Laura?s Choice ? Stockings & Suspenders ? The sultry combination!

Effortlessly elegant and sultry, the stockings & suspender combination is a timeless one. Far more exciting than your regular sheers and hold ups, the super chic duo has fast become a treat for any lingerie drawer. Championed by the likes of Dita Von Teese and vintage hosiery experts What Katie Did, you?ll find that getting dressed in the morning has never been so much fun.

Stockings & Suspenders

But with the rise in popularity comes to need for more variety, making those decisions even trickier. As ever, I?ve narrowed down the best of the bunch to leave you with happy legs and fabulous lingerie collections…

As classic as they come…

If you?re going to commit to the look, a stash of great quality stockings is a must. For the utmost versatility, I recommend keeping things sheer, opting for a 15 denier pair that will work for both the office and then that party later on. From Oroblu, the Bas Lycia 15 Stockings are ideal, as they combined a 15 denier appearance with smooth, matte finish. Available in five shades (with a classic black and rich brown amongst others), these arrive with a plain top. But what to pair it with? Keep your look fuss free with the Jonathan Aston Suspender Belt, with four adjustable straps and a slight sheen finish.? What?s more, the belt arrives with a purse friendly price, proving that looking fabulous needn?t cost the earth.

Wrap up in style!

?Tis the season for unfriendly temperatures, but that doesn?t mean you have to give up your stockings & suspender habit. Making the world a better place (sort of), Levante have created the Plain Wool Stockings, for an even 100 denier appearance and cosy wool feel. Wonderfully warm, the matte stockings are great for everyday wear and are guaranteed to keep that chill at bay. The tops of your stockings are in keeping with the chic style and are free from any frills.To complete the look, I recommend the Maitresse Suspender Belt from What Katie Did. Vintage inspired and packed full of va va voom, the wide belt combines both satin & powermesh panels for a glamorous silhouette and instant spring in your step. With six metal tipped suspender clips to keep your stockings in place(instead of the usual four), the belt also comes with a handy hook & eye fastening for ease of wear. A must for those who adore seams, you?ll find that the additional clips will keep the design on the straight & narrow. When it comes to choosing your size, keep in mind that as the garment is vintage inspired ? the sizing is too. Running up a little smaller than your average highstreet brand, make sure to check the size guide before adding to your basket.

If you?re after something a little different, then the solution is netted. A fun option, the Fishnet Stockings from Levante will look gorgeous whether it?s work or play. Your fishnet stockings feature a fine-gauge net throughout, with small holes offering a glimpse of your pins when up close. Offering an even coverage from the toes to the tops, the lightweight stockings are ideal for warmer weather, making sure you stay refreshed no matter how long you?re in hosiery for. Those with never ending pins will be glad to know that the Tall/Extra Tall version will accommodate heights up to 6?1?.

And to go with them? From retro lingerie experts What Katie Did, the Narrow Maitresse Suspender belt is easier to wear with underwear than other styles, making it a must for those wanting to build up their lingerie drawer. ?With six metal tipped suspender clips to keep stockings straight & secure, the belt features both satin and powermesh panels to slim & trim in utter secrecy.

Gorgeous gifts…from you to you.

Whilst mixing and matching is fun, it?s always nice when it?s already done for you. Stocking & suspender belt sets will sit pretty in your drawers and wardrobes, and can be reserved for those extra special nights in. For a budget friendly gift that will go down a treat, I recommend that Seduction Set from Jonathan Aston. Combining a 15 denier seamed stocking with a chic belt, the all in one set takes the hard work out of looking good.

And from the purse friendly to the luxurious, the Amelie Stockings & Suspender Belt Kit from Oroblu is utterly gorgeous. Providing a readymade ?outfit?, the kit comes with opaque 40 denier stockings and a deep suspender belt. Decorated to resemble a corset, strips of tulle fabric overlap each on the front of the belt, for a fancy and feminine touch. With one strip featuring a lacy design and the others featuring a pretty polka dot print, this suspender belt is almost too beautiful to hide away!

