This season let your accessories do the work for you and stay on trend easily with these handy tips…
Recently spotted on Suki Waterhouse, white tights aren’t for the faint-hearted, but when done correctly they look divine. For a splash of celeb style, follow Suki’s example and wear them with a pale pastel pink dress and platform sandals to get in on that “socks and sandals” trend. We recommend matching your pastel pieces with the Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights made from 70% wool and available in Bianco Lana, as these wool tights are both cosy and chic. For a purse-friendly version then plump for the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights available in a huge range of colours including white. Curvy ladies will love the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Plus Size Tights designed especially for voluptuous figures. Now we can confirm that it’s official: white tights are not just for children but essential for nailing that pastel trend.
It’s time to unleash your inner magpie and indulge in some serious glitter. Metallic tights and socks are the perfect way to embrace this trend without suffering from ‘shiny overload’. Get a sultry leg lengthening effect with the Moulin Rouge Metallic Seam Tights in 10 denier, from the front they look just like a normal pair of black sheer tights but as soon as you twirl round you can see their glittery line that travels up the back of both legs. If those fashion tights aren’t quite glittery enough for you, then check out the Jonathan Aston Lurex Anklet, full to the brim with gorgeous glitter. Style these stunning socks with flat pointed shoes and a full length lemon yellow coat.
What do we all think of when it comes to Spring/Summer, yes you guessed it: flowers. Give this pretty trend a more modern update with the Wolford Delia Tights in 20 denier with their floral take on polka dots. If you think lace is ace then you will adore the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Tights with their rose patterned design – these popular tights have been styled by Vogue no less, now if that won’t convince you I don’t know
Whether you’re a floral fan, metallic lover or adore all things white, we hope that we’ve helped you find your perfect pair of tights so that you can adopt those trends with panache.
Rocking those white opaque tights, the gorgeous model Suki Waterhouse has been spotted out and about with her bestie Cara Delevingne. Scoring full points in terms of style, there is no better way to celebrate spring than to put on your prettiest palest pastels and white opaques. Snapped at Karl Largerfield’s party, Suki Waterhouse teamed a sublime short pink dress with matching belt and subtle makeup while Cara Delevigne wore a monochrome suit.
Also seen at the London Fashion Week AW14, opaque tights/socks and sandals may bring to mind lobster-faced Brits on the beach, but Suki shows us how to make this controversial style work with her platform peep toe sandals. It’s official: fashionistas are loving the opaque tights and sandals look, so will you be joining in?
From socks and sandals to school uniform, Suki Waterhouse disproves any fashion critics who believe that white tights are for children. By crushing two fashion myths at the same time, Suki demonstrates with ease how we can embrace that pastel trend with panache.
To steal that hosiery style go for the Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights in classic white, these purse-friendly opaque tights are ideal for emulating this on-trend look. Voluptuous lovelies can shine in the leg limelight with the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Plus Size Tights available in white.
Alternatively if you fancy giving those pins some well deserved pampering we recommend opting for wool tights for a toasty warm way to show off your pastel ensembles (well it is spring in Britain after all). The Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights are available in ‘Bianco Lana (Cream)’ and feature a sheer to waist brief, perfect for wearing those Suki-style mini-dresses.
Show off your chic streak today and match one of the recommended opaque white tights above with a pale duck egg blue mini-dress and sherbet lemon open toe platform sandals.
After enduring yesterday what was, quite frankly, the most nail biting three hours and 27 minutes of Wimbledon so far, with Murray almost falling at the hands of Verdasco and being forced into a heroic comeback from 2 sets down, we SO hope we’re not tempting fate by writing this. But there’s no denying that the Championships have proven themselves to be a hotbed of fashion inspiration for us here at MyTights, with celebs such as Downton Abbey’s Laura Carmichael and Pippa Middleton already spotted throughout week 1 (not to mention Kim Sears, Andy’s always-chic girlfriend of 7 years) – and tons more famous faces expected over the next couple of days. And we quite simply wouldn’t be doing our job if we didn’t share with you the fashion inspiration we’ve gained from Wimbledon 2013 (we’re sure that checking the scores every 2 minutes also contributes, in its own way). So whether you take inspiration from the Wimbledon Whites on show or go red, white and blue to show your support for the man who’s brought joy to so many British hearts, we’ve got everything you need to look tennis-tastic this summer…

In typical British fashion, the Indian summer is due to arrive any minute now just as we’ve packed away our bikinis and
taken out our coats. But the shops are full of gorgeous Autumn buys, and we recommend you start shopping for the colder weather now – all the savvy fashionistas are doing it. Leave it too late and all you’ll be left with are bargain bin buys.
So what to buy for this Autumn? Well, military style is back in yet again, and so green tights like the Falke Seidenglatt 70 Tights in Military will add a utility feel to your look AND keep you toasty warm. These tights are super luxe and feel as gorgeous as they look! Style them with a multi-pocketed shirt dress for the office or parka coat for a laid back weekend look.
Yellow tights will also be key for a second season – neon is in again, which means you can go as bright as you like with this shade (top tip – bright yellow looks really fresh when paired with colour-of-the-season purple). However, as we’re palette purists (or colour cowards), we prefer the eminently more wearable mustard shade – perfect for autumn. Try the
Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights in Mustard, which will look great peeking out from under a navy or grey cape.
As autumn merges into winter, white tights help to create a frosty feel perfect for crisp, cool winter days. White Falke tights were in last month’s issue of Vogue, teamed with a cobalt blue dress and icy grey trench. When wearing white tights, keep the rest of your outfit
neutral – pure white looks good with cool colours like grey, pale blue and lilac, or you can team cream or ivory tights with warmer colours like beige, taupe and camel.Start shopping your coloured tights for your autumn wardrobe now and in a couple of weeks, when there’s a nip in the air and the sun seems like a distant memory, you’ll be ahead of the game in the best that cosy autumn fashion has to offer.
