Laura’s Choice – Footless and Fancy Free!

Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights

Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights

As much as a life without our opaques doesn’t bear thinking about, we can’t help but thinking that it’s high time that we switched to a more summery alternative. Footloose and fancy free, footless tights are the perfect solution. Meaning you can seek solace from the chilly mornings and show off your summer sandals at the same time, footless tights are brilliant for pulling off a relaxed daytime vibe, or adding some effortless cool to your party looks. Finer than leggings and available in every colour of the rainbow, we’re here to let you in on all of our footless style secrets to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch…

The wallet warriors

At this time of year, most of us are busily saving for a last minute holiday in the sun, so it makes sense to save the pennies while we can. Proving that a fabulous footless style needn’t cost the earth, stocking up on the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights is a must. Leaving you with change leftover from a fiver, these 50 denier lovelies are thick enough to cover your legs, without overheating should a summer heatwave take hold (unlikely, I know!) Wondering what the reference to 3D in the title means? Thanks to innovative elastic fibres, these footless tights have a generous stretch that will move alongside your legs, as well as adding a dash of durability and leading to a beautifully even appearance. Oh, and with 16 colours in the mix, all of your outfits can join in on the fun!

Especially for fuller figured beauties, flatter your curves in the Pamela Mann 50D Plus Size Footless Tights, again just £4.99 a pair and accommodating for dress sizes up to a UK 28-32. While we live in hope that this summer will bring some longed for warmth, they also come in an 80 denier version for the extra chilly days.

The secret saviours

Any of you who regularly read our blog will know we love hosiery with hidden benefits. After all, who doesn’t want as much from their money as possible? With the mercury rising, I have to point you in the direction of the Pretty Polly Coolsense Footless Tights. While you may fool the outside world into thinking these are any old pair of footless tights, they’re actually made from Nilit Breeze yarns. None the wiser? Considerably smoother and lighter than other footless styles, the innovative yarns mean that you’ll always stay at least 1◦c cooler than usual, keeping you feeling lovely refreshed – even after a mad dash for the bus! Or if the thought of tomorrow mornings spin class fills you with dread, iron out your lumps and bumps the easy way with the Spanx In Power Line Super Footless Shaper. Strong control shaping shorts with inbuilt 15 denier footless tights, your body insecurities aren’t going to hang around for much longer!

The fashion favourites

Basic styles are a key part of every wardrobe, but for events where only glamour will suffice, take a look at the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights. As seen on Fearne Cotton, these fabulous footless tights are covered in shimmering glitter. Packed full of wow factor and destined for parties, your inner disco diva can choose between silver and gold sparkle depending on your style preference.

Paying homage to the trend for patterns and prints, another of my top picks are the Trasparenze Graphium Leggings. Coming in at a 40 denier, these decorative leggings are covered in an ornamental paisley print to rack up the style points. Or if you’re forever falling under the charms of lace, opt for the Oroblu Sherry Leggings, new for SS15 and coming with a sumptuous floral lace effect against a tulle base.

Does coloured hosiery makes you go weak at the knees? Stocking up on the Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings is a must. Whether you wow in white or thrill in fuchsia pink, these 70 denier leggings are perfect for pairing with summer tunics and brightening your look. If you don’t want your daughter to be green with envy, treat her to the Country Kids Capri Tights, with 10 summery shades and sizes ranging from 3 years all the way up to 11.

Footless styles are chic, effortless and ready to kickstart your summer wardrobe. Now, if only locating my summery sandals was this easy…

Our full range of footless styles are worth a look!

Laura’s Choice: Christmas Made Easy With Happy Socks

The one month klaxon has passed – we can officially get excited about the festive season! As exciting as it may be, the run up to Christmas can be a stressful experience, can’t it? Having to wade through masses of bargain hunters in shopping centre’s while enduring countless renditions of ‘Rocking Around The Christmas Tree’ isn’t exactly my idea of a relaxing Sunday afternoon. To make this year’s shopping a slightly more enjoyable experience, I thought it would be a fab idea to introduce you to our new Happy Socks range! For those of you who aren’t familiar, Happy Socks are a quality Swedish brand, famed for their wacky design and fashion-forward styling. In my book, that makes for a perfect Christmas gift, and good news, as this year they’ve launched a selection of fantastic new products for men, women and children – Happy Socks for all!

