New Ways to Wear Your Tights

Are you someone who wears the same 7 skirt/dress and tights combinations through the winter because of your limited scope of outfits that keep you warm? We at MyTights love finding innovative ways to wear our favourite tights, especially when it inspires us to change up our bland, everyday winter wardrobes. Through much internet browsing (and Pinterest hunting) I have compiled the perfect list of ways to change up your boring opaques-skirt combination and try some daring new outfit ideas.

  1. Lace/Patterned Tights + Ripped Jeans > This look has been all over the ‘Pinterest-sphere’ as a new, updated way to wear ripped jeans without looking like a slob. To achieve this look, simply wear your favourite pair of lace tights or patterned tights under your ripped jeans. Some of my favourite tights to pair with this look are the Jonathan Aston Sweet Roses Lace Tights, Trasparenze Sitar Tights, and Jonathan Aston Katusha Tights.
  2. Tights + Shorts > Dig up your shorts out of the bottom of your closets, ladies! Many Bloggers and Celebs alike have been using this trend to keep their summer wardrobe lasting through the cold winter months. Denim or printed, any shorts may be used for this trend. Plus, literally any pair of tights you may have lying around can be used. Pair some opaque tights with your printed shorts to channel your inner fashionista, or go for the causal denim shorts look with any pair of tights you desire.
  3. Tights as Pants > Okay, okay I know this is a hard NO in the moral fashion world… but hear me out. I’m not asking you to go literal with this trend and have your bottom fully exposed à la Rihanna or Lady Gaga. Pair a large, oversized t-shirt or flannel (that covers your bottom, of course!) with a thick pair of opaque tights. This look is both comfortable and when accessorized correctly, looks fabulous as well. Looking fabulous AND comfortable is never as easy thing to achieve… so try this look out! I promise the general public will not judge your ‘tights as pants’ choice.
  4. Over The Knee Socks > Please tell me I am not the only person obsessed with this look! Thigh high socks are back in trend, and they’re here to hopefully stay. Pair these socks with anything you’d usually wear tights with – dresses, shorts. skirts- and you will understand the obsession. This look may not keep you as warm as tights do (disclaimer), but the little bit of exposed skin is very much worth the updated look. Plus! If you get cold, layer a pair of sheer tights underneath your socks for that little bit of added warmth… it looks just as wonderful.

So throw out your usual rotation of winter outfits and change things up with these new, and different outfit ideas.

Oh Miley! How To Recreate Mileys Unorthodox Legwear Look

Queen of controversy, global pop sensation Miley Cyrus sure knows how to get people talking, doesn’t she? And it appears that any publicity is good publicity, as recent week have seen the Wrecking Ball singer taking the internet by storm with her new advert for Italian hosiery brand Golden Lady. Wearing next-to-nothing, the 21 year old danced to her new single Get It Right alongside a giant stuffed teddy bear (we don’t understand the link, either!), looking as if she was having a fabulous time in her pink sheer tights. However, as fans of Miley have come to expect, it’s never that straightforward, with the star then proceeding to rip the teddy bear into shreds, before a series of legwear changes and more, quite frankly odd, frolicking. Despite the strange concept, our eyes were of course drawn to her tights, and plenty of tights there were, with candy pink sheers, black sheers, and bright red opaques all taking centre stage!

watch?v=hDFzVR6gVzY

If you want to recreate Miley’s legwear look, a great starting point are the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights. As well as being available in vibrant fuschia, these 15 denier tights also come in 18 other shades – every colour of the rainbow! Or for a softer pink, the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights have a candy pink option, which is great when you want something a little more understated, yet retaining a flirty edge.

