Trasparenze Cinzia Knee Highs, as worn by Jade from Little Mix!

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that hosiery is seriously on trend at the moment. In fact, it’s so popular that rarely a day goes by where we’re not approached by the press for samples, whether for cover shoots, editorials or music videos. A while back, we were contacted by a stylist for Little Mix who was charged with shooting their video for much anticipated new single Black Magic. Always happy to help, we sent over a number of samples, and were thrilled to find out that one of our products was to be used in the video!

Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks

Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks

Posted on their official VEVO page this morning, the video sees the foursome try their hand at acting, beginning as geeky schoolgirls before being transformed into fashion-forward vixens, and it’s all thanks to, you guessed it… black magic! Music and wizardry aside, what stood out for us most were their fashion choices, in particular Jade, who was wearing the very pair of Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks we sent across all those months back. Opting for a sparkly red jumper, monochrome mini skirt and black heels, we may be biased, but we thought her flirty knee highs made for the perfect outfit accessory.

And it couldn’t be easier to mirror her look! Available in white à la Jade as well as 18 other shades, the Cinzia Knee Highs are ideal for this time of year, looking great whether teamed with 60’s style miniskirts, skater dresses or denim shorts. Most importantly, they come in at just £5.25 a pair – the most affordable celebrity style to date!

We have a feeling we’re going to be hearing an awful lot of this song in months to come…

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

 While the weather might be feeling a little Jekyll and Hyde of late, with next week comes the beginning of June, which means one thing – its summer! Finally, it’s time to relegate your opaques to the back of the drawer, stock up on the suncream and bask in the rays of summer heatwaves (we hope!) The key to owning a summer wardrobe to be proud of lies in stocking up on staple items that will ensure you always have something suitable for the occasion. Whether for sun-soaked holidays, garden parties or the obligatory Saturday afternoon BBQ, MyTights are on hand to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch!

 

 

Staple: Floral

Where: Garden parties, BBQs, nights out

Often considered to be the epitome of a summer style, floral prints are as big as ever this season, but MyTights being MyTights, we have everything you could possibly need. For a classic floral print, check out the Oroblu Elaine Tights, with a lace-like floral effect running across a tulle base. Or for something a little more quirky, you’ll adore the Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights, with a striking side seam made up of brightly coloured floral motifs.

Bad Blood, Great Style

Taylor Swift - Wolford Stella Tights

Taylor in her Stella Tights

She’s only gone and done it again! Of course, we’re referring to Taylor Swift, or as we like to call her, ‘the best dressed legs in showbiz’, who this week premiered the new video for her latest single Bad Blood. Not only music to our ears but for our eyes too, the video was packed full of A-list faces, visual effects and most importantly, Wolford hosiery! The luxury Austrian brand clearly holds a special place in Taylor’s heart, choosing not one but two styles from their fabulous collection. In typical MyTights fashion, we have everything you need to recreate the look, stocking both of the styles worn in the video. So while you might not have her millions in the bank, her musical talent or celebrity friends, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the same legwear look as Swifty herself…

 

Wolford Stella Tights

Geometric prints are everywhere at the moment, but if you needed any more excuses to try out the trend, follow Taylor’s lead and opt for the Wolford Stella Tights. These 20 denier sheers have a striking graphic side seam that runs up the leg and culminates in a chic sewn in band at stay up height. While Taylor glams hers up with a black mini, there’s no reason why they can’t be dressed down for the daytime, too. All you need is a pair of denim shorts and white long sleeved tee and you have a look that any pop princess would be proud of!

 

Taylor Swift - Wolford Individual 10 Stockings

And in the Individual 10 Stockings!

 

Not to be outdone, Taylor can also be spotted in the Wolford Individual 10 Stockings, which she paired with heeled boots and a skirt with a risqué front split. Packed full of the luxury features that Wolford customers are accustomed to, these silky soft stockings come with 6.5cm plain tops that gently hug your thighs without even a hint of pinching. Perfect with just about anything in your wardrobe and for any occasion, if they’re good enough for Taylor…

We don’t think it’ll be too long before Taylor’s hosiery is making the headlines again, so watch this space…

Bye Dave! Tina Fey flashes Spanx

Tina Fey has never been one to blend into the crowd, has she? The Mean Girls actress certainly isn’t afraid to get people talking, and that’s exactly what she did this week when appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman. Declaring her love for the popular chat show host, the actress quite literally gave him the dress off her back, unzipping her blue dress to commemorate his last ever episode in the hotseat. Revealing a hilarious bodice with ‘Bye Dave’ emblazoned across the front, her Spanx shaping suit was visible for all to see!

Tina Fey

Tina Fey

We love it when celebrities are open about wearing Spanx; after all, who doesn’t need a little shaping support from time to time? It’s reassuring to know that even high-profile celebrities like Fey turn to Spanx when they need a little help getting into a dress, and with the wedding season in full swing, we thought we’d round up our favourite shape to ensure you look fabulous in your new summer dresses.

Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body

Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body

If you crave some all over shaping support à la Fey, opt for the Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body. A new addition to the Spanx range, this super slimming bodysuit uses seamless zones for the most discreet and comfortable fit yet, banishing your wobbly bits and coming without any material at the bust, meaning you can wear your own bra. If it’s just your tummy that needs a little taming, have a look at the Spanx Higher Power – New & Slimproved. The name speaks for itself, with these strong control panties using amped up tummy panels to flatten your midriff in secrecy.

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Is your derriere in need of a boost? We love the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘buttlets’ to slot into your rear to give you a rear that even Kim Kardashian would envy. If your hips are your problem zone, take a look at the Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short, again utilizing seamless sections to ensure long-lasting comfort. Smoothing over your tummy and hip area, these shaping shorts also come with a 360° seamless waistband for a light as a feather feel.

