Celebrity Style: Over the Knee Socks!

Celebrity Looks

Celebrity Looks

Although this week may suggest otherwise, the month of May means that summer is well and truly on its way. At last, we hear you say. But before you shed off the winter layers in a frenzy, it’s not quite warm enough to opt for bare legs. This would lead most people to opt for sheers or semi-opaques, but the MyTights team have noticed another trend sweeping the nation of late – over the knee socks! Giving the perfect compromise between keeping you snug and a fashion-forward look, it’s not just us ordinary folk who have been swept up in the trend, with a host of celebrities also jumping aboard. Spotted on the streets, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall was last week papped in a flirty yellow plaid skirt and black over-the-knee socks for a  casual ensemble that we adored. Meanwhile across the pond, Megan Fox was spotted during filming for her new film donning a sexy blue plaid skirt and completing her look with yep, you guessed it; over the knee socks. Want your own piece of the action? Here’s how…

Celebrity Favourites: Get the Look!

Hankering after a little star style this season?  Get the look, with our pick of celebrity favourites…

K-Middy’s Bare Leg Look Tights: Kate Middleton and the Great Sheer Tights Debate has become one of the most iconic hosiery looks of the last few years – ironic, since as the name suggests, you can’t even see them.  There are loads of bare leg look styles on the market that offer wonderful coverage and a flawless skin tone – it’s rumored Kate wears Wolford sheers, but we love the Falke Shelina Tights, which offer the perfect shade for every skintone.

Zooey Deschanel’s Opaque Tights: There’s no denying that Zooey is the official face of opaque tights – from New Girl set to red carpet event, she never seems to take hers off!  For those of you without the A List budget, there are the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Opaque 

Tights – just the right thickness to keep out the chill without being too thick for elegant eveningwear, they come in a range of shades so you can match them to your accessories.

Gwyneth’s Wool Tights:  On her much-discussed lifestyle website Goop, the Hollywood actress includes the wonderfully warm Wolford Merino Tights in her top picks for avoid the icy polar vortex weather in the US.  We’re not surprised – they’re wonderfully warm and super luxe to boot!

Little Mix’s Suspender Tights: The Little Mix lovelies are hard at work making a name for themselves across the pond, and are (in our opinion) at least partially responsible for the resurgence of suspender tights in the last few months.  Get the look by donning a pair with a twist, like the super cute Pamela Mann Bunny Ear Overknee Tights or the popular Pamela Mann Paris Skyline Suspender Tights.

Rochelle’s Shapewear: The Saturdays lovely has made no secret of her love of shapewear, and Spanx in particular.  And with a figure like hers, why wouldn’t you want to get the look?!  If you’re expecting, opt for the Spanx Power Mama Shaper, just like Rochelle – or if you just want a little helping hand to get Rochelle’s amazing hourglass figure, the Spanx Higher Power Brief is just the ticket.

Miranda Kerr’s Sheer Tights: Sales of sheer tights have soared in recent months, with classic black sheers making a name for themselves for the first time since the 90s.  Model Miranda has been spotted out and about in hers on several occasions – get the look with a 20 denier sheer like the Falke Pure Matt 20 Tights, which have a classic matte finish and luxurious feel for a look just like Miranda’s.

Put a Spring in Your Step With Pretty Polly & Henry Holland SS13 Collections

There’s no denying that Pretty Polly is one of the most well-known names in the world of hosiery for a reason.  Keeping our pins perfected and protected since 1919, they have successfully navigated the fine line between keeping their older customers happy with a constant catalogue of amazing basics, while bringing their fashion tights collections to a new hosiery audience.  The proof is in the pudding, and with Beyoncé’s Superbowl backing dancers

clad in Pretty Polly’s secret socks collection, no one could question that Pretty Polly have still got their finger firmly on the fashion pulse.