Another option is to opt for one of our many strip panty styles ? all in one tights with the appearance of stockings, meaning you don?t have to worry about clips popping open or stockings becoming twisted throughout the day.? I especially love the Charnos Lace Boudoir Suspender Tights, which features a floral lace mock belt with classic, sheer 15 denier legs.

If you?re in possession of a healthy stocking supply but you?re after a new belt, then the Diamond Suspender Belt from Trasparenze is just the ticket. With a silky satin feel and look, the skirt style suspender belt features diamond shaped front panels and a frilly waistband for a dramatic look.

Until next time ladies…

Party Tights for the party season!

LBD? Tick. Vertiginous heels? Tick. Tights?…

As the party season fast approaches, it?s now the time to get that hosiery drawer in order. If you?ve any chance of keeping up with that social calendar, then outfit planning in advance is a must! No longer the afterthought, tights (and socks for those who can survive arctic temperatures) are an inexpensive and fashion forward way to add life to that weary LBD or unloved skirt. Ranging from the blingtastic to subtle shimmer, there?s a pair to complement every ensemble.

Disco DivaLurex Highball Tights

To make sure you dazzle on the dance floor, I recommend a hefty dose of glitter. Far easier to style than you may think, glitzy tights will instantly add fun to that understated outfit, and will give those everyday courts a mini-makeover. From Pamela Mann, the Lurex Highball Tights will do just that, with the extra special opaques letting you shimmer your way through the night. With a thick 80 denier appearance, the tights??positively shimmer,?courtesy of the lurex fabric used. Free from any brief, the all over glitter remains uninterrupted, leaving you free to wear any hemline that takes your fancy (ideal for those roller discos!).? If you want to show off your festive pedicure, then the footless version of these tights is a must with the Lurex Highball Footless Tights reaching ankle length.

Subtle Shimmer

If head to toe glitter isn?t your cup of tea, then why not take things down a notch with some subtle shimmer? A favourite for work parties and dinner dates, the demure look will take you from the office to the bar without the need to change in between. And given that that shimmer & shine are must have ingredients for the party season ahead, I couldn?t recommend the Starlight Tights more. From the Jonathan Aston Premium range, the 20 denier sheers have been made with a multi-coloured glitter yarn that shimmers and glitters when catching the lights. A personal favourite of mine and another addition to the Jonathan Aston range, the Starburst Tights are equally as elegant. From the knee outwards, small circular and flat discs scatter the legs of the tights, glimmering as though actual stars are decorating your tights. These look great when worn underneath a shift dress and heels, with metallic accessories providing even more glamour.

If you?re not ready to let go of your trusty black opaques, then the Lurex Spot Opaque Tights from Charnos are perfect for making the transition. Transforming the much loved polka dot print, small metallic spots appear throughout ? choose from gold or silver, both on a black opaque background. ?To dress up, step into killer heels, teaming your opaques with a brushed silk dress and an oversized glitter clutch for even more shimmer.

Queen of Quirky

For the occasions when understated just won?t suffice, may I point you in the direction of Henry Holland. Noted for his tongue in cheek style, the Alphabet Silver Tights from his Pretty Polly collaboration are the easy way to add designer cool to your outfit. The sheer 20 denier tights are decorated with sparkly silver letters that spell ?HOUSE? on one leg and ?HOLLAND? on the other. A true conversation starter if ever I had seen one, I love teaming mine with a festive red dress and heels.

The collaboration fun doesn?t stop there either, as Pretty Polly have teamed forces with designer of the moment, Joanne Hynes. Notorious for her playful use of colour and cut out shapes, the Optical Illusion Tights do not disappoint. The 60 denier opaques are decorated with a foxy glitter backseam whilst the top half of your tights is transformed with shimmering cut outs and large helping of postbox red. Coupled with a velvety soft feel and flat seams, it?s easy to see why no party outfit is complete without them!

Lovely & LuxuriousWolford Collier Tights

Given the amount of time we will spend on the dance floor, treating legs to a little luxury is imperative. Thankfully, Wolford agrees with this, and have made it easy to feel good and look great at the same time. Embracing the embellished trend in time for the festive season, the Collier Tights from the Austrian brand are a godsend. Made from a soft & smooth 60 denier, the tights boast an embellishment mock suspender design with a beautiful backseam to boot. Small silver diamante and larger silver flat discs have been carefully glued and arranged in a hanging chandelier design, with a singular row of small diamantes running down the back of your legs. If that doesn?t say luxury, I don?t know what does!

