Alexa Chung braves Glasto mud in black opaques!

Alexa-Chung

Alexa Chung

Its festival season and you can always count on Alexa Chung to know exactly what to wear to pull off the perfect boho look, mud included! This weekend was no different, being spotted at Glastonbury with her pals in a pair of black opaque tights, along with a double denim ensemble and olive green parka. Paired with the obligatory black Hunter boots, the TV presenter turned model looked fab and showed us all that it’s possible to look great after 5 days cramped in a tent! The best part about this look is you don’t need to be Alexa Chung or attend a festival to wear it. Simple, functional yet brimming with appeal, here’s how you can recreate her look at MyTights.com.

Pamela Mann 50 Denier OpaqueTights in Black

Black opaque tights have a knack of working with just about anything in your wardrobe. While Chung paired hers with denim shorts, they’ll also work with summery tea dresses, pencil dresses for the office or LBD’s for evening events. Luckily for you MyTights has a wide selection of black tights for you to choose from, so you too can rock an Alexa Chung-inspired look this summer!

Can’t decide? Don’t worry; MyTights have already picked out the best products for you. The Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights are a must-have for any wardrobe, and most importantly won’t break the bank at just £4.95 a pair. However, for such a wardrobe staple, you may want to splurge; in that case, Wolford Pure 50 Seamless Tights are the way to go, with their host of quality features and slick seamless design. Or for a great middle ground, how about the Oroblu Sensuel 30 Tights, with their semi opaque appearance that’s ideal for slightly sunnier festivals.

These are just a couple of the black opaques on offer at MyTights, but be sure to check out our entire selection before you leave!

Laura’s Choice: Body Perfecting Hosiery!

Life: it has a habit of getting in the way, doesn’t it? Whether spending all hours at your desk or tackling the never-ending pile of ironing, there’s just never enough hours in the day for some well-earned me time. But forget fad diets and ‘miracle creams’ that do the exact opposite of what they say on tin, a brilliant way to perfect your look is with trusty hosiery! At MyTights, we believe that your legs are there to be looked after, which is why we’ve sourced the very best in body perfecting hosiery on the market. From tights that combat the curse of cellulite through to hosiery that smoothes over figures without lifting a finger, we’ve got the shortcut to body confidence covered.

 

Charnos Energising Support Tights

Charnos Energising Support Tights

Skin Perfecting Saviours

We know you already look fabulous, but if you crave a helping hand to perfect your pre-holiday skin, look no further than the Charnos Energising Support Range. Quite simply the hardest working hosiery on the market, this innovative collection not only looks great, but comes with a host of hidden features that would leave even Superwoman feeling inferior. Each of the products has been coated with a luxurious mix of Vitamin E, Sea Kelp and Shea Butter that actively moisturise your skin as you go about your daily routine. Not content with cutting your beauty regime in half, the range also helps to combat cellulite (yes, really!) through the use of compression that stimulates blood flow and prevents your legs from feeling lethargic. Who would argue with that?!

For medium support, check out the Charnos Energising Support Tights, opting for the Energising Support Knee Highs if it’s your lower legs that need pampering. Or if you require a little extra support, treat legs to the Firm Energising Support Tights.

 

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wave goodbye to imperfections: Coverage Tights

Working at a hosiery company, we’ve become accustomed to images of models with impossibly long legs and perfect skin, but we know that this isn’t a true reflection of the average woman. But instead of lamenting your imperfections, learn to love what you’ve got with our range of coverage tights! Similar to wearing make-up on your legs (just without the mess), coverage tights help to even out skin tone and mask blemishes such as scars or varicose veins.

The trick to finding coverage tights is to opt for sheers that are slightly thicker than the average (20-30 denier, ideally),  which are still sheer enough to achieve a summery look without looking like you’ve dressed for mid Feb. Top of the bill, for me, are the Wolford Neon 40 Tights. Don’t be fooled by the name; although these tights have the durability of a 40 denier, they appear like 20 denier tights, camouflaging your flaws and coming with a suitably glam glossy finish. For something a little more affordable, Italian brand Oroblu also have a great option with their Sensuel 30 Tights. Available in 7 shades and with a slight sheen for day to night versatility, these tights are virtually indestructible and will feel utterly lovely against your skin. Or for the same peace of mind but with a little extra luxury, make a beeline for the Falke Sensation Seamless 20 Tights, which come free from any seams, so you can wear figure hugging dresses to your heart’s content.

