Why Breast Cancer Care? 

According to BCC, over 55.000 people get diagnosed with breast cancer in the UK. Besides, 1 in 8 women in the UK will develop breast cancer in their lifetime. This sounds like a good cause to support, don’t you think?

Trend Alert: Dark Blue Opaque Tights

Autumn collections are just round the corner and we want to give you some insights about what’s going to be hot in the Autumn-Winter 2015/16 campaign, starting for our speciality: Tights!

Why Dark Blue Opaque Tights?

Why do we send this trend alert? One of the most common outfit malfunctions happens when you wear navy tights instead of black tights… and you don’t notice the issue until you’ve left home! Has it ever happened to you? At the end, this puts people off from buying navy tights. If you gave up wearing navy tights, you’ll have to rethink it after you read this.

London Fashion Week left us plenty of legwear styles for Autumn-Winter 2015. Many Fashion designers went for opaque tights in dark blue, forest green, berries and, of course, black.

AW15 Trend: Royal Blue Opaque Tights

Get the look: Jonathan Aston 40 Denier Coloured Tights in Royal Blue (£5.99) 

The cover of Bazaar’s August issue includes these lovely Royal Blue tights by Jonathan Aston. Mix your Royal Blue tights with other shades of blue, white, silver and black. Besides, if you like wearing colourful outfits, Royal Blue tights are perfect for you, since they look amazing with orange, red and light pink.

AW15 Trend: Navy Opaque Tights

Bazaar UK Cover Pamela Mann TightsGet the look: Pamela Mann 80 Denier Coloured Tights in Navy 

Navy tights are less casual than royal blue, but still easy enough to pair. White, red and shades of blue (including several shades of denim) combine to perfection with navy tights. These Navy opaque tights by Pamela Mann are also featured in Bazaar.

  • Just a quick tip: If you have lost the original packaging of your navy tights, store them in freezer bags with a note or a post-it including the name and colour of the tights. This way you won’t get your black and navy tights all messed up.

Do you feel like buying dark blue opaque tights? At UK Tights you have over 150 Blue and Navy Tights to choose from! 

90’s Revival: Get the Clueless Look

Get the Clueless Look:

Clueless legwear1

Back in the 90’s, outfit matching was a real obsession (look at the girl in the back with striped wool tights and matching top). White collar blouses and button-front mini skirts are, somehow, back to our wardrobe. Wear them with over the knee socks or wool tights (always matching your outfit for the ultimate Clueless Look).

Plaids, plaids and more plaids. Colourful tartan skirts and jacket with matching cardigans were a must-wear of Clueless‘ girls. One of the most memorable Clueless looks is this plaid outfit with white over the knee socks.

Fashion had to be the centre of a 90’s Beverly Hill’s High School. How cute mini skirts look with knee highs! If you want to steal this look, have a look at these gorgeous knee highs.

Nude clothing is hot this season, but it has evolved from a very light beige (with remembrances of light pink) to a more sun-kissed beige. In hosiery, nude has light pink tone (Vionnet, Alberta Ferretti &  Bottega Veneta. Pictures: Vogue).

Dotty and spotty prints were hot in the 70’s. They came back to Fashion last year and, after seeing them in Fashion Catwalks, we can state that dots are staying in Fashion for a few more seasons.

Along with dots, geometric patterns are hot, too. Diamond prints, mixed and matched with circles and stripes… perfect for all of you who like wearing Fashion tights. These prints come in safari nudes, cobalt blues, cyclamen reds and, of course, black. Last but not least, floral prints. We’ve seen them in leggings, socks and tights.

We can’t have enough of Madonna in Fishnet Tights

She did it again. Madonna has released her new video clip Bitch, I’m Madonna and it’s full of hosiery. Whether you like or dislike the song, there’s something no one can deny: No one styles fishnet tights as Madonna.

We Can’t Have Enough of Madonna in Fishnet Tights: 

In the video, Madonna runs, jumps, dances, kisses… no wonder why she ends up resting over the carpet. What fishnet tights can survive such a messy party? There’s no doubt Madonna went again for Wolford Twenties Fishnet Tights, Madonna’s favourite fishnets.

Madonna Loves Legwear

bitch I'm Madonna fishnets hosiery

There’s plenty of hosiery in Madonna’s latest video. Knee highs and Over the Knee High socks, coloured socks, white leggings, black leather leggings and what looks like two pairs of fishnets overlaid. Although the tights in the top left dancer look alike the Silky Scarlet Diamond String Tights, we believe they’re some Whale Net Tights over some fishnet tights. Do you agree with us?

Bitch I'm Madonna Celebrities

Nicki Minaj, Chris Rock, Rita Ora, Miley Cyrus, Kanye West, Beyoncé, Katy Perry, Alexander Wang… Madonna’s latest video is packed with familiar faces. Is she trying to compete against Taylor Swift’s Bad Blood?
