Love rock chick style? Check out Kristen in her wet look leggings!

Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart


Queen of rock chick style? Twilight star Kristen Stewart wins every time. Known for her edgy fashion streak, the 25 year old actress this week graced the pages of Nylon Magazine, posing in a series of quirky outfits that she pulled off to a T. With one style featuring a pair of black ankle socks, our favourite was the outfit below, wearing a striking zebra print jacket with pleather skater skirt and gorgeous wet look leggings! Similar in thickness to trousers but capable of updating your look in an instant, wet look leggings bring instant attitude, and can be worn both in the day (think statement tees and ankle boots) or in the evening with heels and a dressy top. Envious of her legwear? Don’t fret, as it just so happens we’ve rounded up our top 5 wet look styles – just in time for the autumn…

Lovely in Lace!

Beautiful and flirty, lace tights exude femininity like no other and, best of all, the pattern has a timeless class attached to it that will never go out of fashion (or our wardrobe for that matter). As far as versatility goes, lace tights are everything you could wish for on that Monday morning, as with a little styling, you?ll find they go with any and everything that your wardrobe has to offer. Have no time to change for that dinner date after work? Craving look at me legs without the designer price tag? If you haven?t guessed it by now, lace hosiery is the fabulous solution to both of those problems!

For the sole purpose of taking the hassle out of decision making (cue sighs of relief), I have compiled the best of the bunch when it comes to all things lacy. From luxurious & decadent to the subtle but sweet, there?s bound to be a pair to suit the occasion and with the party season fast approaching, now is the time to jump on the bandwagon. It appears that it?s not just me that sings lacy praises either, with the likes of Kristen Stewart and Emily Blunt both embracing lovely lace for their editorial debuts. So with the red carpet elite on board, there?s no better excuse to invest in a pair for your own collection…Lovely in Lace!

A personal favourite of mine and a failsafe option if you?re seeking instant glamour, the Wolford Victorienne Tights are just the ticket. By combining floral charm with a seductive net, the luxury brand has created the ultimate pair of lacy tights that will take you from the office to the bar without the need to change. ?With a nod towards the decorative Orient, these are ideal for reviving tired LBDS and understated shift dresses, whilst the fabulous quality ensures that you?ll be able to wear these for many seasons to come. A tad above average when it comes to the price tag, these are the investment buy that will see you through the next few seasons with ease. Style with plenty of chiffon for a dreamy ensemble, adding a vintage necklace or belt for a sartorial touch.

For a truly classic touch to that outfit, look no further than the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Tights. As feminine as they are floral, the dainty design has been inspired by the flirty 40?s, created using a traditional cut & sew method for even more authenticity.? As part of the Vintage Collection from the British brand, these are available in both a chic black and creamy ivory, with no visible reinforcement to make choosing what to wear an absolute doddle. Purse friendly and pretty, these can be vamped up with killer heels for a femme fatale look or softened with a silk wrap dress and brogues. Just as gorgeous but perhaps a little more subtle are the Scroll Net Tights from Charnos. A true lust have if you?re enamoured with the idea of lace but remain cautious of look-at-me patterns, the soft & stretchy tights feature an elegant scroll design throughout ? perfect for pairing with flirty hemlines and this season?s spiky court.

Enthusiasts of hold ups needn?t feel left out either, as I?ve made sure to include the gorgeous Wolford Valencienne Stay Ups, packed full of a flattering floral design and a lace top with scalloped edges. Created from an open net fabric, these offer a glimpse of skin for a party ready touch whilst the discreet sandal toe means those new peep toes are an option. For a fashion forward look that oozes class, keep the rest of your outfit minimal, allowing statement jewellery to balance out the pattern. With the higher price point comes a better, more luxurious quality, meaning that you?re able to wear these every day if you so wish to!

For a short & sweet helping of lace, the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Anklets are perfect (a favourite of Kristen Stewart too!), whilst the Ivy Footlets from Trasparenze demonstrate that pretty can mean practical too, working to protect both your feet & footwear from the daily wear and tear of that hectic schedule.

So whatever your lace preference, whether it be subtle or seductive, be sure to optimise with clever styling and nifty accessories, and voila! Instant glamour minus the leg work!

Until next time ladies…

Adele’s Spanx Secrets Revealed!

'The Late Show with David Letterman', New York, America - 30 Mar 2009Pop superstar Adele has confessed before to wearing not one, but two pairs of Spanx on the red carpet, and now her stylist has gone on record as saying that the star “always” wears the slimming shapewear to red carpet events.

We’re with you all the way, Adele – not that we don’t think women should be proud of their bodies, curvy or otherwise. But shapewear’s smoothing and sculpting powers mean that any lumps and bumps are disguised, giving you body confidence – plus they make you more aware of how you’re holding your body, so your posture improves and as a result you appear taller and slimmer.

