Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

We love nothing more than when two of our favourite music stars join forces; it always makes for a brilliant pop song. Eminem and Rihanna, Nelly & Kelly, the list goes on. Now it’s the turn of none other than Madonna and Taylor Swift to set the airwaves alight and produce a new song that we’ll undoubtedly have in our heads for months to come. Performing their much anticipated single Ghost Town at the iHeartMusic Radio Awards, it seems that it’s not just musical talent that the pair have in common, with both the undisputed queen of pop and current golden girl Swift performing in matching stockings!

In her first public performance since THAT fall at the Brit Awards and opting to play it safe and sit on a stool (wise move!), Madonna layered her black stockings over a pair of trademark fishnets, finishing off her vampy look with knee high leather boots and a rather odd corseted outfit. Taylor’s outfit, on the other hand, was a slightly more classic affair, wearing her lovely lace top stockings with a sleeveless black dress and knee high lace up boots. Two very different looks with one thing in common, the performance confirmed exactly what we knew – stockings are back. Are you loving their legwear? If you are, MyTights.com have a fantastic array of stockings on offer, be it winter-warming opaques or racy fishnets, so there’s no reason why you can’t replicate it should you wish…

If it’s a classic pair of sheer stockings a la Taylor you’re after, a great place to start is with the Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings. Near on identical to Swifty, the lace top adds instant glamour to your wardrobe, while the slight sheen finish is great for perfecting a polished evening look. Whether you follow Taylor’s lead and opt for an LBD or play it casual in a pair of denim shorts and statement tee, these are a fabulous (not to mention affordable) choice. Looking for something that’s a little more everyday? No problem, simply turn your attention to the brilliant Charnos Elegance Ultra Sheer Stockings, a case of the name speaking for itself, with their classic plain top and understated sheen. Great for the office, they’ll only set you back £6.25 a pair.

While we’d suggest accessorising your stockings with something a little more demure than Madonna herself, there’s no denying that her layered fishnet tights added some wow factor to her look. To mirror this, how about treating yourself to the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Stockings? All the sultry appeal of stockings but with a classic fishnet base to get everyone talking, there’s no easier way to give your simple evening wear an edgy twist!

Fallen hook, line and sinker for sultry stockings? Make sure you cast your eyes over our full range!

The Brit Awards 2015: GET THE LOOK!

Taylor wowing the stage!

Taylor wowing the stage!

 The who’s-who of the music industry turned out in force on Wednesday night to celebrate all the amazing music that’s graced our airwaves over the last 12 months. With Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran deservedly being the biggest winners on the night, perhaps The Brit Awards 2015 will be best remembered for Madonna’s dramatic tumble off the stage. Ouch! That’s put us off wearing capes for life (like we would anyway.) While Madge’s mishap was definitely a talking point, another thing that caught our eye was the array of lovely legwear that adorned the pins of the music elite. Not only Madonna herself, but we also spotted Taylor Swift and Paloma Faith, who were both winners on the night FYI, accessorising their look with some fashion-forward hosiery.

It’s not only musical talent that Taylor and Madonna have in common, with both performing in a pair of vampy fishnet tights. Teaming hers with a sophisticated black playsuit, Taylor took to the stage in true fashionista style, finishing off her look with some leather heeled ankle boots. While we’re envious of Taylor’s never-ending pins, the good news is everyone can copy her look for undoubtedly a fraction of the price paid by Swifty herself.

Looking at least a decade younger than her 56 years, Madonna also wore fishnets as part of her sultry Matador get-up, pairing her legwear with high-waisted cropped trousers, blouse and that now infamous cape! To copy the star looks, the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights are ideal, and what’s more, are only £5 a pair – how’s that for value? For the more experimental amongst us, they also come in eight shades should you want to mix and match with some colour.

Moving on now to Best British Female Paloma Faith, we’ve long been a fan of her kooky style. Opting for a floor length number for the night itself, her after party attire saw her wearing a Peter Pan collar lace mini with quirky boots and chocolate brown ankle socks. Her sophisticated look was right up her street, particularly her socks, which added a sweet twist to her lace dress.

 If you were a fan of her look, why not recreate it with the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Marrone. Brown not for you? They also come in 12 other colours…every colour of the rainbow in fact.

Mother-Daughter Looks

Like mother, like daughter. When it comes to fashion, most girls can’t help but have their wardrobe inspired by their mothers! This is especially true amongst famous families—and who can blame them? The Obamas, Middletons, Beckhams and even the Ciccones (Madonna) have daughters that follow similar trends in their hosiery and you can even mimic their looks with your own mum!mother-daughter-look-obamas-polaroid

The Obama girls are often overshadowed by the man of the (white) house, but that doesn’t stop them from looking fabulous. Michelle always keeps it chic and classy with a beautiful ensemble usually paired with plain opaques, but she recently started following the spring and summer trend with glossy sheers. They make her legs look moisturized and fit, without overpowering her look. Her daughters have a similar chic style with plain opaques, but show their youth with the popular colour blocking technique. The girls also matched each other in complimentary colors, how cute! You can get the Obama family’s looks with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights for mum and the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights for the daughters!mother-daughter-look-middletons-polaroid

Kate Middleton and her mother Carole also have corresponding classy styles; however they have recently started to differ in their hosiery. Kate is maintaining her royal appearance with her famous bare or almost-bare look while her mother has been adding a twist to her wardrobe with her elegant patterned tights. They both look stunning, and you can too with the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights for Kate’s classic look and the Charnos Diamond Net Tights for Carole’s chic legs.mother-daughter-beckham-polaroid

