Diamonds are a girl’s best friend…

We love patterned tights! There, we said it. Patterns make it really easy to add depth to your outfit with their intricate patterns and designs.  We’ve selected a few of our favourites at the moment and here is how we wear them…

Diamond print is bold and classic, and the Charnos Diamond Stripe Tights pattern is quite visible.  For this reason, it is important to maintain uniformity with your clothing so as to not overwhelm the outfit. A single colour skirt or shorts will add the coverage you need without distracting from the diamond pattern.  Keep your shoes simple to maintain the focus on your legs.

These Pretty Polly Chevron Cable Tights add more coverage so we like to save them for foggy and rainy days.  Pair them with a white lacy dress or an eyelet skirt to keep some summer flair in your outfit.  If you want to add colour to your outfit, a colourful, lightweight scarf or bright jewellery will do the trick without confusing the ensemble.

While the Charnos Diamond Net Tights are not artwork tights, they have a  fine design that reminds me of an artist’s careful hand.  However, this pattern is what makes it so versatile for the winter and summer months.  Try pairing a pastel coloured dress with them and simple flats for a spring outfit on a cooler day.  For a bolder look, a bright coral t-shirt dress would be perfect for a summer night out.

However you choose to wear your diamond and chevron patterned leg-wear, be sure to leave a comment telling us how you did!

Paisley print problems… Sorted!

There is nothing I enjoy more than finding a new, wacky print to add to my ever-growing collection but I often find myself struggling on how to style them. Luckily for you, after much trial and improvement on how to work this look flawlessly I am now here to spread the news. You too will be able to achieve a day to night wardrobe sensation (you’re welcome).

At the moment I am particularly taken with the Pamela Mann Paisley Net Tights because with the correct outfit they can be worn in the office or out on the town. What more could you want?!

Although these tights are black don’t be fooled into thinking that black can only be worn in the evenings. Get your office look in line by teaming these with a pastel skater skirt (we are loving turquoise/blue/teal this season) and a black button down blouse. Splashes of colour keep the tights day time appropriate but also classy enough to wear to your next meeting. Keep your footwear simple with some black pumps that don’t distract from the pattern, see our Polyvore account for more great ideas!!

To take these tights into the night it is important that you keep the rest of your outfit pattern and print free to avoid clashing or overdoing it. Less is definitely more on this occasion! We decided that these paisley lace tights look absolutely gorgeous teamed with a black panelled skater dress and black heels to accentuate those gorgeous legs. The flowing hemlines of a skater dress will ensure there is enough femininity to this jet black montage. We recommend keeping your makeup fairly natural as the paisley print is enough of a statement and the all black outfit should be kept clean and simple.

Last but certainly not least is how to style these for a casual day time look, somewhere between office appropriate and evening wear. I think these paisley tights look really stylish with a gray skater skirt and a crop top with a simple coloured jacket. This look is casual and due to the colours all being simple/pastels/ nothing too outrageous or bright, it still has the spotlight on the paisley tights.

I hope this has helped you take one pair of tights to new heights and lots of different looks! Comment below on how you would wear these paisley print tights.

Artwork Tights

Any kind of legwear that is not all one colour can be difficult to style.  However, artwork tights definitely take the cake.  These are fun but daring, and you have to own them to make them work.  I’ve always been one to stick well within my fashion comfort zone but this trend is too fun to pass up. Here are a few prints we have been loving to style.

First up, we have the Pamela Mann Comic Strip Tights.  The bright comic book strip print is perfect for Halloween. I’m kidding, kind of.  These tights are laid back and can be paired a simple black skirt to ensure that the focus will be on your  legs.  They are perfect for casual Friday at work or an afternoon strolling around the city.

If your style is out of this world, you might want to try the Pamela Mann Galactic Sky Printed Tights.  Galaxy prints have been very in this past year and they are easy to wear with a long black tunic and plain Vans or Converse.  To dress up the look, wedge lace up booties will add just enough glam without looking out of place.

Rock and Roll is always in style, and we have got the perfect pair to for to show off your love for it.  Pamela Mann’s Skull & Roses Tights are the perfect combination of girly flair and tough rocker chick.  Pair them with black leather shorts for a fun night out and keep the party rocking.

For more artwork tights, be sure to check out MyTights.com. We have you covered… to infinity and beyond.

Festival Fashion 2014

pamela-mann-floral-tattoo-tightsWith festival season fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about the newest festival trends (who are we kidding; it’s been on our mind for ages). Whatever the weather, tights or knee high socks are a festival essential!

Maybe you fancy teaming some cute shorts with wellies and a pair of simple Charnos Black Tights which are also ladder resistant  *sigh of relief*. Or perhaps you’re more of a skirt and patterned tights kind of girl? These Charnos Stripe Mesh Tights could be the ones for you . Festivals may not be the most glamorous occasions, but that isn’t an excuse to give up looking fabulous and these Pamela Mann Floral Tattoo Tights are the perfect way to bring back a touch of luxury at even the muddiest, grubbiest festivals!

