Paisley print problems… Sorted!

There is nothing I enjoy more than finding a new, wacky print to add to my ever-growing collection but I often find myself struggling on how to style them. Luckily for you, after much trial and improvement on how to work this look flawlessly I am now here to spread the news. You too will be able to achieve a day to night wardrobe sensation (you’re welcome).

At the moment I am particularly taken with the Pamela Mann Paisley Net Tights because with the correct outfit they can be worn in the office or out on the town. What more could you want?!

Although these tights are black don’t be fooled into thinking that black can only be worn in the evenings. Get your office look in line by teaming these with a pastel skater skirt (we are loving turquoise/blue/teal this season) and a black button down blouse. Splashes of colour keep the tights day time appropriate but also classy enough to wear to your next meeting. Keep your footwear simple with some black pumps that don’t distract from the pattern, see our Polyvore account for more great ideas!!

To take these tights into the night it is important that you keep the rest of your outfit pattern and print free to avoid clashing or overdoing it. Less is definitely more on this occasion! We decided that these paisley lace tights look absolutely gorgeous teamed with a black panelled skater dress and black heels to accentuate those gorgeous legs. The flowing hemlines of a skater dress will ensure there is enough femininity to this jet black montage. We recommend keeping your makeup fairly natural as the paisley print is enough of a statement and the all black outfit should be kept clean and simple.

Last but certainly not least is how to style these for a casual day time look, somewhere between office appropriate and evening wear. I think these paisley tights look really stylish with a gray skater skirt and a crop top with a simple coloured jacket. This look is casual and due to the colours all being simple/pastels/ nothing too outrageous or bright, it still has the spotlight on the paisley tights.

I hope this has helped you take one pair of tights to new heights and lots of different looks! Comment below on how you would wear these paisley print tights.

Festival Fashion 2014

pamela-mann-floral-tattoo-tightsWith festival season fast approaching it’s time to start thinking about the newest festival trends (who are we kidding; it’s been on our mind for ages). Whatever the weather, tights or knee high socks are a festival essential!

Maybe you fancy teaming some cute shorts with wellies and a pair of simple Charnos Black Tights which are also ladder resistant  *sigh of relief*. Or perhaps you’re more of a skirt and patterned tights kind of girl? These Charnos Stripe Mesh Tights could be the ones for you . Festivals may not be the most glamorous occasions, but that isn’t an excuse to give up looking fabulous and these Pamela Mann Floral Tattoo Tights are the perfect way to bring back a touch of luxury at even the muddiest, grubbiest festivals!

We are all well aware that British weather is incredibly temperamental; we sit and pray for sunshine throughout the festival period often to have our hopes dashed as we stand drenched in a field, up to our knees in mud. With optimism in our hearts it will be too hot for tights and knee high socks are the perfect alternative! A new, super cute option of Hello Kitty Welly Socks are perfect for avoiding those oh so painful welly blisters that we have pretty much all experienced at some point.

Maybe we will be unlucky with the weather and have our sunny aspirations crushed by a big fat rain cloud, in this case every girl will need a pair of Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings teamed with a crop top (and a rain jacket most likely!) This look has made a huge comeback with celebrities like Cara Delevingne and Taylor Momsen showing ladies all over the globe how to wear it. Everyone can rock it. Other legging options that are also festival perfection are these Transparenze City Leggings which would look great with a baggy T-shirt for that ‘chilled chic’ look everyone aspires to gain at a festival.

Finally, for those who are going to brave the weather and wear something more leg-baring than wellies a glittery pair of Jonathan Aston Lurex Ankle Socks could be just what you need to put a spring in your step.

We will keep our fingers and toes crossed for good weather…

Top 3 Lady Gaga Hosiery Looks

Lady Gaga Patterned TightsWhether she’s wearing a meat dress or styling her hair as a button (yes really), Lady Gaga is certainly renowned for her eclectic taste. But did you know that she’s an avid hosiery wearer, constantly snapped in a selection of terrific tights? We’ve included here a list of her top 3 hosiery looks. Now whether you choose to match them with a dress made of bubbles à la Gaga is up to you!

