Ankle Highs Trend: FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs

FKA Twigs

  

She might be dating one of the worlds most lusted after film stars in Twilight actor Robert Pattinson, but that hasn’t stopped FKA Twigs expressing how difficult it can be facing the wrath of his ‘Twi-hard’ legion of fans. Relationship woes aside, we’re really here to talk about her style! Stepping out this week with Rob on her arm, the Grammy nominated singer chose a typically quirky patterned number, chunky boots and black ankle socks peeking out of the top. While our attempts at the pattern trend may be a little more dressed down that the singer herself, we’re big fans of her ankle socks, which are perfect for this time of year. Fashion-forward, easy to wear and affordable, check out our cream of the crop below.

Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks

From petal pulling to style savvy, cast your eyes over the Jonathan Aston He Loves Me Socks, covered in a handwritten script spelling out the famous ‘he loves me, he loves me not’ game. Complete with scallop tops and available in two delightful spring shades, there’s nothing better for updating a bland outfit.

With polkadots as popular as they’ve ever been, make sure your sock drawer is right in the thick of it with the Charnos Spot Ankle Highs. Opaque ankle highs with satin effect spots running throughout, they come in three colours and look great with summer skirts and skater dresses.

For ankle socks devotees, grab a pair in every colour thanks to the Trasparenze Marta 70D Ankle Highs. From classic black to the vibrant height of turquoise blue, these 70 denier ankle highs are purse-friendly and ideal for racking up the style points every spring/summer.

Consider yourself to be an old romantic? Show it with the Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklet, with their sheer base and amalgamation of opaque love hearts running throughout. As seen of Fearne Cotton herself, these are the sweetest thing we’ve ever laid our eyes on.

Bad Blood, Great Style

Taylor Swift - Wolford Stella Tights

Taylor in her Stella Tights

She’s only gone and done it again! Of course, we’re referring to Taylor Swift, or as we like to call her, ‘the best dressed legs in showbiz’, who this week premiered the new video for her latest single Bad Blood. Not only music to our ears but for our eyes too, the video was packed full of A-list faces, visual effects and most importantly, Wolford hosiery! The luxury Austrian brand clearly holds a special place in Taylor’s heart, choosing not one but two styles from their fabulous collection. In typical MyTights fashion, we have everything you need to recreate the look, stocking both of the styles worn in the video. So while you might not have her millions in the bank, her musical talent or celebrity friends, there’s no reason why you can’t enjoy the same legwear look as Swifty herself…

 

Wolford Stella Tights

Wolford Stella Tights

 

Geometric prints are everywhere at the moment, but if you needed any more excuses to try out the trend, follow Taylor’s lead and opt for the Wolford Stella Tights. These 20 denier sheers have a striking graphic side seam that runs up the leg and culminates in a chic sewn in band at stay up height. While Taylor glams hers up with a black mini, there’s no reason why they can’t be dressed down for the daytime, too. All you need is a pair of denim shorts and white long sleeved tee and you have a look that any pop princess would be proud of!

 

Taylor Swift - Wolford Individual 10 Stockings

And in the Individual 10 Stockings!

 

Not to be outdone, Taylor can also be spotted in the Wolford Individual 10 Stockings, which she paired with heeled boots and a skirt with a risqué front split. Packed full of the luxury features that Wolford customers are accustomed to, these silky soft stockings come with 6.5cm plain tops that gently hug your thighs without even a hint of pinching. Perfect with just about anything in your wardrobe and for any occasion, if they’re good enough for Taylor…

We don’t think it’ll be too long before Taylor’s hosiery is making the headlines again, so watch this space…

Laura’s Choice: Wedding Season!

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter

The wedding season is upon us! You’ve found THE dress, the best man has coiffed his speech to perfection, and your table decorations are everything you’ve ever dreamed of. Now all you need is some beautiful hosiery to match! Whether you’re the blushing bride, the hungover groom or the reluctant bridesmaid, MyTights.com have a fantastic selection of wedding hosiery to hand. From silk socks for guys through to the obligatory wedding day garter, we have just the thing to leave your legs looking their best on the special day. Now just to make sure you get to the church on time!