Victoria Beckham’s fashion choices are always making headlines and little Harper is well on her way to follow in mummy’s footsteps. Both babes were spotted in wool tights—mummy in black and Harper in white. The contrasting duo will continue to make fabulous hosiery choices, and you can match the Beckhams and your baby girl with the Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights and the Country Kids Warmer Tights.

mother-daughter-look-madonna-polaroidMadonna and daughter Lourdes have been turning heads for their edgy hosiery selections. Madonna has been getting attention for her eccentric fashion choices for some time and still uses her fishnets for a 80s throwback vibe. Lourdes is a rookie compared to her mum when it comes to making headlines in fashion, but she does so with ease by clashing a tartan skirt and stripy tights. Getting these looks has never been easier with the Charnos Fishnet Tights for a Madonna inspired legs and the Pamela Mann Stripe Over Knee Suspender Tights for Lourdes’ edgy ensemble.

Madonna Snaps Herself Wearing Fishnets

Trasparenze Rita Fishnet TightsCone bras, lace gloves and now fishnet tights (with little else!), Madonna has always pushed the boundaries in terms of style, cementing her position of Queen of Pop and style icon. Many however thought that she went a little too far and that a mother of four should keep her bum under wraps.

Captioned ‘Looking for Love in all the wrong places! Fear makes you focus… #rebelheart’, our favourite music diva was snapped wearing fishnet tights and (very skimpy) fetish underwear. Wearing a black hat over her long blonde curly hair, she posed in a wide zip-up belt featuring many buckles and a lacy bra.

For what it’s worth, I’m on team Madge- after all, if you’ve got it then flaunt it. Not to say that the combination of black tiny knickers with fishnet tights is really practical in British weather – even if we include the insulating properties of fishnets! However that being said, Madonna has always had her finger on the fashion pulse and so we predict that fishnets will be a big trend this season.

Now if you love fishnet tights but prefer to keep your underwear off Instagram, then we still have many different types of fishnet tights from which you can choose. For a classic pair that will drive everyone ‘Crazy For You’, turn to the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights, their sheer to waist brief means that you can wear any length of flirty hemline you desire, while their purse-friendly price won’t break the bank. If you fancy a ‘Girl Gone Wild’ style in a striking colour then turn to the Trasparenze Rita Fishnet Tights available in different sizes and colours from elegant emerald green to intriguing indigo. The Levante Micronet Tights have smaller holes  providing you with a subtle look that you’ll ‘Cherish’.

Whichever pair of fishnets you choose you can dress them up or down thanks to their versatile look. You can echo Madonna’s cheeky style and still walk down the high street without turning too many heads – simply team a pair of fishnet tights with a lace dress and leather buckled boots for a fetish inspired look that packs just enough (but not too much) raunch factor.

5 Ways to Wear: Fishnets

jonathan-aston-faith-tightsFishnets are having a bit of a moment at the, erm, moment.  We’re almost bored of talking about it, but it seems as though certain people have got very wound up by all the fishnet tights and leather on display at the Chime for Change concert in London last week.

With J-Lo strutting her stuff in fishnets and thigh high boots and Beyoncé opting for nude fishnets and leather micro shorts, their outfits certainly were showstopping – and not to everyone’s taste, we’re sure.  But we’d like point out that these were celebs on stage, not on the school run or down their local on a Friday night.  Much like the catwalk, stage costumes are meant to be highly visual and are not designed to translate to everyday life.  It’s also worth remembering that it was all for a good cause.

Whatever your take on their outfits, we’ve pulled together our top 5, completely wearable, ways to work your fishnets this summer…

How Not To Wear Stockings, By Madonna

Macy's "Material  Girl"  Collection LaunchMadonna’s appearance at the Billboard Awards on Sunday taught us one thing: however rich, famous and successful you might be, there are some looks you can’t work.  The pop icon might have won the award for Top Touring Artist for her hugely successful MDNA tour, but if there was one thing she was never going to win an award for, it was her outfit.

Who wore it best: Madonna vs. Ashley Greene

Gym-honed and wrinkle free she may be, but Madonna has received criticism for flouncing around on stage in teeny tiny hotpants and fishnet tights. The singer, 53, has embarked on her MDNA tour wearing outfits that are reminiscent of her heyday in the 80s – though some have (somewhat unkindly) pointed out that as she was (at most) only 32 then, perhaps she should be considering a more age appropriate outfit.

Across town, youth had it say in the shape of Ashley Greene who was snapped on the set of her new show, Americana, in New York. Teaming a pretty patterned yellow dress with buy viagra while overseas a hoody, slouchy boots and black fishnet tights, she showed how to rock fishnets in laid back daytime style.

Fishnets are having a moment right now and, as Ashley and Madonna prove, there

are no rules when it comes to how you wear them. Try coloured fishnets for a fresh, summery vibe – they look great with white cotton dresses when the sun is shining. Or try nude fishnets, which have a legion of celebrity fans including Rihanna and the Saturdays, who wore fishnet tights supplied by Mytights.com on their amazing tour.

Classic black fishnet stockings will never go out of style – if you’re worried that wearing them with hotpants and armwarmers (à la Madonna) might not look quite so good when you’re shopping in the supermarket as they do when you performing on stage in front of thousands of people, try wearing them with longer line knee length skirts and boots so you just get a glimpse of net as you walk.

What do you think of Madonna’s look? Should she be leaving it to the younger generation like Ashley, or is she simply showing off her hard worked for figure?