1. Fishnets

Seen recently on the David Letterman with a leather jacket, black knickers, a black diamanté bra and brown fishnet tights, Lady Gaga emulated Madonna by wearing her underwear over her fishnet tights. Another time, inspired by that glamorous 20’s style, the Do What U Want singer teamed a girly lace blouse decorated with pearls, cream frilly pearl-adorned shorts along with nude fishnet tights. Lady Gaga was also snapped in a pair of black fishnets teamed with a spiky leather jacket and, well, black knickers, proving that this diva has a serious addiction to fishnets! Both times the Alejandro hitmaker showed off the sheer brief style of fishnets, showing off the fact that no matter how high your hemlines go, fishnets will never let you down by showing off reinforced material. To emulate Lady G’s sexy style we recommend the Levante Fishnet Tights, available in black, brown and nude styles.

2. Suspenders

Wearing a matching latex hat, bodysuit, and over knee boots, with a lace fan (why not?) and suspenders (yes, just suspenders and no stockings!) for a modern take on a classic look. For this saucy look in an instant why not match the Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights with a pair of knee high boots and some black city shorts (perhaps cotton is tad more practical than latex)! These 40/20 denier suspender tights have actually been spotted on Jessie J and Frankie from the Saturdays, too.

3. Patterned Tights

With marine blue hair, leopard-print platforms, a black lacy bra and a black and indigo blue jacket, Lady Gaga was on top form again when she was photographed in a pair of detailed fashion tights. For fun patterned tights that will make an impact like the Poker Face starlet’s pair choose the Pamela Mann Comic Strip Tights. Made in 60 denier, these fashion tights are brimming with fun imagery in bright colours, funky enough to impress Mother Monster herself and at a price that won’t break the bank – what’s not to love?

What MyTights Wore – 11.04.14

Spring has finally sprung and the only thing prettier than the blossoming trees outside is the sheer range of fabulous hosiery inside the MyTights office.

 

Nix-Dorella-Leggings02

Nix looks fabulous wearing the gorgeous Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings with a short chevron patterned dress and large gold hoop earrings. Follow Nix’s example and wear your mini dresses with style by matching them with leggings.

 

Laura-Floral-Tights-Mar-03

Floral tights are an elegant way to embrace fashion tights. Laura wears her floral patterned tights with a pleated long-sleeved dress, slim black belt, patent black heels and statement silver necklace.

Emma-PamelaMannFashion-03

Embracing the horizontal stripe trend, Emma teams her stripy fashion tights with black ankle boots, skater skirt and horizontal striped jumper. Mock over the knee tights that combine opaque and sheer deniers are perfect for when the weather is not quite warm enough for low denier sheer tights.

Hopefully we will have even more gorgeous weather next week, whatever happens we’ll be wearing some fabulous tights!

Rock your Interview, in Style

When you are going to an interview, the last thing you want to do is lose yourself in a boring outfit. The purpose of an interview is for the employer to get a glimpse of who YOU are and your ensemble is the perfect way to show them that! We can’t think of a better way to look professional and stylish than with a trendy pair of tights! MyTights has loads of options for every type of style that will help you feel confident and nail that interview.oroblu-jillian-patterned-tights

Preppy

If you have a preppy style, then you are already know how to dress a bit more conservatively, which is perfect for interviews! You can use your classy style to your advantage by wearing a pencil skirt with a blazer or even a modest cut dress. However, don’t forget to add the finishing touches with the Wolford Rice Dot Tights to add a bit of texture to your simple look, a neutral or even lightly coloured pair of Jonathan Aston 40d Opaque Tights for a finished look, or you can also really impress the interviewer with the Oroblu Jillian Tights.

Edgy

With an edgy style, you are adventurous and stand out with your wardrobe, however, make sure that you still look professional. The best way to do this would be by wearing a blazer or even a pencil skirt and adding a fun pair of tights. The Pretty Polly Layered Honeycomb Tights add a unique touch to your ensemble and would even look great with a patterned chiffon shirt underneath a blazer for a contrasting patterned look. Also the Pamela Mann Baroque Tulle Tights and Jonathan Aston Tienga Tights are very unique and guarantee that you will stand out, but remember to pair with them with professional attire.

