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!

MyTights in Candis Magazine!

Last week we were featured in a great article in Candis Magazine. They tested several different tights and picked their favourites for each category. Here’s just a few of the products they loved that you can get right here on the MyTights site!fleece-thermal-tights_1

Comfort and Support: Candis absolutely loved the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Denier Tights. The Falke tights proved to be both comfortable and supportive enough to prevent tired legs at the end of the day. These tights provided a “flattering close fit – especially at the ankles – expensive-looking sheen, and comfortable waistband”. They also mentioned that even after a third wash, there were no signs of pilling or pulls!

Plus Size: It can be hard to find a pair of plus-size tights that include all the features a curvy girl needs. Pretty Polly, however, did an amazing job with their Pretty Polly Curves Plush Opaque Tights according to the magazine. “Generous through the thighs” and a “soft, comfortable waistband” made these tights a favourite for the ladies at Candis, taking note of the “purse-friendly price for a premium product”.

Winter Warmers: The Pretty Polly 200 Denier Fleecy Opaques have become standard around our office when the temperatures cool, and Candis Magazine can see why! The fleece-lined tights are “so comfortable and warm” according to them, and we can certainly vouch for it! Lying somewhere in between tights and leggings, they lack the “bulky waistline of leggings” making them a perfect “wardrobe staple”!

Check out the article on Candis Magazine for their reviews on more of the tights we carry and then test them out yourself!

Spanx Skinny Britches, as seen on Daily Mail Online

skinny-britches-short-lifestyleWe’re used to seeing shapewear giants Spanx UK in the press, so today we were delighted, but not altogether surprised, to spot the Spanx Skinny Britches collection being talked up on the Mail Online website. We’ve known for yonks that Spanx is not just for special occasions, but it seems the rest of the world is finally cottoning on.

Sure, the last thing you might feel like doing in this heat is adding an extra layer under your outfit, but the Spanx Skinny Britches collection is ideal for warmer temperatures. The medium control shapewear is super fine – the sheerest shapers available from Spanx – which means that you won’t begin to melt as soon as you slip them on. The Mail Online calls them “lightweight and breathable”, and it’s true – these really are shapers that you won’t notice you’ve got on – until the compliments on your sleek figure start pouring in, of course!

When Grunge Meets Glam!

The preening and prepping of London Fashion Week has come and gone, so it’s time for fashion to take a break from all things proper and show off its rebellious side!

Whilst pencil skirts and kitten heels are having their moment in the trend spotlight right now, we haven’t abandoned our punk roots. From leather to worn in denim, we can’t help but indulge in a slightly messier ensemble once in a while, and everything gets a dose of attitude – from our makeup right down to our hosiery.

We’re in love with

this grungy-glam tribute, featured in today’s The Sun. Demonstrating that punk and pretty can go hand in hand, they’ve teamed punchy neon shades with faded denim, with plenty of spikey accessories to boot. Naturally, no punk inspired outfit can be complete without a signature cross pattern, so our Pamela Mann Opaque Cross Tights take centre stage. Great for adding a pinch of attitude, you can choose to show your patterned tights off in a flirty hemline. For the more demure amongst us, wear underneath a simple black shirt dress, stepping into heeled ankle boots for a subtle punk style that’s office-friendly too! Remember to add at least one bright accessory though, keeping your ensemble stylish rather than somber.

If you fancy taking your newly found grunge persona out in the evening, go for the sheerer Pamela Mann Sheer Crosses Tights. Sexy and subtle, team these with killer heels and a leather skater skirt, adding a bold lip for a colour pop. For those who still adore suspender tights, the Pamela Mann Cross Suspender Tights are just the ticket, with an opaque mock suspender that works to provide coverage from the chill, whilst the sheerer top part reveals a glimpse of skin.

And for when the sun comes out? Okay, so we’re not counting on this anytime soon, but when it does decide to turn up, we’ve got our sunshine-friendly punk style down to a tee. Add fishnet socks to a circle skirt to toughen it up, or team our Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks with a chunky flatform. With every colour of the rainbow available, there’s no excuse to not collect them all! For those DIY fans, why not try adding studs to the top of your ankle socks, for a look that Vivienne Westwood, queen of punk couture would be proud of?

So neglect those kitten heels for a moment ladies, and make way for leather, denim and attitude!

The Inspiration: Russian Dolls

Hands up who’s bored of hibernation now? We can smell the sun in the air and see the light at the end of tunnel now, as we wave goodbye to blustery winter and open the front door to glorious spring! Things are notably happier during Spring. We’ve noticed the commute is full of less grumbles, and we actually don’t mind that walk to the train station now. With happier people comes happier wardrobes – and a need for new hosiery! 

For those who need a little inspiration to kick start the wardrobe overhaul, look no further than these gorgeous illustrations from Garage magazine. Inspired by the impossibly beautiful Russian Dolls, floral patterns have been clashed, adding rich reds and bold whites to balance the look. Perhaps a little too much for the pattern-phobic amongst us, take your cue from the leg wear alone.

Adding spring cheer instantly to any outfit, white is the perfect shade to add to your colour palette this season. Big on the catwalks, we predict that the purer than pure colour will be a hit on the high streets too! To get involved, make like Garage magazine and get your hands on a pair of the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Tights in Ivory. For Russian Doll kudos, style your lace tights underneath a sweet skater skirt, adding splashes of post box red throughout your accessories (when it comes to jewellery – the more, the better!) and footwear. The textured lace design will add interest whilst the bold white shade creates a striking leg silhouette.

If white isn’t really your cup of tea, turn the colour wheel upside down and focus your hosiery intentions on all things red. With this trend, shades need to be rich and intense, so we adore the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Tights, in the Flo Red. A far cry from the blacks and greys of Winter, coloured tights made an appearance on the recent LFW catwalks, meaning that the trend is here to

stay. Team with clashing florals and heels for a fashion forward ensemble, adding a hint of white to keep that Russian Doll inspiration going strong. If you’re after a more subtle daytime style, wear your red tights with a plain shift dress, adding ankle boots and a statement necklace.

Spotted in the Metro: Henry Holland Tights!

Another day, another fashionista declaring their love for House of Holland hosiery.  This time it was fashion writer and stylist Alex Gardner, who was feature in Metro newspaper’s fashion segment “What I Wear”.  She styled a vintage yellow sweatshirt with an all-black combo of beret, tube skirt and booties, and of course the star of the show – the Henry Holland Reverse Polka Dot Mock Hold Up Tights.

We extolled the virtues of these Henry Holland tights way back in August when they first arrived, and we’re thrilled they’ve been given the bona fide fashionista stamp of approval.  As Alex shows, styling is easy when you know how.  These are statement tights so she’s kept the rest of the outfit simple, avoiding a fussy skirt and keeping it all black with just one pop of colour from her batwing jumper. The amount of pattern is perfectly balanced, too, with just the sides and sleeves of the jumper covered in the striking design – which

is mirrored by the polka dot pattern on her legs which stops just above the knee.  This is a fashion bunny who really knows her stuff!

Henry Holland is no stranger to quirky mock suspender designs – in fact it was the designer himself that pioneered the classic suspender design, and since then he has come up with countless reincarnations the style to satisfy

our hunger for fresh fashion ideas.  Now you can get your suspender tights with a multitude of twists, from a jagged zig zag top or gingham patterned leg to a pretty mock lace top or sexy backseam.

Not 100% sure about suspenders but hankering after statement tights?  Look no further – Henry Holland does loads of head turning non-suspender styles like the Reverse Star Tights, which feature sheers stars on a 60 denier opaque background.  Or check out our collection of patterned tights for a look to suit, whatever your style.
