Bare Leg Look Tights – Which Style is Best for You?

40027-Shelina-12Forget diamonds, bare leg look tights are a girl’s real best friend. Like make-up for your legs, bare leg look hosiery will blend blemishes, vanquish veins and perk up pale, pasty pins.  And with an army of celebrity fans, headed up by Kate Middleton, Duchess of Cambridge and Queen of Sheer Tights, it’s no wonder that sales of sheer tights have rocketed over the last year.

To help you through the maze of options, I have written a guide to getting the coveted bare leg look, so you can discover the right pair for you in a matter of minutes…

Best for: the ultimate bare leg look

My absolute favourite bare leg look products are made from bi-component (usually Sideria) yarns, which simply give an absolutely unbeatable look on the leg.  With a 7 denier appearance and 15 denier strength, the Charnos Simply Bare 7D Sideria Tights are a fabulous everyday option thanks to their budget busting price.  If you’re type of girl that loves a bargain, I’d also suggest taking a look at the Pretty Polly Naturals collection – a range of 7 styles in 5-8 denier, with a cooling finish that means legs feel as great as they look.  Too scared to debut your pasty pins?  Then I recommend the Oroblu Suntime Tights, as these ultra sheers come in a range of skintone shades designed to give your skin a subtle glow.  And last but definitely not least, the Falke Shelina Tights are my absolute must have – I wear them all summer long and no one can ever believe I’m wearing tights.  Not only do they give the best finish on your legs, the colours were relaunched last year with the help of actual dermatologists, so they now come in an array of shades that look even more natural on the leg.

Aristoc-UltimateBest for: Large choice of colours

The Falke Shelina products are by no means the only styles to come in a vast range of shades.  We pride ourselves on stocking bare leg look products for every skin tone including Afro-Caribbean, Mediterranean and the palest English Rose. To choose your perfect shade, it’s worth checking out our skin tone guide which shows bare leg styles on a range of skintones, so you can get the perfect match for you.

The Trasparenze Capri tights are a good place to start, as they come in 8 shades including a range of skintone matches.  Plus, in four sizes up to a size Maxi, they’ll fit up to a height of 7”1 and a weight of over 14 stone.  Also available in a plus size option are the utterly gorgeous Oroblu Geo 8 Tights, which feel silky smooth to the touch and glide onto the leg like a dream.   Available in a multitude of natural shades, the slight sheen finish gives a glowing, “just-moisturised” look to your skin – a little touch of luxury for your everyday routine.

Best for: everyday wear

If, like me, you seem to always be on the go, choosing a ladder resist product can be the perfect way to stop you spending unnecessary hard earned cash on emergency replacement tights.  Boasting a rather clever run resistant Lycra Fusion yarn, the Aristoc Ultimate 10D Matt Tights spell an end to ladders as any pesky snags that do appear just will not run – hooray for Aristoc! And back by popular demand, the Levante Resistenza Tights are a perennial favourite with our customers, thanks to their lighter than light feel on the leg, which belies their super strong run resist properties.

Best for: Occasions

Whether you have a special occasion coming up or are just the kind of woman that likes a little luxury in her life, then top of the range styles from Wolford are your perfect partner. I do love to pamper myself on special occasions by investing in something a little extra special, and the Wolford range is second to none when it comes to superior craftsmanship and timeless style. Treat yourself to a pair of the Wolford Individual 5 Tights, and the instant immaculate, powdery matte finish on your legs will garner admiring glances wherever you go.  I know though that 5 denier is sometimes not the most practical option for ladies on the go, which is why I would also stock up on the individual-5-tightsWolford Luxe 9 Tights, which are slightly thicker with a slight sheen finish for a subtly glowing skin.

Best for: showing off that pedicure

Toeless tights are the ideal solution for those of you that want flawless looking skin, but also want to show off that pedicure in peep toes or strappy sandals.  Featuring two to loops to keep them firmly in place, the Trasparenze Tropea Toeless Tights give a lovely natural look on the leg and are one of the oldest toeless options.  Other open toe options ideal for teaming with your summer footwear come from three of our favourite ranges: the Pretty Polly Naturals 8D Open Toe Tights, Falke Shelina Toeless Tights or the Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights.