Glam

Every glam girl loves to accessorize and a pair of alluring tights are the perfect accessory for an interview. You already know how to make an accessory look fabulous, but remember it’s an interview so don’t go overboard. The Jonathon Aston Mimi tights and the Pamela Mann Linked Leaf Lace Tights are the perfect combination of funky and classy. The Jonathan Aston Stardust Tights are also a great option because they will add the perfect amount of sparkle to your interview and would complement a sparkly statement necklace!

wolford-mimi-tightsGirly

Femininity is your specialty, so adding a pair of tights to your wardrobe probably isn’t a new concept. However, you can enhance your style by adding a simple floral element to your interview with the Wolford Mimi Tights or a lace floral texture with the Jonathan Aston Rosy Tights. Also, no girly girl can resist a pair of black polka dot tights, and the Moulin Rouge Dot Tights are just that and look great with just about anything.

No matter your style, MyTights has loads of tights that will help you make a first impression that says “hire me” at your interview—but don’t forget to prepare for the questions too!

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!

Team MyTights’ Capsule Collections

HannahCalvinKlein80DHighWaistOpaquesSuzannePrettyPollyVelvet120DI’ve always been a firm believer in the “capsule wardrobe”.  Whilst it can be tempting to impulse buy on the high street in a mad panic to find something new for a dinner date or party, investing in quality basics has always stood me in good stead, and over the years I have amassed a wonderful collection of investment buys that are utterly timeless.  As with most things, I have of course applied this to my hosiery drawer, and this week bring you my capsule hosiery collection, as well as the hosiery drawer essentials of the rest of the MyTights Team…

Opaque Tights

Classic opaque tights are a core staple of any woman’s wardrobe, and an absolute essential for me, given our temperamental British weather and fondness for bicycling in all weathers! My marketing expert Suzanne and I both love the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights, which are gloriously soft and shiny and come in a range of shades (I have them all, of course).  Hannah from the marketing team loves Calvin Klein, and the Calvin Klein 80D High Waist Tights are her absolute favourites, as they contain a little secret streamlining. Meanwhile, customer service queen Nikki and warehouse wonder woman Krys both opted for the Jonathan Aston 40D tights, which come in, as Krys says,”every colour you could want” – and so are ideal for matching to everything you own.

Lauraoroblusensual30moccaSheer Tights

Sheer tights have always been a fundamental part of my collection, and thanks to the advancements made in hosiery technology (not to mention a certain Duchess), sales of sheers have soared in recent years. I truly believe that with quality products like the Oroblu Sensuel 13 Tights you really do get what you pay for. But that’s not to say you can’t get a great bargain- Hannah loves the Pretty Polly Naturals 8D Sandal Toe Tights, which are a steal at just £5! You can even get sheers with in-built extra powers, like PR girl Emma’s favourite Charnos Energising Support which also help to keep the skin moisturised and prevent cellulite.  And the Falke Shelina Tights are a market leader when it comes to practically invisible bare leg look tights (they come in a range of shades designed with the help of dermatologists), so it’s no wonder these were Nikki’s AND Suzanne’s top pick.

Fashion Tights

Fashion tights are set to be THE accessory of the season come autumn (just ask Vogue), so I recommend adding a pair to your essentials collection. A classic pattern, like the Mary Portas Spotty Shaper Tights that made Suzanne’s must have list, or my beloved favourite lace Wolford Nahla Tights, are classic fashion styles will work season after season. For something a little more daring, make like Emma and try the Pamela Mann Paris Skyline Suspender Tights, which have an intriguing mock suspender design featuring the iconic Paris skyline – perfect got adding a little je ne sais quoi to your look.

EmmaParisSkylinePamelaMann

Other Key Pieces

These three are the starting point for any capsule hosiery collection – what you add after that depends on your personal style. Krys and Nikki both opted for socks (the former for the bold, fun Happy Socks Women’s Gift Box, and the latter for the “ideal for netball” Charnos Trainer Socks). Hannah confessed a certain weakness for the Spanx Power Panties (“an absolute essential for under clingy dresses”), and I have to say I love the SPANX Active Leggings for making me feel stylish at the gym.

