Thick Black Opaques: A Style Battle!

Emma Willis looking characteristically fab! Generally as far as winters go, this one hasn’t been too bad. Sure, we’ve rarely been able to leave the house without at least a few layers, but we’ve admittedly done pretty well. That is, until this week of course! Thousands of us across the country have been hit with a dreaded cold snap, bringing with it a blanket of snow and forcing hundreds of schools to shut down for the day. While celebrities usually have a knack of being able to wear sheer tights or bare legs all year round, it seems that the current cold weather has proved too much for two of MyTights style favourites. Both Fearne Cotton and Emma Willis this week opted to wrap up warm, stepping out in a pair of thick black opaque tights, albeit channelling rather different looks. But the question that’s on all of our lips; who wore it best?Fearne Cotton at BBC Radio 1 Studios, London, Britain - 23 Jan 2015

Celebrity Big Brother presenter and all round golden girl Emma Willis braved this week’s live eviction in a stunning floral PVC jacket, high neck burgundy mini and chic suede heels, finishing off her quirky look with a pair of thick black opaques. While we don’t think Emma’s jacket is wearable for us normal folk, we can’t help but admire her gorgeous ensemble, and we particularly loved her choice of burgundy dress, which nailed the trend for block colours perfectly. Opting for a pair of black heels also gave her bottom half a uniformed appearance, showing off her slim legs brilliantly. We salute you Emma! Moving on now to Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton, who wore her black opaques as part of a more relaxed daytime look. Protecting herself from the elements in a glamorous leopard print coat, the TV personality wore a somewhat unusual (although stylish) mix of a pastel knitted jumper and matching dress in a floaty chiffon fabric. Finishing around the mid-calf, her dress allowed for a hint of her thick black opaques to shine though. Typical of Fearnes style, her outfit was certainly original, but we can’t help think it had a little too much going on to pip Emma to the post.

This round goes to the lovely Mrs Willis!

Look Magazine & Winter Warmers 04/01/2011

New year, new ways to wear fabulous tights and socks. Christmas may be over, but don’t be fooled, the freezing weather is still upon us. Look Magazine have featured a few gems that we sell here at MyTights and come up with ingenious ways to stay warm but also look fabulous. They have featured a pair of Pantherella over the knee socks with high waisted shorts, a nautical long sleeved top and gilet/waistcoat  number. Clearly you don’t have to compromise warmth for style, so not only can you have your cake and eat it, you can make it bake it and decorate it.

As part of their mini catwalk collection, Look magazine have provided us with ways to wear dresses which don’t involve getting pneumonia. Ribbed tights have made a comeback this season, and a gorgeous grey pair of ribbed Falke tights have been teamed up with a denim shirt dress and slouchy chunky knit cardigan, snuggly chic at its very best. If you’re a bit braver however, you can indulge your love of sheer tights with these Jonathan Aston numbers in pretty much any colour that takes your fancy!

Have a look at our full winter warmers collection and let your inner Eskimo merge with your outer fashionista.
