Caffeine leggings claimed to aid weight loss

Caffeine leggings claimed to aid weight loss
New caffeine-infused leggings from the US are claiming to assist wearers in rapid weight loss.

A new leg wear development from the US is claiming to help wearers to shift unwanted cellulite.

Manufacturers of the Lytess caffeine-infused leggings, are advertising the legwear as being the perfect way to lose inches, by sitting still rather than exercising.

The first product of its kind, it claims to be able to take two inches off hips and more than one inch from thighs, by simply wearing them for five hours a day for three full weeks.

Lytess has already sold 3.5 million pairs in France, despite scientific doubts over whether they provide a placebo effect to dieters or they can actually induce weight loss.

In a statement published by Abc News, Lytess explained: "These tests have been performed by an independent ... laboratory on a panel of over 34 individuals, who were required not to change their lifestyle which means: no diet, no exercise while wearing their leggings."

Lady Gaga wears fishnet tights to Starbucks

Lady Gaga wears fishnet tights to Starbucks
Lady Gaga was pictured by the Daily Mail yesterday visiting Starbucks, dressed in sky scraper heels to pick up a coffee.

The 25-year-old singer clung onto her assistant in black Louboutin heels, accompanied by fishnet tights and an oversized red leather hat.

She wore a Born This Way t-shirt underneath a large gold studded jacket, while attempting to shield her face from the press.

Gaga's outfit was reminiscent of a famous outfit worn by Kelly Osbourne, who wore sparkly studded tights with a large red hat, as she joined the Pussycat Dolls on stage last year.

Lady Gaga, real name Stefani Germanotta, has hit the headlines this week after admitting to becoming bankrupt on her recent Monster's Ball Tour, due partly to her outrageous wardrobe.

The 200 date show saw the Poker Face singer change outfits a dozen times during each performance.

Pippa Middleton is fast becoming a style icon to rival her famous younger sister, as she shows you do not have to be old to dress classy.

Photographed in Paris wearing a red printed skirt, accompanied by a black blazer and sheer tights, she looked as sophisticated as Kate.

While nude tights are often considered to be a staple of older women, Pippa showed that they can be worn by women of all ages to give a smooth and tanned look to legs.

After the royal wedding between Kate Middleton and Prince William, older sister Pippa Middleton has been flung into the fashion spotlight.

The popular socialite has gained a large following from men in particular, after appearing in a figure hugging white bridesmaid dress at the occasion in April.

Men's underwear not high priority when packing

Men's underwear not high priority when packing
New research has revealed that British men may need some extra help from their partners when it comes to packing for a summer holiday.

The majority of males claim they would bring only three pairs of men's underwear on a seven day holiday, a survey conducted by sunshine.co.uk.

This compared to ten pairs brought by women, who also admitting to taking 20 more items of clothing than men, despite only wearing 62 per cent of them.

It was therefore no surprise that a majority of the 35 per cent polled revealed they were well over their allocated luggage allowance, when flying to or from the UK on their last holiday.

Unsurprisingly, with less clothes and so few pairs of pants men seem to be staying within the rules as they pack light for their summer flights.

British brides 'pairing tights with flats rather than heels'

British brides 'pairing tights with flats rather than heels'
Growing numbers of British brides are opting to wear unconventional footwear for their big day, according to a leading industry expert.

Flat shoes are increasingly being paired with the bride's choice of tights, and hosiery, in place of the traditional high-heel, claims the Wedding Planner School.

Senior tutor at the institution, Amber Hunter, noted that the change could have come about because of a growing realisation that high-heels are not the most practical shoes when it comes to tying the knot.

She noted: "Brides have always regretted choosing four inch heels for their big day, but the smart ones prepare well and don a pair of flats at some point in the day.

"Outdoor receptions on grass ideally require flat shoes to prevent sinking ... but they are most valuable in the evening for the first dance."

Vogue recently revealed that Lily Allen will be wearing both flat and heeled shoes at her upcoming wedding - with both pairs set to be designed by Rupert Sanderson.

Children refuse to take GCSE's in socks

Children refuse to take GCSE's in socks
Children in Coventry were banned from taking their GCSE maths exam after wearing the wrong shoes to school.

The trainer-wearing 15 and 16-year-olds were sent home 20 minutes before their exam, after they refused to sit the exams in their socks.

