Laura’s Choice: Valentine’s Gift & Style Guide…

Love is in the air at MyTights.com, and with February 14th fast approaching, I thought it was time to share my favourite products from our extensive Valentine’s hosiery collection with you.  Whether you’re looking for perfect gift for a loved one or seeking something special to wear on the day, I’m confident we’ve got everything you could possible need…

pamela-mann-be-my-valentine-tightsValentine’s Fashion

Even the most cynical among you won’t fail to find your inner romantic with some of our bolder Valentine’s fashion ideas.  The Pamela Mann Large Heart Opaque Tights are a smile inducing style for the more daring among you – covered in bright red hearts, these black opaques will look great paired with a scarlet wrap dress and heels.  If you love the idea of hearts but prefer something a little more understated, The Pamela Mann Sheer Hearts Tights are covered in tiny black hearts which look more like polka dots from a distance (so they’re even office appropriate!)

If your workplace allows something a little more unconventional, why not show your office crush how you feel in the Pamela Mann Be My Valentine Tights?  These stunning sheers feature the words “Be My Valentine” in calligraphic script at the ankle of each leg, extending up the back of the calf before transforming into a sultry back seam.  And whether you’re shy of saying how you feel out loud or want to declare your love from the rooftops, the Moulin Rouge Je T’aime Tights are just the ticket.  Much like the Be My Valentine tights, these feature the words “Je T’aime” at the ankle, again extending into a leg-lengthening seam up the back of the leg.  Well, if you’re going to say those three little words, why not do it in the language of love?

sweet-roses-lace-tights Seams & Lace

If you like your seams to make a little less of a statement, I highly recommend the Pretty Polly Nylons Tights.  Part of the perennially popular Pretty Polly Nylons collection, these have a high shine finish perfect for adding the glam factor to your look, and a chic, classic back seam – no fuss, no frills, and a budget friendly £6.00.  If you’re a fan of the elegant seamed look but want to treat a loved one (or yourself!) to a little luxury, the Falke High Heel Seamed Tights bring beautiful design and superior quality to the back seam style.

Lace is another way to add an indulgent edge to your Valentine’s day look.  The utterly gorgeous Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Tights combine luscious lace with a sultry seam in a vintage-inspired cut and sew design, meaning you get the best of both worlds.  I personally adore my Wolford Nahla Tights, which blend a floral motif and net design for a really intricate look – I love teaming mine with a berry pink dress and statement necklace.

Stockings & Supenders

Though I’m not often spotted in stockings and hold ups due to my inclination to cycle at top speed around London, it’s undeniable that they’re a Valentine’s Day staple.  One of our most

Sensuous-stockings

popular stockings styles, the Cette Berlin Stockings are about as chic as they come, and feature a sexy back seam and traditional Cuban heel design to boot.  After a plainer option?  The Aristoc Sensuous 10D Stockings are a classic sheer stocking with a beautiful lace top.  Of course, fishnets are the way to go if you want something that’s both a classic and fashion forward – try the Levante Fishnet Stockings, and rein in the raunchy by teaming these black fishnet stockings with a really simple black dress and pointy court shoes.

Don’t forget to top these off with a little something from our range of suspender belts.  Stockings and suspender sets are also perfect if you’re shopping for a gift – the Jonathan Aston Seduction Set contains back seam stockings with a matching black suspender belt, or the sensational Oroblu Amelie Kit contains plain opaque stockings and a sweet polka do design suspender belt.

And if you are going to be on the go, my top tip is to avoid wrap dresses, as they’re liable to give away a little more than you’d perhaps like of your choice of hosiery!

Boudoir-Lace-Suspender-TightsHold Ups & Strip Panty

If you just can’t handle the faff of suspender belts and fiddly straps in your already hectic lifestyle, take the stress away with hold ups and strip panty styles.  The Wolford Eyla Stay Ups and Le Bouget Essential 15 Hold Ups are both ideal for Valentine’s as they both have discreet red detailing at the tops (which are modern and minimalist on the former, and luxuriously lacy on the latter).  Strip panty tights are even more convenient, as they mix the look and feel of stockings with the practicality of tights.  The Trasparenze Strip Panty 20D Suspender Tights are our bestselling style, but I also love the Charnos Boudoir Lace Suspender Tights for a little extra special detailing.

