Laura’s Choice: Picture Perfect Party Tights

It’s that time of year where tuxedos and party dresses don’t look out of place on a Tuesday evening on the tube; it can be only be the party season! And the parties really do come thick and fast in the next few weeks, be it a work gathering, Christmas drinks with the girls, not forgetting the biggest night of them all – New Years Eve. With a social calendar that busy, most of us don’t have the time (or budget) to buy a brand new outfit for each event. But fret not – hosiery is a fantastic and inexpensive way of  revamping and adding a new dimension to a wardrobe classic. With this in mind, I thought it would be a great idea if I rounded up a selection of my favourite party tights for your upcoming soirees!


I think there’s a misconception that creating a statement legwear look has to cost a fortune, but this really isn’t the case. A top recommendation of mine for achieving stand-out style on a budget is the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights. Available in an incredible 21 shades, it’s near on impossible not to find a pair to complement your outfit. What’s more, with  their flattering matte finish and sheer to waist brief, they offer a great deal of versatility for your party wardrobe, looking fabulous regardless of whether you favour a flirty mini or a fitted knee-length number. My favourites are the dark teal and rust – perfect with a classic LBD! Should you want legwear to give your look a racy twist, you really can’t go wrong with the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights. Fishnet tights are a fantastic way of adding a sexy element to an outfit, whilst still retaining an elegant edge, and these ones   have a timeless chic design that will work seamlessly with cocktail dresses. Why not also add a vibrant pair of heels for a pop of colour? Even better, they’re just £6 a pair, leaving you with change for a glass of vino or two.

Legwear for your work party

It’s often tricky to find the right mix between looking great and maintaining professionalism for work events. You want to feel confident and channel an on-trend look, but at the same time you want to dress appropriately for the context – it can be a nightmare! For me, the Oroblu Delices Tights are the perfect combination between chic and professional, featuring an overlapping diamond design and sheer panels that work together to create a visual effect that’s nothing short of stunning.  The key with these is to let your legwear do all of the talking, so opt for a pair of simple heeled sandals and an A-line dress and you’re set! Or if your work party is a little more glitzy, look in the direction of the Trasparenze Deejay Tights, which have an all-over glittery fleck against an opaque black backdrop. Guaranteed to satisfy your inner magpie, you’re also able to choose between gold and silver glitter to match your accessories to a tee. Following on with the sparkly theme (why not?), another option is the Charnos Lurex Spot Opaque Tights, with an array of symmetrical glittery dots and 40 denier matte finish. Allowing you to channel two of this season’s hottest trends – polkadots and embellishment, in one outfit, the shine with these is actually rather subtle, so they’re also a great versatile choice for dinners and drinks with the girls.

 New Years Eve 

December 31st is that one night a year where it’s a crime to be curled up in front of the television in your pyjamas. The biggest social night of the year warrants some fabulous tights, right? Right. So say hello to 2015 in style in the Pretty Polly Delightful Pretty Flirty Backseam Tights, which have a slender backseam and exquisite lace effect panty and heel for the ultimate in special occasion legwear.  Full of personality and sex appeal; go for all out glamour in a sequined mini and statement heels! Or if you love the retro look of backseams but crave even more glamour, I love the Moulin Rouge Metallic Seam Tights, with their embellished backseam and chic Cuban heel. Even better, they won’t break the bank, so there’s no need to feel guilty! If these are up your street, you’ll also love the Trasparenze Melantis Tights, which are just made for glitzy evening events. Starting at the mid thigh, these sheer tights have a gorgeous metallic backseam, made up of an array of tiny diamantes and merging into a pretty floral effect at the ankle.  A real lesson in opulence! If seams aren’t your thing, I’d also like to point you in the direction of the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Tights, with an intricate floral lace design for a classic legwear look that screams elegance and sophistication. A real lesson in opulence!

Tights for the kids

It’s not only us adults who feel the pressure to look good at this time of year! Your little ones are also bound to have a packed social calendar, and let’s face it, Christmas school discos ARE a big deal at that age. To avoid any unwanted tantrums, opt for the Country Kids Movie Star Tights, with a lurex star pattern that your daughter will just love. They’re also extra durable, with a reinforced toe and boxer brief, so you can rest assured that they’ll last for next year’s event, too! If she takes after her mummy, she’ll also be a sucker for a bit of sparkle. With this in mind, the Pex Sparkle Children’s Tights may be just the ticket for parties and end of term shindigs, with their metallic thread and super-shiny finish!

If none of these are right for your outfit, be sure to check out our entire range of party tights and socks before you leave!

Until next time…

The Financial Times Loves MyTights


Smashing the myth that an LBD is always the safe option, the Financial Times recently conducted a photo shoot with their models sporting high fashion black dresses with a selection of tights from Pamela Mann.

