Tackle the summer to autumn transition with semi-opaques


Tackle the summer to autumn transition with semi-opaques

Pretty Polly 40D Silk Finish Tights

Pretty Polly 40D Silk Finish Tights

Believe it or not – next week is the start of September. First things first, where did the summer go?! Secondly, it’s time to start thinking about the weather inevitably getting chillier and the night’s drawing in. Depressing it may be, but instead of lamenting the change of season, we’re embracing it. The transition between winter and autumn is notoriously difficult when it comes to knowing what to wear on your legs. With that in mind, we’ve rounded up our collection of semi opaque tights that are perfect for this time of year. Between a 30-40 denier, semi opaque hosiery means you’ll still be able to see a slight glimpse of skin, yet gives you extra protection from nasty weather. It’s the perfect compromise!

For a great everyday pair that won’t break the bank, the Pretty Polly 40D Silk Finish Tights are a must. With their slight sheen and silky feel, they’ll give any look an elegant base, and come two per pack – meaning you’ll always have a pair to hand when you need them most. Or if you’re after something that might last a little longer, take a look at the Aristoc 30D Opaque Tights. Offering value for money, these reliable semi opaques come in both black and navy, are super durable, and have a matte finish, so will slot seamlessly into both day and evening looks.

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Wolford Neon 40 Tights

Widely considered to be the ultimate coverage tights, another option are the Neon 40s from Wolford. Super shiny and ideal for glam occasions, they’ll cover over any blemishes or skin imperfections, and have the appearance of a 20 denier (but the warmth of a 40), meaning that you don’t have to give up on summer legs just yet! Forever on your feet? For a quick fix to tired legs, the Falke Leg Energiser 30 Tights are a great choice, using a strong support level to boost circulation, as well as a hidden shaping effect to smooth over any lumps and bumps.

Last but not least in our semi opaque line up, we have the Jonathan Aston 40D Opaque Tights, which come in an abundance of colours that are fab for injecting some personality into another dull look.

The end of summer isn’t so bad now, is it?




Briney in Vegas: Her Best Hosiery Looks

Two years into her stint at Vegas’ Planet Hollywood, queen of pop Britney Spears and her Piece Of Me tour don’t seem to be going anywhere soon. Continuing to wow the crowds, the show has been famed for, amongst its seriously catchy tunes, an abundance of risqué outfit changes. Of course, we’ve always got one eye on the ball when it comes to hosiery, and we couldn’t help but notice just how much the 33 year old loves to decorate her legs whilst on stage. With this in mind, we’ve rounded up our favourite Piece Of Me looks and how you can recreate them at Tightsplease!


Britney Spears


Opting for a country look and going back to her roots, Britney paired a black crop top with denim hot pants, ankle boots and chic fishnet tights, finishing off her outfit with the obligatory check shirt tied around her waist. Fishnets are fab for giving outfits a rock chick twist, and whilst we may opt for a more covered up look than Britney herself, nets like this are a must for any wardrobe. From the office to the bar, there’s something for everyone in our fishnet range, from the affordable Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights through to the luxury of the Wolford Twenties Tights.

Britney Spears (stockings)

Full of wow factor, another of Britney’s looks involves a lace bra, high waisted briefs and sultry black stockings. Okay…so a look like this isn’t exactly appropriate for most social situations, but the star is definitely onto something when it comes to her stockings. For a similarly decorative pair, head to the brand new Rame Stockings from Trasparenze, which have a sweet spotty print and lace tops. Or for something simpler, take a look at the Aristoc Ultra Shine Stockings, with a glossy finish to add some glamour to everyday looks.

Wet Look Leggings

Britney Spears (bodysuit)

Nothing says rock chick quite like a pair of wet look leggings. Britney’s herself formed part of a mesh bodysuit, and while it’s fair to say the bodysuit isn’t on the top of her wishlist, we loved the lower half. For a copycat pair of wet look leggings, the Pamela Mann Leather Look Leggings and Wet Look Leggings are definitely worth a look, as are the Wolford Estella Leggings if you’re after something extra special.

It’s official: fishnets are IN!

