Laura’s Leggings: The Ultimate Guide to All Things Footless

falke-cotton-touch-footless_1Whilst leggings will never occupy the same space in my heart devoted to tights, I can’t help but notice they are selling like hot cakes of late, which is why I have thrown in my two-penneth on the subject and come up with a round-up of the best footless tights and leggings, whatever the occasion…

Classic
Classic styles will take you from day to night with ease and go with pretty much everything you own. So when the wind is howling and the rain is lashing against the windows, reach for the Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Thermal Opaque Footless Tights, which boast a sumptuously thick 200 denier design and a fleecy lining to keep you extra warm and comfortable.  However, if it’s multi-coloured legs you crave, the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights are available in over 15 shades at an exceedingly purse friendly price! They also come in a plus size version, but if you find the Pamela Mann 50D Plus Size Footless tights a little too light, you could also take a look at the Cette London Plus Size Leggings for a comfortable fit for curves in a 60 denier.

For extra comfort the Falke Cotton Touch Footless Leggings contain high levels of cotton, keeping them breathable and cosy. Super soft, these luxurious leggings will keep your legs warm on even the bitterest winter mornings and provide a great fit. But if you’re the type of girl who wants it all, you will adore the Spanx Look at Me Cotton Leggings, which contain an impressive 64% cotton that is extra thick for superior coverage – plus, with the tried and tested technology that has made Spanx a global name, these leggings will trim any tummy and shape that bum.

If after all these choices, you’re wondering what is the difference between leggings and footless tights? Well, the simple answer is thickness! Leggings tend to be thicker than footless tights and this means that you can wear them under a shorter top.

Workwear/Elegant
I adore products that prove that there is no need to sacrifice comfort for elegance. Perfect for the workplace or an elegant evening look, the Trasparenze Lituania Leggings provide both in spades thanks to their matte finish and range of classic colours. When you are dressing up for one of those extra special occasions, the Trasparenze Push Up Leggings are an excellent choice. This magical pair lifts and enhances your derrière, leaving you looking stunning in that slim fitting dress.

If you are after an all-encompassing coverage for bums, tums and thighs and want to make sure that your silhouette stays seamless, then the Spanx Ready-to-Wow Structured Leggings are divine. Providing stronger control, you can wear these deluxe leggings as trousers thanks to their super thick design – with all the in-built benefits of Spanx. The thick generous waistband and medium level of control means that they will feel comfortable to wear all day, and no centre seam ensures that no unsightly lines ruin your outfit.

Fashion
jonathanaston-polar-mainPrefer your legwear to make more of a statement? Fashion followers take heed, the Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings are ideal for providing that leather look that is tipped to be on-trend in SS14. These leggings are very Olivia Newton-John, however, we recommend matching these lovely leggings with a fluffy white jumper instead of a full leather jumpsuit à la Olivia!

If snakeskin is the one that you want, the Trasparenze Mystery Leggings feature a subtle snakeskin effect. To complete the whole animal kingdom (and if you’re feeling particularly brave) we also have Pamela Mann Leopard Footless Tights, in a bold monochrome design. After something to help you stand out from the crowd on a Friday night? Our Wet Look Leggings by Pamela Mann are for you. Sublime and shiny these leggings would match perfectly with black high patent heels for a glamorous, head turning look. A glittery alternative for disco worthy legs are the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights – perfect for fans of all things that glimmer and shine.

Sportswear
I find Spanx’s range of leggings absolutely sublime for the gym, and the Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Close Fit Pant allows me to keep fit in style. Their medium control ensures keeps us feeling comfortable and svelte during exercise, providing plenty of flexibility – after all that is pretty important on the treadmill! The moisture wicking technology makes sure that you stay comfortable and hygienic while you work out, and the icing on the cake (or granola bar) is the curved seam for a flattering shape.
sparkly-footless-tightsFor a similar look and feel but with shorter length, I would suggest the Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Knee Pant – a little more palatable for when the sun finally makes an appearance.

