It has just come to our attention that Pixie paid a visit to her old school, the Italia Conti Academy of Performing Arts, wearing an amazing pair of tights. How we missed such an amazing look we have no idea… but the good news is you can get the exact same look with the super cool Jonathan Aston Wild Tights.
You can dress these tights (which are an absolute bargain at just £12, by the way) up with heels a
nd a mini dress but we just LOVE the way Pixie has styled hers with flat lace ups and a matching leopard print shirt for a casual daytime look. Teal is leopard print’s best friend -we don’t know why, they just look amazing together- so by adding a splash of colour she really brightens up what could otherwise be an outfit verging on boring.
To match Pixie, get the tights in Black (sheer black with an opaque black leopard print), but if you really want the design to stand out go for contrasting nude with black pattern.
If these aren’t quite what you were after, take a look at the entire collection of animal print tights to find your perfect partner!

Some clever celebs have been wearing fantastic hosiery recently! So we’ve trawled through all the celeb hosiery lovers, decided who is wearing them best and then come up with some alternatives for you to replicate their style! So read on to find out what is hot…
First off is serial hosiery wearer: Fearne Cotton. Fearne loves a bit of animal print and she rocked a leopard print dress with a pair of black stripy patterned tights and flat ankle boots. In another outfit that showed her kooky style she wore bright red opaque tights that packed a punch against her simple black outfit and red ruby lips. Jonathan Aston and Pamela Mann have similar pairs.
Rihanna was photographed whilst filming her music video in a multi-print ensemble that hits ‘The Dressing-Up Box’ trend perfectly. She wore fishnet shorts underneath colourful hotpants and these Jonathan Aston fishnet shorts will help you recreate the look. Rihanna also rocked a pair of Henry Holland Bandana Tights on her latest tour!
Pixie Lott who famously wore the Henry Holland Chain Suspenders at V-festival also loves her over-the-knee socks, and has been spotted wearing them with a number of outfits! In a 1960s style short, long sleeved navy shift dress, she relied on her socks to keep her warm (pictured). Trasparenze have lots of colours to choose from.
Serena, Serena, Serena!! If you are obsessed with Gossip Girl you will know where that line comes from. Both “Serena” and actress Blake Lively have received accolades for their amazing and enviable wardrobe. Pictures taken from the set show Blake wearing tights and she is rocking these black ribbed tights. Try Falke Soft Merino wool ribbed tights to recreate the look.
Another actress who has earnt her fashion stripes with her fashionable boho chic and designer credentials is Sienna Miller. Sienna wore a 1970s Chloé inspired outfit that showed she loves the camel and fur trend! Sienna chose elegant black opaque tights, finishing her outfit beautifully. Try Pretty Polly’s 100 Denier nylon tights or Pamela Mann 80 denier tights.
Lastly, Kelly Osbourne, who was pictured wearing Henry Holland’s Bandana OTK Tights at Glastonbury, chose a more elegant look when performing with The Pussy Cat Dolls. She wore an ultra sexy outfit paired with fishnet spotted tights - Gerbe’s Plumetis Polka Dot Tights (that were featured in Vogue!) are a great alternative.
The fashion at this years V-festival certainly didn’t disappoint, some of our favourite fashionista’s included Doctor Who star Karen Gillan, who looked stunning in a pair of diamond printed tights and monochrome outfit. Gossip Girl star and The Pretty Reckless front-woman Taylor Momsen rocked her signature look of sexy stockings and suspenders, teaming them with a studded corset (perhaps taking the underwear as outerwear look a bit too far?!). Alexandra Burke showed us how to work lace shorts, by wearing them peeking out from under a jumper dress. But the star of the show? Henry Holland’s Chain Suspender Tights of course!
19 year old starlet Pixie Lott stunned the crowds in a black and gold mini dress, rock-chic boots and the stunning black and gold Chain Suspender Tights from Henry Holland’s latest collection. She looked so gorgeous in her black and gold outfit, she was even on the front page of the Metro newspaper this morning! It looks like mock stockings really are here to stay, and this season’s golden twist on the Super Suspenders makes these tights even more striking, whilst still very wearable – perfect to dress up with heels and a mini for parties, and dress down with a t-shirt and ankle boots for a grunge/rock look.
With a host of celebs already flying the flag for the leotard, it’s no surprise that the high street is following suit and that you can get anything as long as it’s all-in-one this summer.
However, while Daisy Lowe and Pixie Lott may look fabulous in theirs, many girls get it wrong and end up looking more brassy ’80s barmaid than Lady GaGa.
Eleanor Glover from the Daily Mail’s fashion section reckons that the leotard can look really show-stopping on a night out – as long as you’ve got the pins for it and you pair yours with the correct hosiery!
“Just team [leotards] with a pair of black tights and high heels, not forgetting plenty of attitude, and you’re good to go,” she urges.
And in case you had thought about ignoring her advice, she has provided a helpful picture of how not to dress on the website courtesy of Jordan.
The model recently sported a sequined leotard that was cut eye-wateringly high with bare legs, leaving the world in no doubt as to the status of her bikini line.
If you don’t want to look like that, make sure you head to MyTights.com and get hold of some dark or black opaque tights such as those from Pretty Polly before you don your all-in-one.
