Avril’s Suspender Tights

Fashion-rebel Avril Lavigne donned a daring ensemble in her performance in Southern California over the weekend. Pictures show her pairing black suspender tights with mini black pleather, shorts and a rock-music emblazoned tank.  Her look matched her rock-inspired set list with just enough of a girly touch, reminding us that she is not the young sk8er girl she used to be – but rather an older and sexier version of one.

Backstreet Boys in concert, Los Angeles, America - 29 May 2014

Avril isn’t the only celeb wearing the suspender tights trend.  Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, Rihanna, and Selena Gomez have all been spotted wearing the sexy legwear with their own outfit choices.  While their styles were more fit for daily wear, Avril’s should be saved strictly for performing.  Her barely-there shorts paired with suspender tights give off a slightly raunchy look, one we recommend not copying for tea with your grandmother.  However, it does give off a rebellious vibe we love for clubbing.

While this trend is not for the faint hearted, we’ve done the work for you and chic-ified it so you can wear it to work and around town.

Suspender tights are sexy enough so the rest of your outfit should be a little more conservative.  We love to pair our Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights with a medium length skirt and jumper for a more covered up, cosy look.  For more of a relaxed look, black shorts with a plaid flannel or tucked-in blouse will make you look stylish yet covered-up.  Add a light parka over a simple dress to add an army-inspired edge to your sexy ensemble.

To add femininity to your outfit, we suggest wearing tights with a patterned suspender.  Try the Pamela Mann Large Overknee Heart Tights to soften your look.  Pair these with a simple dress and flats, and your outfit will be flirty while still maintaining the right amount of sexy.  If you’re feeling especially bold, you can try our Hello Kitty for PP Mick Suspender HK Tights for a young, playful look.

Thanks for the inspiration Avril; while we wouldn’t wear this outfit to our job, we love what you’ve done with this trend.  Leave a comment below telling us how you style your suspender tights.

Mother-Daughter Looks

Like mother, like daughter. When it comes to fashion, most girls can’t help but have their wardrobe inspired by their mothers! This is especially true amongst famous families—and who can blame them? The Obamas, Middletons, Beckhams and even the Ciccones (Madonna) have daughters that follow similar trends in their hosiery and you can even mimic their looks with your own mum!mother-daughter-look-obamas-polaroid

The Obama girls are often overshadowed by the man of the (white) house, but that doesn’t stop them from looking fabulous. Michelle always keeps it chic and classy with a beautiful ensemble usually paired with plain opaques, but she recently started following the spring and summer trend with glossy sheers. They make her legs look moisturized and fit, without overpowering her look. Her daughters have a similar chic style with plain opaques, but show their youth with the popular colour blocking technique. The girls also matched each other in complimentary colors, how cute! You can get the Obama family’s looks with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights for mum and the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights for the daughters!mother-daughter-look-middletons-polaroid

Kate Middleton and her mother Carole also have corresponding classy styles; however they have recently started to differ in their hosiery. Kate is maintaining her royal appearance with her famous bare or almost-bare look while her mother has been adding a twist to her wardrobe with her elegant patterned tights. They both look stunning, and you can too with the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights for Kate’s classic look and the Charnos Diamond Net Tights for Carole’s chic legs.mother-daughter-beckham-polaroid

Victoria Beckham’s fashion choices are always making headlines and little Harper is well on her way to follow in mummy’s footsteps. Both babes were spotted in wool tights—mummy in black and Harper in white. The contrasting duo will continue to make fabulous hosiery choices, and you can match the Beckhams and your baby girl with the Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights and the Country Kids Warmer Tights.

mother-daughter-look-madonna-polaroidMadonna and daughter Lourdes have been turning heads for their edgy hosiery selections. Madonna has been getting attention for her eccentric fashion choices for some time and still uses her fishnets for a 80s throwback vibe. Lourdes is a rookie compared to her mum when it comes to making headlines in fashion, but she does so with ease by clashing a tartan skirt and stripy tights. Getting these looks has never been easier with the Charnos Fishnet Tights for a Madonna inspired legs and the Pamela Mann Stripe Over Knee Suspender Tights for Lourdes’ edgy ensemble.

 

 

It’s never been easier to be as stylish as these mother-daughter icons and it can all be found at MyTights.com!

Stars Get Full On Fishnet Fever

jesy-littlemix-fishnets-resizedWe’ve been seeing the signs for a while – a celeb spotting here and there, a press feature every so often.  But over the last month or so, it seems it’s official: fishnets are in again.  Sure, there has been the odd sighting, and perhaps we should have known it was coming – after all we lost count of the amount of times we saw nude fishnet tights in place of sheers over the summer, and stars like Beyoncé and Rihanna have been rocking them on stage for ages.  But it’s only recently that we’ve seen the trend come into full force, with fishnets on the catwalk and – more importantly – on the legs of celebs and everyday women around us.

Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson might be busy taking America by storm, but she still finds time to coordinate some fierce fashion looks.  Her and the other girls are known and loved for their bold fashion choices, so while not all of us will be able to pull off the fishnets-tartan-leather combo, we can take note and incorporate them into our looks.  For a subtler way of flaunting your fishnets and still tapping into the grunge trend, try punky accessories – a tartan bag, leather jacket or studded boots – with a classic tailored shift, or soft cotton jersey dress.

Get Jesy’s Look: The Trasparenze Rita Fishnet Tights have a slightly wider net, just like Jesy’s, and come in a rainbow of shades for those that dare to go beyond classic black.

 

Showing us how to work fishnets and leather and still look elegant, Georgia May Jagger was snapped as she left Claridge’s a couple of weeks ago modelling her own version of the “London look”.  Teaming classic fishnet tights with point heels, leather skirt AND jacket, she finished the look with a colourful silk scarf tied around her neck and smoky eye make up.  We’ll be swapping the leather jacket for a silky cream blouse to avoid overdoing the leather.

Get Georgia’s Look: The Levante Fishnet Tights are made with classic Italian design and come in nude for the summer months, too.

Even the mega A-List is getting in on the action.  Hollywood superstar Julia Roberts was featured on the cover of Vanity Fair’s annual awards season issue.  In a spread shot by Annie Leibovitz, the star was pictured sitting on Idris Elba’s lap (lucky Julia), flanked by 12 Years a Slave’s Chiwetel Ejifor and Hollywood bachelor George Clooney.  Wearing a tux jacket, high heels and – you guessed it – fishnet tights, the Pretty Woman star might have missed out on the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, but she’s definitely a strong contender for Best Dressed Legs.

Get Julia’s Look: We recommend adding some cocktail shorts, but anything with a seam with help you get that Chicago-style glamour – try the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Backseam Tights.

 

As if we needed any more proof of the Return of the Net, it turned up yet again on the LFW AW14 catwalks – notably at Jean Paul Gaultier where nets and lace featured heavily, and at Tom Ford where the models wore fishnet tights with pencil skirts and knee high boots.  We’ll be using the show as our autumn workwear inspiration, and teaming suede pencil skirts with boots, fishnets and soft, luxe long sleeved t-shirts.

Get the Catwalk Look:  A high end looks needs high end accessories – the Falke Net Tights are a great example of classic design from a luxury brand.

So whether you go for wide net, coloured, classic or hold ups, you heard it here first: fishnets are well and truly BACK.

Little Mix's Perrie Rocks the Luxe-Casual Look in Jonathan Aston

We’ve always known that Little Mix were great fans of the Statement Tight (Henry Holland did create their own personalised Alphabet Tights for them, after all), plus last month the girls rocked the FAST at Jonathan Aston Scramble Bodies on Daybreak. So we weren’t surprised to spot Perrie Edwards in the extremely pretty Jonathan Aston Fantasy Tights, which she teamed with a little denim playsuit and chunky winter coat.

We’d been all geared up to save these tights for our party frocks, but we love the idea of dressing these tights down like Perrie! In fact, the entire Jonathan Aston A/W collection is full of super luxe designs that we’ll now – thanks to Perrie – be teaming with casual basics. Here’s how you can rock the Aston-ista look without dressing up to the nines…

Cheryl Cole Goes Dotty!

Cheryl Cole is our kind of woman.  Following a rough ride over the last year, she’s back… looking better than ever!  With newly blonde locks and showing off her amazing legs in Wolford Bonny Dots Tights, you would never guess the terrible time she has had.

Made from 20 denier sheer hosiery and with opaque polka dots, you can get these Cheryl Cole Tights today from MyTights.  Not just similar tights – the EXACT ones she’s wearing.  Not only are spots the hottest print around this season, it never really goes out of fashion – and tights from a luxury brand like Wolford means they will last through the seasons!

We recommend following Cheryl’s lead and teaming these tights with a stark monochrome look to really enhance the pattern and to keep the look high end and sophisticated.  Try the tuxedo look by teaming a white shirt in luxe fabrics like silks and chiffons with hotpants (gulp!) or a slightly more forgiving pencil skirt if you are curve-conscious.  Or for a girlier take on the look, try short dresses with peter pan collars, and finish the look with leather or suede accessories like box clutches and loafers.

Cheryl is already a confirmed fan of Wolford tights.   When she wore Bondage Tights on the X Factor, everyone went crazy for them and they became a nationwide sellout, with those who missed out having to settle for copies. So we recommend you grab a pair while you still can!

Fans of Cheryl’s look can also check out a range of tights inspired by Cheryl’s style in our selection of Cheryl Cole Tights.

There’s no doubt about it – Cheryl is a style queen.  Get the look today with these Wolford beauties from MyTights – while you still can!