Kids
Last but definitely not least, the Country Kids Capri Tights are suitable for kids from 3-11. They contain high levels of exquisite Pima cotton for both comfort and quality and are available in a range of colours including pretty pastels. Or if your little princess is more of a disco diva, obsessed by all things that glimmer, the Country Kids Sparkly Footless Tights will most definitely impress even her discerning eye.

So whether you love leggings for sport or for fashion, for the office or just for the kids, there is definitely something here for everyone – even myself!

Until next week…

Hosiery Must Haves for AW13!

With cooler temperatures comes to the need to revamp your wardrobe, which can only mean one thing. New hosiery! ?Any excuse to update my collection is fine by me, but it seems that this year, AW13 trends are stronger than ever. Purse friendly and space effective (leaving more room for shoes!), on trend legwear is a must for anyone wanting to stay ahead of the fash pack.

Autumnal Hosiery at MyTights

Top of the trends this time round is colour blocking. Bright and fun, colour pop hosiery is perfect for defeating grey skies and gloomy moods in seconds. Seen at Anna Sui and Vivienne Westwood, the key is to pull the shade through the entire outfit, roping in accessories to make the look wearable. Of course, top to toe is far from subtle, so it?s important to graduate the tone, mixing textures and finishes for a grown up colour block. I personally love brown tights as a soft alternative to black, but for a look inspired by Anna Sui, treat your hosiery drawer to a red hued opaque, just like the Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights in Rubino or even the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaques in Scarlet. Rouge not your cup of tea?

Discover your favourite shade from our range coloured tights (we got more than 60 colours!) and build your outfit from there. If you?re still struggling to embrace the all in one shade, then let shoes & bags echo your choice of colour instead, leaving a black shift dress to tie in the colour.

And from rainbow tints to jungle fever, it seems that the fashion world can?t get enough of animal print this season. From zebra print at Burberry to leopard print at Jean Paul Gaultier, the safari inspired pattern is the simplest way to jazz up an understated LBD or tired pencil skirt. For those who covet the leg limelight, opt for the Animalia Tights from Wolford. A favourite of mine, the luxurious and loud semi-opaques are a combination of leopard-like squiggles and tiger inspired stripes. Complete with a super soft feel that is to be expected with Wolford tights, these are great for teaming with a black mini skirt and simple polo neck. For those seeking a subtler approach, the Legend Leggings from Trasparenze are a must. Admittedly a tad risqu? from first impressions, the fierce leggings are easily tamed with some clever styling, letting you dress them up or down depending on the occasion.

Completing the trio of trends is just about anything netted. From socks to tights to even gloves (yes, gloves!), designers and stylists alike have fallen for fishnet tights. With heavyweight names such as YSL and Jean Paul Gaultier embracing the style, I think it?s high time for a re-stock of my favourite products.? For those seeking an everyday pair, I recommend the gorgeous Levante Fishnet Tights. With a matte finish and no visible reinforcement to hinder wardrobe decisions (these are already durable enough on their own merits!), these are great. Going under every hemline without a hitch, these are perfect for dancers and performers too. For a little more flair, treat your wardrobe to the Margaret Tights from Oroblu. Packed full of charm and a quirky cut out detail, the netted tights are a flirty take on the classic design.? Simply team with a hemline that will frame the cut out and keep accessories minimal.

If you?re still craving more AW inspiration, tartan and leather are also hotly tipped for the season. For tartan tips when it comes to hosiery, read my Laura?s Choice from last week. Fans of the leather look needn?t fret either, as the Leather Look Leggings by Pamela Mann offer a high drama dose of the style. A firm favourite of the red carpet elite, leather leggings look fab when worn under an oversized jumper or, for the more adventurous, with a cropped blazer.
Until next time!So there you have it! The easiest way to update your wardrobe, without upsetting your bank balance…