A real capsule piece, every woman should own a pair of classic black sheers. Timeless and elegant, they’re a permanent fixture on the catwalk, and a firm favourite amongst numerous of our style crushes, namely Kate Middleton! While Miley’s look admittedly isn’t as polished as Kate’s, there’s no denying her black sheers looked great. To channel this look without breaking the bank, we love the Pretty Polly Nylons, with their 10 denier leg and super shiny finish – perfect for a glamorous evening look! Or if you want something a little more luxurious, opt for refined quality of the Wolford Individual 10 Tights – the epitome of elegance.

Last but not least, we loved Miley’s red opaque look. Coloured hosiery is a great way to jazz up a tired wardrobe favourite, and good news – MyTights has a fantastic selection of red tights to choose from. The pick of the bunch are the Falke Cotton Touch Tights, which are lined with cotton for super-snug pins. Or for something a little more affordable, head to everyday favourites Pamela Mann!

Hats off to you Miley!

Another week, another blog about the legwear choices of global pop sensation Taylor Swift. This is becoming a bit of a habit, isn’t it? We know, we know… she no doubt has an array of stylists tending to her every move, but we’ve rarely come across a celebrity who manages to get it right as often as Taylor. This week, she was papped leaving the Cath Kidston store in Covent Garden in a lace roll neck jumper, tartan skirt and the pièce de résistance (for us at least), a pair of stripy sheer tights. The MyTights team have been cooing over her legwear ever since the photos hit the press earlier this week, and for good reason. Stripy tights are a fabulous way to update a tired outfit, and even better, if you opt for vertical stripes, they have a real leg lengthening quality, creating the illusion of never-ending pins.

Pretty in Polkadots: How You Can Recreate Anne Hathaways Legwear Look

Les Miserables star Anne Hathaway seems to have an endless supply of unfeasibly chic outfits in her repertoire, doesn’t she? The nicest lady in Hollywood, and all round style icon, this week stepped out in a fabulously chic outfit, on a rare break from her week of non-stop press for latest film Interstellar. Teaming her V-neck blouse with statement jewellery and a velvet mini, the real star of the show was undoubtedly her legwear; an elegant pair of sheer polkadot tights, which have been causing quite the stir in MyTights HQ.

Polkadot tights are a super-cute and playful alternative to standard hosiery when you want to add some interest to an otherwise plain outfit.  A key fixture on the catwalks in recent years, polkadot tights can work seamlessly from day to play, and have adorned the legs of countless celebrities in recent years. Not wanting to name drop, you’ll be in the sartorial company of the likes of Alexa Chung, Cheryl Fernandes-Versini and Diane Kruger. Not bad, huh? The good news is that there really is something for everyone, so regardless of your style, occasion or budget, you’re bound to find the perfect pair for you!

If you want to add some personality to your work wardrobe, the Oroblu Adelle Tights are a great choice, with their pretty polkadots and reinforced toe, making them the ideal legwear for everyday use. For the colder weather, look no further than the Wolford Alyssia Tights, which feature an array of tiny holes to show off a subtle glimpse of skin. What’s more, with their 40 denier finish, they’ll also ensure your legs are protected from the winter chill!

Ideal for a lunch with the girls, we love the Wolford Rice Dot Tights, with their multitude of raised dots and textured appearance. Giving your pins a high-end look, team with a cute day dress and heeled ankle boots for maximum impact. Or if you’re looking for spotty hosiery for a day’s retail therapy, look no further than the Pretty Polly Spot Opaque Tights. A real winter warmer with their 100 denier finish, these grey tights have a black polkadot pattern running throughout – opt for black denim shorts and a chunky knit and voila…a perfect polkadot look for the winter!

Polkadots can form part of your evening ensemble too. For something super glam, we recommend the Charnos Lurex Spot Opaque Tights, which are covered in tiny embellished spots for a stand out look – crying out to be worn to a special occasion!

Delightfully dotty fashion for all! Check out our entire range of polkadot inspired hosiery before you go!

