The Dos and Don’ts Of Putting Your Tights On

So you’ve bought a new pair of tights and you’re excited to put them on. Allow us to stop you there for a minute.

Even if you have the best European-made hosiery like the ones we offer at Hosieree.com, you still need to be more careful in handling them, especially if you’ve gone for tights with a lower denier like the Angel 15 Seamless Tights. The lower the denier, the more delicate the fabric will be.

If you want your tights to last longer, you need to take care of them properly. Here are the dos and don’ts to remember when you’re putting on your tights:

Dos:

  • Make sure your tights are the right size. Before even putting them on, make sure that the size you purchased will fit you properly. Hosieree.com has size charts for every pair of hose so you can pick the one that’s right for you.
  • Prevent snags on fingernails. Make sure your fingers are trimmed. You can even go further by using hand lotion to ensure that your fingers will not snag your legwear. The last thing you want to do is to accidentally rip your tights.
  • Treat your feet right. Good hosiery care starts with good foot care. Since your feet will come in contact with the material, make sure your toenails are not long or sharp by trimming them. Just like with your fingers, use a good-quality body lotion to make your feet soft. This will help avoid premature laddering.
  • Handle your tights with love. We know you’re excited about the newest addition to your wardrobe, but please take great care of your tights when you’re pulling them out of the packet. Be extra careful so those new tights of yours will last longer.

Don’ts:

  • Stop tugging. When removing the product from its package, remember to do so gently. Gather your tights from the top to the toe carefully. Don’t pull on the fabric too hard as the material might break and you might end up with runs and tears on your tights before even having the chance to wear them.
  • Do not ever rush. Whatever you do, do not rush putting on any kind of hosiery. We know you’re busy and you probably have a lot of things to attend to, but it’s important to take some time in putting on your tights. Smooth the fabric up to your leg as you go. Here’s a guide on how to do this the right way:
    • Pull the first leg up to the knee and then the second leg.
    • After doing so, work on each leg alternatively until you get to your panty.
    • Pull your tights up gently over your buttocks and stomach.
    • Leave enough room in the toe area.

We all know that hosiery doesn’t last forever, but we can try to preserve it to get the most out of them. You can only do this by taking good care of them. Care for your tights and other hosiery items as if you’re caring for your skin. You’ll be glad you did.

Go Classy for Classics: Pairing Classy Hosiery with Classic Blue Outfits

The year 2020’s pantone color of the year is classic blue. As fashion and design goes back to the classics, this is a nice time to explore your style in the same direction. 

Whip out some of your classic blue outfits or add touches of blue to your wardrobe that will keep you on trend for the coming season. Best of all, classic blue can be a regal but also playful color—and what better way to up the ante than adding the classy classic hosiery to finish your outfits?

Check out these three ways to wear blue outfits with hosiery for next year’s fashion season.

Classic and Formal Wear

Just because bare legs at cocktail parties are already on-trend does not mean you cannot bring back the appeal of pantyhose at the next formal gathering. Tights can give a dash of oomph to your outfit, especially when paired with a darker shade of blue for your dress.

This works particularly for evening events, as a pair of black pantyhose with a dress gives it a more formal vibe, and elevates the mini dress into a fabulous and fancy affair.

The Classic Office On-trend Look

Who says dresses can’t be power suits? Unleash your stylish femme fatale by pairing classic black tights with blue dresses or skirts in the office. Tights can that one factor that transforms a look from boring to business in one fell swoop.

There are two ways to go about this. You can opt for neutral tights, which will create a smooth, matte finish for your gams and highlight a classic blue outfit. Another way is to create a slight contrast with black tights and pumps paired with a blue dress or a power suit with a pencil skirt, if you really, really mean business as usual.

The Playful Navy Dress

The navy dress can be a Sunday wear or an after-office stylish look. You can pull off both looks by pairing the right type of hosiery with the dress on each occasion.

Colored tights can bring a playful contrast, whether you opt for a burgundy pair or a classic white or cream combo. The former will have a very trendy look, while the latter has a touch of a classic sailor look.

Lace tights also work wonders with a navy dress. Pair a plain navy one piece with textured lace tights and finish it off with sleek black pumps for a party-ready look.

How to Properly Care for Fine Hosiery

How to Properly Care for Fine Hosiery

Tights, leggings, pantyhose, and stockings are some of the essential clothing pieces for cold weather. They are particularly helpful in creating a layered ensemble that’s not only warm and comfortable, but chic and stylish, too.

You surely love your Hosierre.com hosiery and we know that you want to make them last. Since you’re likely to find yourself using them more often this season, we thought we’d share with you some essential care and maintenance tips that will help you enjoy your treasured hosiery longer.

1. Know when and how to wash.

Let’s make this clear: you don’t have to wash your hosiery after every wear. If they don’t get soiled, you can wear them up to three times before washing. This is particularly the case during winter, when you don’t really sweat a lot.

