FASHION WEEK: Tights Highlights from SS15

The month of endless Fashion Week(s) have come and gone. From New York to Paris,  designers from all over showcased their newest designs for Spring/Summer 2015. While we have just gotten into autumn, it is NEVER too early to start thinking about the upcoming trends for this spring. We here at MyTights have all the upcoming tights trends here for you so you can start stocking up early.

 

New York

Footless Black Tights seemed to be a popular accessory at the Polo Ralph Lauren Show. While these specific tights are paired with pretty white lace dresses and black accessories, these tights can be styled in virtually any way- from dressed up to dressed down.

London

The Fashion World exploded when Tom Ford gave us lots of legs styled with Black Hold Ups all over his runway in London. Styled with LBD’s, black hold ups are yet another versatile accessory that can easily be brought from day to night with a simple change in hemline.

Still not sure about socks with heels? David Longshaw showed us in London that this trend will be very alive this upcoming spring by pairing pretty socks with heels on all of his models. This trend is perfect for early spring/late fall when you want to still wear your strappy sandals without having your toes get too cold. Protection and style, what more could you ask for!?

Milan

Giamba donned all her models in white spotty tights on her runway in Milan. While we do not have white spots in stock (they have been dully noted though), black will work just as well with this trend. Take Giamba’s advice and do not be afraid to mix the spots with more spots or floral patterns.

Dolce and Gabbana shared lots of hosiery trends on their runway. My personal favorite was floraly, lacy knee high socks. These socks can be very versatile and compliments almost any outfit. Pair with strappy sandals to wear when the weather isn’t quite warm enough.

Paris

Jean Paul Gaultier said au revoir to his ‘ready to wear’ career by pulling off the most outrageously fun fashion show of Paris Fashion Week- I was extremely jealous of this ‘beauty pageant’. Many of his models were clothed in coloured tights. Pair with anything from denim shorts to a LBD as these tights are very versatile.

Last, but definitely not least: Louis Vuitton also stepped onto the tights bandwagon this year by dressing his models in lace tights. Do not be afraid to pair these tights with a pattered dress like Louis Vuitton did, it looks wonderfully fun!

Socks and Heels: easier than you think

It’s something we’ve all wished we could wear to save our toes but have never dared to try.  We’ve talked about socks with sandals but what about with pumps and booties?! Visible socks with heels have been making a comeback and we’ve gathered our top products to create the perfect summery look.

Next time you’re wearing your favourite summer dress, try pairing it with Mary Jane style heels and a complimenting sock colour.  To try this look out, I paired a flowy cut-out dress with a light floral print with Jonathan Aston’s Buttercup Socks in Dried Rose.  Paired with nude heels, the socks added some warmth to the outfit which made it perfect for a sunny but breezy day.  The soft rose colour was a perfect complement to the spring look of the dress and the white stripe at the top helped transition from sock to bare leg.

For a more wearable daytime look, try pairing the Pretty Polly Floral Spot Ankle High socks with brown booties and your favourite white dress. The looser the dress, the more relaxed your look will be.  We paired ours with a lacy white dress to bring out the lace in the sock and brown lace up booties with knit cardigan for a full on bohemian look.

Ankle socks have never been more in style, and we love the new looks that are now socially acceptable to wear. Let us know with a comment below how you wear your socks and heels.

Father’s Day!

So it’s that time of the year again, when father’s day signs and cards start to pop up all over the place as a constant reminder of the upcoming celebration.  Fear not, because whether your father is a suited and booted, slick, no-nonsense businessman or a total joker, every man needs socks . That is a fact of life.

Men generally tend to be pretty useless at replacing broken/worn down clothing so replacing his socks this Father’s day would be hugely appreciated, I have no doubts.

Maybe your Dad is bored of wearing dull suits, living a colourless life? Well then these Happy Socks Men’s Big Dot Socks could be the subtle punch of colour he needs to get him to walk with pride.

