Where would we be without our Dad’s? Whether they’re picking us up from parties or bailing us out when we’ve spent all of our wages in the week after payday, it’s time we gave something back. And what better opportunity than on Sunday June 21st – Father’s Day!

Laura’s Choice: MyTights Socks Style File

MT Socks Style File!

MT Socks Style File!

 

Here at MyTights HQ, we’re lucky enough to get the first glimpse of all the latest hosiery styles, fresh from the production line of the leading brands in the legwear market. But with this week seeing the arrival of June, our attention has turned away from thicker opaques and onto hosiery that’s more appropriate for the warmer temperatures, namely socks!  A far cry from being an unwanted gift from a great great aunt twice removed (or something like that), socks are emerging as a real fashion staple. Affordable, great for every season and capable of updating your whole look in a matter of seconds, the MyTights.com team thought we’d let you in on our style secrets, and show you how we’ve been decorating our feet in recent weeks!

Trasparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks

Trasparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks

Beginning with Customer Service & Operations Manager Nikki, who teamed a pair of grey knee high socks with black leather boots, and a dark grey dress. This is a fabulous example of how to wear knee high socks in a professional setting. Allowing you to reveal some skin while keeping the lower half of your legs happy, take a look at the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto, rolled down for a similar look. Made with an impressive 65% cotton for a soft feel without overheating, these deliver everything you could possibly want in a knee high. Or if you’re feeling brave enough to branch out from the safety of black, white and grey, make a beeline for the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks, available in not one, not two, but 19 shades, from the basics all the way through to eye-catching hues of yellow and orange.

Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks

Next up we have Marketing Assistant Chantel who, armed with the knowledge that ankle socks are as popular as ever this season, opted for a fun summery ensemble. Pairing a floral pencil skirt with red Converses, for us the pièce de résistance are her frilly ankle socks, which are perfect for adding a girly touch to any look! For a similar style, opt for the Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Sock, with an embossed floral design, attractive lilac hue and most importantly, scallop effect tops for a sweet style fix. Prefer something with a little more pattern? Be sure to check out the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks, which are covered in a handwritten scroll, spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ dilemma!

Now, something for the men! You might not know that MyTights.com stock a fantastic selection of men’s socks as well as women, as demonstrated by both Warehouse Assistant Jack (left) and Content Assistant Jack (right). Opting for the quirky collection from popular Swedish brand Happy Socks, Jack mark one chose to wear Happy Socks Men’s Dot Socks with casual trainers, skinny jeans and a sweater, while Jack mark two shows that patterned socks can add a splash of fun to office wear, wearing his Happy Socks Men’s Big Dot Socks with smart trousers and a pair of black brogues. If you’re keen to snap up the entire Happy Socks collection, what better way to save some cash than treating yourself to the Happy Socks Men’s Sock Gift Box, containing four pairs of combed cotton patterned socks for just £25?!

Charnos 2PP Flower and Diamond Sock

Charnos 2PP Flower and Diamond Sock

Last but not least we have Graphic Designer Jade, again choosing to add some colour to her look with some geometric socks. Wearing her patterned gems with white jeans and camel desert boots, socks like this are ideal for adding an instant style hit to everyday wear. If you’re a fan, check out the Charnos range, in particular the Charnos 2pp Flower and Diamond Socks. With one pair boasting an edgy diamond print and the other a sweet floral motif, these are perfect for keeping your feet feeling refreshed no matter the weather. Your sock drawer has never looked so fashion-forward!

Whether you swear by ankle socks or can’t bear the thought of a day without knee highs, MyTights.com have it covered. You can find our entire sock selection here.

Until next time…

Laura’s Choice: Wedding Season!

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

The wedding season is upon us! You’ve found THE dress, the best man has coiffed his speech to perfection, and your table decorations are everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Now all you need is some beautiful hosiery to match! Whether you’re the blushing bride, the hungover groom or the reluctant bridesmaid, MyTights.com have a fantastic selection of wedding hosiery to hand. From silk socks for guys through to the obligatory wedding day garter, we have just the thing to leave your legs looking their best on the special day. Now just to make sure you get to the church on time!

