparenze Fluture Socks are bound to be right up her street. Sheer ankle socks scattered with a dainty rose print, she’ll love how these transform her basic dresses and skirts, and even better, they won’t break your bank either.

Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks

Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks

If she’s never seen without a bit of sparkle, treat her to the Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks. Made in an attractive pellerine design and in two colours, these fashion socks have a chic metallic thread running throughout… much more than just a standard pair of socks! With spring on the horizon, it won’t be too long before your mum starts to give her ballet pumps and court shoes an outing, which is why the timing of the Trasparenze Spindasis Footlets couldn’t have been better. Another new addition, these foot liners have all the basic properties of a reliable footlet, the only difference being this particular pair have enough style to be an outfit accessory in their own right. How, you might ask? Well they happen to be made with a sumptuous floral net that will decorate your feet to perfection.

From the summery to the cosy, no list of Mother’s Day gifts would be complete without the Falke Cuddle Pads. Arriving on your doorstep in its attractive gift box, these slipper socks are as cuddly as the name would suggest, being made from a wool and cotton blend and coming with an anti-slip sole to make them wooden floor proof!

One eye on the summer?

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Okay, so it might be a little too cold at the moment to envisage packing away our opaques for another year, but there’s nothing wrong with looking ahead to the summer. Make sure your mum is fully prepared to nail a summery style with the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights. The closest thing to a bare leg look without bare legs themselves, Aristoc have utilised LYCRA® Fusion technology to ensure all the appeal of a natural look and the robustness of a thicker denier weight! In fact, these are so effective, you might just have a hard time convincing your friends that you’re wearing tights at all!

We often get requests around this time of year from women who are looking for tights that give their legs some coverage, but without the bulk or appearance of opaques. Ideal for covering up uneven skin tone or unsightly veins, the Wolford Neon 40 Tights are a real life hosiery hero. What’s special about these is that, despite their 40 denier construction, they actually have the appearance of 20 denier sheers. Providing your legs with a natural glow and covering up all your imperfections, they really do make for an amazing gift, regardless of whether you opt for classic black or one of the other 8 colours on offer.

Does your mum pride herself on her style choices? If the answer is yes, it goes without saying that she’ll want to keep up with the latest trends. You’d have to have been living under a rock to not have noticed the abundance of spots making their mark on the fashion world in recent months, so popular that they were the star of the show at Diane von Furstenberg’s latest New York Fashion Week collection. For a great pair, head to Pamela Mann and the Pamela Mann Sheer Dotty Tights, with their classic 20 denier leg and sweet spot print running throughout.

So, there we have it. Putting a smile on her face this year couldn’t be easier!

Until next time…

LONDON FASHION WEEK: THE HOSIERY HIGHLIGHTS!

If you’ve been wondering why you haven’t seen the fashion in-crowd much in the press of late, that’s because they’ve all been locked away in Somerset House, admiring the new designer collections for AW15! Don’t worry if you haven’t had time to catch up on the new styles emerging from London Fashion Week, the MyTights team are here to fill in all the blanks and round up our favourite hosiery looks for the upcoming season! And what a great week it was – we were thrilled to see just how much legwear made the cut. Here’s our round-up of the best styles that you’ll be wearing come the autumn…

 Spots

Spotty sheers at GILES

Oroblu Adelle Tights

Oroblu Adelle Tights

 

While there was an abundance of tights and socks on the catwalk, we’ve narrowed it down to four main trends which stood out, the first of which was spots! It doesn’t take a genius to work out that spots are set to be huge in the coming months, not only appearing at the Diane Von Furstenberg show at New York last week but also being a consistent part of Giles Deacon AW15 collection.

Every single one of his models paired their gothic ensembles with black spotty sheers, a look that we loved! While this monochrome ensemble may be a bit OTT for a trip to the shops, we’ll certainly be copying the tights. How? With the Oroblu Adelle Tights of course, which are identical to the tights worn by the GILES models.

For something a little different, head for the Wolford Poppy Tights – all the appeal of spots but with an asymmetrical design for a quirky twist.

 

Colour

Time to banish your black opaques to the back of the drawer, ladies! Colour is set to reign in AW15, appearing at the shows of Preen, Costelloe and Daks to name but a few. Our favourite look stemmed from Costelloe, in particularly the gorgeous berry opaques as seen on the right. Paired with a red velvet coat with a skater style bottom, the great thing about shades like this is that they’re not too loud, meaning they can be worn well…just about anywhere! Burgundys, forest greens and deep violets were the biggest trends we spotted, which is brilliant, as we have the perfect way to recreate the look with the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights! Available in no less than 20 colours, these 50 denier opaques are a) affordable, b) versatile and c) fabulously on-trend! If something a little more luxurious is up your street, another option are the Falke Pure Matt 100 Tights, which come in eight colours and benefit from a multitude of quality features, not to mention a super soft finish.