 

 

 

The Bride

Let’s face it, the bride is the centre of attention on every wedding day. With all eyes on your walk down the aisle, it’s vital that every inch of your look is perfect, including your hosiery! Looking for a classic bare leg look? The Wolford Transparency 10 Tights could be just the ticket. Appearing like you’ve braved bare legs, these 10 denier tights boast a beautifully natural finish and all the luxury features that Wolford are renowned for. And what’s more, with their lightweight finish, you won’t overheat no matter how long the train on your dress!

Or if you want something a little more romantic as you say your vows, check out the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Hold Ups, with a sumptuous lace effect and vintage backseam. For those of you who embrace all of the age-old traditions with gusto, the Trasparenze Aurora Bridal Garter is a must. Staying in place no matter how many pictures you pose for, the lace and ribbon effect makes for a fabulous finishing touch to your gown.

The Bridal Party

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Upstaging the bride may be the ultimate wedding day sin, but that doesn’t mean the bridal party can’t look their best. For a rear that even bridesmaid extraordinaire Pippa Middleton would be proud of, how about trying out the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘butt-lets’ that slot into pockets and give your derriere a lift! For mothers of the bride, it has to be the Aristoc Ultimate 5D Sheer Tights. Offering a ‘no hosiery’ look but with failsafe LYCRA® Fusion technology, your legs will not only look flawless, but remain free from ladders from the ceremony to the after-party. If your dress is on the plain side, what better way to take your style up a notch than with the elegant Oroblu Adelle Tights? Covered in an array of dainty dots, these patterned gems are not only on trend but have a sheer to waist brief, meaning any length of hemline can work.

For the guests 

Whether it’s a distant cousin or a work colleague, looking fabulous for a wedding is a must! The great thing about being a guest rather than playing a part in a wedding is that you can really experiment with different kind of hosiery to accessorize your dress. One such way to do that is with seams, and, getting into the wedding spirit, we love the Pamela Mann Love Seam Tights. These 15 denier sheers have a slender backseam culminating in the word ‘LOVE’ etched on each ankle – how romantic! Or how about opting for a pair of fishnet tights? For something a little different to the norm, make a beeline for the Charnos Honeycomb Net Tights with a fine mesh fabric resembling honeycomb itself. Another perk of being a guest is that you needn’t worry about showing yourself up on the dance floor. Heels aren’t always forgiving, so make sure your feet stay refreshed with a pair of the Levante Shoe Monkeys Foot Cushions, taking the pressure away from your feet.

The Groom

 

Falke Tiago Men's Short Socks

Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks

Because it’s not all about the bride! Believe it or not, the groom plays a fairly big part in the day too, so it’s important they look suitably dapper. For a classic wedding day look, grab a pair of the Falke Tiago Men’s Short Socks, made with 98% cotton for a beautifully soft finish and keeping your feet cool all day long. Or if you’re the kind of guy who likes to experiment with fashion, the Happy Socks Men’s Socks Gift Box should be your port of call. With four funky socks (spots, stripes and everything in between), the hardest part will be choosing which pair to sport on the big day.

With wedding pictures set to take pride of place on your mantelpiece, you’ll want to look as trim as possible. With that in mind, invest in the Spanx For Men range. Flattening your stomach, firming the chest and even improving your posture, simply layer beneath your suit and you’re good to go.

 

Have a fantastic day!

That’s what we call a shimmering success, Miley!

Miley Cyrus

Miley Cyrus

Leaving her wrecking ball at home for the day, Miley Cyrus this week stepped out in a pair of tights that more than appealed to our inner magpie. While the 22 year old star usually finds herself at the top of the ‘worst dressed list’, she’s clearly been taking style advice from somewhere, mastering the trend for metallic with her gold sparkly tights. Okay, so we’re not so keen on the rest of her outfit. In fact we’d go as far as saying we hate it, but with legwear like that, who cares?! Perfect for parties and as seen on the likes of Alexa Chung, sparkly tights are enjoying a fashion moment of late, and in typical MyTights fashion, there’s no reason why anyone need miss out.

Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights

Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights

For a copycat look (minus that garish jacket, we hope), opt for the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights. Available in silver as well as gorgeous gold, these footless fancies were once spotted on the legs of Fearne Cotton herself, which comes as no surprise to us. Catching the light and a must have for the party season, you can also wear peep toe heels should you wish!