 

 

 

The Bride

Let’s face it, the bride is the centre of attention on every wedding day. With all eyes on your walk down the aisle, it’s vital that every inch of your look is perfect, including your hosiery! Looking for a classic bare leg look? The Wolford Transparency 10 Tights could be just the ticket. Appearing like you’ve braved bare legs, these 10 denier tights boast a beautifully natural finish and all the luxury features that Wolford are renowned for. And what’s more, with their lightweight finish, you won’t overheat no matter how long the train on your dress!

Or if you want something a little more romantic as you say your vows, check out the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Hold Ups, with a sumptuous lace effect and vintage backseam. For those of you who embrace all of the age-old traditions with gusto, the Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter is a must. Staying in place no matter how many pictures you pose for, the lace and ribbon effect makes for a fabulous finishing touch to your gown.

The Bridal Party

Upstaging the bride may be the ultimate wedding day sin, but that doesn’t mean the bridal party can’t look their best. For a rear that even bridesmaid extraordinaire Pippa Middleton would be proud of, how about trying out the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘butt-lets’ that slot into pockets and give your derriere a lift! For mothers of the bride, it has to be the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights. Offering a ‘no hosiery’ look but with failsafe LYCRA® Fusion technology, your legs will not only look flawless, but remain free from ladders from the ceremony to the after-party. If your dress is on the plain side, what better way to take your style up a notch than with the elegant Oroblu Adelle Tights? Covered in an array of dainty dots, these patterned gems are not only on trend but have a sheer to waist brief, meaning any length of hemline can work.

For the guests 

Whether it’s a distant cousin or a work colleague, looking fabulous for a wedding is a must! The great thing about being a guest rather than playing a part in a wedding is that you can really experiment with different kind of hosiery to accessorize your dress. One such way to do that is with seams, and, getting into the wedding spirit, we love the Pamela Mann Love Seam Tights. These 15 denier sheers have a slender backseam culminating in the word ‘LOVE’ etched on each ankle – how romantic! Or how about opting for a pair of fishnet tights? For something a little different to the norm, make a beeline for the Charnos Honeycomb Net Tights with a fine mesh fabric resembling honeycomb itself. Another perk of being a guest is that you needn’t worry about showing yourself up on the dance floor. Heels aren’t always forgiving, so make sure your feet stay refreshed with a pair of the Levante Shoe Monkeys Foot Cushions, taking the pressure away from your feet.

The Groom

 

Falke Tiago Men's Short Socks

Because it’s not all about the bride! Believe it or not, the groom plays a fairly big part in the day too, so it’s important they look suitably dapper. For a classic wedding day look, grab a pair of the Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks, made with 98% cotton for a beautifully soft finish and keeping your feet cool all day long. Or if you’re the kind of guy who likes to experiment with fashion, the Happy Socks Men’s Socks Gift Box should be your port of call. With four funky socks (spots, stripes and everything in between), the hardest part will be choosing which pair to sport on the big day.

With wedding pictures set to take pride of place on your mantelpiece, you’ll want to look as trim as possible. With that in mind, invest in the Spanx For Men range. Flattening your stomach, firming the chest and even improving your posture, simply layer beneath your suit and you’re good to go.

 

Have a fantastic day!

Laura’s Choice: Christmas Made Easy With Happy Socks

The one month klaxon has passed – we can officially get excited about the festive season! As exciting as it may be, the run up to Christmas can be a stressful experience, can’t it? Having to wade through masses of bargain hunters in shopping centre’s while enduring countless renditions of ‘Rocking Around The Christmas Tree’ isn’t exactly my idea of a relaxing Sunday afternoon. To make this year’s shopping a slightly more enjoyable experience, I thought it would be a fab idea to introduce you to our new Happy Socks range! For those of you who aren’t familiar, Happy Socks are a quality Swedish brand, famed for their wacky design and fashion-forward styling. In my book, that makes for a perfect Christmas gift, and good news, as this year they’ve launched a selection of fantastic new products for men, women and children – Happy Socks for all!

The ladies in your life

Everything you need to revamp your sock drawer, the Happy Socks Women’s Socks Gift Box contains four pairs of wonderful patterned socks, and with polkadots, stripes, argyle print and geometrics in the mix, it really can’t fail to make animpact and leave your loved ones with a huge smile on their face! Ideal for treating your wives or girlfriends, another great option is the Happy Socks Women’s Brief and Socks Gift Box; especially perfect if the lucky lady has a penchant for polkadots. My fashion motto at the moment is ‘if all else fails, opt for polkadots’, so if they’re anything like me, they’ll adore this set, with both items featuring a multitude of brightly coloured spots upon a black background. Seriously on- trend, both of these sets are also presented in an attractive gift box, scoring you extra points and saving you the monotonous task of wrapping!  If you’re on the lookout for affordable stocking fillers, Happy Socks have a huge array of products that would suit, the pick of the bunch for me being the Happy Socks Women’s Paisley Socks, with their intricate paisley print and vibrant colours.

