Mother-Daughter Looks

Like mother, like daughter. When it comes to fashion, most girls can’t help but have their wardrobe inspired by their mothers! This is especially true amongst famous families—and who can blame them? The Obamas, Middletons, Beckhams and even the Ciccones (Madonna) have daughters that follow similar trends in their hosiery and you can even mimic their looks with your own mum!mother-daughter-look-obamas-polaroid

The Obama girls are often overshadowed by the man of the (white) house, but that doesn’t stop them from looking fabulous. Michelle always keeps it chic and classy with a beautiful ensemble usually paired with plain opaques, but she recently started following the spring and summer trend with glossy sheers. They make her legs look moisturized and fit, without overpowering her look. Her daughters have a similar chic style with plain opaques, but show their youth with the popular colour blocking technique. The girls also matched each other in complimentary colors, how cute! You can get the Obama family’s looks with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights for mum and the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights for the daughters!mother-daughter-look-middletons-polaroid

Kate Middleton and her mother Carole also have corresponding classy styles; however they have recently started to differ in their hosiery. Kate is maintaining her royal appearance with her famous bare or almost-bare look while her mother has been adding a twist to her wardrobe with her elegant patterned tights. They both look stunning, and you can too with the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 30D High Waisted Tights for Kate’s classic look and the Charnos Diamond Net Tights for Carole’s chic legs.mother-daughter-beckham-polaroid

Victoria Beckham’s fashion choices are always making headlines and little Harper is well on her way to follow in mummy’s footsteps. Both babes were spotted in wool tights—mummy in black and Harper in white. The contrasting duo will continue to make fabulous hosiery choices, and you can match the Beckhams and your baby girl with the Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights and the Country Kids Warmer Tights.

mother-daughter-look-madonna-polaroidMadonna and daughter Lourdes have been turning heads for their edgy hosiery selections. Madonna has been getting attention for her eccentric fashion choices for some time and still uses her fishnets for a 80s throwback vibe. Lourdes is a rookie compared to her mum when it comes to making headlines in fashion, but she does so with ease by clashing a tartan skirt and stripy tights. Getting these looks has never been easier with the Charnos Fishnet Tights for a Madonna inspired legs and the Pamela Mann Stripe Over Knee Suspender Tights for Lourdes’ edgy ensemble.

 

 

It’s never been easier to be as stylish as these mother-daughter icons and it can all be found at MyTights.com!

Celebrity Favourites: Get the Look!

Hankering after a little star style this season?  Get the look, with our pick of celebrity favourites…

K-Middy’s Bare Leg Look Tights: Kate Middleton and the Great Sheer Tights Debate has become one of the most iconic hosiery looks of the last few years – ironic, since as the name suggests, you can’t even see them.  There are loads of bare leg look styles on the market that offer wonderful coverage and a flawless skin tone – it’s rumored Kate wears Wolford sheers, but we love the Falke Shelina Tights, which offer the perfect shade for every skintone.

Zooey Deschanel’s Opaque Tights: There’s no denying that Zooey is the official face of opaque tights – from New Girl set to red carpet event, she never seems to take hers off!  For those of you without the A List budget, there are the Pamela Mann 80 Denier Opaque 

Tights – just the right thickness to keep out the chill without being too thick for elegant eveningwear, they come in a range of shades so you can match them to your accessories.

Zooey_DeschanelKateMiddleton

Gwyneth’s Wool Tights:  On her much-discussed lifestyle website Goop, the Hollywood actress includes the wonderfully warm Wolford Merino Tights in her top picks for avoid the icy polar vortex weather in the US.  We’re not surprised – they’re wonderfully warm and super luxe to boot!

Little Mix’s Suspender Tights: The Little Mix lovelies are hard at work making a name for themselves across the pond, and are (in our opinion) at least partially responsible for the resurgence of suspender tights in the last few months.  Get the look by donning a pair with a twist, like the super cute Pamela Mann Bunny Ear Overknee Tights or the popular Pamela Mann Paris Skyline Suspender Tights.

Jesy-littlemix-suspender

 

Rochelle’s Shapewear: The Saturdays lovely has made no secret of her love of shapewear, and Spanx in particular.  And with a figure like hers, why wouldn’t you want to get the look?!  If you’re expecting, opt for the Spanx Power Mama Shaper, just like Rochelle – or if you just want a little helping hand to get Rochelle’s amazing hourglass figure, the Spanx Higher Power Brief is just the ticket.

Miranda Kerr’s Sheer Tights: Sales of sheer tights have soared in recent months, with classic black sheers making a name for themselves for the first time since the 90s.  Model Miranda has been spotted out and about in hers on several occasions – get the look with a 20 denier sheer like the Falke Pure Matt 20 Tights, which have a classic matte finish and luxurious feel for a look just like Miranda’s.

Our Top Picks – January 2014

pamela-mann-bunny-ear-suspender-tights

It might be a brand new year, but some things never change – and it’s that time of the month again, when we carefully select our top three products for those of you who maybe aren’t quite sure what you’re after, or are looking for a little inspiration….

