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!

Purse-friendly

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…

Seduced By Stripes: Taylor Swift Does It Again

Another week, another blog about the legwear choices of global pop sensation Taylor Swift. This is becoming a bit of a habit, isn’t it? We know, we know… she no doubt has an array of stylists tending to her every move, but we’ve rarely come across a celebrity who manages to get it right as often as Taylor. This week, she was papped leaving the Cath Kidston store in Covent Garden in a lace roll neck jumper, tartan skirt and the pièce de résistance (for us at least), a pair of stripy sheer tights. The MyTights team have been cooing over her legwear ever since the photos hit the press earlier this week, and for good reason. Stripy tights are a fabulous way to update a tired outfit, and even better, if you opt for vertical stripes, they have a real leg lengthening quality, creating the illusion of never-ending pins.

Sure to get the temperatures rising, choose between blue and black to perfectly complement your wardrobe!
  3. Pamela Mann Twicker Tights – fans of alternative fashion will adore these eye-catching opaque tights, featuring horizontal stripes for a stand out legwear look and a pop of colour, Available in no less than 5 vibrant shades!

Pretty in Polkadots: How You Can Recreate Anne Hathaways Legwear Look

Les Miserables star Anne Hathaway seems to have an endless supply of unfeasibly chic outfits in her repertoire, doesn’t she? The nicest lady in Hollywood, and all round style icon, this week stepped out in a fabulously chic outfit, on a rare break from her week of non-stop press for latest film Interstellar. Teaming her V-neck blouse with statement jewellery and a velvet mini, the real star of the show was undoubtedly her legwear; an elegant pair of sheer polkadot tights, which have been causing quite the stir in MyTights HQ.

Polkadot tights are a super-cute and playful alternative to standard hosiery when you want to add some interest to an otherwise plain outfit.  A key fixture on the catwalks in recent years, polkadot tights can work seamlessly from day to play, and have adorned the legs of countless celebrities in recent years. Not wanting to name drop, you’ll be in the sartorial company of the likes of Alexa Chung, Cheryl Fernandes-Versini and Diane Kruger. Not bad, huh? The good news is that there really is something for everyone, so regardless of your style, occasion or budget, you’re bound to find the perfect pair for you!

If you want to add some personality to your work wardrobe, the Oroblu Adelle Tights are a great choice, with their pretty polkadots and reinforced toe, making them the ideal legwear for everyday use. For the colder weather, look no further than the Wolford Alyssia Tights, which feature an array of tiny holes to show off a subtle glimpse of skin. What’s more, with their 40 denier finish, they’ll also ensure your legs are protected from the winter chill!

Ideal for a lunch with the girls, we love the Wolford Rice Dot Tights, with their multitude of raised dots and textured appearance. Giving your pins a high-end look, team with a cute day dress and heeled ankle boots for maximum impact. Or if you’re looking for spotty hosiery for a day’s retail therapy, look no further than the Pretty Polly Spot Opaque Tights. A real winter warmer with their 100 denier finish, these grey tights have a black polkadot pattern running throughout – opt for black denim shorts and a chunky knit and voila…a perfect polkadot look for the winter!

Polkadots can form part of your evening ensemble too. For something super glam, we recommend the Charnos Lurex Spot Opaque Tights, which are covered in tiny embellished spots for a stand out look – crying out to be worn to a special occasion!

Delightfully dotty fashion for all! Check out our entire range of polkadot inspired hosiery before you go!

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights

After months of cutting back on the carbs and ensuring our pins are hair-free and beautifully moisturised, winter is finally here. At last – time to lean back, reach for the biscuit tin and embrace our opaque tights, right? Well, if the recent legwear choices of high-profile celebrities are anything to go by, wrong. It would seem that winter warming opaques and wool tights are out, in favour of natural bare legs, with The Daily Mail reporting that the likes of Victoria Beckham and Suki Waterhouse at the forefront of this, quite frankly, ludicrous trend. The MyTights team have been shaking their heads in disbelief ever since hearing rumours of this fad. Sure, bare legs are fine for A-list celebrities with a chauffeur on standby and the money to spend on daily trips to the beauty salon.

To convince you all that wrapping up warm is the way to go, we’ve compiled a list of the most stylish thick and winter tights around!

  1. Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights – at their best teamed with denim shorts and a cable knit jumper, these stylish matte tights are available in a range of hot colours and have a 55% wool composition, for the toastiest pins around. So on-trend that Cara Delevigne was recently seen on the front cover of Harper’s Bazaar in a similar pair! Well, if I must…
  2. Oroblu Miracle Tights – cute plaid print meets winter warmer with these 80 denier fashion tights from Oroblu. Ideal for jumping on board to the heritage trend, opt for these if you’re looking for cosy and stand out hosiery to take you from day to play.
  3. Wolford Zip Tights adding new dimensions to the meaning of fashion statement, these Wolford tights are a revamp of the classic Wolford De Luxe 66, given a maximum impact makeover thanks to a stunning zip embellishment that runs from the ankle to mid thigh!

Olivia’s Opaques

Last week, the lovely Olivia Palermo attended the New York reopening of Club Monaco. Her outfit was absolutely flawless – rocking the shorts-and-tights trend with some black opaque tights. A shiny statement necklace and purse really makes this ensemble stand out.

great essays

Lucky for you, MyTights.com has a couple of pairs of tights that can help you pull off Olivia’s look, thanks to some new styles from the Italian brand Oroblu. The Oroblu Chantal 120 Tights will give you exactly her look. The matte finish will make it easy to pair with shiny accessories, like Palermo, or a flashy dress. With a warm 120 denier fabric, you’ll be wearing these all winter (thank goodness they come in two colours!).

However, as cold as it’s been in New York lately, it’s not quite winter yet here in the UK. The Oroblu Satin 60 Tights are perfect for now while it’s still autumn. These have a slight sheen to them, so you won’t need to add too many statement accessories in order to stand out.

Both of these tights are super versatile. A simple change of shoes and accessories can take them right from work to the party – and you’re sure to be comfy in them all day!

What MyTights Wore – 11th October

Here at MyTights HQ, we’ve come to accept that we probably won’t experience sunshine for a good few months. Undeterred by the miserable drizzle and downpour, we’ve made it our mission to showcase our favourite hosiery styles, all day, everyday. Just take a look for yourself…

Laura

Laura pays tribute to trend of the season in her tartan skirt, styling it with a pair of must-have fishnet tights (Laura has even worn skin coloured sheers underneath to lock in the warmth, shh!)

Laura

Geometric & gorgeous, Laura has teamed her Jillian Tights from Oroblu are a must for AW! A near optical illusion, the patterned tights look great when styled with a shift dress and sweet courts.

Laura

The quirkiest tights around this season by a mile, the Bricking It Tights by Pretty Polly & Patternity are an office favourite! Far easier to style than you may have thought intially, the graphic tights are just one of the capsule range by the collaboration. Take note from Laura and wear yours with block colours and a statement necklace.

Hannah

This season is still about all things spotty, so Hannah makes the most of this trend by letting her polka dot tights add charm to a sweet dress & jumper combo.
