Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

We love nothing more than when two of our favourite music stars join forces; it always makes for a brilliant pop song. Eminem and Rihanna, Nelly & Kelly, the list goes on. Now it’s the turn of none other than Madonna and Taylor Swift to set the airwaves alight and produce a new song that we’ll undoubtedly have in our heads for months to come. Performing their much anticipated single Ghost Town at the iHeartMusic Radio Awards, it seems that it’s not just musical talent that the pair have in common, with both the undisputed queen of pop and current golden girl Swift performing in matching stockings!

In her first public performance since THAT fall at the Brit Awards and opting to play it safe and sit on a stool (wise move!), Madonna layered her black stockings over a pair of trademark fishnets, finishing off her vampy look with knee high leather boots and a rather odd corseted outfit. Taylor’s outfit, on the other hand, was a slightly more classic affair, wearing her lovely lace top stockings with a sleeveless black dress and knee high lace up boots. Two very different looks with one thing in common, the performance confirmed exactly what we knew – stockings are back. Are you loving their legwear? If you are, MyTights.com have a fantastic array of stockings on offer, be it winter-warming opaques or racy fishnets, so there’s no reason why you can’t replicate it should you wish…

If it’s a classic pair of sheer stockings a la Taylor you’re after, a great place to start is with the Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings. Near on identical to Swifty, the lace top adds instant glamour to your wardrobe, while the slight sheen finish is great for perfecting a polished evening look. Whether you follow Taylor’s lead and opt for an LBD or play it casual in a pair of denim shorts and statement tee, these are a fabulous (not to mention affordable) choice. Looking for something that’s a little more everyday? No problem, simply turn your attention to the brilliant Charnos Elegance Ultra Sheer Stockings, a case of the name speaking for itself, with their classic plain top and understated sheen. Great for the office, they’ll only set you back £6.25 a pair.

While we’d suggest accessorising your stockings with something a little more demure than Madonna herself, there’s no denying that her layered fishnet tights added some wow factor to her look. To mirror this, how about treating yourself to the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Stockings? All the sultry appeal of stockings but with a classic fishnet base to get everyone talking, there’s no easier way to give your simple evening wear an edgy twist!

Fallen hook, line and sinker for sultry stockings? Make sure you cast your eyes over our full range!

Stocking up?

We love stockings!These days stockings are often overlooked in favour of the far more practical tights or hassle free hold ups, but if you’re one of the many who have switched from stockings or even never tried them, you could be missing a trick.  The ultimate way to inject some vintage glamour into your hosiery drawer, every woman should own a pair as part of her staple wardrobe.

Not only do they look amazing and make you feel sexy and sophisticated, wearing them with a suspender belt is a great option if you love the look of hold ups but are worried about them rolling or falling down.  And if stockings are inextricably linked in your mind with thick, ugly hosiery that looks far too obvious and is scratchy on your skin, think again – stockings have gone through exactly the same regeneration process as tights, so now you can get styles that are super comfy and look fabulous.

Sexy sheer stockings are perfect if you want a bare leg look for the office – try the Oroblu Secret 15 Stockings, which have a pretty lace top and come in a variety of shades so you can get one perfect for your skintone.  Or else opt for a shiny stocking like the perennially popular Pretty Polly Nylons Stockings which have a mega shiny finish that will give you the glossiest pins in town!

For a hot date your LBD is crying out for classic back seam stockings which have a gorgeous retro feel – plus seams are wonderfully flattering as they make your pins appear longer AND slimmer!  We love the Jonathan Aston Seam and Heel Lycra Stockings, which come in black or nude and have a purse friendly price, too.  Opaque stockings are the way forward when the weather turns colder and you need to start covering up a little more.  The Trasparenze Sandra 70D Stockings come in 4 classic shades and have a matte finish that goes with everything you own.  The 70 denier construction mean these will get you through frosty mornings with ease – plus they feel incredibly soft on your skin.

Of course if you love the look but really can’t bear to fumble around with a suspender belt, Charnos have made your life easy with the new addition to their boudoir collection – the All In One Suspender Stockings.  Featuring stockings already attached to a suspender belt that you simply need to clip on around your waist, you really haven’t got any excuses now!  Whether you go for sheer or opaque, fashion or plain, the humble stocking will add a dash of vintage charm to your look – so start stocking up now for a bit of wow factor for your wardrobe.
