Laura’s Choice: Plus Size

Shopping for tights on the high street can be a stressful task at the best of times (hence the birth of MyTights!), but it’s made worse by the fact that, even in 2015, the majority of stores seem to entirely overlook fuller figures. Motivated by our mission to find stylish hosiery for all, we’ve quite literally scoured the market to find the very best in plus size tights, hold ups and more, with styles accommodating hip sizes up to 60”. From everyday sheers through to tights that do more than meets the eye, you’ll find everything you need flatter your curves at MyTights.com…

 

Pretty Polly Curves Ladder Resist Tights

The everyday heroes

Head turning they may not be, but where would we be without our everyday styles? Giving us a classic look without meaning we have to survive on bread and water until payday, anyone on the lookout for affordable sheers should head to the Pretty Polly Curves (XXTRA) Ladder Resist Tights (3PP). With three pairs of 15 denier tights for just £6.50 a packet, they not only offer some slight coverage in warmer weather but are made from ladder resist technology to prevent snags from developing into ladders. Should your fashion ethos be ‘glamour 24/7’, take a look at the Oroblu Magie 20 Plus Size Tights, which feature a gorgeous glossy finish for a sophisticated look that can extend into evening events if need be. If hold ups are more your cup of tea, the Levante Sheer Fantasy Stay Ups are a must, available in four shades and with luxe lace tops.

Of course, everyday hosiery isn’t all about sheers, and knowing how the British weather can switch from heatwave to washout in a matter of days, it makes sense to always have a few pairs of inexpensive opaques to hand. For dress sizes up to a UK 32, flatter your curves in the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Plus Size Tights, with a purse friendly price tag and 7 funky shades. When it comes to dressing for that ‘in-between’ weather, semi-opaque styles are the way to go, with the Charnos XeLence 50D Plus Size Tights my top choice. Specially designed for fuller figures, these opaques come in three colours and boast special anti-chafing panels to keep you feeling comfortable with every wear.

 

Pamela Mann Plus Size Fishnet Tights

Never say no to fashion

Looking to get dressed up? A pair of fishnets is always a good idea, which brings us to the newest member of the MyTights warehouse – the Pamela Mann Plus Size Fishnet Tights. The fuller figured alternative to their regular fishnets, these tights are available in sizes ranging from 16-32 and in two classic shades. With their classic net design, they can also work to give your working wardrobe a little upgrade too, so they’re an incredibly versatile option. The mock suspenders trend has been an ever present ever since they burst on to the scene via Henry Holland a few years back, so grabbing a pair of the Pretty Polly Curves Suspender Tights makes perfect style sense, their 60/20 denier split and printed suspender straps. Also from the Curves range, make your mark on the spotty trend with the Dot Diamond Tights, with a scattering of diamonds across the entire leg and sizes up to an XXL.

 

A helping hand 

Long gone are the days where hosiery was just about keeping you warm, nowadays all of the brands are designing styles with hidden traits that most superheroes would be envious of. The success of the Aristoc Bodytoners range speaks for itself, so if you are looking for an extra helping hand to trim your figure without succumbing to a diet of spinach, head to the Opaque Toner Tights, which employ a top secret medium strength control top that works on your tum, bum and thighs.

Whether you spend 40 hours a week battling with a spreadsheet or find yourself on your feet for lengthy periods, it’s inevitable that your legs will start to feel tired and jaded. Combating lethargic legs and looking great to boot, the Levante Relax Firm Support Tights not only have a hidden control top but use graduated compression to boost circulation. There’s far less sensible (and headache inducing) ways to spend £12!

 

Falke Seidenglatt 15D Tights

Touch of luxury

A touch of luxury never hurt anybody, and with hosiery it’s often the case that you get what you pay for. So if you are seeking a little refinement for your legs, I love the Falke Seidenglatt 15D Tights, which come in no less than shades. Suitable for hips of up to 56”, they boast a shiny finish that’s great for evening do’s and an adjustable waistband that can sit as high or low as feels right for you. Finishing off my plus size selection are the Wolford Velvet De Luxe 66 Tights, which, in true Wolford fashion feel velvety soft to the touch, and come with a 66 denier weight that’s fab for ridding your winter blues.

