Swifty in Suspender Tights!

Selena & Taylor

Selena & Taylor

 

A week without Taylor Swift cropping up somewhere in our hosiery blog doesn’t happen very often. Considered (by us at least) to have the best dressed legs in showbiz, the pop superstar has done it again, wearing a pair of gorgeous suspender tights on stage during her acclaimed 1989 tour. Having performed with everyone from Little Mix to none other than Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe from Friends between me and you) as part of her tour, the star celebrated the final leg of her world adventure with none other than best pal Selena Gomez. Pairing her suspenders with thigh high black boots and an embellished white two piece, she was also spotted mouthing ‘I love you’ to DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris…

Anyway, back to her tights! We loved Swifty’s look so much, we’ve been busy compiling out favourite suspender styles ever since in our bid to mirror her outfit. Giving the same look as stockings without the hassle of clips and garter belts, cue our top mock suspenders…

Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights

Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights

Cheating your way to chic, the hosiery world went mad for Henry Holland’s Super Suspender Tights a few years back, and their popularity doesn’t look set to fall any time soon. Worn by countless celebrities and offering a classic look, these 40 denier tights have a 20 denier sheer panel at the top and printed straps to mirror a stockings style. For a similar look with a little added luxury, also take a look at the Charnos Boudoir Lace Suspender Tights, which come with an exquisite lace panel to give your look a last minute splash of sophistication.

Always like to go for something slightly different? For fishnet fans, the Aristoc Mock Suspender Fishnet Tights should be your priority, with a classic net base and lace effect mock hold up tops at thigh height. On a similar note, last week we welcomed the Trasparenze AW15 fashion into our HQ, and the Eliodoro Tights were amongst our favourites. Featuring striped panels printed with spots, these mock suspenders will update outfits in an instant, and come with a printed panty for extra elegance.

Laura’s Choice: Plus Size

Shopping for tights on the high street can be a stressful task at the best of times (hence the birth of MyTights!), but it’s made worse by the fact that, even in 2015, the majority of stores seem to entirely overlook fuller figures. Motivated by our mission to find stylish hosiery for all, we’ve quite literally scoured the market to find the very best in plus size tights, hold ups and more, with styles accommodating hip sizes up to 60”. From everyday sheers through to tights that do more than meets the eye, you’ll find everything you need flatter your curves at MyTights.com…

 

Pretty Polly Curves Ladder Resist Tights

Pretty Polly Curves Ladder Resist Tights

The everyday heroes

Head turning they may not be, but where would we be without our everyday styles? Giving us a classic look without meaning we have to survive on bread and water until payday, anyone on the lookout for affordable sheers should head to the Pretty Polly Curves (XXTRA) Ladder Resist Tights (3PP). With three pairs of 15 denier tights for just £6.50 a packet, they not only offer some slight coverage in warmer weather but are made from ladder resist technology to prevent snags from developing into ladders. Should your fashion ethos be ‘glamour 24/7’, take a look at the Oroblu Magie 20 Plus Size Tights, which feature a gorgeous glossy finish for a sophisticated look that can extend into evening events if need be. If hold ups are more your cup of tea, the Levante Sheer Fantasy Stay Ups are a must, available in four shades and with luxe lace tops.

Of course, everyday hosiery isn’t all about sheers, and knowing how the British weather can switch from heatwave to washout in a matter of days, it makes sense to always have a few pairs of inexpensive opaques to hand. For dress sizes up to a UK 32, flatter your curves in the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Plus Size Tights, with a purse friendly price tag and 7 funky shades. When it comes to dressing for that ‘in-between’ weather, semi-opaque styles are the way to go, with the Charnos XeLence 50D Plus Size Tights my top choice. Specially designed for fuller figures, these opaques come in three colours and boast special anti-chafing panels to keep you feeling comfortable with every wear.