We are all well aware that British weather is incredibly temperamental; we sit and pray for sunshine throughout the festival period often to have our hopes dashed as we stand drenched in a field, up to our knees in mud. With optimism in our hearts it will be too hot for tights and knee high socks are the perfect alternative! A new, super cute option of Hello Kitty Welly Socks are perfect for avoiding those oh so painful welly blisters that we have pretty much all experienced at some point.

Maybe we will be unlucky with the weather and have our sunny aspirations crushed by a big fat rain cloud, in this case every girl will need a pair of Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings teamed with a crop top (and a rain jacket most likely!) This look has made a huge comeback with celebrities like Cara Delevingne and Taylor Momsen showing ladies all over the globe how to wear it. Everyone can rock it. Other legging options that are also festival perfection are these Transparenze City Leggings which would look great with a baggy T-shirt for that ‘chilled chic’ look everyone aspires to gain at a festival.

Finally, for those who are going to brave the weather and wear something more leg-baring than wellies a glittery pair of Jonathan Aston Lurex Ankle Socks could be just what you need to put a spring in your step.

We will keep our fingers and toes crossed for good weather…

Rock your Interview, in Style

When you are going to an interview, the last thing you want to do is lose yourself in a boring outfit. The purpose of an interview is for the employer to get a glimpse of who YOU are and your ensemble is the perfect way to show them that! We can’t think of a better way to look professional and stylish than with a trendy pair of tights! MyTights has loads of options for every type of style that will help you feel confident and nail that interview.oroblu-jillian-patterned-tights

Preppy

If you have a preppy style, then you are already know how to dress a bit more conservatively, which is perfect for interviews! You can use your classy style to your advantage by wearing a pencil skirt with a blazer or even a modest cut dress. However, don’t forget to add the finishing touches with the Wolford Rice Dot Tights to add a bit of texture to your simple look, a neutral or even lightly coloured pair of Jonathan Aston 40d Opaque Tights for a finished look, or you can also really impress the interviewer with the Oroblu Jillian Tights.

Edgy

With an edgy style, you are adventurous and stand out with your wardrobe, however, make sure that you still look professional. The best way to do this would be by wearing a blazer or even a pencil skirt and adding a fun pair of tights. The Pretty Polly Layered Honeycomb Tights add a unique touch to your ensemble and would even look great with a patterned chiffon shirt underneath a blazer for a contrasting patterned look. Also the Pamela Mann Baroque Tulle Tights and Jonathan Aston Tienga Tights are very unique and guarantee that you will stand out, but remember to pair with them with professional attire.

Glam

Every glam girl loves to accessorize and a pair of alluring tights are the perfect accessory for an interview. You already know how to make an accessory look fabulous, but remember it’s an interview so don’t go overboard. The Jonathon Aston Mimi tights and the Pamela Mann Linked Leaf Lace Tights are the perfect combination of funky and classy. The Jonathan Aston Stardust Tights are also a great option because they will add the perfect amount of sparkle to your interview and would complement a sparkly statement necklace!

wolford-mimi-tightsGirly

Femininity is your specialty, so adding a pair of tights to your wardrobe probably isn’t a new concept. However, you can enhance your style by adding a simple floral element to your interview with the Wolford Mimi Tights or a lace floral texture with the Jonathan Aston Rosy Tights. Also, no girly girl can resist a pair of black polka dot tights, and the Moulin Rouge Dot Tights are just that and look great with just about anything.

No matter your style, MyTights has loads of tights that will help you make a first impression that says “hire me” at your interview—but don’t forget to prepare for the questions too!

A MyTights Experience: London Fashion Weekend

In January, I abandoned my home in freezing cold Minnesota—located in the United States—and travelled to a fast-paced city consumed with fashion. In a little over two months, London has made me obsessed with staying updated on popular and upcoming styles. This was especially apparent after London Fashion Week.  I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a designer and a trend catwalk and interning at MyTights has possessed me to find tights to accompany these upcoming trends!

pink-floral-tightsDuring the designer catwalk show, I watched Maria Grachvogel’s garments float down the runway. They were very feminine, made with chiffon and consumed with bold neutrals (especially brown) and pastel colours. The dresses and tops were also a bit oversized and flowy, which actually accentuated femininity.  I think that the Wolford Sheer 15 Tights would correspond perfectly with chiffon and flowy garments because they are very fine and mimic the sheer look of chiffon.

I also attended a trend catwalk. In this show, there were three specific trends that were highlighted for the spring and summer season. I’ll give you a hint- they were titled “Flower Power”, “Good Sport” and “Precious Metals”.

The first trend “Flower Power” featured—you guessed it—big and bold flowers. Pamela Mann Ditsy Pink Floral Tights are patterned with floral and summer colours.  The Jonathan Aston Poppy Hold Ups and Jonathan Aston Rosy Tights (I would recommend the nude ones) are also bold, but create a twist on this upcoming trend with the flowers embedded into them.stardust-glitter-seams

The second trend, “Good Sport”, was inspired by sports and athletics. The colours included vibrant orange, red, white and blue, and the designs  used geometric shapes and were paired with tennis shoes. The Charnos Stripe Mesh Tights subtly mimic the look of a referee’s shirt, which can carry-on the sporty look with any garment, but especially an athletically enthused one.

