Swifty in Suspender Tights!

Selena & Taylor

Selena & Taylor

 

A week without Taylor Swift cropping up somewhere in our hosiery blog doesn’t happen very often. Considered (by us at least) to have the best dressed legs in showbiz, the pop superstar has done it again, wearing a pair of gorgeous suspender tights on stage during her acclaimed 1989 tour. Having performed with everyone from Little Mix to none other than Lisa Kudrow (Phoebe from Friends between me and you) as part of her tour, the star celebrated the final leg of her world adventure with none other than best pal Selena Gomez. Pairing her suspenders with thigh high black boots and an embellished white two piece, she was also spotted mouthing ‘I love you’ to DJ boyfriend Calvin Harris…

Anyway, back to her tights! We loved Swifty’s look so much, we’ve been busy compiling out favourite suspender styles ever since in our bid to mirror her outfit. Giving the same look as stockings without the hassle of clips and garter belts, cue our top mock suspenders…

Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights

Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights

Cheating your way to chic, the hosiery world went mad for Henry Holland’s Super Suspender Tights a few years back, and their popularity doesn’t look set to fall any time soon. Worn by countless celebrities and offering a classic look, these 40 denier tights have a 20 denier sheer panel at the top and printed straps to mirror a stockings style. For a similar look with a little added luxury, also take a look at the Charnos Boudoir Lace Suspender Tights, which come with an exquisite lace panel to give your look a last minute splash of sophistication.

Always like to go for something slightly different? For fishnet fans, the Aristoc Mock Suspender Fishnet Tights should be your priority, with a classic net base and lace effect mock hold up tops at thigh height. On a similar note, last week we welcomed the Trasparenze AW15 fashion into our HQ, and the Eliodoro Tights were amongst our favourites. Featuring striped panels printed with spots, these mock suspenders will update outfits in an instant, and come with a printed panty for extra elegance.

Emma Roberts in sheer anklets!

Emma Roberts

Emma Roberts

 

She’s the niece of Julia Roberts and an up and coming film star in her own right, so it goes without saying that Emma Roberts would have her own personal sense of style. And it appears she’s inherited her famous aunt’s impeccable dress sense too, stepping out across the pond in this gorgeous monochrome ensemble. Pairing a chic black and white mini dress with heeled sandals, the star of the show for us were her gorgeous sheer ankle socks, which added a rock chick touch to her look. Don’t think you need a Hollywood budget to mirror her gorgeous outfit either – as MyTights are on hand with our collection of copy cat ankle socks!

Falke Shelina Anklets

Falke Shelina Anklets

For a particularly similar pair, head to the Falke Shelina Anklets in Black, or the Levante Ritz Anklets in Nero, both of which have a sheer weight and simple appearance. But if you’re keen to inject some pattern into an otherwise plain look, it has to be the Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklet, which have a series of opaque love hearts to send hearts a flutter and bring out your inner romantic. For something equally chic, the Trasparenze Argo Socks have a gorgeous floral lace effect and are perfect for taking a day outfit into the evening.

Or if the weather means that something a little thicker is in order, the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks have always been a firm favourite of ours, and come with a host of brighter colours as well as black.

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!