So whether it’s something sexy for a Valentine’s date, some fun fashion to liven up the day or a gorgeous gift for someone special, I hope I’ve given you ample inspiration to make this Valentine’s Day your best (dressed) one yet.

Until next week…

Laura’s Choice – Seams

falke-high-heel-seamedOnce upon a time all tights had a back seam.  When tights were first made, they were stitched at the back instead of woven into a tube – and so the back seam was born. Now an iconic vintage look, during the war women who couldn’t afford tights on their rations even used to paint on a pretend seam onto their legs. Luckily we do not have to go to such extremes nowadays ladies, and with such a multitude of back seam tights available there is a pair for everyone!

Classic

I adore the luxury German brand Falke, and their exquisite High Heel Seamed Tights in 12 denier do not disappoint. They provide a superior fit and feel, and their matte finish is extremely versatile. Invest in a pair and prepare to join the Falke fan club. For a purse friendly classic pair, the Pamela Mann Jive Seamed Tights in 10 denier feature a glam back seam and traditional Cuban heel – perfect for fashionistas eager to emulate the glamour of yesteryear. The Moulin Rouge High Heels Tights are also available in navy for a subtle twist on a classic style.

If you lust after a high gloss finish but don’t want to skimp on that vintage Cuban heel and solid coloured sole, then the Pretty Polly Nylons Back Seam Tights are a brilliant alternative. Part of the immensely popular ‘Nylons’ range from Pretty Polly these 10 denier sheer tights are sublimely shiny and available in 2 different sizes.

Fishnets are so popular right now, and what could be more alluring than back seamed fishnets? For a flirty yet subtle style that won’t break the bank go for the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Back Seam Tights. Or for a more prominent net we have the Pamela Mann Wide Net Seamed Tights, which also feature a contrasting red back seam for a sultry look.

Fashion

Superstar Beyoncé wore polka dot tights with a sexy back seam at the Grammy’s last week – and where Queen B goes, fashion lovers everywhere are sure to follow.  Get the look with the Moulin Rouge High Heels Dotty Tights – their darling dots, slight sheen finish and – of course- chic seam are perfect for that LBD.

For ladies who love to shimmer, why not choose a metallic backseam? In 10 denier, the Moulin Rouge Metallic Seam Tights adorn your legs with either a silver or gold sparkly back seam. If you still want to feel glamorous but a subtler look is what is required then the Jonathan Aston Contrast Seam and Heel Lycra Tights have are available with a red back seam. Their 15 denier and shiny finish will leave your legs looking divine.

moulin-rouge-metallic-seamFrom contrasting back seams to ankle details, Pamela Mann are experts at giving vintage styles a modern twist. The Pamela Mann Love Seam Tights in15 denier are extremely popular with our beloved customers thanks to the romantic detailing on the heel with ‘Love’ spelt out in beautiful calligraphy. Or say it en français instead with the Moulin Rouge Je T’aime Seam Tights – parfait for all you Francophiles. Romance is again in the air with the Pamela Mann Bow Seam Ankle Tights featuring a cute bow ankle detail. Their sheer 15 denier and white shade are brilliant for blushing brides, too!

For another sweet option look at the Pamela Mann Heart Seam Tights in 15 denier. Instead of a classic line, their back seam is formed of many small hearts. Voluptuous ladies can opt for the Pamela Mann Heart Seam Plus Size Tights – especially created for glamorous ladies with curves.

Nothing says elegance to me like sumptuous lace! The Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Tights are available in either black or white is covered in delicate rose details and featuring a subtle back seam. Not just gorgeous but fashionable too, these lace tights have been featured in Vogue no less.

A quirky alternative are the Pamela Mann Zips Tights with an appliquéd gold zip detail running all the way down the back of your leg in lieu of a seam. In 50 denier, these opaque tights will also keep you toasty warm.

jonathan-aston-seamed-stockingHold Ups and Stockings

Stockings just cannot be beaten for their sultry allure. The Cette Berlin Sheer Seam & Heel Stockings come in 15 denier and bring a 1940’s feel to your hosiery drawer with that classic Cuban heel and back seam. Their matte finish renders them suitable for every occasion leaving you with the best dressed legs around. If you prefer a shinier finish to stand out in the leg limelight, the Jonathan Aston Seam and Heel Lycra Stockings are the pair for you. In 15 denier with a shiny finish these stockings provide a fabulous fit.

