Artwork Tights

Any kind of legwear that is not all one colour can be difficult to style.  However, artwork tights definitely take the cake.  These are fun but daring, and you have to own them to make them work.  I’ve always been one to stick well within my fashion comfort zone but this trend is too fun to pass up. Here are a few prints we have been loving to style.

First up, we have the Pamela Mann Comic Strip Tights.  The bright comic book strip print is perfect for Halloween. I’m kidding, kind of.  These tights are laid back and can be paired a simple black skirt to ensure that the focus will be on your  legs.  They are perfect for casual Friday at work or an afternoon strolling around the city.

If your style is out of this world, you might want to try the Pamela Mann Galactic Sky Printed Tights.  Galaxy prints have been very in this past year and they are easy to wear with a long black tunic and plain Vans or Converse.  To dress up the look, wedge lace up booties will add just enough glam without looking out of place.

Rock and Roll is always in style, and we have got the perfect pair to for to show off your love for it.  Pamela Mann’s Skull & Roses Tights are the perfect combination of girly flair and tough rocker chick.  Pair them with black leather shorts for a fun night out and keep the party rocking.

Patterned Tights Styles We’re Loving

Patterned tights have been making a comeback recently, at Coachella, on the red carpet, and even in the yoga studio, and we’ve narrowed down our top five styles you can incorporate into your daily wardrobe.

1. Baroque

Baroque tights add a girly touch to your plain sheer black tights.  The velvet design on ones like the Jonathan Aston Carmen Tights and the opulent design on the Pamela Mann Baroque Tulle Tights add dimension and body to your outfit.  Pair them with a simple black dress or go bold and wear it with a dark turquoise skirt with black booties.  Keep the rest of the outfit and accessories simple to keep the focus on your legs (oh la la!).

2. Printed Suspender Tightspamela-mann-paris-suspender-tights

Suspender tights are harder to pull off but with the right outfit, you can achieve a subtly sexy look.  We love the Pamela Mann Big Heart Sheer Suspender Tights’ flirty heart design at the top.  These add enough of a pattern to your outfit without overwhelming it.  The sheerness will keep you from looking like a primary-school girl while the opaqueness will prevent you from looking too raunchy.  These can be paired with high-waisted shorts and a simple blouse to keep the focus on the pattern.

3. Skyline

Whether you’re traveling the globe or commuting to work, skyline printed tights add just enough va va voom to your outfit to change up your daily look while maintaining professionalism.  We love Pamela Mann’s New York Skyline Tights and Paris Skyline Tights.  The sheer thigh section is perfect to have peek out from under a dark purple skirt and add an edgy look to your everyday wardrobe.

4. Tattoo

Ever wondered what you would look like with leg tattoos? Well now you can see for yourself with tattoo tights.  Those like the Jonathan Aston Gaya Tights  have a full sheer leg with a black tiger design near the ankle and are perfect for a night out.  For a more all-over tattooed look, try our Pamela Mann Floral Tattoo Tights.  These will make your legs look fierce and delicate at the same time with their intricate dragon and flower designs.

5. Animal Print

Take a walk on the wild side with animal printed leggings.  We love the Trasparenze Spirit Leggings.  These are thick enough to be worn as bottoms with a high-low, simple, black loose t-shirt and comfortable enough to wear on a shopping day or whilst running errands.

Whether you’re drawn to flirty floral patterns or wild animal prints, we hope we’ve helped you spice up your legwear.  Comment below with the style you’re dying to try!

Street Style – May ’14

We’ve all been there, thinking: “wow I love those patterned tights! But what could I wear them with?” It’s a common conundrum, being surrounded by so much choice, so it always helps to have the assistance of certain style gurus on hand. These two looks will give you plenty of inspiration for your hosiery wardrobe.

gisela-edited-1

The first of our lovely fashionistas is Gisela, while visiting New York, she took a stroll in her Pretty Polly & Patternity Bricking It Tights in 80/20 denier – what better way is there to stand out in this fashion forward city? To copy this look team these tights with denim shorts, a sleeveless NYC top, a scarlet satchel and ankle boots.

gisela-edited-2

 

If you’re a huge fan of the Big Apple then why not also check out the New York Skyline Tights from Pamela Mann in 50/20 denier. These fashion tights put a fun twist on that mock suspender style by including motifs of famous New York landmarks on the tops.

 

jane-comp-winner-edited

Now take a look at the fabulous competition winner Jane Postlethwaite in her animal print tights and matching burgundy ensemble complete with gold shoes. Burgundy, gold and tan all compliment each other beautifully while the animal print tights go seamlessly with her patterned scarf for a matchy-matchy style. For a similar look, combine the Jonathan Aston Wild Tights in 20 denier along with a patterned oxblood red and metallic skirt, plain shirt and burgundy scarf. Alternatively go for the Trasparenze Adventure Tights in 100 denier with their chic panel design featuring half black opaques and half animal print for a flattering take on this fierce style.

