Laura’s Choice: MyTights Socks Style File

MT Socks Style File!

MT Socks Style File!

 

Here at MyTights HQ, we’re lucky enough to get the first glimpse of all the latest hosiery styles, fresh from the production line of the leading brands in the legwear market. But with this week seeing the arrival of June, our attention has turned away from thicker opaques and onto hosiery that’s more appropriate for the warmer temperatures, namely socks!  A far cry from being an unwanted gift from a great great aunt twice removed (or something like that), socks are emerging as a real fashion staple. Affordable, great for every season and capable of updating your whole look in a matter of seconds, the MyTights.com team thought we’d let you in on our style secrets, and show you how we’ve been decorating our feet in recent weeks!

Trasparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks

Trasparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks

Beginning with Customer Service & Operations Manager Nikki, who teamed a pair of grey knee high socks with black leather boots, and a dark grey dress. This is a fabulous example of how to wear knee high socks in a professional setting. Allowing you to reveal some skin while keeping the lower half of your legs happy, take a look at the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto, rolled down for a similar look. Made with an impressive 65% cotton for a soft feel without overheating, these deliver everything you could possibly want in a knee high. Or if you’re feeling brave enough to branch out from the safety of black, white and grey, make a beeline for the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks, available in not one, not two, but 19 shades, from the basics all the way through to eye-catching hues of yellow and orange.

Next up we have Marketing Assistant Chantel who, armed with the knowledge that ankle socks are as popular as ever this season, opted for a fun summery ensemble. Pairing a floral pencil skirt with red Converses, for us the pièce de résistance are her frilly ankle socks, which are perfect for adding a girly touch to any look! For a similar style, opt for the Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Sock, with an embossed floral design, attractive lilac hue and most importantly, scallop effect tops for a sweet style fix. Prefer something with a little more pattern? Be sure to check out the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks, which are covered in a handwritten scroll, spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ dilemma!

Now, something for the men! You might not know that MyTights.com stock a fantastic selection of men’s socks as well as women, as demonstrated by both Warehouse Assistant Jack (left) and Content Assistant Jack (right). Opting for the quirky collection from popular Swedish brand Happy Socks, Jack mark one chose to wear Happy Socks Men’s Dot Socks with casual trainers, skinny jeans and a sweater, while Jack mark two shows that patterned socks can add a splash of fun to office wear, wearing his Happy Socks Men’s Big Dot Socks with smart trousers and a pair of black brogues. If you’re keen to snap up the entire Happy Socks collection, what better way to save some cash than treating yourself to the Happy Socks Men’s Sock Gift Box, containing four pairs of combed cotton patterned socks for just £25?!

Charnos 2PP Flower and Diamond Sock

Charnos 2PP Flower and Diamond Sock

Last but not least we have Graphic Designer Jade, again choosing to add some colour to her look with some geometric socks. Wearing her patterned gems with white jeans and camel desert boots, socks like this are ideal for adding an instant style hit to everyday wear. If you’re a fan, check out the Charnos range, in particular the Charnos 2pp Flower and Diamond Socks. With one pair boasting an edgy diamond print and the other a sweet floral motif, these are perfect for keeping your feet feeling refreshed no matter the weather. Your sock drawer has never looked so fashion-forward!

Whether you swear by ankle socks or can’t bear the thought of a day without knee highs, MyTights.com have it covered. You can find our entire sock selection here.

Until next time…

Spotty Sheers Klaxon: Karlie Kloss!

Karlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss

 

If there’s one way to know whether something is on-trend, you can bet your bottom dollar that a supermodel will be wearing it. Case in point: model of the moment Karlie Kloss, who was last week spotted in a gorgeous pair of spotty tights. Despite the embarrassment of a Marilyn Monroe style moment in which a gust of wind lifted up her dress, the 22 year old still managed to look gorgeous. Teaming an ultra feminine floral shirt dress, with black and gold statement heels, the star of her outfit was undoubtedly her patterned tights. Since appearing all over Diane von Furstenberg’s AW15 show, polkadots have been a key trend in recent months, and while you may not have the never-ending pins of Karlie herself, there’s no reason why you can’t follow her lead and decorate your legs with some sensational spots. Need some inspiration? Cast your eyes over our favourite dotty delights!

