Style File: Sarah Silverman

A few weeks back, controversial American comedian Sarah Silverman graced our television sets, making an appearance on the Graham Norton show alongside Mark Wahlberg. Questions over Wahlberg’s tipsy state were raised, but the one thing that wasn’t questioned was Silverman’s hosiery style – we adore it!!

Making a point to stand up

and show off her fab pins, the raven haired beauty confessed her loved for all things tight related. In turn, we’re now confessing our love for her enviable tights collection, as we took a look back at our favourite Sarah ensembles, quickly realising that the mock hold up style appears to be her forte.

With all the fun of a hold up, but combined with the warmth of sheer tights, these are the most versatile style around! Perfect for adding that flirty spirit to any outfit, these look just as great dressed down in converse as they do in heels.

Feeling inspired? Make like Silverman and build your collection today – with a little help from MyTights of course!

For a subtle style that’s office friendly, but can be dressed up when the sun goes down, try to the Pamela Mann Over Knee Stripe Tights. The opaque mock hold up adds a touch of coverage for your pins (perfect for any leftover chill in the air) whilst the additional stripe above knee adds a sweet touch. For those who want to collect serious fashion brownie points, take the lead from Brit designer Henry Holland and pull on a pair of the Reverse Spot Over The Knee Tights. Along with turning heads, this look-at-me design will secure your place in the leg limelight.

And for those who want to take this particular design to the next level, the Pretty Polly Cheeky Coloured Suspender & Knicker Tights are just the ticket. Both pretty and playful, these have charm by the bucket load, thanks to a faux-knicker and brightly coloured tops. Team with a flirty hemline and a smile, adding quirky accessories to complete the look.

Sarah, Queen of funny and hosiery enthusiast– we salute you!

Spotted in the Metro: Henry Holland Tights!

Another day, another fashionista declaring their love for House of Holland hosiery.  This time it was fashion writer and stylist Alex Gardner, who was feature in Metro newspaper’s fashion segment “What I Wear”.  She styled a vintage yellow sweatshirt with an all-black combo of beret, tube skirt and booties, and of course the star of the show – the Henry Holland Reverse Polka Dot Mock Hold Up Tights.

We extolled the virtues of these Henry Holland tights way back in August when they first arrived, and we’re thrilled they’ve been given the bona fide fashionista stamp of approval.  As Alex shows, styling is easy when you know how.  These are statement tights so she’s kept the rest of the outfit simple, avoiding a fussy skirt and keeping it all black with just one pop of colour from her batwing jumper. The amount of pattern is perfectly balanced, too, with just the sides and sleeves of the jumper covered in the striking design – which

is mirrored by the polka dot pattern on her legs which stops just above the knee.  This is a fashion bunny who really knows her stuff!

Henry Holland is no stranger to quirky mock suspender designs – in fact it was the designer himself that pioneered the classic suspender design, and since then he has come up with countless reincarnations the style to satisfy

our hunger for fresh fashion ideas.  Now you can get your suspender tights with a multitude of twists, from a jagged zig zag top or gingham patterned leg to a pretty mock lace top or sexy backseam.

Not 100% sure about suspenders but hankering after statement tights?  Look no further – Henry Holland does loads of head turning non-suspender styles like the Reverse Star Tights, which feature sheers stars on a 60 denier opaque background.  Or check out our collection of patterned tights for a look to suit, whatever your style.

The Girls Are Back in Town!

That’s right, our favourite five piece since the Backstreet Boys are back to what they do best and have kicked off their reunion tour with a bang. Complete with sequins, glitter and some rather strange feathered wings, the girls have joined forces once more to give fans an anniversary show to remember. Starting off in Newcastle, it’s clear they’ve set the standards high for the rest of the eight week tour. But it wasn’t the harmonies or Cheryl’s (questionable) new back tattoo we were focused on…it was Nicola Robert’s arms!

Looking fabulous and fierce, the girls changed into metallic basque style dresses and nude fishnets for a part of their set, proving just why they’re an office favourite. It was only then that we noticed that the 27 year old fashionista (and close confidante of designer Henry Holland) was modelling none other than some armery! Possibly one of the most forward thinking uses of hosiery fabric yet, armery was created for those of us who want to keep our arms under wraps when out and about. Great for layering underneath dresses and tees for a faux long sleeve, they add warmth and coverage to any ensemble. What’s more, you can style them over strapless & sleeveless dresses if you’re mindful of feeling too exposed.

