Laura’s Choice: Top Trends!

Now the fashion weeks have come to a close and we don’t find ourselves continually refreshing the websites of just about every fashion magazine in existence, we’ve taken some time to consider what the key trends are likely to be for the upcoming months. In typical MyTights style, we’ve gone one step further, not only highlighting the key trends but letting you know how you can recreate them at the drop of a hat. Just call us your very own personal shoppers…

Trend 1: Coloured Opaques

Pamela Mann 50D Tights

Pamela Mann 50D Tights

Coloured opaques were quite simply everywhere, from London to New York and even making a stopover in both Paris and Milan. It seems like the fashion world has gone crazy for coloured tights, and rightly so in our opinion. Capable of updating your look and reigniting your love for that dress you bought 5 years ago and have never worn, why stick to black?

Winner: Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights

There could only be one winner in this category for us. Forever finding their way on to our bestsellers list, these 50 denier tights come in no less than 20 beautiful colours, from classic shades of black and navy blue through to the delights of daffodil yellow. There really is no better way to make your outfits look good as new, and coming in at just £4.95 a pair, you’d have a hard time arguing against treating yourself to a pair of these.

Runner up: Falke Pure Matt 50D Tights

Coming in at a very close second place, German brand Falke have taken the trend for colour and added a luxury quality in a way that only Falke can. Available in seven colours and boasting a matte finish, they’ll stand the test of time and offer you a fun and colourful style day in, day out.

Trend 2: Fishnets

Trasparenze Rita Tights

Fishnets are never far from the top of my hosiery drawer, so I was thrilled to see them enjoying a ‘fashion moment’ on the catwalks. Whether worn on their own or layered over some funky coloured tights, nets are the perfect way to take your wardrobe favourites from drab to fab.

Winner: Trasparenze Rita Fishnet Tights

One of my must have hosiery styles, rarely a week goes by where I don’t pull on a pair of these fishnets. With a slightly larger net than would be considered traditional, they’re brilliant for layering over coloured tights or fashion styles and adding some sophistication to your look without giving too much away. I’m not ashamed to say I own a pair in every colour, and so should you!

Runner up: Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights

Landing in our offices just a few weeks back, the Jonathan Aston Oxygen Tights are perfect for those of you who like to stay on trend but create an individual look at the same time. Nobody could argue against these tights being net, but the art deco design and quirky look makes them a fashionistas dream.

Trend 3: Spots

Wolford Poppy Tights

Wolford Poppy Tights

We weren’t surprised in the slightest to see spots making their mark on the catwalks, having been the pattern of choice of the A-list for months. Decorating the legs of every single model at Diane von Furstenberg (New York) and Giles (London), dots are the best way to stay on trend while retaining an elegant look. I’ve fallen hook, line and sinker for them!

Winner: Wolford Poppy Tights

Incorporating hundreds of tiny dots but with a whimsical Wolford twist, these 20 denier tights are covered in asymmetrical spots that will send the double takes in your direction. With the spots being denser at the ankle and dispersing as they ascend up the leg, these fashion sheers succeed at being feminine yet funky.

Runner up: Oroblu Adelle Tights

More of a classic polkadot style and one I’ve worn countless times, these 10 denier tights have an all over dotty design that adds a delicate and charming touch to your wardrobe. Understated enough for work and stylish enough for a night out, take your pick between black and navy blue.



Trend 4: Wet Look

Trasparenze Callophrys Leggings

Trasparenze Callophrys Leggings

As much as we’ve admired wet look styles over the years, they’ve never really had their big fashion break, sticking firmly in the wardrobes of the likes of Kate Moss. Until now that is! Even appearing at Saint-Laurent and dressing the legs of Beyonce in recent weeks, a vampy style awaits us all.

Winner: Trasparenze Callophrys Leggings

All the merits of a traditional legging but with a high shine finish to enhance your glamour credentials, the lightweight finish and elastic waistband make them brilliantly comfortable to boot. Great with oversized tees and tunics, bringing out your inner rock chick has never been easier.

Runner up: Pamela Mann Wet Look Leggings

Made in a mock leather fabric, these ultra-shiny leggings are your go-to option for bring a grunge-glam twist to your look. Cut off at the ankle and far more comfortable than the skin-tight fit would suggest, pair them with a longline statement tee and heeled ankle boots.

