As if we needed another reason to feel hot under the collar this week in London, the release of the Fifty Shades of Grey film trailer certainly ensured soaring temperatures. Starring Dakota Johnson (of 21 Jump Street) and Jamie Dornan as the elusive Mr. Grey, the short trailer offers a mere snippet of the hotly anticipated scenes played out in E. L. James’ sell-out series. Even so, we’re hooked.

For those of you who missed the phenomenon that put a fire under housewives around the world in 2012, the premise is thus: quiet and plain student journalist Anastasia Steele is sent to interview powerful and outstandingly good looking entrepreneur Christian Grey. From here, the pair begin a relationship filled with outrageous bedroom exploits, with bold lingerie choices to match. Feeling inspired? Perhaps a little audacious? Us too. Here at MyTights, we know that the easiest way to inject a little sexinesss and confidence into an outfit is a great pair of hold ups – and we’ve lovingly compiled a list of our favourites, just for you. Go on, we dare you.

Tom Ford brought sexy back JT style this season with fishnet tights, so we thought we would share some of our wisdom with you so there are no excuses for any Avril circa 2002 fishnet faux pas…You’re welcome.

DO…

> Trust the designers- they know what they’re talking about. Tom Ford wasn’t the main man behind the Gucci turnaround in the late ‘90s for no reason; he knows how to style a woman. Have faith!

fishnet

> Have confidence in yourself, not just the designer. The most awkward thing to see is someone feeling uncomfortable. If you don’t feel yourself- don’t wear them!

> Less is more, remember? Why not wear fishnets underneath your trouser suit at the office with a pair of heels if you want to feel more confident but aren’t quite willing to show the whole leg.

> Try a pencil skirt with some leather boots, so your knee is the only bit of fishnet flesh on show.

> Dress yourself down in other areas:

>>For work & daytime: light lipstick, minimal make up, a pencil skirt and a blouse

>>For evenings- minimal make up – just because it’s dark doesn’t mean it’s a good idea to slap on the red lippy(!) – a tight midi skirt with a pair of boots and a light cropped jacket, or a plain coloured jersey dress.

> Wear sheer bare look tights underneath the fishnets if you want to keep warm this season. Try Falke Shelina Tights for this look, with several options to match your skin tone!

 

 

DON’T…

honeycomb-tights-main_1_2

> Deliberate in buying fishnets with holes in them. Unless you’re going to a fancy dress party. Even then I wouldn’t advise it.

> Wear stilettos or sky high heels- instead try a casual boot or a wedged boot.

> Do a Rihanna/Miley Cyrus and wear fishnet and NOTHING else. You won’t pull it off and you may be arrested.

> Overestimate your coolness, bright tights underneath green fishnets don’t work for everyone, so don’t assume you’re suddenly Taylor Momsen because you’ve purchased a pair of quirky tights. Black or nude is the safest choice of colour.

> Feel like you have to convert overnight- there are plenty of options if you want to be subtle but part of the fishnet craze this autumn.Try the Charnos Honey comb fishnets- with a matte finish; these tights hold a subtle honeycomb design that decorates legs whilst giving you a comfortable and warm feel- perfect all year round!

> Think that wearing a low cut top; a mini skirt and fishnets is in fashion, it’s not. Keep it classy.

We love patterned tights! There, we said it. Patterns make it really easy to add depth to your outfit with their intricate patterns and designs.  We’ve selected a few of our favourites at the moment and here is how we wear them…

Diamond print is bold and classic, and the Charnos Diamond Stripe Tights pattern is quite visible.  For this reason, it is important to maintain uniformity with your clothing so as to not overwhelm the outfit. A single colour skirt or shorts will add the coverage you need without distracting from the diamond pattern.  Keep your shoes simple to maintain the focus on your legs.

These Pretty Polly Chevron Cable Tights add more coverage so we like to save them for foggy and rainy days.  Pair them with a white lacy dress or an eyelet skirt to keep some summer flair in your outfit.  If you want to add colour to your outfit, a colourful, lightweight scarf or bright jewellery will do the trick without confusing the ensemble.

While the Charnos Diamond Net Tights are not artwork tights, they have a  fine design that reminds me of an artist’s careful hand.  However, this pattern is what makes it so versatile for the winter and summer months.  Try pairing a pastel coloured dress with them and simple flats for a spring outfit on a cooler day.  For a bolder look, a bright coral t-shirt dress would be perfect for a summer night out.