 It seems Nicola has done just this, adding a chic black number to complement her stage ensemble. To

get the redhead’s savvy style, try the Mary Portas & Charnos Plain Armery. With four fab shades to choose from, including Nicole’s black, there is an armery option  for every wardrobe. Whether you wish to match or clash, let the hosiery sleeves sculpt & define your arms for a stage worthy look.

And if you have a penchant for pattern, these clever sleeves also come in a fishnet version and a floral one too!

So take your cue from the pop princesses themselves and get the look now, back tattoos not compulsory…

Put a Spring in Your Step With Pretty Polly & Henry Holland SS13 Collections

There’s no denying that Pretty Polly is one of the most well-known names in the world of hosiery for a reason.  Keeping our pins perfected and protected since 1919, they have successfully navigated the fine line between keeping their older customers happy with a constant catalogue of amazing basics, while bringing their fashion tights collections to a new hosiery audience.  The proof is in the pudding, and with Beyoncé’s Superbowl backing dancers

clad in Pretty Polly’s secret socks collection, no one could question that Pretty Polly have still got their finger firmly on the fashion pulse.

We shouldn’t be surprised, then, that their spring/summer range is nothing less than all out fabulous.  Butterfly prints are set to be HUGE in the coming months, and the Fly Flutterby Tattoo Tights feature a gorgeous tattoo-style butterfly design – so you can tick off two trend boxes in one.  Seams also feature but with a sexy, modern twist; like the Mesh Frontseam Tights which are made from a fine micromesh and feature a striking front seam.  We love the Pretty Puzzling Jigsaw Backseam Tights, which feature a backseam design made from puzzle pieces!  The quirky style shows Pretty Polly have been picking up some tips from their partnership with House of Holland designer Henry Holland.

New Year’s Style: The Bolder the Better!

We are so bored of listening to people talk about chic, sophisticated, ladylike fashion.  Whatever happened to experimenting with new ideas?  These days it seems as though everyone is too scared of making a fashion faux pas to try anything a little different to their usual style, so why not try bringing back a little wardrobe revolution this new year?

Funky tights aren’t nearly as tricky as you first think to wear.  Take Celeste Stein tights, for example.  Yes, the patterns are completely out there and the colours aren’t exactly fading into the background, but if you pick out the key colours and coordinate (or even clash!) you can get a really great fashion forward look.  Or if

you are really shy, just team them with a classic black dress and knee high boots for just a little flash of fun as you walk.

Loads of people also shy away from suspender tights, thinking the design is going to be a little too racy for them, but you don’t have to wear them like Rihanna.  Make like our favourite hosiery crushes Little Mix and style yours with casual basics like denim shorts and Christmas jumpers or loose fitting t-shirts – they can even work for daytime!

Little Mix also love wearing Henry Holland tights, and they’re not the only ones.  Barely a week goes by without some celeb being spotted in his designs, and his tights range for Pretty Polly showcases his design talent to perfection.  Try his Reverse Star Tights with your favourite LBD, or else get colour pop perfect with the Houndstooth Tights which will look great with high waisted shorts and a

fitted denim shirt.

These are just a few of our ideas, but there are tons of stunning designs in our range of tightsso get creative and let us know how you style yours!

Little Mix's Perrie Rocks the Luxe-Casual Look in Jonathan Aston

We’ve always known that Little Mix were great fans of the Statement Tight (Henry Holland did create their own personalised Alphabet Tights for them, after all), plus last month the girls rocked the FAST at Jonathan Aston Scramble Bodies on Daybreak. So we weren’t surprised to spot Perrie Edwards in the extremely pretty Jonathan Aston Fantasy Tights, which she teamed with a little denim playsuit and chunky winter coat.

