We knew the new Cette Madison Tights were fabulous as soon as we heard about them and this was confirmed when the Daily Mail website went crazy for them too. Now it seems as though the whole world has fallen in love with them as they were featured this morning on… This Morning.

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!Read More
The lovely ladies on the fashion team at Look magazine have been hard at work this week thinking up the best shoes to go with your favourite hosiery, and we are loving the suggestions they came up with! Get a load of these fab team-ups, then get the look with tights from MyTights.com…
When you think of cashmere tights, what do you think of? Luxury? Well Cosmopolitan Magazine certainly thinks so! My Tights has recently been featured in Cosmopolitan’s Luxury Christmas Gift Guide as we are giving away two pairs of the Falke Cashmere Tights to the winners of Cosmopolitan’s Christmas giveaway! If you’re looking for other luxury gifts for the holidays, My Tights has a wide range of luxury items, perfect for that extra special Christmas gift you’ve been looking for!
Nothing is more luxurious than cashmere and the Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights are the best gift this Christmas season! Made from a high quality blend or cotton, cashmere and silk, these tights will not disappoint. Not only will they keep you warm, but the cashmere blend will feel unbelievably soft on your skin. Available in four shades perfect for the winter, these tights are great stocking stuffers.Read More
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
the easiest print to wear, perfect for those itching to step into the world of pattern.Read More
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”.Read More
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.Read More
Hollywood seems to be having a moment with hosiery it appears, as we’ve spotted two (not one but two!!) stunning starlets from the Hills parading their oh-so-beautiful tights.
First off was Emma Watson, featured in the October edition of Glamour magazine. We’re a big fan of the 22 year old in the office, from staple trenches to covetable bag arm candy, she clearly understands what works and what doesn’t work.
Judging by this shoot, the Harry Potter actress quite clearly does have style by the bucket load. Grown up glamour with a British edge is the theme as Emma teams a quirky tartan skirt and an Orient inspired patterned top with our Falke Fine Net Dots tights.
Available in black and in nude, the dainty tights prove that the spotty tights trend is here to stay. With Falke notorious for their high quality products, the silky tights made from fine micromesh certainly do not disappoint. What you can’t see though, and what is sadly hidden away under that pleated skirt is the lacy mock hold up design. Mid thigh, this fabulous design means that you have two trends in one pair of tights.
Make your outfit all about the spots like Emma, or team these beauties with a short hemline to get involved in the popular mock hold ups trend.
Next to inject more glamour into our day was Kristen Stewart. Hot property at the moment (perhaps for reasons other than
acting and fashion) the Twilight actress is in this month’s edition of Vogue. Proving to the world that she’s not fussed by the media scrum she’s been propelled
into, Stewart shows us how to work possibly the cutest trend ever with a gothic twist –
Positively vamping up our Jonathon Aston Sweet Rose Anklets, the 22 year old teams them with a pair of daring black hotpants, paying homage to the grunge trend that’s gracing magazine columns at the moment. With fierce red kitten heels, a graphic sweatshirt and dripping in vintage jewellery she gives the flirty ankle socks some serious attitude.
Make like Kristen and wear them with a bare leg to make them stand out or if you’re in the market for more leg coverage, team with skin coloured or black sheer tights? If they’re good enough for someone who went out with Robert Pattinson, then they’re good enough for us! Available in both black and white.
Telegraph Columnist and all-round stylish lady Lisa Armstrong has given her stamp of approval to the ankle socks trend – sort of. After an initial resistance against the trend (and we can see why – ankle socks are TRICKY to pull off) she found herself weakening, and we for one are glad.
Ankle socks are a firm favourite of designers and the fashion elite alike. Maybe it’s the rose tinted fashion glasses harking back to our carefree school days, maybe we saw the Mulberry models in them and wanted to get the catwalk look, or perhaps we British are simply suckers for a trend that keeps our tootsies warm. Whatever the reason, ankle socks are sticking around for another summer, so if you haven’t yet dipped a toe into the trend it’s time to have a go.
According to Lisa, the firm favourite of the fash pack is the Falke Ankle Socks in Grey which seemed to become a front row staple. Made from mercerised cotton, these socks are “a superior genus of ankle sock”, says Lisa. They’re certainly high quality and the mercerised cotton means that they are soft and comfortable to wear (unlike the hideously high heels you’re supposed to team them with, of course). Falke make some of the highest quality hosiery and socks around, so in many ways, it’s easy to see why this luxury, wear-with-anything style has become the ankle sock du jour.
For a summery look that’s straight off of the catwalk, you can’t go wrong with coloured socks. From ice cream pastel pinks to sunshine yellows they will perk up any outfit – we think they look great with canvas pum
ps or your favourite wedges and sundresses. Finish with a wide brimmed straw hat and you’ve got a retro summer look that will sway even the most hardened anti-ankle sock fashionista. The Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks are perfect for
this – they come in 13 gorgeous colours and, at only £3.75, you can get one to match every outfit!
Alternatively bring the look into the evening with a statement anklet. Try black lace with stiletto heels, or for a very fashion-forward look as seen on the Henry Holland SS12 catwalk you could try fishnet anklets. Rihanna has been spotted in a pair very similar to Henry Holland’s version, which she teamed with pointy courts and a satin playsuit. We also adore the Pamela Mann Sheer Heart Ankle Socks which have an opaque heart pattern and the sweetest scalloped top, and have been worn by Fearne Cotton.
But Lisa Armstrong’s choice, Falke Socks, are the way to go if you’re looking for luxury, quality and longevity – they have such a wide range including merino wool styles for cooler weather or cotton for when it gets warmer, and they also do a popular range of Men’s socks.
Maybe you’re still not quite convinced, and that’s ok. Falke tights are the next best thing – the luxury brand will never go out of style and their tights are second to none in the style stakes. But we guarantee next time you get caught out in the rain in your flip flops, you’ll start to come around to the idea…
The February Issue of Vogue may be slightly ahead of us with its Spring/Summer fashion shoots, but recently we’ve noticed bikinis and sunglasses creeping back onto the high street so we’ve decided to embrace it. In fact, with the snow disrupting our travel and our house being colder than the inside of a fridge, pictures of blue skies and deckchairs are exactly what we need.
And THEN we spotted the Henry Holland Knee Highs nestling in between the couture clothes and high end jewellery! At just £7.50 a pair, the socks aren’t exactly designer prices but the bold design from order generic cialis
s.com/gb/brand/henry-holland.html?utm_source=henry-holland-vogue&utm_medium=blog” target=”_blank”>Henry Holland has found favour with the fashion elite.
Available in pretty ice cream shades like pale pink and pastel green, they have a summery feel to them and will go perfectly with your Riviera chic this spring. You could even try layering over nude sheer tights now for a warmer version of the look. Knee highs can be tricky to wear if you are conscious of your calves looking bulky but the vertical stripe design on these balances them out for super flattering accessorising.
Team them with white basics if your dare or your spring pastel colours, and retro accessories like stack heels, oversized sunglasses and statement necklaces. You can wear them as normal knee high socks or push them down Vogue style, but beware – these are not the kind of suntan marks you want to get.
It’s not often something this cheap gets the stamp of approval from a fashion giant like Vogue, so snap these up quickly for a burst of sunshine in your winter wardrobe.
