Nicole Kidman: Favourite fashion trend of all time? Black Tights…

Nicole Kidman

Nicole Kidman

 

She’s the latest cover star for Vogue and is known worldwide for a gorgeously timeless style. So when it comes to talking about fashion, we believe pretty much every word that comes from Nicole Kidman’s mouth. Questioned by Vogue about what she considers her favourite fashion trend of all times, we were waiting with open ears – but the girl who has everything didn’t reply with diamonds, she didn’t even reply with designer names. Instead, the Australian actress divulged that her can’t live without item are nothing less than a pair of everyday black tights! Which got us thinking, if a fashion icon such as Nicole is hooked on her trusty black tights, it’s about time we rounded up our favourites.

Well, if it’s good enough for Nicole…

Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights

Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights

Everyday opaques: Every woman needs that pair of black opaques they can turn to no matter the occasion. And thanks to fashion favourites Pamela Mann and their 50 Denier Tights, it needn’t break the bank. For just £4.95 a pair, these affordable tights boast a slight sheen finish and are made with 3D elastane for a perfect fit.

Everyday sheers: Blighty weather is unpredictable at the best of times, so it goes without saying that a pair of black sheers is just as important as opaques. Great for wearing during the warmer weather, we love the Aristoc Ultra Shine 10D Tights, with a glossy finish that will take you from day to night.

Something in between: Semi-opaque styles are perfect for that tricky in between weather when your wardrobe doesn’t know whether to stay in winter mode or peel back the layers into winter. Our favourites are the Oroblu Sensuel 30 Tights, which come in 7 shades and are virtually indestructible thanks to their reinforced toe and quality Italian design.

Helping you out: We all look for an excuse not to go the gym, and we’ve got just the ticket with the Calvin Klein Ultra Fit 50D Shaper Tights. Looking just like an ordinary pair of opaques, they come with a hidden medium strength control panel to tame your problem zones in secrecy.

Nicole, we think you might be our new hosiery BFF!

Shiny Opaques: If they’re good enough for Balmain…

If we were pushed to name a list of the most high fashion brands on the market, Balmain find themselves towards the top of our list every time. Famed for extravagance and always knowing how to make a style statement, their latest shoot for Vogue caught our eye for all the right reasons. Not only is their new collection gorgeously intricate and colourful, it also features an abundance of tights!

Gigi and Bella Hadid

Gigi and Bella Hadid

 

With the editorial celebrating the unconditional love of siblings, we also haven’t mentioned that the models were none other than sister acts of the moment Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall and Kylie Jenner and Joan and Erika Smalls. Now that’s what we call a fashion-forward family affair! Our favourite look was that of Gigi and Bella, who teamed embellished pieces in shades of red, deep purple and golds with sky high heels and shiny black opaque tights. Now, we can’t promise that you’ll find dresses as luxurious as this on the high street, but there’s no reason why you can’t mirror their legwear at MyTights. Cue our top five shiny opaques…

Wolford Satin de Luxe Tights

Wolford Satin de Luxe Tights

1) For the closest look to the sisters themselves, opt for the Wolford Satin de Luxe Tights, which combine a very shiny finish with sheer to waist briefs and the kind of luxury features that make Wolford, well… Wolford!

2) Not to be outdone, another great pick are the Falke Seidenglatt Tights, slightly less shiny than the Satin de Luxe but perfect for adding some glamour to evening looks but still remaining understated.

3) If you’re after something in a lower denier for warmer days, head to Falke again and their Pure Shine 40 Tights, which come in five shades and are ideal for glossy evening events.

4) On a budget? Don’t fret, as the Jonathan Aston Gloss Opaque Tights allow you to look glam without breaking the bank, thanks to a high shine finish, 60 denier weight and contoured effect.

5) Want to hide blemishes and skin imperfections? The Wolford Neon 40 Tights are for you, offering a shiny finish and 40 denier durability, but appearing like a 20 denier.

Oh Kimye! Here’s where you went wrong…

kim-k-hold-ups-2Now we don’t know about you, but when it comes to being styled, Kanye West wouldn’t be anywhere near the top of our list. Like we needed any proof that letting your husband style you was a bad idea, Kimye this week took  it to a whole new level with their recently published photo portfolio titled Kanye, Juergen and Kim. It is reported that the Yeezus singer styled his wife for the (quite frankly bonkers) outdoor shoot – where Kim wears a nude bodysuit with black hold ups and extra tall black stilettos, sprawled over what appears to be a giant heep of dirt. Right…. Now, while we aren’t expecting anyone to run to the shops to mirror her look, Kanye might have been onto something with certain elements of her look.

