How To Master Tights

How To Master Tights

Tights can create a bold look. While the looks are trendy and all over the high-fashion runways, they can be a little intimidating to those who may not choose to go bold often. You can always start slowly with tights, or you can jump right in with trying all of the boldest looks right away. We at Hosieree.com want to help you to master tights, feel comfortable in every pair, and have fun with your hosiery collection. 

First and foremost, if you’re under-experienced in the world of tights, start with the classic – opaque black. Opaque black tights are a fashion staple, and you can wear them in bold looks, modest looks, and everything in between. They’re the pair of tights that will really let you play with your looks, see what you like, and branch out slowly if you so please. With opaque black tights, you can go shorter with your hemlines, brighter with your colors, and more interesting with your patterns. Another unintended perk? Opaque black tights can make you look slimmer instantly. 

On the other end of the spectrum are sheer tights. Where black tights are versatile and classic, sheer tights bring sex appeal. If you’re wearing a longer hemline and you want to bring a bit of sexiness into your look, sheer tights are the simplest way to do it. Additionally, if you’re wearing an A-line dress with a whimsical print, and you want to mature the outfit a bit, sheer tights and a pair of heels will make any quirky dress look more “adult”. If you’re wearing a shorter hemline or sexier look, however, you may choose a pair of tights that tone down rather than ramp up depending on the occasion. 

We have black, we have sheer, but what about colors? Any “drab” outfit that needs a little vibrancy or life can get that touch of excitement from a great pair of colored tights. Either opaque or sheer, colored hosiery brings a certain liveliness to any look and really turns something basic into something fun and full of personality. 

Whether you want to start small with a simple pair of opaque black tights, or you want to go all out with bright colors, bold patterns, and some sexy sheer hose, we have just what you need at Hosieree.com. Check us out today to see where your tights can take you! 

Choosing The Hosiery That Best Flatters Your Figure

Hosiery can transform your look in more ways than one. Not only can it bring your shorter hemlines to the office, your basic skirts to an edgy or high fashion level, and your shorts into the fall and winter seasons, it can also transform the way your body looks as well. Choosing hosiery to flatter your figure ensures you’ll always look your best no matter what you choose to wear. A few tips for choosing the hosiery that best flatters your figure are: 

• Bringing the height – Not all people have legs that go on for miles, but that doesn’t mean you can’t create the illusion that they do. If you’re looking to elongate the leg what you want from your hosiery are long lines. Our Cecilia de Rafael Hyde Park Back Seam Pantyhose  has back seams that take the eye all the way from the heel up to the back of the tight, elongating the leg in a simple, elegant, and classic way. 

• Vertical designs and small patterns slim the leg – If you’re looking to create a slimmer silhouette, vertical designs and small patterns are the way to go, and especially when on black hosiery. The Adrian Constance Fashion Sheers in Nero or Giulia Afina 40 Fashion Tights are perfect examples  you can find at Hosieree.com for subtle slimming you can mix and match with just about any outfit. 

• Color and bold patterns play up your curves – For those who wish to play up their curves, you may want to look into bold colors and bold patterns to give your legs a thicker, curvier, and bolder look. The Calzitaly Fishnet Tights with Leopardo Pattern are a perfect example of hosiery to really give your curves a moment in the spotlight using a bold pattern, while the Trasparenze Microfiber Sophie 70-Opaque Tights are just what you’re looking for if you’d prefer to play with color. 

With the right combination, your hosiery can really polish your outfit and give you the silhouette you’ve always dreamed of by adding one simple accessory. If you’re looking for your perfect hose to slim, elongate, or emphasize, check out what we have in stock at Hosieree.com today. 