Now for a ravishing red option! With a bold colour pop seam, I highly recommend the Pamela Mann Jive Seamed Stockings. Made in 10 denier and featuring a narrow back seam, slight sheen finish and Cuban heel, this pair are perfect for matching with a sultry scarlet number.

Stockings look stunning but hold ups never leave you searching for that missing suspender belt. The Jonathan Aston Seam and Heel Lycra Hold Ups in15 denier pack a shiny finish along with that obligatory back seam and Cuban heel combination.  For a subtler take on that Cabaret chic, Pamela Mann Sheer Jive Seam Hold Ups are available in nude.

Laura’s Leggings: The Ultimate Guide to All Things Footless

falke-cotton-touch-footless_1Whilst leggings will never occupy the same space in my heart devoted to tights, I can’t help but notice they are selling like hot cakes of late, which is why I have thrown in my two-penneth on the subject and come up with a round-up of the best footless tights and leggings, whatever the occasion…

Classic
Classic styles will take you from day to night with ease and go with pretty much everything you own. So when the wind is howling and the rain is lashing against the windows, reach for the Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Thermal Opaque Footless Tights, which boast a sumptuously thick 200 denier design and a fleecy lining to keep you extra warm and comfortable.  However, if it’s multi-coloured legs you crave, the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights are available in over 15 shades at an exceedingly purse friendly price! They also come in a plus size version, but if you find the Pamela Mann 50D Plus Size Footless tights a little too light, you could also take a look at the Cette London Plus Size Leggings for a comfortable fit for curves in a 60 denier.

For extra comfort the Falke Cotton Touch Footless Leggings contain high levels of cotton, keeping them breathable and cosy. Super soft, these luxurious leggings will keep your legs warm on even the bitterest winter mornings and provide a great fit. But if you’re the type of girl who wants it all, you will adore the Spanx Look at Me Cotton Leggings, which contain an impressive 64% cotton that is extra thick for superior coverage – plus, with the tried and tested technology that has made Spanx a global name, these leggings will trim any tummy and shape that bum.

spanx-read-to-wow-structured-leggings

If after all these choices, you’re wondering what is the difference between leggings and footless tights? Well, the simple answer is thickness! Leggings tend to be thicker than footless tights and this means that you can wear them under a shorter top.

Workwear/Elegant
I adore products that prove that there is no need to sacrifice comfort for elegance. Perfect for the workplace or an elegant evening look, the Trasparenze Lituania Leggings provide both in spades thanks to their matte finish and range of classic colours. When you are dressing up for one of those extra special occasions, the Trasparenze Push Up Leggings are an excellent choice. This magical pair lifts and enhances your derrière, leaving you looking stunning in that slim fitting dress.

If you are after an all-encompassing coverage for bums, tums and thighs and want to make sure that your silhouette stays seamless, then the Spanx Ready-to-Wow Structured Leggings are divine. Providing stronger control, you can wear these deluxe leggings as trousers thanks to their super thick design – with all the in-built benefits of Spanx. The thick generous waistband and medium level of control means that they will feel comfortable to wear all day, and no centre seam ensures that no unsightly lines ruin your outfit.

Fashion
jonathanaston-polar-mainPrefer your legwear to make more of a statement? Fashion followers take heed, the Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings are ideal for providing that leather look that is tipped to be on-trend in SS14. These leggings are very Olivia Newton-John, however, we recommend matching these lovely leggings with a fluffy white jumper instead of a full leather jumpsuit à la Olivia!

If snakeskin is the one that you want, the Trasparenze Mystery Leggings feature a subtle snakeskin effect. To complete the whole animal kingdom (and if you’re feeling particularly brave) we also have Pamela Mann Leopard Footless Tights, in a bold monochrome design. After something to help you stand out from the crowd on a Friday night? Our Wet Look Leggings by Pamela Mann are for you. Sublime and shiny these leggings would match perfectly with black high patent heels for a glamorous, head turning look. A glittery alternative for disco worthy legs are the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights – perfect for fans of all things that glimmer and shine.

Sportswear
I find Spanx’s range of leggings absolutely sublime for the gym, and the Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Close Fit Pant allows me to keep fit in style. Their medium control ensures keeps us feeling comfortable and svelte during exercise, providing plenty of flexibility – after all that is pretty important on the treadmill! The moisture wicking technology makes sure that you stay comfortable and hygienic while you work out, and the icing on the cake (or granola bar) is the curved seam for a flattering shape.
sparkly-footless-tightsFor a similar look and feel but with shorter length, I would suggest the Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Knee Pant – a little more palatable for when the sun finally makes an appearance.