Who knew being on trend could be this simple?

Until next time…

Maternity Tights: Fearne Cotton Shows Us How!

Fearne rocking her fab maternity style!

Fearne rocking her fab maternity style!

As far as women go, Fearne Cotton is one of our favourites. Announcing earlier this month that she’s leaving her post on Radio 1 after ten years in the hotseat, it’s taken us quite some time to come to terms with the revelation. What are we going to do without our daily dose of the DJ who puts the effortless into cool? However, it doesn’t look like Fearne’s about to drop off our radar any time soon, having been papped almost daily since her big revelation. Of course, we all know the reason behind her departure is a happy one – she’s pregnant with her second child! Good on you, Fearne! As well as continuing to showcase a quirky style, one thing we’ve noticed about her recent outfits is that each and every one of them has featured a pair of tights. While Fearne’s kept tight-lipped about when her due date is, we would imagine she’s treated herself to a few pairs of maternity tights to support her growing bump. As a high-profile celebrity mum to be, we thought this was a great excuse to round up some of our favourite maternity tights on offer at!

Now, it’s not uncommon for women to be slightly dubious about wearing maternity tights during their term, but you needn’t worry. Maternity tights are a completely safe option that boost comfort and provide some much needed support for your bump, particularly in the later stages of your pregnancy. Many of them are made with a panel that sits beneath the belly to reduce the pressure on your lower back. Made from nylon, maternity tights will grow and stretch as your baby does, so there’s no need to keep replacing as your bump grows outwards. If you like the idea of maternity tights, the good news is that have searched high and low across all of the leading brands for the very best styles. Often associated with being frumpy and unflattering, our selection will keep you bang on trend and make your expectant months a stylish affair.

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

1) Mama Spanx Maternity Tights - the ultimate in maternity tights from everyone’s favourite shapewear brand, these 20 denier tights have a high-waisted panel to offer you much-need support before your baby is born. Appearing like regular tights with their slight sheen finish, these maternity tights come with a special panel that sits beneath the tummy, offering support to the lower back and making you feel a little more confident about your growing frame. Smoothing over the bump in a completely safe way, choose between black and nude.

2) Trasparenze 20 Denier Maternity Tights – another 20 denier offering but a little more affordable than the Spanx tights, these maternity sheers are made with a stretchy and generous fabric that will expand with your growing sprog. Made using natural cotton to ensure you don’t overheat, the flat lying waistband will rest comfortably over your bump without showing through tighter clothing styles. Beats a pair of unflattering trousers, right?

3) Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights – great if your expectant months span across the winter, these 70 denier maternity tights offer a similar support but with a thicker denier to keep you feeling lovely and snug. Coming in three colours and made with a cotton/Lycra composition, they have a great amount of stretch to accommodate your bump and make these precious months extra special.

Giving you more time to put your feet up and relax!

Rihanna Shows Us All How To Style Ankle Socks!

We’ve been hooked on Rihanna ever since she brought Umbrella to our airwaves way back in 2007. Altogether now… ella, ella, ella, eh. No? Okay. Continuing to assert her presence not only on the music world but the fashion, she truly is one of a kind. Sure, she might get it wrong sometimes. For instance, this week she was spotted wearing socks and sandals, but it doesn’t matter when she pulls outfits like the below out of the bag!


Style perfection!

Style perfection!

 Having been announced as the new face of cosmetic brand Dior (and being the first black woman ever to take the accolade, FYI), Rihanna was this week photographed at the premiere of her new animated movie Home in a cute as a button teal dress with a cute bow print. Accessorising with a matching jacket, pointed teal heels and black ankle socks, Rihanna showed everyone how to look great without falling foul to an OTT look. For us, the star of her outfit was her socks, working to dress down the ensemble and give off a flirty edge that was perfect for the relatively low key premiere. Are you crushing on her socks? Each and every one of us can recreate it, and even better, at an affordable price!

Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks

Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks

To copy her look to perfection, look no further than the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Nero. We’re sure Rihanna spent a whole lot more on hers, but these opaque ankle highs are near on identical, and will set you back just £3.85 a pair. What reason could you possibly have to say no?  If patterned dresses aren’t for you, how about running Rihanna’s look upside down with a plain dress and pair of patterned socks? The ideal way to do this is with the Jonathan Aston Illusion Socks! Made with thin diagonal monochrome stripes that meet in the middle to create a chevron effect, they’ll look great with killer heels and a black skater dress.

Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets

Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets

New to SS15, another one of our favourite styles are the Jonathan Aston Crystal Socks, which are perfect if your outfits are lacking a little in the personality department. With their ribbed finish, the satin bow at ankle height is perfect for giving your outfits an on-trend look (if it’s good enough for Rihanna…) Feeling romantic? Opt for the Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets, with their chic sheer base and mix of opaque love hearts. Not only giving your outfit a super-cute twist but also seen on fellow fashionista Fearne Cotton, we love to wear ours with black party dresses!

Keep up the good work, RiRi!

Retro Perfection: Emma Roberts in Knee Highs

Emma Roberts rocking 70's chic!

Emma Roberts rocking 70′s chic!

Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs

Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs

Being the niece of Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts was always destined for big things. Emerging in recent years as one of the brightest young stars in Hollywood, it appears like the 24 year old actress knows a thing or two about style, too. Being papped this week on set of her new television series Scream Queens, Emma looked fabulous in a retro inspired outfit, comprising a faux fur jacket, white blouse, dogtooth skirt and gorgeous blush pink knee high socks. Sure, she has the wardrobe department to thank for her old school look, but Roberts pulled it off with panache.

Now, of course most of our attention focused on her socks, and what a pair they are! Finishing just below the knee and coming with a fashion-forward ribbed design, they added a sweet, flirty appeal to her look and made her look as if she was straight out of the 1970’s (and we mean that in a good way!)

What do you think about her socks? If you like them as much as us, the good news is that it couldn’t be easier to follow in Emma’s star studded footsteps. Here’s how you can recreate her look…

1) Perhaps the closest way to rival Emma’s look would be with the Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs. Also coming with a chic ribbed design, these opaque socks come in both black and a deep burgundy shade, proving the perfect accessory to retro swing dresses and 70’s patterns. Emma Roberts who?!

2) If the blush pink shade of Emma’s socks appealed to you, opt for the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks in Rosa. A gorgeous soft pink colour, these 70 denier socks are actually available in 18 additional colours. Something to match every look, stocking up on these wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world…

Charnos Chevron & Diamond Knee Highs

Charnos Chevron & Diamond Knee Highs

3) Retro fashion is all about jazzy patterns, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with the Charnos Chevron & Diamond Knee Highs (2pp). Two pairs of sheer knee high socks, with one boasting a 70’s-esque chevron design and the other a stylish diamond; the hardest part will be choosing which pair to wear!

4) Take a walk on the wild side in the gorgeous Pretty Polly Animal & Stripe Knee Highs. What you’ll get here is one pair of sheer knee highs in a classic stripe and the other boasting a retro animal print. Great with flirty hemlines!

We look forward to the series if this style is anything to go by!

How To Own Ankle Socks!

Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks

It’s that time of the year again where we can begin to get excited about our spring wardrobes. If you’re struggling for inspiration, MyTights is here to let you in on a little secret that’s making its way through the fashion world of late. The secret in question: ankle socks!

There are quite a few different ways to go about the look, but let’s first talk basics. We all have those heels we love to drool over in our wardrobe, but don’t dare wear for the sake of our poor feet. Well the time has come to strap on your tallest stilettos ladies! With a pair of solid Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks, or Trasparenze Marta 70D Ankle Socks, you can strut your stuff with both comfort and style. This trend setter shows us how you can make the spring time look complete – team your socks with a matching cardigan and a cute summer dress to nail the trend.

Jonathan Aston Delight Anklets

Feeling trendy? Lace up a pair of short combat boots and let the Jonathan Aston Buttercup Socks play peak-a-boo over the top. These cute ribbed socks with a top stripe give your outfit great texture and add an extra dimension to your look.

You can also use ankle socks to perfect your date night outfit. Go for the Falke Shelina Anklet socks to pull off that chic and sheer appeal. This classic look will be sure to get a second look in your direction. Looking for a classy pattern? The Jonathan Aston Delight Anklets are the perfect key to the luxurious look, with their flock floral sheer base and soft scalloped edge. Flawless date night outfit? Tick!


