Maternity Tights: Fearne Cotton Shows Us How!

Fearne rocking her fab maternity style!

Fearne rocking her fab maternity style!

As far as women go, Fearne Cotton is one of our favourites. Announcing earlier this month that she’s leaving her post on Radio 1 after ten years in the hotseat, it’s taken us quite some time to come to terms with the revelation. What are we going to do without our daily dose of the DJ who puts the effortless into cool? However, it doesn’t look like Fearne’s about to drop off our radar any time soon, having been papped almost daily since her big revelation. Of course, we all know the reason behind her departure is a happy one – she’s pregnant with her second child! Good on you, Fearne! As well as continuing to showcase a quirky style, one thing we’ve noticed about her recent outfits is that each and every one of them has featured a pair of tights. While Fearne’s kept tight-lipped about when her due date is, we would imagine she’s treated herself to a few pairs of maternity tights to support her growing bump. As a high-profile celebrity mum to be, we thought this was a great excuse to round up some of our favourite maternity tights on offer at MyTights.com!

Now, it’s not uncommon for women to be slightly dubious about wearing maternity tights during their term, but you needn’t worry. Maternity tights are a completely safe option that boost comfort and provide some much needed support for your bump, particularly in the later stages of your pregnancy. Many of them are made with a panel that sits beneath the belly to reduce the pressure on your lower back. Made from nylon, maternity tights will grow and stretch as your baby does, so there’s no need to keep replacing as your bump grows outwards. If you like the idea of maternity tights, the good news is that MyTights.com have searched high and low across all of the leading brands for the very best styles. Often associated with being frumpy and unflattering, our selection will keep you bang on trend and make your expectant months a stylish affair.

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

Mama Spanx Maternity Tights

1) Mama Spanx Maternity Tights - the ultimate in maternity tights from everyone’s favourite shapewear brand, these 20 denier tights have a high-waisted panel to offer you much-need support before your baby is born. Appearing like regular tights with their slight sheen finish, these maternity tights come with a special panel that sits beneath the tummy, offering support to the lower back and making you feel a little more confident about your growing frame. Smoothing over the bump in a completely safe way, choose between black and nude.

2) Trasparenze 20 Denier Maternity Tights – another 20 denier offering but a little more affordable than the Spanx tights, these maternity sheers are made with a stretchy and generous fabric that will expand with your growing sprog. Made using natural cotton to ensure you don’t overheat, the flat lying waistband will rest comfortably over your bump without showing through tighter clothing styles. Beats a pair of unflattering trousers, right?

3) Trasparenze Perdue 70D Maternity Tights – great if your expectant months span across the winter, these 70 denier maternity tights offer a similar support but with a thicker denier to keep you feeling lovely and snug. Coming in three colours and made with a cotton/Lycra composition, they have a great amount of stretch to accommodate your bump and make these precious months extra special.

Giving you more time to put your feet up and relax!

Rihanna Shows Us All How To Style Ankle Socks!

We’ve been hooked on Rihanna ever since she brought Umbrella to our airwaves way back in 2007. Altogether now… ella, ella, ella, eh. No? Okay. Continuing to assert her presence not only on the music world but the fashion, she truly is one of a kind. Sure, she might get it wrong sometimes. For instance, this week she was spotted wearing socks and sandals, but it doesn’t matter when she pulls outfits like the below out of the bag!

 

Style perfection!

Style perfection!

 Having been announced as the new face of cosmetic brand Dior (and being the first black woman ever to take the accolade, FYI), Rihanna was this week photographed at the premiere of her new animated movie Home in a cute as a button teal dress with a cute bow print. Accessorising with a matching jacket, pointed teal heels and black ankle socks, Rihanna showed everyone how to look great without falling foul to an OTT look. For us, the star of her outfit was her socks, working to dress down the ensemble and give off a flirty edge that was perfect for the relatively low key premiere. Are you crushing on her socks? Each and every one of us can recreate it, and even better, at an affordable price!

Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks

Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks

To copy her look to perfection, look no further than the Trasparenze Monique Ankle Socks in Nero. We’re sure Rihanna spent a whole lot more on hers, but these opaque ankle highs are near on identical, and will set you back just £3.85 a pair. What reason could you possibly have to say no?  If patterned dresses aren’t for you, how about running Rihanna’s look upside down with a plain dress and pair of patterned socks? The ideal way to do this is with the Jonathan Aston Illusion Socks! Made with thin diagonal monochrome stripes that meet in the middle to create a chevron effect, they’ll look great with killer heels and a black skater dress.

Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets

Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets

New to SS15, another one of our favourite styles are the Jonathan Aston Crystal Socks, which are perfect if your outfits are lacking a little in the personality department. With their ribbed finish, the satin bow at ankle height is perfect for giving your outfits an on-trend look (if it’s good enough for Rihanna…) Feeling romantic? Opt for the Pamela Mann All Over Hearts Anklets, with their chic sheer base and mix of opaque love hearts. Not only giving your outfit a super-cute twist but also seen on fellow fashionista Fearne Cotton, we love to wear ours with black party dresses!

Keep up the good work, RiRi!

Retro Perfection: Emma Roberts in Knee Highs

Emma Roberts rocking 70's chic!

Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs

Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs

Being the niece of Julia Roberts, Emma Roberts was always destined for big things. Emerging in recent years as one of the brightest young stars in Hollywood, it appears like the 24 year old actress knows a thing or two about style, too. Being papped this week on set of her new television series Scream Queens, Emma looked fabulous in a retro inspired outfit, comprising a faux fur jacket, white blouse, dogtooth skirt and gorgeous blush pink knee high socks. Sure, she has the wardrobe department to thank for her old school look, but Roberts pulled it off with panache.

Now, of course most of our attention focused on her socks, and what a pair they are! Finishing just below the knee and coming with a fashion-forward ribbed design, they added a sweet, flirty appeal to her look and made her look as if she was straight out of the 1970’s (and we mean that in a good way!)

What do you think about her socks? If you like them as much as us, the good news is that it couldn’t be easier to follow in Emma’s star studded footsteps. Here’s how you can recreate her look…

1) Perhaps the closest way to rival Emma’s look would be with the Oroblu Parisienne Knee Highs. Also coming with a chic ribbed design, these opaque socks come in both black and a deep burgundy shade, proving the perfect accessory to retro swing dresses and 70’s patterns. Emma Roberts who?!

2) If the blush pink shade of Emma’s socks appealed to you, opt for the Trasparenze Cinzia Knee High Socks in Rosa. A gorgeous soft pink colour, these 70 denier socks are actually available in 18 additional colours. Something to match every look, stocking up on these wouldn’t be the worst idea in the world…

Charnos Chevron & Diamond Knee Highs

Charnos Chevron & Diamond Knee Highs

3) Retro fashion is all about jazzy patterns, and that’s exactly what you’ll get with the Charnos Chevron & Diamond Knee Highs (2pp). Two pairs of sheer knee high socks, with one boasting a 70’s-esque chevron design and the other a stylish diamond; the hardest part will be choosing which pair to wear!

4) Take a walk on the wild side in the gorgeous Pretty Polly Animal & Stripe Knee Highs. What you’ll get here is one pair of sheer knee highs in a classic stripe and the other boasting a retro animal print. Great with flirty hemlines!

We look forward to the series if this style is anything to go by!

Taylor Swift: Our Hosiery Hero!

It’s no secret that the MyTights team have gone a little Taylor Swift crazy over the last few months. One look through this blog and you’ll be able to see just how much we adore her; she can’t put a foot wrong! Not only does she continually produce the catchiest of pop songs, she’s also a serious fashionista, in particular through her choice of legwear. Without doubt our biggest hosiery style crush, the best dressed legs in showbiz now come with a price, having been insured for a whopping £26 million pounds this week. To mark the occasion, we take a look back at some of her finest ensembles over the past few years and show you how you can copy her chic looks…

Our eyes lit up when we saw these gorgeous spotty sheers from Taylor towards the end of 2014. Stepping out with a friend looking typically fresh and perfectly coiffed, Swift teamed her fashion tights with a pair of purple heels, simple black dress and gorgeous tweed overcoat. It goes without saying that we adored this look, so much so that we’ve been wearing polkadots ever since! Our favourites are the Pamela Mann Sheer Dotty Tights, with their choice of three colours and dainty dot design identical to Taylor’s herself!

Fierce in fishnets

Performing hit single Blank Space at the 2015 Brit Awards, the pop sensation teamed a fabulous tailored playsuit with heeled ankle boots and a pair of foxy fishnet tights. A far cry from her usual butter wouldn’t melt look, the classic fishnet design proved Swift can do sexy too! If you adored her look as much as us, the way to recreate it is with the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights. A classic pair of fishnets that will stand the test of time, these are the easiest way to add some sass into your wardrobe.

Brilliant burgundy!