For true elegance this season, treat hosiery drawers to the Hoara Tights from Oroblu?. Delivering a 40 denier appearance, your lacy tights have been packed full of decorative delights. The overall look is a busy but beautiful one, with a mock fishnet bringing a contemporary sense to the traditional floral motifs. I love to style mine with a chic wrap dress and boots, keeping accessories to a minimum to let the tights steal the show.

Three cheers for the party season!

Until next time…

Laura

 

 

P.S Ladies, don?t forget to stock up on your emergency black opaques for when the party catches you by surprise!

Legs & Lycra? in Verona!

At the end of October, MyTights founder Laura attended the very special Lycra? Fibre MOVES event , held in the gorgeous city of Verona. Designed to bring together the movers & shakers in the hosiery world, the two day event offered precious insight into the future industry trends and the opportunity to celebrate all that is clever & creative in textile technology.

Lycra Legs!

The line up of speakers and guests read like the ?Who?s Who? of the hosiery world, with industry experts, buyers and managing directors all making an appearance. With the program packed full of thought provoking presentations and a fabulous catwalk (more on that later!), this was the perfect opportunity to glean insider knowledge.

Of course, we couldn?t keep the secrets all to ourselves, so Laura has let us in on her photos and behind the scene gossip from the night…

For a quirky and colourful touch, guests of the Gala dinner were greeted by a real life art installation, with moving legs showcasing just how durable and stretchy the Lycra? fibre is. A real talking point for any evening, it seems that this was just a hint of things to come!

Everyone knows that trends come and go, so it?s important to keep your finger firmly on the fashion pulse. After the champagne reception came a rather interesting catwalk presentation, with models putting the latest trends and textile advancements through their paces. From camouflage to colour blocking, the catwalk covered it all. What?s more, attendees were given insight into just how innovative hosiery will get in the next few years, with onus placed on the fit of your tights and the waistband.

Revolutionising the way we see waistbands, the FREEF!T waistband has been created, thanks to some ultra clever Lycra? technology.? Using your comfort as the driving force behind the creation, you?ll soon be able to experience the best waistband yet ? with not a red mark left behind. ?Special thanks was given to MyTights too, as some of our customers were given the chance to road test the waistband in the final stages of design, with the invaluable feedback helping to make positive changes.

The presentation was finished with an energetic dance performance ? a final flourish that perfectly captured the spirit of the evening: stylish, fun, and an exciting glimpse of things to come.

Katie Holmes on Good Morning America

katie-holmes-heartsThe lovely Katie Holmes was spotted in New York City on Wednesday as she made her way to promote her new makeup palette collaboration with Bobbi Brown on Good Morning America and her new haircare line in Sephora. The actress, looking youthful as ever, add a special twist to her look with some heart patterned tights. She used the tights to bring a little flirty edge to her effortlessly classy outfit. The shorts-and-tights trend has certainly got a hold of her, as she chose to wear her tights with some elegant black shorts. Of course the simple button down, classic black pointy heels??and super chic trench coat also added to her overall look. She managed to tone down the “girliness” of the heart tights whilst still letting them add a certain playfulness.

As Burberry Prosum predicted at their Autumn/Winter 13-14 runway show, heart print is clearly a top trend. The designer used the heart print to create more business-professional looks like that of Katie’s by pairing heart print handbags with their classic trench coats. The print was seen mixed with leopard prints as well, experimenting with the print-mixing trend, which I have seen a lot of lately!

You can recreate this look with the Pamela Mann Sheer Hearts Tights. These tights are so subtle they can easily be toned down, like Katie did, with some serious heels and a demure dress, played up with a flirty skirt and colourful flats, or mixed with other prints as Burberry did. The shorts-and-tights trend work great for these tights as well, and I would certainly wear them with some jean shorts and trainers for a cool, everyday kind of look.

