Top Spring/Summer Styles

moulin-rouge-metallic-seam_1This season let your accessories do the work for you and stay on trend easily with these handy tips…

 

White Tights

Recently spotted on Suki Waterhouse, white tights aren’t for the faint-hearted, but when done correctly they look divine. For a splash of celeb style, follow Suki’s example and wear them with a pale pastel pink dress and platform sandals to get in on that “socks and sandals” trend. We recommend matching your pastel pieces with the Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights made from 70% wool and available in Bianco Lana, as these wool tights are both cosy and chic. For a purse-friendly version then plump for the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights available in a huge range of colours including white. Curvy ladies will love the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Plus Size Tights designed especially for voluptuous figures. Now we can confirm that it’s official: white tights are not just for children but essential for nailing that pastel trend.

 

Metallic

It’s time to unleash your inner magpie and indulge in some serious glitter. Metallic tights and socks are the perfect way to embrace this trend without suffering from ‘shiny overload’. Get a sultry leg lengthening effect with the Moulin Rouge Metallic Seam Tights in 10 denier, from the front they look just like a normal pair of black sheer tights but as soon as you twirl round you can see their glittery line that travels up the back of both legs. If those fashion tights aren’t quite glittery enough for you, then check out the Jonathan Aston Lurex Anklet, full to the brim with gorgeous glitter. Style these stunning socks with flat pointed shoes and a full length lemon yellow coat.

 

Floral

What do we all think of when it comes to Spring/Summer, yes you guessed it: flowers. Give this pretty trend a more modern update with the Wolford Delia Tights in 20 denier with their floral take on polka dots. If you think lace is ace then you will adore the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Tights with their rose patterned design – these popular tights have been styled by Vogue no less, now if that won’t convince you I don’t know

what will!

 

Whether you’re a floral fan, metallic lover or adore all things white, we hope that we’ve helped you find your perfect pair of tights so that you can adopt those trends with panache.

A MyTights Experience: London Fashion Weekend

In January, I abandoned my home in freezing cold Minnesota—located in the United States—and travelled to a fast-paced city consumed with fashion. In a little over two months, London has made me obsessed with staying updated on popular and upcoming styles. This was especially apparent after London Fashion Week.  I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a designer and a trend catwalk and interning at MyTights has possessed me to find tights to accompany these upcoming trends!

pink-floral-tightsDuring the designer catwalk show, I watched Maria Grachvogel’s garments float down the runway. They were very feminine, made with chiffon and consumed with bold neutrals (especially brown) and pastel colours. The dresses and tops were also a bit oversized and flowy, which actually accentuated femininity.  I think that the Wolford Sheer 15 Tights would correspond perfectly with chiffon and flowy garments because they are very fine and mimic the sheer look of chiffon.

I also attended a trend catwalk. In this show, there were three specific trends that were highlighted for the spring and summer season. I’ll give you a hint- they were titled “Flower Power”, “Good Sport” and “Precious Metals”.

The first trend “Flower Power” featured—you guessed it—big and bold flowers. Pamela Mann Ditsy Pink Floral Tights are patterned with floral and summer colours.  The Jonathan Aston Poppy Hold Ups and Jonathan Aston Rosy Tights (I would recommend the nude ones) are also bold, but create a twist on this upcoming trend with the flowers embedded into them.stardust-glitter-seams

The second trend, “Good Sport”, was inspired by sports and athletics. The colours included vibrant orange, red, white and blue, and the designs  used geometric shapes and were paired with tennis shoes. The Charnos Stripe Mesh Tights subtly mimic the look of a referee’s shirt, which can carry-on the sporty look with any garment, but especially an athletically enthused one.

The last trend, “Precious Metals”, included metallic pleats—especially gold. The Trasparenze Charter Hold Ups and the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Tights will help you shimmer into the summer trend. The Jonathan Aston Stardust Tights also add a hint of this trend in the seam without being consumed by it, which is a great way to include this trend into your wardrobe for daytime.

I can’t wait to whip out my trendy tights this summer and I hope sharing my experience will help you embark on a summer full of fashion!
