Oroblu SS15: The Best Of!

Oroblu Bouquet Leggings

Oroblu Bouquet Leggings

Each and every one of the brands we stock at MyTights.com are unique in their own way, so we’re always intrigued to see how our brands translate the catwalk trends into their new collections. One brand that never let us down is Oroblu, and it just so happens that we recently received a long-awaited delivery of their SS15 collection!

As we’re sure you eagle-eyed hosiery fans have noticed, the new range launched on the website across the last couple of days, and you’re in for a real treat. Oroblu are brilliant at taking a classic style and putting their own spin on it, creating fashion-forward hosiery that’s always a cut above the rest, which is instantly clear from the new range. And with leggings, socks, hold ups and tights in the mix, every single one of our lovely customers can enjoy some sophisticated Italian styling this summer. Here are our top picks:

1) Oroblu Bouquet Leggings  - as fashions come and go, some have a real knack of staying around. One such fashion is floral, and these leggings offer them in abundance. Ascending up the leg, the mix of pretty petals and leaves are great for adding some femininity and glamour into an otherwise casual look. Ideal for jazzing up your longline tees or equally forming part of your party look, we have a feeling we’ll be wearing these A LOT across the coming months.

Oroblu April Tights

2) Oroblu April Tightsfishnets are undergoing something of a style revolution of late – they just seem to be everywhere! No complaints from us, but for a particularly fashionable pair, these classic net tights are joined by a gorgeous side seam with an unusual tricot effect. MyTights founder Laura is a big fan!

3) Oroblu Luna Footprotectors these gorgeous foot liners epitomise Oroblu to a tee. Taking something as standard as a footprotector and making it into a high-end fashion accessory, the mix of net, floral lace and scallop edge make these a must-have in our eyes.

oroblu-candice-pants

Oroblu Candice Long Pants

4) Oroblu Addison Tights a trick we always stick to is layering some sheers beneath fishnet tights to stay current and on-trend without compromising on warmth. Killing two birds with one stone, these brilliant fashion tights have an interlinking diamond pattern against an elegant sheer base, creating the illusion of nets and giving us all a new essential.

5) Oroblu Candice Long Pants finishing with something a little different, these fitted pants give the look of cropped trousers, but with the stretch and comfort as leggings. Sounds like the perfect marriage in our eyes!

Laura’s Choice: Top Trends!

Now the fashion weeks have come to a close and we don’t find ourselves continually refreshing the websites of just about every fashion magazine in existence, we’ve taken some time to consider what the key trends are likely to be for the upcoming months. In typical MyTights style, we’ve gone one step further, not only highlighting the key trends but letting you know how you can recreate them at the drop of a hat. Just call us your very own personal shoppers…

Trend 1: Coloured Opaques

Pamela Mann 50D Tights

Pamela Mann 50D Tights

Coloured opaques were quite simply everywhere, from London to New York and even making a stopover in both Paris and Milan. It seems like the fashion world has gone crazy for coloured tights, and rightly so in our opinion. Capable of updating your look and reigniting your love for that dress you bought 5 years ago and have never worn, why stick to black?

Winner: Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights

There could only be one winner in this category for us. Forever finding their way on to our bestsellers list, these 50 denier tights come in no less than 20 beautiful colours, from classic shades of black and navy blue through to the delights of daffodil yellow. There really is no better way to make your outfits look good as new, and coming in at just £4.95 a pair, you’d have a hard time arguing against treating yourself to a pair of these.

Runner up: Falke Pure Matt 50D Tights

Coming in at a very close second place, German brand Falke have taken the trend for colour and added a luxury quality in a way that only Falke can. Available in seven colours and boasting a matte finish, they’ll stand the test of time and offer you a fun and colourful style day in, day out.

Trend 2: Fishnets

trasparenze rita

Trasparenze Rita Tights

Fishnets are never far from the top of my hosiery drawer, so I was thrilled to see them enjoying a ‘fashion moment’ on the catwalks. Whether worn on their own or layered over some funky coloured tights, nets are the perfect way to take your wardrobe favourites from drab to fab.

