Street Style: London!

When it comes to finding some new style inspiration, forget flicking through glossy mags or following the fashion choices of celebs, the very best way to find out what’s on trend is to take to the streets! And that’s exactly what the MyTights team did this week, treading the streets of London to find exactly what you’ve been wearing on your legs this season. We happened to pick the rainiest July day the world has perhaps ever encountered, so it was a tale of wrapping up warm with a few opting to forget the rain and embrace summer. From chic ankle socks through to classic opaques, here’s our round up of street style pics!

 

Black opaques

It might be the height of summer, but we all know that the British weather rarely behaves. With all the rain we’ve had of late, many of us have been turning to opaques to protect our pins from the chill in the air. Fine by us! Classic, versatile and the perfect base for adding patterns to your look, owning a few pair of quality black opaque tights is a must.

Jesy Nelson: Fishnets

jesy nelson

Jesy Nelson

Newly engaged Little Mix member, Jesy Nelson, sure knows how to make us envious – the popstar has been spotted in two of the best accessories there are; a diamond ring and fishnet tights! The popstar stole the heart of Rixton’s frontman Jake Roche, and we certainly understand why. During a recent performance she was dressed in a racy combo – black cut-out top, black fringe shorts, knee high boots, and of course, her trademark black fishnets. Jesy shows us summer outfits don’t have to be colourful and elegant; they can be dark and bold. At Tightsplease, we have searched through out collection to find the best pair of fishnet tights to give you a copycat look.

 

Jonathan Aston’s Fishnet Tights,  Leg Avenue Glitter Fishnet Tights, and Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights are all classic, sexy, and best of all, affordable! Regardless of what you’re wearing – shorts, skirt, dress, or pants – these fishnets will surely bring a bit of jene sais quoi to your look. Turning up the sex appeal while keeping you cool – what more could we ask for from a pair of tights? We can’t have everything Jesy does – namely her handsome fiancé and diamond ring, but at least we can try out her look

A Family Affair: Black Opaques for Balman

The latest Balmain campaign is a serious family affair as it features three pairs of sisters; Gigi and Bella Hadid, Kendall and Kylie Jenner, and up-and-comers Joan and Erika Smalls. Oliver Rousteing, the creative director of Balmain, prides himself on bringing a new vision to fashion – so who better to take advice from to keep us ahead of the game?! The high fashion brand not only showcases the powerful bond between sisters; it shows the allure of black tights too. All 3 ads have the women wearing black opaque’s with their glamorous outfits. Showing us exactly how classy tights can be, we have drawn inspiration from the photos for our future glitzy nights out – thanks Oliver!

Jenny from The Block: Leopard Print Leggings

j lo leopard

We don’t know about you, but when it comes to working out, the thought of being papped is our worst nightmare. But not for Jennifer Lopez, who was this week spotted– quite literally – in a pair of leopard print leggings while on a run Stateside. Adding a fashion-forward twist to her exercise collection, the star showed off her toned body with a white vest and sports trainers: can you believe she’s 45 years old?!  Recently at the centre of a scandal involving the split of her former flame Ben Affleck with Jennifer Garner, the singer brushed off the rumours in the very best way she could: looking great.

J-Lo owns the animal print and we have the legwear you need to do the same on a daily basis To channel your inner spirit animal we suggest testing out the Pamela Mann Natural Leopard Print Tights with their classic leopard print design and classic sheer to waist brief. Or for something a little more colourful, take a look at the Pamela Mann Small Leopard Print Tights which come in vibrant shades for the colour chameleons amongst us.Fierce, fun, and affordable, you should also check out the Henry Holland Fishnet Animal Tights, which mix the allure of fishnets with a novel animal print design. A rawr-ing success we say!

Trend Alert: 50 Shades of Pink

Forget 50 Shades of Grey, here at Tightsplease, we’re all about 50 shades of pink! In typical fashion, we’ve been keeping a firm eye on the catwalks in recent months, and what have we noticed? Pink. Everywhere and anywhere, designers have gone mad for the girly shade, with the likes of Max Mara, Chanel and Edun all featuring the colour on their catwalks to name but a few. It goes without saying that catwalk trends extend to the streets, so just to make sure you’re perfectly prepared to nail the trend, we’ve rounded up our favourite pretty in pink hosiery!

I can picture what you are thinking, ‘really, pink?’, considering most of us probably haven’t worn the colour since we were kids. But with some careful styling and opting for the right shades, pink hosiery can add a flirty twist to any look.

If you’re a fan of leggings, make a beeline for the Trasparenze Dorella Footless Leggings in Ciclamino; bright and bold, this shade is great for updating basics and adding a splash of colour to any ensemble. Pair with a white tunic and strappy sandals for a fab summer look, or if the weather calls for something a little lighter, treat yourself to the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights in fuschia, with their 15 denier weight and slight sheen finish .Keen to try out the trend but want something a little understated? Check out the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights in Candy Pink for a soft take on the trend.