However you choose to wear your diamond and chevron patterned leg-wear, be sure to leave a comment telling us how you did!

There is nothing I enjoy more than finding a new, wacky print to add to my ever-growing collection but I often find myself struggling on how to style them. Luckily for you, after much trial and improvement on how to work this look flawlessly I am now here to spread the news. You too will be able to achieve a day to night wardrobe sensation (you’re welcome).

At the moment I am particularly taken with the Pamela Mann Paisley Net Tights because with the correct outfit they can be worn in the office or out on the town. What more could you want?!

Although these tights are black don’t be fooled into thinking that black can only be worn in the evenings. Get your office look in line by teaming these with a pastel skater skirt (we are loving turquoise/blue/teal this season) and a black button down blouse. Splashes of colour keep the tights day time appropriate but also classy enough to wear to your next meeting. Keep your footwear simple with some black pumps that don’t distract from the pattern, see our Polyvore account for more great ideas!!

To take these tights into the night it is important that you keep the rest of your outfit pattern and print free to avoid clashing or overdoing it. Less is definitely more on this occasion! We decided that these paisley lace tights look absolutely gorgeous teamed with a black panelled skater dress and black heels to accentuate those gorgeous legs. The flowing hemlines of a skater dress will ensure there is enough femininity to this jet black montage. We recommend keeping your makeup fairly natural as the paisley print is enough of a statement and the all black outfit should be kept clean and simple.

Last but certainly not least is how to style these for a casual day time look, somewhere between office appropriate and evening wear. I think these paisley tights look really stylish with a gray skater skirt and a crop top with a simple coloured jacket. This look is casual and due to the colours all being simple/pastels/ nothing too outrageous or bright, it still has the spotlight on the paisley tights.

I hope this has helped you take one pair of tights to new heights and lots of different looks! Comment below on how you would wear these paisley print tights.

Any kind of legwear that is not all one colour can be difficult to style.  However, artwork tights definitely take the cake.  These are fun but daring, and you have to own them to make them work.  I’ve always been one to stick well within my fashion comfort zone but this trend is too fun to pass up. Here are a few prints we have been loving to style.

First up, we have the Pamela Mann Comic Strip Tights.  The bright comic book strip print is perfect for Halloween. I’m kidding, kind of.  These tights are laid back and can be paired a simple black skirt to ensure that the focus will be on your  legs.  They are perfect for casual Friday at work or an afternoon strolling around the city.

If your style is out of this world, you might want to try the Pamela Mann Galactic Sky Printed Tights.  Galaxy prints have been very in this past year and they are easy to wear with a long black tunic and plain Vans or Converse.  To dress up the look, wedge lace up booties will add just enough glam without looking out of place.

Rock and Roll is always in style, and we have got the perfect pair to for to show off your love for it.  Pamela Mann’s Skull & Roses Tights are the perfect combination of girly flair and tough rocker chick.  Pair them with black leather shorts for a fun night out and keep the party rocking.

For more artwork tights, be sure to check out MyTights.com. We have you covered… to infinity and beyond.

It’s something we’ve all wished we could wear to save our toes but have never dared to try.  We’ve talked about socks with sandals but what about with pumps and booties?! Visible socks with heels have been making a comeback and we’ve gathered our top products to create the perfect summery look.

Next time you’re wearing your favourite summer dress, try pairing it with Mary Jane style heels and a complimenting sock colour.  To try this look out, I paired a flowy cut-out dress with a light floral print with Jonathan Aston’s Buttercup Socks in Dried Rose.  Paired with nude heels, the socks added some warmth to the outfit which made it perfect for a sunny but breezy day.  The soft rose colour was a perfect complement to the spring look of the dress and the white stripe at the top helped transition from sock to bare leg.

For a more wearable daytime look, try pairing the Pretty Polly Floral Spot Ankle High socks with brown booties and your favourite white dress. The looser the dress, the more relaxed your look will be.  We paired ours with a lacy white dress to bring out the lace in the sock and brown lace up booties with knit cardigan for a full on bohemian look.

Ankle socks have never been more in style, and we love the new looks that are now socially acceptable to wear. Let us know with a comment below how you wear your socks and heels.