 

Aristoc Bodytoners Low Leg Toner Tights

Aristoc Bodytoners Low Leg Toner Tights

Control Top

Amongst everything else we have on our to-do list, it’s not always easy to find the time (or motivation) to exercise. If you’ve found your gym pass gathering dust, control top tights may be the perfect solution. Defining your silhouette and remaining completely hidden from outside view, control top tights appear just like any other fashion-forward hosiery, but come with secret panels to smooth over the most common problem zones. It’s an absolute must for me to point you in the direction of the Aristoc Bodytoners Range, comprising 5 pairs of tights that target different areas of your body. From the Tummy Tuck Tights for your midriff to the Low Leg Toner Tights for your tum, bum and thighs, this range of sheers is affordable, effective and should be your first port of call! For stronger control, the same name always crops up: Spanx! It’s not all about shaping suits and the like at Spanx HQ, either, as they actually also produce shaping tights. The Spanx In Power Line Super Shaping Sheers combine strong control shorts with inbuilt sheer tights – one secret we’re very happy to keep. Or for smoothing control with the quality of Wolford, head to the Wolford Individual 10 Control Top Tights, offering a high-end look that will stand the test of time. After something a little more purse-friendly? The Charnos Killer Figure Hourglass Control Tights are just the ticket with their medium control, slight sheen finish and reinforced toe.

Whatever your body insecurities, you’ll find the answer at MyTights!

Until next time…

Joan Collins & Jerry Hall: Sheer Tights!

Jerry Hall + Joan Collins

Jerry Hall + Joan Collins

 

Try as they might, but the stars of today have a long way to go to replicate the timeless styles of older generations. Case in point: this fabulous photo of Joan Collins and Jerry Hall that emerged this week, posing together at the Cartier Queen’s Cup Final – that’s polo to us normal folk! Radiating Hollywood glamour and looking as youthful as ever, Jerry wore a tailored tweed suit, whilst Joan (who is 82 can you believe?!) opted for a pastel peach suit and extravagant hat. Their outfits did have one thing in common however – beautiful sheer tights! Choosing skin tone shades for a natural look and providing their pins with just a hint of coverage, the pair showed just how fabulous sheer tights are for summer events. From weddings to garden parties, here are a few of our favourite sheer sensations:

 

Wolford Sheer 15 Tights

Wolford Sheer 15 Tights

Wolford Sheer 15 Tights

From supremos of luxury Wolford, these 15 denier tights are available in four shades, and offer a natural look with their matte finish. What’s more, they have a sandal toe, keeping all you open-toes shoes a reason to celebrate!

Oroblu Magie 20 Tights

Offering your pins a polished look that’s perfect for special occasions, these 20 denier sheers have a very shiny finish that you’ll love and even better, come in 5 chic shades. Also available as a plus size version for fuller figured beauties!

Laura’s Choice: Bare Leg Look!

Okay, so the sun might be hidden beneath some rather contentious looking clouds, but it’s definitely making an appearance. For the first time this year, it actually feels like summer. For most, this probably mean jugs of Pimms and underestimating your ability to burn, but at MyTights HQ it means something very different indeed: bare leg look hosiery, of course! Quite literally the way to every girl’s heart, bare leg look styles are a seriously stylish proposition of late. In fact, it was rumoured that Kate Middleton herself was wearing a pair on the steps of the Lindo Wing as she revealed Princess Charlotte to the world, although we hope for her sake they were hold ups rather than tights! Want to know more? Here’s why we love bare leg hosiery so much:

 

- They blend blemishes and imperfections, leaving your pins looking beautifully smooth and you feeling extra confident!
- No need to dig out the tanning mitt; they give legs a sunkissed glow and moisturised finish.
- For peep toe devotees, leg hosiery means you can wear strappy sandals and open toed footwear to your heart’s content.
- They provide some ever-so-slight coverage on chillier summer days (always a possibility!)

 

Can’t see the wood from the trees? Here’s our guide to bare leg look styles and how you can select the perfect pair for you.

Falke Shelina Tights

Falke Shelina Tights

Best for: an unbeatably natural look

When you’re on the lookout to add some bare leg styles to your drawer, it goes without saying that you’ll want to achieve the most natural finish possible. Cue the Falke Shelina Tights, otherwise known as my ‘can’t live without summer essentials’. I wear them all season long, and there really is nothing better on the market for giving your legs the flawless finish we all crave. 8 denier in appearance but deceptively strong (they use a 12 denier weave), they come in a plethora of skin tone shades, all of which have been specially adapted by dermatologists for the most natural look around. Who would argue with science? Another one of my favourites are the Pretty Polly Naturals 5D Sideria Tights, which utilise a bi-component Sideria yarn, meaning your tights will appear finer than their actual denier. Like the Shelina’s, they also come in a range of skin tone shades and also benefit from being just £6 a pair. No section of natural looking hosiery would be complete without the Charnos Simply Bare range. Available as a pair of 7 denier tights, a toeless equivalent and a pair of hold ups to boot, this 7 denier range gives a look that the Duchess of Cambridge herself would covet, without being a flash in the pan thanks to a 15 denier durability.

Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights

Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights

Best for: Darker Skin Tones

If there’s one thing that’s been neglected for far too long, it’s bare leg look styles for darker skin tones. Until this year, that is, when we became the very first online retailer to stock the Nubian Skin range. Fresh from media success including a mention by none other than Oprah Winfrey, Ade Hassan and her team have produced four true to skin shades designed specifically for women of colour. Available as a pair of 10 denier tights and hold ups, the range will provide your legs with a fabulously airbrushed look that you’ll adore. Or if you prefer to stick to the brands you know and love, you should also take a look at the Falke Shelina Tights in Noisette and Coffee, or the Oroblu Geo 8 Tights in Mandel, Dore and Bambi.

Best for: withstanding wear and tear

Summer can be expensive business. No longer do we stay confined to the house snuggling up by the radiator, it’s time to explore, socialise and be the jetsetter you’ve always dreamed of. So it makes sense to save some money where we can. One great way of doing that is to invest in bare leg hosiery that goes the extra mile, such as the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights for instance. Giving the same flawless look but with LYCRA® Fusion fibres to prevent any snags or catches from developing into ladders, these are a must for any frugal hosiery fans. On a similar note, another great choice are the Charnos Run Resist Sheer Hold Ups. Beautiful on the outside but tough on the inside, these 10 denier tights come in two skin tone shades and leave ladders as a thing of the past.

Best for: swanky events

From weddings to formal parties, if you’re lucky enough to be invited to a glitzy event, you’ll want your legs looking their best. When I feel like wearing something that’s a little luxurious, I never look past the range from Wolford, especially the newest member of their clan, the Transparency Tights. Packed full of quality craftsmanship and as natural as the name would suggest, at £12 a pair they’re also very reasonable for a pair of Wolford tights. Or if 10 denier is that little bit too thick for you, I’ve always been a fan of the Individual 5 Tights, which prove that paying that little bit extra can be beneficial in the long run!

Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights

Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights

Best for: sandals and peep toe enthusiasts

If you spent an hour last night painstakingly perfecting your pedicure, showing them off in a pair of toeless tights is a must. Toeless styles are ideal for giving you the same natural look but allowing you the possibility to wear your beloved strappy sandals and open toe shoes in the process. Available in five shades, my favourites are the Falke Shelina Toeless Tights, which now feature a handy toe loop to keep the tights in place no matter what. If you’re more inclined to wear a pair of hold ups, the same toeless style can be enjoyed in the hold up equivalent, too! Toeless styles are becoming increasingly popular nowadays, and all of our favourite bare leg ranges have taken note, so I’d also advise to check out the Pretty Polly Naturals 8D Open Toe Tights, Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights and Trasparenze Tropea Toeless Tights before you leave.

Of course, it’s not always easier to know which colour will be the best match for you when buying hosiery online, so if you do have any questions or enquiries, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer services team who will be more than happy to assist.

Until next time…

Fab in Fishnets – Alesha Dixon

Alesha Dixon

Alesha Dixon

 

While the emphasis may have been on the latest bunch of hopefuls competing in the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent, something else stood out for the MyTights team during last night’s results show. Taking to the stage for the first time in 4 years (time flies!), judge Alesha Dixon showed all the contestant how it’s done, with an all-singing, all-dancing rendition of her latest single. As catchy a tune as it may be, our favourite thing about the performance were her fishnet tights! It’s fair to say her extravagant two-piece was probably a little too risqué for a trip to the shops, but we loved her choice of legwear, so much so that we’ve rounded up our favourite fishnet fancies on offer. Perfect for this time of year, fishnets should form part of a summer capsule for any fashion-conscious lady. Here’s our top 5!

Levante Fishnet Tights

Levante Fishnet Tights

The classic

If it’s a classic net you’re after à la Alesha, the Levante Fishnet Tights are the perfect place to start, with two timeless shades and purse-friendly price. Every woman should own a pair like these, not only slotting seamlessly into your evening wear but your office wardrobe to boot.

The colourful

While we’d never turn our noses up at a pair of black fishnets, sometimes only a splash of colour will liven up our outfits. Fashion favourites Pamela Mann agree, with their Fishnet Tights, available in 9 colours, ranging from the safety of black through to Flo Yellow.