The last trend, “Precious Metals”, included metallic pleats—especially gold. The Trasparenze Charter Hold Ups and the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Tights will help you shimmer into the summer trend. The Jonathan Aston Stardust Tights also add a hint of this trend in the seam without being consumed by it, which is a great way to include this trend into your wardrobe for daytime.

I can’t wait to whip out my trendy tights this summer and I hope sharing my experience will help you embark on a summer full of fashion!

Our Top Picks – January 2014

pamela-mann-bunny-ear-suspender-tights

It might be a brand new year, but some things never change – and it’s that time of the month again, when we carefully select our top three products for those of you who maybe aren’t quite sure what you’re after, or are looking for a little inspiration….

1)      Pamela Mann Bunny Ear Overknee Tights

Why? You only have to look at these adorable rabbit detail suspender tights to know why they’ve made the top three this month.  If you’re still not sure, we can’t help you.

Style With: A thigh skimming playsuit to make the most of the striking detail – make it work for day by adding wedge booties and a slouchy cardie.

Wear To: Parties – they’re a great conversation starter – plus what better way to make sure all eyes are on you as soon as you enter the room?

How Much? £9.99/$16.50/€12,00

wolford-merino-tights2)      Wolford Merino Tights

Why?  If you’ve treated yourself to the bunny ears option, chances are you’ll have pennies to spare.  Investing in the basics has always been our mantra, and it doesn’t get more classic than these luxury wool tights.  Made with an impressive 50% virgin merino wool, forget stocks and shares – these are the smartest investment you’ll make this winter.

Style With:  A versatile matte finish and classic Wolford design mean these will go with pretty much anything – why not try corduroy shorts, ankle boots and a wax jacket for that chic farmer feel?

Wear To: Anywhere you’re likely to get cold – whether it’s a walk in the park or a frosty commute, these simply won’t allow the cold to venture too close.

How Much? £32.99 (available UK only)

moulin-rouge-high-heels-dotty-tights3)      Moulin Rouge High Heels Dotty Tights

Why?  We’ve always loved these back seam, polka dot sheers, but since we spotted Beyoncé rocking a replica at the Grammys while performing with hubbie Jay-Z, we’re OBSESSED with them.  The perfect blend of ladylike chic and fashion forward pizazz, AND an A List seal of approval – what’s not to like love?

Style With: A few more clothes than Beyoncé wore – try a skater dress with sheer or lace panels to keep an edge of sexiness, and skyscraper stilettos to continue the line of the seam and make your legs appear endless.

Wear To:  The office, if your dress code isn’t too strict – these will look great with a pencil skirt, too!

How Much? £12.00/$19.50/€14,50

5 Styles For Spring

wolford-eyla-stay-upsIt?s never too early to embrace the SS14 trends, so here are our tips for which tights will go best with the upcoming styles.

Dark Florals
Blooms are booming next season, and this time think sophisticated big floral prints on a dark background. Team a floral dress with black opaques for a classic and flattering look. These stunning Ultra Fit 80D High Waisted Shaper Tights by Calvin Klein render that expensive January gym membership unnecessary. Providing the best of both world, these gorgeous opaques give you an enviable silhouette and still feel comfortable thanks to the soft microfiber yarn.

Sport Luxe
Wolford can do no wrong in our eyes, consistently giving classic staples a fresh and elegant update. This time they’ve worked their magic on their Eyla stay ups, adding a sexy scarlet trim to the tops. The high quality yarn and reinforced toes ensures that these sheers will outlast this glam trend. Match these hold ups in Sahara/Red with a bomber jacket or a slogan sweatshirt and a white mini skirt or shorts.

pamela-mann-art-deco-net-tightsFashion Meets Art

Many designers have been looking to the art world for inspiration this season. If you want to attain this cultured look why not pair a LBD with these Pamela Mann Deco Net Tights. Featuring a range of intricate patterns including diagonal lines, semi circles and diamonds, this hosiery could hush even the harshest art critic.

Pleats
Pleats are popular again. Style your on-trend kilt with classic white wool for a look that screams highland chic, and cream woolen tights just don?t come classier than Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights. These thick opaque tights aren?t just fashionable but functional thanks to the insulating wool content. Even if the weather doesn?t warm up until September 2014, your pins will stay snug and pampered.

Pink Blush
Pastel pink is one of the hot shades for next season. Embracing this look couldn’t be easier with Jonathan Aston?s 40D Opaque Tights, available in the perfect shade of Candy Pink. If this cotton candy colour is too sickly sweet for you then don?t worry because red and electric blue are also tipped to be big. Yes, you guessed it, Jonathan Aston has terrific tights in these shades too.
