What MyTights Wore – Halloween Special!

Happy Halloween! The annual Fright Fest has come around once more, meaning that our choice of hosiery takes a frightful turn. From cobwebs to gothic motiffs, we’ve embraced them all as legwear becomes the easiest way to add a little spook and scare to an outfit. Just take a look see!


Gothic gets a glamorous makeover as Pamela Mann create the Sheer Crosses Tights. Subtle enought to wear to work and then to the bar, copy Suzanne’s chic style and team yours with an all-black outfit.


Layering your hosiery is a shortcut to Halloween kudos, as netted tights are brought to life with coloured opaques. Krys has layered hers over a pair of Jonathan Aston 40D Opaques in ‘Scarlet’ – equal parts snug & spooky!


Whether you love or hate them, there’s no denial that spiders are a must have Halloween motiff. To get Nix’s look, wear fishnet tights underneath patterned sheers for a bewitching touch.

Halloween Is Nearly Here!

741_nph_425Halloween is quickly approaching and I’m sure the little ones are starting to get really excited! Some celebrities are already starting to share pictures of their little kids all dressed up for the holiday. Neil Patrick Harris of the show How I Met Your Mother recently posted an adorable pic of this family in Alice in Wonderland themed costumes. The precious little Harper was dressed up as Alice, wearing some cosy-looking white children’s tights!

Tights can be pretty crucial on Halloween. Costumes can be so skimpy for little kids, some tights like Country Kids Warmer Cotton Children’s tights can help keep their legs warm! They come in plenty of colours so they’ll be sure to match whatever costume your little one wears, and come in a range of sizes for any age child – from newborn to 11 years. The lighter colours can be great for a little princess costume, or try a darker colour for a scary outfit!

No matter what your little girl decides to dress up as this year, tights will be sure keep her warm and cosy – and looking great as well!

Laura?s Choice ? Hosiery fit for a fright fest!

When it comes to the annual fright fest, all things weird & wonderful go. From the downright frightful to the more subdued, October 31st is embraced by all as the occasion to bypass inhibitions and wear whatever your heart desires. In fact, the only thing frowned upon is a last minute costume! Given that a slosh of fake blood and dab of white face powder just won?t do, I?ve rounded up the best of the bunch when it comes to Halloween hosiery…Pamela Mann Twicker Tights

Wicked Witches

Whether you?ve chosen to go full on coven or you?re allowing clever accessories to work their magic, witches are a hallow-classic. To keep your attire authentic, invest in a pair of stripy tights, taking care that the stripes travel horizontal. As a rule, I believe the brighter the colour, the better. Great for neon pops, the Twicker Tights from Pamela Mann come in six different variations, ensuring that when it comes to bewitching hosiery, everything?s taken care of. For a knee-high version, try the Pamela Mann Striped Over Knee Socks. Adore the stripes but you?re not keen on that fake nose? Any character from a Tim Burton film is a surefire hit, so for the ultimate Beetlejuice tribute dress pins in Solid Sheer Striped Tights from Pamela Mann. Add a slick of black lipstick to complete the look and voila! Equal parts scary & chic!

Gothic Glam

Think less frightful and more fabulous as gothic gets a glam makeover. Anything with crosses on is a given, along with a choker necklace and translucent skin tone so reclaim that black mini dress from your wardrobe and let your tights do the talking. For a touch of grunge, Pamela Mann has given the suspender tights a makeover, adding gothic crosses to their Cross Suspender Tights. If you?re after something more delicate, then the Sheer Crosses Tights from Pamela Mann are a must! Made from a lightweight 10 denier, these feature small crosses throughout. The ultimate finishing touch to any outfit, make sure to keep your hemline flirty to reveal the macabre detail and stick to an all-black colour palette for extra spooky points. For even more warmth (it is October after all!), wear the Mary Portas & Charnos Fishnet Armery underneath any short sleeves, letting the clever design vamp up your outfit even more.Celeste Stein Skulls

Theatrical Terrors

For those who want to secure the ?best dressed? accolade this year, your costume needs to be bigger and better than ever. So stray away from the norm and instead add spook appeal to your favourite onstage character or personality. A zombie Dorothy from Wizard of Oz? A murdered member of West Side Story? Whatever your preference, add old time charm with a vintage back seam or a pair of sultry stockings.? Sassy & packed full of style, the Seam and Heel Lycra tights from Jonathan Aston will help clock up fashion kudos during the fright fest. Great at elongating legs, the retro tights will also help keep you warm when you decided to forgo the coat! For a stand out style, the Pamela Mann Jive Seamed Stockings in red look fab when worn with all black and are perfect for that Chicago tribute. Simply add towering heels and a slick of red lipstick for a glamorous touch. If a ghostly Christine from Phantom of the Opera is more your style, then lacy tights are your answer. Providing a whimsical touch underneath that ball gown, the Victorienne Tights from Wolford combine floral charm with a seductive net. What?s more, these tights can be worn to brunch the next day with a shift dress, making them quite the steal!

For those celebrating Halloween during the day, earn scary credentials by wearing the Celeste Stein Black & Grey Skull Tights underneath that black wrap dress, stepping in chunky ankle boots for a rock chick edge. Subtle but spooky, these are bound to get admiring glances…

Happy Halloween ladies!

Until next time…
