Taylor Momsen And The Wet Look

article-2442648-187F30B800000578-101_634x930You might remember Taylor Momsen on the American teen drama Gossip Girl, where she played a darling young school girl – an image she has very successfully shed. The actress-turned-rockstar was in Houston recently,?rocking on stage as lead vocals of her band The Pretty Reckless. Rising quickly to stardom, this is the band’s third headlining tour and have already supported many popular figures in the goth-rock world like Marilyn Manson.

Known for her strong vocals, the songstress put on quite a show in Houston – and made quite a bold fashion choice as well! Momsen’s edgy fashion sense helped her pull off her wet look footless tights effortlessly, pairing it with a black tank top and black knee-high boots. I just love the trendy touch that the leggings added to her dark outfit. She’s not the first to be caught in these statement-making tights, however. All the top celebrities have worn the wet look, from the red-carpet to the after parties to the supermarket! Whether you’re eclectic like Lady Gaga or classy like Victoria Beckham, these leggings are versatile enough to work with almost anything.

If you’re looking to get Taylor Momsen’s look, the Pamela Mann Wet Look Leggings on MyTights are a great choice. You could even try to create your own look! They’ll be sure to make a statement no matter what event you wear them to!

The New Festival Fashion Tips: Your ultimate go-to guide

We’ve already brought you some of the hottest looks from this year’s Glasto, and now, with festival season already half way through, here is your definitive guide to the new festival fashion.  If you didn’t manage to get to Glastonbury or T in the Park this year, there are still loads to choose from, including the Big Chill and Bestival.  And even better, we’re here with the looks you need, whether you’re sitting in a muddy field or watching the coverage at home.

1. Do steal Beyonce’s style from that Glasto set.  Team gold sequins with black basics (may we suggest a dress rather than just pants if you’re planning on wearing it to the pub), and finish with nude fishnet tights.

2. Do adapt celeb looks for everyday wear.  Poppy Delevigne may be able to pull off bright red skinny fit trousers, but let’s face it, most of us can’t.  For a more wearable alternative, try red tights with a dark denim dress, or under denim hotpants à la Alexa Chung.  For style leaders, try this season’s bottle green.

3. DO match your accessories.  Florals are always a summer staple, and this year it’s all about the headwear.  Match yours to floral Pamela Mann tights for double the fashion points, but toughen up with a black leather jacket or army boots to avoid looking too cutesy.

4. DON’T be scared to try something new.  Love her or loathe her, Taylor Momsen’s legs looked fabulous during her set at T in the Park.  Get the same effect with some on-trend suspender tights, or make like Jessie J in some monochrome patterns.  Team with preppy basics for a great day-to-night look.

5. DO go for glam ankle socks if it’s too hot for tights.  Choose from a rainbow of colours and pair with shorts skirts and sandals: they’re so cheap, why not choose a few different colours and use them to transform any outfit?

Get The ‘Material Girl’ Look

Last night saw the launch party of the Material Girl Collection, a mother and daughter collaboration between Madonna and Lourdes. They were joined by Taylor Momsen who has been appointed as the face of the brand. The collection is aimed for teenagers with an attitude, which Taylor Momsen (of Gossip Girl fame) has plenty of!

good cause and effect essays

Taylor can normally be counted on to wear hosiery but this time it was the mother-daughter duo who ruled hosiery supreme. Lourdes attempted the layered look by pairing black sheer tights with thick vertical stripes running up the leg with a pair of thick, grey socks and ankle boots. Lourdes rocked the attitude fuelled outfit with a leather jacket and customised her tights by ripping them extensively. If you approve of this look and want to make it your own, these Pamela Mann Vertical Sheer Stripe Tights are your first port of call. The stripe patterned tights not only come in Classic Black, for Lourdes rock chick look, but also in Purple and Hot Pink. Opting for the Hot Pink shade will give your outfit a more high-colour, neon, punky look and with bright and bold colours an Autumn/Winter trend in ‘Dressing-Up Box’ chic and London Fashion Week designers loving neon colours for Spring/Summer11 you will be months ahead of the fashion pack in these pattern coloured tights!

Madonna wisely chose to keep her outfit understated, allowing her ambitious daughter to be the stylish one. The Queen of Pop wore black fishnet tights with an elegant black dress and heels. Her accessorizing gets a fashion thumbs up due to the layering of necklaces, waist-cinching belt and black fishnets. Here at MyTights we have over twenty fishnet tights, hold ups and stockings on offer and we are confident you will find what you are looking for! We recommend for all of you that are tummy conscious try these Spanx Control Top Fishnets that will tackle those problem areas; for a cheaper fix try Levante Fishnet Tights or alternatively for a fine net choose Falke Net Tights that will keep your fishnets elegantly discreet.

