IF THE SUN CAN’T DO IT… WE’LL DO IT WITH TIGHTS!

fearnecotton_goldtightsIt was as almost as if the designers had predicted our slow start to summer, because all over the catwalks there were attention-grabbing, glistening golds bright enough to replace the sun on an over-cast day in May. Both bold and beautiful, this trend is a sure fine way to get men sweaty under the collar without the hot weather!

At MyTights HQ’s we have a sneaky suspicion that this revival of Eighties lamé and head-turning metallic hues will be very popular among the fashion elite. One of our favorite collections from S/S was Louise Goldin who brought to us innovative sheer tulle inserts in a gold cyber-bodysuit along with metallic lurex leggings. Similar designs are available here at Mytights! To turn Goldin’s runway into a reality choose Pamela Mann Highball Footless tights and if you really have your finger on the fashion pulse, you’ll layer up with ankle socks over the top!

But if you’re after more of a glare-free option that won’t blind co –workers opt for Emilio Cavallin’s Metallic Pie De Poule with Black Tights. The combination of metallic and grubby gold hues achieve a sought after antique look and more of a day time friendly vibe. And they wouldn’t look out of place in Balmain’s collection where the garments looked as though they had been buried for several years and unearthed moments before the spring show!

Guess what, we’ve spotted our favourite radio DJ indulging in this trend, the slave to fashion: Fearne Cotton. She was arriving at LFW ahead of the PPQ show wearing a Vivienne Westwood dress, Gold tights, a pair of Gina shoes and a Mulberry bag. We especially love her look, because she took her outfit to new dizzy heights of fashion with the layering of cute ankle socks over her tights. Someone has been studying the catwalk! When asked about her look Fearne said: “I love socks and I just think that socks for me next year will be quite big. Socks always, I love Socks” (Metro.co.uk).

IT REALLY IS A JUNGLE OUT THERE…

Jungle prints never really go out of style, but they certainly do get an update every season. Spring/Summer 2010 is no exception – your basic cats like Leopard and Zebra definitively remain trendy, but it has been taken to a whole new level of tribal chic. This is a trend that can penetrate into every aspect of your wardrobe whether it is office attire, casual weekends with family, romantic dinners or a fun fuelled night out with the girls.

Thanks to Roberto Cavallini’s predilection for animal prints and jungle motifs in his S/S collection this trend continues with multi-coloured leopard print, bold colour combinations, as well as pale pastel animal prints. At MyTights we love Pretty Polly Animal Opaque tights available in Raspberry Pink and Grape. These are perfect for brightening up an outfit and tapping into the tribal trend!

Fans of leopard print don’t have to worry though, as it still comes in its usual colours! Check out Fearne Cotton in her chocolate brown pair. She keeps it casual in converse and matching sunnies. Be queen of the fashion jungle and get your own at MyTights, choose Celeste Stein Carletta Tights or Jonathan Aston Animal Tights and beat Fearne to the Lioness role!

At MyTights you also have the rest of the jungle at your disposal. Other styles include Jonathan Aston’s Tiger Net Tights and Celeste Stein Cheetah Tights. To achieve a full-on tribal effect wear these with perforated skirts or trousers layered over the top with slashed and ragged T-shirts, think “me Tarzan, you Jane” mixed with Balmain S/S and you’re all set.

Statement tights – anything goes this season!

Obviously, we’ve been raving about all kinds of hosiery and funky fashion tights for years, but we’ve loved 2009 as the entire world of fashion has joined in.

The celebs really got on board with statement tights after they were all over the catwalks back in the spring and now it’s winter, they are making even more of a splash on everyone’s legs than the rest of their outfits!

The Mirror’s Celebs magazine spotted a whole host of famous faces rocking patterned tights this month, with Henry Holland for Pretty Polly a popular choice for Agyness Deyn, Una from The Saturdays, Fearne Cotton and, erm, Cheryl from Hollyoaks.

However, there were so many other styles and designs that it proved really anything goes – Juliette Lewis wore red tights with glittery circles, Taylor Swift sported herringbone-patterned lovelies and Sadie Frost went for white lace to create a classy, Jackie O-style look.

