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.

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

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.