Stockings Are The Hottest Trend Coming Out Of Fashion Week

Stockings Are The Hottest Trend Coming Out Of Fashion Week

Stockings are back in a big way this season and were seen in looks all over the runways of Paris, Milan, and New York. We saw classic tweed pieces paired with thigh-high sheer white stockings in Paris. Milan runways featured knee-high sheer black stockings layered under ankle boots. While designers in New York showed jet black thigh high stockings with textures. Luckily, you don’t have to pay fashion house prices to add these trending looks to your closet.

What Is The Difference Between Pantyhose And Stockings?

People often use pantyhose and stockings interchangeably. However, there is a major difference between the two garments. Pantyhose are sheer and usually made of nylon with a denier weight between 8 and 30. They cover the full leg from the toe to the waistband. Stockings on the other hand can be sheer or opaque and range in denier weight. The key difference though is stockings vary in length between under the knee to mid-thigh. They are either secured with a garter belt or have a lining at the top to hold them in place.

Get The Look

Now that you know the difference between pantyhose and stockings, here is how you can get the runway looks. These options offer the same high-end designer quality but at a much more affordable price point:

Trasparenze Sara Classic Sheer: These sheer stockings have a denier of 20. They also have a reinforced toe and a glossy finish which makes them a perfect wardrobe staple. They come in a variety of colors to achieve the perfect look.

Elly Knee-Highs 140 Semi-Opaque: Available in black and two shades of nude tones, these knee-highs are a perfect way to capture the looks of the Milan runways. They are semi-opaque with a denier weight of 140. Great for everyday wear, these knee highs have a graduated compression that slims the legs and provides a comfortable wear.

Fiore Malena Suspender Stockings: If you are looking for a statement piece for your wardrobe, these sheer spotted tights are a must-have. Available in a gorgeous shade of ecru, they will easily match any outfit while still adding a bit of interest.

These three options are just some of the great choices available at Hoisieree.com. We offer a full range of stockings in every color, size, and denier weight you can imagine. All of our stockings are European-grade, so they are durable and will last you through this season and many more. The best part is they are affordably priced so you can get runway looks without runway prices.

Accessories To Spice Up Hosiery

We know that hosiery is more than just a clothing item. Often, we associate it with feeling and looking sexy. More importantly, wearing hosiery can lend us an instant confidence boost. Even when we’re the only ones who know we’re wearing them, making the effort to look good can make us feel we’re looking our best.

If you’re a regular wearer however, this feeling might have worn off a tad bit. In this case, maybe it’s time to try some accessories to bring back some fun and excitement to putting on hosiery. We’ve picked a few of our more playful accessories on Hosieree.com for you to check out:

Garter Belts

If you’re a regular stocking wearer, you probably already have quite a few dependable garter belts in your drawer. However, you can never have too many garter belts! To break the monotony of day-to-day stocking use, why not add some more sensual pieces to your collection?

You could try a more delicate garter belt like the Miss0 GB308. This piece shows off an exquisite scallop pattern that arrests the eyes and captures the imagination. Perfect for getting into a romantic mood.

For a more robust yet playful belt, we also love Miss Naughty Leather Look 6 Strap Suspender Belt. This fun little number offers extra support to stockings, and could have you feeling more in command. It’s definitely a chic and feisty look we recommend!

Leg Warmers

We know leg warmers may seem a little too 80s, but hear us out. Done right, this accessory can add a cute and coquettish accent to a casual leggings and cardigan getup. This coming fall season; why not add some style to your comfort zone fashion with some premium-looking leg warmers?

We recommend checking out the Cazzola Gaetano 25698Fall Fashion Leg Warmers. The little flower detail is absolutely charming, and would definitely add something unique to your casual fall look.

Statement Thigh Bands

If you’re looking to give your stockings and garter belts a break, why not try thigh highs with more unique top bands? One piece that caught our attention was the Girardi Liasons Over Knees with Leather Top Bands.

Paired with heels, these thigh highs with string-drawn top bands will give you a sexy high boot look. They’re definitely fun to show off.