 

Until next time…

Hosiery: This weeks looks!

Despite the sweltering temperatures we’ve been having, it hasn’t stopped the stars turning to hosiery to complete their looks. While we’d forgive anyone for going bare legged in the 35°C we endured this week, it seems that hosiery is still very much on the agenda, so we’ve rounded up our favourite styles from the last week, and shown you how you can recreate them in an instant.

 

Hilary Duff

Trasparenze Graphium Leggings

Trasparenze Graphium Leggings

Beginning with Hilary Duff, the 27 year actress come singer is slowly developing into a new hosiery hero for us, having already been snapped in fishnets just a few weeks back. Now for mere mortals, a day running errands usually means an altogether unflattering outfit, but not Hilary, who pulled out a fabulous pair of patterned leggings for a trip to the dry cleaners. Pairing her leggings with a statement tee, trainers and a fresh face, the look radiated effortless cool, and we loved how her leggings introduced geometric prints in to her outfit. Want to copy her look? A great option are the Trasparenze Graphium Leggings, with a colourful paisley print and choice of two colours. Perfect for wearing with summery vests and longline tees when the temperatures rise. But if you wanted something that makes even more of a statement, the Fleur De Lis Leggings from Pamela Mann are a must, with their flower of the lily print and slight sheen finish.

Now for a very different look from former fashion model Sophie Dahl, who last night turned out at the star studded Serpentine Gallery bash. With attendees including Kate Hudson, Lara Stone and Fearne Cotton, the crown for our style star went to Sophie, who teamed a sixties style spotty minidress with peep toe heeled boots and black fishnet tights. Giving her sweet dress a rock chick twist, mirror her look with the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights in black, opting for the brighter shades if you’re feeling experimental. Or for fishnets with a difference, check out the Oroblu April Tights, which combine an alluring side seam with tricot effect.

Fab in Fishnets – Alesha Dixon

Alesha Dixon

Alesha Dixon

 

While the emphasis may have been on the latest bunch of hopefuls competing in the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent, something else stood out for the MyTights team during last night’s results show. Taking to the stage for the first time in 4 years (time flies!), judge Alesha Dixon showed all the contestant how it’s done, with an all-singing, all-dancing rendition of her latest single. As catchy a tune as it may be, our favourite thing about the performance were her fishnet tights! It’s fair to say her extravagant two-piece was probably a little too risqué for a trip to the shops, but we loved her choice of legwear, so much so that we’ve rounded up our favourite fishnet fancies on offer. Perfect for this time of year, fishnets should form part of a summer capsule for any fashion-conscious lady. Here’s our top 5!

Levante Fishnet Tights

Levante Fishnet Tights

The classic

If it’s a classic net you’re after à la Alesha, the Levante Fishnet Tights are the perfect place to start, with two timeless shades and purse-friendly price. Every woman should own a pair like these, not only slotting seamlessly into your evening wear but your office wardrobe to boot.

The colourful

While we’d never turn our noses up at a pair of black fishnets, sometimes only a splash of colour will liven up our outfits. Fashion favourites Pamela Mann agree, with their Fishnet Tights, available in 9 colours, ranging from the safety of black through to Flo Yellow.

 

 

Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights

The Fashion Forward

As great as classic nets are, fishnets are forever being reinvented, and never more so than with the Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights, with a unique curved net that reminds us of the art deco period. Or if seams are your weakness, take a look at the Oroblu April Tights, with a side seam stretching along the outside leg compelte with attractive tricot effect.

The hold ups

It’s not only tights on offer at MyTights. If you prefer the look and feel of hold ups, treating yourself to the Pamela Mann Fishnet Hold Ups is a must, with their classic design and elegant lace tops. And just £5 a pair!

Nets never go out of fashion, so make sure you check out our complete range of fishnets before you depart.

