Kristen Stewart

Kristen Stewart

 

Queen of rock chick style? Twilight star Kristen Stewart wins every time. Known for her edgy fashion streak, the 25 year old actress this week graced the pages of Nylon Magazine, posing in a series of quirky outfits that she pulled off to a T. With one style featuring a pair of black ankle socks, our favourite was the outfit below, wearing a striking zebra print jacket with pleather skater skirt and gorgeous wet look leggings! Similar in thickness to trousers but capable of updating your look in an instant, wet look leggings bring instant attitude, and can be worn both in the day (think statement tees and ankle boots) or in the evening with heels and a dressy top. Envious of her legwear? Don’t fret, as it just so happens we’ve rounded up our top 5 wet look styles – just in time for the autumn…

Wolford Estella Leggings – a real investment piece, these leather leggings may be pricy, but we think they’re worth every penny, with their high shine finish and quirky seam on the knee. Eat your heart out, Kate Moss!

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings – not only giving you a rock chick style but trimming your figure too, these mock leather leggings from Spanx will send your style status through the roof, and target your muffin top, thighs and rear in utter secrecy.

Laura’s Choice: Your most searched for!

When it comes to figuring out exactly what’s trending in the world of hosiery, forget trawling through the tabloids or religiously following the catwalks, we have another foolproof method – and it comes from you, our customers! Through the magic of modern marketing, we’re able to keep tracks on the terms that our customers search for most when shopping on our website, therefore finding out which hosiery you stylish lot have been wearing on your legs this season. With this in mind, we’ve taken a look at the top 5 common search terms, and rounded up our favourite styles of each, leaving us with the crème de la crème that you’ve been snapping up left, right and centre…

 

Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights

Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights

Search Term 1: Fishnet Tights

What wardrobe is complete with a pair of trusty fishnets? Great in the summer, you can also wear in the winter by layering over sheers or like me, coloured tights. If you’re after a classic pair that won’t break the bank, head to the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights, which do exactly what they say on the tin and come in a host of brighter colours if you’re feeling experimental.  Need something a little more understated for the office? Micronet tights are the way to go, not least with the Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights, available in both black and natural and offering coverage similar to a pair of sheers. My favourites however are the Trasparenze Rita Tights, which have a slightly wider net than would be considered traditional. Fab for layering over a pair of coloured tights to brighten up plainer outfits – I particularly love the Indigo and Mattone (burnt orange)! And proving that you lot know what you’re talking about when it comes to fashion, fishnets have emerged as one of the top trends for this season, so stocking up is a must!

 

Falke Seidenglatt 70D Tights

Falke Seidenglatt 70D Tights

Search Term 2: Glossy Tights

Shiny without leaving everyone you pass wishing they’d packed a pair of sunglasses, glossy tights are brilliant for taking a day outfit into the evening. For an everyday pair of sheers, it comes as no surprise to me that the Aristoc Ultra Shine Tights are continually amongst our bestsellers.  Robust, affordable and chic to a T, these shiny 10 denier tights fly off the shelf. If you love the look of these but require something EVEN shinier, I’d also recommend the Levante Class Tights, which are ever so slightly thicker at a 12 denier. Proving that wrapping up warm can be glam too, the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights always deserve a mention. Virtually indestructible, soft to touch and with a sensational shimmer, they’ve long been one of my favourites, and come in 4 stylish shades. No round up of glossy tights would be complete without the Neon 40’s from Wolford, that not only make legs stand out from the crowd but combine a durable 40 denier yarn with the appearance of a 20 denier sheer – great for navigating between seasons!

 

Search Term 3: Seamed Hosiery

 

The hosiery world seems to have gone (quite literally) full circle! You might not know that all nylon tights originally started out with a backseam, as this was the point where two sides were hand-sewn together, thus creating a line. After years of being considered dated or unfashionable, seamed hosiery is as popular as it’s ever been, and it’s great for giving your outfits a retro twist and can even make your legs appear longer than they are! If it’s a classic pair of tights you’re after, look no further than the Jonathan Aston Seam and Heel Lycra Tights, with their slender backseam and vintage Cuban heel.  As well as the more traditional styles, our brands love nothing more than to put a modern day spin on the trend, hence styles such as the Jonathan Aston In Bloom Tights (floral seam) and the Charnos Spot Backseam Tights (polkadots, predictably). It’s not only tights with seams either, and if you’re a fan of hold ups, you’ll love the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Hold Ups, which combine a cut and sew lace pattern with slender seam.