It’s pretty well known that any celeb worth their salt layers Spanx under their outfit at events – we’re even seeing the rise of Spanx for Men as stars like Brian Dowling don the shapewear for guys that’s becoming increasingly popular (it’s even rumoured that even Brad Pitt wears it!). And more and more stars are coming out of the shapewear closet, admitting to fans, press and anyone who’ll listen that Spanx is their shapewear secret.

Spanx: Shapewear of the Gods, Whatever Your Shape

Tulisa might have been flashing her Spanx at the National Television Awards this week, but there’s no shame in showing off your control shapewear any more – she’s in good company, as shapewear’s legions of fans will demonstrate.  Spanx shapewear has no end of celebrity devotees, testament to its wide range of styles and control levels and shaping features for any problem area.  So find out which Spanx is for you based on your celebrity body…


Celebrity Body Double: Kristen Stewart

Kristen has a boyish shape, so if you’re like her you probably want to go for something that adds curves.  Open bust bodysuits will give you control but allow you to wear your own bra – or else try the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which have removable bum pads to give you a booty like Beyoncé’s.


Celebrity Body Double: Kim Kardashian

Kim has previously declared than

“Spanx are my best friend”, so it’s fair to assume that she’s a fan.  If you’ve got an hourglass figure like Kim, chances are you won’t need a bum booster product like Kristen.  Go for something that slims the hips like a strong control short – we love the Spanx In Power Line Super Higher Power, which is a bestseller with our customers, too.   And we’re sure the devotion won’t stop now she’s pregnant – she can just switch to Mama Spanx!


Celebrity Body Double: Adele

Apple shapes like Adele will want something that gives them that sought after hourglass figure.  Get something that adds shape by cinching in the waist, but make sure you use the Spanx size chart to avoid unsightly bulges in all the wrong places.  Adele has admitted to sometimes wearing two pairs of Spanx under red carpet looks – but there’s no need to go quite that far as you can get great extra strong support from Spanx ranges like the

Slim Cognito.


Celebrity Body Double: Brian Dowling

Spanx for women has been around for ever, and in the name of equality it’s only fair that we share the sculpting power of shapewear with the opposite sex.  Celebrity Big Brother host Brian Dowling has confessed to a love of the range, saying: “My stylist gets me the male Spanx,  It makes me lose a good inch and a half and puts my nipples up around my chin.  It’s amazing.”  Straight from the horse’s mouth – Spanx for men is the way forward, guys.


So whatever your shape, there’s a shapewear to fit, smooth and shape your body… just follow your celeb body double for the figure of your dreams!

Our Favourite Hosiery Moments of 2012

As the year end approaches, everyone is winding down and reflecting on the year just past – not least us.  We’ve spent the week pondering our favourite (tights-related, naturally) moments of 2012…

1)      Kristen Stewart Shows off her Spanx Shapewear

Accidentally flashed her control underwear while on the Jay Leno show giving an

interview, making mere mortals everywhere breathe a sigh of relief.  Celebs are as self conscious as we are, it seems, as lots of other stars came out of the shapewear underwear closet in the year, including X Factor judge Tulisa and Katy Perry, who are both said to favour the shaping underwear over hard exercise and diet.  Ladies after our own hearts – and you can get the look with our range of Spanx UK products!

2)      Little Mix – Just Generally!

The winners of last year’s X Factor have taken over from Jessie J as the unofficial face of funky tights this year.  We’ve lost count of how many times we’ve squealed in delight over some of the hot legwear styles they’ve rocked over the past 12 months.  It all started with those personalised

Henry Holland tights (we are still green with envy) and now the girls are our favourite legwear advocates.  Keep up the good work, girls!

3)      Mary Portas launches her range of Control Tights

Retail guru Mary Portas had a hugely successful launch last year of her range of hosiery and armery in 2011, and in 2012 she followed it up with a collection of shaping control tights.  Including 2 fashion designs, not only did she put an end to the choice between fashion and comfort – she loved them so much she wore them every night on Channel 4’s Hotel GB.

Hollywood Takes On Hosiery

Hollywood seems to be having a moment with hosiery it appears, as we’ve spotted two (not one but two!!) stunning starlets from the Hills parading their oh-so-beautiful tights.

First off was Emma Watson, featured in the October edition of Glamour magazine. We’re a big fan of the 22 year old in the office, from staple trenches to covetable bag arm candy, she clearly understands what works and what doesn’t work.

Judging by this shoot, the Harry Potter actress quite clearly does have style by the bucket load. Grown up glamour with a British edge is the theme as Emma teams a quirky tartan skirt and an Orient inspired patterned top with our Falke Fine Net Dots tights.

