The Brit Awards 2015: GET THE LOOK!

Taylor wowing the stage!

Taylor wowing the stage!

 The who’s-who of the music industry turned out in force on Wednesday night to celebrate all the amazing music that’s graced our airwaves over the last 12 months. With Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran deservedly being the biggest winners on the night, perhaps The Brit Awards 2015 will be best remembered for Madonna’s dramatic tumble off the stage. Ouch! That’s put us off wearing capes for life (like we would anyway.) While Madge’s mishap was definitely a talking point, another thing that caught our eye was the array of lovely legwear that adorned the pins of the music elite. Not only Madonna herself, but we also spotted Taylor Swift and Paloma Faith, who were both winners on the night FYI, accessorising their look with some fashion-forward hosiery.

It’s not only musical talent that Taylor and Madonna have in common, with both performing in a pair of vampy fishnet tights. Teaming hers with a sophisticated black playsuit, Taylor took to the stage in true fashionista style, finishing off her look with some leather heeled ankle boots. While we’re envious of Taylor’s never-ending pins, the good news is everyone can copy her look for undoubtedly a fraction of the price paid by Swifty herself.

Looking at least a decade younger than her 56 years, Madonna also wore fishnets as part of her sultry Matador get-up, pairing her legwear with high-waisted cropped trousers, blouse and that now infamous cape! To copy the star looks, the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights are ideal, and what’s more, are only £5 a pair – how’s that for value? For the more experimental amongst us, they also come in eight shades should you want to mix and match with some colour.

Moving on now to Best British Female Paloma Faith, we’ve long been a fan of her kooky style. Opting for a floor length number for the night itself, her after party attire saw her wearing a Peter Pan collar lace mini with quirky boots and chocolate brown ankle socks. Her sophisticated look was right up her street, particularly her socks, which added a sweet twist to her lace dress.

 If you were a fan of her look, why not recreate it with the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Marrone. Brown not for you? They also come in 12 other colours…every colour of the rainbow in fact.

Review: Charnos Honeycomb Tights

Reviewer Emma  EmmaCharnosHoneycomb
Product Charnos Honeycomb Tights
Range N/A
Colour Black
Size S/M (I’m a size 10 in trousers)
Price £6.00
Colour Comments (if applicable) N/A
Appearance comments An intriguing alternative to Fishnets. The appearance will depend slightly on dress size. The honeycomb effect will be clearer for curvier ladies, whereas, if you’re slim the look is more subtle.
Appearance Score  9/10
Feel comments The textured structure of these patterned tights feels great to the touch. Considering that I bought a size too small, I’m impressed that even after my evening chocolate binge, the flat waistband still felt really comfortable. Clearly these sheers won’t give you as much protection from the elements as fleecy opaqees, but they still felt pretty warm even though I wore them on a very cold winter’s day.
Feel out of ten 10
Fit comments  I plumped for a S/M because my dress size is 8. However, the tights felt a bit small because I usually take a 10 in trousers/shorts. If you are borderline between 2 sizes (like me) then l would advise choosing the larger size. The boxer brief felt quite tight but this would be solved by getting the larger size.
Fit out of ten 7/10
Value for Money Comments At £6 these tights provide very good value for money for such a lovely design. l am extremely happy with my purchase and keen to try out new Charnos products.
Value for Money out of ten 10
So, Does it Work? N/A
General comments A subtle and sexy take on the classic fishnets look.
Any Tips or Care Instructions? Again go for a bigger size if in doubt. With regards to washing, a machine wash should be fine for these tights if you do not have time to wash your tights by hand, though we alwayd recommend using a hosiery bag.

So here’s to you, Mrs. Middleton…

carole-middleton-patterned-tights-zoomFashion ?controversies? never cease to amaze us ? first of all it was Kate Middleton?s nude tights, now her mum Carole has been making waves with her own legwear.? Stepping out in Chelsea yesterday in a chic black ensemble, Mrs. Middleton teamed a double breasted black coat with lacey patterned tights.

The world immediately declared themselves shocked at her (and I quote) ?awful? choice of hosiery.? Erm? really?? Many have criticised her for dressing too young, because her hemline was ? shock horror ? about three inches above the knee.

What?s all the fuss about?? It?s not like she?s parading round in a minidress and fishnet stockings (though Madonna, 55, frequently does) ? it?s a pretty standard outfit in our opinion ? not quite Lady Gaga.? In fact here at MyTights HQ we think she looks sensational!? The look was elegant and pulled together, with nothing revealing or trashy ? in fact it was so conservative it might even have bordered on boring, were it not for the fabulous lace tights covering her (amazing!) legs.

Too old?? You?re never too old for fashion.? In fact she reminds us a little of national treasure Dame Helen Mirren, who at 68 doesn?t let her age stop he from wearing fabulous frocks and bikinis without a care ? and in our opinion Mrs.Middleton looks just as great as The Queen actress always does.? And if we look half as good as Carole does when we?re her age, we?ll be more than happy.? So we say bah humbug to all the haters ? we heart Carole?s style!

There are loads of fashion styles you can rock that are perfectly subtle enough to work with even a conservative dresser ? here are our top picks for getting Carole?s look?