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

 While the weather might be feeling a little Jekyll and Hyde of late, with next week comes the beginning of June, which means one thing – its summer! Finally, it’s time to relegate your opaques to the back of the drawer, stock up on the suncream and bask in the rays of summer heatwaves (we hope!) The key to owning a summer wardrobe to be proud of lies in stocking up on staple items that will ensure you always have something suitable for the occasion. Whether for sun-soaked holidays, garden parties or the obligatory Saturday afternoon BBQ, MyTights are on hand to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch!

 

 

Staple: Floral

Where: Garden parties, BBQs, nights out

Often considered to be the epitome of a summer style, floral prints are as big as ever this season, but MyTights being MyTights, we have everything you could possibly need. For a classic floral print, check out the Oroblu Elaine Tights, with a lace-like floral effect running across a tulle base. Or for something a little more quirky, you’ll adore the Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights, with a striking side seam made up of brightly coloured floral motifs.

Listen up: no summer wardrobe is complete without pair of nude fishnet tights! Whether worn with sweet summer dresses or even in the workplace, nude fishnets are perfect for adding some interest to an otherwise bland outfit and keeping you feeling refreshed. The Levante Fishnet Tights in Naturel are perfect, opting for the Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights if you prefer a smaller net.

Staple: Pastels

Where: Weekend lunches, picnics

What would summer be without pastel hues? From chic lemon through to pretty pink, pastel colours are everywhere this season, so it makes sense to stock up. For a plethora of pastel hues, check out the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights, or the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks.

Staple: Ankle Socks

TOWIE Do Fancy Dress!

Lydia Bright

Here at MyTights.com, we love nothing more than getting into character for a fancy dress bash! When it comes to fancy dress, we’re of the opinion that if you’re going to do it, do it right, which is why we loved these photos of the cast of TOWIE at their Mad Hatters themed party. Still going strong after 14 series filled with drama, romance and the infamous ‘SHUTUUUUP’, what we loved most about the fancy dress efforts was the amount of hosiery in sight!

Not least by TOWIE’s very own fashionista Lydia Bright, who completed her Alice in Wonderland attire with a fittingly sweet pair of white ankle socks. She may have been in fancy dress, but we heart her cute socks, and it’s a look we know we’ll be wearing with our summer hemlines when the weather heats up a bit. For a similarly sweet look, take a look at the Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks, with an embossed floral print and pretty scalloped tops. Or if it’s something a little quirkier you’re after, opt for the Trasparenze Sommerfugl Socks, with their ever so playful mix of spots and bows.

Fran Parman

 

Moving on now to Fran Parman, again opting for ankle socks to complete her fairy tale look. If you’ve fallen for her baby blue look, recreate it with the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Cielo! Perfect with summery dresses and skater skirts, it’s the ideal way to add something new to your wardrobe without breaking the bank.

 

Jasmin Walia

 

It wasn’t only socks on show, either, with Jasmin Walia opting for a pair of vampy fishnets to finish off her edgy Queen of Hearts look. If you’re finding yourself drawn to her choice of legwear, why not copy it with the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights, making for a great alternative to your sheers and coming in 10 vibrant colours.

Essex isn’t always known for its style, but the TOWIE cast sure know a thing or two about chic hosiery!

Try Out Stockings à la Madonna & Taylor Swift!

Madonna & Taylor in their fab stockings!

Madonna & Taylor in their fab stockings!

 

Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

We love nothing more than when two of our favourite music stars join forces; it always makes for a brilliant pop song. Eminem and Rihanna, Nelly & Kelly, the list goes on. Now it’s the turn of none other than Madonna and Taylor Swift to set the airwaves alight and produce a new song that we’ll undoubtedly have in our heads for months to come. Performing their much anticipated single Ghost Town at the iHeartMusic Radio Awards, it seems that it’s not just musical talent that the pair have in common, with both the undisputed queen of pop and current golden girl Swift performing in matching stockings!