Rita Ora

Music festivals: an absolute must on your summer to-do list. From Glastonbury to T in the Park, hundreds of thousands of us will be dusting off our wellies and taking to the fields to celebrate all things summer. Of course, music festivals and fashion go hand-in-hand, and it will come as no surprise to you that we recommend hosiery as the perfect festival accessory.

Don’t believe us? Check out this ensemble Rita Ora, who this weekend performed at Wireless Festival in London, wearing an outfit that certainly caught our eye here at Tightsplease HQ. Wearing a bondage style bra and knickers, she tied the outfit together with a pair of black sheer tights and metallic biker style boots! It’s simple: trusty black sheers are a festival must, whether you’re wearing a dress, shorts and tank, or feeling brave enough to wear an outfit like Rita’s.

Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights

At Tightsplease, we recommend the Charnos 24/7 Sheer Tights 3PP or the Wolford Fatal 15 Seamless Tight to capture the same look as Rita. Not wanting black? Do not fear, we have sheer tights in styles ranging from nude to patterned to pink – the choice is yours. One of our faves are the Jonathan Aston Sheer Coloured Tights which come in an array of colours.

The pop superstar is never too far from our screens (or airwaves) and with a new judging role on the X Factor, we doubt it’ll be too long before she’s wowing us with her hosiery choices…

Pretty Polly Naturals: Just like Rosie Fortescue!

Perfect for carrying off that bare leg look we all want so much, the range of tights and hold ups give your legs a natural finish, masks imperfections and above all, are entirely affordable!

And it seems it’s not just us who are fans of the range, with none other than Made in Chelsea star Rosie Fortescue lending her enviable pins to the famous hosiery brand. Recreating an iconic image, the reality star donned the chic legwear with a figure hugging white dress and gladiator heels. If you’re a fan of her natural looking pins, we’ve rounded up the Naturals collection and why we love them just so much…

TREND ALERT: Thigh High Slit

Karlie Kloss

Karlie Kloss

Cannes Film Festival has always been renowned for its show stopping outfits, however one trend that stood out for us on the red carpet this year was the side split! Doutzen Kroes was seen sporting a Versace version of the sexy style at the film festival along with Karlie Kloss and Natasha Poly. Your monthly planner may be more ‘trips to the shop’ rather than occasions that require a Versace gown, however the style is moving to the streets, so we’ve considered the very best hosiery for pulling off the trend, and of course Tightsplease has it covered!

Wolford Fatal 15 Seamless Tights

Wolford Fatal 15 Seamless Tights

The answer to a natural look when wearing side splits? Seamless Tights. Packed full of luxury and worth every penny, check out the Wolford Fatal 15 Seamless Tights, which are perfect for wearing with floor length summery skirts with side slits. Sheer enough to create the ‘no hosiery look’ you crave, these are a must for pulling off the trend. The great thing about high slit skirts is that they’re incredibly versatile when it comes to shoes; Kendall and Kylie Jenner have been known to pair their skirts with slip ons, or dress it up a bit with strappy sandals or pumps. When going for the more casual look, such as trainers or slip-ons, these Wolford tights are perfect as they come with a reinforced toe, so they’ll be able to withstand chunkier footwear. If you want to wear the high slit trend but can’t wave goodbye to your inner rock chick, you should also check out the Wolford Twenties Tights, with their classic fishnet design and seamless finish!

Fishnets: who wore them best?!

Fishnets. Everyone’s going crazy for them! We’ve always been huge fans of fishnets, so it comes as no surprise to us, but we’ve spotted an abundance of celebrities stepping out in net legwear of late. This week was no different, with both Hilary Duff and Alesha Dixon trying out the trend. Both looked fab in our eyes, but it begs the question – fishnet tights: who wore them best?! We’re about to find out…

 

Alesha Dixon

Alesha Dixon

Beginning with Britain’s Got Talent judge Alesha, who took to the stage in a typically eye-catching outfit. Supporting her good friend Pharrell (who knew?!), the star wore an unusual black and gold playsuit, accessorising her look with nude fishnet tights. It’s fair to say we wouldn’t wear an outfit like this for a standard trip to the shops, but we think Alesha’s tights look great, and nude tights are perfect for the summer months, so bravo to her, we say!

 

Hilary Duff

Hilary Duff

 

Next up we have Hilary Duff, performing her latest single on Good Morning America in, you guessed it…nude fishnet tights. We don’t have the never ending pins of Hilary herself, but we loved how she wore her tights with statement shorts, a white blouse and heeled ankle boots. While her shorts were probably a little outlandish for us mere mortals, we think Hilary’s nabbed this one! Do you agree?