Pamela Mann Sheer Dotty Tights

Pamela Mann Sheer Dotty Tights

1) For a classic pair of spotty tights that won’t impact on your purse strings, we adore the Sheer Dotty Tights from everyday favourites Pamela Mann. These 20 denier sheers feature a symmetrical dotty pattern from the boxer brief downwards and come in three colour combinations – something to match every outfit!

2) From classic spots to something a little different, the Charnos Geo Spot Tights allow you to wear two hot patterns at once, not only covered in spots but a subtle diamond print to boot. Perfect day or night, these are your one way ticket to style paradise.

3) Something of a romantic? The Pamela Mann Sheer Hearts Tights are the perfect choice. These may appear like a pair of classic spotty tights, but look a little closer and you’ll find that the so called spots are infact hearts! Chic, memorable and adding a girly touch to your outfits, they’ll also leave you with change from a tenner!

Charnos Spot Ankle Highs

Charnos Spot Ankle Highs

4) Not a fan of tights? Don’t fret; you can still enjoy the charm of dots thanks to the Charnos Spot Ankle Highs. These opaque ankle socks look fabulous with skater skirts and shorter hemlines, and come with a multitude of satin effect spots for a cute twist on the trend.

5) If you love spots but always need a little sparkle, the Charnos Lurex Spot Opaque Tights could be just the ticket, covered in an array of silver metallic spots to catch the light and leave your look dance floor ready.

Spots: we just adore them! Check out all of our dotty delights before you go…

Summer Staples: The MyTights way!

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

 While the weather might be feeling a little Jekyll and Hyde of late, with next week comes the beginning of June, which means one thing – its summer! Finally, it’s time to relegate your opaques to the back of the drawer, stock up on the suncream and bask in the rays of summer heatwaves (we hope!) The key to owning a summer wardrobe to be proud of lies in stocking up on staple items that will ensure you always have something suitable for the occasion. Whether for sun-soaked holidays, garden parties or the obligatory Saturday afternoon BBQ, MyTights are on hand to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch!

 

 

Staple: Floral

Where: Garden parties, BBQs, nights out

Often considered to be the epitome of a summer style, floral prints are as big as ever this season, but MyTights being MyTights, we have everything you could possibly need. For a classic floral print, check out the Oroblu Elaine Tights, with a lace-like floral effect running across a tulle base. Or for something a little more quirky, you’ll adore the Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights, with a striking side seam made up of brightly coloured floral motifs.

Nude Fishnets

Where: Nights out, the office

Listen up: no summer wardrobe is complete without pair of nude fishnet tights! Whether worn with sweet summer dresses or even in the workplace, nude fishnets are perfect for adding some interest to an otherwise bland outfit and keeping you feeling refreshed. The Levante Fishnet Tights in Naturel are perfect, opting for the Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights if you prefer a smaller net.

Staple: Pastels

Where: Weekend lunches, picnics

What would summer be without pastel hues? From chic lemon through to pretty pink, pastel colours are everywhere this season, so it makes sense to stock up. For a plethora of pastel hues, check out the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights, or the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks.

Staple: Ankle Socks

Where: Picnics, nights out, trips to the seaside

When it comes to adding a finishing touch to your ballet pumps, we choose ankle socks every time. Perfect with skater skirts and tea dresses, ankle highs add that final flourish to your look, without breaking the bank. For colour, look at the Trasparenze Marta Ankle Highs, or if you prefer something patterned, the Charnos Spot Ankle Highs are a must.

Where: Garden Parties, nights out

Or for something a little more understated, take a look at the Oroblu Sherry Leggings, with their muted floral lace effect.

