Hosiery: This weeks looks!

Despite the sweltering temperatures we’ve been having, it hasn’t stopped the stars turning to hosiery to complete their looks. While we’d forgive anyone for going bare legged in the 35°C we endured this week, it seems that hosiery is still very much on the agenda, so we’ve rounded up our favourite styles from the last week, and shown you how you can recreate them in an instant.

Trasparenze Graphium Leggings

Trasparenze Graphium Leggings

Beginning with Hilary Duff, the 27 year actress come singer is slowly developing into a new hosiery hero for us, having already been snapped in fishnets just a few weeks back. Now for mere mortals, a day running errands usually means an altogether unflattering outfit, but not Hilary, who pulled out a fabulous pair of patterned leggings for a trip to the dry cleaners. Pairing her leggings with a statement tee, trainers and a fresh face, the look radiated effortless cool, and we loved how her leggings introduced geometric prints in to her outfit. Want to copy her look? A great option are the Trasparenze Graphium Leggings, with a colourful paisley print and choice of two colours. Perfect for wearing with summery vests and longline tees when the temperatures rise. But if you wanted something that makes even more of a statement, the Fleur De Lis Leggings from Pamela Mann are a must, with their flower of the lily print and slight sheen finish.

Now for a very different look from former fashion model Sophie Dahl, who last night turned out at the star studded Serpentine Gallery bash. With attendees including Kate Hudson, Lara Stone and Fearne Cotton, the crown for our style star went to Sophie, who teamed a sixties style spotty minidress with peep toe heeled boots and black fishnet tights. Giving her sweet dress a rock chick twist, mirror her look with the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights in black, opting for the brighter shades if you’re feeling experimental. Or for fishnets with a difference, check out the Oroblu April Tights, which combine an alluring side seam with tricot effect.

Stay tuned for more celeb looks!

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

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!

Laura’s Choice: Bare Leg Look!

Okay, so the sun might be hidden beneath some rather contentious looking clouds, but it’s definitely making an appearance. For the first time this year, it actually feels like summer. For most, this probably mean jugs of Pimms and underestimating your ability to burn, but at MyTights HQ it means something very different indeed: bare leg look hosiery, of course! Quite literally the way to every girl’s heart, bare leg look styles are a seriously stylish proposition of late. In fact, it was rumoured that Kate Middleton herself was wearing a pair on the steps of the Lindo Wing as she revealed Princess Charlotte to the world, although we hope for her sake they were hold ups rather than tights! Want to know more? Here’s why we love bare leg hosiery so much:

 

- They blend blemishes and imperfections, leaving your pins looking beautifully smooth and you feeling extra confident!
- No need to dig out the tanning mitt; they give legs a sunkissed glow and moisturised finish.
- For peep toe devotees, leg hosiery means you can wear strappy sandals and open toed footwear to your heart’s content.
- They provide some ever-so-slight coverage on chillier summer days (always a possibility!)

 

Can’t see the wood from the trees? Here’s our guide to bare leg look styles and how you can select the perfect pair for you.

Falke Shelina Tights

Falke Shelina Tights

Best for: an unbeatably natural look

When you’re on the lookout to add some bare leg styles to your drawer, it goes without saying that you’ll want to achieve the most natural finish possible. Cue the Falke Shelina Tights, otherwise known as my ‘can’t live without summer essentials’. I wear them all season long, and there really is nothing better on the market for giving your legs the flawless finish we all crave. 8 denier in appearance but deceptively strong (they use a 12 denier weave), they come in a plethora of skin tone shades, all of which have been specially adapted by dermatologists for the most natural look around. Who would argue with science? Another one of my favourites are the Pretty Polly Naturals 5D Sideria Tights, which utilise a bi-component Sideria yarn, meaning your tights will appear finer than their actual denier. Like the Shelina’s, they also come in a range of skin tone shades and also benefit from being just £6 a pair. No section of natural looking hosiery would be complete without the Charnos Simply Bare range. Available as a pair of 7 denier tights, a toeless equivalent and a pair of hold ups to boot, this 7 denier range gives a look that the Duchess of Cambridge herself would covet, without being a flash in the pan thanks to a 15 denier durability.

Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights

Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Tights

Best for: Darker Skin Tones

If there’s one thing that’s been neglected for far too long, it’s bare leg look styles for darker skin tones. Until this year, that is, when we became the very first online retailer to stock the Nubian Skin range. Fresh from media success including a mention by none other than Oprah Winfrey, Ade Hassan and her team have produced four true to skin shades designed specifically for women of colour. Available as a pair of 10 denier tights and hold ups, the range will provide your legs with a fabulously airbrushed look that you’ll adore. Or if you prefer to stick to the brands you know and love, you should also take a look at the Falke Shelina Tights in Noisette and Coffee, or the Oroblu Geo 8 Tights in Mandel, Dore and Bambi.

Best for: withstanding wear and tear

Summer can be expensive business. No longer do we stay confined to the house snuggling up by the radiator, it’s time to explore, socialise and be the jetsetter you’ve always dreamed of. So it makes sense to save some money where we can. One great way of doing that is to invest in bare leg hosiery that goes the extra mile, such as the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights for instance. Giving the same flawless look but with LYCRA® Fusion fibres to prevent any snags or catches from developing into ladders, these are a must for any frugal hosiery fans. On a similar note, another great choice are the Charnos Run Resist Sheer Hold Ups. Beautiful on the outside but tough on the inside, these 10 denier tights come in two skin tone shades and leave ladders as a thing of the past.

Best for: swanky events

From weddings to formal parties, if you’re lucky enough to be invited to a glitzy event, you’ll want your legs looking their best. When I feel like wearing something that’s a little luxurious, I never look past the range from Wolford, especially the newest member of their clan, the Transparency Tights. Packed full of quality craftsmanship and as natural as the name would suggest, at £12 a pair they’re also very reasonable for a pair of Wolford tights. Or if 10 denier is that little bit too thick for you, I’ve always been a fan of the Individual 5 Tights, which prove that paying that little bit extra can be beneficial in the long run!

Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights

Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights

Best for: sandals and peep toe enthusiasts

If you spent an hour last night painstakingly perfecting your pedicure, showing them off in a pair of toeless tights is a must. Toeless styles are ideal for giving you the same natural look but allowing you the possibility to wear your beloved strappy sandals and open toe shoes in the process. Available in five shades, my favourites are the Falke Shelina Toeless Tights, which now feature a handy toe loop to keep the tights in place no matter what. If you’re more inclined to wear a pair of hold ups, the same toeless style can be enjoyed in the hold up equivalent, too! Toeless styles are becoming increasingly popular nowadays, and all of our favourite bare leg ranges have taken note, so I’d also advise to check out the Pretty Polly Naturals 8D Open Toe Tights, Charnos Simply Bare 7D No Toes Tights and Trasparenze Tropea Toeless Tights before you leave.

Of course, it’s not always easier to know which colour will be the best match for you when buying hosiery online, so if you do have any questions or enquiries, please don’t hesitate to contact our customer services team who will be more than happy to assist.

Until next time…

Laura’s Choice: MyTights Socks Style File

MT Socks Style File!

MT Socks Style File!

 

Here at MyTights HQ, we’re lucky enough to get the first glimpse of all the latest hosiery styles, fresh from the production line of the leading brands in the legwear market. But with this week seeing the arrival of June, our attention has turned away from thicker opaques and onto hosiery that’s more appropriate for the warmer temperatures, namely socks!  A far cry from being an unwanted gift from a great great aunt twice removed (or something like that), socks are emerging as a real fashion staple. Affordable, great for every season and capable of updating your whole look in a matter of seconds, the MyTights.com team thought we’d let you in on our style secrets, and show you how we’ve been decorating our feet in recent weeks!

Trasparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks

Trasparenze Dora Wool Over Knee Socks

Beginning with Customer Service & Operations Manager Nikki, who teamed a pair of grey knee high socks with black leather boots, and a dark grey dress. This is a fabulous example of how to wear knee high socks in a professional setting. Allowing you to reveal some skin while keeping the lower half of your legs happy, take a look at the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto, rolled down for a similar look. Made with an impressive 65% cotton for a soft feel without overheating, these deliver everything you could possibly want in a knee high. Or if you’re feeling brave enough to branch out from the safety of black, white and grey, make a beeline for the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks, available in not one, not two, but 19 shades, from the basics all the way through to eye-catching hues of yellow and orange.

Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks

Next up we have Marketing Assistant Chantel who, armed with the knowledge that ankle socks are as popular as ever this season, opted for a fun summery ensemble. Pairing a floral pencil skirt with red Converses, for us the pièce de résistance are her frilly ankle socks, which are perfect for adding a girly touch to any look! For a similar style, opt for the Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Sock, with an embossed floral design, attractive lilac hue and most importantly, scallop effect tops for a sweet style fix. Prefer something with a little more pattern? Be sure to check out the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks, which are covered in a handwritten scroll, spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ dilemma!

Now, something for the men! You might not know that MyTights.com stock a fantastic selection of men’s socks as well as women, as demonstrated by both Warehouse Assistant Jack (left) and Content Assistant Jack (right). Opting for the quirky collection from popular Swedish brand Happy Socks, Jack mark one chose to wear Happy Socks Men’s Dot Socks with casual trainers, skinny jeans and a sweater, while Jack mark two shows that patterned socks can add a splash of fun to office wear, wearing his Happy Socks Men’s Big Dot Socks with smart trousers and a pair of black brogues. If you’re keen to snap up the entire Happy Socks collection, what better way to save some cash than treating yourself to the Happy Socks Men’s Sock Gift Box, containing four pairs of combed cotton patterned socks for just £25?!

Charnos 2PP Flower and Diamond Sock

Charnos 2PP Flower and Diamond Sock

Last but not least we have Graphic Designer Jade, again choosing to add some colour to her look with some geometric socks. Wearing her patterned gems with white jeans and camel desert boots, socks like this are ideal for adding an instant style hit to everyday wear. If you’re a fan, check out the Charnos range, in particular the Charnos 2pp Flower and Diamond Socks. With one pair boasting an edgy diamond print and the other a sweet floral motif, these are perfect for keeping your feet feeling refreshed no matter the weather. Your sock drawer has never looked so fashion-forward!

Whether you swear by ankle socks or can’t bear the thought of a day without knee highs, MyTights.com have it covered. You can find our entire sock selection here.

Until next time…

Trasparenze Cinzia Knee Highs, as worn by Jade from Little Mix!

If there’s one thing we know for sure, it’s that hosiery is seriously on trend at the moment. In fact, it’s so popular that rarely a day goes by where we’re not approached by the press for samples, whether for cover shoots, editorials or music videos. A while back, we were contacted by a stylist for Little Mix who was charged with shooting their video for much anticipated new single Black Magic. Always happy to help, we sent over a number of samples, and were thrilled to find out that one of our products was to be used in the video!

 

Little Mix (zoom in)

Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks

Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks

Posted on their official VEVO page this morning, the video sees the foursome try their hand at acting, beginning as geeky schoolgirls before being transformed into fashion-forward vixens, and it’s all thanks to, you guessed it… black magic! Music and wizardry aside, what stood out for us most were their fashion choices, in particular Jade, who was wearing the very pair of Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks we sent across all those months back. Opting for a sparkly red jumper, monochrome mini skirt and black heels, we may be biased, but we thought her flirty knee highs made for the perfect outfit accessory.

And it couldn’t be easier to mirror her look! Available in white à la Jade as well as 18 other shades, the Cinzia Knee Highs are ideal for this time of year, looking great whether teamed with 60’s style miniskirts, skater dresses or denim shorts. Most importantly, they come in at just £5.25 a pair – the most affordable celebrity style to date!