 

Search Term 4: Spanx

No matter how many times we get up at the crack of dawn to partake in a new exercise fad, it’s unlikely we’re ever going to be 100% happy with our figure. That’s where shapewear comes in, and it seems that our customers love the shaping magic of Spanx just as much as us. And with our brand new Spanx page, it’s easier than ever to find the right style for you! Spanx products come in a wealth of different forms, depending on your problem zones and the type of strength you require. While it would be impossible to round up everything in this paragraph, I should definitely point you in the direction of their newest Shape My Day range. Comprising everything from shaping shorts that lift your rear through to all over shapers, the collection is sleeker, more effective, and even more affordable that styles past. Replacing the Slim Cognito range, they offer very strong control to tackle your problem zones instantly.

 

Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Opaque Thermal Footless Tights

Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Opaque Thermal Footless Tights

Search Term 5: Footless

Footless styles are great for wearing with sandals or open toed shoes, so always grow in popularity at this time of year. Generally thinner than leggings, footless tights usually require a longer hemline to cover up, and if you’re a fan, we have a fab selection at MyTights. For connoisseurs of colour, your first port of call should be the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights. Just like their footed counterparts, these 50 denier tights are available in an array of colours, with everything from classic black through to the vibrant flo yellow. If you’re less about colour and more about prints, check out the Pamela Mann Bonnie Leggings, which have a tartan pattern that even the most patriotic of Scots would be proud of. It may be a bit premature in August, but we’ve already got one eye on the winter, so it’s also worth taking a look at the Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Thermal Opaque Tights, which have a brushed fleece lining to keep the cold firmly out!

 

Until next time…

Laura’s Choice: Body Perfecting Hosiery!

Life: it has a habit of getting in the way, doesn’t it? Whether spending all hours at your desk or tackling the never-ending pile of ironing, there’s just never enough hours in the day for some well-earned me time. But forget fad diets and ‘miracle creams’ that do the exact opposite of what they say on tin, a brilliant way to perfect your look is with trusty hosiery! At MyTights, we believe that your legs are there to be looked after, which is why we’ve sourced the very best in body perfecting hosiery on the market. From tights that combat the curse of cellulite through to hosiery that smoothes over figures without lifting a finger, we’ve got the shortcut to body confidence covered.

 

Charnos Energising Support Tights

Charnos Energising Support Tights

Skin Perfecting Saviours

We know you already look fabulous, but if you crave a helping hand to perfect your pre-holiday skin, look no further than the Charnos Energising Support Range. Quite simply the hardest working hosiery on the market, this innovative collection not only looks great, but comes with a host of hidden features that would leave even Superwoman feeling inferior. Each of the products has been coated with a luxurious mix of Vitamin E, Sea Kelp and Shea Butter that actively moisturise your skin as you go about your daily routine. Not content with cutting your beauty regime in half, the range also helps to combat cellulite (yes, really!) through the use of compression that stimulates blood flow and prevents your legs from feeling lethargic. Who would argue with that?!

For medium support, check out the Charnos Energising Support Tights, opting for the Energising Support Knee Highs if it’s your lower legs that need pampering. Or if you require a little extra support, treat legs to the Firm Energising Support Tights.

 

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wave goodbye to imperfections: Coverage Tights

Working at a hosiery company, we’ve become accustomed to images of models with impossibly long legs and perfect skin, but we know that this isn’t a true reflection of the average woman. But instead of lamenting your imperfections, learn to love what you’ve got with our range of coverage tights! Similar to wearing make-up on your legs (just without the mess), coverage tights help to even out skin tone and mask blemishes such as scars or varicose veins.

The trick to finding coverage tights is to opt for sheers that are slightly thicker than the average (20-30 denier, ideally),  which are still sheer enough to achieve a summery look without looking like you’ve dressed for mid Feb. Top of the bill, for me, are the Wolford Neon 40 Tights. Don’t be fooled by the name; although these tights have the durability of a 40 denier, they appear like 20 denier tights, camouflaging your flaws and coming with a suitably glam glossy finish. For something a little more affordable, Italian brand Oroblu also have a great option with their Sensuel 30 Tights. Available in 7 shades and with a slight sheen for day to night versatility, these tights are virtually indestructible and will feel utterly lovely against your skin. Or for the same peace of mind but with a little extra luxury, make a beeline for the Falke Sensation Seamless 20 Tights, which come free from any seams, so you can wear figure hugging dresses to your heart’s content.

