GET THE LOOK: Selena Gomez in White Leggings

Selena Gomez

Selena Gomez

 

Why is that that everyone famous has a knack of being BFF’s? Our jealously aside, this week we were treated to snaps of popstar of the moment Taylor Swift stepping out Stateside with none other than Selena Gomez. Taylor certainly caught the media’s attention, wearing tiny denim hotpants with a rather contentious looking leather harness (what?!), a far cry from her usual ladylike style. But our eyes were firmly on Selena however, who showed us all just how versatile footless styles can be in the summer months. The 22 year old has certainly made some bad choices in the past, namely Justin Bieber, however she ticked all the style boxes here, by teaming her tired-up denim shirt and plimsoles with gorgeous white leggings. The perfect way to pull off a relaxed daytime vibe, it just so happens we have the perfect way to copy her look… of course we do!

Trasparenze Dorella Leggings

Available in a plethora of other colours as well as white, the Trasparenze Dorella Leggings are a must-have for any wardrobe, and you’ll no doubt turn to them time and again now the weather’s warming up. Made in a 70 denier for solid colour and reliable coverage, the leggings finish just above the ankle for a chic cropped look. Perfect for wearing with denim shirts, longline tees or tunics, finish off the look with a pair of summery sandals. Or if you’re after a bargain, try out the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights. Slighly thinner at a 50D, these are the perfect way to update your look at a fraction of the price!

Bad Blood, Great Style

Taylor Swift - Wolford Stella Tights

Taylor in her Stella Tights

She’s only gone and done it again! Of course, we’re referring to Taylor Swift, or as we like to call her, ‘the best dressed legs in showbiz’, who this week premiered the new video for her latest single Bad Blood. Not only music to our ears but for our eyes too, the video was packed full of A-list faces, visual effects and most importantly, Wolford hosiery! The luxury Austrian brand clearly holds a special place in Taylor’s heart, choosing not one but two styles from their fabulous collection. In typical MyTights fashion, we have everything you need to recreate the look, stocking both of the styles worn in the video. So while you might not have her millions in the bank, her musical talent or celebrity friends, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the same legwear look as Swifty herself…

 

Wolford Stella Tights

Geometric prints are everywhere at the moment, but if you needed any more excuses to try out the trend, follow Taylor’s lead and opt for the Wolford Stella Tights. These 20 denier sheers have a striking graphic side seam that runs up the leg and culminates in a chic sewn in band at stay up height. While Taylor glams hers up with a black mini, there’s no reason why they can’t be dressed down for the daytime, too. All you need is a pair of denim shorts and white long sleeved tee and you have a look that any pop princess would be proud of!

 

Taylor Swift - Wolford Individual 10 Stockings

And in the Individual 10 Stockings!

 

Not to be outdone, Taylor can also be spotted in the Wolford Individual 10 Stockings, which she paired with heeled boots and a skirt with a risqué front split. Packed full of the luxury features that Wolford customers are accustomed to, these silky soft stockings come with 6.5cm plain tops that gently hug your thighs without even a hint of pinching. Perfect with just about anything in your wardrobe and for any occasion, if they’re good enough for Taylor…

Try Out Stockings à la Madonna & Taylor Swift!

Madonna & Taylor in their fab stockings!

Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings

We love nothing more than when two of our favourite music stars join forces; it always makes for a brilliant pop song. Eminem and Rihanna, Nelly & Kelly, the list goes on. Now it’s the turn of none other than Madonna and Taylor Swift to set the airwaves alight and produce a new song that we’ll undoubtedly have in our heads for months to come. Performing their much anticipated single Ghost Town at the iHeartMusic Radio Awards, it seems that it’s not just musical talent that the pair have in common, with both the undisputed queen of pop and current golden girl Swift performing in matching stockings!

In her first public performance since THAT fall at the Brit Awards and opting to play it safe and sit on a stool (wise move!), Madonna layered her black stockings over a pair of trademark fishnets, finishing off her vampy look with knee high leather boots and a rather odd corseted outfit. Taylor’s outfit, on the other hand, was a slightly more classic affair, wearing her lovely lace top stockings with a sleeveless black dress and knee high lace up boots. Two very different looks with one thing in common, the performance confirmed exactly what we knew – stockings are back. Are you loving their legwear? If you are, MyTights.com have a fantastic array of stockings on offer, be it winter-warming opaques or racy fishnets, so there’s no reason why you can’t replicate it should you wish…

If it’s a classic pair of sheer stockings a la Taylor you’re after, a great place to start is with the Aristoc Sensuous 10D Lace Top Stockings. Near on identical to Swifty, the lace top adds instant glamour to your wardrobe, while the slight sheen finish is great for perfecting a polished evening look. Whether you follow Taylor’s lead and opt for an LBD or play it casual in a pair of denim shorts and statement tee, these are a fabulous (not to mention affordable) choice. Looking for something that’s a little more everyday? No problem, simply turn your attention to the brilliant Charnos Elegance Ultra Sheer Stockings, a case of the name speaking for itself, with their classic plain top and understated sheen. Great for the office, they’ll only set you back £6.25 a pair.

