Top 3 Lady Gaga Hosiery Looks

Lady Gaga Patterned TightsWhether she’s wearing a meat dress or styling her hair as a button (yes really), Lady Gaga is certainly renowned for her eclectic taste. But did you know that she’s an avid hosiery wearer, constantly snapped in a selection of terrific tights? We’ve included here a list of her top 3 hosiery looks. Now whether you choose to match them with a dress made of bubbles à la Gaga is up to you!

1. Fishnets

Seen recently on the David Letterman with a leather jacket, black knickers, a black diamanté bra and brown fishnet tights, Lady Gaga emulated Madonna by wearing her underwear over her fishnet tights. Another time, inspired by that glamorous 20’s style, the Do What U Want singer teamed a girly lace blouse decorated with pearls, cream frilly pearl-adorned shorts along with nude fishnet tights. Lady Gaga was also snapped in a pair of black fishnets teamed with a spiky leather jacket and, well, black knickers, proving that this diva has a serious addiction to fishnets! Both times the Alejandro hitmaker showed off the sheer brief style of fishnets, showing off the fact that no matter how high your hemlines go, fishnets will never let you down by showing off reinforced material. To emulate Lady G’s sexy style we recommend the Levante Fishnet Tights, available in black, brown and nude styles.

2. Suspenders

Wearing a matching latex hat, bodysuit, and over knee boots, with a lace fan (why not?) and suspenders (yes, just suspenders and no stockings!) for a modern take on a classic look. For this saucy look in an instant why not match the Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights with a pair of knee high boots and some black city shorts (perhaps cotton is tad more practical than latex)! These 40/20 denier suspender tights have actually been spotted on Jessie J and Frankie from the Saturdays, too.

3. Patterned Tights

With marine blue hair, leopard-print platforms, a black lacy bra and a black and indigo blue jacket, Lady Gaga was on top form again when she was photographed in a pair of detailed fashion tights. For fun patterned tights that will make an impact like the Poker Face starlet’s pair choose the Pamela Mann Comic Strip Tights. Made in 60 denier, these fashion tights are brimming with fun imagery in bright colours, funky enough to impress Mother Monster herself and at a price that won’t break the bank – what’s not to love?

The perfect suspender belt!

Sultry and oh so stylish, suspender belts are the perfect way to inject a little old Hollywood glamour into your day. What?s more, the retro style can be worn secretly all day long underneath outfits, leaving you with a flirty spring in your step. J?adore! A lingerie drawer essential that peaked in popularity during the late 1950s, vintage enthusiasts What Katie Did have made it their mission to get the suspender belt firmly back into your daily routine.

But what makes the perfect suspender belt?

Forever here to advise us on all things retro inspired, founder Katie has compiled together a short video to help us make the right decision when choosing our belt. Broken down into three golden rules, be sure to keep them at the back of your mind when browsing their complete range that?s available on MyTights now…

First thing?s first, when it comes to choosing the fit of your belt, remember that it must fit on the waist. Along with creating a waspish waist that will keep others guessing, all good suspender belts will sit gently on the waist, as your hips will keep the belt in place and will prevent any sliding. You?ll soon find that highstreet versions won?t sit as neatly against the waist, but Katie advises us that this can be quickly fixed by going down a size or even adding a few stitches to ?take it in?. If customisation isn?t your cup of tea, fear not. The Maitresse Suspender Belt from What Katie Did fits perfectly against your waist and glides across hips for a snug yet secure fit.

Keen fans of the What Katie Did collection will quickly realise that all the belts (and even the girdle) come with six stocking straps, instead of the traditional four. Traditionally in the 40s and 50s, these straps used to be longer in length, leaving less distance between the bottom of the belt and the tops of the stockings. This limits the movement of the stockings when you walk, working to keep designs straight and your hosiery firmly in place. Over time, these straps have become shorter as the width of belts narrow. Aware that peace of mind is a must if you?re going to commit to the suspender style, Katie and her team of designers have done away with the traditional number of straps instead adding an additional two. Farewell twisted seams! As mentioned earlier, all What Katie Did garments feature these extra straps, so to get the full benefit, add the Maitresse Narrow Suspender Belt to your collection.