 

Aristoc Bodytoners Low Leg Toner Tights

Aristoc Bodytoners Low Leg Toner Tights

Control Top

Amongst everything else we have on our to-do list, it’s not always easy to find the time (or motivation) to exercise. If you’ve found your gym pass gathering dust, control top tights may be the perfect solution. Defining your silhouette and remaining completely hidden from outside view, control top tights appear just like any other fashion-forward hosiery, but come with secret panels to smooth over the most common problem zones. It’s an absolute must for me to point you in the direction of the Aristoc Bodytoners Range, comprising 5 pairs of tights that target different areas of your body. From the Tummy Tuck Tights for your midriff to the Low Leg Toner Tights for your tum, bum and thighs, this range of sheers is affordable, effective and should be your first port of call! For stronger control, the same name always crops up: Spanx! It’s not all about shaping suits and the like at Spanx HQ, either, as they actually also produce shaping tights. The Spanx In Power Line Super Shaping Sheers combine strong control shorts with inbuilt sheer tights – one secret we’re very happy to keep. Or for smoothing control with the quality of Wolford, head to the Wolford Individual 10 Control Top Tights, offering a high-end look that will stand the test of time. After something a little more purse-friendly? The Charnos Killer Figure Hourglass Control Tights are just the ticket with their medium control, slight sheen finish and reinforced toe.

Whatever your body insecurities, you’ll find the answer at MyTights!

Until next time…

kim-kardashianA big booty only gets bigger when a baby is on board; which soon-to-be mother of two Kim Kardashian knows all too well.

Laura’s Choice: Summer Shapewear!

While the winter months are all about hibernating and seeking solace in a hot water bottle, social calendars in the summer are jam packed. Whether attending weddings, garden parties or catching the rays in a beer garden, summer is a time to let your hair down and have some good old fashioned fun. And with all those social occasions pencilled into your diary, you’ll no doubt have been eyeing up that dress you simply HAVE to have, not to mention those heels that will probably result in a twisted ankle come midnight! But have you considered finishing off your look with some shapewear? Don’t be daunted by the ‘S’ word; it’s now discreet, comfortable and incredibly effective. With something to slot beneath any choice of outfit, the collection of summer shapewear at MyTights will ensure that no matter the occasion, your figure will always look amazing!

 

Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short

Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short

Shaping Shorts

Target zone: tummy, rear, hips

Pros: Perfect for wearing with figure-hugging party dresses

Covering both your rear and the common problem zone at the top of the thigh (depending on height), shapewear shorts are a great option for the summer where dresses tend to be slightly less forgiving. Top of the bill are the Spanx Shape My Day Girl Shorts, stemming from the brand new Shape My Day range. Utilising the latest innovations in the world of ‘slimming and trimming’, these medium control shorts are altogether sleeker, more affordable and comfortable than styles past. Perfect for taming your tummy and lifting your rear, they’re perfect for wearing beneath party dresses, and come with a seamless waistband to remain incognito no matter how figure hugging your outfit.! Or if you want to enjoy the same shaping magic but with a feminine twist, check out the Pretty Polly Lace Shaper Short, with a chic floral lace design and purse-friendly price tag!

 

Mid Thigh Shapers

Target zone: thighs, tummy, waist, hips

Pros: Great for teaming with longer length dresses

Mid thigh shapers differ from shaping shorts in that they extend slightly further down your leg, finishing halfway between your knee and waist. While this means that the shortest of hemlines should be avoided, it’s worth it for all that extra shaping magic! The good news is that we have something to suit everyone, not least with the Spanx Shape My Day High Waisted Mid Thigh. Using medium control to tame your lumps and bumps, this shaper reaches just beneath the braline, making it particularly valuable for anyone conscious about their stomach. Prefer something that focuses on your rear? The Ambra Killer Figure Bum Lifting Shorts could be just the ticket. Doing exactly what it says on the tin (okay, packet), these mid thigh shorts use clever pockets of fabric to lift your derrierre, whilst smoothing your hips, thighs tum AND waist. Giving you a bottom that J-Lo would covet, anything that means I can skip spinning class in the morning is a winner in my eyes!

