moulin-rouge-metallic-seam_1This season let your accessories do the work for you and stay on trend easily with these handy tips…

 

White Tights

Recently spotted on Suki Waterhouse, white tights aren’t for the faint-hearted, but when done correctly they look divine. For a splash of celeb style, follow Suki’s example and wear them with a pale pastel pink dress and platform sandals to get in on that “socks and sandals” trend. We recommend matching your pastel pieces with the Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights made from 70% wool and available in Bianco Lana, as these wool tights are both cosy and chic. For a purse-friendly version then plump for the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights available in a huge range of colours including white. Curvy ladies will love the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Plus Size Tights designed especially for voluptuous figures. Now we can confirm that it’s official: white tights are not just for children but essential for nailing that pastel trend.

 

Metallic

It’s time to unleash your inner magpie and indulge in some serious glitter. Metallic tights and socks are the perfect way to embrace this trend without suffering from ‘shiny overload’. Get a sultry leg lengthening effect with the Moulin Rouge Metallic Seam Tights in 10 denier, from the front they look just like a normal pair of black sheer tights but as soon as you twirl round you can see their glittery line that travels up the back of both legs. If those fashion tights aren’t quite glittery enough for you, then check out the Jonathan Aston Lurex Anklet, full to the brim with gorgeous glitter. Style these stunning socks with flat pointed shoes and a full length lemon yellow coat.

 

Floral

wolford-delia-tights_2

What do we all think of when it comes to Spring/Summer, yes you guessed it: flowers. Give this pretty trend a more modern update with the Wolford Delia Tights in 20 denier with their floral take on polka dots. If you think lace is ace then you will adore the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Tights with their rose patterned design – these popular tights have been styled by Vogue no less, now if that won’t convince you I don’t know

what will!

 

Whether you’re a floral fan, metallic lover or adore all things white, we hope that we’ve helped you find your perfect pair of tights so that you can adopt those trends with panache.

super-higher-power

Do we really know what goes on behind the scenes in the celebs’ dressing rooms? Well recently the popstar Lily Allen gave us an insight when she took an Instagram video of herself singing and dancing along to Drake’s Started From The Bottom in just a pair of Spanx shape wear with the caption: “cool mum”.

Steal the Air Balloon hitmaker’s style by wearing the Spanx In Power Line Super Higher Power but this time with a sequinned ombré style dress. This clever shapewear irons out any lumps and bumps and leaves you with a stunning silhouette thanks to their tummy control panels and overall strong control. The addition of ultra-flat seams means that these shaping shorts are ideal for special occasions like weddings or nights out where you want to wear a figure-hugging dress.

Clearly a big fan of Spanx, we wonder whether Lily wore the Spanx Power Mama when she was pregnant with her three children. These ingenious shaping shorts provide support for the mum-to-be’s back while trimming the silhouette. Maternity wear just got luxe. 

Many other celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Emma Watson have been snapped in their Spanx, admittedly they’re normally worn under clothing and spotted by mistake. If you want a pair of shaping shorts that you would almost be happy to reveal, choose the Pretty Polly Lace Shaper Short. Featuring medium control running from the bottom of the mid-thigh to the bra-line, their scalloped edging and floral lace design look absolutely gorgeous while their purse-friendly price won’t stretch the budget.

For more inspiration, look at our range of shapewear for a celeb tastic look in seconds.

Now take a look at the fabulous competition winner Jane Postlethwaite in her animal print tights and matching burgundy ensemble complete with gold shoes. Burgundy, gold and tan all compliment each other beautifully while the animal print tights go seamlessly with her patterned scarf for a matchy-matchy style. For a similar look, combine the Jonathan Aston Wild Tights in 20 denier along with a patterned oxblood red and metallic skirt, plain shirt and burgundy scarf. Alternatively go for the Trasparenze Adventure Tights in 100 denier with their chic panel design featuring half black opaques and half animal print for a flattering take on this fierce style.

