So far this week, we’ve brought you the MyTights Hosiery Awards, with our nominees winning… well, nothing actually. Never mind. We’ve already seen Mary Portas pip shapewear giant Spanx to the post for best brand, and all other trends bow down to the mighty suspender tights as the winner of Trend of the Year.
We also saw Kate Middleton unexpectedly take the crown for Trendsetter of the Year, thanks to her love of sheer tights, and teen-brat Taylor Momsen take the trophy for Mess of the Year. So it’s finally time for the big one: who will be our hosiery icon of the year?
HOSIERY ICON OF THE YEAR
Winner: Jessie J
Honourable Mention: Fearne Cotton
Maybe it was obvious, but we don’t care. Named as the new face of Pretty Polly, exploding onto the music scene and making everyone fall in love with her were just three of a hundred achievements. And she did it all wearing some ama
zing hosiery – to get her look, all you need to do is check out the Henry Holland collection… We can’t wait to see what the next year will bring for the Essex girl.
A worthy runner up, Fearne Cotton turned up at the last moment last week after taking a hiatus from her amazing tights collection. The DJ and presenter’s love for quirky fashion extends to her weird and wonderful choice of tights, from lace to prints and everything in between with nothing off limits – our kind of girl!
So that’s it for another year! Here’s to the next twelve months of hosiery, and may we wish all of our customers a very happy new year.
