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…

Nude Fishnet Fever!

Megan Fox adores hers, J-Lo refuses to go on stage without wearing hers and we even provided The Saturdays with theirs! It seems that our favourite starlets and red carpet favourites have gone nuts for nude fishnets – and we know exactly why!

Nude Fishnet Tights

Perfect for faking your way to a flawless skin tone, nude fishnets are the cheat’s solution to blemish free pins. Far foxier than your average sheers, fishnets have been long been an insider’s secret but thanks to a little (healthy) celeb stalking, we’ve managed to track down our favourite stars showing off their nets. Given that the majority of the high profile ladies are never without someone chasing them down the road for a cheeky snap, we can hardly blame them for wanting to keep their legs looking on point all day long. Whilst we can imagine that some would prefer to slob the day away in their tracksuits and PJs, flirty hemlines and stage costumes do await, leaving them turning to their oh so flattering fishnets.

As possibly one of the most glamorous girl groups since the Spice Girls (RIP), it’s no secret that we’re big fans of The Saturday’s style here at MyTights HQ. Never without a slick of lip-gloss and their trademark immaculate manes, we’ve spied the fab five donning nude fishnets on more than one occasion. And ladies, we’ll let you into a little secret. As we exclusively provided the girls with nets for their last tour, we know firsthand that they’re massive fans of the nude tone. Adding something special to their on-stage look whilst evening out skin tones, the Pamela Mann Fishnets will hardly break the budget. Ideal if you’re not too keen on going hosiery free but fancy a break from your black opaques, the netted tights work to deliver a comfortable and cosy fit all day long. Whilst you may not plan to jump on stage anytime soon, we suggest styling your new fishnet tights with a pretty sundress, adding espadrilles for a sweet seaside touch.And of course ladies, you can take our word on this! With no need for speculation, we’ve gathered the hard evidence that will leave you wanting to stock up on the style all year long…Laura

Moving on from the pint sized pop group, we’ve extended our fishnet search further afield, spying Gossip Girls’ very own Roxanne Mesquida wearing hers out and about. Known for her portrayal of a princess in the show, it seems that Roxanne has left behind all regal ambitions when it comes to getting dressed. Flashing her pins in a flirty dress, the actress has made sure to up the glam factor in a pair of nude fishnets, leaving behind blemish free legs. Stepping into gold peep toes to show off even more of the sassy tights, the former Gossip Girl shows us that when it comes to footwear and fishnets, just about everything goes! From quilted pumps to dainty sandals, no ensemble proves too tricky, as the lack of brief means you can even get away with any hemline that takes your fancy!

And fishnet fever doesn’t stop at starlets either. MyTights founder, Laura has been photographed sharing her mutual affection for nets too, teaming her classic Levante Fishnet Tights with an elegant dress and peep toe heels. TOP TIP: To lengthen and elongate pins, make like Laura and step into nude heels to create the illusion of never ending legs!

So what are you waiting for ladies? Take inspiration from your favourite VIPs and treat your hosiery drawer to some new nets now!

It’s a Lace Thing

ELLE Magazine Front Cover – September 2010

ellecover_jaWe knew that lace was back in style BIG TIME, from Edwardiana to the Gypsy Goth look, it’s been sneaking in everywhere. And we also knew that lace tights have been spotted on all the hottest trend-setters, from rock chic’s Peaches Geldoff, Taylor Momsen and Katy Perry, to the polished Olivia Palermo, Leighton Meester and Taylor Swift, and the uber-foxy Megan Fox, but then we saw this…

…Emily Blunt, when did you get so raunchy? The Devil Wears Prada star is just oozing sex appeal in this sensuous chiffon and lace combo. Looking like some sort of naughty Victorian courtesan, Blunt pulls this look off with effortless charm. Elle’s use of more mature contrasting colours, such as nude and black, has ensured that this outfit says both sexy and on-trend, rather than becoming trashy.

So, tossing the beautiful Ms Blunt aside for one second, the real star of the show is of course – drum roll please – Jonathan Aston’s Sweet Roses lace tights, as pictured this September cover of Elle Magazine. With their cut rose-inspired patterning they are elegant, individual, and above all oh-so feminine. Take a look at the whole of Jonathan Aston’s Vintage collection for lace hold ups and ankle socks too!

What’s so good about lace? I hear you cry. Well as much as your relationship with lace thus-far may have only gone as far as admiring your Grandma’s doilies’, or with the fussy bits on your bra – lace is actually a style classic. It’s a timeless way to add some delicate, and pretty charm to an outfit. But let’s not go mental, if you dress yourself in head-to-toe lace you will look like a cake.

Our tip for pulling this look off? JUST ADD A TOUCH, a pair of lovely lace tights with a little black dress is great, show a scandalous amount of leg while retaining your full dignity – perfect!
