HOSIERY BREAKING NEWS! Sophie Ellis Bextor Unveiled as New Face of Pretty Polly

Here at MyTights HQ, we love it when a hosiery brand signs up a shiny new celebrity to be the face of their label. So you can imagine our glee when MyTights favourites Pretty Polly recently announced they have signed up pop starlet Sophie Ellis-Bextor (of Murder On The Dancefloor fame) to front their new autumn/winter collection. The 35 year old singer joins an illustrious list of celebrities who have previously fronted a campaign for the brand, including none other than the Sugababes, Jade Jagger, Jemma Kidd, Jamelia and Jessie J. Not content with showcasing her never-ending pins in shop windows across the country, the glamorous mother of three is also lending her fashion expertise to the brand with the launch of a series of her own styles. Pretty Polly released a statement commenting on the new collection, which was revealed to be titled Flirty, explaining that was heavily influenced by the ‘vintage and folkloric styling’ of their newest addition. We love Sophie’s quirky style at MyTights, so if this claim has any truth behind it, then we’re seriously excited for the new range!

The star is said to be thrilled at being approached by the brand, adding that ‘Tights have always been a staple part of my wardrobe both on stage and off – I love the way they can change or update an outfit.’ You don’t need to preach to the converted, Sophie!

I’m sure you’re all holding your breath until the new collection is launched, but until then why not have a look at the fantastic range of Pretty Polly hosiery we stock here at MyTights! Whether you’re after everyday opaque tights, classic sheer tights, or on-trend  fashion tights, you’ll find it here. Shop now.

Trend Alert: Shapewear as outerwear?

Yes, you read that right ladies! It seems that our favourite celebs have taken a rather…different approach to their shapewear and have done away with all the speculation of who’s wearing what. Rather than leaving us guessing as to who is secretly relying on their Spanx to keep them slim & trim, two pop starlets have decided to display their affection for the shapewear in public, showing us that they’re loud and proud of their shaping saviours.

Jessie J

Proving that you don’t need trousers to look fabulous, Jessie J took to the Isle of MTV stage in nothing more than her Spanx and a scarf print blouse. Waist cinching and curve creating, her high waisted black underwear quickly became the talk of the town (sort of), as it seemed the Price Tag singer had transformed Spanx into the perfect on stage accessory. Given Jessie’s hosiery history and daring fashion sense, the voluntarily reveal of Spanx seems relatively predictable, but when it comes down to working the trend ourselves, we can’t help thinking that we might just leave the trend to Jessie and her endlessly long limbs!

For a figure like Jessie’s (that will look just as great underneath a little more clothing), we’ve searched high and low to bring you the best shaping solutions. Craving a waspish 50’s waist? Then let us point you in the direction of the Undie-Tectable High Waisted Panty from Spanx. With a medium strength control, these stretch to just below the bust line, flattening everything along the way. Eliminating those dreaded muffin tops and revealing an enviable hourglass shape, these will slip secretly underneath any and everything that your wardrobe has to offer. For a chic looking brief that has a touch of vintage glamour, treat your underwear drawer to the Amazing Light Adjustable Brief from Naomi & Nicole. A doppelganger for Jessie’s stage shapers, the flattering high waist comes courtesy of an adjustable waistband. Allowing you to position it wherever works best for your figure, these go best underneath foxy pencil skirts or elegant high waisted trousers.

And from one shapewear flasher to another, it appears that Jessie J isn’t the only singer celebrating her love for Spanx. Former Disney star Selena Gomez has recently turned her attention to music, putting on a show for fans in Boston. Along with showing off some impressive dance moves, it seems the Springbreakers actress had no qualms in revealing her nude shaping briefs too. Admittedly her high-slit dress didn’t help in conserving her modesty, but we’re still pleased to learn that even young Hollywood starlets need a little helping hand when it comes to looking that glamorous! If like Selena, you’re after underwear that can go incognito underneath all outfits, we recommend the Slim Cognito Seamless Control Panty from Spanx. Ideal for everyday wear, the briefs give all others in your drawer a run for their money, as they offer a super strong control and seamless shaping magic.

Won over by the trend? No, we didn’t think so! Whilst we won’t rush to expose our underwear drawer anytime soon, we can’t help but adore those who prove that shapewear has the potential to become the ultimate stage accessory…

Jessie J Works the Bondage Look at Wireless

Jessie J appeared to be taking a leaf out of fellow global superstar Rihanna’s book last night when she upped the raunch factor for her set at Wireless festival.  In fact, the singer was the warm up for Rihanna and despite the rain belted out a standout set in her usual fearless style, covering all her hits including Domino and Price Tag.

We’ve long been fans of Jessie’s outrageous style and, having been the face of tights brand Pretty Polly, it should come as no surprise that she came out wearing the briefest of denim shorts and a white crop top (erm, has she seen the weather?!) over the bondage-style Pamela Mann straparound tights.