Iff something a little less dramatic is your preference, take a look at the Trasparenze Deejay Tights, covered in subtle metallic flecks. Admittedly not as eye catching as Miley’s, these semi opaque tights are understated enough to be worn in the day as well as the night. Or if you want to combine your adoration for all things polkadot with sparkle, the Pamela Mann Sparkly Gold Spot Tights are a must, covered in embellished spots that cover the entire leg. Who knew a glamorous look could cost under a tenner?

It’s not only tights that have been given the embellished treatment either. For a pair of razzle dazzle socks, we love the Jonathan Aston Perfect Pellerine Socks, which have a lurex thread running throughout to gently catch the light as you strut your stuff.

Miley, you’re learning! Check out our entire range of sparkle and high shine hosiery before you leave.

Bye Dave! Tina Fey flashes Spanx

Tina Fey has never been one to blend into the crowd, has she? The Mean Girls actress certainly isn’t afraid to get people talking, and that’s exactly what she did this week when appearing on The Late Show with David Letterman. Declaring her love for the popular chat show host, the actress quite literally gave him the dress off her back, unzipping her blue dress to commemorate his last ever episode in the hotseat. Revealing a hilarious bodice with ‘Bye Dave’ emblazoned across the front, her Spanx shaping suit was visible for all to see!

Tina Fey

Tina Fey

We love it when celebrities are open about wearing Spanx; after all, who doesn’t need a little shaping support from time to time? It’s reassuring to know that even high-profile celebrities like Fey turn to Spanx when they need a little help getting into a dress, and with the wedding season in full swing, we thought we’d round up our favourite shape to ensure you look fabulous in your new summer dresses.

Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body

Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body

If you crave some all over shaping support à la Fey, opt for the Spanx Shape My Day Open Bust Mid Thigh Body. A new addition to the Spanx range, this super slimming bodysuit uses seamless zones for the most discreet and comfortable fit yet, banishing your wobbly bits and coming without any material at the bust, meaning you can wear your own bra. If it’s just your tummy that needs a little taming, have a look at the Spanx Higher Power – New & Slimproved. The name speaks for itself, with these strong control panties using amped up tummy panels to flatten your midriff in secrecy.

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts

 

 

Is your derriere in need of a boost? We love the Spanx Slimplicity Booty Booster Shorts, which come with optional ‘buttlets’ to slot into your rear to give you a rear that even Kim Kardashian would envy. If your hips are your problem zone, take a look at the Spanx Shape My Day Girl Short, again utilizing seamless sections to ensure long-lasting comfort. Smoothing over your tummy and hip area, these shaping shorts also come with a 360° seamless waistband for a light as a feather feel.

Whatever your insecurity, Spanx has something to suit. Tina Fey, we salute you!

Celebrities LOVE hosiery: Get The Look!

Just like waiting for a bus, we’ve been waiting days to spot another fabulous celebrity hosiery look, and then three come along at once! From other sides of the globe and all choosing to wear hosiery in their own individual way, we bring you a round-up of celebrity looks, and how YOU can recreate them at the drop of a hat.

Iggy Azalea

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Oroblu Lysette Overknees

Beginning with Australian rapper Iggy Azalea, the 24 year old isn’t always known for her fashion choices, but that all changed this week when we laid eyes on these images, shot for a 100th birthday special of iconic underwear label Bonds. While we may not opt for an outfit quite so risqué, we fell hook, line and sinker for her grey over the knee socks. Boasting a classic ribbed design and with extra-wide black tops for a chic contrast, we think they look great with her heeled biker boots. What do you think? If you love her look as much as us, treat yourself to the Oroblu Lysette Over Knees, with the same ribbed finish and wide band. Or if you want to copy her look down to the colour, check out the Trasparenze Dora Wool Rib Over Knee Socks in Asfalto!

 

Charlotte Crosby

Charlotte Crosby

Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings

From an internationally acclaimed rapper to everyones favourite George Shore hellraiser, we spotted Celebrity Big Brother winner Charlotte Crosby on the streets of London in a funky pair of patterned leggings. We love fashion leggings at MyTights – there really is nothing better for brightening up your basic pieces. Charlotte clearly agrees, teaming her marvel inspired leggings with an oversized jumper and white trainers. To get your hands on a similarly fun look, check out the Pamela Mann Fleur de Lis Leggings, covered in the fleur de lis prints for a regal feel. Or take things back to your childhood with the Pamela Mann Sweeties Leggings, covered in an assortment of retro sweets that you can enjoy without having to worry about your figure.

