Seen MyTights in the press recently?

READ ALL ABOUT IT! That’s right, MyTights have been featured all over the press in recent weeks. It seems it’s not just us who adore gorgeous hosiery – everyone’s going crazy for it! Here’s our round up of our favourite features…

The Sunday Mirror – a recent editorial by The Sunday Mirror featured not one but TWO of our fabulous opaque tights. With the article focusing on the popular heritage trend (which we love FYI), the stylists teamed our very own Aristoc 80D Opaque Tights in Black with a tartan check shirt, black skirt and mustard yellow coat. We adored this look – the Aristoc tights were the perfect way to mute the bright colours and busy prints. If that wasn’t enough, the same article also featured one of the bestselling styles at MyTights in the shape of the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights. Opting for the stylish damson shade, these coloured tights were teamed with a ribbed burgundy dress and thick green tartan overcoat.

OK Magazine - It’s not just The Sunday Mirror who are loving MyTights’ hosiery either, with glossy monthly OK Magazine recently including the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Bianco into one of their looks. These are always popular with the press, and it’s easy to see why. Capable of adding some sweet appeal to any look, this particular editorial paired them with a silky cocktail dress and red heels – fit for Dorothy herself!

Bridesour next press feature comes from high-end bridal magazine Brides, who teamed our Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights in Wool White with a stunning white satin dress and embellished cape. Okay…so we might not wear wool tights on our wedding day personally, but nobody could deny just how fab these tights are, full of winter charm and locking out the cold.

MyTights In The Guardian: The Rise of Sheer Tights

 

Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights

Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights

Whilst we may still be shivering into our onesies and hot water bottles, the turn of the New Year means that it’s time to start considering our spring/summer wardrobes. And in the world of hosiery that means one thing… sheer tights! Here at MyTights, we love the elegant look that sheers can offer, giving your pins a subtle look and some coverage when you’re not feeling brave enough to expose a bare leg! And we’re not alone, with the likes of Kate Middleton, Alexa Chung and Rihanna all being advocates of the movement. Well, if it’s good enough for them…

Last week, The Guardian even featured the trend on their fashion blog, calling on the expertise of none other than MyTights founder, Laura Godsal, who revealed that sales of sheers are up by 13% this winter already. She added that ‘Whereas sheers and semi-sheers in recent years have been unfashionable, now you walk down the street and see women of all ages wearing them, with black being the hot favourite.’ With this in mind, we thought it would be a great idea to compile a selection of our favourite sheer tights, so all our lovely customers can find a look that’s perfect for them!

 

The budget friendly – you simply can’t go wrong with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights, amongst our bestsellers and coming with a glamorous shiny finish and choice of shades. Or opt for the Charnos Run Resist Sheer Tights if a matte look is more your thing…

Levante Class Control Tights

Levante Class Control Tights

A touch of luxury – with a chic 20 denier finish but robust 40 denier strength, the Wolford Neon 40 Tights are a real splash of quality for your hosiery drawer. If you’re after something extra special, look no further than the Falke Sensation Seamless 20 Tights, made without seams for a truly exquisite look and unrivalled comfort!

Match your skin tone perfectly – Available in 9 classic skin shades, the Falke Shelina Tights have an 8 denier appearance and slight sheen finish – a must-have for your hosiery capsule collection!

A helping hand – working to flatten your tummy, tame your thighs and lift your derriere, the Spanx In Power Line Super High Shaping Sheers come with an attached pair of classic sheer tights! Not bad, huh? Or for something a little more affordable, stock up on the Levante Class Control Tights – a real wardrobe staple! Want to read more about the rise in sheers?

MyTights does The Apprentice!

If you were one of the millions that watched The Apprentice final last night, you’ll know that Bianca Miller narrowly lost out to fellow competitor Mark Wright (no, not that one). But while we loved watching her presentation, we were keeping our eyes peeled for just one thing: MyTights founder Laura, who was asked to be on the panel of experts helping Lord Sugar make his final decision!

We were all thrilled when Laura was asked a few months ago – having been in the industry for almost 15 years, she was the natural choice to give her opinion about Bianca’s startup – a brand of sheer tights catering to any skintone.  So off she went to the Bloomsbury ballroom, where she was seated next to Lord Sugar, to watch Bianca’s pitch.  Personally, we thought she was onto a winner, with a slick, well considered presentation – and we were in good company, as the panel of industry gurus agreed.  Laura was impressed with the way Bianca handled questions from the audience (including herself…), and following on from the pitch she and several other attendees spoke with Lord Sugar to share their input.

Although we were gutted that Bianca lost out in the end, we still LOVE her idea for a range of bare leg look tights to match any skintone on the spectrum – and we’re still 100% Team Bianca!  We just know this isn’t the last we’ve seen of her or her business, “True Skin”.