Ankle Highs Trend: FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs

  

She might be dating one of the worlds most lusted after film stars in Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, but that hasn’t stopped FKA Twigs expressing how difficult it can be facing the wrath of his ‘Twi-hard’ legion of fans. Relationship woes aside, we’re really here to talk about her style! Stepping out this week with Rob on her arm, the Grammy nominated singer chose a typically quirky patterned number, chunky boots and black ankle socks peeking out of the top. While our attempts at the pattern trend may be a little more dressed down that the singer herself, we’re big fans of her ankle socks, which are perfect for this time of year. Fashion-forward, easy to wear and affordable, check out our cream of the crop below.

Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks

Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks

From petal pulling to style savvy, cast your eyes over the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks, covered in a handwritten script spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ game. Complete with scallop tops and available in two delightful spring shades, there’s nothing better for updating a bland outfit.

With polkadots as popular as they’ve ever been, make sure your sock drawer is right in the thick of it with the Charnos Spot Ankle Highs. Opaque ankle highs with satin effect spots running throughout, they come in three colours and look great with summer skirts and skater dresses.

For ankle socks devotees, grab a pair in every colour thanks to the Trasparenze Marta 70D Ankle Highs. From classic black to the vibrant height of turquoise blue, these 70 denier ankle highs are purse-friendly and ideal for racking up the style points every spring/summer.

Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks

If floral fashion is your forte, the Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks couldn’t be any more perfect. With a pastel lilac hue, these anklets have an embossed floral print for an adorable finishing touch to tea dresses and denim shorts.

Consider yourself to be an old romantic? Show it with the Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklet, with their sheer base and amalgamation of opaque love hearts running throughout. As seen of Fearne Cotton herself, these are the sweetest thing we’ve ever laid our eyes on.

Celebrities LOVE hosiery: Get The Look!

Just like waiting for a bus, we’ve been waiting days to spot another fabulous celebrity hosiery look, and then three come along at once! From other sides of the globe and all choosing to wear hosiery in their own individual way, we bring you a round-up of celebrity looks, and how YOU can recreate them at the drop of a hat.

Iggy Azalea

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Beginning with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, the 24 year old isn’t always known for her fashion choices, but that all changed this week when we laid eyes on these images, shot for a 100th birthday special of iconic underwear label Bonds. While we may not opt for an outfit quite so risqué, we fell hook, line and sinker for her grey over the knee socks. Boasting a classic ribbed design and with extra-wide black tops for a chic contrast, we think they look great with her heeled biker boots. What do you think? If you love her look as much as us, treat yourself to the Oroblu Lysette Over Knees, with the same ribbed finish and wide band. Or if you want to copy her look down to the colour, check out the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto!

 

Charlotte Crosby

Charlotte Crosby

Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings

From an internationally acclaimed rapper to everyones favourite George Shore hellraiser, we spotted Celebrity Big Brother winner Charlotte Crosby on the streets of London in a funky pair of patterned leggings. We love fashion leggings at MyTights – there really is nothing better for brightening up your basic pieces. Charlotte clearly agrees, teaming her marvel inspired leggings with an oversized jumper and white trainers. To get your hands on a similarly fun look, check out the Pamela Mann Fleur de Lis Leggings, covered in the fleur de lis prints for a regal feel. Or take things back to your childhood with the Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings, covered in an assortment of retro sweets that you can enjoy without having to worry about your figure.

 

Tallulah Willis

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Last but not least, we simply had to comment on this adorable look from Tallulah Willis. Having been raised by Demi Moore, the 21 year old was always going to know a thing or two about looking good, and this ensemble more than caught our eye. Bridging the gap between a dressed down vibe and statement appeal, she tucked a denim shirt with a suede skater skirt, finishing the look with sheer black tights and sparkly ankle socks. A stellar performance if we say so herself, recreate the look with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights and the Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks, a combination that’s bound to make you a style star. Or if ankle socks aren’t for you, layer the Pretty Polly Sparkle Rib Over The Knee Socks over your sheers for a similar shimmer.

