Glasto Envy

You’d think I’d be over it by now.  I have after all endured a lifetime of not going to Glastonbury.

This is not for want of trying I can assure you.

There are signs that my chronic Glastonbury envy is getting easier to deal with each passing year however.  This time it has taken only a week for it to subside enough for me to do a quick round up of the fashion treats on offer at the UK’s most revered festival.

I’ve said before that tights are a festival essential.  Festival pro Kate Moss has been spotted sporting a pair of black fishnet tights.  Fishnet made a strong showing at Glastonbury this year.  Ke$ha performed in a pair of wide net fishnets which gave real attitude to her ripped, off the shoulder t-shirt.  For a similar look try the Jonathan Aston Burlesque Midinet Tights with their larger net design  – give them a rock and roll edge by putting some extra holes in them like Ke$ha.  If you are really daring you could even try this look with fishnet hold ups. Rather than pulling them up to the mid thigh as you normally would, choose a smaller size and wear them lower down the leg – more like over the knee socks.  With their plain tops and wide net the Jonathan Aston Midinet Hold Ups are perfect for this look.

Even Beyonce got in on the fishnet craze, performing her electrifying set on the Sunday night in a pair of nude coloured fishnets.   If you are thinking of emulating Beyonce not only do we wish you all the luck in the world – we’d also recommend you do so using Levante Fishnet Tights which come in a natural and mocca as well as the standard black.

It is no surprise that sock and welly combos we were popular with those that had to brave the mud with the rest of the crowds.  Pixie Geldof went for a little flash of colour under her trusty wellies like hundreds of hardy festival goers.  Knee high socks in bright colours like Trasparenze’s Cinzia Knee High Socks work well for this look as do over the knee socks like the Pamela Mann Ribbed over the Knee Socks.

For me though, outfit of the weekend goes to Alexa Chung.  Once the rain eased off a little, she slipped into an impossibly white sun dress teamed with cute black jodhpur boots and grey socks.  Now it is easy enough to lay my hands on a white cotton dress and those Jonathan Aston Slouch Socks in just the right shade of grey.  Would anyone care to donate a Chanel handbag to complete the look?

It’s Holland Time

It’s here, it’s sheer, and it’s very far from austere….. The return of the House of Holland for Pretty Polly hosiery collection.

agyness_hh_bandana

The bunting is up, the silly string is ready and there are party hats galore as that time has finally arrived… The House of Holland Autumn/Winter hosiery collection has arrived!!!

First shown at London Fashion Week earlier this year, on the catwalk and at the launch party we were delighted to attend, House of Holland’s A/W clothing range has already become a celebrity favorite. Said to have been created with ‘the New York girl going downtown’ in mind, the collection has a distinct 90’s feel – the stench of Nenah Cherry, The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air and Kurt Cobain oozes from the fabric. A theme which has definately rubbed-off onto their distinctive new hosiery line.

Eagerly awaited since the success of the last two collections for Pretty Polly, Henry Holland’s new hosiery range has not disappointed. Gorgeous bandana-style vintage paisley has inspired many of his designs such as the much desired Bandana Tight. Chic, and guaranteed to be spied on the legs of many of the fashion elite (they have already been spotted on Agyness Deyn and Sophie Ellis-Bextor), the Bandana Tight is set to be a key item in the coming season.

60871960This season is also predicted to see the rise of the knee-high sock, and the talented Mr Holland has unleashed some absolute stunners on the fashion world. Both the ‘Ball and Chain’ and the ‘Triple Chain’, were seen on the much idolised Ms Pixie Geldoff at Glastonbury this year. With their chunky-chain design in metallic, gold coloured thread, and with Henry’s trademark typographical elements, these are definitely hot socks.

Other stars of the collection include the fantastic Bandaknee Tights. We think they epitomise the ‘street culture’ look of the collection with their monochrome colours and lace knee patches – how many more trends could you want from one pair of tights!?

And last but not least…….. how could we sign off without mentioning this seasons twist on the iconic, coveted and all round adored ‘MOCK STOCKINGS’!……..

Yes, last season’s Super Suspender tights where a phenomenal hit with fans such as Agyness Deyn, Little Boots, Frankie Sandford and Princess Eugenie(!). This season they’re even sexier, our choice would be the Chain Suspender tights with super-glam metallic detailing to add some cheeky fun to any night out.

So girls, for a pocket friendly way to get some designer action into your life, look no further than this amazing autumn/winter collection. Every day should be a Henry Holland day!

Glastonbury’s Best Dressed

katemoss_glasto_fishnetsOnce described by the Guardian’s Hadley Freeman as ‘the world’s muddiest catwalk’, this year’s Glastonbury Festival was held on the hottest weekend of the year so far with not a raincloud to be seen. But that didn’t stop all our favourite celebs from showing off their fashion savvy in an array of different hosiery looks.

Harry Potter star Emma Watson made the headlines for pairing a Louis Vuitton corset top with her denim cut-off shorts, but it was her stylish yet sensible welly boots and over-the-knee socks combo that caught our eye. Prepared for the possibility of rain, but not risking ‘welly rash’ with bare legs in her rain boots, over-the-knee socks like Emma’s are a festival essential. We love Pamela Mann’s Over Knee Socks and Striped Over Knee Socks, in a range of colours to tone with any outfit – even a Louis Vuitton corset!

Festival lover Pixie Geldof also wore knee high socks throughout the weekend at Glastonbury, but as one of Henry Holland’s closest friends, Pixie has already got her hands on next season’s Henry Holland for Pretty Polly knee highs and paired two different styles with thigh-skimming shorts and skirts and flat ankle boots. While we sadly can’t get next season’s HH for PP early for you (but keep your eyes peeled later this year!), we have still got this season’s styles in stock, so bag yourself a pair of super-stylish tights now and wear them to the festivals that might not be so lucky with the weather.