Wolford Leonie Socks

Wolford Leonie Socks

Another pattern that makes our hearts throb is the Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklet. These anklets are perfect for a day strolling around the shops with their classy yet fun vibe. If you’re more of a polka dot kind of girl, opt for the Wolford Leonie Socks, with their playful mix of large polkadots against an elegant 15 denier base.

From the cosy in cotton look to a look that will make heads turn and hearts stop, ankle socks will make you the talk of the town. Be sure to check our entire collection of ankle socks before you leave!

Laura’s Choice: SS15 Fashion Top Picks!

To most other people, the turn of a new season means little more than a slight change in the weather (if we’re lucky!) For the team at MyTights however, with a new season comes an abundance of fabulous new hosiery making its way into our office. Welcome to SS15! With some of our gorgeous new collections already available on the website and plenty more to come in the upcoming weeks, what better way to get you excited for the warmer weather than with my top fashion picks for spring?! Okay, so it might not be toasty enough just yet to pack away our opaques for good, but it’s certainly heading in the right direction. Expect florals, nets and geometric glory – here’s a first look at what we’re all going to be wearing across the next few months…

Jonathan Aston

Jonathan Aston Magma Tights!

Jonathan Aston Magma Tights!

Of all the brands we stock, the new collections from British label Jonathan Aston are always amongst the most anticipated. Always keeping one eye on the catwalk, Jonathan Aston have a real knack for bringing the hottest trends into your hosiery drawer, and more importantly, at an affordable price. Good news – the SS15 range has followed suit! If you’re something of an old romantic, head towards the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Tights. No need to pick away at the petals anymore, these 15 denier tights are covered in a realistic handwritten scrawl spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ game. The guaranteed way to get admirers falling at your feet! For something a little more subtle, charm the socks off anyone who crosses your path in the Jonathan Aston Sweet Memory Tights. With their symmetrical floral print, these fashion sheers take sweet style to the next level, proving the perfect addition to your summer dress with their nude base and sandal toe.

From classic florals through to fashion-forward geometrics, I’m a real fan of the Jonathan Aston Magma Tights (that’s me in them on the left!) A far cry from your average sheer, these 15 denier tights are covered in opaque blocks and rectangles, coming together to give any ensemble a striking twist and hand you the fashion limelight. I’ve worn them a handful of times in recent weeks, and each time I’ve been complimented on how great they look, so they come highly recommended. Sticking with the style statement theme, the next new addition I’d like to introduce you to is the Jonathan Aston Crystal Socks. Made in a chic silvery-grey shade, what will immediately strike you about these ribbed fashion socks is the gorgeous satin bow at ankle height. Ideal for adding the je ne sais quoi your summer basics need, they’ll look just fabulous with a skater dress and sweet ballet flats.




Wolford Josephina Tights

It’s always a joy to bring you the latest releases from high-end Austrian label Wolford. What I love about this brand in particular is that they’re capable of taking a classic style and revamping it in a way that only Wolford can. Almost by magic, their newest additions do just that! Focusing first on the beautiful Wolford Josephina Tights, these fashion sheers look just like an ordinary pair of sheer tights at first glance. Turn to the side however and you’ll reveal a stunning quilted seam running along the outside leg. Not content with just elongating your legs, the quirky seam adds a real decorative touch to your look… unmistakeably Wolford!

If, like us, you’ve been following the recent AW15 fashion weeks, you’ll have noticed the wealth of wet look styles treading the boards of the runway. Appearing this week at the acclaimed Saint-Laurent Paris show, you can mirror the en vogue look with the Wolford Estella Leggings. A real investment piece, these skin-tight leggings are bound to bring out your inner rock chick, not only wowing with their high shine finish, but also coming with an unusual seam at the knee for yet more appeal.



Trasparenze Spindasis Footlet

Not familiar with Trasparenze? Famous for their stand-out pieces as well as their timeless basics, the SS15 collection from the quality Italian label certainly doesn’t disappoint. From fashion socks through to classic leggings, there really is something for each and every one of us to indulge in. One of my personal highlights of the new range is the Trasparenze Fluture Socks. Ankle high sheers scattered with a ‘butter wouldn’t melt’ rose detail, they’re the perfect way to kickstart your summer style and update your old classics. One of the best things about the warmer weather is getting to wear those cute flats you banished to the back of your wardrobe last September again. Anyone who wears ballet pumps and court shoes regularly will know that they are prone to rubbing, which is where the Trasparenze Spindasis Footlets come into their own. With all the qualities of a traditional foot liner, what’s brilliant about these is that they’re actually made from floral net, so as well as protecting your feet from sores, they’re also a fully fledged accessory in their own right!

