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.

Tights, Charity & Pandemonium at MyTights.com

MyTights.com held our very own sample sale earlier this week, where we sold off vast numbers of sample hosiery and shapewear to raise money for the Renal Unit at

Royal Berks Hospital – a worthy cause, as I’m sure you’ll all agree.

We set ourselves up in the foyer of Hearst magazines (publishers of magazines including Company, Cosmopolitan and Elle) who were kind enough to host us and before long we were being mobbed – hardly surprising when tights were priced at just £1 and shapewear at just £5!

Guess Who We've Spotted…

Okay cheesy puns aside, we officially love this!  Not only has our favourite girl band reformed for the ultimate comeback but it seems one of the fab five is just as dotty about spots as we are.

Featured in this week’s Look magazine, Kimberley Walsh shows us how to work one of our favourite trends: dots.

Now the trend has been going strong for some time, emerging last season and continuing to establish itself as a key pattern in our tights drawer. Lending that feminine charm to any ensemble, the dainty dots are

Cosmo Recommends Mary Portas’ “Tights of Wonder” from MyTights.com

Well, the fashion team at Cosmo certainly know what they’re talking about.  Which I guess is what you would expect, them being experts in their field, but  too many times we follow the advice of mags and end up looking as though we dressed ourselves in the dark.  In a charity shop.  (One geared towards the elderly generation).

Not this time, though, as Cosmo have recommended the Mary Portas & Charnos “Tights of Wonder” control tights range (supplied by MyTights.com, naturally).  The three styles available – sheer, spotty and chain patterned “Scroll” tights have all got superb inbuilt control.

The boxer brief is where all the magic happens.  A series of knitted-in control bands pull in the tummy, flattening and smoothing your stomach, hips and thighs.  Plus, another band sits just under your bottom to provide a little lift – the tights are shaped to accentuate the curve of your rear without flattening it.

Cosmo recommends the Spotty Style, where as well as an all over figure fixer, you can show off your pins in a classic, ultra-chic design that’ll make you look like a sexy 40s screen siren.  The plain sheer version are perfect for the office or for under formal dresses, while the Scroll pattern is a touch funkier and works well for a fun, striking weekend look.

Cosmo calls them “wonders to add a little lift to your day” and a “body miracle”.  The maker calls them “an instant red carpet figure for real British Women”.  We call them “the ultimate in can’t-live-without accessories.”  And we’ve

no doubt that after trying them, you’ll be calling them “my new best friend”.

COLOUR BLOCK O'CLOCK

So the sunshine is beginning to fade, we’re starting to pull out our jackets and make a notable effort to remember our umbrellas in the morning.  Summer is now clinging on by a few degrees of warmth and the skies are beginning to take on that poor-excuse-for-a-grey-shade shade.

But never fear! The weather may look a bit glum but that doesn’t mean your legs have to as well. Proving it’s not all gloom and doom, bold primary coloured tights are here to save the day!

They graced the Autumn/Winter 2012 catwalks and now they’re omnipresent on the high street, colour pop hosiery is the fastest way to brighten your day and wardrobe.

Harper’s Bazaars shows us one way to work them with a striking coloured blocked look, from head to toe.  Playing with different shapes, textures and tones, create a statement by making your outfit all about that one bright colour. Or for fashionista bonus points, confidently mix and match similar shades. From tangy oranges to rich plum purples, pull the colour through your outfit, in skirts, jackets, scarves, bags and of course, hosiery. And speaking of hosiery….

Now we don’t want to toot our own horn but here at Mytights we have a very large and very desirable range of coloured opaques. To achieve the perfect colour block look, go for our Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights. With a high denier, they’ll deliver the perfect amount of coverage and the colour will remain as rich and as intense as ever. Available in an astounding 29 shades and ranging in vibrancy, there’s no end to the possibility of looks.  Pictured in Harper’s Bazaar are the Flo Purple, Flo Orange and Flo Red shades, proving that the prefix ‘Flo’ is not something to be scared of.  However, if you’re after a shade with an Autumnal nod, go for the Leaf or Rust.

Jonathan Aston have their finger in the colour pop pie too, with their 40D Opaque Tights. Slightly less opaque than others, these tights come in 21 marvellous shades, perfect for

those wanting to inject an instant colour pop as opposed to the head to toe look. Use the Bottle shade to pay tribute to the Military trend in green tights or use the Royal Blue to show off your A/W florals.

And just in case of a freak day of sunshine, and we really do mean just in case, wear the colour pop trend in Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights and even represent the colour wheel in the bright fishnet tights from Pamela Mann.

Whatever the weather, make sure your pins still paint a brightly coloured picture.