We hope that you have found inspiration for new ensembles to go along with your patterned tights!

Top 3 Lady Gaga Hosiery Looks

Lady Gaga Patterned TightsWhether she’s wearing a meat dress or styling her hair as a button (yes really), Lady Gaga is certainly renowned for her eclectic taste. But did you know that she’s an avid hosiery wearer, constantly snapped in a selection of terrific tights? We’ve included here a list of her top 3 hosiery looks. Now whether you choose to match them with a dress made of bubbles à la Gaga is up to you!

1. Fishnets

Seen recently on the David Letterman with a leather jacket, black knickers, a black diamanté bra and brown fishnet tights, Lady Gaga emulated Madonna by wearing her underwear over her fishnet tights. Another time, inspired by that glamorous 20’s style, the Do What U Want singer teamed a girly lace blouse decorated with pearls, cream frilly pearl-adorned shorts along with nude fishnet tights. Lady Gaga was also snapped in a pair of black fishnets teamed with a spiky leather jacket and, well, black knickers, proving that this diva has a serious addiction to fishnets! Both times the Alejandro hitmaker showed off the sheer brief style of fishnets, showing off the fact that no matter how high your hemlines go, fishnets will never let you down by showing off reinforced material. To emulate Lady G’s sexy style we recommend the Levante Fishnet Tights, available in black, brown and nude styles.

2. Suspenders

Wearing a matching latex hat, bodysuit, and over knee boots, with a lace fan (why not?) and suspenders (yes, just suspenders and no stockings!) for a modern take on a classic look. For this saucy look in an instant why not match the Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights with a pair of knee high boots and some black city shorts (perhaps cotton is tad more practical than latex)! These 40/20 denier suspender tights have actually been spotted on Jessie J and Frankie from the Saturdays, too.

3. Patterned Tights

With marine blue hair, leopard-print platforms, a black lacy bra and a black and indigo blue jacket, Lady Gaga was on top form again when she was photographed in a pair of detailed fashion tights. For fun patterned tights that will make an impact like the Poker Face starlet’s pair choose the Pamela Mann Comic Strip Tights. Made in 60 denier, these fashion tights are brimming with fun imagery in bright colours, funky enough to impress Mother Monster herself and at a price that won’t break the bank – what’s not to love?

KrysTrasparenzeAdventure03

Krys is looking lovely in leopard print with the Trasparenze Adventure Tights, we love how she matches her opaque patterned tights with her animal print scarf!

Laura’s Choice: London Fashion Week AW14 Round Up

I just adore London Fashion week. The anticipation of seeing the new collections from my favourite designers, the buzz of the beautifully dressed milling around Somerset house, and the general air of glitz and glamour that lights up London for a few days.  Of course I always look first to the models’ never ending legs, and thankfully the AW14 shows didn’t disappoint- there was an abundance of hosiery on display…

The Trend: Patterned Tights

Seen at: Vivienne Westwood, Meadham Kirchhoff, Daks

Vogue warned us it was coming, Carole Middleton leapt to the fore of the fash pack in hers, and now the catwalks have verified it: patterned tights are a bona fide trend for AW14.  And it seems that whatever your style, you can find a pair to suit – Vivienne Westwood teamed her bold triangular tribal patterned tights with 80s power suits and lashings of leather, while Meadham Kirchhoff went for a subtler fairisle style pattern, teamed with blazers and side parted hair for a schoolgirl-esque look, and Daks upped the ante on their heritage style with stand out tartan tights.

Get the Look: Pamela Mann Triangle Suspender Tights, Wolford Lynne Tights, Pamela Mann Fairisle Tights

Vivienne Westwood show, Autumn Winter 2014, London Fashion Week, Britain - 16 Feb 2014

The Trend: Black Opaque Tights

Seen at: Giles, Vita Gottlieb

Perhaps surprisingly due to the prominence of black sheers we’ve seen this season, opaques seemed to be the name of the game at LFW (aside from Alice Temperley, who layered black sheer tights under everything.  Kardashian clan member Kendall Jenner strutted down the Giles catwalk in a pair, with the whole Giles catwalk packed full of thick black tights teamed with ultra practical brogues and woollen beanies in a chic monochrome palette.  Vita Gottlieb went for a more striking look, with structured silhouettes taking pride of place on the runway, finished with heels and opaquer-than-opaque jet black tights.