We hope that you have found inspiration for new ensembles to go along with your patterned tights!

stoxbox-mainWith the arrival of the fabulous Stoxbox this week at MyTights, I’ve been thinking about my favourite hosiery accessories…

The aforementioned Stoxbox is the brainchild of creator Danielle Ashcroft, who, having bought a pair of fashion tights only to discover she already owned the exact same pair, came up with the idea of a clever little box to make hosiery storage simple.  All you do is insert the round edged wonder into the leg of your tights and twist all the excess into the hole at the back of the hollow cube.    I am already a huge fan, and since swiping the samples sent to us months ago, have been badgering the rest of the team about when they were due to arrive!  If you’re the type of woman who, like me, likes to label her shoeboxes with polaroids, you’ll love your new, streamlined hosiery drawer.  And with all the extra space you’ve created, why not fill it up with some of my other essential hosiery accessories?

An absolute must-have if you want to keep your hosiery in tip top condition, a washbag will prevent your tights from tangling in the wash AND protect them from snagging on zips and clasps.  Try the budget busting Charnos washbag, with a mesh design to let the suds work their

magic and a zip closure to make sure your hosiery stays put.  Or for a little treat go for the luxury version: the Wolford Wash Bag is larger, plus it features a satin ribbon hook and sweet rosebud  detail.  Most hosiery will

wolford-washbag

withstand a machine wash at 30°, particularly if you’re also using a hosiery bag.  But if you’ve got something extra fragile or you are just in the habit of handwashing your smalls, the Wolford Wash will treat your hosiery to some TLC (it can also be used in your machine).  Specially designed to be gentle to your garments, this mild detergent will wash away the day’s hard grind in a flash.

If you’re anything like me, you want your hosiery to last and last, particularly if you’ve splashed out on a luxury option- which is why the Wolford Hosiery Gloves, with their soft, satiny feel, are the perfect bodyguard for your favourite legwear.  Yes, they might make you look like a mime artist, but they’ll also protect your hosiery from sharp rings and rough nails – a trade I’ll take over snagged tights any day of the week!

And from looking after your tights to taking care of your feet, that’s not all you should stock up on for your hosiery drawer.  No woman, however glamorous, is immune to the pain that a day in tricky heels can cause, which is why I highly recommend the Levante Shoe Monkeys Foot Cushions, which not only prevent slipping but will add a little soothing pillow for the ball of your foot.  If you’re thinking that blisters are more of a nuisance, the Levante Shoe Monkeys Heel Cushion does the same job but for the back of your foot, preventing chafing

shoe-monkey-foot-cushion

and sparing you the agony of having to “break in” those new heels for 2 weeks before you actually want to wear them.

Speaking of new shoes, have you ever teamed a pair with your gorgeous new tights, only to realise to your dismay that the tights are so super soft that every time you take a step your foot whooshes out, leaving your shoe several paces behind on the pavement?  Well, good news, Cinderella – the Levante Shoe Monkeys Strap Strips will stop your feet slipping AND prevent against rubbing – plus you can trim them down to size with scissors, so they work just as well for strappy sandals as they do for glass slippers.

So whether it’s smart storage, tights TLC or heel healing your heart desires, stock up on my favourite essentials – and get ready to revel in your beautiful new hosiery drawer!

booster-shortMillions of people were watching the Royal Wedding three years ago when Katherine Middleton became the Duchess of Cambridge, so naturally the eyes of the world were also on Pippa Middleton and of course her behind as she aided her sister up the aisle.

It’s understandable that Pippa would want to look her best and might opt for some shaping shorts to make sure she looked fit for the occasion, or at least that’s what the French TV presenter Stephane Bern has been saying. During his chat show Mr Bern stated that it was his theory that Mademoiselle Middleton had worn some shapewear to achieve curvier assets.

The sheer absence of VPL (visible panty line) as well as a toned appearance certainly does suggest that she was wearing control wear, but which product?

