Snug As A Bug: How To Wear Wool Tights

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights

Like her or loathe her, there’s no denying that supermodel Cara Delevingne has a huge influence on the fashion world. Rarely a day goes by when the supermodel isn’t making the headlines, and with media interest like that, it’s no surprise that brands and publications alike are fighting over the current fashion darling. Last month saw Cara gracing the cover page of W Magazine looking typically stunning, wearing a black velvet dress and chic white wool tights. We love wool hosiery here at MyTights, and it may only be October, but her legwear made us feel (and we say this begrudgingly) kind of Christmassy.

No longer considered outdated or frumpy, wool tights are a fashion forward and practical option, and if Cara’s wearing them, you don’t need us to tell you that they’re everywhere this autumn/winter! With colder temperatures set to hit in the coming weeks, wool tights will keep your pins fashionably snug, and often blended with cashmere, merino wool and angora, luxuriously soft to boot. Here are some top tips to get it right:

  • Wool tights come in a plain knit or with a ribbed texture – opt for a plain knit if the rest of your outfit is quite busy, but if your outfit is fairly plain, a ribbed finish is great for adding texture and interest to your look!
  • For an effortless daytime look that will work time and time again, team with a pair of simple denim shorts and a knitted jumper.
  • Or if you love the warmth of wool but need inspiration on how to dress them up, team with a loose fitting tunic, thin waist belt, heeled ankle boots and lashings of jewellery!

If you’re after a pair of practical wool tights to wear to the office, we recommend the Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights, which are available in a variety of autumnal colours. Perfect for keeping your legs cosy on the early morning commute, they’re also made from 55% wool, so comfort is top of the bill here. For something textured to add some interest to a plain outfit, the Levante Wool Rib Tights are just the ticket, and they come with the added benefit of being incredibly affordable. Luxury seekers will also love the Wolford Merino Tights, typically Wolford with their generous waistband for maximum comfort.

If nothing here is taking your fancy, why not have a look at our entire range of wool tights, instead?

Whatever you choose, you’ll be fit for a winter wonderland!

INTERVIEW WEAR- WHY TIGHTS ARE A MUST!

There’s nothing worse than turning up for an interview and you’ve missed the attire ‘memo’. You may as well have turned up naked, and that reoccurring dream that haunted you since you were a child has just materialized. But of course, help is at hand here at MyTights.com! Here’s some guidance on how to ace that interview, and as we are judged within the first 7 seconds of meeting someone, the appearance is a pretty good place to start…

 

94% of interviewers have a negative impression on a candidate if they show up bare-legged*

Unfortunately we aren’t all blessed with naturally slender or blemish free legs, (or hot weather all year round!), and so this may not apply to many-  if Miranda Kerr and Beyoncé still invest in sheers then there’s no reason why we shouldn’t!

 

The ‘debate’…

Years ago the debate on whether women should or shouldn’t wear tights to the workplace was unheard of, and pantyhose were a woman’s best friend. Many women still live by this, and this is something candidates need to consider! Your potential employers are probably not your age so wearing tights is a must for them, and as a potential newbie you don’t want to give any of the senior team a reason to dislike you! After you’ve been hired, you can then get a feel for the company to then decided whether going bare-legged can be accepted.

 

Company culture

You may be asked to dress in business casual and if so then fretting whether you should or shouldn’t wear tights won’t be an issue. BUT don’t assume that all businesses dress this way; make sure to ask and get a full brief policy description.

 

“For women, the more skin you show, the less influence you have.”

 

 

 

So, now we’ve discovered that tights are a BIG deal in an interview (who knew?!) now all you have to do is CHOOSE a pair…

Colours are limited, as although coloured and patterned tights are ‘in’, wearing the newest AW14 trend to an interview for a financial position in a bank may not be appreciated; so for ultimate safety stick to Nude or Black tights.

 

 

 

Opaques

These 50 denier suede matt opaque tights are an essential to the winter wardrobe this season, super soft and smooth against your legs they can be worn with any fabric skirt and perfect for an interview!

Nude sheers-

These sheers have been around since 1937 (with a few tweaks to keep them up to date with hosiery innovation, of course), so we are pretty certain that they are a good catch. These 10 denier tights are cherished for their ultra-glossy finish, and with high durability and wear you can’t go wrong!

 

Black

With a broad selection of dark colours to choose from, these glossy Wolfords will have any interviewer wishing they’ve got a pair!

LAURA’S CHOICE – WOOL TIGHTS

Falke Soft Merino Wool 2

download software cheap

Storms are afoot and I am very tempted to hibernate under the duvet and read one of the many books that I received for Christmas. Thankfully, these woolen tights make this time of year much more manageable. We have such a wide range of delectable and cosy hosiery that it can be difficult to know where to begin, but thankfully you have narrowed it down with your reviews left on Feefo, our independent review service. Here are my recommendations, and what you had to say about them.

These classic wool tights will go with everything you own ? so no more waking up to find there?s a blizzard outside and you have nothing to wear.

Levante Plain Wool Tights“Warm and cozy in sub zero Celsius weather.”

If you reckon that the weather is just too frightful to face while wearing your favourite skirt, then think again.?Levante Plain Wool Tights?not only look divine in their subtle shades but they also keep your legs wonderfully warm. These sumptuous tights?also boast a reinforced toe making them winter walk proof.

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights“These tights were exactly what I wanted and I am delighted. They are well constructed which means that they are comfortable to wear. They are also durable and following the washing instructions means that in terms of depreciation, they will eventually pay for themselves!”?

