What MyTights Wore – 11.04.14

Spring has finally sprung and the only thing prettier than the blossoming trees outside is the sheer range of fabulous hosiery inside the MyTights office.

 

Nix-Dorella-Leggings02

Nix looks fabulous wearing the gorgeous Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings with a short chevron patterned dress and large gold hoop earrings. Follow Nix’s example and wear your mini dresses with style by matching them with leggings.

 

Laura-Floral-Tights-Mar-03

Floral tights are an elegant way to embrace fashion tights. Laura wears her floral patterned tights with a pleated long-sleeved dress, slim black belt, patent black heels and statement silver necklace.

Emma-PamelaMannFashion-03

Embracing the horizontal stripe trend, Emma teams her stripy fashion tights with black ankle boots, skater skirt and horizontal striped jumper. Mock over the knee tights that combine opaque and sheer deniers are perfect for when the weather is not quite warm enough for low denier sheer tights.

Hopefully we will have even more gorgeous weather next week, whatever happens we’ll be wearing some fabulous tights!

Fashion Trend: Meggings (Men in Leggings)

Men in…leggings? Although it sounds bizarre at first, it is true that this is expected to become a major trend in men’s fashion. But, can men look masculine in an article of clothing that was created to show off the female figure? MyTights think they can!

In fact, meggings have been spotted on the runway and even celebrities have been seen supporting this new look.

So its official, the trend has started. Now is the time to jump on the bandwagon guys and order your meggings for the upcoming spring and summer today!High-fashion runway shows including John Galliano and Givenchy had their models strutting in meggings, predicting the upcoming trend. Celebrities Russell Brand and Lenny Kravitz were caught casually wearing meggings on the streets and one could also argue that Kayne West’s skin-tight leather pants mimicked this new megging look.

MyTights offers plenty of gender neutral leggings to help you get started. The Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Close Fit Pant and Spanx Ready-to-Wow Structured Leggings have a full range of sizes from small all the way up to XL. We would recommend men use large to XL depending on your physique . For bulkier men, MyTights also offers Cette  London Plus Size Leggings which includes bigger sizes ranging from XL to 3XL!

Ladies, we need to encourage all of the important men in our lives to look great  and feel comfortable. So inform everyone from your significant other to your brother to about the trend because let’s face it… real men wear meggings.

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.

spanx-read-to-wow-structured-leggings

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…

Taylor Momsen And The Wet Look

article-2442648-187F30B800000578-101_634x930You might remember Taylor Momsen on the American teen drama Gossip Girl, where she played a darling young school girl – an image she has very successfully shed. The actress-turned-rockstar was in Houston recently, rocking on stage as lead vocals of her band The Pretty Reckless. Rising quickly to stardom, this is the band’s third headlining tour and have already supported many popular figures in the goth-rock world like Marilyn Manson.

Known for her strong vocals, the songstress put on quite a show in Houston – and made quite a bold fashion choice as well! Momsen’s edgy fashion sense helped her pull off her wet look footless tights effortlessly, pairing it with a black tank top and black knee-high boots. I just love the trendy touch that the leggings added to her dark outfit. She’s not the first to be caught in these statement-making tights, however. All the top celebrities have worn the wet look, from the red-carpet to the after parties to the supermarket! Whether you’re eclectic like Lady Gaga or classy like Victoria Beckham, these leggings are versatile enough to work with almost anything.

If you’re looking to get Taylor Momsen’s look, the Pamela Mann Wet Look Leggings on MyTights are a great choice. You could even try to create your own look! They’ll be sure to make a statement no matter what event you wear them to!

Style File: Jameela Jamil and her festival tights!

So the festival season is coming to an end and DJ-come-style-icon Jameela Jamil has made sure that thanks to her choice of hosiery, it finishes with a flourish. Making an appearance at the glamorous V Festival (with Beyonce headlining, it was going to be nothing short of fabulous), the gorgeous 27 year old has clearly perfected her festival style, achieving a balance between all things pretty and practical. Oversized parka in case of torrential downpour? Tick. Sassy sunglasses for when the weather cheers up? Tick. Animal print tights for fashion kudos? Double tick.Animal Print!

Proving that festivals don’t always mean muddy wellies and socks, the quirky Radio One DJ teamed her ruffled mini dress with a pair of fetching printed tights. A tribute to the trend that’s set to invade our wardrobes this season, animal print hosiery is the easiest and most commitment free way to get involved. Whether you’re a lover of leopard or crave subtle snake print to finish off that outfit, we’ve got the ultimate selection to choose from.

For a look just like Miss Jamil’s, treat your hosiery collection to the Wild Tights by Jonathan Aston. Available in two different colour combinations (nude with a black print and black with a black print), the exotic animal print is perfect for adding a little interest to understated dresses and skirts. Using both sheer and opaque fabric, an eye catching leopard print runs from the toes to the waist, making for a cheeky alternative to those everyday sheer tights. With a loyal celebrity fan base too (including the likes of Pixie Lott and the Kardashians), these have just moved to the top of our lust have list this season!

If you’re still coveting animal print but can’t bear to part with your cosy leggings, we’ve got some good news. Knowing all too well that when the temperatures plummets we turn to anything that can conserve heat, Italian brand Trasparenze have created the luxurious & lovely Mystery Leggings. As soft as they are smooth, these combine that snug feeling that leggings do so well with a slinky snakeskin effect. Demure enough for you to wear to work but with a sartorial edge that makes them party appropriate, it’s safe to say we’re big fans. Likewise, the Legend Leggings from the brand pay homage to the big cats of the animal kingdom, with a faux denim print and leopard print fade.  Team with a cropped leather jacket and Chelsea boots for complete festival chic.

Jameela Jamil, we want your wardrobe!