With so many options available, it’s no wonder that shopping for sheers can sometimes be confusing.  If you need any further help in choosing the perfect pair for you then you can contact our customer services team who will be able to expertly guide you through the process.

Until next week…

Laura’s Choice – Black Sheer Tights

Calvin Klein 30d High Waisted Shaper TightsWearing thin tights in the winter might seem like ‘sheer’ lunacy, but during the previous season the sales of sheer tights (and luxury sheers in particular) rocketed, spurred on no doubt by the current trend for black sheer tights.  Seen on everyone who’s anyone, from Miranda Kerr to Alexa Chung, I’ve decided it was high time I bring you my pick of the best sheer black tights MyTights.com has to offer…

 

Ultra Sheer (5-9 denier)

Ultra sheer tights are the thinnest tights that are available, giving you just a touch of coverage and making them ideal for warmer weather. With a slight sheen finish, the Trasparenze Capri Tights will provide your lovely legs with a flawless complexion whilst allowing them to stay cool and fresh thanks to their low denier. These are also a great option for those on a budget, thanks to the purse friendly price – but if you’re after a more luxurious option, the Wolford Individual 5 Tights are perfect for getting a hosiery drawer to rival Ms. Middleton’s.  Renowned for their quality, including double-covered elastane in every row for increased durability as well as a perfect fit, these are quite simply incredibly strong for a 5 denier tight – bravo Wolford!

 

Sheer (10-20 denier)

If you are looking for classic black sheer tights then 10-20 denier tights are perfect for you. The Pretty Polly Nylons Tights is a beloved product and strong seller coming from the brand with a 95 year history.  Made in 10 denier, these sheer tights are marvellous for showing off those legs at special events thanks to their gorgeous shiny finish and variety of different shades. A long time favourite of our customers, it doesn’t get more classic than the 10 denier Falke Fond de Poudre Tights.  One of the original products from the luxury brand, these sensational sheers combine unexpected durability with an exceptionally flawless “powdered” finish that will make your legs look – and feel – simply divine.

 

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

Semi-Opaque (30 denier)

Semi-opaque 30 denier tights are fantastic for those tricky mid-season temperatures, when legs require a bit of coverage but not too much, since this midweight denier givs you a glimpse of leg while banishing blemishes. One of my favourites are the utterly wonderful Oroblu Sensuel 30 Tights, which have a slight sheen finish and glide onto your leg effortlessly. If smoothing your silhouette is what you desire, then the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights are superb since along with a 30 denier and matte finish, these semi-opaque tights also provide light control with an extended waist for even more shaping magic (and a feminine V Line brief). Last but certainly not least, the Levante Relax Medium Support Tights provide the clever combination of light control and medium support in a 30 denier.

 

Very Shiny vs. Matte Finish

I must say that I find glossy tights extremely glamorous and perfect for ensuring that you stand out from the crowd, and the ever popular Aristoc Ultra Shine Tights in 10 denier are perfect for nights out thanks to their sheer toe and shiny finish for high gloss glamour in an instant. If you’re looking for a thicker denier, perhaps for an all day wedding, I would certainly suggest the Levante Brillante Tights with their 20 denier appearance and comfort waistband you can dance the evening away in style and in comfort.   However a matte finish remains a favourite for some and I must admit that when at work I do prefer matte tights like the Falke Pure Matt 20 Tights in a sheer 20 denier, featuring an extremely soft feel as well as superior coverage. These luxurious sheer tights show yet again that Falke are experts at giving those legs a gorgeous look and feel.

 

Charnos Run Resist Sheer TightsFuller Figures

If you’re looking for sheers to accommodate your curves, then look no further, as MyTights stock a great range of plus size styles, too.  The aforementioned gorgeous Pretty Polly Nylons tights have a fuller figure version, the Pretty Polly Curves Nylons Tights, which fit up to a 60 inch waist providing you with superior levels of comfort and an enhanced fit.

