Pink ombre and white for Spring

There's nothing quite like wearing a beautifully crisp, white cotton outfit, in the Spring time. It adds style this time of year, and it never fails to uplift my spirits! To bring white bang up to date, wear ultra feminine embroidered and embellished cotton pieces, teamed with vibrant coloured tights to make your girly outfit pop.

Tights, Bag, Shoes, Skirt, Top
We loved the look at Ruffian's show at London Fashion Week, particularly the white ensemble with colour tights. We have picked some designer and high-street pieces so you can re-create the look. It's so pretty, unique and makes the perfect outfit for a special occasion, this Spring time.

Jonathan Aston Nikki Dip Dye Tights in Pink Soda
We were all so excited for the arrival of the new Jonathan Aston Nikki Dip Dye Tightsoffering a colourful dip dyed look in pink soda. These gorgeous ombre tights will really stand out against white, or team them with another block colour such as grey, black, or a clashing bright purple! Show off graduating colour change in the print tights with a shorter hemline at informal occasions, or create a casual and fun weekend look.

We chose some sky scraper sandals to nail the funky tights and sandals look but if you're not keen on adopting this new trend then team your coloured tights with some feminine pointed court shoes.

The design of the ombre tights are a celebration of individuality... be bold, bright, exuberant and have fun with fashion. Mix and match to find your perfect look to show off your injection of colour!

Kate's flawless pins

Wills and Kate have absolutely enthralled the crowds at every event that they have attended, on their Royal Tour of Australia and New Zealand. The Royal couple, and adoreable baby George have been snapped constantly during their visit. Although the gorgeous heir to the thrown has been hogging the limelight from his parents, the stunningly beautiful outfits, worn by The Duchess, were never going to go unnoticed!

Kate has worn some refreshingly bright and beautiful pieces with her trademark skin tone hosiery and LK Bennett Court shoes.

The Duchess always looks impeccably polished, from head to toe, and has found the perfect hosiery colour match to achieve flawlessly, elegant pins on every occasion.

To achieve lovely leg perfection, like Kate, pull on some Charnos Simply Bare Hold Ups, 7 denier sheer hold up stockings made from sideria yarns. The 7 denier hold ups are so sheer that they provide an invisible coverage with a hint of colour in Nude or Sun Kissed. Don't ask us how it works but the sideria yarns cleverly cool your legs on hot summer days, and give 15 denier strength!

Wild Wednesday :)

It's our favourite day of the week in the office again! Wild Wednesday has arrived and Nicola skipped in bright and early, looking stunning as usual, in her Gipsy Seam Bow Fishnet Hold Ups.

Like a pro she draped herself across a chair and showed off her fishnet hold ups to the max! After some very entertaining leg kicking, chair swivelling and plenty of hair flicking, work resumed as normal...well as normal as it can be on a Wild Wednesday! There was some renditions of Justin Timberlake, some dancing and the usual hilarious anecdotes along the way... eventually Nicola's shift came to an end and she sauntered out of the office in her Italian Stockings...

seamed hold up stockings

Gipsy Seam Bow Hold Ups are super sexy fishnet hold ups with back seams, cute ankle bow and luxurious lace tops. Black fishnets are very elegant and these seamed hold up stockings are a great price too from Essex'ee Legs.

Join us next week, to see what gorgeous hosiery the lovely Nicola is wearing and for some more Wild Wednesday antics! :)

Two trends in one! Floral print and over the knee tights

With over knee hosiery gracing the legs of celebs and catwalk models too, lots of funky variations of over knee tights have emerged on the high street. My current favourites are the Jonathan Aston Daisy Over Knee Tights. The fashion tights have a beautifully elegant twist with an, on trend, floral daisy trim. As floral design is one of the biggest prints this Spring, Jonathan Aston have nailed two of the biggest looks, right now, in one beautiful design!