We shouldn’t be surprised, then, that their spring/summer range is nothing less than all out fabulous.  Butterfly prints are set to be HUGE in the coming months, and the Fly Flutterby Tattoo Tights feature a gorgeous tattoo-style butterfly design – so you can tick off two trend boxes in one.  Seams also feature but with a sexy, modern twist; like the Mesh Frontseam Tights which are made from a fine micromesh and feature a striking front seam.  We love the Pretty Puzzling Jigsaw Backseam Tights, which feature a backseam design made from puzzle pieces!  The quirky style shows Pretty Polly have been picking up some tips from their partnership with House of Holland designer Henry Holland.

Keeping it Simple: Monochrome is back

Fashion is hardly ever easy – from agonising over whether this colour goes with that shade to the mournful morning you realise you just got too old for colour clashing, just working out a suitable palette to play with is difficult enough without then having to trawl through a style, length or

cut to flatter your figure.  Thankfully, monochrome is back with a bang, as demonstrated by Little Mix in the latest edition of Notion Magazine – making colour choices easy again.

The four girls were shot in their trademark edgy style, with three of them in stark monochrome looks with Leigh-Anne providing a pop of colour in bold orange.  Stripes seemed to be the order of the day – possibly inspired by Henry Holland’s pre-season SS13 collection – as was tartan, spikes and leather.  Even better, the girls finished some of their stunning looks with tights from MyTights.com!  The Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights were a popular choice – it must be a celebrity thing, as the Saturdays also wore them on their tour earlier this year.

The easiest and chicest way to work the monochrome look is with a classic white shirt and black skirt – from peplum to peter pan collars, there are endless possibilities so you can make the trend work without compromising your own personal style.  Add

a flash of colour (anything bright works but keep it to one accessory).

Or why not try one of the other looks on show in the girls’ shoot?  Get too cool for school in a tartan mini and skirt or go all vampish vixen in leather and spikes.  Of course, there’s only one way to finish off your look, whatever you go for – the Little Mix Way, with fashion tights from MyTights.com!

Little Mix's Reverse Style

By now, it’s clear how much Little Mix loves their statement tights, especially those from Henry Holland. We love their chic and urban style and how they’re not afraid to take some fashion risks. Both Jesy and Jade have recently been seen wearing one of our favourite looks by Henry Holland: reverse spots. Holland has some great reverse tights this season that put a funky twist on some of your favourite classic designs!

This past week, at a store opening in London, Jesy impressed as always by sporting the Henry Holland Reverse Polka Dot Mock Hold Up Tights. Henry Holland has done it again, combining two of our favourite trends: suspender tights and spots! But these aren’t ordinary spots. These tights feature an array of bold sheer spots on an opaque base to give you just glimpses of the leg. Pair with a cute pair of shorts like Jesy or a mini dress to show off the full look of the tights. If you love the reverse polka dot look as much as we do, why not completely cover your legs in spots with Henry Holland’s Reverse Polka Dot Tights! Available in classic black and a dark purple, these are sure to make your pins pop.

Love the reverse look? Dress like a superstar this season, literally, with the Henry Holland Reverse Star Tights. A modern twist on the popular Susperstar Multi tights seen on Jessie J, the Reverse Star Tights feature sheer stars in a combination of 60/20 denier. Wear them with a short skirt or short shorts to really make your legs stand out on a big night. If you want a pair of funky tights that are sure to give you an edge, the Reverse Star Tights are for you!

Little Mix's Jesy Mixes It Up Again in Suspender Tights…

Anyone that heard Little Mix’s Radio 1 Live Lounge cover of Mumford & Sons “I Will Wait” will agree that it was simply stunning. And of course, the girls turned up to the studio sporting their trademark edgy style. As I’m sure you won’t be surprised to hear that we’re tights aficionados, we immediately zoned in on Jesy who was rocking suspender tights with fishnet detailing. We loved the way she styled them with a slogan t-shirt dress and long necklace.