Parents have condemned the teachers for a sudden turn around on school uniform policy that could severely affect their children's GCSE grades.

A total of 17 children were sent home and could now have to re-sit the exam paper with next year's class.

Patrick Doherty complained that he did not want to sit the exam without his shoes on, for fear that his feet may smell.

His mother Nicki Doherty claimed: "I am flabbergasted. The school clearly cares more about dress code than they do about the children's education."

Fashion legwear essentials for this year's festivals

Fashion legwear essentials for this year's festivals
Music fans heading off to UK festivals can take advantage of exciting leg wear looks to stay stylish and warm this summer.

Kate Williams, fashion writer at shopping and socialising website OSOYOU.com, claimed that socks and tights are staple fashion accessories to pack for camping weekends.

Ms Williams said: "It's always a good idea to include some tights in your festival kit," due to unpredictable UK weather in the spring and summer months.

When the sun is shining, she added: "Ankle socks look great this season with a stacked wedge and cute summer dress."

While spring and summer may ordinarily see a return to bare legs, this may not be practical or comfortable, therefore a pair of signature tights or slouched socks still remain key fashion essentials.

Sports socks 'keep feet fit'

Sports socks 'keep feet fit'
Brits looking to get fit in time for their summer holiday are being urged to think carefully about their choice of wardrobe before beginning their exercise routines.

Many people spend a long time choosing gym or running trainers, however David Castle, editor of Running Fitness magazine, claimed that socks can be "almost as important as the shoes themselves".

Mr Castle added: "Wear a lightweight performance sock that wicks sweat away from the feet."

"Don't be tempted to go sockless - you'll pay the price."

He suggests that by wearing socks with additional padding or without seams, exercising can be a lot more comfortable.

While a muscle injury can cut short a workout, so can blisters, underlining the importance of selecting sensible sports socks before joining a gym or starting jogging routine.

Gisele shows toned pins in leggings

Gisele shows toned pins in leggings
Gisele Bundchen was photographed yesterday leaving her local gym flaunting her perfectly lean figure.

The super model wore a long white vest, accompanied by light grey leggings and sporty ankle socks to elongate her long toned legs.

Brazilian model Gisele has been hailed recently for her entrepreneurial business skills, after making lucrative property and licensing deals.

At only 30 years old she is reportedly on her way to becoming a billionaire, thanks to her high profile campaigns for Versace and H & M, coupled with well researched investments.

She appeared last week at the 39th AFI Life Achievement Awards honouring Morgan Freeman in California.

Dressed in a silver low-cut gown by Oscar de la Renta, Giselle's figure looked defined yet feminine with added diamond accessories and a fuchsia pink bow tied round her waist.

Fergie poses in stockings for magazine

Fergie poses in stockings for magazine
Black Eyed Peas singer Fergie revealed her impressive figure in a photo-shoot for July's edition of US magazine Allure.

Fergie wore a racy pair of black sheer stockings, accompanied by knickers and black platform heels.

Her La Perla designer underwear was worn with a Thierry Mugler, black bat-wing top, in the powerful images taken by photographer Norma Jean Roy.

The 35-year-old front woman's figure looked toned and tanned, as she admitted to the magazine that the press often mistakenly print that she is pregnant, due to her fluctuating weight.

She revealed to Allure that she tried to achieve her figure through exercise and healthy eating, adding: "I'm just trying to age gracefully."

Despite the four band members concentrating increasingly on their solo careers, they were set to perform together at a concert in New York on June 14th, however it was cancelled after severe weather conditions.

Nurses banned from wearing leggings

Nurses banned from wearing leggings
Nurses in the East and North Hertfordshire Trust have been told to stick to a strict new uniform policy, after receiving complaints from hospital patients.

The new guidelines have banned them from wearing leggings, shorts and mini-skirts while at work.

Employees were told that cases of "excessive cleavage" and exposed tattoos must be covered when on shift, whether they were clinical or non-uniform staff.

Hannah Middleton, Unison branch secretary for the trust, claimed that audits would be taken to ensure that all staff are following the new and improved dress code properly.

Ms Middleton said: "There had been complaints from patients about members of staff baring their midriff and problems with health and safety, as some had been wearing sandals."

Nurses can opt for a pair of sensible black tights to remain professional while treating patients.

Socks 'keep feet cool' this summer

Socks 'keep feet cool' this summer
People wanting to take up an exercise routine to get them fit for summer should ensure they have the right form of footwear to improve their performance.

