The month of endless Fashion Week(s) have come and gone. From New York to Paris,  designers from all over showcased their newest designs for Spring/Summer 2015. While we have just gotten into autumn, it is NEVER too early to start thinking about the upcoming trends for this spring. We here at MyTights have all the upcoming tights trends here for you so you can start stocking up early.

 

New York

Footless Black Tights seemed to be a popular accessory at the Polo Ralph Lauren Show. While these specific tights are paired with pretty white lace dresses and black accessories, these tights can be styled in virtually any way- from dressed up to dressed down.

London

The Fashion World exploded when Tom Ford gave us lots of legs styled with Black Hold Ups all over his runway in London. Styled with LBD’s, black hold ups are yet another versatile accessory that can easily be brought from day to night with a simple change in hemline.

Still not sure about socks with heels? David Longshaw showed us in London that this trend will be very alive this upcoming spring by pairing pretty socks with heels on all of his models. This trend is perfect for early spring/late fall when you want to still wear your strappy sandals without having your toes get too cold. Protection and style, what more could you ask for!?

Milan

Giamba donned all her models in white spotty tights on her runway in Milan. While we do not have white spots in stock (they have been dully noted though), black will work just as well with this trend. Take Giamba’s advice and do not be afraid to mix the spots with more spots or floral patterns.

Dolce and Gabbana shared lots of hosiery trends on their runway. My personal favorite was floraly, lacy knee high socks. These socks can be very versatile and compliments almost any outfit. Pair with strappy sandals to wear when the weather isn’t quite warm enough.

Paris

Jean Paul Gaultier said au revoir to his ‘ready to wear’ career by pulling off the most outrageously fun fashion show of Paris Fashion Week- I was extremely jealous of this ‘beauty pageant’. Many of his models were clothed in coloured tights. Pair with anything from denim shorts to a LBD as these tights are very versatile.

Last, but definitely not least: Louis Vuitton also stepped onto the tights bandwagon this year by dressing his models in lace tights. Do not be afraid to pair these tights with a pattered dress like Louis Vuitton did, it looks wonderfully fun!

It’s difficult to build a wardrobe from scratch, especially a tights one. I went to our social media platforms over the past few weeks and asked our followers ‘What tights can you not live without?’

These are their responses:

 

 

Falke Seidenglatt 70 denier Opaques

These tights are always a customer favourite- they have the thickness of an opaque but the shine of a sheer. They are a perfect tight to bring you from the office to drinks without having to change your legwear.

Here at MyTights HQ, we love it when a hosiery brand signs up a shiny new celebrity to be the face of their label. So you can imagine our glee when MyTights favourites Pretty Polly recently announced they have signed up pop starlet Sophie Ellis-Bextor (of Murder On The Dancefloor fame) to front their new autumn/winter collection. The 35 year old singer joins an illustrious list of celebrities who have previously fronted a campaign for the brand, including none other than the Sugababes, Jade Jagger, Jemma Kidd, Jamelia and Jessie J. Not content with showcasing her never-ending pins in shop windows across the country, the glamorous mother of three is also lending her fashion expertise to the brand with the launch of a series of her own styles. Pretty Polly released a statement commenting on the new collection, which was revealed to be titled Flirty, explaining that was heavily influenced by the ‘vintage and folkloric styling’ of their newest addition. We love Sophie’s quirky style at MyTights, so if this claim has any truth behind it, then we’re seriously excited for the new range!

The star is said to be thrilled at being approached by the brand, adding that ‘Tights have always been a staple part of my wardrobe both on stage and off – I love the way they can change or update an outfit.’ You don’t need to preach to the converted, Sophie!

I’m sure you’re all holding your breath until the new collection is launched, but until then why not have a look at the fantastic range of Pretty Polly hosiery we stock here at MyTights! Whether you’re after everyday opaque tights, classic sheer tights, or on-trend  fashion tights, you’ll find it here. Shop now.

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!

After a teeth-chattering decade on the fashion scrapheap, the style gods have decided to welcome back an old friend this Autumn/Winter. That’s right – Hedi Slimane’s recent collection for Saint Laurent featured every woman’s hosiery BFF – black opaques!

For years, the trusty black opaque, with all its added warmth and versatility, has played second fiddle to bare leg looks. And it’s hardly surprising – a natural bare leg look is the epitome of elegance and chic. But unlike catwalk models and A-List celebs, we normal folk don’t tend to have a driver chauffeuring us from door to door. Ask yourself – when was the last time you saw the likes of Kate Middleton and Alexa Chung waiting at a bus stop with a bag of chips?

However, it appears that things might be changing. The fact that a fashion house with as much power and influence as Saint Laurent has incorporated black opaques into their AW14 look is undoubtedly a huge step in the right direction. With this in mind, and always wanting to leave you one step ahead of the fashion pack, MyTights.com has created a handy guide to getting black opaques right!

The key with black opaques is to eradicate any associations of them being the sartorial choice of school matrons. First and foremost, we advise against wearing opaques with any midi or longline skirt lengths – it’s simply unflattering (if you want a bit of coverage for a longer length skirt, it’ll look much better if you plump for a chic pair of semi opaque tights instead). For a great, risk-free look, team with a shorter skirt or pair of shorts – perfect for pretty much any occasion! Another advantage of black opaques is that they go with just about anything, so feel free to experiment with colours, textures and patterns. Dress down for those harsh winter days with a wool dress, faux fur coat and ankle boots. Or for a glamorous evening look, you can’t go wrong with your favourite LBD, heels and lashings of jewellery! What’s more, if you can’t bear to part with your summer sandals, make like Saint Laurent, who showed  black opaques with a pair of strappy sandals for a quirky and fashion-forward look.

The days of banishing black opaques to the bottom of your hosiery drawer are well and truly over. So wear yours with pride this autumn/winter! Your legs will be eternally grateful once January comes around…

Here are 5 of the best:

  1. Pretty Polly 40D Opaque Tights – helping to bridge the tricky weather between summer and autumn, these nylon tights will leave                your pins feeling super soft and bestof all, are completely affordable!

  2. Pamela Mann 50 Denier Tights – perfect for everyday wear, these will provide you with enough warmth for those chilly autumn mornings without being too heavy on the leg. Plus they’re super soft and have an elegant slight sheen finish. Ta da –  a polished look perfect for the office.
  3. Andrea Bucci Lycra ® Fusion Fibre Opaque Tights - these can only be described as hosiery superheroes! Not only are these perfect for day to day wear, they’re also made with cutting edge run resist technology – no more ladders!
  4. Aristoc 120 Denier Cotton Sheen Tights – versatile enough to wear everyday or for a night in town, these elegant tights from British brand Aristoc are the ideal addition to your hosiery drawer. Luxuriously warm, they also have a slight sheen finish which will catch the light beautifully!
  5. Wolford Satin De Luxe Tights – the ultimate in elegance and glam, these opaques from Wolford come with a wet look finish and fashion-forward backseam. A real must have for those who appreciate the finer things in life…

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.

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!