Mock hold ups with extra detail have replaced the classic suspender tights design as the style du jour. Here are our favourite 3 styles:

Little Mix's Perrie Rocks the Luxe-Casual Look in Jonathan Aston

We’ve always known that Little Mix were great fans of the Statement Tight (Henry Holland did create their own personalised Alphabet Tights for them, after all), plus last month the girls rocked the FAST at Jonathan Aston Scramble Bodies on Daybreak. So we weren’t surprised to spot Perrie Edwards in the extremely pretty Jonathan Aston Fantasy Tights, which she teamed with a little denim playsuit and chunky winter coat.

We’d been all geared up to save these tights for our party frocks, but we love the idea of dressing these tights down like Perrie! In fact, the entire Jonathan Aston A/W collection is full of super luxe designs that we’ll now – thanks to Perrie – be teaming with casual basics. Here’s how you can rock the Aston-ista look without dressing up to the nines…

Who Wore it Best: Dione Bromfield vs. Jade Thirlwall

Dione Bromfield (singer and goddaughter of Amy Winehouse) and Jade Thirlwall from Little Mix have both been spotted out and about recently in a twist on the classic suspender tights.  Both girls stepped out in tights which were opaque to just above the knee and then gave way to sheer hosiery, with a pretty line of opaque hearts around the top of the opaque leg – perfect with Valentine’s day just around the corner!  You can get the look with the Pamela Mann Large Overknee Heart Tights (pictured), a snip at just £7.99!

Both girls are no stranger to exciting and unique hosiery – Jade stepped out in customised Little Mix Henry Holland tights just before her and the rest of the band won the X Factor, while Dionne has been spotted in suspender tights and polka dots among others.

Jade wore hers to the Tickled Pink Girls’ Night Out gig and teamed them with black shorts, and a zip up jumper

over a black shirt with a pink tie – see her look here.  Coincidentally, Dionne also performed at the gig and plumped for the classic suspender tights design.  However, the singer must have recognised Jade’s tights as she had worn them already – to switch on the Christmas lights at the Brunswick at the end of November.

Dionne dressed hers up with a black prom style dress but added an edge with some heavy duty black army boots.  A slick of pillar box red lipstick completed the look that earned her a nod of approval from the fashion elite including Vogue Italia, who named it their “Look of the Day” (see it here).  But Jade isn’t without her fair share of admirers, with designer Henry Holland counted among the bands biggest supporters.

So who do you think wore it best?  Do you like Dionne’s Punk Princess take or is Jade’s urban cool more your thing?  Tell us on Facebook or Twitter!

Little Mix Win X Factor Wearing Henry Holland!!!

We’ve been rooting for X Factor winners Little Mix right the way from the beginning, and so we were absolutely thrilled when the girlband stormed their way to victory on the show at the weekend.  Fiesty, cool and endearingly normal, we instantly fell for their quirky style (not JUST their love of hosiery, we promise!).

The best thing about the band’s fashion choices were that they shunned the traditional “sexy” girlband choices of teeny tiny skirts and sky high heels, preferring trainers and high street apparel – choices accessible to us mere mortals.  Or so we thought.

Enter Henry Holland, hotshot Brit designer and style icon, who made no secret of the fact that he was a huge Little Mix fan from the off.  The girls had already been spotted in various Henry Holland designs (including the All Over Bones Tights, pictured right, and the Superstar Tights) on the show.  But at the end of November, Jade was spotted wearing a very special pair of tights indeed (which you can see here), and wore them again for the X Factor final.  The customised Henry Holland tights looked like his bestselling Alphabet Tights, but on closer inspection, the letters, which on the original design spelt out “HENRY” on one leg and “HOLLAND” on the other, they spelt out “LITTLE” and “MIX”.

Let us just say right now: we still love Little Mix.  We would forgive them anything.  We will accept their fancy new bespoke designer clothes.  But we can’t deny it: we want customized Henry Holland tights so badly we could cry…

Shop the whole Henry Holland Collection for a slice of Little Mix’s style – from just £12 (AND with an exclusive MyTights discount of 25% on a different Henry Holland product every day until Christmas!)