It’s a Lace Thing

ELLE Magazine Front Cover – September 2010

ellecover_jaWe knew that lace was back in style BIG TIME, from Edwardiana to the Gypsy Goth look, it’s been sneaking in everywhere. And we also knew that lace tights have been spotted on all the hottest trend-setters, from rock chic’s Peaches Geldoff, Taylor Momsen and Katy Perry, to the polished Olivia Palermo, Leighton Meester and Taylor Swift, and the uber-foxy Megan Fox, but then we saw this…

…Emily Blunt, when did you get so raunchy? The Devil Wears Prada star is just oozing sex appeal in this sensuous chiffon and lace combo. Looking like some sort of naughty Victorian courtesan, Blunt pulls this look off with effortless charm. Elle’s use of more mature contrasting colours, such as nude and black, has ensured that this outfit says both sexy and on-trend, rather than becoming trashy.

So, tossing the beautiful Ms Blunt aside for one second, the real star of the show is of course – drum roll please – Jonathan Aston’s Sweet Roses lace tights, as pictured this September cover of Elle Magazine. With their cut rose-inspired patterning they are elegant, individual, and above all oh-so feminine. Take a look at the whole of Jonathan Aston’s Vintage collection for lace hold ups and ankle socks too!

What’s so good about lace? I hear you cry. Well as much as your relationship with lace thus-far may have only gone as far as admiring your Grandma’s doilies’, or with the fussy bits on your bra – lace is actually a style classic. It’s a timeless way to add some delicate, and pretty charm to an outfit. But let’s not go mental, if you dress yourself in head-to-toe lace you will look like a cake.

Our tip for pulling this look off? JUST ADD A TOUCH, a pair of lovely lace tights with a little black dress is great, show a scandalous amount of leg while retaining your full dignity – perfect!

GET THE LOOK: LACE TIGHTS

Lace tights have been on the fashion radar for a few seasons now, but the eagle-eyed hosiery hunters here at MyTights HQ have noticed a full-scale celebrity obsession developing. From uptown girl Olivia Palermo to rock royalty Pixie Geldof, everyone’s in on it, so if you haven’t investigated lace legwear yet, here’s how to work it into your look.

Our latest drop of Henry Holland tights for Pretty Polly includes this incredible Lace Bodysuit, but you don’t have to have a Lady Gaga moment to make it work for you – it makes a brilliant on-trend base layer under shorts, skirts and dresses. Although if you are taking cues from Lady Gaga, be sure to invest in some Spanx to preserve your modesty and give you a sleek silhouette! If you’re not sure the bodysuit is for you, we’ve also got Henry Holland’s Lace Panel tights. Henry’s added serious edge to classic black lace hosiery with solid black panels down the front of the legs – think Gossip Girl’s Taylor Momsen, the actress and budding rock star who plays rebel Jenny Humphrey, and grunge them up with lace-up boots and a thigh-grazing mini.

At the other end of the Gossip Girl style spectrum ultra-polished Park Avenue princess Blair Waldorf, played by the gorgeous Leighton Meester, has been seen sporting a more demure take on the lace tights trend. Paired with a tailored coat and classic Mary-Jane heels, she takes the look from racy and rebellious to graceful and girly, and with these Pretty Polly Lace Tights, you can channel her Upper East Side style without breaking the bank. As Blair demonstrates, lace tights are a classic way to bring a touch of feminine charm to an otherwise prim ensemble, evoking the unmistakably French allure of iconic couture house Chanel – with a chic black pencil skirt and white blouse, lace tights will take you from desk to dinner date with elegance and ease.

Luckily, now that the weather is warming up, lace doesn’t have to be restricted to tights! Jonathan Aston’s Sweet Roses Anklets are just the thing for taking on another of spring’s big trends – socks with sandals. Unashamedly girly, these are perfect for daintily balancing out the chunky heels we’ve seen all over the catwalks. We think Alexa Chung, who was recently papped at Paris Fashion Week flashing her lace-top hold ups under her chunky coat, would wear these with her new favourite high-heeled clogs and denim shorts for a quirky off-duty look on sunny summer days.

So there you have it – whether you’re after rock chic, classic elegance or kooky cool, lace hosiery is the must-have item that you definitely need in your wardrobe!