Winner: Trasparenze Rita Fishnet Tights

One of my must have hosiery styles, rarely a week goes by where I don’t pull on a pair of these fishnets. With a slightly larger net than would be considered traditional, they’re brilliant for layering over coloured tights or fashion styles and adding some sophistication to your look without giving too much away. I’m not ashamed to say I own a pair in every colour, and so should you!

Runner up: Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights

Landing in our offices just a few weeks back, the Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights are perfect for those of you who like to stay on trend but create an individual look at the same time. Nobody could argue against these tights being net, but the art deco design and quirky look makes them a fashionistas dream.

Trend 3: Spots

Wolford Poppy Tights

Wolford Poppy Tights

We weren’t surprised in the slightest to see spots making their mark on the catwalks, having been the pattern of choice of the A-list for months. Decorating the legs of every single model at Diane von Furstenberg (New York) and Giles (London), dots are the best way to stay on trend while retaining an elegant look. I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for them!

Winner: Wolford Poppy Tights

Incorporating hundreds of tiny dots but with a whimsical Wolford twist, these 20 denier tights are covered in asymmetrical spots that will send the double takes in your direction. With the spots being denser at the ankle and dispersing as they ascend up the leg, these fashion sheers succeed at being feminine yet funky.

Runner up: Oroblu Adelle Tights

More of a classic polkadot style and one I’ve worn countless times, these 10 denier tights have an all over dotty design that adds a delicate and charming touch to your wardrobe. Understated enough for work and stylish enough for a night out, take your pick between black and navy blue.

 

 

Trend 4: Wet Look

Trasparenze Callophrys Leggings

Trasparenze Callophrys Leggings

As much as we’ve admired wet look styles over the years, they’ve never really had their big fashion break, sticking firmly in the wardrobes of the likes of Kate Moss. Until now that is! Even appearing at Saint-Laurent and dressing the legs of Beyonce in recent weeks, a vampy style awaits us all.

Winner: Trasparenze Callophrys Leggings

All the merits of a traditional legging but with a high shine finish to enhance your glamour credentials, the lightweight finish and elastic waistband make them brilliantly comfortable to boot. Great with oversized tees and tunics, bringing out your inner rock chick has never been easier.

Runner up: Pamela Mann Wet Look Leggings

Made in a mock leather fabric, these ultra-shiny leggings are your go-to option for bring a grunge-glam twist to your look. Cut off at the ankle and far more comfortable than the skin-tight fit would suggest, pair them with a longline statement tee and heeled ankle boots.

Who knew being on trend could be this simple?

Until next time…

Laura’s Choice: SS15 Fashion Top Picks!

To most other people, the turn of a new season means little more than a slight change in the weather (if we’re lucky!) For the team at MyTights however, with a new season comes an abundance of fabulous new hosiery making its way into our office. Welcome to SS15! With some of our gorgeous new collections already available on the website and plenty more to come in the upcoming weeks, what better way to get you excited for the warmer weather than with my top fashion picks for spring?! Okay, so it might not be toasty enough just yet to pack away our opaques for good, but it’s certainly heading in the right direction. Expect florals, nets and geometric glory – here’s a first look at what we’re all going to be wearing across the next few months…

Jonathan Aston

Jonathan Aston Magma Tights!

Jonathan Aston Magma Tights!

Of all the brands we stock, the new collections from British label Jonathan Aston are always amongst the most anticipated. Always keeping one eye on the catwalk, Jonathan Aston have a real knack for bringing the hottest trends into your hosiery drawer, and more importantly, at an affordable price. Good news – the SS15 range has followed suit! If you’re something of an old romantic, head towards the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Tights. No need to pick away at the petals anymore, these 15 denier tights are covered in a realistic handwritten scrawl spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ game. The guaranteed way to get admirers falling at your feet! For something a little more subtle, charm the socks off anyone who crosses your path in the Jonathan Aston Sweet Memory Tights. With their symmetrical floral print, these fashion sheers take sweet style to the next level, proving the perfect addition to your summer dress with their nude base and sandal toe.