Mariah Carey

Mariah Carey

Meghan Trainor

Meghan Trainor


With fishnet tights being one of the stand out pieces on the AW15 catwalks, this week saw not one but TWO celebrities trying out the trend. If that’s not evidence enough, then we don’t know that is! Rarely seen without a pair of fishnets, the first of our fashion-forward duo is Mariah Carey, who opted for a classic pair of black net tights to complement her waterfall style dress and flats. Not always known for her sense of style, we loved this look from the songstress, showing off her pins and making a statement all in one. Next up was pop princess Meghan Trainor, who opted to team her black fishnets with a preppy skater skirt and baseball style jacket. Two very different looks with one very chic similarity, what better time to round up our favourite fishnets?

Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights

Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights

Classic: For a classic pair of everyday nets, the Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights offer everything you could want, with a choice of two classic shades that can work for just about any occasion.

For the office: when it comes to the workplace, you’ll want something a little more subtle. Cue the Levante Micronet Tights, which offer a similar level of coverage to sheers but have a fine net design to add a little attitude to your professional wardrobe.

Hold Ups: if you love the look of fishnets but prefer the comfort of hold ups, the Pamela Mann Fishnet Hold Ups are just the ticket, and come with exquisite lace tops to add something special to your look.

Crotchless: Open Gusset tights are fab for keeping cool and refreshed in warmer conditions, which is why the Leg Avenue Crotchless Fishnet Tights are a must. What’s more, they come in both black and white, so you’ll find a pair to complement any ensemble.

Fashion: for occasions where you need something with a touch of wow factor, the Wolford Daria Tights are a fantastic choice, with a fine tulle base and on trend spotty print!





Kylie Jenner in Wolford!

Kylie Jenner

Kylie Jenner

Can you believe Kylie Jenner has only just turned 18?! Having been in the public eye for what seems like forever and looking years older than she is, the Kardashian offspring this week celebrated her coming of age in style, with a star studded party and a brand new Ferrari from boyfriend Tyga. Alright for some, huh?! To mark her big birthday, the reality star also posed for a series of stunning shots that she (of course) posted to her Instagram page, wearing a host of rather risqué outfits. Predictably, our favourite included hosiery, posing on a sun lounger with a white bodice, kooky orange wig, dangerously high heels and sheer black hold ups! Whilst we would probably choose something slightly more covered up, we’re a huge fan of her legwear, so thought we’d round up similar styles so we can all recreate her look…


Wolford Individual 10 Stay Ups

Wolford Individual 10 Stay Ups

It just so happens we have the exact same pair that Kylie herself wore with the Wolford Individual 10 Stay Ups, boasting a matte appearance and simple plain tops that will work with any outfit. Show the hold ups off with a flirty mini dress, or cover up with a longer hemline safe in the knowledge the tops won’t show through your clothes. If you love these but prefer something a little more glam, check out the Aristoc Ultra Shine Hold Ups, which have a gorgeous glossy finish – perfect for the evening!

Another great option are the Falke Shelina Hold Ups, which boast the durability of a 12 denier, but with an 8 denier appearance. Finished with decadent lace tops, they come in a host of skin tone shades as well as black, giving you a bare leg look, nobody will know a thing! Especially for darker skin tones, the Nubian Skin Matt 10 Denier Hold Ups are a must, following on from the phenomenal media success of the lingerie range. Choose from four distinct shades! Last but not least, fashionistas will love the Pretty Polly Enchanting Pretty Flirty Backseam Hold Ups, which look like any other pair at first glance, but come with a slender backseam to give looks a retro twist!

We wonder what she’ll do for her 21st?


Paloma Faith trys out the ankle socks trend!



Ah Paloma, we knew we always loved you for a reason! Gorgeous singing voice aside, the flame haired beauty is famed for her quirky sense of style. So eclectic it just works, the Brit award winner this week stepped out in a colourful summer ensemble that more than caught our attention here at Tightsplease HQ. Pairing her geometric white mini dress with floral heels, the star of the show were her lemon yellow ankle socks. The perfect summer staple, a pair of colourful ankle socks are great for instantly transforming an outfit, and add a sweet touch to your looks. While you might find Paloma’s yellow to be a step too far on the colour spectrum, we have an array of ankle socks to recreate her look. Here’s our top 5:


Jonathan Aston Luminosity Socks

Paloma, you’ve done us proud!



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
