Tag Archives: National Stockings Day

Remember, remember, the 19th of October…

…Because it’s National Stockings Day!

Now don’t get us wrong, we love wearing tights. They’re easy, versatile and we don’t even know they’re there half the time. But there’s just getting away from the fact that stockings are the ultimate hosiery choice when you want something super luxe. Yes, hold ups give a similar feel but for full on retro glamour you need stockings, and what better excuse to work them than National Stockings Day, which is taking place on 19th October?

Charnos hosiery are using the day to raise money for Breast Cancer Care and have organised events in London, Manchester and Glasgow. In the House of Fraser stores on London’s Oxford Street and in Glasglow, troupes of can can dancers will perform; while in Manchester a team of stockings-clad ladies will be storming the city with their collecting tins. » Read more

National Stockings Day!

If you didn’t know already, yesterday was National Stockings day, which was created by Charnos as a celebration of hosiery.  If you missed it, fear not – we’re celebrating all week!

These Charnos Models were spotted yesterday celebrating in their stockings in front of St. Paul’s cathedral – how fab do they look?!  (And brave, too – as temperatures in the capital plunged as low as 4°c yesterday).  Brr.

Get the look with the new hold ups and stockings from Charnos’ 75th anniversary collection.  Will you choose the Marylin Stockings, with their sexy backseam and dainty bow detailing, the Ava Hold Ups, with a gorgeous floral backseam design, or the classic Katharine Stockings, with their luxury feel and ladder resistant finish? It doesn’t really matter – whichever one you choose, Charnos will donate £1 to Breast Cancer Care for each pair sold until Sunday! (Although we would recommend at LEAST putting on a scarf, too).

Not a fan of Stockings?

If you find them too cold, uncomfortable or exposing, Charnos have also created three pair of beautifully crafted tights, so you can still ooze glamour wherever you go.  From the Jackie Tights, with their sexy back seam and dainty bow and diamante detailing, to the timeless and yet so now Brigitte Tights, with their polka dot and Swarovski crystal design, Charnos have taught us a lesson in Hollywood glamour.

Whatever you’re after, take a look around MyTights.com.  For every size, occasion and style, there’s a pair of tights just waiting to become your perfect fit.