 

We can’t keep up – it’s a hosiery takeover. Keep checking back for more celebrity looks soon!

Festival Fashion: Our Top Picks

Ankle Socks

Ankle Socks

Boho bangles and flower crowns… it could only mean one thing… it’s festival season! We all know if there’s ever a time to overload on accessories, it’s now. In fact, to really capture the bohemian festival look, accessories are a must, and what better way than with hosiery?

Should the sun have his hat on, we definitely know that less is more. For this reason, ankle socks can add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit and nail the ever popular layered look. Try a classic solid pair of Trasparenze Marta 70D Ankle Highs to peak out the tops of your ballet pumps and combat boots. Matched with a patterned pair of high-waisted shorts, you’ll stay cool and refreshed and look gorgeous to boot. We especially love the brighter shades for getting us in the festival spirit.

Kendal Jenner shows us that festivals are all about

 being bold with patterns. Though we’re aware that most of us can’t pull off high-waisted flares, we do know how to pull off prints. The Oroblu Butterfly Leggings for instance offer a mix of blue and cream colours with butterfly motifs. Making a statement while listening to your favourite bands – sounds like a pretty good day to us!

 

Two piece outfits have been all the rage of late and lucky for us, they’re perfect festival attire. To dress this look up the MyTights way, pair with cosy over the knee socks and slip on plimsoles. The Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks come in a wide range of colours to complement your co-ord to perfection.

Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups

Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups

The most important ingredient to a festival you ask? That’s right, glitter. Whether you sparkle with rhinestone jewels or get painted in gold henna, glitter is a must. To add more to your outfit, check out our glitter and shine range. Try the semi opaque Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups for a hint of metallic glow that lines the back of each leg in floral print. Teamed with decorative body paint, there’ll be no stopping you from strealing the festival fashion crown.

You might be sleeping in a tent and odds are you haven’t showered for three days, but hosiery is always on hand to keep you looking fabulous!

Have a fantastic time, ladies.

Katy Perry does Harajuku chic in ankle socks!

Katy getting into the Tokyo way of life!

Katy getting into the Tokyo way of life!

Katy Perry has never been one to shy away from the fashion limelight, has she? In fact, her tour outfits are amongst the most risqué we’ve ever seen, but we can’t help but love her. Currently residing in Japan as part of her Prismatic World Tour, it seems that Katy has immersed herself fully in Japanese culture, stepping out in this Harajuku Girl inspired outfit. Pairing a white blouse with a pleated skater skirt and with her hair teased into tight plaits, her sweet look was brought together with a pair of crisp white ankle socks with stripe detail.

Wolford Leonie Socks

Wolford Leonie Socks

While we can’t say the whole Harajuku get-up is for us, there’s no denying her skater skirt and ankle dress combo is super cute. Every spring, we watch as the ankle socks trend gains precedence once more, and it’s not hard to see why. Updating your outfits in an instant and leaving you on speaking terms with your bank manager, we can’t get enough. Are you a fan of Katy’s look? If you are, you’d be a fool not to check out our top ankle sock picks. From classic white through to fashionable patterns, ankle socks aren’t going anywhere, so we suggest you sit up and take note!

Adore Katy’s look? The Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks could be just the ticket. Available in a plethora of colours as well as crisp white a la Perry, the cotton rich fabric and matte finish make them the perfect everyday accessory. Oh, and at just £3.95 a pair, you can stock up with a pair in every shade! From classic design to funky patterns, we fell in love with the Wolford Leonie Socks as soon as we laid eyes on them. If you follow the latest fashion trends, you’ll have noticed the popularity of spots of late. In typical Wolford style, these 15 denier socks upgrade traditional dots with an array of larger than life polkadots. Fun, quirky and perfect for wearing with skirts and denim shorts, what are you waiting for?

Charnos Stripe Ankle Highs

Charnos Stripe Ankle Highs

Are you the kind of person who considers your outfit incomplete without some shimmer? If you are, the Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks are a must, with their metallic thread and decorative pellerine design.