Pippa could have been wearing the Spanx Slimpicity Booty Booster Shorts with their removable pads designed to give you a peachy behind. The strong control flattens tummies, hips and thighs – just the thing for a figure-hugging white silk dress. Their smooth fabric is laser-cut making them feel like a second skin. Being removable, the so-called “butt-lets” can be taken out whenever they’re not needed- leaving you with a normal pair of shaping shorts.

Want a lifted behind at a purse-friendly price? Then take a look at the Ambra Killer Figure Bum Lifting Shorts featuring clever ‘pockets’ of fabric that shape and lift bottoms for that perfect rear. Their medium strength control also smooths hips, thighs and tummies, giving you a gym bunny look in an instant.

Of course, unless Pippa confirms or denies the rumours we will never know the truth… but at least we can be safe in the knowledge that a gorgeous behind can be achieved in next to no time without a squat or cross trainer in sight!

'New Girl' Season 3 Finale Screening, Los Angeles, America - 08 May 2014Get some star style and perk up that monochrome look with a pair of polka dot tights.

America’s favourite girl next door looked fabulous at the Season Three Finale Screening for the FOX comedy New Girl, in which Zooey Deschanel has the starring role. With black stilettos contrasting with her white cotton sundress from Topshop, Miss Deschanel wore spotty tights. A fun alternative to sheer tights, these subtle spots are the perfect transition between her white dress and black shoes, and add a touch of fun to her chic ensemble.

Steal Zooey’s look and get the Oroblu Adele Tights with their small raised spots packed close together for a sophisticated look. Extremely soft against your skin, these 20 denier polka dot tights have a sublime matte finish so you can dress them up or down depending on your outfit. Just team these spotty tights with a white A-line dress and black platform pumps.

If you like that small spot look but want to add some colour, then we thoroughly recommend the Wolford Rice Dot Tights, made in a lighter 15 denier and available in nude with tiny raised purple dots. Made from the very finest of yarns, these luxury fashion tights have a sandal toe so you can wear them with any footwear you desire, even peep toe shoes!

For a more purse-friendly option, there is the budget busting Pamela Mann Sheer Dotty Tights in 20 denier, with their dainty dots available in a number of different shades including navy.

A classic look: this latest celeb spot proves that dots will never go out of fashion.

The Beckham family out and about, New York, America - 09 Feb 2014Once thought of as the preserve of the young, now the celebs are leading the way showing us how to embrace coloured tights at any age.

For the Kids

Children can wear bright colours with ease, for example Obama’s daughters wore coloured tights in aubergine and violet along with similarly coloured coats. To dress your girls in this matchy matchy style go for the Country Kids Warmer Cotton Tights available in both plum and purple shades, these 82% cotton tights are an excellent way to spoil your little ones. Or if you adore classic opaque white tights, fashioned here by the pint-sized fashionista Harper Beckham, then team the Pex Cotton Rich Children’s Tights along with some sweet ballet shoes. Miu Miu show, Spring Summer 2013, Paris Fashion Week, France - 03 Oct 2012

In Your 20s-40s

Your 20s and 30s are the perfect time to indulge in a big of experimentation with bold colour clashes à la Dianna Agron from Glee. Coloured tights with a sheer toe like the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights are perfect for teaming with peep toes or indeed platform sandals like Miss Agron’s pair. It is easy to get into a rut of constantly wearing black opaque tights, however in your 40s it’s a great time to team that favourite LBD with some flattering shades like wine and navy. Steal Claudia Schiffer’s style (yes please!) by matching tan suede ankle boots along with a patterned shirt dress, over-sized bag and the ultra soft Aristoc 80 Denier Microfibre Tights in burgundy.

In Your 50s + British Fashion Awards, Royal Horticultural Hall, London, Britain - 25 Nov 2008

For an elegant way to add a splash of colour to your look, channel Twiggy and team royal purple opaque tights such as the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Opaque Tights in Flo Purple with a metallic gold dress and a black jacket with matching black leather pumps. With such a multitude of shades and brands on offer the options really are endless!   Emma_signature