In the meantime, fear not.  We’ve got a range of ultra sheer tights that really do match any skintone (including you, Bianca!)  Take a look at our lovingly crafted skintone guide to find your perfect match…

Have You Ever Considered Suspender Belts? Maybe You Should…

seduction setTypically associated with being uncomfortable and slightly risqué, suspender belts are enjoying something of a sartorial comeback this season. And it’s not just petite, twenty-something’s who are opting to ditch their traditional undies in exchange for sexy suspender belts, either! With some careful consideration about what works for your style and body shape, suspender belts really can work for everyone.

Here at MyTights, we love the glamorous and flirty look that suspender belts can offer. Equally perfect for a special occasion as for everyday wear, they’re also now incredibly easy to wear, thanks to streamlined design and simple contraptions that make wearing stockings a simple and stress-free process.  All you need to do is clip your stockings of choice to the belt and well…that’s it! Your stockings will stay firmly in place all day long. Simple, huh?

To make your lives that little bit easier, our hosiery experts have created the ultimate guide to wearing suspender belts, giving you the very best the market has to offer, and how each one could work for you.

Here’s our top picks:

What Katie Did Harlow Suspender Belt – Vintage Peach, £31

 AS FEATURED IN THE DAILY MAIL

A must for those with tummy insecurities, this vintage inspired suspender belt comes with a powermesh panel that will work to suck in your tummy, and leave you brimming with confidence. There’s also six metal tipped suspender clips for maximum security, so you’ll have complete peace of mind, too!

Jonathan Aston Suspender Belt – Fuschia, Violet, Black, £9.95

Great if you love the retro edge that suspender belts offer, but want something a little more affordable, this pretty suspender belt from Jonathan Aston is decorated with cute bows, for a feminine twist. This is also a great choice if you’re a little wary about wearing suspender belts, being lightweight and particularly discreet when compared to others!

What Katie Did Maitresse Narrow Suspender Belt – Black, £31

The easiest from our selection to wear over underwear, this elegant suspender belt from What Katie Did is perfect if you want to add a subtle retro feel to your overall look. Also coming with a powermesh panel, the belt measures only 3.5cm in width, so this will allow you complete versatility in terms of underwear choice. Anything goes!

Beautifully glamorous, and actually extremely useful. Bet you didn’t think you’d be considering suspender belts, did you?

These styles for you? Why not browse our entire range of suspender belts? You might also want to stock up on stockings, while you’re at it, too.

Elle Magazine <3 the Jonathan Aston Iris Socks!

irissocks-main‘Fear not the sock!’ is the inspirational new motto from ELLE magazine’s new article all about on-trend socks by Rebecca Lowthorpe. On her way to America wearing thick flight socks during her flight to New York Fashion week, the writer naturally dreamed of wearing cute fashion forward socks including the fabulous Jonathan Aston Iris Socks (supplied by MyTights.com of course!).

So what is it about these calf-length socks that merits all this attention? By combining pastel pink or chic navy blue shades with contrasting sparkly silver tops and ankle detailing, these cute socks tap into two top trends: pastels and glitter. Don’t you love it when two trends come together?

As for how to wear them: please do not be tempted to tuck them away into your trusty trainers. These socks deserve the limelight so always ensure that you show off as much as you can of their darling pattern by matching them with platform heels that leave parts of your foot exposed. But remember that:

1) you sadly (probably) won’t be sauntering down the catwalk so keep this look practical by leaving the rest of your outfit relatively subdued, such as a navy/denim shift dress; and

2) in this case patterns are not your friend so keep it plain.

Can’t get enough of pastel socks? Take a look at these beauties from the same fashion range: the Jonathan Aston Buttercup Socks are available in a cute pastel pink and feminine lilac with gorgeous ribbed design.

For more glitter options we recommend the Jonathan Aston Lurex Anklets that are completely covered in the glittery material and come in a whole range of sparkly shades.

So you can see there really is nothing to be afraid of, as the Jonathan Aston Iris socks seamlessly turn this tricky trend into a terrific look.

The Financial Times Loves MyTights

vertical-sheer-stripe-tights

Smashing the myth that an LBD is always the safe option, the Financial Times recently conducted a photo shoot with their models sporting high fashion black dresses with a selection of tights from Pamela Mann.

Even if the Moschino Cheap and Chic silk/polyester dress at ?695 is slightly out of your reach (more chic than cheap we?re thinking), fortunately the tights included in the feature come at a more reasonable price. To copy this look you can get our Moulin Rouge Palloni Tights, their reverse-spot style turns the classic polka dot look on its head.

Made from 40/20 denier these tights will keep you warm when you venture outside ? I recommend teaming with a polka dot dress in black with white spots and black patent heels for a co-ordinated look. The reinforced toe means that even if your makeup needs a touch up, your legs won?t ? thanks to the added durability you can dance the night away without a care! Fancy making a statement in the office? Team these striking sheers with a pencil skirt and white blouse for a dramatic yet elegant ensemble.