Whatever your insecurity, Spanx has something to suit. Tina Fey, we salute you!

Festival Fashion: Our Top Picks

Ankle Socks

Ankle Socks

Boho bangles and flower crowns… it could only mean one thing… it’s festival season! We all know if there’s ever a time to overload on accessories, it’s now. In fact, to really capture the bohemian festival look, accessories are a must, and what better way than with hosiery?

Should the sun have his hat on, we definitely know that less is more. For this reason, ankle socks can add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit and nail the ever popular layered look. Try a classic solid pair of Trasparenze Marta 70D Ankle Highs to peak out the tops of your ballet pumps and combat boots. Matched with a patterned pair of high-waisted shorts, you’ll stay cool and refreshed and look gorgeous to boot. We especially love the brighter shades for getting us in the festival spirit.

Kendal Jenner shows us that festivals are all about

 being bold with patterns. Though we’re aware that most of us can’t pull off high-waisted flares, we do know how to pull off prints. The Oroblu Butterfly Leggings for instance offer a mix of blue and cream colours with butterfly motifs. Making a statement while listening to your favourite bands – sounds like a pretty good day to us!

 

Two piece outfits have been all the rage of late and lucky for us, they’re perfect festival attire. To dress this look up the MyTights way, pair with cosy over the knee socks and slip on plimsoles. The Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks come in a wide range of colours to complement your co-ord to perfection.

Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups

Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups

The most important ingredient to a festival you ask? That’s right, glitter. Whether you sparkle with rhinestone jewels or get painted in gold henna, glitter is a must. To add more to your outfit, check out our glitter and shine range. Try the semi opaque Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups for a hint of metallic glow that lines the back of each leg in floral print. Teamed with decorative body paint, there’ll be no stopping you from strealing the festival fashion crown.

You might be sleeping in a tent and odds are you haven’t showered for three days, but hosiery is always on hand to keep you looking fabulous!

Have a fantastic time, ladies.

Who wore it best: Black Opaques…

One’s an-all singing, all-dancing star of Glee and the other will forever be known as Rachel from Friends, but Dianna Agron and Jennifer Aniston seem to have one thing in common – their love of opaque tights! While summer did make a brief appearance in the last couple of weeks, we’re currently in the midst of a rainy midweek, meaning you have unfinished business with those trusty opaques. Having both been papped in the wardrobe staple this week, we took it upon ourselves to test their style credentials and put them head to head in the ultimate battle. Black opaque tights – who wore them best?

Dianna Agron

Dianna Agron

 

Beginning with the lovely Dianna, most well known for her role as Quinn from Glee, she’s now trying her hand on stage, and has recently landed a top role in London’s famed West End, Good for you! Promoting her new role in a play about late fashion designer Alexander McQueen, Agron appeared on The Paul O’ Grady Show in a fabulous ensemble. Layering a high neck black sweater and thick black opaques beneath a sparkly skater dress, she completed her preppy look with a pair of black Chelsea boots. Oh, how we adore this look! It’s cute, it’s stylish and it shows us all how versatile black opaques can be, it’s going to take some beating. Over to you Rachel…we mean Jennifer!

Jennifer Aniston

Jennifer Aniston

 

 Sporting an off-duty look after watching a Broadway show, the Friends star was another opting to wrap up warm. Wearing a roll neck jumper dress with knee high boots and her favourite black opaques, we think Jen looked great. We do however think that Dianna’s look had that little extra oomph, so this round goes to Agron!

Feeling inspired? Check out our whole range of black opaques before you head off! Or if you prefer something a little more lightweight for this time of year, peruse our semi-opaque range, too!

Chic and figure-hugging – it can only be Wolford bodies!

Kim Kardashian

Kim Kardashian

We all know and love Wolford’s large selection of hosiery, but did you know they also make the most fabulous bodies? In fact, a host of celebrities have been popping up all over sporting the styles, and it’s easy to see why. With the weather warming up, these products are perfect for creating a simple and polished look, whether layering beneath close fitting outfits or as an outfit accessory in their own right. Although these bodies don’t come cheap, we’re of the opinion that they’re worth every penny. A timeless (not to mention versatile) addition to your wardrobe, they’ll stand the test of time and are unmistakably Wolford.

Daisy Lowe

Daisy Lowe

Kim Kardashian has always been a fan of figure hugging fashion, so it came as no surprise to us to see her in the Wolford Colorado String Body. Not only comfortable but versatile too, you can dress this up with a pencil skirt and heels or dress it down with jeans and a leather jacket depending on the event. The lack of seams also ensures a wonderfully smooth silhouette, just like Kim K herself.

Another celebrity trying out the trend is supermodel Daisy Lowe, who layered a simple black body beneath an eye catching sheer lace skirt. In our eyes, you can never go wrong with an all-black ensemble, so recreating this look is a must. Luckily, we have just the thing with the Wolford Berlin Body, finishing off the look with the Wolford Velvet De Luxe 50 Tights.

Miley CyrusNot always known for her chic sartorial choices, Miley Cyrus has also been known to sport a Wolford body. Albeit on a photoshoot, the Wrecking Ball singer styled the Wolford Jamaika String Body with some patchwork denim and heels for a casual yet trendy look. Okay, so we might not wear the jeans ourselves, but the body is seriously stylish. For us, you can’t go wrong with a pair of black high waisted denim shorts and heeled boots.

 Intrigued? Check out our entire selection of Wolford bodies before you leave!

In potentially a radio first, an interview with pop sensation Conor Maynard lead to a discussion about none other than ladder resist tights!