 

Soon-to-be yummy mummies have not been forgotten, either –  the Trasparenze 20 Denier Maternity Tights have been designed especially for you, with their wide gentle waistband and stretchy material that expands to accommodate your growing bump. For a little more support from your pregnancy tights, then the Mama Spanx Maternity Tights in 20 denier boast a special support panel designed to go under the belly.

 

Ladder Resistant

As you can well imagine, if there is one thing that I just cannot stand it is ladders, so thankfully Charnos have come to the rescue with the 10 denier Charnos Run Resist Sheer Tights. Their innovative yarn technology means that their stitches are bonded together, so that they’re protected from turning into bigger holes and runs. Hot on their heels, and boasting Lycra Fusion technology that keeps them safe from laddering, the Aristoc Ultimate 10D Matt Tights have a classic matte finish and are woven in a 10 denier, while their sheer toe sets these apart as being suitable for wearing with sandals or peep toes – so they’re brilliant for taking on holiday! Ultra fine in a 5 denier, the Levante Resistenza Tights’ special yarn is resistant to runs and these super sheers are available in a multitude of sizes especially for leggy ladies.

 

If you’re not quite sure what you’re after, take a look at our entire range of fabulous black sheer tights. Also do make sure to look at our What My Tights Wore blogs for more ideas of how to style those sheers!

 

Until next time…

Mother-Daughter Looks

Like mother, like daughter. When it comes to fashion, most girls can’t help but have their wardrobe inspired by their mothers! This is especially true amongst famous families—and who can blame them? The Obamas, Middletons, Beckhams and even the Ciccones (Madonna) have daughters that follow similar trends in their hosiery and you can even mimic their looks with your own mum!mother-daughter-look-obamas-polaroid

The Obama girls are often overshadowed by the man of the (white) house, but that doesn’t stop them from looking fabulous. Michelle always keeps it chic and classy with a beautiful ensemble usually paired with plain opaques, but she recently started following the spring and summer trend with glossy sheers. They make her legs look moisturized and fit, without overpowering her look. Her daughters have a similar chic style with plain opaques, but show their youth with the popular colour blocking technique. The girls also matched each other in complimentary colors, how cute! You can get the Obama family’s looks with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights for mum and the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights for the daughters!mother-daughter-look-middletons-polaroid

Kate Middleton and her mother Carole also have corresponding classy styles; however they have recently started to differ in their hosiery. Kate is maintaining her royal appearance with her famous bare or almost-bare look while her mother has been adding a twist to her wardrobe with her elegant patterned tights. They both look stunning, and you can too with the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights for Kate’s classic look and the Charnos Diamond Net Tights for Carole’s chic legs.mother-daughter-beckham-polaroid

Victoria Beckham’s fashion choices are always making headlines and little Harper is well on her way to follow in mummy’s footsteps. Both babes were spotted in wool tights—mummy in black and Harper in white. The contrasting duo will continue to make fabulous hosiery choices, and you can match the Beckhams and your baby girl with the Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights and the Country Kids Warmer Tights.

mother-daughter-look-madonna-polaroidMadonna and daughter Lourdes have been turning heads for their edgy hosiery selections. Madonna has been getting attention for her eccentric fashion choices for some time and still uses her fishnets for a 80s throwback vibe. Lourdes is a rookie compared to her mum when it comes to making headlines in fashion, but she does so with ease by clashing a tartan skirt and stripy tights. Getting these looks has never been easier with the Charnos Fishnet Tights for a Madonna inspired legs and the Pamela Mann Stripe Over Knee Suspender Tights for Lourdes’ edgy ensemble.

 

 

It’s never been easier to be as stylish as these mother-daughter icons and it can all be found at MyTights.com!