The Key To Having Long Legs

The Key To Having Long Legs

We got to admit that adding in the illusion of a few more inches to our height can give us a huge confidence boost. It makes us feel like the world is our own personal catwalk. Luckily, trying to look long-legged can be achieved by wearing the correct fashion pieces. If you feel like dominating the streets today, here are 5 fashion tips to keep in mind.

  • Go Mono

A combination of monochromatic clothes can make you look taller. The matching colors of your top and bottom gives the illusion of one vertical straight line. It also does not leave any break room, making it appear like your outfit and your whole person has no end. 

An excellent fashion choice for starters is pairing your favorite plain tops to simple yet fashionable leggings. It is an easy and doable set that you can wear comfortably anytime. Fashion leggings are not just in pairs of blacks too so you have more space to experiment with colors. 

  • Vertical Lines

Aside from colors, we are also going to play with patterns here! For a long-legged look, vertical lines are the key. Compared to horizontal figures and other patterns, vertical lines trick the eyes into making your body look longer. For instance, wearing pants with vertical stripes can elongate your legs and gives the illusion of a couple inches. 

  • Wear High-waist Pants

Wearing high-waisted bottoms are not just trendy. They can also help you appear taller. The high waist gives your lower body an added length that can make your legs look longer. It also emphasizes your legs more than your torso or your upper body, which helps in trying to achieve the long-legged look. As a bonus tip, you can also tuck in your tops instead of letting them hang loose. 

  • Choose Dark-Colored Bottoms

Darker colors like black and deep shades of blue makes us look more slender. By choosing dark-colored bottoms, whether they are jeans, leggings, or tights, our slenderized legs automatically translates to more length. Of course, more length means we look taller!

Another added benefit of wearing darker pants is that they are flexible and can be matched with your other pieces of clothing. Choosing your everyday outfit is one less problem to face in the morning now that you have deep-set colors available. 

  • Wear High Heels

This might be the most obvious solution to our height dilemma but wearing high heels will always do the trick. Of course, there are still more ways to level up our long-legged game. Pairing up your heels with a pair of sexy stockings can make your legs more noticeable and slender. Not only are you able to achieve a long-legged look, you now also look more sophisticated. 

There are different ways to look tall and emphasizing our legs is one way to do them. Hosieries are a big help in achieving a long-legged look. If you are searching for something to pair with your monochromatic clothes or elegant high heels, hosieree.com has a beautiful collection available for you.

Fishnet Outfit Ideas You Should Try

Fishnet Outfit Ideas You Should Try

With the ever-changing trends in fashion, fishnets are no longer just for parties and Halloween costumes. They can also be worn with casual outfits that you can go out in on a normal day. Fishnets look bold and daring so you might think it is challenging to find the perfect outfit that matches with them. That is why we listed down different fishnet outfit ideas that you can try anytime.

  • Fishnets And Ripped Jeans – You must have seen a lot of fashion influencers wearing fishnet pantyhose inside their ripped jeans. Do not worry because you can definitely rock it too! Choose a pair of ripped jeans with the biggest tears so you can flaunt your fishnets inside. This simple and cool twist to the ragged look is very creative and refreshing. 
  • Fishnet And Oversized Sweater – If you are going for an effortless look, wearing oversized sweaters over fishnet leggings is the way to go. It also feels as comfortable as how the overall outfit looks: homey, comfy, and relaxing. This fashionable pair is also flexible because fishnet leggings can be paired with any color that you want. 
  • Fishnet And Denim Shorts – Wearing denim shorts over fishnets have the same feel as the fishnet-ripped jeans pair. However, you would want to choose fishnets with bigger holes to pair with your denim shorts. Because there is a lot more skin to show, large fishnet patterns will not completely defeat the purpose of wearing shorts and will give your legs its well-deserved exposure and appreciation. 
  • Fishnet With Dresses – Throwing in a pair of fishnet tights with your dresses can make your outfit 10 times more glam and eye-catching. Dresses are usually standalone outfits that you try to complement with accessories to complete the whole look. Wearing fishnet tights underneath will change the game. 