We’d been all geared up to save these tights for our party frocks, but we love the idea of dressing these tights down like Perrie! In fact, the entire Jonathan Aston A/W collection is full of super luxe designs that we’ll now – thanks to Perrie – be teaming with casual basics. Here’s how you can rock the Aston-ista look without dressing up to the nines…

Bye Bye, Mr. Blue Skies…

viagra online canadian pharmacy

g” alt=”" width=”400″ height=”540″ />Nothing makes me want to don colour pop brights like the cold weather, and now Mr. Blue Skies seems to have bid us farewell, I’ve been frantically digging through my wardrobe in search of something to bring a little sunshine into my wardrobe.  Thankfully, you add colourful flashes to your look and tick off your trend list as colour blocking is a key look this season.  Here are our top 5 coloured tights and how to wear them:

1)      Henry Holland Houndstooth Tights in Pink: Try pink on pink with a pink dress – we thought this would be too much but our founder Laura rocked this look the other day and looked amazing!  Henry Holland tights call for bold styling and the pattern breaks up the colour to make it pretty wearable (or as wearable as all-over pink ever gets, anyway).

2)      Yellow Tights: Neon, mustard, buttercup – whatever shade you go for, yellow tights are pure sunshine in a pack.  Ideal for grey days when your spirits need lifting, wear them with shades of purple for pallet perfection.

3)      Mary Portas & Charnos Stripe Opaque Tights in Sultry Sage: This medium to dark green with black pinstripes design is colour blocking for shrinking violets: subtle, chic and sophisticated.  These will go with pretty much anything – try teaming them with

your workwear to get heads turning at the office.

4)      Pretty Polly 60 Denier Plush Tights: These gorgeous opaques from Pretty Polly come in 7 different shades – one for each day of the week!  We especially love the Denim shade, but whatever colour you’re in the mood for, they’re all finished with cashmere protein for extra softness.

5)      Blue Tights: Another way to banish the blues, shades of aqua are super fresh and tie in with this season’s underwater trend.  The Trasparenze Valentina Hold Ups in Azzuro are bundles of fun to wear, or try the Pamela Mann Lurex Micronet Tights in Blue/Silver, which will tick off two trends in one as metallic are also key this autumn.

Katy Perry ♥ Statement Tights!

Katy Perry just can’t get enough of statement tights at the moment!  The pop princess was in London promoting her movie Part of Me and was spotted leaving exclusive London haunt Cirque Du Soir where she was partying with Florence + the Machine guitarist Rob Ackroyd in what looked like fishnet hold ups (but which were on closer inspection tights with a hold up design printed on).  As she left, she even accidentally flashed her bottom to the waiting paparazzi!  This look is the latest in a long line of funky hosiery that we’ve spotted her in – these are just three of our recent favourites…

Spotted in London

Everyone loves spotty tights – and it seems Katy is no different!  When she was interviewed on Radio 1 in March she teamed oversized polka dot tights with a really elegant combination of cream dress,

beige trench coat and Charlotte Olympia Kitty pumps.

Get the Look: Pamela Mann Oversized Spot Tights or Jonathan Aston Cherish Tights will both give that large spot look à la Katy, or for something a little subtler try the Mary Portas & Charnos Sheer Spot Tights.

Oh My Goth at Coachella

A look we were a little less sure of was what she wore to the Coachella launch party in April.  A gothic dipped hem dress and studded leather jacket (trust us, it’s worse than it sounds) were rescued only by the fabulous Henry Holland Bones Tights.  These are a real statement product that will get heads turning -  however, wearing them with something tailored will ensure you end up looking a little more Friday night frolics and less Friday the Thirteenth.

Star in Stars on Ellen

Completing the trio of tights-tastic looks was what Katy wore for her appearance on the Ellen DeGeneres Show at the end of May.  The star showed up in an unusually simple black dress which she perked up with some of her characteristic quirkiness – purple hair and the Henry Holland Superstar TightsWe love!

Katy Perry: Glam vs. Gothic

Katy Perry just can’t get enough of statement tights recently. The singer showed off two very different sides as she dressed up for a radio interview before transforming into a glam rocker to party at a festival.

She was spotted on leaving the Radio 1 studios last month sporting a rather more demure look than we’re used to. The pop princess, who showed off her post-Russell purple hair at Coachella last week, gave her old blue style one last outing in a classy ensemble of a silky cream dress with a trench style beige coat and spotty tights. She finished the look with the Charlotte Olympia Kitty flats that have been seen on everyone from Beyoncé to Alexa Chung recently.