From classic florals through to fashion-forward geometrics, I’m a real fan of the Jonathan Aston Magma Tights (that’s me in them on the left!) A far cry from your average sheer, these 15 denier tights are covered in opaque blocks and rectangles, coming together to give any ensemble a striking twist and hand you the fashion limelight. I’ve worn them a handful of times in recent weeks, and each time I’ve been complimented on how great they look, so they come highly recommended. Sticking with the style statement theme, the next new addition I’d like to introduce you to is the Jonathan Aston Crystal Socks. Made in a chic silvery-grey shade, what will immediately strike you about these ribbed fashion socks is the gorgeous satin bow at ankle height. Ideal for adding the je ne sais quoi your summer basics need, they’ll look just fabulous with a skater dress and sweet ballet flats.

 

Wolford

wolford-josephina-tights

Wolford Josephina Tights

It’s always a joy to bring you the latest releases from high-end Austrian label Wolford. What I love about this brand in particular is that they’re capable of taking a classic style and revamping it in a way that only Wolford can. Almost by magic, their newest additions do just that! Focusing first on the beautiful Wolford Josephina Tights, these fashion sheers look just like an ordinary pair of sheer tights at first glance. Turn to the side however and you’ll reveal a stunning quilted seam running along the outside leg. Not content with just elongating your legs, the quirky seam adds a real decorative touch to your look… unmistakeably Wolford!

If, like us, you’ve been following the recent AW15 fashion weeks, you’ll have noticed the wealth of wet look styles treading the boards of the runway. Appearing this week at the acclaimed Saint-Laurent Paris show, you can mirror the en vogue look with the Wolford Estella Leggings. A real investment piece, these skin-tight leggings are bound to bring out your inner rock chick, not only wowing with their high shine finish, but also coming with an unusual seam at the knee for yet more appeal.

Trasparenze

SPINDASIS_babbuccia

Trasparenze Spindasis Footlet

Not familiar with Trasparenze? Famous for their stand-out pieces as well as their timeless basics, the SS15 collection from the quality Italian label certainly doesn’t disappoint. From fashion socks through to classic leggings, there really is something for each and every one of us to indulge in. One of my personal highlights of the new range is the Trasparenze Fluture Socks. Ankle high sheers scattered with a ‘butter wouldn’t melt’ rose detail, they’re the perfect way to kickstart your summer style and update your old classics. One of the best things about the warmer weather is getting to wear those cute flats you banished to the back of your wardrobe last September again. Anyone who wears ballet pumps and court shoes regularly will know that they are prone to rubbing, which is where the Trasparenze Spindasis Footlets come into their own. With all the qualities of a traditional foot liner, what’s brilliant about these is that they’re actually made from floral net, so as well as protecting your feet from sores, they’re also a fully fledged accessory in their own right!

It’s not only funky styles on offer either – the range also caters for those of you who love a quality basic. Enter the Trasparenze Honeymoon Leggings, with their matte finish, choice of three colours and timeless design. The perfect way to bolster your hosiery capsule, these are the leggings you need to get you through the chillier spring/summer days. Tunics, dresses and longline tees, they really will work with anything! If you love the look of suspender tights but can deal without the hassle, I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t point you in the direction of the Trasparenze Pafia Tights. With the leg itself combining fashionable spots and diamonds, at stay up height you’ll find a chic floral band, resembling stockings and coming with a matching panty to create the illusion of sultry suspenders. Who knew THAT much style could be packed into a single pair of tights?

Charnos

Geo-spot-tights-main

Charnos Geo Spot Tights

Last but not least, I’d like to introduce you to the two latest offerings from British brand Charnos. Similar to the Trasparenze Pafia Tights in that they incorporate both diamonds and spots, the Charnos Geo Spot Tights will send your style credentials through the roof. Suitable to be worn both at the office and at the bar, they also come with a boxer brief to protect the most vulnerable area of the tights. From one summer must-have to another, the final product in my list is the Charnos Lacey Stripe Tights. Lace will forever be on-trend, so you can rest assured these 20 denier tights will remain fixture of your look for seasons to come. With floral lace panels descending down the leg in vertical style, these are perfect for giving your party wardrobe that push it needs.

With plenty more new lines planned to be launched onto the website in weeks to come, I suggest you watch this space!

Until next time…

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.

activebottoms-closefit

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…

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.

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!

how to make money as a teenager

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!
