Review: Charnos Honeycomb Tights

Reviewer Emma  EmmaCharnosHoneycomb
Product Charnos Honeycomb Tights
Range N/A
Colour Black
Size S/M (I’m a size 10 in trousers)
Price £6.00
Colour Comments (if applicable) N/A
Appearance comments An intriguing alternative to Fishnets. The appearance will depend slightly on dress size. The honeycomb effect will be clearer for curvier ladies, whereas, if you’re slim the look is more subtle.
Appearance Score  9/10
Feel comments The textured structure of these patterned tights feels great to the touch. Considering that I bought a size too small, I’m impressed that even after my evening chocolate binge, the flat waistband still felt really comfortable. Clearly these sheers won’t give you as much protection from the elements as fleecy opaqees, but they still felt pretty warm even though I wore them on a very cold winter’s day.
Feel out of ten 10
Fit comments  I plumped for a S/M because my dress size is 8. However, the tights felt a bit small because I usually take a 10 in trousers/shorts. If you are borderline between 2 sizes (like me) then l would advise choosing the larger size. The boxer brief felt quite tight but this would be solved by getting the larger size.
Fit out of ten 7/10
Value for Money Comments At £6 these tights provide very good value for money for such a lovely design. l am extremely happy with my purchase and keen to try out new Charnos products.
Value for Money out of ten 10
So, Does it Work? N/A
General comments A subtle and sexy take on the classic fishnets look.
Any Tips or Care Instructions? Again go for a bigger size if in doubt. With regards to washing, a machine wash should be fine for these tights if you do not have time to wash your tights by hand, though we alwayd recommend using a hosiery bag.

Carole Middleton: Game Changer, Opinion Divider, Fashionista

carole-middleton-patterned-tights-zoomA few days ago, Royal in-law Carole Middleton was snapped in demure patterned tights, and instantly made waves in the fashion world, sparking fierce debate with fashion critics everywhere to criticise her style for being “too young”.

how to save money on electric bill

MyTights sprang to her defence in our blog – and lo and behold, a few days later everyone is changing their tune and decided that her look is actually rather fabulous – which must mean that MyTights is now the go to experts on all things fashion (probably).

Not only have the Daily Mail published a guide to patterned tights, everywhere we turn there’s someone quoting Vogue as saying that “fashion tights are back”.  Woman and Home Style Director, Angela Kennedy, agrees with us too: “No age is the wrong age to wear black patterned tights – it’s all about having the right legs and the confidence to carry them off.”  Hear hear!

The perfect transitional piece to take you from winter coat to sundress in style, a classic pair of patterned tights will go with everything in your wardrobe, as well as giving you a little coverage when it’s still too cold to contemplate bare legs.  Here’s our round up of the Daily Mail’s guide on how to rock patterned tights, whatever your style… so now you’ve got no excuse!

Catwalk Queens

Those who like to nod towards high fashion in their sartorial choices should look toward the Mad Men era this season in subtle, sexy seamed tights Feeling brave?  Animal print tights are sure to make a statement and never seem to go out of fashion.

Embellished Princesses

Keep the rest of your look simple and understated – a simple LBD with minimal jewellery is perfect – and go statement with a gorgeous pair of embellished tights.  Think sequins, sparkle and everything in between.

Workaholic Fashionistas

Patterned tights to the office isn’t as much of a no-go as you might think – the trick is to keep it simple.  Try a very fine pattern in a surprising shade, or go for a classic, like polka dot tights.

Curvy Goddesses

No bright colours and no fishnet designs, says the DM, which can often be unflattering on larger legs.  Instead opt for ribbed tights styles which streamline your shape and make your legs appear endless.

So here’s to you, Mrs. Middleton…

carole-middleton-patterned-tights-zoomFashion ?controversies? never cease to amaze us ? first of all it was Kate Middleton?s nude tights, now her mum Carole has been making waves with her own legwear.? Stepping out in Chelsea yesterday in a chic black ensemble, Mrs. Middleton teamed a double breasted black coat with lacey patterned tights.

The world immediately declared themselves shocked at her (and I quote) ?awful? choice of hosiery.? Erm? really?? Many have criticised her for dressing too young, because her hemline was ? shock horror ? about three inches above the knee.

What?s all the fuss about?? It?s not like she?s parading round in a minidress and fishnet stockings (though Madonna, 55, frequently does) ? it?s a pretty standard outfit in our opinion ? not quite Lady Gaga.? In fact here at MyTights HQ we think she looks sensational!? The look was elegant and pulled together, with nothing revealing or trashy ? in fact it was so conservative it might even have bordered on boring, were it not for the fabulous lace tights covering her (amazing!) legs.

Too old?? You?re never too old for fashion.? In fact she reminds us a little of national treasure Dame Helen Mirren, who at 68 doesn?t let her age stop he from wearing fabulous frocks and bikinis without a care ? and in our opinion Mrs.Middleton looks just as great as The Queen actress always does.? And if we look half as good as Carole does when we?re her age, we?ll be more than happy.? So we say bah humbug to all the haters ? we heart Carole?s style!

There are loads of fashion styles you can rock that are perfectly subtle enough to work with even a conservative dresser ? here are our top picks for getting Carole?s look?