Socks

London Fashion Week was something of a sock frenzy – no arguments from us! From colourful ankle socks to black knee highs, socks featured just about everywhere, adding a cute and preppy touch to the looks and offering some warmth at the same time. For us, the best looks were seen at Jones and Daks, particularly the mustard yellow socks as seen on the left. Coming from much-loved designer duo Teatum Jones, the vibrant socks worked perfectly with the kooky patterned dress and fringed shoes. Okay, so we don’t think we’d opt for this much colour and pattern at once, but we’ll definitely be pulling out our colourful socks! Great with denim shorts and day dresses, you’ll be the height of fashion in the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks. Whether you opt for the Giallo shade a la Jones or any of the other 12 hues, these are the inexpensive way to nail the hot ankle socks trend.

Wet look

There’s nothing like a high shine finish to inject some rock chick glamour in to your look! Which was exactly the thoughts of Huisghan Zhang, it would seem, who included an array of gorgeous wet look tights into her designs. Keeping it classic in black, her models teamed their glossy legwear with printed dresses and heeled sandals for a look that was brimming with allure. We hear you, it might not be suitable for everyday life, but there’s nothing stopping you opting for some wet look hosiery for a glamorous evening look. To master the trend, the new Wolford Estella Leggings are perfect, even coming with a quirky seam at the knee for yet more fashion points. For something more budget-friendly, the Trasparenze Callophrys Leggings may be just the thing…

Get the Look: Beyonce in Leather Look Leggings!

Beyonce does biker chick!

Wolford Estella Leggings

Wolford Estella Leggings

International pop star, superstar husband, insanely talented. Is there anything that Beyonce can’t do?  It appears not, as this week she added yet another string to her already jam packed bow – style icon! Stepping out for a post-Grammys dinner with husband Jay Z and Ed Sheeran in a gorgeous pair of leather look leggings, Beyonce worked her curves to a tee, mastering the often difficult rock chick style. Teaming her biker leggings with a black leather jacket, statement tee and leather ankle boots (of course), the fabulous look has caused quite the stir in MyTights HQ – we just love her! If, like us, you’d love to be a little more like Beyonce herself, the good news is you can recreate her look with just a few simple clicks. Landing in our offices only last week (perfect timing), the Wolford Estella Leggings will give you the same statement look as the Queen Bee herself, with their high shine finish, skin-tight fit and quirky seam above the knee. You may not have her millions or bank, or maybe even her vocal range, but here’s how to get it right:

1) Experiment with patterns – while the leggings may make a statement in their own right, that doesn’t mean you can’t rock some colour and patterns on your top half. Beyonce’s statement tee was a great look – opt for stripes, aztec and spots to recreate,

2) The more leather the better – the key to nailing the rock chick look is to make leather your best friend; you can never have enough! Pull out your biker jacket and studded boots, ladies!

3) Jewellery is a must – the perfect accessory to leather, accessorise your look to perfection with chunky rings and a statement necklace.

She can do no wrong in our opinion! See our entire range of fashion leggings, here.

EXCLUSIVE: MyTights get a sneak peak of the Jonathan Aston 50th Anniversary collaborations with Zandra Rhodes and Celia Birtwell

 

This week, the MyTights team had the privilege of being invited to an exclusive launch of the 50th anniversary range from Jonathan Aston. Being one of our favourite hosiery brands, and promising sneak peeks of collaborations with coveted designers Dame Zandra Rhodes and Celia Birtwell, we were naturally very excited. And it certainly didn’t disappoint! Due to hit the shelves (and the MyTights website) in Autumn 2015, the ranges were packed full of the quirky twists that both Rhodes and Birtwell as designers are famed for.

Now, we don’t want to give too much away, but we can tell you to expect an abundance of signature style, with Zandra opting to incorporate her trademark safety pins, and even an appearance from Celia’s pet pooch (who has his own Twitter account, FYI) on a pair of socks. What really stood out about the ranges for us was that, although unique in their own way, both were subtle enough to adorn the legs of us normal folk on a day to day basis. Even better, they also come with an incredibly reasonable price tag, sitting around the £15-£20 mark.

After a few glasses of prosecco to combat our nerves, we even had the chance to meet both designers (who were lovely, I should add) and quiz them about where they drew the inspiration for their new ranges. Again, we’re not going to say too much, but the general theme suggested that the hosiery was designed to be a mix of classic prints with contemporary twists, which we can concur!