 

 

Trinny & Susannah All In One Body Smoother

Trinny & Susannah All In One Body Smoother

Open Bust Shapers

Target zone: focusing on your tummy, up to the braline

Pros: You can wear your own bra for all the support you need!

Shapewear is all well and good, but it can be tricky for anyone with a bigger bust. If this sounds all too familiar, the answer to your woes lies in open bust shapers. Giving you the same shaping effect but designed to be worn with your own bra, these shapers also give you the opportunity to wear any type of neckline, so they’re perfect for those of you who like lower neck dresses. In my opinion, the best on the market come from (surprise, surprise) Spanx, opting for the Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Cami if you require medium control, or the Spanx Slimplicity Open Bust Mid Thigh Bodysuit for something a little firmer. Retail gurus Trinny and Susannah also stock a great option with their All in One Body Smoother, which, as the name would suggest, targets all of the most common problem zones in utter secrecy.

 

Spanx In Power Line Super Shaping Sheers

Spanx In Power Line Super Shaping Sheers

Shaping Tights

Target zone: tummy, hips, thighs

Pros: Convenience!

Anyone who’s worn shapewear in the past will know that it can be a drag having to wear hosiery over the top of your shapewear. Not only can it be uncomfortable, it just makes our already lengthy getting ready process even longer! But don’t fret, as you can enjoy the smoothing prowess of shapewear with an attached hosiery leg. For fans of sheers, opt for the Spanx In Power Line Shaping Sheers, which have a 15 denier pair of tights attached to shaping shorts. They also come in a footless variation should you be a devotee to sandals or open-toed shoes. Got a little’un on the way? In typical Spanx fashion, they’ve even branched into the maternity market with the Mama Spanx Maternity Tights. With a comfort panel that sits beneath your bump, these 20 denier tights are chic, completely safe and make your expectant months that little bit more bearable (especially in the summer heatwaves!). No section of shaping tights is complete without the bestselling Aristoc Bodytoners Range. With five fabulous products designed to target different problem zones, this range is ever popular and most importantly, will keep your bank manager on side!

 

Armery

Target zone: your arms (unsurprisingly!)

Pros: Great for wearing with sleeveless dresses

Armery? What’s that we hear you say? Perfect if you’ve fallen for a sleeveless dress but don’t want to show off your arms, cover up with the Mary Portas & Charnos Ruched Cuff Armery. Sculpting your arms and banishing the dreaded ‘bingo wing effect’, these chic shapers are ideal for weddings and formal events. Whether you’re the Mother of The Bride or heading to the races, this 140 denier shaper is a must have for boosting your confidence this season.

Let’s just hope the weather behaves! Be sure to check out our whole shapewear collection before you leave!

Until next time…

Miranda Kerr

 

Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings

Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings

While we’re not sure leather leggings are an appropriate choice of legwear for a long haul flight (something with a bit more give, please!), we can’t help but admire how fabulous Miranda Kerr looked arriving at LAX earlier this week. The supermodel and wife of Orlando Bloom looked effortlessly chic, pairing her black leather leggings, with a pair of ankle boots, bright blue tee and stylish navy jacket. It’s fair to say we might not have her never-ending pins or showbiz lifestyle for that, but there’s no reason why any of us can’t replicate her stylish look with the selection of wet look and leather leggings at MyTights!

 Forever at the height of trend, everyday favourites Pamela Mann have ensured that a celebrity look needn’t cost through the roof with their Leather Look Leggings. Befitting of even the most rock chick of styles and perfectly opaque, these leggings are perfect for wearing with oversized tees in the days and cropped tops for the evening. Or if you prefer something with even more statement appeal, check out the Wet Look Leggings from the same brand, for the same vampy look, but with more shine!