Pairing your dress with fishnets can complete the whole look even without trying to accessorize too much.  It also gives you an extra air of femininity, sophistication, and sexiness. The fishnets give you a glow up from fun and chic to glamorous. 

There are different outfit combinations that work perfectly with fishnets. Hosieree.com has a wide variety of fishnet designs that you can try and experiment with. 

Must-Know Tips for Buying Tights for the First Time

Must-Know Tips for Buying Tights for the First Time

Congratulations! If you are reading this, then you have decided to take the plunge and enter the fashion world with a brand new pair of tights. Some of us started our journey wearing tights when we were kids, but if this is your first time, you probably have questions and need a little guidance on finding the best tights for your personality and body type.

Where Should You Buy Tights?

Everyone has a different experience when it comes to purchasing tights. Many choose a cheap pair of tights from a box store or supermarket because they feel they are affordable.

However, this can cause you to waste your money on something that is poor quality, not the right size, and only looks “alright” or a while before they head to the trash.

Choosing to buy your tights online gives you all the information you need regarding the brand and style you are about to purchase. You can usually find some great advice in blogs as well to help you make a more informed buying decision about which tights are going to be the most suitable for you.

Sizing

When choosing a size, remember that there is no single size when it comes to tights. Different brands are also sized differently. The best advice we can give you is to look at the sizing chart for the tights you are interested in and use that to help you find the right size. The size chart helps you choose tights that are appropriate for your height and weight.

Toe Options

You will also come across different toe options that can go with different types of shoes. If you are wearing your tights with sandals or peep-toe shoes, then open toe tights or invisible toe tights are ideal.

Support

Support tights or shaping tights are both different things. Support tights offer more leg compression, while shaping tights offer tummy control. Shaping tights also have built-in shapewear with control top slimming.

Denier

Finally, the denier is another consideration. The higher the denier, the more opaque the tights will be. Sheer tights, for example, have a much lower denier. You can find this information in the details section online when shopping for tights.

The Vintage Appeal of Stockings

The Vintage Appeal of Stockings

A classic pair of stockings is a must-have for any wardrobe. It is an accessory from the past that revolutionized how you built your outfit and continues to be the piece in your closet that can transform your ensemble today. So, why have stockings stood up to the test of time?

Here is what we think about the vintage appeal of stockings and how they continue to offer timeless appeal and style, even today.

What Are Vintage Stockings?

Vintage stockings are the ones that have been around for a while. Opaque stockings, for example, are just one variety that has been a staple in one’s wardrobe, and they are a great piece of fashion history we should all own.

Characteristics of Vintage Stockings

Just because a specific pattern or style has been around for what feels like a lifetime doesn’t necessarily make them classic or timeless. For something to be truly classic, vintage, or retro, it should have been popular before the second half of the 20th century. This means neons and crazy colors are out because they aren’t the timeless style we are showcasing today.

Back Seams

Back seam stockings are a popular feature you can find with many vintage stocking styles. Not only does the back seam offer incredible appeal, but it also gives you that classic and retro feel you are looking for.

Polka Dots

Polka dots are a more subdued and humble design and are still a bold choice for those looking for some excitement but don’t want to rock the back seam look. Polka dots throw some classic style into the mix while also being charming and feminine. They never go out of fashion.

A Little History

Did you know that before the 1940s, it was rare for a woman to leave the house without wearing a pair of silk stockings? It wasn’t appropriate to be barelegged in public during this time unless, of course, they were at the beach. Stockings used to be called hose, and most of them only came up to the mid-thigh and had to be held up with garters.

Before the ’30s, stockings weren’t stretchy either because the fabric wasn’t yet elasticized. So, to achieve the leg’s classic silhouette, they were woven in that way through a process known as Fully Fashioned or tubular knitters. The sizes back then were also determined by foot size.

