The MyTights team are constantly on the lookout for up and coming hosiery trends; a) to satisfy our own legwear addiction and b) to source our wonderful customers with the most on-trend styles at the very best prices! With all our hard work, we love nothing more than when our products are appreciated by fashion stylists and journalists alike. In the last few weeks, MyTights have staged a mini-takeover of the media hemisphere, featuring in a host of leading publications such as Daily Mail, The Mail on Sunday and Cosmopolitan to name but a few!

MyTights founder Laura, quoted as a ‘hosiery expert’, was thrilled to be approached by the Daily Mail, imparting her wisdom and giving her opinions on a host of patterned tights for the party season. The editorial featured a host of our fabulous tights, one such style being the Moulin Rouge Je T’aime Seam Tights. Quirky and super-fun, these 15 denier tights have a sultry backseam, finishing at the mid-calf and blending into a unique script section. Spelling out the words Je T’aime, opt for these if you’re on the lookout for statement legwear for an evening event – also the perfect choice for Valentine’s Day! The same article also featured the Pamela Mann Paris Skyline Tights, bringing the romance of Paris into your hosiery collection and making for truly memorable legwear look. Perfect with an LBD, these 80 denier tights have a sheer panel at the mid-thigh, topped with the beautiful Parisian skyline! Good news if you like these, they’re also available in the New York skyline

Moving onto Cosmopolitan, their latest issue featured the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Stockings (supplied by MyTights!). A great choice for injecting some

Cosmo Recommends Mary Portas’ “Tights of Wonder” from MyTights.com

Well, the fashion team at Cosmo certainly know what they’re talking about.  Which I guess is what you would expect, them being experts in their field, but  too many times we follow the advice of mags and end up looking as though we dressed ourselves in the dark.  In a charity shop.  (One geared towards the elderly generation).

Not this time, though, as Cosmo have recommended the Mary Portas & Charnos “Tights of Wonder” control tights range (supplied by MyTights.com, naturally).  The three styles available – sheer, spotty and chain patterned “Scroll” tights have all got superb inbuilt control.

The boxer brief is where all the magic happens.  A series of knitted-in control bands pull in the tummy, flattening and smoothing your stomach, hips and thighs.  Plus, another band sits just under your bottom to provide a little lift – the tights are shaped to accentuate the curve of your rear without flattening it.

Cosmo recommends the Spotty Style, where as well as an all over figure fixer, you can show off your pins in a classic, ultra-chic design that’ll make you look like a sexy 40s screen siren.  The plain sheer version are perfect for the office or for under formal dresses, while the Scroll pattern is a touch funkier and works well for a fun, striking weekend look.

Cosmo calls them “wonders to add a little lift to your day” and a “body miracle”.  The maker calls them “an instant red carpet figure for real British Women”.  We call them “the ultimate in can’t-live-without accessories.”  And we’ve

no doubt that after trying them, you’ll be calling them “my new best friend”.

MyTights.com in Cosmo!

The style gurus at Cosmopolitan Magazine always seem to get it right… so who are we to argue with their rules for a happy wardrobe even when we’re broke and freezing?  You can read the entire article here, but we’ve pulled together the highlights …

1)      There’s no shame in faking it

Cosmo reckons that when push comes to shove, there’s no harm in using shapewear to supplement your gym routine in the quest for a gorgeous figure.  Having felt our own resolve dwindle as January went by and watching every single New Year’s Resolution fly out of the window, we reckon there’ no harm in using shapewear to replace your gym routine.  Flat stomach in 2 minutes?  Yes please.

2)      You CAN work bright colours and still feel chic

If the thought of acid and neon brights coming back into vogue any time soon is enough to make you break out in a nervous rash, it’s time to learn that colour is not a no-no.  Pastels are going t

o be everywhere this spring and there’s nothing easier than a mint green handbag or pale lilac pair of tights to perk you up for Spring (when it finally arrives, of course).  Browse our range of coloured tights and team with creams and pale greys for a look that is as right on trend as it is classically simple.

3)      It’s “All in the Legs”

Of course Cosmo caters for the braver fashionistas, too, and they think that a pair of statement tights are “an ingenious and affordable way of updating and changing your look”.  They love the Pamela Mann coloured Fishnet Tights (pictured), supplied by MyTights, and the Henry Holland for Pretty Polly range, as worn by Jessie J.

Great style advice from the Cosmo team, and just in time to update your wardrobe before it begins to look horribly bare!
