Using Sheer Tights to Your Advantage

Using Sheer Tights to Your Advantage

Once the warmer weather comes back around, we will be ditching our typical winter legwear and replacing it with bare legs to combat the heat. 

However, who really wants to go out bare-legged anyway? If you have less than flawless legs, you may want a way to cover up tiny blemishes that bother you. Well, sheer tights can definitely be used to your advantage.

Disguise Imperfections

What we notice isn’t necessarily noticed by others but how we feel when we go out has a lot to do with our self-confidence. So, if you would rather not go out bare-legged, then go with a great pair of tights.

When choosing tights, find a shade that is closest to your natural skin tone. The best tights are a low denier and are almost whisper-like on your legs. Many consider tights great makeup for your legs. They are like a primer for the legs.

No Pale Legs

After months of winter hibernation, our bare legs may be pale and not ready for a public debut. This is where the right tights can step in and save the day. Tights fit well, can be worn with open-toed shoes, hide your pale skin, and won’t sag. 

Depending on the shade you choose, you can make your legs look amazing. Sheer nude tights are great for every skin tone, including fair or dark skin. 

Glam Up Your Outfit

Tights are also a great way to glam up any outfit you may be wearing. They can be worn with a dress or skirt in cooler weather or even under shorts in warmer weather. You can choose a pair of patterned or fashion tights and pair them with your favorite jean shorts for a bold look. 

For the winter, you can protect your bare legs from the cold with tights and pair them with an over-the-knee boot.

With so many different ways to wear your tights during any season, you want to start building your collection now. Visit us at hosieree.com to choose some new tights and build your wardrobe.

3 Reasons Why Leggings Make Great Loungewear

How many pairs of leggings do you own? They are great legwear to have in any wardrobe because they are incredibly versatile and comfortable. However, you don’t even have to find ways to dress your leggings up for a day out; you can also enjoy your leggings at home as all-day loungewear.

Not Restricting

When lounging around at home, we want to be comfortable and feel unrestricted, right? That isn’t easy to do in a pair of stiff jeans. Yes, we can throw on some pajama bottoms, but sometimes we want to also feel a bit more put together than that  even while just lounging at home. This is where leggings step in and save the day.

Leggings won’t dig into your skin, cause any chafing, or prove to be uncomfortable at all. You will also find it incredibly satisfying pulling them up compared to fighting with a pair of jeans.

They Always Fit

Quarantine life leave you with a few extra pounds? Well, leggings don’t take notice. While your other pants might feel a bit tight these days, you will always smile when putting on a great pair of leggings. They won’t be too tight, and they will prove to be comfortable no matter what.

Natural Range of Motion

Another reason leggings make great loungewear is because they allow you to maintain a natural range of motion. You can stretch out on the couch, do a few yoga poses, or break out into dance. The movement possibilities are endless.

As you can see, leggings really are the new loungewear  when you want them to be. We also can’t forget that they are also totally acceptable as part of our going out ensemble as well, especially when we want to show off that new loose-fitting top we bought online while lounging on the couch in our leggings.

The Controversial Side of Leggings

The Controversial Side of Leggings

We have all probably heard legging and tight horror stories over the years. Maybe someone was wearing leggings that were just too see-through, or they paired their legwear with the wrong top. When wearing leggings and other legwear, the key is knowing when and when not to rock this style.

Today we will look at the more controversial side of leggings and tell you how to properly wear your favorite legwear.

Know the Difference

The first step in wearing your legwear correctly is knowing the difference between the different types. 

Tights: This is a piece of clothing that is often made of a thicker material compared to pantyhose and fits closely over the feet, legs, and waist. 

Holdups: These are stockings or tights held up by sticky material, elastic at the top, or straps. It allows you to achieve the look of tights without having a tight band around your hips. They are comfortable to wear.

Leggings: These are often considered tight and form-fitting and extend from the waist to the ankles. They can be made from various materials, including Lycra, nylon, cotton, or a polyester-cotton blend. 

Stockings: These are often made from a more translucent material and often refer to thigh highs and nylon stockings. They fit closely over the foot and are often held up by garters or a strip at the upper thigh. Holdups are closely related to the stocking. 

How to Wear

Each of these legwear types is certainly a staple for our closet. Leggings are often touted as the most comfortable, but many don’t qualify them as pants. So, we need to be careful about how and where we wear this wardrobe staple.

Leggings

When choosing to wear leggings to work, for example, be sure to pair them with a great top. Leggings are form-fitting, so balance that out with a loose-fitting shirt and cover your behind while hitting your lower thigh area.

Tights

Tights are a great way to show off your legs and look great with a dress or skirt. Match your tights to your skirt or dress or even match them to your shoes. For a classy and elegant look, pair your plain tights with a black dress and heels. 

Holdups

These can be worn when you want to glamorize an everyday outfit. However, keep in mind the length of the dress or skirt you are wearing with them. It needs to be long enough to cover the holdups’ top when you are sitting and standing.

Stockings

Stockings are good for tummy trimming, making a fashion statement, dressing up, or showing off the legs. However, the same kind of rules apply here as they do with holdups. Make sure what you wear covers the top part of the stockings while sitting or standing.

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.

