Oh Miley! How To Recreate Mileys Unorthodox Legwear Look

Queen of controversy, global pop sensation Miley Cyrus sure knows how to get people talking, doesn’t she? And it appears that any publicity is good publicity, as recent week have seen the Wrecking Ball singer taking the internet by storm with her new advert for Italian hosiery brand Golden Lady. Wearing next-to-nothing, the 21 year old danced to her new single Get It Right alongside a giant stuffed teddy bear (we don’t understand the link, either!), looking as if she was having a fabulous time in her pink sheer tights. However, as fans of Miley have come to expect, it’s never that straightforward, with the star then proceeding to rip the teddy bear into shreds, before a series of legwear changes and more, quite frankly odd, frolicking. Despite the strange concept, our eyes were of course drawn to her tights, and plenty of tights there were, with candy pink sheers, black sheers, and bright red opaques all taking centre stage!5th dec miley light pink

If you want to recreate Miley’s legwear look, a great starting point are the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights. As well as being available in vibrant fuschia, these 15 denier tights also come in 18 other shades – every colour of the rainbow! Or for a softer pink, the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights have a candy pink option, which is great when you want something a little more understated, yet retaining a flirty edge.

5th dec miley redA real capsule piece, every woman should own a pair of classic black sheers. Timeless and elegant, they’re a permanent fixture on the catwalk, and a firm favourite amongst numerous of our style crushes, namely Kate Middleton! While Miley’s look admittedly isn’t as polished as Kate’s, there’s no denying her black sheers looked great. To channel this look without breaking the bank, we love the Pretty Polly Nylons, with their 10 denier leg and super shiny finish – perfect for a glamorous evening look! Or if you want something a little more luxurious, opt for refined quality of the Wolford Individual 10 Tights – the epitome of elegance.

Last but not least, we loved Miley’s red opaque look. Coloured hosiery is a great way to jazz up a tired wardrobe favourite, and good news – MyTights has a fantastic selection of red tights to choose from. The pick of the bunch are the Falke Cotton Touch Tights, which are lined with cotton for super-snug pins. Or for something a little more affordable, head to everyday favourites Pamela Mann!

Hats off to you Miley!

Tights In The Freezer? We’re Not Convinced…

This week, doing our usual rounds of the Internet for hosiery related news, a MyTights team member stumbled across a blog that promised an end to the age old problem and constant source of frustration for women across the globe – laddered tights! That caught your attention, didn’t it? Ours too.

The blog confidently claimed that dampening your tights with water, squeezing out the excess and then FREEZING your tights before their first wear will ensure added durability and long-lasting value. Whilst we’re always open to new and innovative ideas to make our money go a little bit further, we can’t help but feel that this particular method is somewhat flawed. I mean, if this really did work, then why haven’t we heard about it sooner? And is it really necessary to go to such extreme (and cold!) lengths to keep our hosiery in good condition? We’re putting it out there, we’re not convinced. Maybe we’re biased, but why would we spend our evenings putting out tights in the freezer, when we can just take advantage of our wonderful range of hosiery care, instead!

Designed to keep your hosiery in tip-top condition and ensure you get to enjoy a stylish legwear look for seasons to come…

  • Wolford Hosiery Gloves – Perfect for protecting your tights against sharp jewellery or false nails as you’re taking them on and off, these ingenious gloves from luxury Austrian brand Wolford are available in three stylish colours. After Wolford Hoisery Glovesall, why shouldn’t you look chic even during the most mundane of activities?
  • Wolford Wash Bag –To avoid damage caused by bra straps, zips and embellishments in the washing machine, this chic wash bag will ensure your tights remain free from snags, tangles and fluff! Always wanting to offer extra style points, the bag also comes with a stylish rib design and appliqué rose detail. They really do think of everything!
  • Stoxbox – a favourite amongst the MyTights team (and for good reason), this clever creation will ensure you never waste any time rummaging through your drawer to find the tights you have in mind. Ideal for presenting your patterned hosiery, simply insert the Stoxbox into the leg of the tights, wrap the rest of the tights into the hollow background and voila! An extra five minutes in bed…

Beats putting them in your freezer, right? Be sure to also check out our range of brilliant ladder resist tights before you leave, too!

MARIO TESTINO FOR WOLFORD

Mario Testino – one of the most influential and leading photographers of our time, and even if you aren’t too familiar with the name you would’ve seen his portraits on front pages of high end magazines including Vogue and Vanity Fair (he was the man behind the camera when shooting what was said to be Princess Diana’s last major portrait session in 1997, 12 weeks before her death). So, who better to strengthen the emotional presence of the luxury  Wolford brand than Testino himself?!

