It’s hard to believe that the pint sized Hollywood star is a mere 16 years of age. Whilst she collects style kudos working the red carpet in Christopher Kane & Alexander McQueen, we vaguely remember struggling to correctly apply eyeliner at the same age. Pangs of jealously aside, we adore Chloe at MyTights HQ. Currently doing the promotional rounds for her new movie Kick Ass 2, it appears she even had time to squeeze in a little photo shoot with monthly glossy Glamour too, much to our delight.
Along with channelling the likes of Ava Gardener & Lauren Bacall with a chic tribute to the flirty Forties, the starlet also embraced the glam grunge trend that’s set to take over our wardrobes this season – with gorgeous results. Naturally, we had one eye on the choice of hosiery and we were over the moon we spotted Chloe modelling some rather fabulous fishnet tights.
It’s no secret that we’re a massive fan of fishnets, given their tremendous versatile credentials, complementing just about any and everything that our wardrobe presents. Whether you’re after a taste of the West End or simply crave a more daring alternative to those sheers, fishnets are your answer. And given that they’ve stood the true test of time, it increasingly obvious that it’s not just us who adores them so. Decorating pins since their creation in Paris many years ago, the design has since evolved into something of a hosiery drawer essential. Notorious for looking just as great dressed up (fancy dress included) as they do dressed down, it appears that we ladies can’t get enough of the foxy nets.
Swiftly become the next name to join the fishnet fan club, Chloe styles her black nets with a feminine floral dress and oversized cardigan. For even more rock chic credentials, the 16 year old steps into heavily studded leather boots, achieving a harmonious balance between prim & punky (something we didn’t get the hang of until our early twenties).
For a leg look just like Chloe’s, we recommend the gorgeous Levante Fishnet Tights. With a matte finish and no visible reinforcement to hinder wardrobe decisions (these are already durable enough on their own merits!), these are the ultimate everyday pair. Going under every hemline without a hitch, you can go however high or low the occasion sees fit. Perfect for dancers and performers too, the gentle stretch in the fabric makes sure that the fit remains snug for a chic and polished style.
And whilst black is the go-to shade for all things chic, we understand that some of us need to appease our inner colour chameleons. Here arrives hosiery hero Pamela Mann, with their very bright and equally as charming Fishnet Tights. Available in more shades than there are days in the week, you can opt for a flo-pink or zesty yellow to add character to that otherwise understated outfit. Far subtler than coloured opaques or sheers (given that the colour is never solid), these can be worn for both work & play, making sure that your legs remain one step ahead of the fash pack.
Craving a little more flair? For those that want to take this look one step further, why not throw a retro inspired backseam into the mix? Fulfilling the requirements for look-at-me-legs, the Fishnet Seamed Tights from Pamela Mann still deliver all the flirtatious fun of a fishnet but include a backseam for instant leg lengthening. Foxy enough for that party but remaining elegant enough for a lunch meeting, these tights are perfect for showing the world that you’ve got style – and you’re not afraid to use it.
Three cheers for Chloe!