Why Luxury Pajamas Are The Perfect Gift This Christmas

Why Luxury Pajamas Are The Perfect Gift This Christmas

With the emergence of COVID-19, we have all been wearing our loungewear more often than usual. That is because loungewear and pajama sets are ideal for social distancing. They help you stay comfortable, but they are stylish enough that you still feel elegant while working around the house.

A classic pajama set is a wonderful gift idea. However, a luxury set that is made of indulgently soft materials and comes in a chic design is even better.

Why Give Pajamas For Christmas?

Pajama sets make a great gift for a number of reasons. First, nearly everyone wears them, so you do not have to worry about your relative or friend never using the gift. Second, since they come in general sizes like small, medium, large, and extra-large, there is no need to fuss about getting the exact fit. They are also affordable, so even pajamas of the highest quality are within your means. Finally, pajamas let you give the gift of comfort, which is something everyone can appreciate.

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.

10 Tips To Make Your Tights Last Longer

10 Tips To Make Your Tights Last Longer

Are you tired of buying new tights over and over again? Indeed, caring for tights is challenging because they are so fragile. However, it is possible to make them last longer if you know how to care for them properly (and that does not involve storing them in the freezer!).

Here are some tips to help you: 

    1.     Purchase tights that are larger than your original size. However, they should only be big enough that wearing them will not be stressful for you. If you have to keep pulling them up because they are too loose, there is a high chance that you will break the fibers. 

    2.     It is better to purchase opaque tights because they are more durable than sheer tights. The higher the denier content is, the stronger the fiber is.

    3.     Itis best to purchase tights with reinforced toes. 

    4.     You haveto invest in tights, which means you should spend more for quality and durability as much as possible.

    5.     Your nails and skin must be smooth before you put on your tights. 

    6.     Apply some lotion on your legs prior to wearing tights. However, make sure it has completely dried before you slip into a pair of hosiery. 

    7.     Sit down, get one leg of the tights, slide your toes in, and pull the leg over your heel and up your own leg. Do the same for the other leg.

    8.     When it comes to washing tights, make sure to turn them inside out. Place them in a mesh bag meant for delicates, but make sure no bras are included in the bag because the hooks could snag the tights. 

    9.     Wash tights on a delicate cycle with cool water. Keep in mind not to use softener. 

    10.   Never dry your tights in a dryer. Instead, line dry them. 

Those are just some of the things you can do to make your tights last longer. Doing so is important because tights are incredibly comfortable to wear and highly versatile, so you do not want to go without them. You can wear almost anything over them, which makes them a staple in a woman’s wardrobe. 

With these tips, you do not have to go through multiple tights every few months. It is essential for you to invest in quality tights from well-known brands, even if it means you have to pay a bit more. Trust us when we say that it is worth it. 

If you are looking for high-quality tights, you know where to go. Here at Hosieree.com, we have European tights that will last and make you look and feel good every day. Feel free to browse our products to find the one that is right for you.

What Makes European Hosiery So High-Quality?

What Makes European Hosiery So High-Quality?

When you are shopping for hosiery, you will quickly learn that there is a broad range of quality out there. There are inexpensive hosiery products you can buy at the drugstore for pennies. Those are fine for one or two wears, but they quickly tear, stretch, and rip. Because of their low quality, you have to buy more pairs of pantyhose, which ultimately ends up costing more over time.

On the other hand, there is high-quality European hosiery. European hosiery has a global reputation for being the best-quality hosiery on the market. Read on to find out why.

Fiber Quality

Fibers are the threads that make up any garment, including hosiery. These threads can be made with a number of natural materials such as cotton, wool, and silk as well as synthetic materials like polyester, nylon, and rayon. Fiber quality is determined by:

  • Length and length uniformity
  • Strength and micronaire
  • Color and leaf grade

The quality of the fiber has a direct impact on both the strength and durability of the material and the comfort and softness the person using it feels. High-quality fibers are strong, resistant to fading, and soft to the touch. European hosiery is made with extremely high-quality fibers, which means that European hosiery is longer-lasting and more comfortable for the wearer.

Strong Stitching

Another factor impacting the quality of any garment is the stitching. There are a variety of signs of poor-quality stitching that are easy to identify, including the following:

  • Unraveling, snagging, and loose stitches
  • Missed stitches and crooked stitch lines
  • Mismatched stitching threads
  • Holes around the thread

Poor stitching makes a garment fall apart in the wash and eventually leads to holes and tears. European hosiery uses stitching techniques that have been developed over centuries. These stitching techniques hold the garment together for a lifetime, so you do not have to worry about buying multiple pairs.

Pattern Design

Finally, what makes European hosiery so high-quality is the patterns. Patterning is an art form that requires dedication and skill. The right pattern for hosiery provides flexibility for all body styles but also fits like a glove. A good pattern fits comfortably at the waist and smoothens your waistline. It provides both room and support in the hips and the back. Finally, it skims the legs, providing a smooth line and a lot of comfort. Hosiery made with a good pattern never loses its shape and is flattering on the wearer.

Those factors greatly affect the quality of hosiery. If you would like to see the difference for yourself, check out our vast selection of European hosiery at Hosieree.com. Once you experience the difference in European quality, we know you will never go back to drugstore options again!