There you go – proof that you should definitely experiment with patterned tights if you’ve never tried them! They’re fun, bang on-trend and they might even keep your pins warm as you head from party to party this Christmas.

Fearne Cotton glams up in lace patterned tights

We’re more used to seeing her in laid-back trainers and slouchy indie outfits, but Fearne Cotton has proved that she knows how to up the glam factor when she needs to.

The Radio 1 DJ was pictured by the Daily Mail at a charity auction for Macmillan last night wearing a blue velvet dress, gold shoes and some gorgeous black lace patterned tights.

Her long blonde locks were styled in a sleek down do and she added a slick of scarlet lipstick for some added sex appeal, resulting in a great outfit for a winter party.

It looked smart but still super-trendy and so much cooler than flashing too much goosebumped flesh when it’s freezing out!

For a similar look to Fearne’s, why not try the Jonathan Aston Sweet Rose Lace Tights from MyTights.com?

They have a sweet flower pattern all the way up the leg, as well as a saucy back seam for that 1940s pin-up-style effect.

See Fearne here and check out our full range of lace tights on our website too.

Fearne Cotton: I love socks!

If you want to stay ahead in the style stakes over the coming months, you’d better buy some socks.

This is the opinion of DJ Fearne Cotton, who was quoted by the Metro as saying that she loves the humble hosiery.

Speaking at London Fashion Week’s PPQ show, the 28-year-old – who recently took over Jo Whiley’s mid-morning slot on Radio 1 – commented: “I love socks and I just think that socks for me next year will be quite big. Socks always, I love socks!”

She also appears to like tights, as she was pictured sporting a gold lurex pair with her Vivienne Westwood dress later on.

We’re with Fearne in her love of socks as they are great for cooler autumn weather. Why not try a really jazzy pair in the form of Jonathan Aston’s Cotton-Cashmere Argyle Over the Knee Socks from MyTights.com?

They will definitely liven up your outfits and prevent you from feeling too sad about the nights drawing in this month!

Fearne Cotton proves you can wear socks with sandals

It’s always one of the big fashion debates come summer – can you wear socks with sandals and still look like a fashionista?

While Chloe Sevigny has always been a big fan of sporting cute women’s socks with open-toed shoes, many girls reckon it is the ultimate fashion faux pas and steer well clear.

However, we’re firmly in Chloe’s camp, particularly after seeing new evidence from Fearne Cotton this weekend in the Daily Mail.

The Radio 1 DJ was spotted out and about in denim shorts and a stripy top, along with purple strappy wedges and ankle socks.

She looked great and the socks definitely added an indie edge to an outfit that could otherwise have looked quite ordinary.

Fearne’s socks were black, but we would have loved to have seen her sport a pattern to complement those stripes on her top. Celeste Stein’s Ruby Stripes Ankle Socks – available from MyTights.com – have red vertical lines and would make a bold fashion statement for any indie chick.

La Cotton has certainly been working the hosiery of late – she was also spotted recently with Alesha Dixon in LA wearing wet lookleggings and a neon pink top.

Check Fearne out in her cute socks here.

Fearne looks festival fabulous in floaty dress with leggings

Fearne Cotton pulled off festival chic over the weekend, looking cool but ready for changeable weather on the Isle of Wight.

The Radio 1 DJ, who recently climbed Mount Kilimanjaro for Comic Relief, headed to the Isle of Wight festival in a typically kooky bowler hat, a blue polka dot dress, biker boots and black leggings.

Her clever choice of outfit meant that she was covered should it be sunny, but wouldn’t get mud up her legs if it turned suddenly showery!

For the ultimate in comfortable legwear – which is what you really need when it comes to festivals this summer – check out the MbyM Go Green Carolina leggings from MyTights.com.

Thanks to being made from 95 per cent MicroModal they are super-soft, plus their materials come from sustainably-managed forests so wearing them won’t cost the earth!

They are a longer length and are slightly sheer, so would be perfect with a summer dress and boots like Fearne’s.