 

 

Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights

Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights

The Fashion Forward

As great as classic nets are, fishnets are forever being reinvented, and never more so than with the Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights, with a unique curved net that reminds us of the art deco period. Or if seams are your weakness, take a look at the Oroblu April Tights, with a side seam stretching along the outside leg compelte with attractive tricot effect.

The hold ups

It’s not only tights on offer at MyTights. If you prefer the look and feel of hold ups, treating yourself to the Pamela Mann Fishnet Hold Ups is a must, with their classic design and elegant lace tops. And just £5 a pair!

Nets never go out of fashion, so make sure you check out our complete range of fishnets before you depart.

Summer Staples: The MyTights way!

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

 While the weather might be feeling a little Jekyll and Hyde of late, with next week comes the beginning of June, which means one thing – its summer! Finally, it’s time to relegate your opaques to the back of the drawer, stock up on the suncream and bask in the rays of summer heatwaves (we hope!) The key to owning a summer wardrobe to be proud of lies in stocking up on staple items that will ensure you always have something suitable for the occasion. Whether for sun-soaked holidays, garden parties or the obligatory Saturday afternoon BBQ, MyTights are on hand to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch!

 

 

Staple: Floral

Where: Garden parties, BBQs, nights out

Often considered to be the epitome of a summer style, floral prints are as big as ever this season, but MyTights being MyTights, we have everything you could possibly need. For a classic floral print, check out the Oroblu Elaine Tights, with a lace-like floral effect running across a tulle base. Or for something a little more quirky, you’ll adore the Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights, with a striking side seam made up of brightly coloured floral motifs.

Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights

Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights

Nude Fishnets

Where: Nights out, the office

Listen up: no summer wardrobe is complete without pair of nude fishnet tights! Whether worn with sweet summer dresses or even in the workplace, nude fishnets are perfect for adding some interest to an otherwise bland outfit and keeping you feeling refreshed. The Levante Fishnet Tights in Naturel are perfect, opting for the Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights if you prefer a smaller net.

Staple: Pastels

Where: Weekend lunches, picnics

What would summer be without pastel hues? From chic lemon through to pretty pink, pastel colours are everywhere this season, so it makes sense to stock up. For a plethora of pastel hues, check out the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights, or the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks.

Staple: Ankle Socks

Where: Picnics, nights out, trips to the seaside

When it comes to adding a finishing touch to your ballet pumps, we choose ankle socks every time. Perfect with skater skirts and tea dresses, ankle highs add that final flourish to your look, without breaking the bank. For colour, look at the Trasparenze Marta Ankle Highs, or if you prefer something patterned, the Charnos Spot Ankle Highs are a must.

Staple: Patterned Footless

Where: Garden Parties, nights out

oroblu-butterfly-leggings-zoom

Oroblu Butterfly Leggings

Footless styles are ideal for the summer, especially as they allow you to wear all of your beloved strappy sandals and flats! Pattern is the way to go this season, and for a great pair check out the Oroblu Butterfly Leggings with their gorgeous mix of colours and butterfly motifs. Or for something a little more understated, take a look at the Oroblu Sherry Leggings, with their muted floral lace effect.

Celebrities LOVE hosiery: Get The Look!

Just like waiting for a bus, we’ve been waiting days to spot another fabulous celebrity hosiery look, and then three come along at once! From other sides of the globe and all choosing to wear hosiery in their own individual way, we bring you a round-up of celebrity looks, and how YOU can recreate them at the drop of a hat.

Iggy Azalea

Iggy Azalea

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Beginning with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, the 24 year old isn’t always known for her fashion choices, but that all changed this week when we laid eyes on these images, shot for a 100th birthday special of iconic underwear label Bonds. While we may not opt for an outfit quite so risqué, we fell hook, line and sinker for her grey over the knee socks. Boasting a classic ribbed design and with extra-wide black tops for a chic contrast, we think they look great with her heeled biker boots. What do you think? If you love her look as much as us, treat yourself to the Oroblu Lysette Over Knees, with the same ribbed finish and wide band. Or if you want to copy her look down to the colour, check out the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto!

 

Charlotte Crosby

Charlotte Crosby

Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings

From an internationally acclaimed rapper to everyones favourite George Shore hellraiser, we spotted Celebrity Big Brother winner Charlotte Crosby on the streets of London in a funky pair of patterned leggings. We love fashion leggings at MyTights – there really is nothing better for brightening up your basic pieces. Charlotte clearly agrees, teaming her marvel inspired leggings with an oversized jumper and white trainers. To get your hands on a similarly fun look, check out the Pamela Mann Fleur de Lis Leggings, covered in the fleur de lis prints for a regal feel. Or take things back to your childhood with the Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings, covered in an assortment of retro sweets that you can enjoy without having to worry about your figure.