The heart print trend is super easy to pull off and even easier to play around with, as Katie Holmes showed us with her effortless styling!

Henry Holland Reaching New Heights

And he surprises us again! For the grand opening of Leed’s new shopping centre, Trinity Leeds, Brit designer Henry Holland, one of our favourites, broke a Guinness World Record by designing the world’s longest dress. Known for his bold and outrageously innovative designs, there is no surprise that Henry Holland made an amazing dress 15 metres high – the equivalent of three double decker buses – not to mention 48- square metres wide. This lavish red and yellow polka dotted dress encrusted with thousands of Swarovski crystals was unveiled and emerged from a large box during the opening ceremony. The dress was made from layers of silk was inspired by insects and their wings.

hh-stripe-otk

This project enabled Henry Holland to deliver a spectacular show that would excite the new shoppers and launch the Trinity Leeds into the centre of the British fashion world. Holland said that it gave him the chance to celebrate fashion in a unique a way. And in Holland’s terms, unique is something entirely out of the ordinary – he makes his own category of unique. For the opening, the dressed was modelled by aerial acrobat and former Cirque Du Soleil principle artist, Collette Morrow. We wouldn’t expect anything else from a shopping centre opening featuring Henry Holland.

In all his creations, Henry Holland makes fashion more fun. From his own fashion line to his collaboration with Pretty Polly to make a line of absolutely fabulous tights that all the celebs are taking note of. Celebrities such as Rihanna, Little Mix, Paris Hilton, and the Kardashians rock out in the House of Holland tights. Like the rest of his style, Henry Holland designs innovative creations and makes tights that change the way we approach hosiery. He changes up the design of usual plain tights with fashion forward ones that add a bit of funk to your wardrobe.  One of his most popular looks is the mock suspender tights and this season he alters that style a little by

creating Stripe Over the Knee Tights (pictured). These tights have thick vertical lines that run up your lower legs that wraps around the top of your knees to complete the design. Always surprising us with amazing designs, Henry Holland is a fashion force we are glad to reckon with.

His cutting-edge collaboration with Pretty Polly is an affordable way to get a piece of Henry Holland’s fantastic designs. His fashion tights make an outrageous statement with any outfit, yet are completely comfortable to wear. Whoever said fashion was pain obviously hasn’t worn a pair of these tights.

By Royal Appointment…

So we think we can say its official. Sheer toe tights have been given the royal seal of approval and aren’t we pleased here in the office! Our favourite member of the family (not including the Queen after that magnificent skydive for the Opening Cer

cialis low price

emony), the Duchess of Cambridge has shown the world what side of the fence she’s on when it comes to the toes of her tights.

During her recent Royal

generic cialis

Tour of the Far East and South Pacific, Kate Middleton reminded us how useful a sheer toe can be in times of impromptu heel removals. Now we don’t want to do a disservice to the humble reinforced toe, they provide a multitude of tight-saving moments. However, Kate has shown us how elegant and undetectable a sheer toe can truly be.

We’re pretty sure no-one would have flinched if she removed her heels to reveal a reinforced toe, but it is the little details that make your tights so essential for everyday situations, from the ordinary to the unexpected. Sheer toes only add to the illusion of flawless legs with undetectable coverage. The idea behind the sheer toe is that the denier and stitching on them does not differ from the rest of your tights. Made for those of you who adore peep-toes and strappy sandals, revealing unsightly seams or a difference in denier is no longer a worry.
To achieve the Royal look, we recommend our Falke Shelina Tights. A firm favourite in the office, the Shelina Tights come in 8 shades, one for every skin tone. With a slight sheen finish, the hosiery has been celebrated by women everywhere as it provides coverage so convincing and flawless. And of course, it comes with the newly notorious sheer toe.

As mentioned earlier, it’s important not to overlook the benefits of a reinforced toe at the bottom of your tights. Possibly unsightly when compared to other toes but what it lacks in looks, it makes up for in durability. The denier and weave alter from the rest of foot making it visibly thicker than the rest of the tights. The reinforcement can be hidden away under closed toe shoes and heel which is simply perfect for everyday wear. For those of us that won’t be attend any Royal affairs in the next few months, make the most of hardwearing tights with a pair of Pretty Polly Nylons Tights. Available in a 9 colours, there’s no excuse not to invest in a pair of them!