Seeing as Father’s day is all about showing appreciation for our Fathers (who would have guessed!?), fetch the old man a cup of tea and allow him to put his feet up with these super comfy Falke Cuddle Pads Slipper Socks.  These are made from a blend of cotton and wool- he’ll feel like he’s walki


There is always the more traditional
option… these Falke Airport Short Men’s Socks come in a range of colours that you can’t go wrong with, and although the name could be misleading these comfy classics aren’t just for the airport.  Ideal for any guy on the go!!ng on air. And they come in a nice gift style box, making them the perfect present idea.

Fitness fanatic father? Then these Charnos Men’s Cotton Footsies ankle socks are a sporting essential, perfect for any active man.

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 ? Hosiery fit for a fright fest!

When it comes to the annual fright fest, all things weird & wonderful go. From the downright frightful to the more subdued, October 31st is embraced by all as the occasion to bypass inhibitions and wear whatever your heart desires. In fact, the only thing frowned upon is a last minute costume! Given that a slosh of fake blood and dab of white face powder just won?t do, I?ve rounded up the best of the bunch when it comes to Halloween hosiery…Pamela Mann Twicker Tights

write my essay paper

Wicked Witches

Whether you?ve chosen to go full on coven or you?re allowing clever accessories to work their magic, witches are a hallow-classic. To keep your attire authentic, invest in a pair of stripy tights, taking care that the stripes travel horizontal. As a rule, I believe the brighter the colour, the better. Great for neon pops, the Twicker Tights from Pamela Mann come in six different variations, ensuring that when it comes to bewitching hosiery, everything?s taken care of. For a knee-high version, try the Pamela Mann Striped Over Knee Socks. Adore the stripes but you?re not keen on that fake nose? Any character from a Tim Burton film is a surefire hit, so for the ultimate Beetlejuice tribute dress pins in Solid Sheer Striped Tights from Pamela Mann. Add a slick of black lipstick to complete the look and voila! Equal parts scary & chic!

Gothic Glam

Think less frightful and more fabulous as gothic gets a glam makeover. Anything with crosses on is a given, along with a choker necklace and translucent skin tone so reclaim that black mini dress from your wardrobe and let your tights do the talking. For a touch of grunge, Pamela Mann has given the suspender tights a makeover, adding gothic crosses to their Cross Suspender Tights. If you?re after something more delicate, then the Sheer Crosses Tights from Pamela Mann are a must! Made from a lightweight 10 denier, these feature small crosses throughout. The ultimate finishing touch to any outfit, make sure to keep your hemline flirty to reveal the macabre detail and stick to an all-black colour palette for extra spooky points. For even more warmth (it is October after all!), wear the Mary Portas & Charnos Fishnet Armery underneath any short sleeves, letting the clever design vamp up your outfit even more.Celeste Stein Skulls

Theatrical Terrors

For those who want to secure the ?best dressed? accolade this year, your costume needs to be bigger and better than ever. So stray away from the norm and instead add spook appeal to your favourite onstage character or personality. A zombie Dorothy from Wizard of Oz? A murdered member of West Side Story? Whatever your preference, add old time charm with a vintage back seam or a pair of sultry stockings.? Sassy & packed full of style, the Seam and Heel Lycra tights from Jonathan Aston will help clock up fashion kudos during the fright fest. Great at elongating legs, the retro tights will also help keep you warm when you decided to forgo the coat! For a stand out style, the Pamela Mann Jive Seamed Stockings in red look fab when worn with all black and are perfect for that Chicago tribute. Simply add towering heels and a slick of red lipstick for a glamorous touch. If a ghostly Christine from Phantom of the Opera is more your style, then lacy tights are your answer. Providing a whimsical touch underneath that ball gown, the Victorienne Tights from Wolford combine floral charm with a seductive net. What?s more, these tights can be worn to brunch the next day with a shift dress, making them quite the steal!

For those celebrating Halloween during the day, earn scary credentials by wearing the Celeste Stein Black & Grey Skull Tights underneath that black wrap dress, stepping in chunky ankle boots for a rock chick edge. Subtle but spooky, these are bound to get admiring glances…

Happy Halloween ladies!

Until next time…

Laura

 

 

 

P.S If you really have left it to the last minute, you can still order your Halloween tights right up until 5pm on the 30th October, selecting Royal Mail Special Delivery at the checkout!