Embrace Your Opaques: Why Bare Legs in Winter Are a No

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights

After months of cutting back on the carbs and ensuring our pins are hair-free and beautifully moisturised, winter is finally here. At last – time to lean back, reach for the biscuit tin and embrace our opaque tights, right? Well, if the recent legwear choices of high-profile celebrities are anything to go by, wrong. It would seem that winter warming opaques and wool tights are out, in favour of natural bare legs, with The Daily Mail reporting that the likes of Victoria Beckham and Suki Waterhouse at the forefront of this, quite frankly, ludicrous trend. The MyTights team have been shaking their heads in disbelief ever since hearing rumours of this fad. Sure, bare legs are fine for A-list celebrities with a chauffeur on standby and the money to spend on daily trips to the beauty salon. But what about us normal folk who crave warm legs on our commute to the office? And why wouldn’t we want to take advantage of the wonderfully chic winter legwear on offer? To convince you all that wrapping up warm is the way to go, we’ve compiled a list of the most stylish thick and winter tights around!

  1. Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights – at their best teamed with denim shorts and a cable knit jumper, these stylish matte tights are available in a range of hot colours and have a 55% wool composition, for the toastiest pins around. So on-trend that Cara Delevigne was recently seen on the front cover of Harper’s Bazaar in a similar pair! Well, if I must…
  2. Oroblu Miracle Tights – cute plaid print meets winter warmer with these 80 denier fashion tights from Oroblu. Ideal for jumping on board to the heritage trend, opt for these if you’re looking for cosy and stand out hosiery to take you from day to play.
  3. Wolford Zip Tights adding new dimensions to the meaning of fashion statement, these Wolford tights are a revamp of the classic Wolford De Luxe 66, given a maximum impact makeover thanks to a stunning zip embellishment that runs from the ankle to mid thigh!

Snug As A Bug: How To Wear Wool Tights

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights

Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights

Like her or loathe her, there’s no denying that supermodel Cara Delevingne has a huge influence on the fashion world. Rarely a day goes by when the supermodel isn’t making the headlines, and with media interest like that, it’s no surprise that brands and publications alike are fighting over the current fashion darling. Last month saw Cara gracing the cover page of W Magazine looking typically stunning, wearing a black velvet dress and chic white wool tights. We love wool hosiery here at MyTights, and it may only be October, but her legwear made us feel (and we say this begrudgingly) kind of Christmassy.

No longer considered outdated or frumpy, wool tights are a fashion forward and practical option, and if Cara’s wearing them, you don’t need us to tell you that they’re everywhere this autumn/winter! With colder temperatures set to hit in the coming weeks, wool tights will keep your pins fashionably snug, and often blended with cashmere, merino wool and angora, luxuriously soft to boot. Here are some top tips to get it right:

  • Wool tights come in a plain knit or with a ribbed texture – opt for a plain knit if the rest of your outfit is quite busy, but if your outfit is fairly plain, a ribbed finish is great for adding texture and interest to your look!
  • For an effortless daytime look that will work time and time again, team with a pair of simple denim shorts and a knitted jumper.
  • Or if you love the warmth of wool but need inspiration on how to dress them up, team with a loose fitting tunic, thin waist belt, heeled ankle boots and lashings of jewellery!

If you’re after a pair of practical wool tights to wear to the office, we recommend the Falke Soft Merino Wool Tights, which are available in a variety of autumnal colours. Perfect for keeping your legs cosy on the early morning commute, they’re also made from 55% wool, so comfort is top of the bill here. For something textured to add some interest to a plain outfit, the Levante Wool Rib Tights are just the ticket, and they come with the added benefit of being incredibly affordable. Luxury seekers will also love the Wolford Merino Tights, typically Wolford with their generous waistband for maximum comfort.

If nothing here is taking your fancy, why not have a look at our entire range of wool tights, instead?

Whatever you choose, you’ll be fit for a winter wonderland!

HOSIERY BREAKING NEWS! Sophie Ellis Bextor Unveiled as New Face of Pretty Polly

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!

HOW TO WEAR PATTERNED TIGHTS

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!