Fishnets were the surprise hit of the weekend, though, with Kates Moss and Nash both hanging out backstage in shorts and fishnet tights. Ms Moss chose a holey black pair under her denim shorts while Kate Nash wore subtle flesh-coloured fishnets with her ultra-colourful shirt and shorts outfit. Fishnets are a great idea for summer festivals as they’ll add an element of rock’n’roll edge to any outfit without making you hot. Get the look with Levante’s Fishnet Tights in black or natural beige, or take a look at Pamela Mann’s Fishnet Tights in a whole rainbow of colours.

We also spotted hot model and music fan Daisy Lowe in this season’s hot hosiery trend, mock stockings. Daisy paired her cropped vest top and teeny-weeny denim shorts with a gorgeous black patterned pair, and you can get her look with the beautiful Trasparenze Ciprea tights, which feature a pretty lace mock stocking top and white polka dots on the leg. Or try Trasparenze’s Renella tights, which also have a beautiful stocking top pattern, plus mock suspender straps for seriously sexy festival style.

With plenty more festivals throughout the summer, take your inspiration from this year’s Glastonbury style stars and make super-cool tights and socks a part of your festival look.

GET THE LOOK: LACE TIGHTS

Lace tights have been on the fashion radar for a few seasons now, but the eagle-eyed hosiery hunters here at MyTights HQ have noticed a full-scale celebrity obsession developing. From uptown girl Olivia Palermo to rock royalty Pixie Geldof, everyone’s in on it, so if you haven’t investigated lace legwear yet, here’s how to work it into your look.

Our latest drop of Henry Holland tights for Pretty Polly includes this incredible Lace Bodysuit, but you don’t have to have a Lady Gaga moment to make it work for you – it makes a brilliant on-trend base layer under shorts, skirts and dresses. Although if you are taking cues from Lady Gaga, be sure to invest in some Spanx to preserve your modesty and give you a sleek silhouette! If you’re not sure the bodysuit is for you, we’ve also got Henry Holland’s Lace Panel tights. Henry’s added serious edge to classic black lace hosiery with solid black panels down the front of the legs – think Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen, the actress and budding rock star who plays rebel Jenny Humphrey, and grunge them up with lace-up boots and a thigh-grazing mini.

At the other end of the Gossip Girl style spectrum ultra-polished Park Avenue princess Blair Waldorf, played by the gorgeous Leighton Meester, has been seen sporting a more demure take on the lace tights trend. Paired with a tailored coat and classic Mary-Jane heels, she takes the look from racy and rebellious to graceful and girly, and with these Pretty Polly Lace Tights, you can channel her Upper East Side style without breaking the bank. As Blair demonstrates, lace tights are a classic way to bring a touch of feminine charm to an otherwise prim ensemble, evoking the unmistakably French allure of iconic couture house Chanel – with a chic black pencil skirt and white blouse, lace tights will take you from desk to dinner date with elegance and ease.

Luckily, now that the weather is warming up, lace doesn’t have to be restricted to tights! Jonathan Aston’s Sweet Roses Anklets are just the thing for taking on another of spring’s big trends – socks with sandals. Unashamedly girly, these are perfect for daintily balancing out the chunky heels we’ve seen all over the catwalks. We think Alexa Chung, who was recently papped at Paris Fashion Week flashing her lace-top hold ups under her chunky coat, would wear these with her new favourite high-heeled clogs and denim shorts for a quirky off-duty look on sunny summer days.

So there you have it – whether you’re after rock chic, classic elegance or kooky cool, lace hosiery is the must-have item that you definitely need in your wardrobe!

I WANT TO LIVE IN THE HOUSE THAT HOLLAND BUILT

Henry Holland House TightsHere at MyTights, we’re all feeling a little disappointed by the lack of sunny weather that spring is supposed to bring, which is why we’ve turned our attention to something that will guarantee to put the spring back in your step! His name is Henry Holland and he is one of the best things that have happened to Fashion this year!

With a renowned reputation for being edgy and quirky with his designs, it was a shock to learn of the British designer’s recent collaboration with the laid-back classic American cool of Levis Strauss jeans. But the partnership has proved a refreshing one; the range consists of eight unique denim styles, as well as black and flesh coloured striped T-shirts. Henry’s influence on the collection is palpable, as most pieces are accented with golden buckles and contrasting black denim straps with an exclusive purple House of Holland patch to complete all designs. If this wasn’t cool enough, Indie poster girl and NY club scene alum Leigh Lezark will be the face of the latest ad campaign.

Not only is the designer liaising with the top dogs over seas, but he has also launched his new collection H! By Henry Holland at Debenhams. Gal pal and muse to the designer Pixie Geldof is the face of the new collection and she’s featured in all of the campaigns.

If you’re fashion savvy and want a piece of the action, I suggest you turn to MyTights where in only a matter of days the pioneering designs of Henry Holland’s Spring/Summer collection will be available! Tights which carry Henry’s famous prints will be bursting onto MyTights’ screens, so be sure to have your mouse at the ready before they sell out like the last collection!

And as if the new collection wasn’t enough, the sell-out Super Suspender Tights will be back too! An endless list of celebs, such as Frankie from the Saturdays, Agyness Deyn, Pixie Geldof, Alexa Chung and Miquita Oliva have all been pictured wearing Henry Holland’s super suspender tights, an item that has become as much iconic of the designer as bumsters were of the late Alexander Mcqueen!