 

Tallulah Willis

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Last but not least, we simply had to comment on this adorable look from Tallulah Willis. Having been raised by Demi Moore, the 21 year old was always going to know a thing or two about looking good, and this ensemble more than caught our eye. Bridging the gap between a dressed down vibe and statement appeal, she tucked a denim shirt with a suede skater skirt, finishing the look with sheer black tights and sparkly ankle socks. A stellar performance if we say so herself, recreate the look with the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights and the Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks, a combination that’s bound to make you a style star. Or if ankle socks aren’t for you, layer the Pretty Polly Sparkle Rib Over The Knee Socks over your sheers for a similar shimmer.

 

We can’t keep up – it’s a hosiery takeover. Keep checking back for more celebrity looks soon!

The Apprentice runner-up strikes back!

You may remember last autumn that MyTights founder Laura became a small screen star for the day, appearing as a member of the panel for The Apprentice final. The would be business venture in question? Tights, of course, with finalist Bianca Miller proposing a range of sheer tights that catered to every skin tone. Whilst we were thrilled that Laura was asked to assert her hosiery know-how to help Lord Sugar make his final decision, Bianca narrowly missed out on the prize, which instead went to Mark Wright with his (far less interesting) digital marketing platform.

Impressed by how composed Bianca was in her all-important presentation, we knew that wouldn’t be the last we saw of the entrepreneur and her aptly named ‘’True Skin’’ range, and it appears we were right. This week, it was announced that, undeterred by Lord Sugar’s rejection, Bianca is attempting to gain the capital needed to kickstart her venture through crowd funding. It was also revealed that Lord Sugar hasn’t given up hope of trying his luck in the hosiery market altogether, with Bianca claiming that there has been ‘email correspondence’ between the two.

Originally conceived as a high-end product, Bianca clearly took the advice offered to her by the panel of experts seriously. Launching in October, the brand will now be aimed at a high street market, with prices starting at as little as £8.99 a pair. Promising sheer tights for every spectrum on the skin tone range, we suggest you watch this space, and we wouldn’t be too surprised to see Bianca’s name cropping up again here in the near future…

If you can’t wait that long, we already have a range of fabulous ultra-sheer and bare leg look tights to match your skin tone, including our newest brand Nubian Skin, with four distinct shades aimed specifically at darker complexions!

Laura’s Choice – Footless and Fancy Free!

Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights

Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights

As much as a life without our opaques doesn’t bear thinking about, we can’t help but thinking that it’s high time that we switched to a more summery alternative. Footloose and fancy free, footless tights are the perfect solution. Meaning you can seek solace from the chilly mornings and show off your summer sandals at the same time, footless tights are brilliant for pulling off a relaxed daytime vibe, or adding some effortless cool to your party looks. Finer than leggings and available in every colour of the rainbow, we’re here to let you in on all of our footless style secrets to ensure your summer style goes off without a hitch…

The wallet warriors

At this time of year, most of us are busily saving for a last minute holiday in the sun, so it makes sense to save the pennies while we can. Proving that a fabulous footless style needn’t cost the earth, stocking up on the Pamela Mann 3D Footless Tights is a must. Leaving you with change leftover from a fiver, these 50 denier lovelies are thick enough to cover your legs, without overheating should a summer heatwave take hold (unlikely, I know!) Wondering what the reference to 3D in the title means? Thanks to innovative elastic fibres, these footless tights have a generous stretch that will move alongside your legs, as well as adding a dash of durability and leading to a beautifully even appearance. Oh, and with 16 colours in the mix, all of your outfits can join in on the fun!

Especially for fuller figured beauties, flatter your curves in the Pamela Mann 50D Plus Size Footless Tights, again just £4.99 a pair and accommodating for dress sizes up to a UK 28-32. While we live in hope that this summer will bring some longed for warmth, they also come in an 80 denier version for the extra chilly days.

