Harpers Bazaar LOVE MyTights!

 harper-bazaar-jon-aston-coverSomehow, we’re nearing the end of July already. How did that happen?! Sadness erupts when we think how fast summer is flying by, however Harper’s Bazaar reminded us that autumn is full of fabulous fashion, not least with all the hosiery we can wear to protect our legs from the plummeting weather. The UK version of the famous fashion magazine’s August 2015 issue is ahead of the curve with cool blues and the Jonathon Aston 40D Opaque Tights provided to them by none other than MyTights.com

Available in an array of shades, these 40 denier tights are the perfect way to add some colour to an otherwise simple outfit. Minimalist fashion is trending, which could explain all the monochromatic ensembles that we’re seeing of late. Great with plain black, white or grey dresses, coloured tights are so chic because they embody simplicity and clean lines to create a look that wouldn’t look out of place in the glamorous 60’s era.

Pamela Mann hosiery is featured in the editorial as well. The model sports deep teal opaque tights, with bright purple pumps. If you love this style as much as we do, we suggest Pamela Mann 80 Denier Tights in Dark Teal to replicate it!

Shiny Opaques: If they’re good enough for Balmain…

If we were pushed to name a list of the most high fashion brands on the market, Balmain find themselves towards the top of our list every time. Famed for extravagance and always knowing how to make a style statement, their latest shoot for Vogue caught our eye for all the right reasons. Not only is their new collection gorgeously intricate and colourful, it also features an abundance of tights!

Gigi and Bella Hadid

Gigi and Bella Hadid

 

With the editorial celebrating the unconditional love of siblings, we also haven’t mentioned that the models were none other than sister acts of the moment Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Joan and Erika Smalls. Now that’s what we call a fashion-forward family affair! Our favourite look was that of Gigi and Bella, who teamed embellished pieces in shades of red, deep purple and golds with sky high heels and shiny black opaque tights. Now, we can’t promise that you’ll find dresses as luxurious as this on the high street, but there’s no reason why you can’t mirror their legwear at MyTights. Cue our top five shiny opaques…

Wolford Satin de Luxe Tights

Wolford Satin de Luxe Tights

1) For the closest look to the sisters themselves, opt for the Wolford Satin de Luxe Tights, which combine a very shiny finish with sheer to waist briefs and the kind of luxury features that make Wolford, well… Wolford!

2) Not to be outdone, another great pick are the Falke Seidenglatt Tights, slightly less shiny than the Satin de Luxe but perfect for adding some glamour to evening looks but still remaining understated.

3) If you’re after something in a lower denier for warmer days, head to Falke again and their Pure Shine 40 Tights, which come in five shades and are ideal for glossy evening events.

4) On a budget? Don’t fret, as the Jonathan Aston Gloss Opaque Tights allow you to look glam without breaking the bank, thanks to a high shine finish, 60 denier weight and contoured effect.

5) Want to hide blemishes and skin imperfections? The Wolford Neon 40 Tights are for you, offering a shiny finish and 40 denier durability, but appearing like a 20 denier.

Laura’s Choice: MyTights Socks Style File

MT Socks Style File!

MT Socks Style File!

 

Here at MyTights HQ, we’re lucky enough to get the first glimpse of all the latest hosiery styles, fresh from the production line of the leading brands in the legwear market. But with this week seeing the arrival of June, our attention has turned away from thicker opaques and onto hosiery that’s more appropriate for the warmer temperatures, namely socks!  A far cry from being an unwanted gift from a great great aunt twice removed (or something like that), socks are emerging as a real fashion staple. Affordable, great for every season and capable of updating your whole look in a matter of seconds, the MyTights.com team thought we’d let you in on our style secrets, and show you how we’ve been decorating our feet in recent weeks!

Trasparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks

Trasparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks

Beginning with Customer Service & Operations Manager Nikki, who teamed a pair of grey knee high socks with black leather boots, and a dark grey dress. This is a fabulous example of how to wear knee high socks in a professional setting. Allowing you to reveal some skin while keeping the lower half of your legs happy, take a look at the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto, rolled down for a similar look. Made with an impressive 65% cotton for a soft feel without overheating, these deliver everything you could possibly want in a knee high. Or if you’re feeling brave enough to branch out from the safety of black, white and grey, make a beeline for the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks, available in not one, not two, but 19 shades, from the basics all the way through to eye-catching hues of yellow and orange.

Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks

Next up we have Marketing Assistant Chantel who, armed with the knowledge that ankle socks are as popular as ever this season, opted for a fun summery ensemble. Pairing a floral pencil skirt with red Converses, for us the pièce de résistance are her frilly ankle socks, which are perfect for adding a girly touch to any look! For a similar style, opt for the Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Sock, with an embossed floral design, attractive lilac hue and most importantly, scallop effect tops for a sweet style fix. Prefer something with a little more pattern? Be sure to check out the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks, which are covered in a handwritten scroll, spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ dilemma!

Now, something for the men! You might not know that MyTights.com stock a fantastic selection of men’s socks as well as women, as demonstrated by both Warehouse Assistant Jack (left) and Content Assistant Jack (right). Opting for the quirky collection from popular Swedish brand Happy Socks, Jack mark one chose to wear Happy Socks Men’s Dot Socks with casual trainers, skinny jeans and a sweater, while Jack mark two shows that patterned socks can add a splash of fun to office wear, wearing his Happy Socks Men’s Big Dot Socks with smart trousers and a pair of black brogues. If you’re keen to snap up the entire Happy Socks collection, what better way to save some cash than treating yourself to the Happy Socks Men’s Sock Gift Box, containing four pairs of combed cotton patterned socks for just £25?!

Charnos 2PP Flower and Diamond Sock

Charnos 2PP Flower and Diamond Sock

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

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!)

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!

Ankle Highs Trend: FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs

  

She might be dating one of the worlds most lusted after film stars in Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, but that hasn’t stopped FKA Twigs expressing how difficult it can be facing the wrath of his ‘Twi-hard’ legion of fans. Relationship woes aside, we’re really here to talk about her style! Stepping out this week with Rob on her arm, the Grammy nominated singer chose a typically quirky patterned number, chunky boots and black ankle socks peeking out of the top. While our attempts at the pattern trend may be a little more dressed down that the singer herself, we’re big fans of her ankle socks, which are perfect for this time of year. Fashion-forward, easy to wear and affordable, check out our cream of the crop below.

Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks

Laura’s Choice: Wedding Season!

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

The wedding season is upon us! You’ve found THE dress, the best man has coiffed his speech to perfection, and your table decorations are everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Now all you need is some beautiful hosiery to match! Whether you’re the blushing bride, the hungover groom or the reluctant bridesmaid, MyTights.com have a fantastic selection of wedding hosiery to hand. From silk socks for guys through to the obligatory wedding day garter, we have just the thing to leave your legs looking their best on the special day. Now just to make sure you get to the church on time!

 

 

 

The Bride

Let’s face it, the bride is the centre of attention on every wedding day. With all eyes on your walk down the aisle, it’s vital that every inch of your look is perfect, including your hosiery! Looking for a classic bare leg look? The Wolford Transparency 10 Tights could be just the ticket. Appearing like you’ve braved bare legs, these 10 denier tights boast a beautifully natural finish and all the luxury features that Wolford are renowned for. And what’s more, with their lightweight finish, you won’t overheat no matter how long the train on your dress!

Or if you want something a little more romantic as you say your vows, check out the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Hold Ups, with a sumptuous lace effect and vintage backseam. For those of you who embrace all of the age-old traditions with gusto, the Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter is a must. Staying in place no matter how many pictures you pose for, the lace and ribbon effect makes for a fabulous finishing touch to your gown.