Ideal for treating your wives or girlfriends, another great option is the Happy Socks Women’s Brief and Socks Gift Box; especially perfect if the lucky lady has a penchant for polkadots. My fashion motto at the moment is ‘if all else fails, opt for polkadots’, so if they’re anything like me, they’ll adore this set, with both items featuring a multitude of brightly coloured spots upon a black background. Seriously on- trend, both of these sets are also presented in an attractive gift box, scoring you extra points and saving you the monotonous task of wrapping!  If you’re on the lookout for affordable stocking fillers, Happy Socks have a huge array of products that would suit, the pick of the bunch for me being the Happy Socks Women’s Paisley Socks, with their intricate paisley print and vibrant colours.

Notoriously difficult to buy for, the men in your life can also benefit from the Happy Socks treatment! Starting with the budget busting, I love the Happy Socks Men’s Stripe Socks, which have a classic stripe design and contrasting heels, toes and bands. Available in five colour combinations, my personal favourite is the red, white and blue – perfect for channeling a nautical legwear look! If these are up your street, they’re also available as part of the brilliant Happy Socks Men’s Socks Gift Box, alongside three other wacky designs, encompassing polkadots, stripes and super-bright colour blocks. If your husband’s/boyfriends underwear drawer is in need of an overhaul, look no further than the Happy Socks Watermelon Men’s Brief, with a fitted silhouette and watermelon-esque design that’s anything but dull. Or kill two birds with one stone and treat him to the Happy Socks Men’s Briefs and Socks Gift Box, featuring both a boxer brief and pair of combed cotton socks in a, you guessed it… polkadot design! Also available as a boxer short if your man is that way inclined.

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!

Top 10 Ways to Recycle Your Old Tights

Untitled-2In this era of credit crunches and frugality everyone is looking for ways to make their money go further and their things last longer.  Now we all know the golden rules of increasing your hosiery’s lifespan (washing in a hosiery bag on a cool wash or by hand, not putting in the tumble drier or on radiators and using hosiery gloves to avoid snags), but the sad fact of life is that there will be day when a snag or stain means you have to say goodbye to your favourite tights.

Our newest recruit Lottie (pictured) has been modelling our kids’ tights, but in between she’s come up with our top ten ways to recycle your hosiery – so now you can be a frugal fashionista!

Ways to use tights that are broken:

  1. If you have a bug jar instead of putting a hole in the lid get part of a pair of your broken tights and put it over the top of the jar.
  2. If you have a little bowl with food in and you want to keep flies from getting to the

    food then put part of the tights over the top with an elastic band their to hold it on.

  3. Put onions into one of the legs and hang them somewhere cool, to keep the onions nice and fresh.
  4. For some wrapping you can cut off one of the legs and wrap it around the present to keep it held together and maybe to give it a little decoration.
  5. You can use them with old paint to filter them to get all of the lumps out.
  6. If you need to tie something up then you can use a strip off the tights to tie it up.
  7. With the toe of the tights you can put crushed lavender in the end of the tights and put it in your wardrobe or your cupboard to make your clothes smell like lavender.
  8. A way to remove nail varnish is you put nail varnish into a container and put the tights into the container and then take out the tights and you can use the tights to remove the nail varnish.
  9. You can use the tights to clean surfaces or anything.
  10. If you drop something small on the floor then put the end of tights on the end of the vacuum and it will hover it up and it will stay in the tights.

Here Come The Fashion Kids…

Celebrity Children.  Cuter, better behaved and often, these days, better dressed than their famous parents, the latest generation of celebrity children are becoming fashion icons whilst still in their formative years.  And whatever you think about Suri’s high heels, there’s no denying that some of the little ones’ apparel is infinitely covetable.  Harper Beckham was spotted in public in a pair of Chloe tights that were utterly adorable – and now your kids can get lovely legs too, with the new range of childrens tights at MyTights.com.

There loads of variety for you to choose from – Pex does a great range of cotton opaque tights that are soft, comfy and come in tons of colours – so you can get navy, black and grey for their school tights and opt for the brighter colours at the weekend.  This is a really cheap way to update their outfits (we know how fast they grow, plus their favourite colour one week will almost certainly become uncool/disgusting/the worst colour in the world in a heartbeat).

Younger kids will love the patterned kids tights (soft pastel stripes and colour pop polka dots) from Country Kids, while older children will delight in their first pair of sheer tights for that first “formal” grown up dress.  And of course, the sparkly tights are perfect for pairing with party dresses for all ages!

Yummy mummies everywhere, beware – your kids are after your fashion crown, and they’re much cuter than you…