I hope the team’s top picks have provided you with a little inspiration for your own capsule collection – after all, it only takes one great buy to get you started!

Until next week…

Laura’s Choice: My Top Ten Birthday Favourites

It’s my birthday this week, and as the best birthday present I could ask for is lots of sales (!) I’ve decided to give YOU a present – 15% off all my favourites when you buy any two.  Simply shop your favourites from my top ten and enter the code BIRTHDAY15 on the basket page – hurry though, as the offer ends on Thursday 27th February at midnight (GMT).  Now the only thing left to do is decide which ones you’ll pick, so I’ve let you in on the reasons I love these key pieces quite so much…

LauraFalkeSeidenglatt70BaroloFalke Seidenglatt 70 Tights: Thick, shiny, and utterly luxurious.  Falke has long been one of my favourite brands thanks to the high quality products they produce, and the Seidenglatt 70 Tights (pictured right in Barolo) are no exception. Available in a range of glorious hues from oceanic blue rich red wine shades (I think I have almost every colour they’ve ever produced in these!), they boast a thick appearance and shiny finish that adds a little elegant flair to any look.

Levante Fishnet Tights: Fishnets are a summer staple of mine – they’re perfect for allowing a little added breathability when the weather is simply too hot for sheers, and they add a little interest whilst remaining perfectly subtle.  The Italian design of these makes these an all round great classic fishnet – and they come in sizes to fit up to 6’1” – perfect for those of us with long legs!

Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights:  The perfect way splash some colour into your look, these come in a 40 deiner weight and so give even coverage without being too heavy.  Available in around 20 shades, they have a fabulously purse friendly price so you can stock up on a rainbow of shades.  You can go for colour blocking or clashing if you prefer, but I love a matchy matchy look (and as it was spotted all over the AW14 catwalks there’s now nothing to stop me!)

LauraWolfordNahlaWolford Nahla Tights: The ONLY way to do lace, I absolutely love these classic lace tights (pictured left).  With a fine net and floral lacy motif, these will instantly inject a little va va voom into your look.

Charnos Diamond Stripe Tights: Just as classic and elegant, these diamond patterned tights feature a flattering vertical design – diamonds are a girl’s best friend, after all, and the pattern will never go out of style.

Falke Shelina Tights: The best bare leg look sheer on the market.  The skintone shades have been developed with dermatologists to ensure a completely natural look on the leg (I have friends that cannot believe I’m wearing tights when I wear these with strappy sandals), while their super fine, light as air feel on the leg belies their 12 denier strength.  These are my can’t-live-without product and always, ALWAYS my go-to sheers.

Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Close Fit Pant: I’m not really a fan of footless styles and I don’t often wear shapewear, but I’m more than happy to break all my rules when it comes to these amazing shapewear leggings.  These keep everything tucked in during spin class and deliver a medium shaping control, making going to the gym a joy and eliminating the fear of bumping into someone I know on the way back!

Lauraoroblusensual30moccaOroblu Sensuel 30 Tights: When the weather is changing its mind every 2 minutes in typical British fashion, I need something that will give me a little coverage and warmth without making me overheat if the sunshine does make an appearance.  The perfect trans-seasonal staple, the semi opaque 30 denier weight and super silky feel of these (pictured right in Mocca) has made them the ideal candidate for those in between days.  Plus, they come in loads of shades so you can go for a chic black or grey for the office, or opt instead for one of the skintone shades for an airbrushing effect for your legs!

Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights: For sheers with a sleek, shiny finish, I can completely understand why customers flock towards the Aristoc Ultra Shine range.  The tights give a gorgeously glossy, polished look to the leg and come in several flattering shades, making them ideal for evening and special occasions.

Pantherella Dorothy Fairisle Socks: I just LOVE the super soft, utterly luxurious feel of Pantherella Socks, and these have a gorgeous fairisle design that comes in 4 colours and a super soft construction made up of 85% cashmere – the perfect gift for someone special (I recommend buying two pairs as once you feel them you’re bound to want to keep a pair for yourself).

 I hope you all love my favourites as much as I do.  Never mind happy birthday – happy shopping, ladies!

Until next week…