Think about your tights and leggings as though they are pants. Let’s be real here. How often do you wash your pants and jeans, really?

For hosiery, the less you wash, the better, because they will last longer. As long as they don’t smell and they aren’t stained, you can wear them one or two times more before washing.

Furthermore, you should know how to wash them properly. Here at Hosierre.com, we recommend hand washing and refrain from wringing them. Simply hang them by the band to make sure that they retain their shape.

2. Know how to handle them.

Fine hosiery is delicate and you need to handle and wear them with as much care as possible. When handling and wearing your hosiery, make sure your toe and fingernails do not have rough edges. It’s also best to remove jewelry before wearing tights, stocking, or pantyhose. Make sure you remove them with care, too.

3. Know how to store them.

Hosiery are not like school socks that you can roll into a ball. Fold your hosiery in half, with one leg over the other. Then, fold in half once more before putting them neatly in a drawer. Storing hosiery this way will help preserve the fibers.

Looking Chic In Your Leggings

Looking Chic In Your Leggings

Few pieces of clothing are true fall staples quite like leggings. They can be worn under a skirt or dress, they can be paired with a tunic or cozy sweater, or they can be worn to the gym as part of the perfect trendy athleisure outfit. At Hosieree.com, we pride ourselves on carrying only the best European made leggings, so you always have just the pair you’re looking for to flawlessly pull off all your fall 2019 legging looks.

Due to their form fitting nature, a lot of women feel a little intimidated by leggings. Sure, they may wear them at home or under a skirt or pants for an additional warmth layer, but they’re not truly comfortable embracing all of the potential a great pair of leggings hold. At Hosieree.com, we want you to love your leggings, and we have just the tips you need to feel confident and chic every time you put them on:

  • Pair with a denim jacket – If you’re looking to take the athleisure trend to the next level, while still maintaining a high-fashion look, it’s time to take out your favorite denim jacket. A pair of leggings with a crop or form fitting top is the perfect way to show off stand-out denim. You’ll avoid the denim-on-denim look that can be too much when you pair the jacket with jeans, while creating the perfect carefree brunch look.
  • Dress them up – A structured pair of leggings like those we feature at Hosieree.com are perfect for dressing up. A sleek pair of leggings looks great paired with an embellished blazer and bootie or pump, giving you a night-out look that is as comfortable as it is effortlessly chic.
  • Go with a blouse – Airy blouses with plenty of movement seem like they’re almost made to be paired with a sleek and structured legging. If you’re attending a lunch, an afternoon meeting, or running errands, you’re creating ideal balance within a completely timeless look.
  • Classic cozy – One of the most popular ways you’re going to see leggings throughout each fall season is within the classic cozy look. Take your leggings and pair with an oversized sweatshirt, a chunky sweater, and a scarf or hat, and you’re ready for all those Instagram worthy moments at the pumpkin patch.

No fall wardrobe is truly complete without the perfect leggings. To find your perfect pair, see what we have in store at Hosieree.com today!

3 Spring and Summer Leg Trends for 2019

3 Spring and Summer Leg Trends for 2019

Looking for the latest trends to dress your legs for spring and summer? Then you have come to the right place. With new seasons come new opportunities to show off that beautiful hosiery you have been adding to your wardrobe. We are here today to fill you in on the latest spring and summer leg trends for 2019, so you can start pulling out those new clothes for this season and accessorize appropriately.

Floral Prints

Floral prints are here to stay. Spring is always a great time of the year to rock floral prints and patterns, and this year is no exception. You can go for a more subtle floral look with lace hosiery. This kind of hosiery also pairs well with a variety of different textures. The most popular lace color in floral for this year is white.

Crochet tights are also just as popular; however, they are much thicker than lace so you may want to avoid this material on those much warmer days.

Colored Tight Trends for 2019

Color coordinated looks are also trending this season and matching each piece is becoming the fashionable thing to do. Some of the more popular color choices this year include all shades of nudes including pale pinks and peaches, white, colorful shades like yellow, emerald green, ruby red, fuchsia, and orange, and the bold colors in the neon spectrum.

Knee Highs are Making a Comeback

We are also seeing a reoccurrence of knee highs this season as well. They were spotted on the Marc Jacobs catwalk recently and are now being paired with cycling shorts, pleated skirts, and short dresses.

Other styles that may be creeping in for the spring and summer season include the wet look hold ups, denim, and latex that have been inspired by the looks from the 80s. As usual, we also see fishnets, graphic prints, and fun patterns like diamonds and stripes.

Dare to Be Creative

Now is as good a time as any to get bold and be creative with your wardrobe. Don’t be afraid to show your wild side with the bright neon colors collection or show your tame side with the pale pink tights paired with a cute pair of shorts and sandals. No matter what you choose, the biggest piece of advice we have to offer is to make sure you are comfortable and confident wearing whatever you choose to express yourself.