While we’d suggest accessorising your stockings with something a little more demure than Madonna herself, there’s no denying that her layered fishnet tights added some wow factor to her look. To mirror this, how about treating yourself to the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Stockings? All the sultry appeal of stockings but with a classic fishnet base to get everyone talking, there’s no easier way to give your simple evening wear an edgy twist!

Fallen hook, line and sinker for sultry stockings? Make sure you cast your eyes over our full range!

Taylor Swift: Our Hosiery Hero!

It’s no secret that the MyTights team have gone a little Taylor Swift crazy over the last few months. One look through this blog and you’ll be able to see just how much we adore her; she can’t put a foot wrong! Not only does she continually produce the catchiest of pop songs, she’s also a serious fashionista, in particular through her choice of legwear. Without doubt our biggest hosiery style crush, the best dressed legs in showbiz now come with a price, having been insured for a whopping £26 million pounds this week. To mark the occasion, we take a look back at some of her finest ensembles over the past few years and show you how you can copy her chic looks…

When Swifty did spots

Our eyes lit up when we saw these gorgeous spotty sheers from Taylor towards the end of 2014. Stepping out with a friend looking typically fresh and perfectly coiffed, Swift teamed her fashion tights with a pair of purple heels, simple black dress and gorgeous tweed overcoat. It goes without saying that we adored this look, so much so that we’ve been wearing polkadots ever since! Our favourites are the Pamela Mann Sheer Dotty Tights, with their choice of three colours and dainty dot design identical to Taylor’s herself!

Performing hit single Blank Space at the 2015 Brit Awards, the pop sensation teamed a fabulous tailored playsuit with heeled ankle boots and a pair of foxy fishnet tights. A far cry from her usual butter wouldn’t melt look, the classic fishnet design proved Swift can do sexy too! If you adored her look as much as us, the way to recreate it is with the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights. A classic pair of fishnets that will stand the test of time, these are the easiest way to add some sass into your wardrobe.

Brilliant burgundy!

We remember just how excited we were when we spotted Taylor in this adorable outfit last autumn. An electric blue tweed overcoat, mustard dress and gorgeous burgundy opaques – we were floored! Accessorising with a burgundy trilby and matching handbag, Taylor nailed the trend for block colours to a tee. The way to recreate this look? With the Aristoc 80D Opaque Tights! Available in a similar shade of burgundy to Swifty’s herself, these thick opaques are the perfect way to add some colour to your outfit. Follow Taylor’s lead and opt for a bright day dress and vibrant accessories.

Perhaps our favourite Taylor look to date, the 25 year old wowed us all when she stepped out after a shop of retail therapy this winter wearing this divine ensemble! A lace sweater, tartan shorts and fabulous striped sheers, she showed everyone how to work patterned tights. If this has tickled your fashion tastebuds, the way to copy her look is with the Charnos Stripe Mesh Tights. A near carbon copy of Taylor’s look, these are brilliant for updating your classics.

£26 million? Worth every penny!

The Brit Awards 2015: GET THE LOOK!

Taylor wowing the stage!

Taylor wowing the stage!

 The who’s-who of the music industry turned out in force on Wednesday night to celebrate all the amazing music that’s graced our airwaves over the last 12 months. With Sam Smith and Ed Sheeran deservedly being the biggest winners on the night, perhaps The Brit Awards 2015 will be best remembered for Madonna’s dramatic tumble off the stage. Ouch! That’s put us off wearing capes for life (like we would anyway.) While Madge’s mishap was definitely a talking point, another thing that caught our eye was the array of lovely legwear that adorned the pins of the music elite. Not only Madonna herself, but we also spotted Taylor Swift and Paloma Faith, who were both winners on the night FYI, accessorising their look with some fashion-forward hosiery.

It’s not only musical talent that Taylor and Madonna have in common, with both performing in a pair of vampy fishnet tights. Teaming hers with a sophisticated black playsuit, Taylor took to the stage in true fashionista style, finishing off her look with some leather heeled ankle boots. While we’re envious of Taylor’s never-ending pins, the good news is everyone can copy her look for undoubtedly a fraction of the price paid by Swifty herself.

Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights

Looking at least a decade younger than her 56 years, Madonna also wore fishnets as part of her sultry Matador get-up, pairing her legwear with high-waisted cropped trousers, blouse and that now infamous cape! To copy the star looks, the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights are ideal, and what’s more, are only £5 a pair – how’s that for value? For the more experimental amongst us, they also come in eight shades should you want to mix and match with some colour.

Award-winning Paloma in her ankle socks!

Moving on now to Best British Female Paloma Faith, we’ve long been a fan of her kooky style. Opting for a floor length number for the night itself, her after party attire saw her wearing a Peter Pan collar lace mini with quirky boots and chocolate brown ankle socks. Her sophisticated look was right up her street, particularly her socks, which added a sweet twist to her lace dress. 

Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks

 If you were a fan of her look, why not recreate it with the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Marrone. Brown not for you? They also come in 12 other colours…every colour of the rainbow in fact.

Taylor Swift in seams and spots: GET THE LOOK

 

Taylor Swift

Every inch the style superstar Taylor Swift

You’d have a hard time arguing against Taylor Swift being crowned the popstar of the moment. With new album 1989 selling more copies in three months than her previous (award winning, we should add) album Red has since its release in 2012, it’s fair to say that a lot of the media spotlight has been focused on Swift of late. Now, usually, with a baying mob of photographers following your every move, there would be occasions in which you look less than chic. Not Swifty, however! A big fan of using tights to enhance her look, she has an incredible ability to pull out endless perfectly styled outfits. Girl after our own heart!

This week’s look was no different, stepping out for a dinner date in a gorgeous vintage inspired ensemble. Covering up in a lovely camel coat, sweet clutch bag and heeled boots, all eyes were on Taylor’s fabulous fashion sheers, complete with pretty polkadots and a captivating striped seam along the outside leg. It comes as no surprise that we adored her legwear of choice, and we’ve been busily trying to recreate her look ever since…

Listen up; here’s how you can bring some vintage glamour even Taylor herself would be proud of to your own look…

 

 

Moulin Rouge High Heels Dotty Tights

Moulin Rouge High Heels Dotty Tights

Moulin Rouge High Heels Dotty Tights - amongst the sweetest tights we’ve ever laid our eyes on, these 15 denier fashion tights are the number one choice if you loved Taylor’s look! Complete with a similar polkadot pattern, these alluring tights are fit for the Parisian dancehouse itself, also boasting a gorgeous backseam and finished with a Cuban heel. Taylor Swift eat your heart out!

Pretty Polly Versatile Panelled Mesh Frontseam Tights – this time opting for a quirky front seam rather than an outside leg à la Taylor, these unique tights from Pretty Polly are made from a chic micromesh fabric. Not polkadots admittedly, but the mix of open net material and mesh adds an abundance of interest to your look. Pair with heeled brogues and a cut out skater dress if you really want to shine…

 With tights forming a key feature on Taylor’s look, we’re pretty confident she’ll be appearing here again in the not too distant future…

Wrap Up Warm à la Taylor Swift: Our Favourite Opaque Tights

With the launch of her hotly-anticipated new album 1989, and current single Shake It Off firmly stuck in our heads, it’s fair to say singing sensation Taylor Swift is the popstar of the moment right now. Not just capable of producing perfectly coiffed pop songs, Taylor is also something of a style icon, continually stepping out in chic ensembles and leaving us all with a hefty dose of wardrobe envy. This week, she was seen rehearsing for a performance on Good Morning America, wearing a tweed coat, suede ankle boots and super-stylish black mega-opaque tights. With chilly November now upon us, the MyTights team have also been pulling on our opaque tights to give our pins a little bit of added warmth on the early morning commute. With all of the choice available on MyTights, we thought it would be helpful to provide you with a guide a getting opaques right, and giving you some advice about finding the right pair for each occasion, wardrobe or budget.

Taylor Swift vs. Victoria Beckham – Who Wore It Best?

Victoria Beckham Wool

Both pop stars with a strong sense of style, one renowned for spreading “Girl Power” across the globe and the other for her many love songs based on real-life romances. Now the question that is on everyone’s lips is: which warbler has the best sense of style when it comes to wearing those charcoal opaque tights?

It takes courage to style opaque tights with strappy sandals, evoking images of the dreaded ‘socks and sandals’ style reserved for fashion victims, but La Beckham manages to make it work, much like Suki Waterhouse and her white opaque tights. Victoria gains fashion points in terms of her fashionable pleated skirt and stripe of shocking pink.

Back to black, Taylor Swift’s ensemble is also mainly classic noir except for the inclusion of those all important ash grey tights. Dressed in zipped up in a black tailored leather jacket, with matching skater skirt, leather ankle boots, umbrella and bag, Miss Swift shone in the rain.

Surely the best thing about both looks is that each is so easy to emulate being that they feature such staple pieces, so whichever one you prefer, stealing that style is a breeze – just use whatever you’ve already got in your wardrobe! The two outfits also demonstrate how to break up a solid black outfit in style. In terms of charcoal opaque tights, the world is your oyster, as there are practically 50 different shades of grey (sorry we couldn’t resist!).

Invest in a pair of the Wolford Velvet De Luxe 66 Tights in Anthracite (dark grey to non-colour aficionados) for opaque tights in 66 denier with a luxurious feel, matte finish, and applied plating technique ensuring that they will last and last. If your budget doesn’t match Victoria Beckham’s then take a look at the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights for a purse-friendly pair of opaque tights available in slate, a charcoal grey. Click on the link to take a peek at all our grey opaque tights.

As for the winner, we have to plump for Posh Spice this time. We love how she rocked those on-trend pleats and took a risk in terms of the open toed sandal shoe choice.  Victory for Victoria!

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!