 

Pamela Mann Plus Size Fishnet Tights

Pamela Mann Plus Size Fishnet Tights

Never say no to fashion

Looking to get dressed up? A pair of fishnets is always a good idea, which brings us to the newest member of the MyTights warehouse – the Pamela Mann Plus Size Fishnet Tights. The fuller figured alternative to their regular fishnets, these tights are available in sizes ranging from 16-32 and in two classic shades. With their classic net design, they can also work to give your working wardrobe a little upgrade too, so they’re an incredibly versatile option. The mock suspenders trend has been an ever present ever since they burst on to the scene via Henry Holland a few years back, so grabbing a pair of the Pretty Polly Curves Suspender Tights makes perfect style sense, their 60/20 denier split and printed suspender straps. Also from the Curves range, make your mark on the spotty trend with the Dot Diamond Tights, with a scattering of diamonds across the entire leg and sizes up to an XXL.

 

A helping hand 

Long gone are the days where hosiery was just about keeping you warm, nowadays all of the brands are designing styles with hidden traits that most superheroes would be envious of. The success of the Aristoc Bodytoners range speaks for itself, so if you are looking for an extra helping hand to trim your figure without succumbing to a diet of spinach, head to the Opaque Toner Tights, which employ a top secret medium strength control top that works on your tum, bum and thighs.

Whether you spend 40 hours a week battling with a spreadsheet or find yourself on your feet for lengthy periods, it’s inevitable that your legs will start to feel tired and jaded. Combating lethargic legs and looking great to boot, the Levante Relax Firm Support Tights not only have a hidden control top but use graduated compression to boost circulation. There’s far less sensible (and headache inducing) ways to spend £12!

 

Falke Seidenglatt 15D Tights

Falke Seidenglatt 15D Tights

Touch of luxury

A touch of luxury never hurt anybody, and with hosiery it’s often the case that you get what you pay for. So if you are seeking a little refinement for your legs, I love the Falke Seidenglatt 15D Tights, which come in no less than shades. Suitable for hips of up to 56”, they boast a shiny finish that’s great for evening do’s and an adjustable waistband that can sit as high or low as feels right for you. Finishing off my plus size selection are the Wolford Velvet De Luxe 66 Tights, which, in true Wolford fashion feel velvety soft to the touch, and come with a 66 denier weight that’s fab for ridding your winter blues.

 

Until next time…

Laura’s Choice: Body Perfecting Hosiery!

Life: it has a habit of getting in the way, doesn’t it? Whether spending all hours at your desk or tackling the never-ending pile of ironing, there’s just never enough hours in the day for some well-earned me time. But forget fad diets and ‘miracle creams’ that do the exact opposite of what they say on tin, a brilliant way to perfect your look is with trusty hosiery! At MyTights, we believe that your legs are there to be looked after, which is why we’ve sourced the very best in body perfecting hosiery on the market. From tights that combat the curse of cellulite through to hosiery that smoothes over figures without lifting a finger, we’ve got the shortcut to body confidence covered.

 

Charnos Energising Support Tights

Charnos Energising Support Tights

Skin Perfecting Saviours

We know you already look fabulous, but if you crave a helping hand to perfect your pre-holiday skin, look no further than the Charnos Energising Support Range. Quite simply the hardest working hosiery on the market, this innovative collection not only looks great, but comes with a host of hidden features that would leave even Superwoman feeling inferior. Each of the products has been coated with a luxurious mix of Vitamin E, Sea Kelp and Shea Butter that actively moisturise your skin as you go about your daily routine. Not content with cutting your beauty regime in half, the range also helps to combat cellulite (yes, really!) through the use of compression that stimulates blood flow and prevents your legs from feeling lethargic. Who would argue with that?!

For medium support, check out the Charnos Energising Support Tights, opting for the Energising Support Knee Highs if it’s your lower legs that need pampering. Or if you require a little extra support, treat legs to the Firm Energising Support Tights.