1)      Pamela Mann Bunny Ear Overknee Tights

Why? You only have to look at these adorable rabbit detail suspender tights to know why they’ve made the top three this month.  If you’re still not sure, we can’t help you.

Style With: A thigh skimming playsuit to make the most of the striking detail – make it work for day by adding wedge booties and a slouchy cardie.

Wear To: Parties – they’re a great conversation starter – plus what better way to make sure all eyes are on you as soon as you enter the room?

How Much? £9.99/$16.50/€12,00

wolford-merino-tights2)      Wolford Merino Tights

Why?  If you’ve treated yourself to the bunny ears option, chances are you’ll have pennies to spare.  Investing in the basics has always been our mantra, and it doesn’t get more classic than these luxury wool tights.  Made with an impressive 50% virgin merino wool, forget stocks and shares – these are the smartest investment you’ll make this winter.

Style With:  A versatile matte finish and classic Wolford design mean these will go with pretty much anything – why not try corduroy shorts, ankle boots and a wax jacket for that chic farmer feel?

Wear To: Anywhere you’re likely to get cold – whether it’s a walk in the park or a frosty commute, these simply won’t allow the cold to venture too close.

How Much? £32.99 (available UK only)

moulin-rouge-high-heels-dotty-tights3)      Moulin Rouge High Heels Dotty Tights

Why?  We’ve always loved these back seam, polka dot sheers, but since we spotted Beyoncé rocking a replica at the Grammys while performing with hubbie Jay-Z, we’re OBSESSED with them.  The perfect blend of ladylike chic and fashion forward pizazz, AND an A List seal of approval – what’s not to like love?

Style With: A few more clothes than Beyoncé wore – try a skater dress with sheer or lace panels to keep an edge of sexiness, and skyscraper stilettos to continue the line of the seam and make your legs appear endless.

Wear To:  The office, if your dress code isn’t too strict – these will look great with a pencil skirt, too!

How Much? £12.00/$19.50/€14,50

5 Styles For Spring

wolford-eyla-stay-upsIt’s never too early to embrace the SS14 trends, so here are our tips for which tights will go best with the upcoming styles.

Dark Florals
Blooms are booming next season, and this time think sophisticated big floral prints on a dark background. Team a floral dress with black opaques for a classic and flattering look. These stunning Ultra Fit 80D High Waisted Shaper Tights by Calvin Klein render that expensive January gym membership unnecessary. Providing the best of both world, these gorgeous opaques give you an enviable silhouette and still feel comfortable thanks to the soft microfiber yarn.

Sport Luxe
Wolford can do no wrong in our eyes, consistently giving classic staples a fresh and elegant update. This time they’ve worked their magic on their Eyla stay ups, adding a sexy scarlet trim to the tops. The high quality yarn and reinforced toes ensures that these sheers will outlast this glam trend. Match these hold ups in Sahara/Red with a bomber jacket or a slogan sweatshirt and a white mini skirt or shorts.

pamela-mann-art-deco-net-tightsFashion Meets Art
Many designers have been looking to the art world for inspiration this season. If you want to attain this cultured look why not pair a LBD with these Pamela Mann Deco Net Tights. Featuring a range of intricate patterns including diagonal lines, semi circles and diamonds, this hosiery could hush even the harshest art critic.

Pleats
Pleats are popular again. Style your on-trend kilt with classic white wool for a look that screams highland chic, and cream woolen tights just don’t come classier than Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights. These thick opaque tights aren’t just fashionable but functional thanks to the insulating wool content. Even if the weather doesn’t warm up until September 2014, your pins will stay snug and pampered.

Pink Blush
Pastel pink is one of the hot shades for next season. Embracing this look couldn’t be easier with Jonathan Aston’s 40D Opaque Tights, available in the perfect shade of Candy Pink. If this cotton candy colour is too sickly sweet for you then don’t worry because red and electric blue are also tipped to be big. Yes, you guessed it, Jonathan Aston has terrific tights in these shades too.

LAURA’S CHOICE – WOOL TIGHTS

Falke Soft Merino Wool 2

Storms are afoot and I am very tempted to hibernate under the duvet and read one of the many books that I received for Christmas. Thankfully, these woolen tights make this time of year much more manageable. We have such a wide range of delectable and cosy hosiery that it can be difficult to know where to begin, but thankfully you have narrowed it down with your reviews left on Feefo, our independent review service. Here are my recommendations, and what you had to say about them.

These classic wool tights will go with everything you own – so no more waking up to find there’s a blizzard outside and you have nothing to wear.

Levante Plain Wool Tights“Warm and cozy in sub zero Celsius weather.”

If you reckon that the weather is just too frightful to face while wearing your favourite skirt, then think again. Levante Plain Wool Tights not only look divine in their subtle shades but they also keep your legs wonderfully warm. These sumptuous tights also boast a reinforced toe making them winter walk proof.

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights“These tights were exactly what I wanted and I am delighted. They are well constructed which means that they are comfortable to wear. They are also durable and following the washing instructions means that in terms of depreciation, they will eventually pay for themselves!” 

