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

download buy snow leopard

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.

MyTights & Dune: A Match Made in Heaven

With the weather already into the seemingly irreversible decline of autumn once more, it?s time to pack away our flip flops, relinquish the sunnies and wave goodbye to bare legs.? Which made us sad ? for about a minute, until we remembered that this means we can dig out last year?s cape, dust off the hosiery drawer and treat ourselves to a new pair of boots, safe in the knowledge we can dress up such purchases as a necessity rather than a frivolous indulgence.? Yippee!

Not only does the re-emergence of tights as our wardrobe staple mean we can stop faffing with fake tan and maintaining a meticulous round-the-clock hair removal regime, they permit us to continue rocking our summer dresses for weeks to come without fear of overexposure, PLUS they?re the best team mate for our pending new boots.

The ladies at Dune are with us, it seems, as their latest video pairs their essential AW13 boots collection with MyTights hosiery ? so whatever your style, there?s a boot-and-tights combo designed for you?

Our Top Picks: July (Heatwave Special!)

Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Hold Ups Each month we pick our top three products, and tell you why.  This week, we’ve been finding ways to stay cool in the heat…

1)   Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Hold Ups

Why?  Available in 7 shades, these supposedly “basic” hold ups come equipped to suit any skintone.  One of the best value for money hold up styles we stock, these top quality hold ups from Italian brand Oroblu feature a pretty lace top and luxurious feel – but the price means they’re for everyday, not just special occasions.  Hold ups are ideal if the office requires you to wear hosiery but the weather means you just can’t face tights – and these are a perfect place to start your collection.

Wear to: the office

Style With: pencil skirts and chiffon blouses, finished with killer heels.  Don’t go too short with your skirt, as the tops might peek out when you sit down – not very office appropriate!

How much? £9.95 / €10,20 / $16.50

Inspiration: Anyone for Tennis?

After enduring yesterday what was, quite frankly, the most nail biting three hours and 27 minutes of Wimbledon so far, with Murray almost falling at the hands of Verdasco and being forced into a heroic comeback from 2 sets down, we SO hope we’re not tempting fate by writing this.  But there’s no denying that the Championships have proven themselves to be a hotbed of fashion inspiration for us here at MyTights, with celebs such as Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael and Pippa Middleton already spotted throughout week 1 (not to mention Kim Sears, Andy’s always-chic girlfriend of 7 years) – and tons more famous faces expected over the next couple of days.  And we quite simply wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t share with you the fashion inspiration we’ve gained from Wimbledon 2013 (we’re sure that checking the scores every 2 minutes also contributes, in its own way).  So whether you take inspiration from the Wimbledon Whites on show or go red, white and blue to show your support for the man who’s brought joy to so many British hearts, we’ve got everything you need to look tennis-tastic this summer…
