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

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

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.

Coachella Looks: Sheer + Geometrics a la Kylie Jenner!

Fashionista, socialite, and famous for her perfect pouty lips, Kylie Jenner has done it again with her recent Coachella outfit. In case you’re not familiar, Coachella is the go-to festival for the style and music elite, full of eye-catching outfits and the obligatory flower crowns.  Still just a mere 17-years old, Kylie Jenner showed up to the festival with her sister Khloe and rumoured boyfriend Tyga in an outfit that was far from understated. Grabbing all of the media attention, here sheer and figure-hugging leotard was layered over a black bra and high-waisted knickers. Paired with stylish black lace-up gladiator heels to complete the look, the leotard boasted a gorgeous geometric pattern, as well as seams which emphasized her curvy figure to a tee.

While wearing a full sheer body suit might be out of the question for an everyday trip to the shops, nailing the trend for geometrics and seams couldn’t be easier. Here’s how to pull off a bold style statement a la Kylie!

Sensational seams

Jonathan Aston Woollies Leggings

In the 1960s, nylons worn by women were knitted flat then sewn together to create a long seam running up the back of the leg. Now, these tights are knitted in a circle, thus eliminating the need of a long seam. But fret not if you’re a fan, this classic vintage look is enjoying a fashion resurgence of late, so you can all try out the trend for yourself. Try the Wolford Flavia Tights that feature a sheer 15 denier look with a slender zig-zag backseam. These tights will create a subtle sexy finish to your outfit whether you’re wearing a LBD or a trendy dress. For a more classic backseam, try the Moulin Rouge High Heels Tights for with their elegant slender seam and tapered Cuban heel.

Trend-alert: Geometry isn’t for class anymore

Geometric lines and patterns are a huge trend right now for spring and summer. Fishnets, stripes, and bold prints are all the rage for fashion tights to construct a confident and sexy OOTD. If you want to emulate Kylie’s fashionable Coachella look, take a look at the Wolford Stella Tights and Jonathan Aston Woollies Leggings, or how about the Wolford Juliette Tights? With a geometric design alternating from sheer to opaque, these styles are guaranteed to turn heads.

For the love of sheer

Levante Seamless Sheer Hold Up

Sheer black tights are a staple in creating a subtle sexy and smoothing look. A black 15-denier nylon look adds allure and sophistication to your legs while leaving the perfect amount of skin to show off. If you’re looking to match Kylie’s sexy sheer look, go for the Wolford Individual 10 Tights with their exquisitely soft finish and host of luxury features. Or why not check out our sheer hold ups while you’re at it? The Levante Seamless Sheer Stay Up are the perfect choice.

Spotted: Celebs in Tights


Everywhere we look there are celebrities flaunting legs clad in the latest fashions.  But there’s no need to be green with envy – it’s never been so easy to get the look.  You

don’t need a personal stylist, insider know-how or even loads of money, as this bunch prove…

Fashion opaques are the way forward this season and winter florals were huge on the catwalks at all of the A/W designer shows.  So make like Katie Holmes, who stepped out wearing the lovely Aristoc All Over Floral Tights recently.  The actress’s fashion sense has been given a whole new lease of life since her break up from Tom Cruise in 2011, and she looked chic and sophisticated in these, teaming them with a blue coat, red handbag and grey heeled ankle boots.

Kylie Jenner (of Kardashians fame) was also snapped latching onto the opaque fashion tights trend in the super funky Henry Holland Reverse Star Tights.  She styled them with a grungy black hoodie, but you can also try dressing yours up in your favourite LBD or even take them to the office!

Meanwhile Vanessa Hudgens (pictured)opted last week for suspender tights with an all black ensemble finished with an oversized mustard scarf and studded boots.  Not only are dressed down suspender tights the perfect way to get a look that screams rock chick, they are great for keeping your pins warm while flashing a little flesh.

So apparently covering up is

the way to style your pins this season – but not with your boring plain opaques you wear winter after winter.  Choose something new and fresh with the range of fashion opaque tights at MyTights.com for instant cosiness, without compromising on style.