Trasparenze Wool Gennifer

These woolen wonders feel luxuriously soft thanks to a special finishing treatment. Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights are pitch-perfect any time of day, with wool on the outside to protect you from the elements and cotton weaved inside to keep you comfortable. Equally, thanks to the hand-fit toe technique, there is no visible seam at the toe for increased comfort. These elegant opaques are available in six different chic shades. Reassuringly thick and soft, these wool tights are designed to last.

However, coloured tights provide a superb solution for adding a bit of welcome colour to those wardrobe staples.

Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights“I get these tights all the time. The quality is excellent, they are warm (I live in Alaska and wear dresses to work) and the price is affordable.” 

For impeccable style in a myriad of colours, I would suggest Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights. From the violet version in Prugna, to the pine green shade Bosco, there is an ideal option for everyone. I personally adore the rich raspberry tones of Rubino – perfect for warming up a winter outfit, such as a grey chevron knitted shift dress.

The fashion tights below prove that it is very possible to keep warm and look fabulous.

Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights  – “These are superb. Warm, yet flattering.”

Jonathan Aston Alaska

I love tights that work and play hard, like the Jonathan Aston Alaska Tights which ensure that you look stylish and feel snug. Team these showstoppers with an aubergine skirt and cream turtleneck for a subtle yet on-trend look. This fashion hosiery is available in black and navy – perfect for a multitude of ensembles.

Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Tights“Very warm and snug! Excellent quality!”

When I fancy a slightly different look that is still warm enough to keep my toes toasty then I tend to plump for Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Tights. The fine rib design is exceedingly flattering and adds an unexpected touch to my outfits. Whether you are 4’9” or 6’1”, slim or curvaceous, with 4 different sizes there is a perfect fit for everyone.

Levante Wool Rib Tights“These tights are soft, warm, and incredibly comfortable. The waistband stays up but doesn’t bind, and the toes are reinforced but don’t irritate.”

The Levante Wool Rib Tights are available in elegant coffee shades. Armed with a generous 100 denier, these opaques give my legs an even coverage. The flat lying waistband and barely there seams make these tights a joy to wear. Personally, I find that the Mocca shade goes perfectly with little tan leather boots, an aubergine pleated skirt and a chocolate cashmere jumper.

Aristoc 100 denier cashmere

For another subtle twist on a classic staple, I also adore Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights. The design elongates your legs, giving self-assurance even in the coldest of weathers. Durability is always a key factor when selecting tights and these toasty soft tights boast a superior thickness.   Again, these tights benefit from the hand-fit toe technique providing a superior fit. The wide range of different shades available means that you do not have to sacrifice warmth in order to achieve your required look. Falke Soft Merino Wool Ribbed Tights – “Wonderful quality as always. Warm, cosy and great colours.” 

Now for even more luxurious tights, these pairs will keep you feeling sumptuously snug no matter the weather.

Aristoc Cashmere Blend 100 Denier Tights“I have MS so getting tights on can be a huge struggle. These are soft, stretchy and comfortable and slide on easily.”

The addition of a touch of cashmere gives these opulent opaques a luxurious soft feel and their 3D construction gives 100% even coverage as well as warmth. Aristoc Cashmere Blend 100 Denier Tights also have a soft 4cm waistband, so these tights provide pure comfort from toe to tip. Match these tights with a long light pink coat for a delightfully fashionable but equally functional look.

Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights“Lovely quality, soft with a hint of shine. Quite generous sizing and extremely comfortable to wear.”

Woolly tights do not come more deluxe than this! Woven from a generous high-quality mixture of cotton, cashmere and silk, Falke Sensual Touch Silk Cashmere Blend Tights is haute hosiery that again provides you with comfort and style. The three materials work perfectly together, the silk makes these tights beautifully smooth, the cashmere keeps you sumptuously warm, while the cotton content also provides an additional comfort factor. Falke weaves their tights in such a way that they always provide a snug and flattering fit. My favourite shade is navy, however there are 3 others from which you can choose.

We hope that these splendid woolen tights will turn your winter from freezing to wonderful.

Until next time…

MyTights & Dune: A Match Made in Heaven

With the weather already into the seemingly irreversible decline of autumn once more, it’s time to pack away our flip flops, relinquish the sunnies and wave goodbye to bare legs.  Which made us sad – for about a minute, until we remembered that this means we can dig out last year’s cape, dust off the hosiery drawer and treat ourselves to a new pair of boots, safe in the knowledge we can dress up such purchases as a necessity rather than a frivolous indulgence.  Yippee!

Not only does the re-emergence of tights as our wardrobe staple mean we can stop faffing with fake tan and maintaining a meticulous round-the-clock hair removal regime, they permit us to continue rocking our summer dresses for weeks to come without fear of overexposure, PLUS they’re the best team mate for our pending new boots.

The ladies at Dune are with us, it seems, as their latest video pairs their essential AW13 boots collection with MyTights hosiery – so whatever your style, there’s a boot-and-tights combo designed for you…