Kids
Last but definitely not least, the Country Kids Capri Tights are suitable for kids from 3-11. They contain high levels of exquisite Pima cotton for both comfort and quality and are available in a range of colours including pretty pastels. Or if your little princess is more of a disco diva, obsessed by all things that glimmer, the Country Kids Sparkly Footless Tights will most definitely impress even her discerning eye.

So whether you love leggings for sport or for fashion, for the office or just for the kids, there is definitely something here for everyone – even myself!

Until next week…

LAURA’S CHOICE – WOOL TIGHTS

Falke Soft Merino Wool 2

download software cheap

Storms are afoot and I am very tempted to hibernate under the duvet and read one of the many books that I received for Christmas. Thankfully, these woolen tights make this time of year much more manageable. We have such a wide range of delectable and cosy hosiery that it can be difficult to know where to begin, but thankfully you have narrowed it down with your reviews left on Feefo, our independent review service. Here are my recommendations, and what you had to say about them.

These classic wool tights will go with everything you own ? so no more waking up to find there?s a blizzard outside and you have nothing to wear.

Levante Plain Wool Tights“Warm and cozy in sub zero Celsius weather.”

If you reckon that the weather is just too frightful to face while wearing your favourite skirt, then think again.?Levante Plain Wool Tights?not only look divine in their subtle shades but they also keep your legs wonderfully warm. These sumptuous tights?also boast a reinforced toe making them winter walk proof.

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights“These tights were exactly what I wanted and I am delighted. They are well constructed which means that they are comfortable to wear. They are also durable and following the washing instructions means that in terms of depreciation, they will eventually pay for themselves!”?

Trasparenze Wool Gennifer

These woolen wonders feel luxuriously soft thanks to a special finishing treatment. Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights are pitch-perfect any time of day, with wool on the outside to protect you from the elements and cotton weaved inside to keep you comfortable. Equally, thanks to the hand-fit toe technique, there is no visible seam at the toe for increased comfort. These elegant opaques are available in six different chic shades. Reassuringly thick and soft, these wool tights are designed to last.

However, coloured tights provide a superb solution for adding a bit of welcome colour to those wardrobe staples.

Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights“I get these tights all the time. The quality is excellent, they are warm (I live in Alaska and wear dresses to work) and the price is affordable.”?

For impeccable style in a myriad of colours, I would suggest?Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights. From the violet version in Prugna, to the pine green shade Bosco, there is an ideal option for everyone. I personally adore the rich raspberry tones of Rubino – perfect for warming up a winter outfit, such as a grey chevron knitted shift dress.

The fashion tights below prove that it is very possible to keep warm and look fabulous.

Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights? – “These are superb. Warm, yet flattering.?

Jonathan Aston Alaska

I love tights that work and play hard, like the?Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights?which ensure that you look stylish and feel snug. Team these showstoppers with an aubergine skirt and cream turtleneck for a subtle yet on-trend look. This fashion hosiery is available in black and navy ? perfect for a multitude of ensembles.

Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Tights“Very warm and snug! Excellent quality!”

When I fancy a slightly different look that is still warm enough to keep my toes toasty then I tend to plump for?Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Tights. The fine rib design is exceedingly flattering and adds an unexpected touch to my outfits. Whether you are 4?9? or 6?1?, slim or curvaceous, with 4 different sizes there is a perfect fit for everyone.

Levante Wool Rib Tights“These tights are soft, warm, and incredibly comfortable. The waistband stays up but doesn’t bind, and the toes are reinforced but don’t irritate.”

The?Levante Wool Rib Tights?are available in elegant coffee shades. Armed with a generous 100 denier, these opaques give my legs an even coverage. The flat lying waistband and barely there seams make these tights a joy to wear. Personally, I find that the Mocca shade goes perfectly with little tan leather boots, an aubergine pleated skirt and a chocolate cashmere jumper.

Aristoc 100 denier cashmere

For another subtle twist on a classic staple, I also adore?Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights. The design elongates your legs, giving self-assurance even in the coldest of weathers. Durability is always a key factor when selecting tights and these toasty soft tights boast a superior thickness. ??Again, these tights benefit from the hand-fit toe technique providing a superior fit. The wide range of different shades available means that you do not have to sacrifice warmth in order to achieve your required look.?Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights – “Wonderful quality as always. Warm, cosy and great colours.”?