Laura’s Choice: SS14 Trends

I love watching new looks emerge on the catwalk, but what’s even better is seeing how they translate on the high street – and of course how they’re reflected in the world of hosiery!  With the official arrival of spring last week, I’ve decided it was high time I shared with you some of my favourite trends for SS14, along with some inspiration on how to wear them… tienga-patterned-tights

Trend: Geometric Patterns

Seen at: House of Holland, Peter Pilotto

If you want to get away with patterns at the office, go for a small, all over design, like the Pretty Polly Layered Honeycomb Tights.  Team these with a pencil skirt and knee high boots and you’ll reveal just a flash of pattern as you walk – the ultimate grown up way to work the trend.  For the younger and bolder, a short A-Line skirt and plain cropped jumper will show off bold designs like the bondage style Pamela Mann Gridlock Sheer Tights, or create a fashion forward clash effect by donning the tribal-inspired Jonathan Aston Tienga Tights with a skater dress in a contrasting pattern.

Trend: Embellishments

Seen at: Mui Mui, Prada, Marc Jacobs

wolford-mimi-tights

Embellishments are back again, following on from last year’s Great Gatsby craze when everyone went mad for a little bling.  The best bit is embellished tights are so easy to wear, whether you choose to dress them up or down.  Try teaming something subtle like the Pamela Mann 120D Studded Tights with your regular office skirt and classic blouse, or for all out glamour go for something extra glitzy like the Trasparenze Party Tights, which are adorned with a trail of sparkly butterflies up the leg.  Mirror the sparkle with a statement necklace and voila!  A party ready look in an instant.

Trend: Florals

Seen at: House of Holland, Jonathan Saunders, Erdem

Florals are a spring staple, so you can stick with tradition and wear the Wolford Mimi Tights with summery pastel shades – the sweet floral side seam will instantly put spring in your step.  Or for an edgier way to wear them, oriental inspired styles like the Pamela Mann Flocked Rose Tights and the Jonathan Aston Rosy Tights will work really well with casual attire and a lashing of leather.

Trend: Lace

pamela-mann-baroque-tulle-tights

Seen at: Stella McCartney, Burberry Prorsum, Chanel, Marc Jacobs

Lace for spring is a revelation for me – I’d always thought of it as very much a winter staple, but who am I to argue with Chanel?  For a really up to the moment look team the Pamela Mann Baroque Tulle Tights with a jersey midi skirt, slouchy t-shirt, anklet booties and a long statement necklace… but I’ll be sticking to my tried-and-tested shift dress and Wolford Nahla Tights combination!

Trend: Sheer

Seen at: Christian Dior, PPQ, Maxmara

Sheer black tights are the hit of the season, with fashionistas from Alexa Chung to Miranda Kerr flying the flag for the shadowy sheers.  The best thing about them? They go with EVERYTHING, from floral sundresses to lace bodycons, and even city shorts and blazer pairings. A sheer 10-20 denier style is the ideal way to work the look – try my much loved Oroblu Sensuel Tights, which feel super soft to the touch and come in a huge range of colours if you’d rather branch out from black.  Or for a little more coverage, go for a 30 denier pair like the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights (which have an in built control, top, too – perfect for form fitting dresses).

Until next week…

A MyTights Experience: London Fashion Weekend

In January, I abandoned my home in freezing cold Minnesota—located in the United States—and travelled to a fast-paced city consumed with fashion. In a little over two months, London has made me obsessed with staying updated on popular and upcoming styles. This was especially apparent after London Fashion Week.  I was fortunate enough to be able to attend a designer and a trend catwalk and interning at MyTights has possessed me to find tights to accompany these upcoming trends!

pink-floral-tightsDuring the designer catwalk show, I watched Maria Grachvogel’s garments float down the runway. They were very feminine, made with chiffon and consumed with bold neutrals (especially brown) and pastel colours. The dresses and tops were also a bit oversized and flowy, which actually accentuated femininity.  I think that the Wolford Sheer 15 Tights would correspond perfectly with chiffon and flowy garments because they are very fine and mimic the sheer look of chiffon.

I also attended a trend catwalk. In this show, there were three specific trends that were highlighted for the spring and summer season. I’ll give you a hint- they were titled “Flower Power”, “Good Sport” and “Precious Metals”.