It’s not only funky styles on offer either – the range also caters for those of you who love a quality basic. Enter the Trasparenze Honeymoon Leggings, with their matte finish, choice of three colours and timeless design. The perfect way to bolster your hosiery capsule, these are the leggings you need to get you through the chillier spring/summer days. Tunics, dresses and longline tees, they really will work with anything! If you love the look of suspender tights but can deal without the hassle, I’d be doing you a disservice if I didn’t point you in the direction of the Trasparenze Pafia Tights. With the leg itself combining fashionable spots and diamonds, at stay up height you’ll find a chic floral band, resembling stockings and coming with a matching panty to create the illusion of sultry suspenders. Who knew THAT much style could be packed into a single pair of tights?



Charnos Geo Spot Tights

Last but not least, I’d like to introduce you to the two latest offerings from British brand Charnos. Similar to the Trasparenze Pafia Tights in that they incorporate both diamonds and spots, the Charnos Geo Spot Tights will send your style credentials through the roof. Suitable to be worn both at the office and at the bar, they also come with a boxer brief to protect the most vulnerable area of the tights. From one summer must-have to another, the final product in my list is the Charnos Lacey Stripe Tights. Lace will forever be on-trend, so you can rest assured these 20 denier tights will remain fixture of your look for seasons to come. With floral lace panels descending down the leg in vertical style, these are perfect for giving your party wardrobe that push it needs.

With plenty more new lines planned to be launched onto the website in weeks to come, I suggest you watch this space!

Until next time…

Seen MyTights in the press recently?

READ ALL ABOUT IT! That’s right, MyTights have been featured all over the press in recent weeks. It seems it’s not just us who adore gorgeous hosiery – everyone’s going crazy for it! Here’s our round up of our favourite features…

The Sunday Mirror – a recent editorial by The Sunday Mirror featured not one but TWO of our fabulous opaque tights. With the article focusing on the popular heritage trend (which we love FYI), the stylists teamed our very own Aristoc 80D Opaque Tights in Black with a tartan check shirt, black skirt and mustard yellow coat. We adored this look – the Aristoc tights were the perfect way to mute the bright colours and busy prints. If that wasn’t enough, the same article also featured one of the bestselling styles at MyTights in the shape of the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights. Opting for the stylish damson shade, these coloured tights were teamed with a ribbed burgundy dress and thick green tartan overcoat.

Sunday Mirror press


OK Magazine - It’s not just The Sunday Mirror who are loving MyTights’ hosiery either, with glossy monthly OK Magazine recently including the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Bianco into one of their looks. These are always popular with the press, and it’s easy to see why. Capable of adding some sweet appeal to any look, this particular editorial paired them with a silky cocktail dress and red heels – fit for Dorothy herself!

OK press


Bridesour next press feature comes from high-end bridal magazine Brides, who teamed our Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights in Wool White with a stunning white satin dress and embellished cape. Okay…so we might not wear wool tights on our wedding day personally, but nobody could deny just how fab these tights are, full of winter charm and locking out the cold.

Laura’s Choice: Mother’s Day Gift Guide

Mums – where would we be without them? No matter what we’ve put them through over the years, they’ve always been there. Be it toddler tantrums, our first day at school, picking us up from parties when we’ve had one too many or simply being on hand to offer us a shoulder to cry on, we really have put them through the mill. While we should show them just how much they mean to us on a daily basis, Mother’s Day is that one day a year when they deserve the extra special treatment. But this year, instead of opting for the traditional (and slightly boring) combination of flowers and chocolate, how about treating them to some gorgeous new hosiery? Something they’ll appreciate for seasons to come, we think it makes for the perfect gift. Not sure where to start? The MyTights team have been busily compiling our list of brilliant Mother’s Day presents to suit every need. Just call us your very own gift gurus…

Brrrrrilliant winter warmers

Falke Warm Deluxe Tights

Falke Warm Deluxe Tights

The calendar might state its March, but it sure doesn’t feel like it! While January and February are out of the way, the winter weather is still rearing its ugly head, with forecasters predicting temperatures this month will be well below the average. So why not give your lovely mum’s some snug hosiery to keep them going until spring FINALLY breaks through? The best on the market are without doubt the Falke Warm Deluxe Tights. We were excited about these as soon as we heard through the grapevine that they were being developed last year, and they did anything but disappoint. Taking advantage of the latest soft plush techniques, these 80 denier tights are designed to conserve every last bit of heat… it’s fair to say I was hooked as soon as I pulled them on! Great for giving your legs instant warming relief on those chilly mornings, they also come in 7 colours if your mum fancies herself as a bit of a fashionista.