Today’s stockings provide us with much more variety in patterns, colors, and materials than back then. So, be sure to visit hosieree.com today to explore these options and find something amazing to add to your wardrobe.

How to Jazz Up Your New Year’s Outfit

How to Jazz Up Your New Year's Outfit

The New Year is fast approaching as we continue to make our way through the holidays. With so much going on, have you even found the time yet to plan a special outfit to celebrate the New Year? 

Whether you are staying home or playing it safe with some friends, there are several ways you can jazz up any outfit to make it worthy of a celebratory night.

Go Bold

If you are looking for a bold look, then don’t be afraid to embrace the appeal of sequins and glitter. We are seeing this look all over the place, so why not embrace it? You can choose to go for a full sequin look or add a few small accents here and there to make your ensemble pop. 

Glittery tights are a great way to embrace the look without having to go full glitter and glam. 

Glittery tights are also good if you find yourself going from work to a night out. You can transform your work look into an evening look easily with just the legwear you choose.

Go Metallic

If glitter isn’t your thing, but you still want to make an impression, then try out some metallic legwear. It offers the same vibe but is more subdued. Metallic colors, gold damask patterns, and polka dots are also trending this year, and all go well with gold and silver accents. 

Shiny leggings can add some urbanism into your New Year ensemble as well. It is a good bit away from regular, plain legwear, and they go great with any top you choose. 

Plain Leggings

You can even choose to go with a comfortable pair of solid colored microfiber leggings and pair them with a crisp white shirt and some holiday accessories. Add a few red accents, whether it is in your handbag or earrings, and you have yourself a festive outfit for the holidays. 

Have a new evergreen top you are itching to wear this holiday season? Why not dress it up with a pair of bold and dramatic leather leggings. You can mingle at a cocktail party, attend a work function, or have a good time at home in this outfit.

If you still need ideas or you are on the hunt for the perfect legwear for this holiday season, be sure to visit hosieree.com and browse our amazing selection. 

Stay Warm And Cozy This Season With These Winter Must-Haves

Winter is almost here, and that means sweaters, coats, and hats. Unfortunately, a lot of popular wardrobe pieces such as summer dresses and shorts do not provide any warmth. That is why many of us feel that we have to choose comfort over style during the colder months.

However, before you put away your summer clothes, check out the warm weather options at Hosieree.com. Many of our pieces can be paired with your summer favorites to create an appropriate winter look. Here are some ideas to get you started.

Layer With Winter Leggings

Winter leggings like the 3D Winter Leggings and the FleeceLined Leather Leggings are specifically designed to keep you warm. They are made with thicker materials that wick moisture and provide insulation. These staples are great for any winter wardrobe because they can be worn alone like any of your favorite leggings but are slim enough to be worn under a pair of pants.

Change Out Your Tights

Tights are always a winter must-have. However, not all of them are comfortable to wear during winter. In fact, even some dark opaque tights are lightweight and do not provide much warmth. However, there are tights meant to withstand even the coldest winter weather. The Arctic 500 Microfiber Tights and the Belissima Everest 100 Winter Tights are wind- and cold-resistant. They can be worn under your favorite dress, skirt, or pair of shorts, or they can go under a pair of slacks for added protection against low temperatures.

Wear Your Summer Tights

Before you put away your favorite tights for the summer, consider wearing them instead with a pair of cozy leg warmers. Leg warmers like the Cazzola Gaetano 25698 Fall Fashion Leg Warmer and the Koto Leg Warmer add much-needed warmth. They look fantastic layered over boots or even jeans. They can transform any of your favorite tights into winter tights, and they will help you stay stylish all season long.

These are only a few of the options we offer at Hosieree.com to help keep you warm in the winter. The best part is that all of them are flexible and can help enhance your existing wardrobe. So before packing up your spring and summer clothes for the season, check out our selection and find pieces that will make those comfortable no matter the weather outside.