The first trend “Flower Power” featured—you guessed it—big and bold flowers. Pamela Mann Ditsy Pink Floral Tights are patterned with floral and summer colours.  The Jonathan Aston Poppy Hold Ups and Jonathan Aston Rosy Tights (I would recommend the nude ones) are also bold, but create a twist on this upcoming trend with the flowers embedded into them.stardust-glitter-seams

The second trend, “Good Sport”, was inspired by sports and athletics. The colours included vibrant orange, red, white and blue, and the designs  used geometric shapes and were paired with tennis shoes. The Charnos Stripe Mesh Tights subtly mimic the look of a referee’s shirt, which can carry-on the sporty look with any garment, but especially an athletically enthused one.

The last trend, “Precious Metals”, included metallic pleats—especially gold. The Trasparenze Charter Hold Ups and the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Tights will help you shimmer into the summer trend. The Jonathan Aston Stardust Tights also add a hint of this trend in the seam without being consumed by it, which is a great way to include this trend into your wardrobe for daytime.

I can’t wait to whip out my trendy tights this summer and I hope sharing my experience will help you embark on a summer full of fashion!

Team MyTights’ Capsule Collections

HannahCalvinKlein80DHighWaistOpaquesSuzannePrettyPollyVelvet120DI’ve always been a firm believer in the “capsule wardrobe”.  Whilst it can be tempting to impulse buy on the high street in a mad panic to find something new for a dinner date or party, investing in quality basics has always stood me in good stead, and over the years I have amassed a wonderful collection of investment buys that are utterly timeless.  As with most things, I have of course applied this to my hosiery drawer, and this week bring you my capsule hosiery collection, as well as the hosiery drawer essentials of the rest of the MyTights Team…

Opaque Tights

Classic opaque tights are a core staple of any woman’s wardrobe, and an absolute essential for me, given our temperamental British weather and fondness for bicycling in all weathers! My marketing expert Suzanne and I both love the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights, which are gloriously soft and shiny and come in a range of shades (I have them all, of course).  Hannah from the marketing team loves Calvin Klein, and the Calvin Klein 80D High Waist Tights are her absolute favourites, as they contain a little secret streamlining. Meanwhile, customer service queen Nikki and warehouse wonder woman Krys both opted for the Jonathan Aston 40D tights, which come in, as Krys says,”every colour you could want” – and so are ideal for matching to everything you own.

Lauraoroblusensual30moccaSheer Tights

Sheer tights have always been a fundamental part of my collection, and thanks to the advancements made in hosiery technology (not to mention a certain Duchess), sales of sheers have soared in recent years. I truly believe that with quality products like the Oroblu Sensuel 13 Tights you really do get what you pay for. But that’s not to say you can’t get a great bargain- Hannah loves the Pretty Polly Naturals 8D Sandal Toe Tights, which are a steal at just £5! You can even get sheers with in-built extra powers, like PR girl Emma’s favourite Charnos Energising Support which also help to keep the skin moisturised and prevent cellulite.  And the Falke Shelina Tights are a market leader when it comes to practically invisible bare leg look tights (they come in a range of shades designed with the help of dermatologists), so it’s no wonder these were Nikki’s AND Suzanne’s top pick.

Fashion Tights

Fashion tights are set to be THE accessory of the season come autumn (just ask Vogue), so I recommend adding a pair to your essentials collection. A classic pattern, like the Mary Portas Spotty Shaper Tights that made Suzanne’s must have list, or my beloved favourite lace Wolford Nahla Tights, are classic fashion styles will work season after season. For something a little more daring, make like Emma and try the Pamela Mann Paris Skyline Suspender Tights, which have an intriguing mock suspender design featuring the iconic Paris skyline – perfect got adding a little je ne sais quoi to your look.

EmmaParisSkylinePamelaMann

Other Key Pieces

These three are the starting point for any capsule hosiery collection – what you add after that depends on your personal style. Krys and Nikki both opted for socks (the former for the bold, fun Happy Socks Women’s Gift Box, and the latter for the “ideal for netball” Charnos Trainer Socks). Hannah confessed a certain weakness for the Spanx Power Panties (“an absolute essential for under clingy dresses”), and I have to say I love the SPANX Active Leggings for making me feel stylish at the gym.

I hope the team’s top picks have provided you with a little inspiration for your own capsule collection – after all, it only takes one great buy to get you started!