Gifts for men made easy

Notoriously difficult to buy for, the men in your life can also benefit from the Happy Socks treatment! Starting with the budget busting, I love the Happy Socks Men’s Stripe Socks, which have a classic stripe design and contrasting heels, toes and bands. Available in five colour combinations, my personal favourite is the red, white and blue – perfect for channeling a nautical legwear look! If these are up your street, they’re also available as part of the brilliant Happy Socks Men’s Socks Gift Box, alongside three other wacky designs, encompassing polkadots, stripes and super-bright colour blocks. If your husband’s/boyfriends underwear drawer is in need of an overhaul, look no further than the Happy Socks Watermelon Men’s Brief, with a fitted silhouette and watermelon-esque design that’s anything but dull. Or kill two birds with one stone and treat him to the Happy Socks Men’s Briefs and Socks Gift Box, featuring both a boxer brief and pair of combed cotton socks in a, you guessed it… polkadot design! Also available as a boxer short if your man is that way inclined.

The little ones

Upping the cute factor, Happy Socks have also launched a range of quality socks and tights, perfect for filling up your little angels stocking for the big day. After all, Christmas is all about the children, isn’t it? Made with 80% combed cotton for

Happy Socks Baby & Kids Argyle & Stripe Socks

a lovely, soft feel and winter-warming effect, the range is durable, stylish and bursting with fun. Your daughter will love the Happy Socks Baby Stripe Tights, with their colourful stripy design and super-comfortable waistband. Knowing full well that children can be (putting it mildly) clumsy, they’ve also added a reinforced toe for some much-needed durability. If your kids are wildlife crazy, the Happy Socks Baby & Kids Animal Socks are the perfect festive gift, coming in a value for money two pack. Suitable for boys and girls alike, one pair features a tiger print and the other a leopard print, so your little ones will be spoilt for choice. Equally adorable, the Happy Socks Baby & Kids Argyle & Stripe Socks are available in an array of sizes, so children ranging from newborn to 4 years old can enjoy the stylish prints – a pack for every one of the brood, perhaps?

So there we have it, Christmas made easy, without so much as a queue or shopping centre in sight. All that’s left to do is pop open the Baileys and put on a classic Christmas film!

Love the concept but not found quite what you’re looking for? Check out our entire range of Happy Socks products, instead! Guaranteed to make you smile.

"Mankles": The New Look For Trendy Guys Everywhere…

First we had guyliner, then brosiery… and now Mankles.  The guys, it seems, can’t stop stealing our style, and now they’ve got in on the ankle socks trend too!  There have been a lot of cropped trousers with bare ankles going on, but we much prefer a flash of colour peeking out – it doesn’t have to look like John Travolta’s jiving outfit in Grease, either.  Just look at all round trendy guy Tinie Tempah, sporting a sunshine yellow pair of ankle socks under a brown and khaki heritage inspired look.

The ankle socks look is easy to work for guys and girls alike.  For socks in a great range of colours, girls should check out Falke Socks, which are high quality and come in a gorgeous range of pastel shades.  Or for something brighter like Tinie the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks come in colour pop brights.  Alternatively try patterned ankle highs like those from Pamela Mann or Pretty Polly which will look super sweet with sandals.

Guys should take a look at the collection of Burlington Cotton Socks which come in a traditional argyle design in bright colours like lime green, navy and red.  Cotton socks like these are ideal in the summer as they will let your feet breathe, but in the winter we suggest switching to wool socks which will keep your feet toasty warm and cosy, in

a darker colour for a subtler take on the look.  Try grey socks with black trousers or navy with grey.   Or if you’re treating him, cashmere socks like the Falke Lhasa Casual Rib Men’s Socks are a great gift idea.  These luxury socks are wear resistant but super soft, too.

A really quick and easy way to update your outfit, socks are inexpensive, easy to wear and come in a ton of different styles, so you can match them to your mood!