Now for even more luxurious tights, these pairs will keep you feeling sumptuously snug no matter the weather.

Aristoc Cashmere Blend 100 Denier Tights“I have MS so getting tights on can be a huge struggle. These are soft, stretchy and comfortable and slide on easily.”

The addition of a touch of cashmere gives these opulent opaques a luxurious soft feel and their 3D construction gives 100% even coverage as well as warmth.?Aristoc Cashmere Blend 100 Denier Tights?also have a soft 4cm waistband, so these tights provide pure comfort from toe to tip. Match these tights with a long light pink coat for a delightfully fashionable but equally functional look.

Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights“Lovely quality, soft with a hint of shine. Quite generous sizing and extremely comfortable to wear.”

Woolly tights do not come more deluxe than this! Woven from a generous high-quality mixture of cotton, cashmere and silk,?Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights?is haute hosiery that again provides you with comfort and style. The three materials work perfectly together, the silk makes these tights beautifully smooth, the cashmere keeps you sumptuously warm, while the cotton content also provides an additional comfort factor. Falke weaves their tights in such a way that they always provide a snug and flattering fit. My favourite shade is navy, however there are 3 others from which you can choose.

We hope that these splendid woolen tights will turn your winter from freezing to wonderful.

Until next time…

What to wear over Xmas

Christmas for me really is the most wonderful time of the year. I adore smelling the pine trees, listening to those sweet carollers, watching classic films, and of course unwrapping a new pair of luxurious tights! This magical season provides us with a multitude of options and opportunities to show off our legs and navigate the packed high street in style.

Christmas Eve
If you are attending a Christmas Eve event then these Starburst?tights from Jonathan Aston are sure to put a spring in your step. Made with care from a multicoloured glitter yarn, your legs are bound to attract admiring glances while you dance away to Wham and Wizard.

If you are craving a vintage look with a fun twist then why not plump for these Starstudded tights again from Jonathan Aston? These 60 denier sheers gleam as much as they sparkle. Evoking 50?s glamour with a sexy backseam made from crystals, you?ll have plenty of admirers ushering you towards the mistletoe.

Are you craving a pair of glamorous stockings without the hassle? There is no need to sacrifice any of your ?getting ready? time with these Yacht tights from Trasparenze.?Their shimmering floral garter is just divine, achieving a seductive yet refined look. Pretty shimmering polka dots created from metallic thread are both fun and elegant. Team these twinkly tights with a black lace dress for a sophisticated look. These tights would go perfectly with a festive ensemble, the sparkly polka dots doubling for falling snow.

Christmas Day

Your tree is looking marvellous, the living room is so beautifully ornate it puts Kirstie Allsopp to shame, and now the only thing left is to decorate your legs! If you are a big fan of all things festive then these Celeste Stein Christmas Glittery Ornament tights are for you.?Celeste Stein have created a beautiful design crammed with Christmas ornaments woven from a high quality metallic thread. I?m wearing these jolly tights with my bright red Boden shift dress.

However, if you would rather the baubles remained on the tree, you can still get into the Christmas spirit with a pair of deep crimson tights. Pamela Mann?s 50 Denier tights are available in a vast range of colours, including our favourite vibrant scarlet shade ? ideal for this merry season.?Not only will these opaques look fantastic, they will also give an even coverage thanks to the super smart 3D elastane fibre. I advise you to match this perky hosiery with a mid-length black leather pleated skirt, a crisp white shirt and pearls ? 3 key trends for Yuletide.

Boxing Day

It?s raining outside, the temperatures are plummeting, and therefore what could be better than relaxing in a pair of comfy, cosy woollen socks? Our Pantherella Tabitha anklet socks are so luxurious, and they are made from such sumptuous cashmere, that even your most Scrooge-like friends will be impressed.

At MyTights, all we want for Christmas is a pair of sublime Transparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks. Made with a generous amount of mixed wool and elastic, these socks will keep your toes toasty ? but won?t slip down as you sip on your Buck?s Fizz.?It?s just a shame that for many people this year these stunning socks will be hidden under a festive onesie. ?Match these with a tartan skirt and a white woolen jumper for Highland chic.

And last but not least? if the children haven?t quite been pampered enough this year, then do be sure to look at our Falke Kid?s catspad socks.?Fitted with anti-slip material, the little ones can run around with their new toys safely ? phew!