In her first public performance since THAT fall at the Brit Awards and opting to play it safe and sit on a stool (wise move!), Madonna layered her black stockings over a pair of trademark fishnets, finishing off her vampy look with knee high leather boots and a rather odd corseted outfit. Taylor’s outfit, on the other hand, was a slightly more classic affair, wearing her lovely lace top stockings with a sleeveless black dress and knee high lace up boots. Two very different looks with one thing in common, the performance confirmed exactly what we knew – stockings are back. Are you loving their legwear? If you are, MyTights.com have a fantastic array of stockings on offer, be it winter-warming opaques or racy fishnets, so there’s no reason why you can’t replicate it should you wish…

If it’s a classic pair of sheer stockings a la Taylor you’re after, a great place to start is with the Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings. Near on identical to Swifty, the lace top adds instant glamour to your wardrobe, while the slight sheen finish is great for perfecting a polished evening look. Whether you follow Taylor’s lead and opt for an LBD or play it casual in a pair of denim shorts and statement tee, these are a fabulous (not to mention affordable) choice. Looking for something that’s a little more everyday? No problem, simply turn your attention to the brilliant Charnos Elegance Ultra Sheer Stockings, a case of the name speaking for itself, with their classic plain top and understated sheen. Great for the office, they’ll only set you back £6.25 a pair.

While we’d suggest accessorising your stockings with something a little more demure than Madonna herself, there’s no denying that her layered fishnet tights added some wow factor to her look. To mirror this, how about treating yourself to the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Stockings? All the sultry appeal of stockings but with a classic fishnet base to get everyone talking, there’s no easier way to give your simple evening wear an edgy twist!

Fallen hook, line and sinker for sultry stockings? Make sure you cast your eyes over our full range!

Laura’s Choice – 20% off Birthday Promo!

Another year older and another fabulous year in the world of hosiery! It’s my birthday this week, and while I’ll certainly enjoy a glass of red wine or two to toast the occasion, our new promo means it won’t only be me who has reason to celebrate. That’s right, to mark my birthday, we’ll be offering 20% off my favourite 20 hosiery styles! Ranging from classic essentials through to the latest fashion additions, all you need to do to get your hands on the brilliant discount is enter the promo code BDAY20 on the basket page – but beware, there’s no time to hang around, with the offer ending at midnight (GMT) on Tuesday 3rd March! You’re probably wondering why these styles in particular have made the shortlist, right? Now, I’m not going to list all 20 styles in the mix, but if you are intrigued to know what makes these stand out from the crowd, I suggest you stay tuned…

BASICS – the foundation to a thousand looks!

Laura rocking her Wolford Satin de Luxe!

Laura rocking her Wolford Satin de Luxe!

They may not be as eye-catching as some of the patterned legwear on the list, but where would we be without our basics? The key to unlocking an abundance of stylish looks, I believe that every woman should own a collection of quality pieces which form the core of our wardrobe. Speaking of which, the Wolford Satin De Luxe simply have to get a mention. I’ve always been a fan of tights with a high gloss, and these opaque tights fit the bill perfectly, not only keeping me warm on evenings out but coming with a very shiny finish and backseam capable of adding a certain je ne sais quoi to any look. A must if you’re a social butterfly! If something a little more conservative is your usual point of call, it has to be the Falke Warm Deluxe Tights. Thick, wearable and as soft as kittens, these 80 denier tights come in nearly every colour under the sun (7, to be exact), all of which work to keep your legs effortlessly cosy thanks to an innovative soft plush technique that actively traps in the heat. Of course, they also come with the horde of quality features that Falke as a brand are famed for! From one luxury brand to another, the second Wolford product that’s made the cut are the Wolford Satin 50 Opaque Tights. Similar to the Satin De Luxe but with a more demure slight sheen finish, these 50 denier tights are in my eyes, the perfect opaque. Whether for a day in the office or after work drinks, the astonishingly smooth finish and choice of four hues make these everything you could possibly need from a pair of everyday tights– what could be better?

 

COLOUR – all you need to brighten your days!

Pamela Mann 80 Denier Tights - Turquoise Blue!

Pamela Mann 80 Denier Tights – Turquoise Blue!