The secret saviours

Any of you who regularly read our blog will know we love hosiery with hidden benefits. After all, who doesn’t want as much from their money as possible? With the mercury rising, I have to point you in the direction of the Pretty Polly Coolsense Footless Tights. While you may fool the outside world into thinking these are any old pair of footless tights, they’re actually made from Nilit Breeze yarns. None the wiser? Considerably smoother and lighter than other footless styles, the innovative yarns mean that you’ll always stay at least 1◦c cooler than usual, keeping you feeling lovely refreshed – even after a mad dash for the bus! Or if the thought of tomorrow mornings spin class fills you with dread, iron out your lumps and bumps the easy way with the Spanx In Power Line Super Footless Shaper. Strong control shaping shorts with inbuilt 15 denier footless tights, your body insecurities aren’t going to hang around for much longer!

Country Kids Capri Tights

Country Kids Capri Tights

The fashion favourites

Basic styles are a key part of every wardrobe, but for events where only glamour will suffice, take a look at the Pamela Mann Lurex Highball Footless Tights. As seen on Fearne Cotton, these fabulous footless tights are covered in shimmering glitter. Packed full of wow factor and destined for parties, your inner disco diva can choose between silver and gold sparkle depending on your style preference.

Paying homage to the trend for patterns and prints, another of my top picks are the Trasparenze Graphium Leggings. Coming in at a 40 denier, these decorative leggings are covered in an ornamental paisley print to rack up the style points. Or if you’re forever falling under the charms of lace, opt for the Oroblu Sherry Leggings, new for SS15 and coming with a sumptuous floral lace effect against a tulle base.

Does coloured hosiery makes you go weak at the knees? Stocking up on the Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings is a must. Whether you wow in white or thrill in fuchsia pink, these 70 denier leggings are perfect for pairing with summer tunics and brightening your look. If you don’t want your daughter to be green with envy, treat her to the Country Kids Capri Tights, with 10 summery shades and sizes ranging from 3 years all the way up to 11.

Footless styles are chic, effortless and ready to kickstart your summer wardrobe. Now, if only locating my summery sandals was this easy…

Our full range of footless styles are worth a look!

Celebrity Style: Over the Knee Socks!

Celebrity Looks

Celebrity Looks

Although this week may suggest otherwise, the month of May means that summer is well and truly on its way. At last, we hear you say. But before you shed off the winter layers in a frenzy, it’s not quite warm enough to opt for bare legs. This would lead most people to opt for sheers or semi-opaques, but the MyTights team have noticed another trend sweeping the nation of late – over the knee socks! Giving the perfect compromise between keeping you snug and a fashion-forward look, it’s not just us ordinary folk who have been swept up in the trend, with a host of celebrities also jumping aboard. Spotted on the streets, Little Mix’s Jade Thirlwall was last week papped in a flirty yellow plaid skirt and black over-the-knee socks for a  casual ensemble that we adored. Meanwhile across the pond, Megan Fox was spotted during filming for her new film donning a sexy blue plaid skirt and completing her look with yep, you guessed it; over the knee socks. Want your own piece of the action? Here’s how…

Khloe Kardashian: Get The Look

Khloe Kardashian

Khloe Kardashian

Whether you can’t get enough of their fly on the wall way of life or wish they’d disappear off the face of the Earth, the Kardashian clan always grab our attention when it comes to their fashion choices. Whilst it’s usually Kim who takes the limelight, we recently spotted younger sister Khloe (with the obligatory K, of course) on the streets of London in a particularly vampy pair of thigh-high boots. Open in the centre and fastened with an eye-catching lace up-design, Khloe’s look certainly turned heads, but as unique as it was, there’s no denying that thigh high leather boots are probably a little risqué for us mere mortals.

Oroblu Janis Over Knees

Oroblu Janis Over Knees

That doesn’t mean you can’t emulate her look however, and we have just the way with the Oroblu Janis Over Knees. New for SS15, these 70 denier socks are certainly not for wallflowers, that’s for sure, with an alluring sheer panel running up the centre, complete with a mock lace up design. Perfect for bringing out your inner vixen from behind the shadows, these will look gorgeous either teamed with a skater dress and heeled boots for a night on the dance floor, or with denim shorts and a simple tee for a daytime fling.

Fans of alternative fashion, take note! You may not be a Kardashian, but with these in your repertoire, you may find yourself attracting just as many double-glances!

Not the style for you? Why not check out all of the socks from the Oroblu SS15 range?