London Fashion Week – Our hosiery highs and lows!

It?s that time of year ladies, as I round up my favourite moments from the fashion blitz that hit London this week. It seems that it was only last month that I recalling the AW13 highlights, but this time round, designers have done it bigger ? and better. From pretty pastels and sultry sheer panels, the last week has been awash with fabulous ideas for our wardrobe, and as ever, my hosiery sixth sense has come into play!

iphone text tracker

ashish-odd-socksFirst things first, it appears that socks of all shapes and sizes are on the agenda come spring next year. From mismatched to knee high, I?ve spotted quite a few designers embracing the must have accessory.? Leading the way when it comes to all things quirky, thrice winner of the BFC New Generation award

ASHISH experimented with odd socks. Yes, you read that right, odd socks! With all patterns and shades welcome, it appears that the charming laundry accident is set to become fashionable. For the adventurous out there that are willing to try it, I recommend stocking up on the Monique Socks from Trasparenze. Super lightweight and ankle length, the colourful socks have a purse friendly price tag that will forgive the need to buy two pairs at a time. On the other end of the spectrum, pattern enthusiasts Orla Kiely have gone back to basics, letting knee highs add a quintessentially British touch to their SS14 collection. Straw coloured for a neutral look, the Falke Soft Merino Wool Knee Highs in ?Linen? are a must if you want to recreate the look sooner than later.

My personal highlight of LFW has to be Burberry Prossum. A delicate combination of floaty fabrics and macaroon pastels, I?m pre-empting a tidal wave of baby pinks and lilacs for next spring. To get one step ahead of crowd, invest in an array of pastel tinted legwear now. From Jonathan Aston, the Sheer Coloured Tights in Mint and Fuchsia are perfect, whilst the 50 Denier Tights from Pamela Mann in Lavender are a must. ?And when it comes to pastel hued hosiery on the catwalks, I?ve spotted my fair share of off-white ankle socks making their appearance. For a high quality pair that will last all year round (and not just for SS14!), treat feet to the Falke Family All Round Socks.

Taking care of our evenings, the likes of Mark Fast and Simone Rocha have made sure that black is firmly back on our colour wheel. By incorporating sheerer panels and faint patterns, both designers have set the standard high when it comes to getting dressed for that night out. To work a little of this sheer magic into your wardrobes now, invest in a good pair of sheer tights.

Pretty Pastels!

Simple but sound advice as a great quality black sheers will stand the test of time, going with just about anything and everything.? To start with, a ladder resistant pair is always best, making sure that no matter how hectic your schedule is, you?ll never have to worry about a pesky run. A favourite of mine, the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights come prepared with revolutionary ladder resist LYCRA? Fusion?fibres to guarantee that a small snag will never develop into anything more. For a winter-friendly alternative, try going up in denier to the Aristoc Ultimate Satin 20 Tights. With a 20 denier appearance and a shiny finish, these will go beautifully underneath that LBD or shift dress. For a shorter but just as sheer version, team the Levante Class Knee Highs with strappy shoes and platforms. Admittedly not my cup of tea, I?ve been assured that come spring, we?ll all be wearing them…

I can only wonder what trends and colours AW14 catwalks will bring with them!

Festival Hosiery ? The Good, The Bad and The Muddy!

That?s right ladies, that time of the year has arrived and it?s time to pack away those muddy wellies as the festival season leaves us for the year, taking with it hazy memories of seeing your favourite band and attempting to construct (and re-build) that tent.

Naturally, we?ve taken the opportunity to round up our favourite hosiery looks, as we comb through the endless fabulous outfits and we?ve spotted quite a few celebrities debuting their impressive legwear collection too! From Reading and Leeds to Glasto, we?ve come up our top three looks, making sure that when festival season revisits next year, you?ll have that head start.

Festival style!

