Rihanna, Queen of Hosiery

We couldn’t help but notice that Rihanna has been seen out and about A LOT recently in some mind blowing hosiery. From working the sports luxe look in some cute fishnet socks to sporting super glam bondage style tights, she’s been rocking some amazing styles. Here’s a round up of our favourites…

Fishnet Socks

Rihanna was spotted celebrating her Brits win in Mahiki nightclub wearing fishnet socks just like the new Henry Holland Fishnet Anklets with pointy blue heels and a bright yellow/green playsuit. As with most of Rihanna’s looks, on paper it just shouldn’t work and yet somehow it does! She finished the look with some huge futuristic sunglasses and a long gold necklace. She has also worn fishnet tights on several occasions, including black and nude versions while performing as well as seamed fishnet tights at V festival in the summer!

Luxury Basics

Rihanna has also been seen in several styles of luxury basics. Last month she performed at the Grammy’s in a pair of Falke Pure Matt 50 Tights which kept the rest of her look (leather shorts, a mesh crop top and wild hair) chic rather than trashy. In the same month she also tried the Wolford Velvet de Luxe 66 which she wore out and about in London. Stepping out to dinner in an unusually demure outfit, she teamed her black opaques with denim cut offs, a black polo neck and grey blazer, finishing with lots of chunky gold jewellery to complete the super luxe feel. Getting your basics from high end brands like Falke and Wolford can be cost-effective as they tend to last longer and be more durable, and especially if you wear tights on a regular basis they are definitely worth investing in.

Red Or Black?

Both, if you’re Rihanna. The singer stepped out in a pair of her trademark denim hotpants which allowed everyone to see her black stockings with red suspender strap combo. You can get the look with our range of stockings and a suspender belt such as the Jonathan

Aston style which is available in scarlet. If you’re not used to stockings or simply find them difficult to wear all day, check out the Pretty Polly Pretty Braced Suspender Tights – the traditional suspender tights design with a red mock suspender strap.


Following on from the massive success of website Wolford’s bondage tights which were an instant sell out when Cheryl Cole wore them back in 2010, Rihanna sparked a frenzy recently when she was snapped wearing a pair of bondage tights. While the exact style she wore have now sold out, you can still get the look – try the Wolford Captivate tights or, for a cheaper alternative, take a look at the Pamela Mann Straparound tights. Although Rihanna gets away with teaming the tights with a baseball cap, oversized denim jacket and high heeled boots, we recommend trying them with a pretty summer dress or structured shift to balance the look out.


Of course, if you find most of Rihanna’s outfits tricky to pull off, there’s still the classic look to fall back on that anyone can work – suspender tights. This classic design shows no sign of slowing down or going away just yet, with new celebrity converts swelling the ranks every day, from Made in Chelsea’s Caggie Dunlop to society heiress Paris Hilton. These are so easy to wear and go with everything – from tailored shorts and silky blouses to slouchy t-shirt dresses.

With so many looks to choose from it’s never been easier to get a slice of the pop princess’ style. Whether you want some super luxe opaques for daytime in the office or something straight from the catwalk, take a look at the selection of Rihanna Tights and get the look today!
