Street Style – May ’14

We’ve all been there, thinking: “wow I love those patterned tights! But what could I wear them with?” It’s a common conundrum, being surrounded by so much choice, so it always helps to have the assistance of certain style gurus on hand. These two looks will give you plenty of inspiration for your hosiery wardrobe.


The first of our lovely fashionistas is Gisela, while visiting New York, she took a stroll in her Pretty Polly & Patternity Bricking It Tights in 80/20 denier – what better way is there to stand out in this fashion forward city? To copy this look team these tights with denim shorts, a sleeveless NYC top, a scarlet satchel and ankle boots.



If you’re a huge fan of the Big Apple then why not also check out the New York Skyline Tights from Pamela Mann in 50/20 denier. These fashion tights put a fun twist on that mock suspender style by including motifs of famous New York landmarks on the tops.



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!

Anne Hathaway takes a walk on the wild side ? and we?re a fan!

Is there anything that Anne Hathaway can do wrong? The answer, ladies and gentlemen, is no. Ultra chic and super stylish, the Dark Knight Rises star was spotted out and about in LA, showcasing a rather impressive pair of tights ? and we couldn?t but want to share the news! By styling her all black ensemble with a pair of animal print tights, the Hollywood starlet made sure her look was anything but ordinary.Jonathan Aston Wild Tights

Animal print remains big news in the fashion world, making an appearance in every form possible. It?s not without a loyal fan base either, with the likes of Kourtney Kardashian and Katy Perry often spotted embracing their wild side. But before you make the decision to rehaul your entire wardrobe in tribute to the jungle, seek inspiration from Anne and invest in some exotic hosiery.

For those wanting an exact style match, we recommend the Wild Tights by Jonathan Aston. Perfect for adding a little adventure to your outfit, the tights are made by combining opaque and sheer hosiery, leaving behind a naturalistic looking leopard print pattern that runs from the toe to the waist. Available in two colour ways (opt for the all black option to get Anne?s look), these will look fab when dressed up with heels and a flirty LBD. And even though festival season is months away, these have long been a favourite with A-listers at the likes of Glastonbury and Bestival ? so stock up now while you can…

A little more subtle but just as stylish, the Adventure Tights from Trasparenze feature half the pattern but deliver just as much fashion kudos. With a bold leopard print panel that runs down the side of legs, the luxurious opaques are the ideal candidate for after-hour drinks or that dinner date. Stick to all black like Anne or experiment with other animal prints for a trendy fash-clash.

If you?re sold on the idea of safari chic but you?re not quite ready to part with your everyday opaques, then why not dress feet in the trend? Short and sweet, the Animal Print Leopard Socks from Swedish brand Happy Socks will instantly add a little big cat magic. Created from super soft combed cotton, the regular length socks will look fab when worn underneath cropped trousers or even with bare legs & strappy platforms.

Still not convinced? Then why not browse our range of patterned tights for a little inspiration!

My Pick of Patterns!

Whilst the weather outside is becoming as reliable as a chocolate teapot, there’s only one thing I’ve got my eye on this week – new spring fashions. Never one to let a bit of snow deter me, I’m already dreaming of the fabulous hosiery that the sunnier & warmer season will bring with it.

For those avid readers of Laura’s Choice, it will come as no great surprise that I adore a bit of pattern, particularly of the colourful variety. Rather luckily for me, trends this season dictate that print is very much welcome, so I’m using this as the perfect excuse to get my hosiery drawer up to scratch.


First on my list – butterflies. It seems that this season, fashion has taken a rather holistic approach, paying homage to the glorious & great outdoors. With this comes the tribute to the beauty queen of the insect world, the butterfly. From a few to a full on rabble (I’ve done my research!), they’re perfect for adding a feminine touch to any ensemble. If you’re after a more demure style, go for the Trasparenze Belen Tights. As part of the SS13 range from the Italian brand, these sheer tights feature only a handful of the pretty little things, with a few hidden away on the brief. Styled with peep toes and a gorgeous chiffon skirt, even the most pattern-phobic amongst us will be converted!

For me, the cream of the crop has to be the Dream Tights from Jonathan Aston. Having selected them as one of my birthday favourites, I’ve been patiently waiting for the next batch of sunshine to appear so I can pull them on again. Adorning your pins from toe to brief with stitched butterflies, these tights add a fresh and fun feel to any outfit. Great for the office when teamed with a simple shift dress, you can also dress these versatile tights down at the weekend with a touch of denim.


Moving away from all things fluttery, the next pattern in my shopping basket has to be hearts. The last month has proved to us that the romantic motif is still going strong, as Burberry sent their models down the catwalk with gorgeous heart prints worth swooning over. Whilst the majority of us may not have their ready-to-wear collection at our disposable, we can still join in on the fun with the Pamela Mann Candy Hearts Tights. A near doppelgänger for the couture print, these opaques make a bold and beautiful statement that looks fab when paired with a trench (handy for those April showers) or for more fashion brownie points, a clashing animal print.

If you’re as dedicated to the sweet shapes as much as I am, seek heart print solace in the charming Celeste Stein Red Hearts Tights. Known as the ‘American Printcess’ to some, the brand are my go-to for quirky tights that will get those heads turning. By merging this season’s current obsession with all things white with dainty red hearts, these are a sure fire way to inject a playful, retro feel into your outfit and day.


And now for the last of my pattern trio – dots. And lots of them! Elegant, timeless and chic to name but a few, spotty tights have taken a permanent residence in my hosiery drawer for as long as I can remember. So versatile it sometimes borders on unbelievable, the celebrity following for the tights speaks volumes. But the pair of tights that has made me sit up and listen this week is the Bubbles Tights from Trasparenze.

Gorgeously charming, my favourite has to be the Multi colourway. Packed full of vibrant neon-pops, these will add a playful touch to even the most sombre of ensembles. I’ve always maintained that your legs should do the talking for you, and with these, you’ll never need to be the one to start the conversation!

So regardless of your pattern penchant or the temperamental weather outside (snow in March? Really?), make your print decisions now to stay ahead of the pack, keeping your wardrobe happy in the process.

Until next time…

Pixie Takes a Walk on the Wild Side…

It has just come to our attention that Pixie paid a visit to her old school, the Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts, wearing an amazing pair of tights. How we missed such an amazing look we have no idea… but the good news is you can get the exact same look with the super cool Jonathan Aston Wild Tights.

You can dress these tights (which are an absolute bargain at just £12, by the way) up with heels a

nd a mini dress but we just LOVE the way Pixie has styled hers with flat lace ups and a matching leopard print shirt for a casual daytime look. Teal is leopard print’s best friend -we don’t know why, they just look amazing together- so by adding a splash of colour she really brightens up what could otherwise be an outfit verging on boring.
To match Pixie, get the tights in Black (sheer black with an opaque black leopard print), but if you really want the design to stand out go for contrasting nude with black pattern.

If these aren’t quite what you were after, take a look at the entire collection of animal print tights to find your perfect partner!