We have a feeling we’re going to be hearing an awful lot of this song in months to come…

Summer Staples: The MyTights way!

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights

 While the weather might be feeling a little Jekyll and Hyde of late, with next week comes the beginning of June, which means one thing – its summer! Finally, it’s time to relegate your opaques to the back of the drawer, stock up on the suncream and bask in the rays of summer heatwaves (we hope!) The key to owning a summer wardrobe to be proud of lies in stocking up on staple items that will ensure you always have something suitable for the occasion. Whether for sun-soaked holidays, garden parties or the obligatory Saturday afternoon BBQ, MyTights are on hand to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch!

 

 

Staple: Floral

Where: Garden parties, BBQs, nights out

Often considered to be the epitome of a summer style, floral prints are as big as ever this season, but MyTights being MyTights, we have everything you could possibly need. For a classic floral print, check out the Oroblu Elaine Tights, with a lace-like floral effect running across a tulle base. Or for something a little more quirky, you’ll adore the Jonathan Aston Instinctive Tights, with a striking side seam made up of brightly coloured floral motifs.

Where: Nights out, the office

Listen up: no summer wardrobe is complete without pair of nude fishnet tights! Whether worn with sweet summer dresses or even in the workplace, nude fishnets are perfect for adding some interest to an otherwise bland outfit and keeping you feeling refreshed. The Levante Fishnet Tights in Naturel are perfect, opting for the Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights if you prefer a smaller net.

Staple: Pastels

Where: Weekend lunches, picnics

What would summer be without pastel hues? From chic lemon through to pretty pink, pastel colours are everywhere this season, so it makes sense to stock up. For a plethora of pastel hues, check out the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights, or the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks.

Staple: Ankle Socks

When it comes to adding a finishing touch to your ballet pumps, we choose ankle socks every time.

Ankle Highs Trend: FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs

  

She might be dating one of the worlds most lusted after film stars in Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, but that hasn’t stopped FKA Twigs expressing how difficult it can be facing the wrath of his ‘Twi-hard’ legion of fans. Relationship woes aside, we’re really here to talk about her style! Stepping out this week with Rob on her arm, the Grammy nominated singer chose a typically quirky patterned number, chunky boots and black ankle socks peeking out of the top. While our attempts at the pattern trend may be a little more dressed down that the singer herself, we’re big fans of her ankle socks, which are perfect for this time of year. Fashion-forward, easy to wear and affordable, check out our cream of the crop below.

Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks

Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks

From petal pulling to style savvy, cast your eyes over the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks, covered in a handwritten script spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ game. Complete with scallop tops and available in two delightful spring shades, there’s nothing better for updating a bland outfit.

With polkadots as popular as they’ve ever been, make sure your sock drawer is right in the thick of it with the Charnos Spot Ankle Highs. Opaque ankle highs with satin effect spots running throughout, they come in three colours and look great with summer skirts and skater dresses.

For ankle socks devotees, grab a pair in every colour thanks to the Trasparenze Marta 70D Ankle Highs. From classic black to the vibrant height of turquoise blue, these 70 denier ankle highs are purse-friendly and ideal for racking up the style points every spring/summer.

Jonathan Aston Pretty Petal Socks

That’s what we call a shimmering success, Miley!

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus

Leaving her wrecking ball at home for the day, Miley Cyrus this week stepped out in a pair of tights that more than appealed to our inner magpie. While the 22 year old star usually finds herself at the top of the ‘worst dressed list’, she’s clearly been taking style advice from somewhere, mastering the trend for metallic with her gold sparkly tights. Okay, so we’re not so keen on the rest of her outfit. In fact we’d go as far as saying we hate it, but with legwear like that, who cares?! Perfect for parties and as seen on the likes of Alexa Chung, sparkly tights are enjoying a fashion moment of late, and in typical MyTights fashion, there’s no reason why anyone need miss out.

Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights

Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights

For a copycat look (minus that garish jacket, we hope), opt for the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights. Available in silver as well as gorgeous gold, these footless fancies were once spotted on the legs of Fearne Cotton herself, which comes as no surprise to us. Catching the light and a must have for the party season, you can also wear peep toe heels should you wish!