Bondage tights first exploded onto the scene after a version by Wolford was spotted on Cheryl Cole and became an instant sellout.  Not for the fainthearted, they can add a touch of sexiness or punky cool to your look, but treat them with caution – teaming them with leather, too much black or too much flesh on show can be a recipe for disaster.

We like that Jessie’s kept it clean with crisp white and pale denim, and we LOVE her longer line hair which completely transforms her face.  However, for everyday life we would maybe los the scarf she’s draped around her waist and opt for a longer

t-shirt or even a smarter collared shirt.

However you wear them, you’ll be surprised with how easy it is to get the celeb look – at under £15, these Pamela Mann straparound tights are worth every penny and will attract compliments everywhere you go.  Not quite your thing?  Try checking out the rest of the collection of Jessie J tights for some other quirky styles of fashion tights that might be just what you’re looking for.

WIN Wolford Tights Worth £120…

I Wanna Get Back With My Ex 0″ height=”540″ />Long known to be a super-luxe brand worn by the likes of Rihanna, Cheryl Cole and Jessie J (and rumoured to be the brand of choice for the Duchess of Cambridge), the Wolford name is a hallmark of quality in the world of hosiery and Wolford tights are some of the best you can get.

At the moment MyTights.com is giving you the chance to WIN a pair of the super sexy Wolford Brilliant Tights!  With a sultry lace up design that gives an over the knee boot effect, they have real ribbon criss-crossing at the back that you can tie in a bow at the ankle or thigh.  These striking tights are worth a huge £120, and they could be yours in just a few clicks – head to our competition page to enter now.

If those aren’t quite your style, take a look at the entire Wolford collection, or check out our top three below…

Summery Sheers

Sheer tights are a summer staple and with Wolford, the saying “you get what you pay for” couldn’t be truer.  Luxury sheers may seem like a lot of money but Wolford’s range, in particular the CBs #1 Source For Government Seized & Surplus Property

Velvet de Luxe 66 tights are without a doubt one of the most popular Wolford products.  A wear-with-anything matte finish, super smooth, strong and long lasting, it’s easy to see why these are so popular with our customers.  They are available in chic shades like dark grey and navy blue, as well as classic black.

Fabulous Fashion

High quality fashion is just another strong on Wolford’s bow, and we love this season’s Ribbon Tights, which are cute and subtle enough that they won’t be a one-season wonder.  Girly style at its best, they are made from sheer 20 denier hosiery and feature an opaque bow print that will perfectly set off your Peter Pan collars, playsuits and cropped cardies.

Tights have never been so luxurious to wear…

Jessie J on the Jonathan Ross Show

Our favourite hosiery queen was on the Jonathan Ross show this week, flaunting those pins in another Henry Holland creation.  So which pair of legendary Jessie J Tights were on display this time?  The I’m Laddered, of course – which seem to be rapidly becoming her favourites.  She’s been spotted wearing them so many times we’ve lost count – with everything from sailor caps to sequin basques and even in the video for her latest single, Domino.

For the Jonathan Ross show she teamed them with black boots, denim cut offs, a midriff-baring black t-shirt and heavy duty golf chain.  Happily chatting to Jonathan about her success, she expressed her sympathy for fellow songstress Adele, who has been off the radar since undergoing vocal chord surgery last year.

We just about managed to drag our eyes away from David Beckham, who was also a guest on the show, to watch Jessie in an awesome performance of Domino at the end of the show, where she showed off her tights to their maximum advantage.

Get the look and snap up a pair of the Henry Holland I’m Laddered Tights for just £12 while stocks last, or browse the rest of our range of fashion tights for statement legs just like Jessie!

New Jessie J Video!!!

The new Jessie J single, Domino, has already reached number 7 in the midweek iTunes charts and is AMAZING!  The video is equally brilliant, with tons of Jessie’s trademark cool and an eye catching array of outfits.  From Goth style studded lips to acid bright colours, there’s no trend too out there for Jessie.  She also wears her favourite I’m Laddered Tights, with mock hold up top, backseam and witty “I’m Laddered” motif which she’s been spotted in all over the place recently, plus we catch a glimpse of her in the super cool Mock Fishnet Suspender Tights, which feature the uber-trendy mock suspender top and mesh panelling at the top of the thigh which looks like sheer hosiery from a distance. Both of these styles are from the hugely talented Brit designer Henry Holland in collaboration with hosiery legends Pretty Polly, and are available at MyTights.com for less than the price of a pub lunch.

Watch the video and let us know what you think – is Jessie the Queen of Cool?

Hosiery of the Year Awards: Part 3

So far this week, we’ve brought you the MyTights Hosiery Awards, with our nominees winning… well, nothing actually.  Never mind.  We’ve already seen Mary Portas pip shapewear giant Spanx to the post for best brand, and all other trends bow down to the mighty suspender tights as the winner of Trend of the Year.