Have yourselves a merry little Christmas ladies!

Until next time…

Laura?s Choice ? Stockings & Suspenders ? The sultry combination!

Effortlessly elegant and sultry, the stockings & suspender combination is a timeless one. Far more exciting than your regular sheers and hold ups, the super chic duo has fast become a treat for any lingerie drawer. Championed by the likes of Dita Von Teese and vintage hosiery experts What Katie Did, you?ll find that getting dressed in the morning has never been so much fun.

Stockings & Suspenders

But with the rise in popularity comes to need for more variety, making those decisions even trickier. As ever, I?ve narrowed down the best of the bunch to leave you with happy legs and fabulous lingerie collections…

As classic as they come…

If you?re going to commit to the look, a stash of great quality stockings is a must. For the utmost versatility, I recommend keeping things sheer, opting for a 15 denier pair that will work for both the office and then that party later on. From Oroblu, the Bas Lycia 15 Stockings are ideal, as they combined a 15 denier appearance with smooth, matte finish. Available in five shades (with a classic black and rich brown amongst others), these arrive with a plain top. But what to pair it with? Keep your look fuss free with the Jonathan Aston Suspender Belt, with four adjustable straps and a slight sheen finish.? What?s more, the belt arrives with a purse friendly price, proving that looking fabulous needn?t cost the earth.

Wrap up in style!

?Tis the season for unfriendly temperatures, but that doesn?t mean you have to give up your stockings & suspender habit. Making the world a better place (sort of), Levante have created the Plain Wool Stockings, for an even 100 denier appearance and cosy wool feel. Wonderfully warm, the matte stockings are great for everyday wear and are guaranteed to keep that chill at bay. The tops of your stockings are in keeping with the chic style and are free from any frills.To complete the look, I recommend the Maitresse Suspender Belt from What Katie Did. Vintage inspired and packed full of va va voom, the wide belt combines both satin & powermesh panels for a glamorous silhouette and instant spring in your step. With six metal tipped suspender clips to keep your stockings in place(instead of the usual four), the belt also comes with a handy hook & eye fastening for ease of wear. A must for those who adore seams, you?ll find that the additional clips will keep the design on the straight & narrow. When it comes to choosing your size, keep in mind that as the garment is vintage inspired ? the sizing is too. Running up a little smaller than your average highstreet brand, make sure to check the size guide before adding to your basket.

Fabulous in fishnetsStockings & Suspenders

If you?re after something a little different, then the solution is netted. A fun option, the Fishnet Stockings from Levante will look gorgeous whether it?s work or play. Your fishnet stockings feature a fine-gauge net throughout, with small holes offering a glimpse of your pins when up close. Offering an even coverage from the toes to the tops, the lightweight stockings are ideal for warmer weather, making sure you stay refreshed no matter how long you?re in hosiery for. Those with never ending pins will be glad to know that the Tall/Extra Tall version will accommodate heights up to 6?1?.

And to go with them? From retro lingerie experts What Katie Did, the Narrow Maitresse Suspender belt is easier to wear with underwear than other styles, making it a must for those wanting to build up their lingerie drawer. ?With six metal tipped suspender clips to keep stockings straight & secure, the belt features both satin and powermesh panels to slim & trim in utter secrecy.

Gorgeous gifts…from you to you.

Whilst mixing and matching is fun, it?s always nice when it?s already done for you. Stocking & suspender belt sets will sit pretty in your drawers and wardrobes, and can be reserved for those extra special nights in. For a budget friendly gift that will go down a treat, I recommend that Seduction Set from Jonathan Aston. Combining a 15 denier seamed stocking with a chic belt, the all in one set takes the hard work out of looking good.

And from the purse friendly to the luxurious, the Amelie Stockings & Suspender Belt Kit from Oroblu is utterly gorgeous. Providing a readymade ?outfit?, the kit comes with opaque 40 denier stockings and a deep suspender belt. Decorated to resemble a corset, strips of tulle fabric overlap each on the front of the belt, for a fancy and feminine touch. With one strip featuring a lacy design and the others featuring a pretty polka dot print, this suspender belt is almost too beautiful to hide away!

Another option is to opt for one of our many strip panty styles ? all in one tights with the appearance of stockings, meaning you don?t have to worry about clips popping open or stockings becoming twisted throughout the day.? I especially love the Charnos Lace Boudoir Suspender Tights, which features a floral lace mock belt with classic, sheer 15 denier legs.

