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

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

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.

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!

Review: Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights

Reviewer Emma  pamela-mann-fishnets
Product Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights
Range N/A
Colour Chocolate
Size One size (I’m a size 10 in trousers)
Price £5.00
Colour Comments (if applicable) N/A
Appearance comments They look very small when you first put them on, but the material is extremely stretchy. You just have to keep pulling (carefully!)
Appearance Score 9/10
Feel comments The textured structure of these net tights feels great to the touch. Considering that I had to wriggle into them, I’m impressed that even after my evening chocolate binge, the flat waistband still felt really comfortable. Clearly these tights 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 10/10
Fit comments The tights were a touch on the small side but net tights do allow for more flexibility so it wasn’t a problem.
Fit out of ten 7/10
Value for Money Comments As with many nets, these fishnets are strong enough to wear again and again so you’ll definitely get a lot of wear out of them.
Value for Money out of ten 8/10
So, Does it Work? N/A
General comments Good value fishnets available in a wide range of colours.

Stars Get Full On Fishnet Fever

jesy-littlemix-fishnets-resizedWe’ve been seeing the signs for a while – a celeb spotting here and there, a press feature every so often.  But over the last month or so, it seems it’s official: fishnets are in again.  Sure, there has been the odd sighting, and perhaps we should have known it was coming – after all we lost count of the amount of times we saw nude fishnet tights in place of sheers over the summer, and stars like Beyoncé and Rihanna have been rocking them on stage for ages.  But it’s only recently that we’ve seen the trend come into full force, with fishnets on the catwalk and – more importantly – on the legs of celebs and everyday women around us.

Little Mix’s Jesy Nelson might be busy taking America by storm, but she still finds time to coordinate some fierce fashion looks.  Her and the other girls are known and loved for their bold fashion choices, so while not all of us will be able to pull off the fishnets-tartan-leather combo, we can take note and incorporate them into our looks.  For a subtler way of flaunting your fishnets and still tapping into the grunge trend, try punky accessories – a tartan bag, leather jacket or studded boots – with a classic tailored shift, or soft cotton jersey dress.

Get Jesy’s Look: The Trasparenze Rita Fishnet Tights have a slightly wider net, just like Jesy’s, and come in a rainbow of shades for those that dare to go beyond classic black.

 

Showing us how to work fishnets and leather and still look elegant, Georgia May Jagger was snapped as she left Claridge’s a couple of weeks ago modelling her own version of the “London look”.  Teaming classic fishnet tights with point heels, leather skirt AND jacket, she finished the look with a colourful silk scarf tied around her neck and smoky eye make up.  We’ll be swapping the leather jacket for a silky cream blouse to avoid overdoing the leather.

Get Georgia’s Look: The Levante Fishnet Tights are made with classic Italian design and come in nude for the summer months, too.

julia-roberts-fishnets

 

Even the mega A-List is getting in on the action.  Hollywood superstar Julia Roberts was featured on the cover of Vanity Fair’s annual awards season issue.  In a spread shot by Annie Leibovitz, the star was pictured sitting on Idris Elba’s lap (lucky Julia), flanked by 12 Years a Slave’s Chiwetel Ejifor and Hollywood bachelor George Clooney.  Wearing a tux jacket, high heels and – you guessed it – fishnet tights, the Pretty Woman star might have missed out on the Oscar for Best Supporting Actress, but she’s definitely a strong contender for Best Dressed Legs.

Get Julia’s Look: We recommend adding some cocktail shorts, but anything with a seam with help you get that Chicago-style glamour – try the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Backseam Tights.

 

As if we needed any more proof of the Return of the Net, it turned up yet again on the LFW AW14 catwalks – notably at Jean Paul Gaultier where nets and lace featured heavily, and at Tom Ford where the models wore fishnet tights with pencil skirts and knee high boots.  We’ll be using the show as our autumn workwear inspiration, and teaming suede pencil skirts with boots, fishnets and soft, luxe long sleeved t-shirts.

Get the Catwalk Look:  A high end looks needs high end accessories – the Falke Net Tights are a great example of classic design from a luxury brand.

So whether you go for wide net, coloured, classic or hold ups, you heard it here first: fishnets are well and truly BACK.

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…

Great Scot! Little Mix’s Jessie Nelson in Tartan Triumph

jesy-littlemix-fishnets-resizedThey’ve made a name for themselves as the X-factor-turned-superstar girlband that are taking the world by storm with their catchy songs, girl power attitude and bold fashion choices.  And the latter was certainly in evidence yesterday morning as the girls showed up at the Radio One studios for a catch up with breakfast show DJ Nick Grimshaw, with a super-svelte Jesy Nelson arriving in an on trend tartan-led look.

Wearing a black minidress with mesh panelling and matching a bold red lip to the red check shirt she had tied casually around her waist, the Little Mix starlet finished the look with a quartet of punky accessories: leather jacket, cut out booties, studded bag and fishnet tights.

Wearing a minidress and red check shirt with lashings of leather shouldn’t work, but somehow on her it does!  Tartan is the print of the moment, and Jesy makes the most of the look, giving us major wardrobe envy.  The addition of fishnets to the ensemble is hardly surprising – the Little Mix girls are huge fans of statement tights (they’ve all been snapped in various styles of suspender tights), and with Jesy reportedly losing 2 stone in weight it’s no wonder she wants to show off her pins.

We bet she was glad when she’d decided to get her legs out when she spotted Perrie and Leigh-Anne wearing identikit combos of high waisted boyfriend jeans, white tees, man coats, oversized bags and heels!

Want a bit of Jesy’s tartan triumph?  Get the look:

pamela-mann-fishnetstrasparenze-rita-fishnet

Classic fishnets like the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights will work with loads of other looks, too – and these come in a rainbow of colours so you can match them to everything in your wardrobe!

Get a look just like Jesy’s with the Trasparenze Rita Tights, which have a slightly larger net for a look just like Jesy’s.  A little too chilly for so much flesh on show?  Layer a secret pair of sheer tights underneaths for incognito coverage and hush hush heat.

Have you got a penchant for plaid or a fancy for fishnets?  Shop our tartan tights and fishnet hosiery for the Little Mix look!

Rihanna loves Fishnets!

levante_fishnetsRihanna is always unapologetic when it comes to her stunning outfit choices, and often they include one of our favourite wardrobe staples ? fishnets! We love how RiRi wears her foxy fishnets with monster levels of style.

On her way to the NYC nightspot, The Marquee, the fashion diva was recently photographed sauntering down the street in an R rated semi-sheer dark blue mini dress, black Louboutin heels and fishnets. And thanks to her (hopefully fake) brown mink coat and fishnets, RiRi was safe from the winter chill. Whilst, they?ll never rival 100 denier opaques for their warmth, fishnets do boast a small insulating factor, especially when woven with a layer of sheers.

Rihanna is not the only girl in the world who could pull off this look, to copy the Barbadian beauty?s style we recommend Levante Fishnet Tights. A classic pair of fishnets with medium size holes, providing you with sultry style. Without any visible reinforcement, you can feel free to flaunt any RiRi style super short hemlines you may desire.

Yet again the Umbrella hit maker brought out her fishnets for a different ensemble. This time matching fishnets with ripped jeans, she showed how it?s possible to combine two punk pieces for a dramatic effect. This look is perfect for those of you who wish to cover up a bit more. If a subtler look is what you?re after, then Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights are ideal. Woven with an additional layer of sheer fabric, these fishnets help to keep you warm during these freezing months.