Iff something a little less dramatic is your preference, take a look at the Trasparenze Deejay Tights, covered in subtle metallic flecks. Admittedly not as eye catching as Miley’s, these semi opaque tights are understated enough to be worn in the day as well as the night. Or if you want to combine your adoration for all things polkadot with sparkle, the Pamela Mann Sparkly Gold Spot Tights are a must, covered in embellished spots that cover the entire leg. Who knew a glamorous look could cost under a tenner?

It’s not only tights that have been given the embellished treatment either. For a pair of razzle dazzle socks, we love the Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks, which have a lurex thread running throughout to gently catch the light as you strut your stuff.

Miley, you’re learning! Check out our entire range of sparkle and high shine hosiery before you leave.

Celebrities LOVE hosiery: Get The Look!

Just like waiting for a bus, we’ve been waiting days to spot another fabulous celebrity hosiery look, and then three come along at once! From other sides of the globe and all choosing to wear hosiery in their own individual way, we bring you a round-up of celebrity looks, and how YOU can recreate them at the drop of a hat.

Iggy Azalea

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Beginning with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, the 24 year old isn’t always known for her fashion choices, but that all changed this week when we laid eyes on these images, shot for a 100th birthday special of iconic underwear label Bonds. While we may not opt for an outfit quite so risqué, we fell hook, line and sinker for her grey over the knee socks. Boasting a classic ribbed design and with extra-wide black tops for a chic contrast, we think they look great with her heeled biker boots. What do you think? If you love her look as much as us, treat yourself to the Oroblu Lysette Over Knees, with the same ribbed finish and wide band. Or if you want to copy her look down to the colour, check out the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto!

 

Charlotte Crosby

Charlotte Crosby

Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings

From an internationally acclaimed rapper to everyones favourite George Shore hellraiser, we spotted Celebrity Big Brother winner Charlotte Crosby on the streets of London in a funky pair of patterned leggings. We love fashion leggings at MyTights – there really is nothing better for brightening up your basic pieces. Charlotte clearly agrees, teaming her marvel inspired leggings with an oversized jumper and white trainers. To get your hands on a similarly fun look, check out the Pamela Mann Fleur de Lis Leggings, covered in the fleur de lis prints for a regal feel. Or take things back to your childhood with the Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings, covered in an assortment of retro sweets that you can enjoy without having to worry about your figure.

 

Tallulah Willis

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Last but not least, we simply had to comment on this adorable look from Tallulah Willis. Having been raised by Demi Moore, the 21 year old was always going to know a thing or two about looking good, and this ensemble more than caught our eye. Bridging the gap between a dressed down vibe and statement appeal, she tucked a denim shirt with a suede skater skirt, finishing the look with sheer black tights and sparkly ankle socks. A stellar performance if we say so herself, recreate the look with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights and the Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks, a combination that’s bound to make you a style star. Or if ankle socks aren’t for you, layer the Pretty Polly Sparkle Rib Over The Knee Socks over your sheers for a similar shimmer.

 

We can’t keep up – it’s a hosiery takeover. Keep checking back for more celebrity looks soon!

Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights

As much as a life without our opaques doesn’t bear thinking about, we can’t help but thinking that it’s high time that we switched to a more summery alternative. Footloose and fancy free, footless tights are the perfect solution. Meaning you can seek solace from the chilly mornings and show off your summer sandals at the same time, footless tights are brilliant for pulling off a relaxed daytime vibe, or adding some effortless cool to your party looks. Finer than leggings and available in every colour of the rainbow, we’re here to let you in on all of our footless style secrets to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch…

The wallet warriors

At this time of year, most of us are busily saving for a last minute holiday in the sun, so it makes sense to save the pennies while we can. Proving that a fabulous footless style needn’t cost the earth, stocking up on the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights is a must. 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!

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!

Country Kids Capri Tights

Country Kids Capri Tights

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.
