Hollywood Takes On Hosiery

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.

Ankle Socks are IN: It's official…

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

buy anabolic steroids

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…

Henry Holland in Vogue!

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.

MyTights.com in Cosmo!

The style gurus at Cosmopolitan Magazine always seem to get it right… so who are we to argue with their rules for a happy wardrobe even when we’re broke and freezing?  You can read the entire article here, but we’ve pulled together the highlights …

1)      There’s no shame in faking it

Cosmo reckons that when push comes to shove, there’s no harm in using shapewear to supplement your gym routine in the quest for a gorgeous figure.  Having felt our own resolve dwindle as January went by and watching every single New Year’s Resolution fly out of the window, we reckon there’ no harm in using shapewear to replace your gym routine.  Flat stomach in 2 minutes?  Yes please.

2)      You CAN work bright colours and still feel chic

If the thought of acid and neon brights coming back into vogue any time soon is enough to make you break out in a nervous rash, it’s time to learn that colour is not a no-no.  Pastels are going t

o be everywhere this spring and there’s nothing easier than a mint green handbag or pale lilac pair of tights to perk you up for Spring (when it finally arrives, of course).  Browse our range of coloured tights and team with creams and pale greys for a look that is as right on trend as it is classically simple.

3)      It’s “All in the Legs”

Of course Cosmo caters for the braver fashionistas, too, and they think that a pair of statement tights are “an ingenious and affordable way of updating and changing your look”.  They love the Pamela Mann coloured Fishnet Tights (pictured), supplied by MyTights, and the Henry Holland for Pretty Polly range, as worn by Jessie J.

Great style advice from the Cosmo team, and just in time to update your wardrobe before it begins to look horribly bare!

How to… wear WOW Tights

Wondering how to wear statement tights without looking silly? Or bored of wearing trousers all the time now the weather has (finally) turned wintery? MyTights.com were featured in a handy how-to guide in the press this week, so we thought we’d share their top 5 ways to work statement tights…

1) Colour blocking
With the 60s revival still going strong, colour blocking is going to be around for a while longer yet, and what easier way than to buy a simple pair of coloured tights? A simple, cheap and cheerful addition to your wardrobe, they start from a teeny tiny £4.10, so you really can afford to match them to everything in your wardrobe!

2) Embellished
Spots are hot at the moment, but try a twist on the trend with the Charnos 75 Brigit

The Complete Empath Toolkit: New Age Ebook & Audio Seminar Package

te Tights (the actual tights in the feature, supplied by MyTights.com) which feature glittering Swarovski crystals up the back of the leg for a sparkling addition to a glamourous black dress.

3) Texture
Different textures can work really well as long as you don’t go OTT. Try leg lengthening ribbed tights with cotton skirts or silky shirts.

4) Stars
The stars trend last year was begun by designers like Christopher Kane, and planetary movement have dictated they’re set to last well in to 2010. Snap up a pair of the Henry Holland Superstar Tights, available with either classic black or spangly multi-coloured stars.

5) Elaborate Girly
Lace tights and girly designs like bows and floral motifs are the order of the day. Use them to glam up your party frock, or add a sweet edge to a tough biker look.

Gok Wan Recommends Pretty Polly

Our favourite Super Stylist Gok Wan shows you how to get three glam looks from one simple vest dress in this week’s Reveal Magazine. And the self styled “Auntie Gok” told the readers what we’ve always known – if in doubt, plump for statement tights! Styling the dress with a dramatic feather overlay (a length of feather trim stitched onto the neckline of the dress) he added the gorgeously twinkly Pretty Polly Embellished Tights, supplied by MyTights.com, and finished the theatrical black ensemble with black platforms, Hollywood scarlet lips and piled up hair.

Embellished Tights are a really quick and easy way to add a touch of instant glamou

r to any old dresses – or try them for the office with cocktail shorts and floaty blouses. Gok chose this black version for a striking Black Swan-esque look, but why not try a pair of studded tights for a rock chick take on the look, or a shimmering lurex pair for added sparkle?