So whatever toe team you’re on, follow by Royal example and make sure you plan it right to gracefully deal with any impromptu shoe removals this Autumn.

Mark Fast for Jonathan Aston

I was sooo excited when Henry Holland’s designs first appeared on the scene as he really seemed to have his dial tuned into the most current fashions. In fact, he was so on trend it was almost as if his tights had come first and

online canadian pharmacy viagra

designs for clothes a mere second. Well now there is a contender for the crown. Canadian knitwear designer Mark Fast who is a former St Martin’s student has built a reputation for fine body sculpting knitwear. So it seems a natural progressive for him to turn his attention from arms to legs, with a collection of Mark Fast tights and bodies. This is his first collection in conjunction with Jonathan Aston and the results are just fab.

Scramble

I can’t help thinking that there is more than a hint of Jessie J about the Fast at Jonathan Aston Scramble Long Sleeve Body. This very fine gauge body fits like a second skin and is screaming to be worn with tights alone. It is a bit of a showstopper and if it’s your intention to make it a complete outfit, it needs to be supported by a good pair of opaques or sheers. It’s available in three two tone colours, electric/aqua combining cool and warm blue, tangy/lipstick, a heady mix of red and orange and mercury/flint, a classic grey and black combo. I think this will be a sellout piece.

If a body is a stretch too far for you then you can take another approach with the Fast at Jonathan Aston Scramble Tights. Utilising the same lovely, lovely fine finish knit and the same on trend colour combinations, these are luxury autumn/winter  undergarments. I would combine these tights with plain but clashing colour, perhaps a knit dress or a tweed skirt and silk shirt.  For a look that’s more rock chick than Miss Marple, exchange the tights for Fast at Jonathan Aston Scramble Anklets. Perfect for teaming with heels, the black and grey colour combo will add an edgy element to any outfit. Nothing says change of season like texture and these pieces offer it all up beautifully.

Woollies

Scramble isn’t the only collection that Mark Fast and Jonathan Aston have come up with and Woollies is another design woven from opaque to sheer on a heavy weight knit in swathes of geometric pattern from the ankle to the gusset. Fast at Jonathan Aston Woollies Leggings and Fast at Jonathan Aston Woollies Tights are luxurious but wearable and a design that can take you from day to night.  This is a real future classic.

Honeycomb

You might think of honeycomb and think of bees, but Mark Fast has taken this well known design to new heights with a 21st Century interpretation. Fast at Jonathan Aston Honeycomb Anklets have an eye catching design that will make the plainest shoe proud. Graduating from toe to ankle, the start of the design is reminiscent of vintage spats. It evens out into a traditional honeycombe design all up the leg, in the Fast at Jonathan Aston Honeycomb Hold Up and Fast at Jonathan Aston Honeycomb Tights.  Available in black and grey, these ARE the new fishnets. Utterly wearable and very good looking.

Double Vision

Now I’ve seen some interesting designs translated into tights recently but Fast at Jonathan Aston Double Vision Piano Tights are something else. This is a digital, slightly out of focus keyboard that has been laid down on exceptional quality 20 denier tights to give the illusion of a piano running up the leg. Perfect for music aficionados out there. The electric blue is bang on trend and great for those who look for colour in life. Black is also available for those slightly more reserved souls amongst us.

White is also a big hitter for winter as we continue to embrace everything to do with the 60’s. Mark Fast’s final design for Jonathan Aston, Fast at Jonathan Aston Double Vision Stripes Tights is another mind bender. Sometimes I look at these and don’t see any stripes at all. At other times I look and see very prominent stripes. The reverse stripe, blush on blush and black on black create a real body conditioned silhouette and should definitely be a staple item in your wardrobe this winter.

Mix and match to combine great texture and subtle colour to great effect. As Mark Fast’s first collection, these items are for collectors, fashionistas and anyone whose wardrobe has one foot in the present and one foot in future. Browse the full Fast at Jonathan Aston collection now and let us know what you think!

Until next week……