 

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wave goodbye to imperfections: Coverage Tights

Working at a hosiery company, we’ve become accustomed to images of models with impossibly long legs and perfect skin, but we know that this isn’t a true reflection of the average woman. But instead of lamenting your imperfections, learn to love what you’ve got with our range of coverage tights! Similar to wearing make-up on your legs (just without the mess), coverage tights help to even out skin tone and mask blemishes such as scars or varicose veins.

The trick to finding coverage tights is to opt for sheers that are slightly thicker than the average (20-30 denier, ideally),  which are still sheer enough to achieve a summery look without looking like you’ve dressed for mid Feb. Top of the bill, for me, are the Wolford Neon 40 Tights. Don’t be fooled by the name; although these tights have the durability of a 40 denier, they appear like 20 denier tights, camouflaging your flaws and coming with a suitably glam glossy finish. For something a little more affordable, Italian brand Oroblu also have a great option with their Sensuel 30 Tights. Available in 7 shades and with a slight sheen for day to night versatility, these tights are virtually indestructible and will feel utterly lovely against your skin. Or for the same peace of mind but with a little extra luxury, make a beeline for the Falke Sensation Seamless 20 Tights, which come free from any seams, so you can wear figure hugging dresses to your heart’s content.

 

Aristoc Bodytoners Low Leg Toner Tights

Aristoc Bodytoners Low Leg Toner Tights

Control Top

Amongst everything else we have on our to-do list, it’s not always easy to find the time (or motivation) to exercise. If you’ve found your gym pass gathering dust, control top tights may be the perfect solution. Defining your silhouette and remaining completely hidden from outside view, control top tights appear just like any other fashion-forward hosiery, but come with secret panels to smooth over the most common problem zones. It’s an absolute must for me to point you in the direction of the Aristoc Bodytoners Range, comprising 5 pairs of tights that target different areas of your body. From the Tummy Tuck Tights for your midriff to the Low Leg Toner Tights for your tum, bum and thighs, this range of sheers is affordable, effective and should be your first port of call! For stronger control, the same name always crops up: Spanx! It’s not all about shaping suits and the like at Spanx HQ, either, as they actually also produce shaping tights. The Spanx In Power Line Super Shaping Sheers combine strong control shorts with inbuilt sheer tights – one secret we’re very happy to keep. Or for smoothing control with the quality of Wolford, head to the Wolford Individual 10 Control Top Tights, offering a high-end look that will stand the test of time. After something a little more purse-friendly? The Charnos Killer Figure Hourglass Control Tights are just the ticket with their medium control, slight sheen finish and reinforced toe.

Whatever your body insecurities, you’ll find the answer at MyTights!

Until next time…

Laura’s Choice: Bare Leg Look!

Okay, so the sun might be hidden beneath some rather contentious looking clouds, but it’s definitely making an appearance. For the first time this year, it actually feels like summer. For most, this probably mean jugs of Pimms and underestimating your ability to burn, but at MyTights HQ it means something very different indeed: bare leg look hosiery, of course! Quite literally the way to every girl’s heart, bare leg look styles are a seriously stylish proposition of late. In fact, it was rumoured that Kate Middleton herself was wearing a pair on the steps of the Lindo Wing as she revealed Princess Charlotte to the world, although we hope for her sake they were hold ups rather than tights! Want to know more? Here’s why we love bare leg hosiery so much:

 

- They blend blemishes and imperfections, leaving your pins looking beautifully smooth and you feeling extra confident!
- No need to dig out the tanning mitt; they give legs a sunkissed glow and moisturised finish.
- For peep toe devotees, leg hosiery means you can wear strappy sandals and open toed footwear to your heart’s content.
- They provide some ever-so-slight coverage on chillier summer days (always a possibility!)

 

Can’t see the wood from the trees? Here’s our guide to bare leg look styles and how you can select the perfect pair for you.