Or for a different way to wear statement tights, try a print.  Go for a more subtle black opaque on sheer design for work, but for the weekends and nights out you can afford to be much more daring.  Take a look at the range of Celeste Stein tights, which all feature fun prints on 40 denier opaque hosiery (so you won't get too cold, either!).  Some of our favourite designs are even in our amazing sale!

Christmas might be beginning to seem so long ago, but don’t let that stop you putting something luxuriously fun into your wardrobe for the new year.

Grazia tells you how to get SJP's style…

Where Sarah Jessica Parker leads, the rest will follow. So expect everyone to be wearing statement hosiery in the new year, following SJP stepping out in bright aqua tights last week in New York. Even Grazia magazine’s high end loving fashion editors have given the look their stamp of approval, and suggested various (in their words) “snazzy, party-worthy, Christmas-dinner-talking-point tights” to try.

Colour Pop
Grazia recommends working colour pop tights in purple, blue and red – we also advise trying bottle greens, which are much easier to pull off than you’d ever think. Check out the entire selection of coloured tights, or to get SJPs look, try the Jonathan Aston 40D Tights in Hyacinth or Velvet Green.

Prints
Animal print tights seem to be back season after season, so

amoxil

this is a safe bet to keep you looking current for ages, and will go with loads in your wardrobe. Or try cute heart print tights- so on trend this spring. We know most of your budgets won’t stretch to Grazia’s recommended Yves Saint Laurent version, but you can get your hands on a cute style for much cheaper, plus we’ve got lots of different styles so you can choose your favourite (or get them all to last you right through until Valentine’s day!)

Cosy
Fairisle tights and Tartan tights designs are also the perfect way to work fashion tights when it’s simply too cold for patterned sheers. Try the Pretty Polly Fairisle Backseam Tights for a twist on the look, or the Pamela Mann Fairisle Tights for a more classic take on the trend.

The Guardian Style Gurus Test our Favourite Tights!

Tis the season to be jolly… and very, very cold, unless you wrap your legs up in something toasty warm.  But what hosiery to go for to make sure you stay warm and comfy?  Enter the Guardian, who have conducted a tights test to find out which opaque tights are the best: for looks, comfort and durability.  So what did they think of some of our favourite hosiery?

Mary Portas/Charnos Opaque 40 ( pictured)

“Looks: Very Green.  These drew quite a few glances.  Perfect opacity, though: you could leave your legs unshaven for months and no one would know.

Comfort:  The closest feeling to support tights.  So tight, taking them off felt a little like a liberation.

Durability: Frighteningly good.  No snags.”

MyTights says: We LOVE Mary Portas hosiery.  It always seems to be of the highest quality, and it looks stunning, too.  Don’t worry if green isn’t quite your colour, as these tights come in 8 amazing shades.  As to the comfort, tights should generally feel snug – this will prevent sagging around your ankles.  But make sure you check the size guide for each product to prevent ordering a pair of tights in the wrong size!  We also recommend taking a look at the thicker option: the Mary Portas & Charnos Satin 80 Tights, which are a luxuriously thick 80 denier, and so perfect for wintery days!

le=”text-decoration: underline;”>Wolford Velvet Deluxe 66

“Looks: Revered among tights: classic matt black, as smart as tights can be.  So special you feel you should wear gloves to put them on.  In confidence terms, the closest hosiery gets to carrying a Chanel bag.

Comfort: Exceedingly Comfortable

Durability:  These were barely on when something sharp hidden in the stair carpet tugged at the underside of my foot and, horror, even before 8am, they were flawed.  The ladder didn’t travel far, though, and they held their own for the rest of the day.  Forgiven.”

MyTights says: High praise indeed, and not undeserved for a pair of tights that, although made by a top class brand, aren’t that expensive on a cost per wear basis (providing you don’t keep sharp things hidden in your carpets, we suppose).  Available in brown, navy and charcoal shades as well as classic black, so there’s a pair for every outfit.