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

Spanx Faux Leather Leggings

Never adverse to the finer things in life? Then you’ll love the Estella Leggings from luxury hosiery label Wolford. They may be pricey, but we think they’re worth every penny, giving any ensemble instant fash points and coming with a quirky seam on the knee for a style twist. While Miranda herself doesn’t need any help with trimming her figure, you can enjoy the same vixen look and smooth over your problem zones in the process with the Spanx Faux Leather Leggings. Utilising discreet shaping control to tame your tummy, thighs and hips, these fashion leggings prove that wearing shapewear doesn’t mean compromising on style.

Laura’s Choice: Wedding Season!

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

The wedding season is upon us! You’ve found THE dress, the best man has coiffed his speech to perfection, and your table decorations are everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Now all you need is some beautiful hosiery to match! Whether you’re the blushing bride, the hungover groom or the reluctant bridesmaid, MyTights.com have a fantastic selection of wedding hosiery to hand. From silk socks for guys through to the obligatory wedding day garter, we have just the thing to leave your legs looking their best on the special day. Now just to make sure you get to the church on time!

 

 

 

The Bride

Let’s face it, the bride is the centre of attention on every wedding day. With all eyes on your walk down the aisle, it’s vital that every inch of your look is perfect, including your hosiery! Looking for a classic bare leg look? The Wolford Transparency 10 Tights could be just the ticket. Appearing like you’ve braved bare legs, these 10 denier tights boast a beautifully natural finish and all the luxury features that Wolford are renowned for. And what’s more, with their lightweight finish, you won’t overheat no matter how long the train on your dress!

Or if you want something a little more romantic as you say your vows, check out the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Hold Ups, with a sumptuous lace effect and vintage backseam. For those of you who embrace all of the age-old traditions with gusto, the Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter is a must. Staying in place no matter how many pictures you pose for, the lace and ribbon effect makes for a fabulous finishing touch to your gown.

The Bridal Party

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Upstaging the bride may be the ultimate wedding day sin, but that doesn’t mean the bridal party can’t look their best. For a rear that even bridesmaid extraordinaire Pippa Middleton would be proud of, how about trying out the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘butt-lets’ that slot into pockets and give your derriere a lift! For mothers of the bride, it has to be the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights. Offering a ‘no hosiery’ look but with failsafe LYCRA® Fusion technology, your legs will not only look flawless, but remain free from ladders from the ceremony to the after-party. If your dress is on the plain side, what better way to take your style up a notch than with the elegant Oroblu Adelle Tights? Covered in an array of dainty dots, these patterned gems are not only on trend but have a sheer to waist brief, meaning any length of hemline can work.

For the guests 

Whether it’s a distant cousin or a work colleague, looking fabulous for a wedding is a must! The great thing about being a guest rather than playing a part in a wedding is that you can really experiment with different kind of hosiery to accessorize your dress. One such way to do that is with seams, and, getting into the wedding spirit, we love the Pamela Mann Love Seam Tights. These 15 denier sheers have a slender backseam culminating in the word ‘LOVE’ etched on each ankle – how romantic! Or how about opting for a pair of fishnet tights? For something a little different to the norm, make a beeline for the Charnos Honeycomb Net Tights with a fine mesh fabric resembling honeycomb itself. Another perk of being a guest is that you needn’t worry about showing yourself up on the dance floor. Heels aren’t always forgiving, so make sure your feet stay refreshed with a pair of the Levante Shoe Monkeys Foot Cushions, taking the pressure away from your feet.

The Groom

 

Falke Tiago Men's Short Socks

Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks

Because it’s not all about the bride! Believe it or not, the groom plays a fairly big part in the day too, so it’s important they look suitably dapper. For a classic wedding day look, grab a pair of the Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks, made with 98% cotton for a beautifully soft finish and keeping your feet cool all day long. Or if you’re the kind of guy who likes to experiment with fashion, the Happy Socks Men’s Socks Gift Box should be your port of call. With four funky socks (spots, stripes and everything in between), the hardest part will be choosing which pair to sport on the big day.

With wedding pictures set to take pride of place on your mantelpiece, you’ll want to look as trim as possible. With that in mind, invest in the Spanx For Men range. Flattening your stomach, firming the chest and even improving your posture, simply layer beneath your suit and you’re good to go.

 

Have a fantastic day!