 

 

Starting with her black hold ups (something we very much approve of), achieve a similar look to Kim with the Oroblu Bas Chic Up 15 Denier Hold Ups. These hold ups benefit from a chic 15 denier base, reinforced toe and give you a chic look, minus the  construction machinery, open fields, and a pile of dirt!bas-chic-hold-up spanx-tank-fullslip-main

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Next is the nude bodysuit. Now we don’t want you walking out of the house with just the bodysuit on – maybe someone should have told Kanye that shapewear goes under our clothes! But as well as giving you fabulous shaping control, shaping suits can look chic when layered with pencil skirts and dresses. Go for the Spanx Trust Your Thinstincts Tank Full Slip in Nude to nail the look.

Now it is time to fill in the missing pieces! Pair the bodysuit with a form fitting black pencil skirt and high heeled boots. Trade the star’s metallic gold brazier for a different accent item such as a gold clutch or necklace.

Now THAT’S where you went wrong, Kanye!

Throwback Thursday to the 1960s!

TwiggyThis week our Throwback Thursday is dedicated to the fashion icon that is Twiggy! The 60’s was all about expressing yourself in terms of fashion, and this extended to your legwear. It was out with the dated knee length numbers and in with miniskirts, vibrant colours and testing the boundaries of style. Twiggy was renowned for her colourful tights and wearing extravagant patterns, and with 60’s style coming back in an abundance this season, we thought we’d round up our favourite coloured tights for you to nail the trend, and show you just how easy they are to wear. While a more conservative colour palette may be best for the office, after hours is your time to embrace a more playful persona. From weekend lunches to nights out with the girls, here’s our one stop guide to getting coloured tights right!

Screen Shot 2015-07-09 at 2.30.47 PMColoured tights can be worn in a number of ways depending on your style preference. If you prefer a more uniformed look, Twiggy was known to pair her tights with a matching colour ensemble. But to stand out from the crowd, she also loved to wear coloured tights with a contrasting colour for a real statement look. Here are our top 5 coloured picks: Pamela Mann Opaques in (1) Flo Orange (2)Flo Yellow and (3)Flo Green (4)Velvet Green Jonathon Aston Opaques and (5) Berry Jonathon Aston Sheers!

Hosiery: This weeks looks!

Despite the sweltering temperatures we’ve been having, it hasn’t stopped the stars turning to hosiery to complete their looks. While we’d forgive anyone for going bare legged in the 35°C we endured this week, it seems that hosiery is still very much on the agenda, so we’ve rounded up our favourite styles from the last week, and shown you how you can recreate them in an instant.

 

Hilary Duff

Trasparenze Graphium Leggings

Trasparenze Graphium Leggings

Beginning with Hilary Duff, the 27 year actress come singer is slowly developing into a new hosiery hero for us, having already been snapped in fishnets just a few weeks back. Now for mere mortals, a day running errands usually means an altogether unflattering outfit, but not Hilary, who pulled out a fabulous pair of patterned leggings for a trip to the dry cleaners. Pairing her leggings with a statement tee, trainers and a fresh face, the look radiated effortless cool, and we loved how her leggings introduced geometric prints in to her outfit. Want to copy her look? A great option are the Trasparenze Graphium Leggings, with a colourful paisley print and choice of two colours. Perfect for wearing with summery vests and longline tees when the temperatures rise. But if you wanted something that makes even more of a statement, the Fleur De Lis Leggings from Pamela Mann are a must, with their flower of the lily print and slight sheen finish.

 

Sophie Dahl

Now for a very different look from former fashion model Sophie Dahl, who last night turned out at the star studded Serpentine Gallery bash. With attendees including Kate Hudson, Lara Stone and Fearne Cotton, the crown for our style star went to Sophie, who teamed a sixties style spotty minidress with peep toe heeled boots and black fishnet tights. Giving her sweet dress a rock chick twist, mirror her look with the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights in black, opting for the brighter shades if you’re feeling experimental. Or for fishnets with a difference, check out the Oroblu April Tights, which combine an alluring side seam with tricot effect.

Stay tuned for more celeb looks!

Its festival season and you can always count on Alexa Chung to know exactly what to wear to pull off the perfect boho look, mud included! This weekend was no different, being spotted at Glastonbury with her pals in a pair of black opaque tights, along with a double denim ensemble and olive green parka. Paired with the obligatory black Hunter boots, the TV presenter turned model looked fab and showed us all that it’s possible to look great after 5 days cramped in a tent! The best part about this look is you don’t need to be Alexa Chung or attend a festival to wear it. Simple, functional yet brimming with appeal, here’s how you can recreate her look at MyTights.com.
