What to wear over Xmas

Christmas for me really is the most wonderful time of the year. I adore smelling the pine trees, listening to those sweet carollers, watching classic films, and of course unwrapping a new pair of luxurious tights! This magical season provides us with a multitude of options and opportunities to show off our legs and navigate the packed high street in style.

Christmas Eve
If you are attending a Christmas Eve event then these Starburst?tights from Jonathan Aston are sure to put a spring in your step. Made with care from a multicoloured glitter yarn, your legs are bound to attract admiring glances while you dance away to Wham and Wizard.

If you are craving a vintage look with a fun twist then why not plump for these Starstudded tights again from Jonathan Aston? These 60 denier sheers gleam as much as they sparkle. Evoking 50?s glamour with a sexy backseam made from crystals, you?ll have plenty of admirers ushering you towards the mistletoe.

Are you craving a pair of glamorous stockings without the hassle? There is no need to sacrifice any of your ?getting ready? time with these Yacht tights from Trasparenze.?Their shimmering floral garter is just divine, achieving a seductive yet refined look. Pretty shimmering polka dots created from metallic thread are both fun and elegant. Team these twinkly tights with a black lace dress for a sophisticated look. These tights would go perfectly with a festive ensemble, the sparkly polka dots doubling for falling snow.

Christmas Day

Your tree is looking marvellous, the living room is so beautifully ornate it puts Kirstie Allsopp to shame, and now the only thing left is to decorate your legs! If you are a big fan of all things festive then these Celeste Stein Christmas Glittery Ornament tights are for you.?Celeste Stein have created a beautiful design crammed with Christmas ornaments woven from a high quality metallic thread. I?m wearing these jolly tights with my bright red Boden shift dress.

However, if you would rather the baubles remained on the tree, you can still get into the Christmas spirit with a pair of deep crimson tights. Pamela Mann?s 50 Denier tights are available in a vast range of colours, including our favourite vibrant scarlet shade ? ideal for this merry season.?Not only will these opaques look fantastic, they will also give an even coverage thanks to the super smart 3D elastane fibre. I advise you to match this perky hosiery with a mid-length black leather pleated skirt, a crisp white shirt and pearls ? 3 key trends for Yuletide.

Boxing Day

It?s raining outside, the temperatures are plummeting, and therefore what could be better than relaxing in a pair of comfy, cosy woollen socks? Our Pantherella Tabitha anklet socks are so luxurious, and they are made from such sumptuous cashmere, that even your most Scrooge-like friends will be impressed.

At MyTights, all we want for Christmas is a pair of sublime Transparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks. Made with a generous amount of mixed wool and elastic, these socks will keep your toes toasty ? but won?t slip down as you sip on your Buck?s Fizz.?It?s just a shame that for many people this year these stunning socks will be hidden under a festive onesie. ?Match these with a tartan skirt and a white woolen jumper for Highland chic.

And last but not least? if the children haven?t quite been pampered enough this year, then do be sure to look at our Falke Kid?s catspad socks.?Fitted with anti-slip material, the little ones can run around with their new toys safely ? phew!

Have yourselves a merry little Christmas ladies!

Until next time…

TREND: Extravagence

I?ve often wondered what it is that draws humans (particularly girls and, more specifically, me) to all things shiny (in case you were interested, it?s a genetics thing, as our ancient ancestors learnt that glitter often meant fresh drinking water).? I?ve long had a magpie like tendency to anything shiny or sparkly and thankfully fashion now agrees with me, meaning I can stop shopping at Claire?s Accessories for a bling fix and gravitate towards a more grown up kind of glitz.

It probably won?t surprise you that my first stop in my quest for extravagance was in the world of hosiery ? where I quickly realised I was spoilt for choice!? This season, glitz and glamour are the order du jour, and all you need to add is your trusty LBD and a little bling for a showstopping Autumn/Winter look.

Tights for Little Legs

Last month it was all about the who’s who of the fashion world showing us what we had in store this Autumn and it seems that this week it’s happening again…except the models are a lot smaller…and cuter!

For the first time ever in the history of catwalks , our little ones are in the spotlight as Global Kids Fashion Week visits London for a two day delight. In light of this, I’ve decided to dedicate Laura’s Choice to those with very little legs. Whilst they may have knack for transforming our lipsticks into impromptu crayons and emptying expensive perfumes into the bathtub, they adore tights as much as we do in the grown up world. And why shouldn’t they? With the ability to pull off candy pink and glitter more than most of us can, I believe that children’s hosiery should be as fun and as fashionable as the tights we fold away in drawers ourselves.

I’ve even spotted a few celebrity tots debuting their admirable hosiery collection,with Harper Beckham rarely photographed in anything but her cosy tights and Geri Halliwell’s daughter Bluebell showing off her love of coloured opaques.

But before we get too fussed with glitter and offspring of the A-list, lest we forget just how quickly these little ones move! Over the years, I’ve witnessed my nieces run in the door from school, complete with the latest dried pasta collage and a new collection of snags in their tights. Short of going out and purchasing titanium trousers, I quickly clocked on that children’s tights have to be as functional as they are fashionable. Playground proof and washing machine friendly, hosiery for little ones needs to withstand the climbing frame test, which is why I can’t champion our range of children’s tights more. 

From the small legs to the very small legs (even newborns), there’s a size for all ages, which makes keeping up with that ever expanding wardrobe a piece of cake.  For their very first pair, why not try a pair of cotton tights? The high cotton content in the Country Kids Warmer Cotton Tights ensures that they feel gorgeously soft against her skin, eliminating any irritation and most importantly, they’ll keep her warm! With 15 shades to choose from, there’s no risk of temper tantrums either when she starts to dress herself in the morning…

From their first pair to her first school party, glitter and sparkly tights will always go down a treat. Guaranteed to put a smile on her face, these are the perfect finishes touches to that outfit. The Country Kids Sparkly Tights come in a gorgeous black tone, with a subtle shimmer so chic that we want a pair ourselves! With a handy footless version available that you can layer under her boots for a snug fit, these are likely to fall into her ‘favourite pile’ every morning.

And for when she outgrows her obsession with all things pink? Although no mother wants to admit it, there will come a time when their little one will want to stretch their wings and with this comes experimenting with the latest trends. Whilst you may raise an eyebrow over some of her choices (whilst conveniently forgetting our teen fashion faux pas), add to her hosiery collection with a few on trend styles that will even fit you too, keeping your wardrobe happy in the process. For daughters that swoon over anything with hearts on, the Pamela Mann Candy Hearts Tights are just the ticket. Great for dressing up or down, the subtle but sweet pattern looks fab when worn with her converse, and just as gorgeous when you style it under your shift dress & heels.  The choice doesn’t just stop there either, as there are enough patterns, prints & colours to keep her content and out of your wardrobe – also known as her ‘one stop shop’ for new clothes…

So whether you’re after tights that will keep that smile on her face or you simply want to keep your little ones warm in the chilly temperatures, let them join in on the hosiery fun and give them a wardrobe to rival Mums!

Until next time…

Our Favourite Retro Looks

Nylons_backseamRetro style has never been more current, thanks to the various nods to the past by some of our favourite designers each season.  From swinging 60s to 20s opulence, make sure you’re making the most of your tights drawer with our favourite retro looks…

Coloured tights

For a swinging 60s look you can’t go wrong with bold coloured tights.  Choose shades of olive green, mustard yellow and rusty orange to get the 60s vibe.  Choose matte and ultra thick opaques or wool tights – think Velma from Scooby Doo geek chic.  Combine with print smocks, mini skirts and monochrome for a look worthy of the decade that brought us the Beatles, flower power and the summer of love.
