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.

Jameela Jamil Flashes her Seams


Radio 1 chart show presenter Jameela Jamil is known for her endless pins and high hemlines, flashing her bare legs wherever she goes.  So it was a surprise when the DJ and fashion bunny decided to cover up at the weekend in a gorgeous pair of seamed tights.  We all know that a classic back seam is the quickest way to instant chic, and Jameela funked hers up perfectly with her usual quirky style – a sheer panelled mini dress, zebra print jacket and flat Chelsea boots.

Unfortunately, the wind and Jameela’s short dress conspired against her and revealed a little glimpse of a boxer brief peeking out.  Boxer brief styles are perfect for teaming with pencil skirts or longer lengths as they add a little durability around the part of your sheers that suffer the most tugging and yanking, as well as giving your thighs and bum a little support.  If you’re opting for a boxer brief style, Pamela Mann’s Jive Seamed Tights are the way to go – they also have a reinforced toe so you can wear them again and again.  But if you, like Ms. Jamil, are rocking a high hemline, we definitely recommend going for sheer to waist design like the Wolford Individual 10 Tights, which also have a sandal toe so you can team them with your peep toes without any worrying about unsightly reinforcement being on show!

Spotted: Celebs in Tights

Everywhere we look there are celebrities flaunting legs clad in the latest fashions.  But there’s no need to be green with envy – it’s never been so easy to get the look.  You

don’t need a personal stylist, insider know-how or even loads of money, as this bunch prove…

Fashion opaques are the way forward this season and winter florals were huge on the catwalks at all of the A/W designer shows.  So make like Katie Holmes, who stepped out wearing the lovely Aristoc All Over Floral Tights recently.  The actress’s fashion sense has been given a whole new lease of life since her break up from Tom Cruise in 2011, and she looked chic and sophisticated in these, teaming them with a blue coat, red handbag and grey heeled ankle boots.

Kylie Jenner (of Kardashians fame) was also snapped latching onto the opaque fashion tights trend in the super funky Henry Holland Reverse Star Tights.  She styled them with a grungy black hoodie, but you can also try dressing yours up in your favourite LBD or even take them to the office!

Meanwhile Vanessa Hudgens (pictured)opted last week for suspender tights with an all black ensemble finished with an oversized mustard scarf and studded boots.  Not only are dressed down suspender tights the perfect way to get a look that screams rock chick, they are great for keeping your pins warm while flashing a little flesh.

So apparently covering up is

the way to style your pins this season – but not with your boring plain opaques you wear winter after winter.  Choose something new and fresh with the range of fashion opaque tights at MyTights.com for instant cosiness, without compromising on style.