Available in black and in nude, the dainty tights prove that the spotty tights trend is here to stay. With Falke notorious for their high quality products, the silky tights made from fine micromesh certainly do not disappoint. What you can’t see though, and what is sadly hidden away under that pleated skirt is the lacy mock hold up design. Mid thigh, this fabulous design means that you have two trends in one pair of tights.

Make your outfit all about the spots like Emma, or team these beauties with a short hemline to get involved in the popular mock hold ups trend.

Next to inject more glamour into our day was Kristen Stewart. Hot property at the moment (perhaps for reasons other than

acting and fashion) the Twilight actress is in this month’s edition of Vogue. Proving to the world that she’s not fussed by the media scrum she’s been propelled

into, Stewart shows us how to work possibly the cutest trend ever with a gothic twist –

Positively vamping up our Jonathon Aston Sweet Rose Anklets, the 22 year old teams them with a pair of daring black hotpants, paying homage to the grunge trend that’s gracing magazine columns at the moment. With fierce red kitten heels, a graphic sweatshirt and dripping in vintage jewellery she gives the flirty ankle socks some serious attitude.

Make like Kristen and wear them with a bare leg to make them stand out or if you’re in the market for more leg coverage, team with skin coloured or black sheer tights? If they’re good enough for someone who went out with Robert Pattinson, then they’re good enough for us! Available in both black and white.

Robert Pattinson: A Spanx Fan?

With Robert Pattinson’s first foray into the outside world since the break up, we bet tensions were running high.  What would he say?  Well, he didn’t say anything about his romantic status, but he did seem to allude to a love of shapewear, saying to host Jon Stewart (about his ice cream): “I’m trying to avoid eating this because I’m gonna split my Spanx”.

Now, we’re pretty sure Rob was joking – but if he wasn’t, he definitely wouldn’t be alone.  Not only did we see Kristen Stewart in shapewear on a show not too long back, Spanx now do all kinds of shapewear for everyone and every occasion.   Here are three situations we bet you didn’t know there was a Spanx solution for…

1)      Men

Well, with Robert Pattinson as a role model, why wouldn’t you?  All jokes aside, Spanx do a great Spanx for Men range that every guy should

try out.  And the best bit is, there really isn’t any stigma attached to wearing shapewear these days – everyone’s at it.  But the designs are also really discreet, so noone will know – unless you choose to tell them.

2)      Baby Bumps

Yummy mummies everywhere, don’t despair – there’s a Spanx for you too!  Maternity Spanx is the ideal way to get a trim figure whilst looking after your bump.  The Spanx Power Mama has an extra stretchy material that goes over your bump but provides shaping control around your bottom and thighs, as well as giving support for your lower back.

3)      Hot Weather

The mere thought of hot temperatures and crowded tubes is enough to put us off shapewear, but once again Super Spanx have come to the rescue with the Spanx Slimplicityrange, made with ultra lightweight fabric meaning not only will they keep you cool and comfortable, but also won’t show up under your slinky summer dresses!  We especially love the Lingerie Strap Slip, which is so elegant we wish we could wear it as outerwear!

Kristen Stewart: A mere mortal, after all?

If you’re anything like us, you’ll be feeling the shame of your Christmas eating binge whilst simultaneously turning green eyed over pictured of celebs who should KNOW BETTER than to flaunt their perfect bodies in front of us at such a vulnerable time. So hurrah for Kristen Stewart, who let us catch a glimpse of her figure fixing Spanx not once, but TWICE in one day back in November.

It just goes to show that no matter how slim, beautiful and successful you are, body insecurities just don’t go away (not even if you have a boyfriend as hot as Robert Pattinson). And although we’re betting that Kristen was red-faced about flashing her slimming secret (first at the Grauman’s Theatre where she was taking part in the hand and foot prints ceremony with Robert and Taylor Lautner, then later on the Jay Leno Show), the fact is that almost all of the celebs wear them for extra slimming and an elegant streamlined figure.

Kristen looks like she’s wearing a shorts shapewear product such as the viagra online

=kristen-stewart-spanx&utm_medium=blog” target=”_blank”>Spanx Undie-tectable High-Waisted Mid Thigh Shaper. By getting something that extends right the way up to your bra line, you can pretty much eliminate the possibility of telltale lines under your clothing – or alternatively choose a seamless product for a similar effect.

If you’re struggling with the extra pounds that Christmas can bring, why not try a shapewear product from the new ShaToBu Get Fit Range, which is shapewear featuring inbuilt resistance band technology that means you actually burn more calories when going about your everyday life with no extra effort!

Oh, and FYI, Kristen… most shapewear products come in nude shades which are perfect for blending in a bit better if you’re wearing a shorter dress, or else try a briefs product rather than shorts, which will be no more visible than normal underwear, no matter how short your hemline is!