Falke Shelina Tights

Falke Shelina Tights

Best for: an unbeatably natural look

When you’re on the lookout to add some bare leg styles to your drawer, it goes without saying that you’ll want to achieve the most natural finish possible. Cue the Falke Shelina Tights, otherwise known as my ‘can’t live without summer essentials’. I wear them all season long, and there really is nothing better on the market for giving your legs the flawless finish we all crave. 8 denier in appearance but deceptively strong (they use a 12 denier weave), they come in a plethora of skin tone shades, all of which have been specially adapted by dermatologists for the most natural look around. Who would argue with science? Another one of my favourites are the Pretty Polly Naturals 5D Sideria Tights, which utilise a bi-component Sideria yarn, meaning your tights will appear finer than their actual denier. Like the Shelina’s, they also come in a range of skin tone shades and also benefit from being just £6 a pair. No section of natural looking hosiery would be complete without the Charnos Simply Bare range. Available as a pair of 7 denier tights, a toeless equivalent and a pair of hold ups to boot, this 7 denier range gives a look that the Duchess of Cambridge herself would covet, without being a flash in the pan thanks to a 15 denier durability.

Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights

Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights

Best for: Darker Skin Tones

If there’s one thing that’s been neglected for far too long, it’s bare leg look styles for darker skin tones. Until this year, that is, when we became the very first online retailer to stock the Nubian Skin range. Fresh from media success including a mention by none other than Oprah Winfrey, Ade Hassan and her team have produced four true to skin shades designed specifically for women of colour. Available as a pair of 10 denier tights and hold ups, the range will provide your legs with a fabulously airbrushed look that you’ll adore. Or if you prefer to stick to the brands you know and love, you should also take a look at the Falke Shelina Tights in Noisette and Coffee, or the Oroblu Geo 8 Tights in Mandel, Dore and Bambi.

Best for: withstanding wear and tear

Summer can be expensive business. No longer do we stay confined to the house snuggling up by the radiator, it’s time to explore, socialise and be the jetsetter you’ve always dreamed of. So it makes sense to save some money where we can. One great way of doing that is to invest in bare leg hosiery that goes the extra mile, such as the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights for instance. Giving the same flawless look but with LYCRA® Fusion fibres to prevent any snags or catches from developing into ladders, these are a must for any frugal hosiery fans. On a similar note, another great choice are the Charnos Run Resist Sheer Hold Ups. Beautiful on the outside but tough on the inside, these 10 denier tights come in two skin tone shades and leave ladders as a thing of the past.

Best for: swanky events

From weddings to formal parties, if you’re lucky enough to be invited to a glitzy event, you’ll want your legs looking their best. When I feel like wearing something that’s a little luxurious, I never look past the range from Wolford, especially the newest member of their clan, the Transparency Tights. Packed full of quality craftsmanship and as natural as the name would suggest, at £12 a pair they’re also very reasonable for a pair of Wolford tights. Or if 10 denier is that little bit too thick for you, I’ve always been a fan of the Individual 5 Tights, which prove that paying that little bit extra can be beneficial in the long run!

Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights

Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights

Best for: sandals and peep toe enthusiasts

If you spent an hour last night painstakingly perfecting your pedicure, showing them off in a pair of toeless tights is a must. Toeless styles are ideal for giving you the same natural look but allowing you the possibility to wear your beloved strappy sandals and open toe shoes in the process. Available in five shades, my favourites are the Falke Shelina Toeless Tights, which now feature a handy toe loop to keep the tights in place no matter what. If you’re more inclined to wear a pair of hold ups, the same toeless style can be enjoyed in the hold up equivalent, too! Toeless styles are becoming increasingly popular nowadays, and all of our favourite bare leg ranges have taken note, so I’d also advise to check out the Pretty Polly Naturals 8D Open Toe Tights, Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights and Trasparenze Tropea Toeless Tights before you leave.

Of course, it’s not always easier to know which colour will be the best match for you when buying hosiery online, so if you do have any questions or enquiries, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer services team who will be more than happy to assist.

Until next time…

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.

Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks

Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks

 

 

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

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…

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

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.