Trasparenze Wool Gennifer

These woolen wonders feel luxuriously soft thanks to a special finishing treatment. Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights are pitch-perfect any time of day, with wool on the outside to protect you from the elements and cotton weaved inside to keep you comfortable. Equally, thanks to the hand-fit toe technique, there is no visible seam at the toe for increased comfort. These elegant opaques are available in six different chic shades. Reassuringly thick and soft, these wool tights are designed to last.

However, coloured tights provide a superb solution for adding a bit of welcome colour to those wardrobe staples.

Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights“I get these tights all the time. The quality is excellent, they are warm (I live in Alaska and wear dresses to work) and the price is affordable.”?

For impeccable style in a myriad of colours, I would suggest?Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights. From the violet version in Prugna, to the pine green shade Bosco, there is an ideal option for everyone. I personally adore the rich raspberry tones of Rubino – perfect for warming up a winter outfit, such as a grey chevron knitted shift dress.

The fashion tights below prove that it is very possible to keep warm and look fabulous.

Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights? – “These are superb. Warm, yet flattering.?

Jonathan Aston Alaska

I love tights that work and play hard, like the?Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights?which ensure that you look stylish and feel snug. Team these showstoppers with an aubergine skirt and cream turtleneck for a subtle yet on-trend look. This fashion hosiery is available in black and navy ? perfect for a multitude of ensembles.

Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Tights“Very warm and snug! Excellent quality!”

When I fancy a slightly different look that is still warm enough to keep my toes toasty then I tend to plump for?Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Tights. The fine rib design is exceedingly flattering and adds an unexpected touch to my outfits. Whether you are 4?9? or 6?1?, slim or curvaceous, with 4 different sizes there is a perfect fit for everyone.

Levante Wool Rib Tights“These tights are soft, warm, and incredibly comfortable. The waistband stays up but doesn’t bind, and the toes are reinforced but don’t irritate.”

The?Levante Wool Rib Tights?are available in elegant coffee shades. Armed with a generous 100 denier, these opaques give my legs an even coverage. The flat lying waistband and barely there seams make these tights a joy to wear. Personally, I find that the Mocca shade goes perfectly with little tan leather boots, an aubergine pleated skirt and a chocolate cashmere jumper.

Aristoc 100 denier cashmere

For another subtle twist on a classic staple, I also adore?Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights. The design elongates your legs, giving self-assurance even in the coldest of weathers. Durability is always a key factor when selecting tights and these toasty soft tights boast a superior thickness. ??Again, these tights benefit from the hand-fit toe technique providing a superior fit. The wide range of different shades available means that you do not have to sacrifice warmth in order to achieve your required look.?Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights – “Wonderful quality as always. Warm, cosy and great colours.”?

Now for even more luxurious tights, these pairs will keep you feeling sumptuously snug no matter the weather.

Aristoc Cashmere Blend 100 Denier Tights“I have MS so getting tights on can be a huge struggle. These are soft, stretchy and comfortable and slide on easily.”

The addition of a touch of cashmere gives these opulent opaques a luxurious soft feel and their 3D construction gives 100% even coverage as well as warmth.?Aristoc Cashmere Blend 100 Denier Tights?also have a soft 4cm waistband, so these tights provide pure comfort from toe to tip. Match these tights with a long light pink coat for a delightfully fashionable but equally functional look.

Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights“Lovely quality, soft with a hint of shine. Quite generous sizing and extremely comfortable to wear.”

Woolly tights do not come more deluxe than this! Woven from a generous high-quality mixture of cotton, cashmere and silk,?Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights?is haute hosiery that again provides you with comfort and style. The three materials work perfectly together, the silk makes these tights beautifully smooth, the cashmere keeps you sumptuously warm, while the cotton content also provides an additional comfort factor. Falke weaves their tights in such a way that they always provide a snug and flattering fit. My favourite shade is navy, however there are 3 others from which you can choose.

We hope that these splendid woolen tights will turn your winter from freezing to wonderful.

Until next time…

Fuller Figure Fabulous: Make Like Adele and Dress Your Curves to Perfection

I think the recent news about the singer Adele having a baby has only served to bring her even closer to being our ideal woman. For the longest time she has been a style ambassador for the larger lady and I’m sure has been instrumental in getting High Street shops to finally embrace the use of real sized women in their ad campaigns. Long may it continue!

The curvy shape of larger ladies lends itself so well to great undergarments, including fuller figure hosiery. Gone are the days when one size fits all and now you select the sizing of your tights and hold ups in the same way that you choose the size of your underwear – or outerwear. Take care with your choices and and it can serve you well.

Plus Size Opaque Tights

Let’s start with opaque tights, the greatest of all basics. Pretty Polly fly the flag for British design. Pretty Polly Curves 60 Denier Opaque Tights are a solid black all rounder with built in shaping. The kind of tights that wear once and you’ll wear forever. Cette Dublin Plus Size Tights are another great mid price 60 denier staple which are available up to a size 32. These tights come in three different shades of black so you can choose the tone that suits. Transparenze Denmark Plus Size Tights are another hero basic. A matte 60 denier finish and a range of lovely autumnal colours will keep these firmly at the top of your drawer. Now, you’ll have heard me go on and on about Falke and my trusty German favourites are also big advocates of size. Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights have an incredible nine colours in a 70D silky shiny finish. Perfect for the party season.