The Chanel silk-organza dress featuring on trend appliqu? flowers was matched with our Pamela Mann Solid Sheer Stripe Tights ? the perfect blend of girly and dramatic. Getting the look is super easy – team these sheers with a black dress with a subtle floral print. The simplistic design is perfect for a high end fashion look, and again the reinforced toe means that even as the styles change your tights will last.

Do you wear patterned tights to spice up your LBD? Or do you prefer classic sheers?

Heavenly hold ups ? The Sunday Times Style shows how…

If it?s instant glam you?re after, hold ups are a must. Far more sultry than your regular sheer tights and easier to put on than stockings (with no clips or straps!), hold ups combine your favourite design with complete freedom of movement. But it?s not just us that loves them either, as the glam squad at Sunday Times Style used our Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Hold Ups to add a little something special to their ?Bombshell? shoot! Teaming the hold ups with delicate lingerie and Bardot inspired up-do, ?we?ve been inspired to try out the look ourselves…Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Hold Ups

Delivering charm and elegance all rolled into one, the lacy hold ups are the prettiest we?ve seen yet. Complete with a tribute to all things floral, the hold ups form part of the Vintage Collection from the British brand and will look just as gorgeous dressed up as they do styled down. Created from the traditional cut & sew method, the hold ups have been made from a netted lace fabric and boast a flattering back seam detail that runs along legs that?s great for perfecting that retro style. Available in a ?goes with everything? black shade, the hold ups also come in a creamy ivory tone that will work for blushing brides to be! When it comes to styling, you can up the petal power with a patterned dress or keep things subtle with a plain silk dress & peep toe heels.

If you?ve fallen for the idea of hold ups but can?t commit to a pattern just yet, then perhaps classic & chic is the way forward. New in from Trasparenze as part of the SS14 collection, the Fly Hold Ups are ideal. Made from a sheer 20 denier, the tops of the plain hold ups have been finished with an interchangeable lace up ribbon detail for a flirty touch. Made with real silky ribbon, the detail can be tied up into a beautiful bow for added charm ? and with two ribbons to choose from, there?s twice the fun to be had.

But if you?re hoping to keep cosy when temperatures drop, the Miranda 70D Hold Ups from Trasparenze will tick all boxes. Great news for those that don?t want to give up their hold ups when the chill sets in, the thick and opaque hold ups will protect pins from the cold in style. With a range of vibrant and on trend shades to choose from, you?ll never have to struggle with finding the right colour for that party dress or office skirt. Finished with a plain, wide top, the overall look is a simple but glamorous one.

Hooked on hold ups? Check out our entire range here.

It?s official ? Woman Magazine adores fishnets too!

We love it when people agree with us ? and it seems that those at Woman HQ share our views on fishnet tights. Giving them centre stage in their main fashion feature, the chic & elegant styling showed us just how versatile netted tights can be, along with reminding us to stock up ahead of the party season…Levante Fishnet Tights

But why do we love them so? Having been around since their creation in Paris, we?ve seen the netted design evolve into a hosiery drawer essential. Notorious for their versatility, fishnets are just as perfect for dressing up as they are down, as Woman magazine prove that you can add these to just about any outfit your wardrobe throws at you, with gorgeous results.

Stealing the show, the Levante Fishnet Tights worked fabulously with the retro styling, complementing the gorgeous Great Gatsby inspired coats and dresses. Keeping peep toe lovers content, we saw plenty of open toe action, proving that when it comes to flashing that fresh pedicure, netted tights are the way forward. Already durable enough on their own merit, the netted tights remain free from any visible reinforcement, allowing you to debut your tights in any hemline or shoe shape that the occasion calls for. From pumps to playsuits, anything goes. There?s no need to fret over pesky ladders either, as the bonus of a netted tight is that if you happen to catch them, they?ll remain intact and snag free. Hooray! Available in several flattering shades, there?s a classic black that will take you from your desk to the bar, a warm natural tone that will help fake the illusion of flawless pins and a gorgeously rich chocolate colour for when you crave something a bit different.

Have you fallen for fishnets but crave a little more coverage? From Jonathan Aston, the Micronet Tights combine the allure of a fishnet design with smaller micromesh, making them a must for chilly evenings out. The perfect compromise between sexy and subtle, these alluring tights expertly toe the line between the two and with two shades to choose from (black and a warm natural colour), these really are wardrobe essentials!

If you?re after even more warmth, then why not wear a secret layer of sheers underneath your netted tights? Opt for a skin tone shade if you want to keep the layer incognito, or rely on your everyday black sheers to go with your LBD.

Three cheers for fishnet tights!