Even if the Moschino Cheap and Chic silk/polyester dress at ?695 is slightly out of your reach (more chic than cheap we?re thinking), fortunately the tights included in the feature come at a more reasonable price. To copy this look you can get our Moulin Rouge Palloni Tights, their reverse-spot style turns the classic polka dot look on its head.

Made from 40/20 denier these tights will keep you warm when you venture outside ? I recommend teaming with a polka dot dress in black with white spots and black patent heels for a co-ordinated look. The reinforced toe means that even if your makeup needs a touch up, your legs won?t ? thanks to the added durability you can dance the night away without a care! Fancy making a statement in the office? Team these striking sheers with a pencil skirt and white blouse for a dramatic yet elegant ensemble.

The Chanel silk-organza dress featuring on trend appliqu? flowers was matched with our Pamela Mann Solid Sheer Stripe Tights ? the perfect blend of girly and dramatic. Getting the look is super easy – team these sheers with a black dress with a subtle floral print. The simplistic design is perfect for a high end fashion look, and again the reinforced toe means that even as the styles change your tights will last.

Do you wear patterned tights to spice up your LBD? Or do you prefer classic sheers?

Moulin Rouge – Spectacular, Spectacular!

Spectacular, spectacular! I adore it when exciting new ranges arrive here at MyTights HQ, and the latest ?is no exception. Inspired by the glamour and elegance of the original Moulin Rouge, hosiery experts Pamela Mann have joined force with the dance hall, creating a fabulous range of gorgeous new tights. From backseams to polka dots and even Swarovski crystals, it?s safe to say that this is the range your hosiery drawer has been waiting for.

Moulin Rouge

Created in Italy and modelled by actual dancers (hence the enviable leg silhouette in all images), these are the perfect marriage of great quality and classic designs. Staying true to the decadent and elaborate reputation of the Parisian dance hall, each addition to the collection has been designed to deliver a touch of showgirl glamour whilst remaining demure enough for everyday wear. With ten designs and ten opportunities to add a little flirty fun to ensembles, too much choice will quickly become your only problem on a Monday morning!

Seams, spots or sparkles? Whichever your preference, you?ll swiftly discover your favourites amongst the collection, with more than one option to appease your hosiery drawer. If you?re an advocate of the retro revival, then the High Heels Tights from Moulin Rouge will tick all boxes. Finished with a Cuban heel that peeks over the tops of your shoes and a delicate backseam that elongates legs, these will look perfect paired with a tea dress and on trend courts. What?s more, with five shades to opt for, including a flashy metallic and a demure nude backseam, we?ve given you a reason to reinvent your wardrobe before the new season (read: permission for a shopping spree). For those seeking something a little different but who refuse to surrender seam intentions, the Heart Seam Tights are ideal. Doing exactly what they say on the tin, pretty hearts travel down the back of your legs, delivering plenty of charm as they do. And quirky brides-to-be should take note! Whilst these are available in a versatile black, these also come in a pearly white, covering that ?something new? on your list.

However, my personal highlight of the collection has to be the vast amount of spots & dots on offer. From miniature plumetis (a fine spot design named after a style of French stitching)? to the bolder and bigger dots decorating the Palloni Tights, it becomes apparent that the collection has been given a hefty dose of the trend du jour. For a flattering and fresher alternative to your everyday sheers, the Plumetis Dot Tights in Navy are highly wearable, going well underneath shift dresses, circle skirts and those city shorts. Hotly tipped to become the next big shade, navy is a softer take on the uniform black that seems to dominate work spaces, leaving you with on trend pins and one step ahead of the fash pack.

For those who truly believe that diamonds are a girl?s best friend, may I point you in the direction of opaques complete with Swarovski embellishment. Yes, that?s right, no longer content with furnishing the inside of your jewellery box, the glittering household name has now turned to our tights. Most certainly inspired by the glitz & glam that?s to be found inside the Moulin Rouge, you?ll find your black opaques decorated with tributes to the dance hall.? With either a miniature windmill (yes, a windmill!) or the Moulin Rouge name itself to opt from, the Swarovski Embellished Tights are one way to secure your place in the leg limelight. Carefully hand glued on with painstaking precision, the crystal detail will complement that evening dress, or jazz up that tired pencil skirt. Simply add heels and a ruby red lip to complete the look, clocking up that ?je ne sais quoi? in the process.

So whether you?re searching for a little oh la la or the perfect pair of tights to kick start your hosiery collection for the season, I can guarantee you?ll find your answer in the Moulin Rouge collection. The fight for first dibs at MyTights HQ begins now…

?Until next time!