If you like the idea of treating her to some cosiness but your budget doesn’t quite stretch to these, a fantastic alternative are the Pretty Polly 200D Fleecy Opaque Thermal Tights. Mega thick opaque tights with a top secret brushed fleece lining, the best thing about these is that they’re packed full of thermal qualities while appearing just a standard pair of thick opaques. And at just £9.95 a pair, you’ll have some spare pennies to treat her to a Mother’s Day meal! Control top tights are an excellent way to get your mum feeling her best and give her an extra dose of body confidence. Part of the bestselling Bodytoners range, the Aristoc Bodytoners Opaque Toner Tights appear just like a standard pair of 60 denier tights, albeit with a velvety soft finish that moisturises your legs during wear. Working on the most common problem zones, her social life is bound to go through the roof now she has these in her repertoire!


Super socks!

As the old saying goes, you can never have enough socks! In the past, it may have been the case that your mums might bemoan receiving a pair of socks as a gift… but she obviously hadn’t seen the selection at! Aside from their obvious practical uses, socks are the perfect way to add that last splash of style to your look. Brand new for SS15, the Trasparenze Fluture Socks are bound to be right up her street. Sheer ankle socks scattered with a dainty rose print, she’ll love how these transform her basic dresses and skirts, and even better, they won’t break your bank either.

Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks

Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks

If she’s never seen without a bit of sparkle, treat her to the Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks. Made in an attractive pellerine design and in two colours, these fashion socks have a chic metallic thread running throughout… much more than just a standard pair of socks! With spring on the horizon, it won’t be too long before your mum starts to give her ballet pumps and court shoes an outing, which is why the timing of the Trasparenze Spindasis Footlets couldn’t have been better. Another new addition, these foot liners have all the basic properties of a reliable footlet, the only difference being this particular pair have enough style to be an outfit accessory in their own right. How, you might ask? Well they happen to be made with a sumptuous floral net that will decorate your feet to perfection.

From the summery to the cosy, no list of Mother’s Day gifts would be complete without the Falke Cuddle Pads. Arriving on your doorstep in its attractive gift box, these slipper socks are as cuddly as the name would suggest, being made from a wool and cotton blend and coming with an anti-slip sole to make them wooden floor proof!

One eye on the summer?

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Okay, so it might be a little too cold at the moment to envisage packing away our opaques for another year, but there’s nothing wrong with looking ahead to the summer. Make sure your mum is fully prepared to nail a summery style with the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights. The closest thing to a bare leg look without bare legs themselves, Aristoc have utilised LYCRA® Fusion technology to ensure all the appeal of a natural look and the robustness of a thicker denier weight! In fact, these are so effective, you might just have a hard time convincing your friends that you’re wearing tights at all!

We often get requests around this time of year from women who are looking for tights that give their legs some coverage, but without the bulk or appearance of opaques. Ideal for covering up uneven skin tone or unsightly veins, the Wolford Neon 40 Tights are a real life hosiery hero. What’s special about these is that, despite their 40 denier construction, they actually have the appearance of 20 denier sheers. Providing your legs with a natural glow and covering up all your imperfections, they really do make for an amazing gift, regardless of whether you opt for classic black or one of the other 8 colours on offer.

Does your mum pride herself on her style choices? If the answer is yes, it goes without saying that she’ll want to keep up with the latest trends. You’d have to have been living under a rock to not have noticed the abundance of spots making their mark on the fashion world in recent months, so popular that they were the star of the show at Diane von Furstenberg’s latest New York Fashion Week collection. For a great pair, head to Pamela Mann and the Pamela Mann Sheer Dotty Tights, with their classic 20 denier leg and sweet spot print running throughout.

So, there we have it. Putting a smile on her face this year couldn’t be easier!

Until next time…