The brand have turned up the heat this July with a sneak peek revealed of their new campaign, featuring model Caroline Winberg oozing sex appeal in stylish but provocative black and white photographs. The way Testino collaborates the product and the personality within these pictures creates an original and motivating theme for the refocus of Wolford.

So if one of the world’s most famous fashion photographers (whose persistence in shooting Gisele is credited to be an elevation to her high status today) is shooting exclusive hosiery and bodysuits which reflect the modern woman- why wouldn’t you want to join in and give yourself some instant glamour in the sensual hosiery?!

Here’s the exclusive selection Testino was papping this season and our recommendations on where to wear them in AW14…

MyTights Dazzles at Underlines Star Awards 2013

Last night a groomed, preened, and generally spruced up MyTights headed to the Underlines Star Awards 2013 – an industy event hosted by Underlines lingerie trade magazine, held this year at the super swish Cumberland hotel in London.  The night celebrates the best in the world of lingerie, hosiery and swimwear, and in the words of Underlines’ Managing Editor, the awards “were created in 2007 to recognise and reward entrepreneurial skill, innovation and experience in these specialised sectors. Particularly aimed at independent stores, the event highlights the resilience, competence and flair of retailers across the UK and Ireland.”

With top names like Figleaves, House of Fraser and Fenwicks all nominated for awards, and with 264 retailers and 24 brands represented, there’s no denying the competition was fierce.  But we should have known that when it comes to what makes MyTights really special (Team MyTights and our customers) we are the best in our field, and so it proved. From 380 nominations in total, MyTights was one of 11 winners – for Best Specialist Etailer – and runner up in the hosiery retailer of the year award, too (we weren’t too disappointed, though, as we lost out to Fenwicks, whose hosiery buyer Sue knows everything there is to know about tights).

Award

A super snazzy trophy was duly handed over by Paul Ross (brother of Jonathan, in case you were wondering) – the cherry on top of a fantastic evening which started with a champagne reception, continued with a fabulous four course meal and finished with wine, music and dancing. Needless to say, an amazing night was had by all (we heard a whisper that founder Laura didn’t get home until 2am)!

We are so proud to have won recognition from those who really know their stuff in the industy, and want to say a massive thank you to everyone at Underlines, to Invista for having us as their guests, and to Team MyTights for their dedication, talent and sheer hard graft. And of course to you, our customers. Without your passion for hosiery, honest feedback and unwavering loyalty none of this would be possible.

Oh, and in case you were wondering – Suzanne is wearing the Charnos Lurex Spot Opaque Tights in Black/Gold, and Laura the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights in Marine.

Iran: A New Viewpoint

MyTights founder Laura is one well travelled lady ? the stamps in her passport range from New York to Barbados and even Oman! ?Her latest expedition took her to Iran, where any preconceived ideas about the country and its people were soon turned on their head.? ?Everyone was so friendly and approachable?, she says.? ?And the country itself is simply fascinating ? such a rich history?.

And it goes without saying, an eye fine tuned over 13 years to spot tights at a hundred yards doesn?t let up just because you?re on holiday.? Armed with hundreds of photos of her time in Iran, the MyTights founder brought back copious evidence of eye catching legs in the Middle East.? With plenty of statement legwear on show, she even spotted a mullah (religious leader) apparently checking out the tights on display!

Iran-edited-1

And as for the women, they were worlds apart from the dark, chador-enshrined stereotypes we too often see in the media.? In fact Laura, who went the entire two weeks teaming slacks or jeans with her Falke socks, claimed she felt like a frump compared to most of the Iranian women she encountered.? ?Women are often seen out and about, headscarves pulled high off their face, which is sporting immaculate make up – and the latest trend is for brightly coloured, tights?footless tights?and leggings under tunics?, she explains. ?Markets and shops were bursting with colour and modern design – though you do have to adhere to a stricter dress code in more formal circumstances or in religious locations (check out Laura rocking a patterned Chador below!), and there is a big distinction made between what is appropriate in the outside world and what goes on behind closed doors. ?But it seems that by and large, Iranian women like to have fun with their fashion just as much as your average girl from the Western world.? After all, no matter what your religion, race or culture, fashion is a language we all have in common?

The verdict?? Laura says: ?the best holiday I?ve ever had?.? We say: Iran, you are our new style inspiration.

The quirkiest tights around this season by a mile, the Bricking It Tights by Pretty Polly & Patternity are an office favourite! Far easier to style than you may have thought intially, the graphic tights are just one of the capsule range by the collaboration. Take note from Laura and wear yours with block colours and a statement necklace.

Hannah

This season is still about all things spotty, so Hannah makes the most of this trend by letting her polka dot tights add charm to a sweet dress & jumper combo.