We also saw Kate Middleton unexpectedly take the crown for Trendsetter of the Year, thanks to her love of sheer tights, and teen-brat Taylor Momsen take the trophy for Mess of the Year.  So it’s finally time for the big one: who will be our hosiery icon of the year?

HOSIERY ICON OF THE YEAR

Winner: Jessie J

Honourable Mention: Fearne Cotton

Maybe it was obvious, but we don’t care.  Named as the new face of Pretty Polly, exploding onto the music scene and making everyone fall in love with her were just three of a hundred achievements.  And she did it all wearing some ama

zing hosiery – to get her look, all you need to do is check out the Henry Holland collection…  We can’t wait to see what the next year will bring for the Essex girl.

A worthy runner up, Fearne Cotton turned up at the last moment last week after taking a hiatus from her amazing tights collection.  The DJ and presenter’s love for quirky fashion extends to her weird and wonderful choice of tights, from lace to prints and everything in between with nothing off limits – our kind of girl!

So that’s it for another year!  Here’s to the next twelve months of hosiery, and may we wish all of our customers a very happy new year.

Jessie J ♥ Henry Holland

We seem to see new pictures of Jessie J in a different standout style of hosiery every day, so image our surprise when she was spotted wearing the same pair of tights with a selection of eye catching outfits!  The superstar must have taken a real shine to her Henry Holland I’m Laddered Tights – and as the face of Pretty Polly we’re sure she’s got a huge selection to choose from!

So what makes these so special?  Well, as well as  a gorgeous slight sheen that will give your pins a healthy glow AND an on trend mock hold up top, they also feature a sexy back seam with a quirky twist- it spells out the words “I’m Laddered” at the ankle and up the back of the calf!

And no wonder Jessie’s been wearing them over and over again – as proved by the pictures of her style choices, they really can be worn with anything.  They look super cool with Jessie’s casual “rave sailor” look – although the hat might not be ideal attire for the real world, most of us will be able to dig out our army boots from last season and give them another whirl.

Perhaps more surprisingly, her glam disco look also sets them off to perfection!  To get a similar look whilst remaining real-world appropriate, team with black cocktail shorts, heels and a gold sequinned top or blazer.

We’ve also spotted Jessie wearing the edgy Stop Cat Peeing ** Desperate Crowd

Jessie J in Cosmopolitan Magazine

Here at MyTights, we’ve made no secret of the fact that we LOVE  girl-of-the-moment Jessie J.  But when we saw this picture, our jaw almost hit the floor.  Teaming suspender tights with a leather look body and a glittering bejewelled jacket, she shows off EXACTLY why she was chosen as the new face and legs of Pretty Polly.

Suspender Tights have been around for a while now, but rather than skulking away quietly at the end of the season like most trends, they have stuck around and are still a really fun way to update an outfit.  And the rest of the world is beginning to follow our lead, too, as suspender tights are just beginning to take hold in America.

With all of the renewed attention, dig yours out and you’ll look rights at the cutting edge of fashion again!  Or, or course, you could take advantage of all the GORGEOUS new styles that are around!  Which, on reflection, is what we think we’ll do…

Classic: Henry Holland Super Suspender

No fuss.  Just a funky, classic mock suspender in black. If you’re worried about laddering the sheer top then try the Henry Holland micromesh top suspender tights.

Super-luxe: Aristoc Mock Suspender Fishnet Tights

These fishnet tights have intricate lace detailing around the mock hold up top, making them ideal for teaming with sexy playsuits for a hot date.

Girly: The Henry Holland Pearl Suspender Tights

These suspender tights are the cutest we’ve seen in a long time!  Covered with little pearls in a spot pattern, they’re perfect for shopping or lunch with the girls.

Funky: Trasparenze Aukland Tights

A twist on the classic fishnet, these are mock hold ups with a daring leopard print design that will look great with hotpants – the stuff of dreams for fashionistas everywhere!

Wearing the new Henry Holland for Pretty Polly Mock Fishnet Super Suspender Tights, Jessie displays her trademark wit and confesses to her love of tights (and Whitney Houston!), and tells us that she even wants to see her nan in the Henry Holland designs!

Jessie has said: “Ever since I started out as a singer, tights have been my statement. When you put on a pair of tights, you feel sexy and powerful. I have been wearing House of Holland for Pretty Polly tights for ages”. She has made a name for herself with her hit songs, individual style and feisty attitude, and now she’s set to stun us with her amazing legs too!

David Hinchcliffe, Brand Director for Pretty Polly, agrees:

“Jessie J was the only choice for this campaign – there is no one else who can capture the essence of the House of Holland for Pretty Polly tights quite like she can. She is amazing – her style, talent, unmistakable attitude make her the perfect choice for the collection.”

In the video you also get to see her wearing the quirky Henry Holland I’m Laddered Tights – but the entire Henry Holland for Pretty Polly collection is set to be HUGE, so quick – get the look now!