If you?re in possession of a healthy stocking supply but you?re after a new belt, then the Diamond Suspender Belt from Trasparenze is just the ticket. With a silky satin feel and look, the skirt style suspender belt features diamond shaped front panels and a frilly waistband for a dramatic look.

Until next time ladies…

The only gift guide you need this season…

With only a few weeks left to the big day, it?s time to get Christmas wrapped up ? with a little help from our gift guide. Perfect for last minute ideas or luxurious treats, our ultimate gift guide caters for everyone. From fashionable friends to fussy teens, I?ve narrowed down a few of my favourites that will go down a treat!

Stocking Fillers

Happy Socks

For a Christmas treat that won?t break the bank, stocking fillers are a fabulous idea. Whether it?s sweet socks or a pair of cosy tights, we?ve just the selection.

New to the MyTights family and a favourite of mine, Happy Socks is a quirky Swedish brand that adds fashion forward pattern to soft cotton socks. For a walk on the wide side, the Women?s Animal Print Socks are perfect and feature a medium sized leopard print design that runs from the toes and until the tops. With a soft feel and smooth appearance, the combed cotton ankle socks will earn you big brownie points and are available in two colour ways for a touch more choice. With an entire range for men too, these are all round winners.

And for toasty pins this winter, look no further than the Pretty Polly Fleecy 200D Opaque Tights. A best seller of ours and a hosiery drawer favourite, the fleece lined tights work to keep legs cosy no matter the temperature ? and at a price friendly price, you can afford to treat the whole family. Available in a clever footless version and snug knee high too, staying warm has never been so stylish.

Gifts for MumFalke Cuddle Pads

She?s made you endless cups of teas and has listened to every moan & groan for years ? so now it?s time to a give a little back. Starting with the Cuddle Pads from Falke isn?t a bad way to begin either, as the luxurious soft and cosy socks feel as good as they sound. Arriving in a gorgeous presentation box (so you can forgo the fiddly ribbon and sticky tape), the slipper socks arrive with an anti-slip sole and cotton & wool blend.

For the yummy mummies out there, anything from Wolford is set to impress. Oozing glamour from every fibre, the Velvet De Luxe 50 Tights from the brand will sit pretty under the tree. Made from a matte 50 denier, the classic opaque tights are deliciously luxurious, treating legs to a velvety soft feel and perfect fit. And with four shades to choose from (anthracite, black, brown and navy), you?ll stay firmly in her good books come the new year.

Gifts for Fashionable FriendsPretty Polly & Patternity - Bricking It

If she knows her Prada from her Miu Miu, chances are she?ll adore new additions to her wardrobe this Christmas. For friends that love hosiery as much as you do, treat them to a little something from our range of fashion tights. A must for pattern fiends, the Pretty Polly & Patternity Bricking It Tights will add instant fun to an unloved LBD and keep her legs ahead of the fash pack. Featuring an unusual brick pattern throughout, the opaque tights are available in a ?one size fits most?? but do check with the size guide before adding to your basket.

Bold & daring not her thing? For a subtle style, the Plumetis Dot Tights from Moulin Rouge will go with anything & everything. Created from a sheer 20 denier, the tights are decorated with small opaque spots that will work for the office…and then that party afterwards. Gift her all three colours to kick start her SS14 wardrobe.

Gifts for Him

Spanx Cotton Crew

Not to be overlooked when it comes to Christmas, we stock a fabulous range of men?s socks. From smart silk socks to everyday pairs, nothing says ?I love you? you more than a new addition to that drawer. Classic and comfortable, luxury brand Falke have designed the ultimate pair of men?s socks for those on the go. A beautiful blend of soft merino wool and breathable cotton, the Airport Short Men?s Socks will add a little style to that daily commute and with nine shades to choose from, there?s one for every day of the week (and a couple to spare)!

If the man in your life looks after his appearance as much as you (and has a good sense of humour!), why not treat him to something from the Spanx for Men range? Turning their attention to the male torso, shaping experts Spanx have design the discreet but effective Cotton Compression Crew. Using a strong control level, the tee will firm the chest & ab area for complete body confidence. And if he?ll like this, why not check out the Spanx Zoned Performance Crew too?

So with most of the family covered, I think I deserved a well earned treat for myself…

Happy shopping ladies!