TOWIE Do Fancy Dress!

Lydia Bright

Here at MyTights.com, we love nothing more than getting into character for a fancy dress bash! When it comes to fancy dress, we’re of the opinion that if you’re going to do it, do it right, which is why we loved these photos of the cast of TOWIE at their Mad Hatters themed party. Still going strong after 14 series filled with drama, romance and the infamous ‘SHUTUUUUP’, what we loved most about the fancy dress efforts was the amount of hosiery in sight!

Not least by TOWIE’s very own fashionista Lydia Bright, who completed her Alice in Wonderland attire with a fittingly sweet pair of white ankle socks. She may have been in fancy dress, but we heart her cute socks, and it’s a look we know we’ll be wearing with our summer hemlines when the weather heats up a bit. For a similarly sweet look, take a look at the Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks, with an embossed floral print and pretty scalloped tops. Or if it’s something a little quirkier you’re after, opt for the Trasparenze Sommerfugl Socks, with their ever so playful mix of spots and bows.

Fran Parman

 

Moving on now to Fran Parman, again opting for ankle socks to complete her fairy tale look. If you’ve fallen for her baby blue look, recreate it with the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Cielo! Perfect with summery dresses and skater skirts, it’s the ideal way to add something new to your wardrobe without breaking the bank.

 

Jasmin Walia

 

It wasn’t only socks on show, either, with Jasmin Walia opting for a pair of vampy fishnets to finish off her edgy Queen of Hearts look. If you’re finding yourself drawn to her choice of legwear, why not copy it with the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights, making for a great alternative to your sheers and coming in 10 vibrant colours.

Essex isn’t always known for its style, but the TOWIE cast sure know a thing or two about chic hosiery!

Rihanna Shows Us All How To Style Ankle Socks!

We’ve been hooked on Rihanna ever since she brought Umbrella to our airwaves way back in 2007. Altogether now… ella, ella, ella, eh. No? Okay. Continuing to assert her presence not only on the music world but the fashion, she truly is one of a kind. Sure, she might get it wrong sometimes. For instance, this week she was spotted wearing socks and sandals, but it doesn’t matter when she pulls outfits like the below out of the bag!

 

Style perfection!

Style perfection!

 Having been announced as the new face of cosmetic brand Dior (and being the first black woman ever to take the accolade, FYI), Rihanna was this week photographed at the premiere of her new animated movie Home in a cute as a button teal dress with a cute bow print. Accessorising with a matching jacket, pointed teal heels and black ankle socks, Rihanna showed everyone how to look great without falling foul to an OTT look. For us, the star of her outfit was her socks, working to dress down the ensemble and give off a flirty edge that was perfect for the relatively low key premiere. Are you crushing on her socks? Each and every one of us can recreate it, and even better, at an affordable price!

Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks

Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks

To copy her look to perfection, look no further than the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Nero. We’re sure Rihanna spent a whole lot more on hers, but these opaque ankle highs are near on identical, and will set you back just £3.85 a pair. What reason could you possibly have to say no?  If patterned dresses aren’t for you, how about running Rihanna’s look upside down with a plain dress and pair of patterned socks? The ideal way to do this is with the Jonathan Aston Illusion Socks! Made with thin diagonal monochrome stripes that meet in the middle to create a chevron effect, they’ll look great with killer heels and a black skater dress.

Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets

Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets

New to SS15, another one of our favourite styles are the Jonathan Aston Crystal Socks, which are perfect if your outfits are lacking a little in the personality department. With their ribbed finish, the satin bow at ankle height is perfect for giving your outfits an on-trend look (if it’s good enough for Rihanna…) Feeling romantic? Opt for the Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets, with their chic sheer base and mix of opaque love hearts. Not only giving your outfit a super-cute twist but also seen on fellow fashionista Fearne Cotton, we love to wear ours with black party dresses!

Keep up the good work, RiRi!