Bye Dave! Tina Fey flashes Spanx

Tina Fey has never been one to blend into the crowd, has she? The Mean Girls actress certainly isn’t afraid to get people talking, and that’s exactly what she did this week when appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman. Declaring her love for the popular chat show host, the actress quite literally gave him the dress off her back, unzipping her blue dress to commemorate his last ever episode in the hotseat. Revealing a hilarious bodice with ‘Bye Dave’ emblazoned across the front, her Spanx shaping suit was visible for all to see!

Tina Fey

Tina Fey

We love it when celebrities are open about wearing Spanx; after all, who doesn’t need a little shaping support from time to time? It’s reassuring to know that even high-profile celebrities like Fey turn to Spanx when they need a little help getting into a dress, and with the wedding season in full swing, we thought we’d round up our favourite shape to ensure you look fabulous in your new summer dresses.

Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body

Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body

If you crave some all over shaping support à la Fey, opt for the Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body. A new addition to the Spanx range, this super slimming bodysuit uses seamless zones for the most discreet and comfortable fit yet, banishing your wobbly bits and coming without any material at the bust, meaning you can wear your own bra. If it’s just your tummy that needs a little taming, have a look at the Spanx Higher Power – New & Slimproved. The name speaks for itself, with these strong control panties using amped up tummy panels to flatten your midriff in secrecy.

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

 

 

Is your derriere in need of a boost? We love the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘buttlets’ to slot into your rear to give you a rear that even Kim Kardashian would envy. If your hips are your problem zone, take a look at the Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short, again utilizing seamless sections to ensure long-lasting comfort. Smoothing over your tummy and hip area, these shaping shorts also come with a 360° seamless waistband for a light as a feather feel.

Whatever your insecurity, Spanx has something to suit. Tina Fey, we salute you!

Laura’s Choice – Footless and Fancy Free!

Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights

Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights

Footloose and fancy free, footless tights are the perfect solution.

Leaving you with change leftover from a fiver, these 50 denier lovelies are thick enough to cover your legs, without overheating should a summer heatwave take hold (unlikely, I know!)

Thanks to innovative elastic fibres, these footless tights have a generous stretch that will move alongside your legs, as well as adding a dash of durability and leading to a beautifully even appearance. Oh, and with 16 colours in the mix, all of your outfits can join in on the fun!

Especially for fuller figured beauties, flatter your curves in the Pamela Mann 50D Plus Size Footless Tights, again just £4.99 a pair and accommodating for dress sizes up to a UK 28-32.

The secret saviours

Any of you who regularly read our blog will know we love hosiery with hidden benefits. After all, who doesn’t want as much from their money as possible? With the mercury rising, I have to point you in the direction of the Pretty Polly Coolsense Footless Tights. While you may fool the outside world into thinking these are any old pair of footless tights, they’re actually made from Nilit Breeze yarns. None the wiser? Considerably smoother and lighter than other footless styles, the innovative yarns mean that you’ll always stay at least 1◦c cooler than usual, keeping you feeling lovely refreshed – even after a mad dash for the bus! Or if the thought of tomorrow mornings spin class fills you with dread, iron out your lumps and bumps the easy way with the Spanx In Power Line Super Footless Shaper. Strong control shaping shorts with inbuilt 15 denier footless tights, your body insecurities aren’t going to hang around for much longer!

The fashion favourites

Basic styles are a key part of every wardrobe, but for events where only glamour will suffice, take a look at the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights. As seen on Fearne Cotton, these fabulous footless tights are covered in shimmering glitter. Packed full of wow factor and destined for parties, your inner disco diva can choose between silver and gold sparkle depending on your style preference.

Paying homage to the trend for patterns and prints, another of my top picks are the Trasparenze Graphium Leggings. Coming in at a 40 denier, these decorative leggings are covered in an ornamental paisley print to rack up the style points. Or if you’re forever falling under the charms of lace, opt for the Oroblu Sherry Leggings, new for SS15 and coming with a sumptuous floral lace effect against a tulle base.

Does coloured hosiery makes you go weak at the knees? Stocking up on the Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings is a must. Whether you wow in white or thrill in fuchsia pink, these 70 denier leggings are perfect for pairing with summer tunics and brightening your look. If you don’t want your daughter to be green with envy, treat her to the Country Kids Capri Tights, with 10 summery shades and sizes ranging from 3 years all the way up to 11.

Footless styles are chic, effortless and ready to kickstart your summer wardrobe. Now, if only locating my summery sandals was this easy…