Women all over the world tend to feel very victimised by the pressures that society puts on us as a gender to look slim and toned, to have curves in

Spanx Cotton Crew

all the right places and to have that all important thigh gap (eurgh, why?!).

And whilst the image is beginning to change for women as more plus sized models are being seen modelling underwear and clothing of all sorts, have you seen a plus size male model on the front of a Calvin Klein packet yet? In fact, have you seen a plus sized male model at all?

So yes, whilst women feel the pressures to be stick thin maybe it’s time to consider the pressures on men to have 6-packs and huge biceps… Spanx could be just the trick to regain your confidence and tone up without spending hours in the gym (who has time for that anyway?!).

Instead of sitting at your office desk, feeling miserable about that bit of Christmas weight that hasn’t shifted, or feeling guilty for dunking more than 1 chocolate digestive in your cuppa, head over to mytights.com and invest in a SPANX Cotton Compression Crew, and I say invest because just like a gym membership it is an investment into being a happy chappy. You won’t regret it.

In case I need additional points to encourage men to buy these genius shirts, fear not because you can’t even tell you’re wearing them, completely discreet and can be worn under shirts/ t-shirts or on their own. However you feel comfortable!

These SPANX tops have a high level of control to firm your chest and abs, look toned and feel confident without the hassle, price and time consumption of a gym membership. Win/win, we think you’ll agree.

If you’re more of a tank top kinda guy, we have just the thing for you as well- SPANX Zoned Performance Tank.

So really, you don’t have any excuses now…

If you’re feeling especially supportive of the hosting country, try the Trasparenze Gennifer Merino Wool Tights in Bosco.  Your forest green legs will let everyone know you’re ready for kick-off and the dark colour is easy to style.  If you want a lighter weight tight, try Pamela Mann’s 50 Denier Tights in Forest Green.  For the brighter side of things, try them in Mustard and pair with a light coloured dress.

If you want a look that mirrors those of the men on the field, try our Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks in Olivia. These knee high socks will add a fun and youthful look to your outfit and keep in spirit with the World Cup.  Wear them with flats or heeled booties and you’re ready to take on your day, football style.

If you’re feeling more English than Brazilian, we’ve got you covered.  The Falke Cotton Touch Short Socks in Cherry Red will bring just enough to spirit and colour to your outfit to show you’re a fan yet still be fashion forward.

Fashion-rebel Avril Lavigne donned a daring ensemble in her performance in Southern California over the weekend. Pictures show her pairing black suspender tights with mini black pleather, shorts and a rock-music emblazoned tank.  Her look matched her rock-inspired set list with just enough of a girly touch, reminding us that she is not the young sk8er girl she used to be – but rather an older and sexier version of one.

Backstreet Boys in concert, Los Angeles, America - 29 May 2014

Avril isn’t the only celeb wearing the suspender tights trend.  Miley Cyrus, Paris Hilton, Rihanna, and Selena Gomez have all been spotted wearing the sexy legwear with their own outfit choices.  While their styles were more fit for daily wear, Avril’s should be saved strictly for performing.  Her barely-there shorts paired with suspender tights give off a slightly raunchy look, one we recommend not copying for tea with your grandmother.  However, it does give off a rebellious vibe we love for clubbing.

While this trend is not for the faint hearted, we’ve done the work for you and chic-ified it so you can wear it to work and around town.

Suspender tights are sexy enough so the rest of your outfit should be a little more conservative.  We love to pair our Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights with a medium length skirt and jumper for a more covered up, cosy look.  For more of a relaxed look, black shorts with a plaid flannel or tucked-in blouse will make you look stylish yet covered-up.  Add a light parka over a simple dress to add an army-inspired edge to your sexy ensemble.

To add femininity to your outfit, we suggest wearing tights with a patterned suspender.  Try the Pamela Mann Large Overknee Heart Tights to soften your look.  Pair these with a simple dress and flats, and your outfit will be flirty while still maintaining the right amount of sexy.  If you’re feeling especially bold, you can try our Hello Kitty for PP Mick Suspender HK Tights for a young, playful look.

Thanks for the inspiration Avril; while we wouldn’t wear this outfit to our job, we love what you’ve done with this trend.  Leave a comment below telling us how you style your suspender tights.