Get the Look: Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights, Trasparenze Cortina 100D Tights

The Trend: Neutral Socks

Seen at:  Rokasanda Illincic, Topshop, Bora Aksu, Christopher Raeburn, Antipodium

Socks were everywhere for yet another season at LFW – for me, Antipodium were one of the winners, teaming grey ankle socks with t-bar shoes and a Romanesque palette of burnt orange, bronze and steely grey.  Away from the Roman holiday, I also loved the look at Bora Aksu, where grey/black ankle socks were teamed with feminine silhouettes in vibrant hues.

There were plenty of variations on the theme – Christopher Raeburn went for anthracite knee high socks to complement his military theme, while Topshop opted for thick knee high pushed down to the ankle, legwarmer style, in muted beige tones with midi dresses and fur coats.  By and large it looks as though the trend for bright and pastel ankle socks won’t continue past spring into the autumn, though Alice Temperley again swam against the current and incorporated a colour pop blue pair into her show.

Get the Look: Trasparenze Monique Socks, Falke Family Short Socks

Daks show, Autumn Winter 2014, London Fashion Week, Britain - 14 Feb 2014
The Trend: Coloured Tights

Seen at: Michael Van Der Ham, Orla Kiely, Daks

Speaking of colour, there was no lack of it at Fashion Week, with Michael Van Der Helm putting all others to shame with his array of 60s style looks, all finished with bright coloured tights in orange, while and yellow and plenty of organza detailing.  I also loved Daks’ burgundy tights set in an autumnal palette with plenty of heritage overtones (though the bearskins are just a step too far for me).

Orla Kiely’s show was a tongue in cheek reference to the notoriously dreadful weather in her native Ireland – models carried umbrellas and teamed raincoats with coloured tights in white, white and brown. It’s easy to see why Kate Middleton’s such a fan of the designer’s work!

Get the Look: Pamela Mann 50D Coloured Tights, Falke Pure Matt 100D Tights

Michael van der Ham show, Autumn Winter 2014, London Fashion Week, Britain - 17 Feb 2014
The Trend: Hold Ups

Seen at: Tom Ford, Temperley

Statement fishnet stockings were seen at the Tom Ford show – covered at the front with skin tight pencil skirts which were slashed up the back to reveal the tops.
I also spotted hold ups layered under sheer floor length gowns at Alice Temperley, who had taken her collection in a whole new bohemian direction.

Get the look: Levante Fishnet Hold Ups, Falke Peacock Lunelle Hold Ups

We’ll be selecting our A/W fashion collections soon, so I’ll be using all my LFW inspiration to help me narrow down the vast selection.  And of course I can’t wait to see how the highstreet interprets these trends – and incorporate them into my own wardrobe!

Until next week…

Carole Middleton: Game Changer, Opinion Divider, Fashionista

carole-middleton-patterned-tights-zoomA few days ago, Royal in-law Carole Middleton was snapped in demure patterned tights, and instantly made waves in the fashion world, sparking fierce debate with fashion critics everywhere to criticise her style for being “too young”.

how to save money on electric bill

MyTights sprang to her defence in our blog – and lo and behold, a few days later everyone is changing their tune and decided that her look is actually rather fabulous – which must mean that MyTights is now the go to experts on all things fashion (probably).

Not only have the Daily Mail published a guide to patterned tights, everywhere we turn there’s someone quoting Vogue as saying that “fashion tights are back”.  Woman and Home Style Director, Angela Kennedy, agrees with us too: “No age is the wrong age to wear black patterned tights – it’s all about having the right legs and the confidence to carry them off.”  Hear hear!

The perfect transitional piece to take you from winter coat to sundress in style, a classic pair of patterned tights will go with everything in your wardrobe, as well as giving you a little coverage when it’s still too cold to contemplate bare legs.  Here’s our round up of the Daily Mail’s guide on how to rock patterned tights, whatever your style… so now you’ve got no excuse!

Catwalk Queens

Those who like to nod towards high fashion in their sartorial choices should look toward the Mad Men era this season in subtle, sexy seamed tights Feeling brave?  Animal print tights are sure to make a statement and never seem to go out of fashion.

Embellished Princesses

Keep the rest of your look simple and understated – a simple LBD with minimal jewellery is perfect – and go statement with a gorgeous pair of embellished tights.  Think sequins, sparkle and everything in between.

Workaholic Fashionistas

Patterned tights to the office isn’t as much of a no-go as you might think – the trick is to keep it simple.  Try a very fine pattern in a surprising shade, or go for a classic, like polka dot tights.

Curvy Goddesses

No bright colours and no fishnet designs, says the DM, which can often be unflattering on larger legs.  Instead opt for ribbed tights styles which streamline your shape and make your legs appear endless.

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?