We remember just how excited we were when we spotted Taylor in this adorable outfit last autumn. An electric blue tweed overcoat, mustard dress and gorgeous burgundy opaques – we were floored! Accessorising with a burgundy trilby and matching handbag, Taylor nailed the trend for block colours to a tee. The way to recreate this look? With the Aristoc 80D Opaque Tights! Available in a similar shade of burgundy to Swifty’s herself, these thick opaques are the perfect way to add some colour to your outfit. Follow Taylor’s lead and opt for a bright day dress and vibrant accessories.

Perhaps our favourite Taylor look to date, the 25 year old wowed us all when she stepped out after a shop of retail therapy this winter wearing this divine ensemble! A lace sweater, tartan shorts and fabulous striped sheers, she showed everyone how to work patterned tights. If this has tickled your fashion tastebuds, the way to copy her look is with the Charnos Stripe Mesh Tights. A near carbon copy of Taylor’s look, these are brilliant for updating your classics.

£26 million? Worth every penny!

Get the Look: Beyonce in Leather Look Leggings!

Beyonce does biker chick!

Beyonce does biker chick!

Wolford Estella Leggings

Wolford Estella Leggings

International pop star, superstar husband, insanely talented. Is there anything that Beyonce can’t do?  It appears not, as this week she added yet another string to her already jam packed bow – style icon! Stepping out for a post-Grammys dinner with husband Jay Z and Ed Sheeran in a gorgeous pair of leather look leggings, Beyonce worked her curves to a tee, mastering the often difficult rock chick style. Teaming her biker leggings with a black leather jacket, statement tee and leather ankle boots (of course), the fabulous look has caused quite the stir in MyTights HQ – we just love her! If, like us, you’d love to be a little more like Beyonce herself, the good news is you can recreate her look with just a few simple clicks. Landing in our offices only last week (perfect timing), the Wolford Estella Leggings will give you the same statement look as the Queen Bee herself, with their high shine finish, skin-tight fit and quirky seam above the knee. You may not have her millions or bank, or maybe even her vocal range, but here’s how to get it right:

1) Experiment with patterns – while the leggings may make a statement in their own right, that doesn’t mean you can’t rock some colour and patterns on your top half. Beyonce’s statement tee was a great look – opt for stripes, aztec and spots to recreate,

2) The more leather the better – the key to nailing the rock chick look is to make leather your best friend; you can never have enough! Pull out your biker jacket and studded boots, ladies!

3) Jewellery is a must – the perfect accessory to leather, accessorise your look to perfection with chunky rings and a statement necklace.

She can do no wrong in our opinion! See our entire range of fashion leggings, here.

All about the layers: Meghan Trainor

Meghan Trainor

Meghan Trainor and her fabulous tights!

Bursting onto the scene in 2014 with perhaps the catchiest song of the decade, the domination of All About That Bass singer Meghan Trainor doesn’t look like it’s about to end anytime soon. Currently sitting pretty at the top of the album charts with her debut collection (and that’s no mean feat), this week saw Meghan being noticed not only for her tunes, but for her fashion choices, stepping out at a Sam Smith concert in a pair of chic sheer tights with inbuilt knee high sock.

Opting for an all black ensemble which showed off her curves perfectly, the star paired her tights with a leather look skater skirt, black sweater and strappy heels. Proving that wrapping up from the cold doesn’t always mean you have to revert to a pair of trusty black opaques, we think Meghan looked fabulous, mastering the trend for layers and undoubtedly saving herself some time in the process. If you love her A-list look, the good news is that you can easily recreate it with the collection at MyTights, and even more music to your ears… without the A-list price tag.

Modal-Secret-Socks

Pretty Polly Modal Secret Socks Tights

For a great style replica, head to Pretty Polly and their fabulous Modal Secret Socks Tights. Near on identical to Meghan herself, these 20 denier matte tights have an inbuilt 60 denier sock, finishing just below the knee. Not restrictive in any way, the sock sits comfortably on your leg, appearing like regular knee highs with their mock band and opaque finish. It’s really up to you how you style them – great for creating a flirty look à la Trainor, you could also just use them as an extra layer behind knee high boots.

If your outfit is in need of a little update, Pretty Polly has created a similar style, but this time with a patterned sheer panel above the sock. Perfect for completing your black skater dress and peep-toes combo, the Pretty Polly Pattern Modal Secret Socks Tights come with an attractive diamond design from the brief downwards, lifting your look and merging into a 60 denier sock at knee height.