To begin with, we adored the way that Jameela Jamil embraced animal print at V Festival. By teaming her jungle themed opaques with quirky accesories and a simple LBD, the Radio One presenter and model showed us all that she had her finger on the fashion pulse and we can?t wait to try it out ourselves. For an exact match that will work on and off fields, try teaming the Jonathan Aston Wild Tights with an oversized clutch, stepping into this season?s ankle boot for an edgy touch. For those craving one more print to add to their wardrobe, why not treat legs to the luxurious Mystery Leggings from Trasparenze, packed full of a sassy snakeskin print.

Next on our wish list was original Sugababe Mutya?s tribute to all things lacy. Equal parts charming and chic, the style savvy singer made sure to readdress the girly vs grungy balance, teaming her black lace tights with an oversized baseball jersey and lace up boots.? Just as dramatic and even more luxurious are the Wolford Victorienne Tights, which feature an elaborate floral design that runs throughout the open net fabric. However, if you?re after a softer and more subtle look that you can wear to the office, we suggest the Scroll Net Tights from Charnos. Decadent and dashing, the fancy scroll detail will never overwhelm outfits (perfect for those weary of pattern) and will look gorgeous when styled with a simple shift dress and quilted pumps.

And last but by no means least, Louise from London based reality show Made In Chelsea has shown us all that socks are still very much an essential for any happy camper, showing us that no wellington boot is complete without a cosy and chic pair! Opting for a classic, goes-with-everything black over knee pair, the pint sized socialiate collected fashion brownie points, customising hers with gold studs. If you?re a fan of that over knee style, then make sure to stock up on the Pamela Mann Over Knee Socks. Available in four fabulous shades for even more fun, these create a bold leg silhouette, delivering a snug fit and cosy feel.? For a party appropriate alternative, then the Lurex Highball Overknee Socks from Pamela Mann are just the ticket, working to inject a little shimmer into that jersey dress or skater skirt.

So whether you?ve a penchant for lace or refuse to surrender your long socks, take solace in the fact that we have another twelve months to perfect that festival and field friendly look…!

Style File: Jameela Jamil and her festival tights!

So the festival season is coming to an end and DJ-come-style-icon Jameela Jamil has made sure that thanks to her choice of hosiery, it finishes with a flourish. Making an appearance at the glamorous V Festival (with Beyonce headlining, it was going to be nothing short of fabulous), the gorgeous 27 year old has clearly perfected her festival style, achieving a balance between all things pretty and practical. Oversized parka in case of torrential downpour? Tick. Sassy sunglasses for when the weather cheers up? Tick. Animal print tights for fashion kudos? Double tick.Animal Print!

Proving that festivals don?t always mean muddy wellies and socks, the quirky Radio One DJ teamed her ruffled mini dress with a pair of fetching printed tights. A tribute to the trend that?s set to invade our wardrobes this season, animal print hosiery is the easiest and most commitment free way to get involved. Whether you?re a lover of leopard or crave subtle snake print to finish off that outfit, we?ve got the ultimate selection to choose from.

For a look just like Miss Jamil?s, treat your hosiery collection to the Wild Tights by Jonathan Aston. Available in two different colour combinations (nude with a black print and black with a black print), the exotic animal print is perfect for adding a little interest to understated dresses and skirts. Using both sheer and opaque fabric, an eye catching leopard print runs from the toes to the waist, making for a cheeky alternative to those everyday sheer tights. With a loyal celebrity fan base too (including the likes of Pixie Lott and the Kardashians), these have just moved to the top of our lust have list this season!

how to make money as a teenager

If you?re still coveting animal print but can?t bear to part with your cosy leggings, we?ve got some good news. Knowing all too well that when the temperatures plummets we turn to anything that can conserve heat, Italian brand Trasparenze have created the luxurious & lovely Mystery Leggings. As soft as they are smooth, these combine that snug feeling that leggings do so well with a slinky snakeskin effect. Demure enough for you to wear to work but with a sartorial edge that makes them party appropriate, it?s safe to say we?re big fans. Likewise, the Legend Leggings from the brand pay homage to the big cats of the animal kingdom, with a faux denim print and leopard print fade.? Team with a cropped leather jacket and Chelsea boots for complete festival chic.

Jameela Jamil, we want your wardrobe!