Falke Ribbed Tights

“Looks: A nice woolly, subtly patterned rib: not outlandish, but a change from plain black.

Comfort:  I didn’t think about them all day: a good sign.

Durability: A less good sign: they snagged on the zip of my boots, making a hole.  Slightly stiff after a wash and, disappointingly, for all Falke’s reputation, emerged from the drum a bit bobbly.”

MyTights says: For Falke quality and wintery indulgence, we like the Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights.  To prevent wearing out during washing, wash by hand or on a cool wash in the washing machine in a hosiery bag.

Last Chance Christmas Shopping!

Perhaps you’re beginning to panic about getting all your gifts in time for the big day, or maybe you’re sitting smugly next to a pile of already-wrapped presents and just think you deserve a treat.  Whatever your level of preparation, we have lots of Christmassy delights in stock that you can still order in time for Christmas.  Read on to find out our top five festive essentials, or check out the entire Christmas Collection.

More magazine recommends the Celeste Stein Christmas Ornaments Tights, which are wacky enough to put a smile on the face of even the most miserly Scrooge.  They’re not just novelty tights exclusively for Christmas day, either- reduce the amount of leg on show by teaming with dresses and knee high boots and they’ll last you well into the year!  Also available in a glittery version for added festive sparkle.

The Charnos 75th anniversary collection makes the perfect present for mums, sisters and girlfriends – if you can stop yourself from unwrapping them for yourself, that is.  With a collection of three pairs of tights, two styles of hold ups and one stockings design, there’s lots of choice and they all come in adorable vintage style boxes, too.

For the man in your life, what could be more traditionally Christmas than the humble sock?  We’re turning it up a notch this year though – with luxury socks from Burlington and the Falke Silk Men’s Sock for pure indulgence for his feet.

For the perfect stocking filler or the ideal way to keep cosy while the weather finally catches up to the season, take a look at the super soft Falke Bedsocks, available in cream, pale pink and baby blue shades.  Perfect for snuggling up at home or to go under boots for snowball fights!

No Christmas is complete without its fair share of partying, so make sure you take a look at the range of party tights.  Bella Magazine recommends the Spanx Super Shaping Sheers as a festive fashion essential, too – after turkey and all the trimmings it might be time to invest in some shapewear so we can shimmy our way into our New Year’s Eve dresses!

The UK: Fashion Ambassador of the World (probably)

Let’s face it, with such stiff competition from the hot-shot New York designers and the classic European design houses, when Britain produces a designer as talented as Henry Holland, we want to shout about it.  And finally the US is starting to take notice, with several celebs spotted in Henry Holland tights and the US press going crazy for his quirky designs.

Seventeen magazine cited the magical outfit-enhancing properties of both the Henry Holland Superstar Tights and the Alphabet Tights (seen recently on Kourtney Kardashian!).  Not only are these eye-catching styles perfect for adding a fun twist to everything you already have in your wardrobe (meaning they are also budget friendly fashion, fyi), they also both come in twinkling versions – the Alphabets in silver and the Superstar in multi-coloured glitter, which are perfect for the festive season.

Star magazine, meanwhile, noted the dramatic entrance of our old favourite, suspender tights, and featured a “who wore it best” segment after Rihanna, Kimberly Wyatt and Jessie J were all pictured wearing the Super Suspender Tights.   They declared Rihanna as the star who rocked them the best, but we love Kimberley’s sequin and short tux combo – very, VERY chic.

And the New York Post used the Henry Holland Crochet Tights as part of a clashing prints fashion shoot.  The Crochet Tights, featuring a super-cute patchwork multi-coloured design, work for both day and night.  They sold out for a while but are now back in stock – so grab them while you still can!

In the fickle world of fashion, one thing is for certain: designer Henry Holland has arrived – and is here to stay.