Until next time…

Party Tights for the party season!

LBD? Tick. Vertiginous heels? Tick. Tights?…

As the party season fast approaches, it?s now the time to get that hosiery drawer in order. If you?ve any chance of keeping up with that social calendar, then outfit planning in advance is a must! No longer the afterthought, tights (and socks for those who can survive arctic temperatures) are an inexpensive and fashion forward way to add life to that weary LBD or unloved skirt. Ranging from the blingtastic to subtle shimmer, there?s a pair to complement every ensemble.

Disco DivaLurex Highball Tights

To make sure you dazzle on the dance floor, I recommend a hefty dose of glitter. Far easier to style than you may think, glitzy tights will instantly add fun to that understated outfit, and will give those everyday courts a mini-makeover. From Pamela Mann, the Lurex Highball Tights will do just that, with the extra special opaques letting you shimmer your way through the night. With a thick 80 denier appearance, the tights??positively shimmer,?courtesy of the lurex fabric used. Free from any brief, the all over glitter remains uninterrupted, leaving you free to wear any hemline that takes your fancy (ideal for those roller discos!).? If you want to show off your festive pedicure, then the footless version of these tights is a must with the Lurex Highball Footless Tights reaching ankle length.

Subtle Shimmer

If head to toe glitter isn?t your cup of tea, then why not take things down a notch with some subtle shimmer? A favourite for work parties and dinner dates, the demure look will take you from the office to the bar without the need to change in between. And given that that shimmer & shine are must have ingredients for the party season ahead, I couldn?t recommend the Starlight Tights more. From the Jonathan Aston Premium range, the 20 denier sheers have been made with a multi-coloured glitter yarn that shimmers and glitters when catching the lights. A personal favourite of mine and another addition to the Jonathan Aston range, the Starburst Tights are equally as elegant. From the knee outwards, small circular and flat discs scatter the legs of the tights, glimmering as though actual stars are decorating your tights. These look great when worn underneath a shift dress and heels, with metallic accessories providing even more glamour.

If you?re not ready to let go of your trusty black opaques, then the Lurex Spot Opaque Tights from Charnos are perfect for making the transition. Transforming the much loved polka dot print, small metallic spots appear throughout ? choose from gold or silver, both on a black opaque background. ?To dress up, step into killer heels, teaming your opaques with a brushed silk dress and an oversized glitter clutch for even more shimmer.

Queen of Quirky

For the occasions when understated just won?t suffice, may I point you in the direction of Henry Holland. Noted for his tongue in cheek style, the Alphabet Silver Tights from his Pretty Polly collaboration are the easy way to add designer cool to your outfit. The sheer 20 denier tights are decorated with sparkly silver letters that spell ?HOUSE? on one leg and ?HOLLAND? on the other. A true conversation starter if ever I had seen one, I love teaming mine with a festive red dress and heels.

The collaboration fun doesn?t stop there either, as Pretty Polly have teamed forces with designer of the moment, Joanne Hynes. Notorious for her playful use of colour and cut out shapes, the Optical Illusion Tights do not disappoint. The 60 denier opaques are decorated with a foxy glitter backseam whilst the top half of your tights is transformed with shimmering cut outs and large helping of postbox red. Coupled with a velvety soft feel and flat seams, it?s easy to see why no party outfit is complete without them!

Lovely & LuxuriousWolford Collier Tights

Given the amount of time we will spend on the dance floor, treating legs to a little luxury is imperative. Thankfully, Wolford agrees with this, and have made it easy to feel good and look great at the same time. Embracing the embellished trend in time for the festive season, the Collier Tights from the Austrian brand are a godsend. Made from a soft & smooth 60 denier, the tights boast an embellishment mock suspender design with a beautiful backseam to boot. Small silver diamante and larger silver flat discs have been carefully glued and arranged in a hanging chandelier design, with a singular row of small diamantes running down the back of your legs. If that doesn?t say luxury, I don?t know what does!

For true elegance this season, treat hosiery drawers to the Hoara Tights from Oroblu?. Delivering a 40 denier appearance, your lacy tights have been packed full of decorative delights. The overall look is a busy but beautiful one, with a mock fishnet bringing a contemporary sense to the traditional floral motifs. I love to style mine with a chic wrap dress and boots, keeping accessories to a minimum to let the tights steal the show.

Three cheers for the party season!

Until next time…

Laura
