Kate loves opaques too!

Entrepreneur, yummy mummy and self confessed Queen of Cool, there are endless reasons why Kate Moss will forever remain our favourite model. Ever since the 5’7 beauty emerged on the scene in the late 90s, the British public (well, a large amount of them anyway), have flocked to replicate her chic & cutting edge ensembles.

Moss and her Opaques!

Just shy of 40, the mum of one showed us that she’s still got it during fashion week, debuting an impressive array of outfits. But when it came to after hour events, Moss flaunted a rather classic style of hosiery – her trusty black opaques.

No doubt her endless legs helped contribute to the show stopping looks but thanks to a little help from her choice of leg wear, Kate Moss grabbed headlines on more than one occasion. From her fancy dress appearance at the anOther magazine party (and no, there wasn’t an ill flattering costume in sight) to a Longchamps launch party, the supermodel relied on her black opaques to deliver a bold leg silhouette and elegant coverage. And here at MyTights HQ, we want to join in.

Luxurious and lovely, the Wolford Neon 40 Tights are fast becoming an office favourite, delivering a super soft feel and glossy finish. Leaving legs feeling pampered and looking polished, these are ideal for both work & play, including any fancy dress parties…

For a purse friendly alternative that still feels just as gorgeous, treat legs to the 80D Silk Finish Tights from Pretty Polly. Having recently revamped their opaques range, the British superbrand have made sure that regardless of budget or occasion, you’ll still be able to discover your perfect pair. Just the pair for those wanting a great quality pair of tights that they can wear every day, the 80 denier opaques have a gorgeously smooth finish, along with a silky sheen that Moss herself appears to prefer.

And for those always on the go, take solace in the fact that some rather clever designers have managed to work ladder resistant technology into a pair of fabulous 80 denier opaques. From Andrea Bucci, the Lycra Fusion fibre Opaque tights come prepared to deal with hectic schedules and clumsiness. By using bi-component technology, ?the outer layers of the fibre are allowed to fuse together, leaving the fabric super strong. In turn, you can be sure that a snag will never transform into anything more. Phew!!

So now we have our perfect pair of black opaques, we?re just waiting on those party invites to come through. Kate, we hope you?re reading!

Lily Allen: Trend Setter and All-round Sensible Girl

We saw the weather forecast this morning and we were officially sulking.  For the next few weeks, the general consensus is that we shouldn’t expect summery weather unless we’re planning on going far, far way: over the next few days, at least, we can look forward to clouds, rain and temperatures plunging to lows of 12 or 13°C.  Not only have we wasted time and money on a leg wax no one is ever going to see, we’ve got a wardrobe full of summer clothes we can’t even wear. 

Thank goodness, then, for Lily Allen, who yesterday did the unthinkable for a celeb and dressed weather appropriately!  Her unseasonal get-up at the Veuve Clicquot Gold Cup Polo Final made sure she had the last laugh whilst, we imagine, the majority of bare-legged celebs shivered under an overcast sky.  Elsewhere, Kate Moss cemented the trend when she was spotted in her opaques at the White Cube gallery in London.

And so our love affair with opaques (which was unexpectedly halted when we had Riviera weather in April) is rekindled.  The addition of opaques and a cardi means that we can still wear our pretty summer dresses and holiday skirts and we don’t have to worry about fake tan for another couple of weeks.  Plus, if the weather veers between oh-no-I’ve-forgotten-my-umbrella torrential rain and oh-no-I’ve-forgotten-my-sunglasses blazing sunshine as it’s prone to do, we can just whip off our tights.

So we’ve decided to celebrate the weather (yes, really!) by buying some new opaquesWe know it’s July, but if it’s good enough for Kate Moss, it’s good enough for us.

Here are three of our favourites…

Failsafe Style: Falke Seidenglatt 70 Denier tights in classic black

Bring back the summer with bright coloured tights: Pamela Mann 80D tights in Flo Pink or Turquoise

Sun-Shiny: Wolford Satin de Luxe tights

Glastonbury’s Best Dressed

katemoss_glasto_fishnetsOnce described by the Guardian’s Hadley Freeman as ‘the world’s muddiest catwalk’, this year’s Glastonbury Festival was held on the hottest weekend of the year so far with not a raincloud to be seen. But that didn’t stop all our favourite celebs from showing off their fashion savvy in an array of different hosiery looks.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson made the headlines for pairing a Louis Vuitton corset top with her denim cut-off shorts, but it was her stylish yet sensible welly boots and over-the-knee socks combo that caught our eye. Prepared for the possibility of rain, but not risking ‘welly rash’ with bare legs in her rain boots, over-the-knee socks like Emma’s are a festival essential. We love Pamela Mann’s Over Knee Socks and Striped Over Knee Socks, in a range of colours to tone with any outfit – even a Louis Vuitton corset!

Festival lover Pixie Geldof also wore knee high socks throughout the weekend at Glastonbury, but as one of Henry Holland’s closest friends, Pixie has already got her hands on next season’s Henry Holland for Pretty Polly knee highs and paired two different styles with thigh-skimming shorts and skirts and flat ankle boots. While we sadly can’t get next season’s HH for PP early for you (but keep your eyes peeled later this year!), we have still got this season’s styles in stock, so bag yourself a pair of super-stylish tights now and wear them to the festivals that might not be so lucky with the weather.

Fishnets were the surprise hit of the weekend, though, with Kates Moss and Nash both hanging out backstage in shorts and fishnet tights. Ms Moss chose a holey black pair under her denim shorts while Kate Nash wore subtle flesh-coloured fishnets with her ultra-colourful shirt and shorts outfit. Fishnets are a great idea for summer festivals as they’ll add an element of rock’n’roll edge to any outfit without making you hot. Get the look with Levante’s Fishnet Tights in black or natural beige, or take a look at Pamela Mann’s Fishnet Tights in a whole rainbow of colours.

We also spotted hot model and music fan Daisy Lowe in this season’s hot hosiery trend, mock stockings. Daisy paired her cropped vest top and teeny-weeny denim shorts with a gorgeous black patterned pair, and you can get her look with the beautiful Trasparenze Ciprea tights, which feature a pretty lace mock stocking top and white polka dots on the leg. Or try Trasparenze’s Renella tights, which also have a beautiful stocking top pattern, plus mock suspender straps for seriously sexy festival style.

With plenty more festivals throughout the summer, take your inspiration from this year’s Glastonbury style stars and make super-cool tights and socks a part of your festival look.