I’ve got a bit of a confession to make. I might have founded a hosiery company, but like many women, I’ve often been guilty in the past of sticking to classic black tights. That is, of course, until I started to experiment with colour, and it’s safe to say I’ve never looked back, so much so that I’ve often been described as having the wackiest dressed legs in the capital! Of all the styles that have ever graced the MyTights warehouse, one of my all time favourites are the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights. I’m not ashamed to admit I own a pair of each of the four available colours, and why wouldn’t I? Incredibly thick, luxurious and having that shiny glow I adore, these 70 denier tights deliver both fashion and function, and what’s more, are virtually indestructible. Shopping on a budget? You can enjoy colour too, 20 of them to be exact…and it’s all thanks to the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Tights. The very best way to update your look and have change left over from a ten pound note, these 80 denier tights are perfect for jazzing up your basic pieces. If you like these but prefer something with a little more longevity, turn your attention to the Jonathan Aston Finesse Tights, with all the appeal of bright colours but made with 65% cotton for a skin-friendly feel and everyday luxury.

FASHION – it’s time to experiment!

We love the Jonathan Aston Magma Tights!

We love the Jonathan Aston Magma Tights!

I’m a big fan of how fashion tights can make something you’ve had languishing in your wardrobe for years look unrecognisable. Anyone who knows me will know I love my fishnet tights. Ideal for when the weather is too warm for sheers but you still want to decorate your legs, I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for the charms of the Trasparenze Rita Tights, Made with a larger net than average, these fishnets are rare in that they come in 7 colours. A fashion statement in their own right, I also love to layer mine over sheers and coloured opaques to add a little customisation to my look. Brand new for SS15, the Jonathan Aston Magma Tights immediately caught my eye, so much so that I’ve already nabbed a pair for myself. Fun and quirky, there sheer tights come complete with a graphic inspired print to make any wardrobe piece look as good as new. It’s early days, but my prediction is that the MyTights office will be seeing a lot more of these over the course of the next few months. From the fun to the exquisite, the next addition to my top 25 is the Wolford Josephina Tights, and it will only take a single glance to see why! Yet another case of Wolford doing something that little bit different, these sheer tights come with a sumptuous quilted panel on the outside leg for a unique take on the seam trend.

SHEER – summer is on the way!

Trying out all the gorgeous sheer tights that have made their way into MyTights HQ, I’ve spent a lot of time over the last few years persuading my friends that I AM actually wearing tights. One of my favourite styles are the Wolford Sheer 15 Tights, amongst the best out there for cheating your way to a bare legged look. Made in a flattering matte finish and with two skintone shades on offer, they have a  smooth silky texture that feels utterly exquisite against the leg. If you prefer something even more lightweight, another option are the Pretty Polly Naturals 5D Sideria Tights. Your eyes aren’t deceiving you; these really are only 5 denier! Well, in appearance at least, as these tights have been made with Sideria yarn, sourced from Japan and giving these silky soft tights the robustness of a higher denier. A real gem to have in your hosiery drawer!

As wonderful as these styles are, I’ve barely touched the surface, with no less than 9 other top picks included in the promotion. It may not be your birthday, but I just couldn’t help but share some of the birthday cheer to all of our lovely customers. I’m off to cut the cake, but you should shop the whole selection here…

Until next time…

Laura’s Choice: Picture Perfect Party Tights

It’s that time of year where tuxedos and party dresses don’t look out of place on a Tuesday evening on the tube; it can be only be the party season! And the parties really do come thick and fast in the next few weeks, be it a work gathering, Christmas drinks with the girls, not forgetting the biggest night of them all – New Years Eve. With a social calendar that busy, most of us don’t have the time (or budget) to buy a brand new outfit for each event. But fret not – hosiery is a fantastic and inexpensive way of  revamping and adding a new dimension to a wardrobe classic. With this in mind, I thought it would be a great idea if I rounded up a selection of my favourite party tights for your upcoming soirees!