It?s the little details that count ladies! Showing us that the devil is in the detail, fabulous Katie explained that all clips need to be metal if you want your stockings to stay straight and in place. But before you throw out all existing suspender belts, take note! Some clips may very well be metal, but any metal clips coated in powder or nylon may have a different appearance. With highstreet versions, some clips may feature sliders which work to grip stockings. However, all clips from What Katie Did use special ?teeth? (don?t worry, these are barely noticable!) to grip the fabric and keep everything in place. To witness this up close, treat your lingerie drawer to the Harlow Suspender Belt and team with the Falke Seidenglatt 15 Stockings to perfect that sultry siren look.

Laura’s choice – thigh’s the limit

As pretty as they are practical, it’s no wonder why stockings and hold ups have been a household favourite throughout the decades. Synonymous with old fashioned glamour and recognisable symbols of seduction, both styles have dressed legs for as long as our grandmothers can remember. Taking centre stage after the invention of nifty nylon, women were rarely seen without a pair on. Originally created for ‘the women who don’t want to wear trousers’, it  seems that the thigh high hosiery has now made it into the drawers of most, establishing themselves as a chic and everyday alternative to sheers & opaques.

Wolford Individual 10 Stockings

From patterned to plain, high drama to barely there, there’s a pair of stockings or hold ups for just about every occasion. Admittedly I tend to rely on tights for my journey to and from work on my bike (however I have mastered the tricky combination of heels and cycling!), but that’s not to say I haven’t picked up a few hints & tips along the way.

Not just for Valentine’s Day, stockings have fast become a work wear staple, offering complete freedom of movement despite that  hectic schedule. A rare memento of a glamorous time gone by, it is often said that stockings are the easiest way to inject a little playful fun into an otherwise understated outfit. Of course decision making is hindered by the fact that suspender belts now come in every colour imaginable, but when it comes to stockings, the classic vs contemporary divide makes life a little easier. If you consider Kate Middleton and Angelina Jolie your style saviours (sweeping Jolie’s blood pendant phase under the rug), then it’s clear that you’re an enthusiast of all things elegant. Well versed in everything that’s sophisticated, Wolford have perfected the classic stocking style, keeping aesthetics simple and fabrics luxurious. A shining example of everyday hosiery done well, the Individual 10 Stockings are just crying out to be worn underneath pencil skirts and shift dresses. Made in two versatile shades, these are guaranteed to last you throughout the year, adding a touch of effortless chic with every step.

And from the demure to the daring….If you adore a more risqué style and are no stranger to experimenting with your hosiery, then it seems that the Jive Seamed Stockings from Pamela Mann are for you. Packed full of flirty retro charm and a flattering backseam, the sheer stockings are the ultimate finishing touches for that tea dress, with enough colour options to your wardrobe happy. For the adventurous, the postbox red is perfect for clocking up second glances, aching to be teamed with polka dots and peep toes.Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Hold Ups

For those that are not a fan of fiddly belts and straps, the solution lies with hold ups. Not worlds apart from stockings, hold ups still climb thigh high but instead of detachable straps, grippy bands of silicone are neatly tucked away inside the tops. Avid readers of Laura’s Choice will not be surprised to learn that the Falke Shelina Hold Ups come out on top when it comes to my favoured hold ups. As the younger sister of the popular (and my favourite) Shelina Tights, the hold ups certainly do not disappoint. Created from the same elastic free fabric and delivering the same barely there look, the lightweight hold ups are a must have for those wanting to fake that sun kissed look. With no need for your passport, you can cheat your way to that Monte Carlo glow in seconds. And with five dermatologically tested shades to choose from, no legs shall be left behind! Just as good and available in a colour for every day of the week, the Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Hold Ups are perfect for both work and play. With seven different shades to treat your legs to, getting dressed in the morning has never been so simple. Made from a lightweight 15 denier, you’ll discover that just about every occasion and social engagement has been covered. Looking to stock up on autumnal colours now? Go for the warm brown or flattering navy. Want to fake an even and blemish free skin tone? Experiment with the nude tones available to discover the perfect match.

Preparing for your wedding this summer? Avoid forgetting your bridal hosiery and make sure that the Athena Bridal Hold Ups from Trasparenze are your ‘something new’. Great for adding an extra special finishing touch to your dress, the hold ups boast a pretty lace top for even more feminine charm. With a pure white or creamy nude shade to choose from, that walk down the aisle will never look so fab!

So whether it’s a special occasion in your social diary or you’re craving a gorgeous alternative to those tired sheers, be sure to venture into all things thigh high for an instant leg pick me up.

Until next time ladies…

Laura