The Bridal Party

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Upstaging the bride may be the ultimate wedding day sin, but that doesn’t mean the bridal party can’t look their best. For a rear that even bridesmaid extraordinaire Pippa Middleton would be proud of, how about trying out the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘butt-lets’ that slot into pockets and give your derriere a lift! For mothers of the bride, it has to be the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights. Offering a ‘no hosiery’ look but with failsafe LYCRA® Fusion technology, your legs will not only look flawless, but remain free from ladders from the ceremony to the after-party. If your dress is on the plain side, what better way to take your style up a notch than with the elegant Oroblu Adelle Tights? Covered in an array of dainty dots, these patterned gems are not only on trend but have a sheer to waist brief, meaning any length of hemline can work.

For the guests 

Whether it’s a distant cousin or a work colleague, looking fabulous for a wedding is a must! The great thing about being a guest rather than playing a part in a wedding is that you can really experiment with different kind of hosiery to accessorize your dress. One such way to do that is with seams, and, getting into the wedding spirit, we love the Pamela Mann Love Seam Tights. These 15 denier sheers have a slender backseam culminating in the word ‘LOVE’ etched on each ankle – how romantic! Or how about opting for a pair of fishnet tights? For something a little different to the norm, make a beeline for the Charnos Honeycomb Net Tights with a fine mesh fabric resembling honeycomb itself. Another perk of being a guest is that you needn’t worry about showing yourself up on the dance floor. Heels aren’t always forgiving, so make sure your feet stay refreshed with a pair of the Levante Shoe Monkeys Foot Cushions, taking the pressure away from your feet.

The Groom

 

Falke Tiago Men's Short Socks

Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks

Because it’s not all about the bride! Believe it or not, the groom plays a fairly big part in the day too, so it’s important they look suitably dapper. For a classic wedding day look, grab a pair of the Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks, made with 98% cotton for a beautifully soft finish and keeping your feet cool all day long. Or if you’re the kind of guy who likes to experiment with fashion, the Happy Socks Men’s Socks Gift Box should be your port of call. With four funky socks (spots, stripes and everything in between), the hardest part will be choosing which pair to sport on the big day.

With wedding pictures set to take pride of place on your mantelpiece, you’ll want to look as trim as possible. With that in mind, invest in the Spanx For Men range. Flattening your stomach, firming the chest and even improving your posture, simply layer beneath your suit and you’re good to go.

 

Have a fantastic day!

That’s what we call a shimmering success, Miley!

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus

Leaving her wrecking ball at home for the day, Miley Cyrus this week stepped out in a pair of tights that more than appealed to our inner magpie. While the 22 year old star usually finds herself at the top of the ‘worst dressed list’, she’s clearly been taking style advice from somewhere, mastering the trend for metallic with her gold sparkly tights. Okay, so we’re not so keen on the rest of her outfit. In fact we’d go as far as saying we hate it, but with legwear like that, who cares?! Perfect for parties and as seen on the likes of Alexa Chung, sparkly tights are enjoying a fashion moment of late, and in typical MyTights fashion, there’s no reason why anyone need miss out.

Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights

Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights

For a copycat look (minus that garish jacket, we hope), opt for the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights. Available in silver as well as gorgeous gold, these footless fancies were once spotted on the legs of Fearne Cotton herself, which comes as no surprise to us. Catching the light and a must have for the party season, you can also wear peep toe heels should you wish!

Iff something a little less dramatic is your preference, take a look at the Trasparenze Deejay Tights, covered in subtle metallic flecks. Admittedly not as eye catching as Miley’s, these semi opaque tights are understated enough to be worn in the day as well as the night. Or if you want to combine your adoration for all things polkadot with sparkle, the Pamela Mann Sparkly Gold Spot Tights are a must, covered in embellished spots that cover the entire leg. Who knew a glamorous look could cost under a tenner?

It’s not only tights that have been given the embellished treatment either. For a pair of razzle dazzle socks, we love the Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks, which have a lurex thread running throughout to gently catch the light as you strut your stuff.

Miley, you’re learning! Check out our entire range of sparkle and high shine hosiery before you leave.
