A pair of black tights… Sounds pretty simple, right?

WRONG…

 

Black tights have always been apparent in the fashion world, bringing versatility to those colder winter nights out as well as work wear, and the bonus is they go with any type of footwear.  The only problem is, there are so many to choose from – with SO many styles to choose from we can understand why you would get confused; but don‘t worry we’ve simplified the options for you to find a pair that suit you (and the weather)!

 

Sheer

With the choice of ‘barely black’ from the colour options, these sheers are a light (10) denier and are a customer favourite with an ultra glossy finish and flattering fit!

 

Semi-opaque

These flattering semi-opaques live up to the Wolford name, and are ideal for work with comfort and durability as a main aspect.

 

Opaque

These Wolford Velvet de Luxe 66 denier tights have a gorgeous smooth matte finish, and they are made from a velvety yarn for a soft and luxurious feel. These luxury tights are perfect for winter!

 

Support

These support tights are perfect for aching pins and sore ankles! Invista tried and tested, the Firm Energising Support Tights have a Factor 6 support for your thighs, a Factor 9 for your calves and a strong Factor 12 for around the ankles.

 

Fit shaping

Don’t quite have the time to hit the gym? These fit shaping tights not only flatten tummies and firm up hips, thighs and bums but their unique resistance band technology will help you burn extra calories too.

 

Cotton

Uninterrupted by a brief, the fabric remains the same thickness through for a gorgeous, even colour. Without any visible reinforcement, you have complete peace of mind that those flirty hemlines won’t expose anything.

 

Seam free

Perfect for wearing under close fitting or clingy dresses, these seamless tights ensure that there are no seams to show through your clothing.

 

Wool/thick

Made with a harmonious mix of merino wool and cotton, these will keep your warm no matter what the weather side is up to.

 

Cashmere

These thick cotton tights will keep you warm in the winter months, and the addition of cashmere and silk yarns, means they will feel gorgeous on your skin too!

Summer is over, and unfortunately we all have to resign ourselves to the fact that England doesn’t quite stay warm forever. But we always have an answer to everything, right?

This season shows us that we don’t need to cover up completely, as patterned tights invaded the AW14 runways.

Vivienne Westwood led the pack in the AW14 patterned tights collection, with her diverse range of tartan-check hosiery and eccentric triangle print tights. Want to upgrade your wardrobe this autumn? We have some purse-friendly options to help you stay in style without breaking the bank!

 

Tartan

So AW13 saw the return of the tartan print thanks to Karl Lagerfield, with brands such as Valentino and Gucci quickly following suit to add plaid to their collections. Immensely popular, it makes a return for 2014 and this year experiments with geometric op art checks and autumnal colours, along with the classic red print.

Bold shapes

Vivienne never fails to disappoint and this year, Westwood showed us how it’s done when they paired shapes with bold block coloured suits and leather. Why not try stepping outside the box and becoming a shape shifter this autumn?

Cheryl Fernandez-Versini (she will always be Cole to us, too!) was recently papped wearing a pair of spotted hosiery teamed with a black and gold mini dress, giving off a cute but stylish look. The spotty trend is back in, and with the sheen of the tights makes it so easy to dress them up or down whatever the occasion. If you wear a pair of skin coloured opaques underneath these styles, you’ll be sure to stay warm during the winter months, too!

There’s nothing worse than turning up for an interview and you’ve missed the attire ‘memo’. You may as well have turned up naked, and that reoccurring dream that haunted you since you were a child has just materialized. But of course, help is at hand here at MyTights.com! Here’s some guidance on how to ace that interview, and as we are judged within the first 7 seconds of meeting someone, the appearance is a pretty good place to start…

 

94% of interviewers have a negative impression on a candidate if they show up bare-legged*

Unfortunately we aren’t all blessed with naturally slender or blemish free legs, (or hot weather all year round!), and so this may not apply to many-  if Miranda Kerr and Beyoncé still invest in sheers then there’s no reason why we shouldn’t!

 

The ‘debate’…

Years ago the debate on whether women should or shouldn’t wear tights to the workplace was unheard of, and pantyhose were a woman’s best friend. Many women still live by this, and this is something candidates need to consider! Your potential employers are probably not your age so wearing tights is a must for them, and as a potential newbie you don’t want to give any of the senior team a reason to dislike you! After you’ve been hired, you can then get a feel for the company to then decided whether going bare-legged can be accepted.

 

Company culture

You may be asked to dress in business casual and if so then fretting whether you should or shouldn’t wear tights won’t be an issue. BUT don’t assume that all businesses dress this way; make sure to ask and get a full brief policy description.

 

“For women, the more skin you show, the less influence you have.”

 

 

 

So, now we’ve discovered that tights are a BIG deal in an interview (who knew?!) now all you have to do is CHOOSE a pair…

Colours are limited, as although coloured and patterned tights are ‘in’, wearing the newest AW14 trend to an interview for a financial position in a bank may not be appreciated; so for ultimate safety stick to Nude or Black tights.

 

 

 

Opaques

These 50 denier suede matt opaque tights are an essential to the winter wardrobe this season, super soft and smooth against your legs they can be worn with any fabric skirt and perfect for an interview!

levante-suede-matt

 

Nude sheers-

These sheers have been around since 1937 (with a few tweaks to keep them up to date with hosiery innovation, of course), so we are pretty certain that they are a good catch. These 10 denier tights are cherished for their ultra-glossy finish, and with high durability and wear you can’t go wrong!

 

Black

With a broad selection of dark colours to choose from, these glossy Wolfords will have any interviewer wishing they’ve got a pair!

Mario Testino – one of the most influential and leading photographers of our time, and even if you aren’t too familiar with the name you would’ve seen his portraits on front pages of high end magazines including Vogue and Vanity Fair (he was the man behind the camera when shooting what was said to be Princess Diana’s last major portrait session in 1997, 12 weeks before her death). So, who better to strengthen the emotional presence of the luxury  Wolford brand than Testino himself?!

The brand have turned up the heat this July with a sneak peek revealed of their new campaign, featuring model Caroline Winberg oozing sex appeal in stylish but provocative black and white photographs. The way Testino collaborates the product and the personality within these pictures creates an original and motivating theme for the refocus of Wolford.

So if one of the world’s most famous fashion photographers (whose persistence in shooting Gisele is credited to be an elevation to her high status today) is shooting exclusive hosiery and bodysuits which reflect the modern woman- why wouldn’t you want to join in and give yourself some instant glamour in the sensual hosiery?!

Here’s the exclusive selection Testino was papping this season and our recommendations on where to wear them in AW14…

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.