Purse-friendly

Fish net tights

I think there’s a misconception that creating a statement legwear look has to cost a fortune, but this really isn’t the case. A top recommendation of mine for achieving stand-out style on a budget is the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights. Available in an incredible 21 shades, it’s near on impossible not to find a pair to complement your outfit. What’s more, with  their flattering matte finish and sheer to waist brief, they offer a great deal of versatility for your party wardrobe, looking fabulous regardless of whether you favour a flirty mini or a fitted knee-length number. My favourites are the dark teal and rust – perfect with a classic LBD! Should you want legwear to give your look a racy twist, you really can’t go wrong with the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights. Fishnet tights are a fantastic way of adding a sexy element to an outfit, whilst still retaining an elegant edge, and these ones   have a timeless chic design that will work seamlessly with cocktail dresses. Why not also add a vibrant pair of heels for a pop of colour? Even better, they’re just £6 a pair, leaving you with change for a glass of vino or two.

Legwear for your work party

It’s often tricky to find the right mix between looking great and maintaining professionalism for work events. You want to feel confident and channel an on-trend look, but at the same time you want to dress appropriately for the context – it can be a nightmare! For me, the Oroblu Delices Tights are the perfect combination between chic and professional, featuring an overlapping diamond design and sheer panels that work together to create a visual effect that’s nothing short of stunning.  The key with these is to let your legwear do all of the talking, so opt for a pair of simple heeled sandals and an A-line dress and you’re set! Or if your work party is a little more glitzy, look in the direction of the Trasparenze Deejay Tights, which have an all-over

Trasparenze Deejay Tights

Trasparenze Deejay Tights

glittery fleck against an opaque black backdrop. Guaranteed to satisfy your inner magpie, you’re also able to choose between gold and silver glitter to match your accessories to a tee. Following on with the sparkly theme (why not?), another option is the Charnos Lurex Spot Opaque Tights, with an array of symmetrical glittery dots and 40 denier matte finish. Allowing you to channel two of this season’s hottest trends – polkadots and embellishment, in one outfit, the shine with these is actually rather subtle, so they’re also a great versatile choice for dinners and drinks with the girls.

New Years Eve 

December 31st is that one night a year where it’s a crime to be curled up in front of the television in your pyjamas. The biggest social night of the year warrants some fabulous tights, right? Right. So say hello to 2015 in style in the Pretty Polly Delightful Pretty Flirty Backseam Tights, which have a slender backseam and exquisite lace effect panty and heel for the ultimate in special occasion legwear.  Full of personality and sex appeal; go for all out glamour in a sequined mini and statement heels! Or if you love the retro look of backseams but crave even more glamour, I love the Moulin Rouge Metallic Seam Tights, with their embellished backseam and chic Cuban heel. Even better, they won’t break the bank, so there’s no need to feel guilty! If these are up your street, you’ll also love the Trasparenze Melantis Tights, which are just made for glitzy evening events. Starting at the mid thigh, these sheer tights have a gorgeous metallic backseam, made up of an array of tiny diamantes and merging into a pretty floral effect at the ankle.  A real lesson in opulence! If seams aren’t your thing, I’d also like to point you in the direction of the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Tights, with an intricate floral lace design for a classic legwear look that screams elegance and sophistication. A real lesson in opulence!

Tights for the kids

Pex sparkle tights

Pex sparkle tights

It’s not only us adults who feel the pressure to look good at this time of year! Your little ones are also bound to have a packed social calendar, and let’s face it, Christmas school discos ARE a big deal at that age. To avoid any unwanted tantrums, opt for the Country Kids Movie Star Tights, with a lurex star pattern that your daughter will just love. They’re also extra durable, with a reinforced toe and boxer brief, so you can rest assured that they’ll last for next year’s event, too! If she takes after her mummy, she’ll also be a sucker for a bit of sparkle. With this in mind, the Pex Sparkle Children’s Tights may be just the ticket for parties and end of term shindigs, with their metallic thread and super-shiny finish!

If none of these are right for your outfit, be sure to check out our entire range of party tights and socks before you leave!

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.