 

Tallulah Willis

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Last but not least, we simply had to comment on this adorable look from Tallulah Willis. Having been raised by Demi Moore, the 21 year old was always going to know a thing or two about looking good, and this ensemble more than caught our eye. Bridging the gap between a dressed down vibe and statement appeal, she tucked a denim shirt with a suede skater skirt, finishing the look with sheer black tights and sparkly ankle socks. A stellar performance if we say so herself, recreate the look with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights and the Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks, a combination that’s bound to make you a style star. Or if ankle socks aren’t for you, layer the Pretty Polly Sparkle Rib Over The Knee Socks over your sheers for a similar shimmer.

 

We can’t keep up – it’s a hosiery takeover. Keep checking back for more celebrity looks soon!

Finer than leggings and available in every colour of the rainbow, we’re here to let you in on all of our footless style secrets to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch…

The wallet warriors

Proving that a fabulous footless style needn’t cost the earth, stocking up on the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights is a must. Leaving you with change leftover from a fiver, these 50 denier lovelies are thick enough to cover your legs, without overheating should a summer heatwave take hold (unlikely, I know!)

Thanks to innovative elastic fibres, these footless tights have a generous stretch that will move alongside your legs, as well as adding a dash of durability and leading to a beautifully even appearance. Oh, and with 16 colours in the mix, all of your outfits can join in on the fun!

The secret saviours

Any of you who regularly read our blog will know we love hosiery with hidden benefits. After all, who doesn’t want as much from their money as possible? With the mercury rising, I have to point you in the direction of the Pretty Polly Coolsense Footless Tights. While you may fool the outside world into thinking these are any old pair of footless tights, they’re actually made from Nilit Breeze yarns. None the wiser? Considerably smoother and lighter than other footless styles, the innovative yarns mean that you’ll always stay at least 1◦c cooler than usual, keeping you feeling lovely refreshed – even after a mad dash for the bus!

Paying homage to the trend for patterns and prints, another of my top picks are the Trasparenze Graphium Leggings. Coming in at a 40 denier, these decorative leggings are covered in an ornamental paisley print to rack up the style points. Or if you’re forever falling under the charms of lace, opt for the Oroblu Sherry Leggings, new for SS15 and coming with a sumptuous floral lace effect against a tulle base.

Celebrity Style: Over the Knee Socks!

Celebrity Looks

Celebrity Looks

Although this week may suggest otherwise, the month of May means that summer is well and truly on its way. At last, we hear you say. But before you shed off the winter layers in a frenzy, it’s not quite warm enough to opt for bare legs. This would lead most people to opt for sheers or semi-opaques, but the MyTights team have noticed another trend sweeping the nation of late – over the knee socks! Giving the perfect compromise between keeping you snug and a fashion-forward look, it’s not just us ordinary folk who have been swept up in the trend, with a host of celebrities also jumping aboard. Spotted on the streets, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall was last week papped in a flirty yellow plaid skirt and black over-the-knee socks for a  casual ensemble that we adored. Meanwhile across the pond, Megan Fox was spotted during filming for her new film donning a sexy blue plaid skirt and completing her look with yep, you guessed it; over the knee socks.

Khloe Kardashian: Get The Look

Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian

Whether you can’t get enough of their fly on the wall way of life or wish they’d disappear off the face of the Earth, the Kardashian clan always grab our attention when it comes to their fashion choices. Whilst it’s usually Kim who takes the limelight, we recently spotted younger sister Khloe (with the obligatory K, of course) on the streets of London in a particularly vampy pair of thigh-high boots. Open in the centre and fastened with an eye-catching lace up-design, Khloe’s look certainly turned heads, but as unique as it was, there’s no denying that thigh high leather boots are probably a little risqué for us mere mortals.

Oroblu Janis Over Knees

Oroblu Janis Over Knees

That doesn’t mean you can’t emulate her look however, and we have just the way with the Oroblu Janis Over Knees. New for SS15, these 70 denier socks are certainly not for wallflowers, that’s for sure, with an alluring sheer panel running up the centre, complete with a mock lace up design. Perfect for bringing out your inner vixen from behind the shadows, these will look gorgeous either teamed with a skater dress and heeled boots for a night on the dance floor, or with denim shorts and a simple tee for a daytime fling.

Fans of alternative fashion, take note! You may not be a Kardashian, but with these in your repertoire, you may find yourself attracting just as many double-glances!

Not the style for you? Why not check out all of the socks from the Oroblu SS15 range?