Until next week…

Laura’s Choice: My Top Ten Birthday Favourites

It’s my birthday this week, and as the best birthday present I could ask for is lots of sales (!) I’ve decided to give YOU a present – 15% off all my favourites when you buy any two.  Simply shop your favourites from my top ten and enter the code BIRTHDAY15 on the basket page – hurry though, as the offer ends on Thursday 27th February at midnight (GMT).  Now the only thing left to do is decide which ones you’ll pick, so I’ve let you in on the reasons I love these key pieces quite so much…

LauraFalkeSeidenglatt70BaroloFalke Seidenglatt 70 Tights: Thick, shiny, and utterly luxurious.  Falke has long been one of my favourite brands thanks to the high quality products they produce, and the Seidenglatt 70 Tights (pictured right in Barolo) are no exception. Available in a range of glorious hues from oceanic blue rich red wine shades (I think I have almost every colour they’ve ever produced in these!), they boast a thick appearance and shiny finish that adds a little elegant flair to any look.

Levante Fishnet Tights: Fishnets are a summer staple of mine – they’re perfect for allowing a little added breathability when the weather is simply too hot for sheers, and they add a little interest whilst remaining perfectly subtle.  The Italian design of these makes these an all round great classic fishnet – and they come in sizes to fit up to 6’1” – perfect for those of us with long legs!

Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights:  The perfect way splash some colour into your look, these come in a 40 deiner weight and so give even coverage without being too heavy.  Available in around 20 shades, they have a fabulously purse friendly price so you can stock up on a rainbow of shades.  You can go for colour blocking or clashing if you prefer, but I love a matchy matchy look (and as it was spotted all over the AW14 catwalks there’s now nothing to stop me!)

LauraWolfordNahlaWolford Nahla Tights: The ONLY way to do lace, I absolutely love these classic lace tights (pictured left).  With a fine net and floral lacy motif, these will instantly inject a little va va voom into your look.

Charnos Diamond Stripe Tights: Just as classic and elegant, these diamond patterned tights feature a flattering vertical design – diamonds are a girl’s best friend, after all, and the pattern will never go out of style.

Falke Shelina Tights: The best bare leg look sheer on the market.  The skintone shades have been developed with dermatologists to ensure a completely natural look on the leg (I have friends that cannot believe I’m wearing tights when I wear these with strappy sandals), while their super fine, light as air feel on the leg belies their 12 denier strength.  These are my can’t-live-without product and always, ALWAYS my go-to sheers.

Spanx Active Bottoms Shaping Compression Close Fit Pant: I’m not really a fan of footless styles and I don’t often wear shapewear, but I’m more than happy to break all my rules when it comes to these amazing shapewear leggings.  These keep everything tucked in during spin class and deliver a medium shaping control, making going to the gym a joy and eliminating the fear of bumping into someone I know on the way back!

Lauraoroblusensual30moccaOroblu Sensuel 30 Tights: When the weather is changing its mind every 2 minutes in typical British fashion, I need something that will give me a little coverage and warmth without making me overheat if the sunshine does make an appearance.  The perfect trans-seasonal staple, the semi opaque 30 denier weight and super silky feel of these (pictured right in Mocca) has made them the ideal candidate for those in between days.  Plus, they come in loads of shades so you can go for a chic black or grey for the office, or opt instead for one of the skintone shades for an airbrushing effect for your legs!

Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights: For sheers with a sleek, shiny finish, I can completely understand why customers flock towards the Aristoc Ultra Shine range.  The tights give a gorgeously glossy, polished look to the leg and come in several flattering shades, making them ideal for evening and special occasions.

Pantherella Dorothy Fairisle Socks: I just LOVE the super soft, utterly luxurious feel of Pantherella Socks, and these have a gorgeous fairisle design that comes in 4 colours and a super soft construction made up of 85% cashmere – the perfect gift for someone special (I recommend buying two pairs as once you feel them you’re bound to want to keep a pair for yourself).

 I hope you all love my favourites as much as I do.  Never mind happy birthday – happy shopping, ladies!

Until next week…
