Hollywood Takes On Hosiery

Hollywood seems to be having a moment with hosiery it appears, as we’ve spotted two (not one but two!!) stunning starlets from the Hills parading their oh-so-beautiful tights.

First off was Emma Watson, featured in the October edition of Glamour magazine. We’re a big fan of the 22 year old in the office, from staple trenches to covetable bag arm candy, she clearly understands what works and what doesn’t work.

Judging by this shoot, the Harry Potter actress quite clearly does have style by the bucket load. Grown up glamour with a British edge is the theme as Emma teams a quirky tartan skirt and an Orient inspired patterned top with our Falke Fine Net Dots tights.

Available in black and in nude, the dainty tights prove that the spotty tights trend is here to stay. With Falke notorious for their high quality products, the silky tights made from fine micromesh certainly do not disappoint. What you can’t see though, and what is sadly hidden away under that pleated skirt is the lacy mock hold up design. Mid thigh, this fabulous design means that you have two trends in one pair of tights.

Make your outfit all about the spots like Emma, or team these beauties with a short hemline to get involved in the popular mock hold ups trend.

Next to inject more glamour into our day was Kristen Stewart. Hot property at the moment (perhaps for reasons other than

acting and fashion) the Twilight actress is in this month’s edition of Vogue. Proving to the world that she’s not fussed by the media scrum she’s been propelled

into, Stewart shows us how to work possibly the cutest trend ever with a gothic twist –

Positively vamping up our Jonathon Aston Sweet Rose Anklets, the 22 year old teams them with a pair of daring black hotpants, paying homage to the grunge trend that’s gracing magazine columns at the moment. With fierce red kitten heels, a graphic sweatshirt and dripping in vintage jewellery she gives the flirty ankle socks some serious attitude.

Make like Kristen and wear them with a bare leg to make them stand out or if you’re in the market for more leg coverage, team with skin coloured or black sheer tights? If they’re good enough for someone who went out with Robert Pattinson, then they’re good enough for us! Available in both black and white.

Fire & Ice: Falke in Vogue

Top hosiery brand Falke is in the August issue of Vogue, cementing its status as one of the most luxurious hosiery brands out there. The shoot features two prominent styles: Ice Queen Cool and Fiery Toughness… but which is your favourite and, more importantly, which will you be rocking?

Ice Ice Baby
Get Ice Queen style just like the model in the shoot with a crisp, clean pair of white tights such as the Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights. Complete with a frosty grey trench coat and blue dress, this look will be perfect for the winter months as you can layer whites, greys and icy blue to your heart’s content and look like the Snow Queen herself. This is easiest for pale-skinned blondes to pull off, but if you’ve got darker hair or skin it can work too – try lighter make up than you’d usually go for teamed with a dark purple lip and heavy brows to set it off.

Too hot to handle
The polar opposite of the wintery style, this look relies heavily on leather with a dash of sex appeal. Gone are the demure lace and subtly teasing cut out designs of last season and in is in-your-face sexy. The model teams a

long black leather coat with Falke black hold ups and, well, not much else. Accessories are sharp and scream power – fire engine red hair, long leather gloves and point stiletto courts (of course, if you don’t fancy a dye job you can always add a flash of red with your accessories instead). Although we’d recommend wearing some actual clothes (maybe a black shift), with a few tweaks this look is actually much more wearable than you’d think!
NB. Cute dogs are optional but desired.
So which is your favourite? Does the Russian-esque wintery vibe tickly your fancy? Or does the dog swing it for you? Whichever you love, you can be sure that a gift to yourself from Falke will make you feel a million dollars.

Henry Holland in Vogue!

The February Issue of Vogue may be slightly ahead of us with its Spring/Summer fashion shoots, but recently we’ve noticed bikinis and sunglasses creeping back onto the high street so we’ve decided to embrace it.  In fact, with the snow disrupting our travel and our house being colder than the inside of a fridge, pictures of blue skies and deckchairs are exactly what we need.

And THEN we spotted the Henry Holland Knee Highs nestling in between the couture clothes and high end jewellery!  At just £7.50 a pair, the socks aren’t exactly designer prices but the bold design from order generic cialis” target=”_blank”>Henry Holland has found favour with the fashion elite.

Available in pretty ice cream shades like pale pink and pastel green, they have a summery feel to them and will go perfectly with your Riviera chic this spring.  You could even try layering over nude sheer tights now for a warmer version of the look.  Knee highs can be tricky to wear if you are conscious of your calves looking bulky but the vertical stripe design on these balances them out for super flattering accessorising.

Team them with white basics if your dare or your spring pastel colours, and retro accessories like stack heels, oversized sunglasses and statement necklaces.  You can wear them as normal knee high socks or push them down Vogue style, but beware – these are not the kind of suntan marks you want to get.

It’s not often something this cheap gets the stamp of approval from a fashion giant like Vogue, so snap these up quickly for a burst of sunshine in your winter wardrobe.

X Marks the Spot

Sometimes, the fash pack realises that some trends are just too brilliant to only last one season. This season, polka dots are coming back to grace the fabric of clothes everywhere: meaning that at long last spots have joined the likes of florals and their much more famous sister, stripes, to gain status as a regular visitor to the catwalk. Seen on the AW catwalks at Marc Jacobs, Stella McCartney et al, dots are exploding back into fashion in time for the autumn. And they’re bigger (sometimes literally) and better than ever.
The look as a whole is sleeker and more refined- with the dots becoming more essential to the look as a whole rather than, as in previous years, being contained to one accessory or dress that seemed at odds with the rest of the outfit. Stella complemented a polka dot sheer panel dress with polka dot tights, and Marc Jacobs mixed spotted accessories with 40s glamour styling- fusing a blend of pretty blouses, pencil skirts and lace detailing with layers of polka dot accessories.


Pair with the colours of the season –autumnal hues like wines and rusts, and jewel brights- emeralds, purples and blues.

Pick larger spots for cute daytime looks, but choose little spots for a more elegant look – now polka dots are officially high fashion we can wear them in the evening and even to the office!

Previously it has been a no-no, but this season dare to be different – don’t be afraid to mix spots with spots.

Look magazine has taken inspiration and suggested a very wearable alternative, teaming Wolford’s Bonny Dots Tights with even more spots in head to toe black and keeping the bold touches to colour pop accessories and neon make up. However you wear them, make sure you stay right on trend and go dotty for dots this season.

Get the Look

Wolford Bonny Dots tights are the actual tights that Look magazine used in their shoot, and are the perfect balance between large and tiny spots- and for the extreme fashionistas among you, we have the same print in a hold up version!
If you love those but they’re a little out of your price range, try Pamela Mann Oversized Spot tights. Not only are they a cheaper alternative- they were featured in a Vogue shoot too!
Perfect for the office and an evening look, Gerbe Plumetis tights feature smaller dots so are great for a more elegant take on the trend, and ideal for those of you who want to try out the trend before you fully commit. (Again, if pay day is still a mere speck in the distance, look to Pamela Mann for some cheaper tights with small dots).
If you’re determined to do the whole shebang properly, layer these Pamela Mann socks over your tights à la Marc Jacobs – or wear alone in warmer weather for a summer introduction to autumn’s trend.
