Alexa Chung braves Glasto mud in black opaques!


Alexa Chung

Its festival season and you can always count on Alexa Chung to know exactly what to wear to pull off the perfect boho look, mud included! This weekend was no different, being spotted at Glastonbury with her pals in a pair of black opaque tights, along with a double denim ensemble and olive green parka. Paired with the obligatory black Hunter boots, the TV presenter turned model looked fab and showed us all that it’s possible to look great after 5 days cramped in a tent! The best part about this look is you don’t need to be Alexa Chung or attend a festival to wear it. Simple, functional yet brimming with appeal, here’s how you can recreate her look at MyTights.com.


Pamela Mann 50 Denier OpaqueTights in Black

Black opaque tights have a knack of working with just about anything in your wardrobe. While Chung paired hers with denim shorts, they’ll also work with summery tea dresses, pencil dresses for the office or LBD’s for evening events. Luckily for you MyTights has a wide selection of black tights for you to choose from, so you too can rock an Alexa Chung-inspired look this summer!

Can’t decide? Don’t worry; MyTights have already picked out the best products for you. The Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights are a must-have for any wardrobe, and most importantly won’t break the bank at just £4.95 a pair. However, for such a wardrobe staple, you may want to splurge; in that case, Wolford Pure 50 Seamless Tights are the way to go, with their host of quality features and slick seamless design. Or for a great middle ground, how about the Oroblu Sensuel 30 Tights, with their semi opaque appearance that’s ideal for slightly sunnier festivals.

These are just a couple of the black opaques on offer at MyTights, but be sure to check out our entire selection before you leave!

Festival Fashion: Our Top Picks

Ankle Socks

Ankle Socks

Boho bangles and flower crowns… it could only mean one thing… it’s festival season! We all know if there’s ever a time to overload on accessories, it’s now. In fact, to really capture the bohemian festival look, accessories are a must, and what better way than with hosiery?

Should the sun have his hat on, we definitely know that less is more. For this reason, ankle socks can add the perfect finishing touch to your outfit and nail the ever popular layered look. Try a classic solid pair of Trasparenze Marta 70D Ankle Highs to peak out the tops of your ballet pumps and combat boots. Matched with a patterned pair of high-waisted shorts, you’ll stay cool and refreshed and look gorgeous to boot. We especially love the brighter shades for getting us in the festival spirit.

Kendal Jenner shows us that festivals are all about

 being bold with patterns. Though we’re aware that most of us can’t pull off high-waisted flares, we do know how to pull off prints. The Oroblu Butterfly Leggings for instance offer a mix of blue and cream colours with butterfly motifs. Making a statement while listening to your favourite bands – sounds like a pretty good day to us!


Two piece outfits have been all the rage of late and lucky for us, they’re perfect festival attire. To dress this look up the MyTights way, pair with cosy over the knee socks and slip on plimsoles. The Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks come in a wide range of colours to complement your co-ord to perfection.

Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups

Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups

The most important ingredient to a festival you ask? That’s right, glitter. Whether you sparkle with rhinestone jewels or get painted in gold henna, glitter is a must. To add more to your outfit, check out our glitter and shine range. Try the semi opaque Charnos 75 Ava Hold Ups for a hint of metallic glow that lines the back of each leg in floral print. Teamed with decorative body paint, there’ll be no stopping you from strealing the festival fashion crown.

You might be sleeping in a tent and odds are you haven’t showered for three days, but hosiery is always on hand to keep you looking fabulous!

Have a fantastic time, ladies.

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…