Should you want just that little bit more coverage, open your eyes to the wonders of suspender tights. Similar to Meghan in that they combine both sheer and opaque panels for a chic contrast, the pick of the pack are the Henry Holland Super Suspender Tights. Finishing around the mid thigh, the opaque section makes way for a 20 denier panel at the top, complete with mock suspender straps and belt for a look on the right side of sultry!

Keep the fantastic legwear coming, Meghan!

Work Statement Style Like Gwen Stefani

Wolford Stella Tights

Wolford Stella Tights

You can always count on No Doubt songstress Gwen Stefani to challenge the style boundaries and pull out a combination of prints and colours us mere mortals wouldn’t even dream of, can’t you? Her quirky looks are constantly baffling the MyTights team. I mean they shouldn’t work, and we’re not saying that we’d try them ourselves by any means, but they always have a knack of looking great. This week was no different, either, with the Hollaback Girl singer opting for a grunge get-up, wearing a polkadot jumper with a check shirt tied round her waist and some seriously funky legwear. Cut off just above her ankle, her footless tights had an unusual vertical stripe design, with half the leg in black and the other in block white. While it’s not always necessary to go to such extremes to channel an alternative look, fashion tights are a fantastic (and affordable) way to stand out from the style pack. If you’re looking to take more risks with your legwear, our top 5 picks below will point you in the right direction…

 1) Wolford Stella Tights – similar to Gwen’s look in that they opt for a vertical stripe design, these gorgeous sheer tights from Wolford have a striking print on the outside leg, with a visually pleasing graphic stripe and finishing with a sewn in band at stay up height.

2) Jonathan Aston Katusha Tights – a great way to work stand-out fashion in the winter months, the Jonathan Aston fashion tights are made with 80% merino wool, keeping you snug and creating a ahead of the crowd look with their bold crocheted finish.

Jonathan Aston Katusha Tights

3) Oroblu Miss Tights – the perfect partner for your LBD, these 15 denier fashion tights have a unique polkadot pattern, continuing up the leg in a vertical fashion and ending with mock hold up tops for an original and sultry feel.

4) Fast at Jonathan Aston DV Stripes Tights – a collaboration between British favourites Jonathan Aston and the acclaimed fashion designer Mark Fast, these leg-lengthening 20 denier tights have a combination of chic sheer panels and opaque vertical sections – a guaranteed head turner!

5) Wolford Leonie Tights – a multitude of chic polkadots that increase in size as they descend down the leg and the choice of two colours, these sheer tights are a fantastic way to inject a quirky vibe into your day to night wardrobe.

We might not be Gwen, but we can give it a good go!

Thick Black Opaques: A Style Battle!

Emma Willis looking characteristically fab! Generally as far as winters go, this one hasn’t been too bad. Sure, we’ve rarely been able to leave the house without at least a few layers, but we’ve admittedly done pretty well. That is, until this week of course! Thousands of us across the country have been hit with a dreaded cold snap, bringing with it a blanket of snow and forcing hundreds of schools to shut down for the day. While celebrities usually have a knack of being able to wear sheer tights or bare legs all year round, it seems that the current cold weather has proved too much for two of MyTights style favourites. Both Fearne Cotton and Emma Willis this week opted to wrap up warm, stepping out in a pair of thick black opaque tights, albeit channelling rather different looks. But the question that’s on all of our lips; who wore it best?Fearne Cotton at BBC Radio 1 Studios, London, Britain - 23 Jan 2015

Celebrity Big Brother presenter and all round golden girl Emma Willis braved this week’s live eviction in a stunning floral PVC jacket, high neck burgundy mini and chic suede heels, finishing off her quirky look with a pair of thick black opaques. While we don’t think Emma’s jacket is wearable for us normal folk, we can’t help but admire her gorgeous ensemble, and we particularly loved her choice of burgundy dress, which nailed the trend for block colours perfectly. Opting for a pair of black heels also gave her bottom half a uniformed appearance, showing off her slim legs brilliantly. We salute you Emma! Moving on now to Radio 1 DJ Fearne Cotton, who wore her black opaques as part of a more relaxed daytime look. Protecting herself from the elements in a glamorous leopard print coat, the TV personality wore a somewhat unusual (although stylish) mix of a pastel knitted jumper and matching dress in a floaty chiffon fabric. Finishing around the mid-calf, her dress allowed for a hint of her thick black opaques to shine though. Typical of Fearnes style, her outfit was certainly original, but we can’t help think it had a little too much going on to pip Emma to the post.

This round goes to the lovely Mrs Willis!