A pair of sports socks and appropriate trainers to suit your sport are essential purchases according to Jon Lipsey, editor of Men's Fitness magazine.

Mr Lipsey said: "You might think that not wearing socks will help keep your feet cool when it's hot but if it is warm then your feet will get sweaty, and when they get sweaty they'll rub against the inside of the shoe, which can cause blistering."

He advised against running without socks, as this can damage the skin on your feet, especially when attempted for the first time.

According to a report from the Society of Chiropodists and Podiatrists, inappropriate sports footwear can also cause injuries, with 77 per cent of people admitting to not wearing the correct shoes.

Scientist makes futuristic sock predictions

Scientist makes futuristic sock predictions
A scientist at Yahoo San Francisco has made a series of interesting predictions on how the internet will look in the year 2020.

As one of Dr Elizabeth Churchill's premonitions she suggested that socks will contain microchips to prevent them from becoming separated from one another.

Dr Churchill said: "My favourite scenario … calls for the development of sentient socks that can find each other.

''I want a sock drawer that resembles Noah's ark, with neatly assembled socks stacked two-by-two."

Other suggestions made by Yahoo!'s principal research scientist were ovens that could send emails when they needed to be cleaned and a fridge that could order food to fill its shelves when they became empty.

According to Dr Churchill's website, she claims to be interested primarily in how technology can fuel communication and connections.

US Airways allows man in underwear to fly

US Airways allows man in underwear to fly
US Airways has come under fire from passengers and the media this week for allowing a cross-dressing man to fly, despite wearing a very revealing outfit.

The white haired man boarded the plane wearing electric blue women's knickers and a matching cropped top, accompanied by thigh-high black stockings and stiletto heels.

Passengers complained about his inappropriate outfit, however US Airways allowed him to stay seated, as according to a spokeswoman the airline does not have a dress code policy.

She claimed: "Obviously, if their private parts are exposed, that's not appropriate. So if they're not exposing their private parts, they're allowed to fly."

Only a few days later University of New Mexico football player Deshon Marman sparked questions on the airlines rules regarding clothing, after being removed from a flight for not pulling his trousers up to sit on his waist.

Christina Aguilera has been spotted in a very unflattering outfit, as she made her way to a California recording studio yesterday.

In pictures from the Daily Mail, the singer wore a pair of impossibly tight black leggings, accompanied by a large red hat and a striped jacket.

Her mismatched outfit also contained silver Christian Loboutin heels and an unusual bleached crimped hairstyle.

The singer has become infamous over the past year for wearing unflattering leggings as trousers, leaving the 30-year-old mum exposing what many fashionistas deem too much of her newly curvaceous figure.

US TV show The Voice has seen Christina Aguilera flung back into the media spotlight, as she joins Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine and Cee-Lo Green as a vocal coach and judge.

Adam Levine recently performed a live duet of his new song Moves Like Jagger with Christina in front of the live audience.

Messy sock drawers 'can be a turn-off'
People's clothes storage habits could be affecting their love life, a US study by premium dating site Chemistry.com has revealed.

The top ten cities with the messiest sock drawers in America were unveiled by the survey, which authors believe may reveal the unorganised personalities of their owners.

Dr Helen Fisher, biological anthropologist and chief scientific advisor to Chemistry.com, said: "An organised sock drawer can reveal a lot about a person's personality and biology."

From her studies, Dr Fisher revealed that people who may appear outwardly detail-orientated and image conscious can often have the messiest sock drawers.

People from Charleston in West Virginia were found to have the most unorganised sock drawers, followed by the residents of Cedar Rapids in Iowa and Fort Smith, Arkansas.

Couples who have recently began dating can take a peek inside their partners sock drawer to find out if they really are as neat and tidy as they appear.

Beyonce headlined this year's Glastonbury Music Festival at the weekend and earned glowing reviews after an energetic performance.

Her husband Jay Z had performed on the central pyramid stage at last year's show and could be seen watching from the front of the crowd.

Socks off for toe wrestling contest

Socks off for toe wrestling contest
Competitors have gone bare footed this week for the 35th annual World Toe Wrestling Championship.

Held in Fenny Bentley, Derbyshire, male and female participants removed their socks and tights to take part in the unusual sport, which is based on the more common arm-wrestling.

Each match involves three rounds where the aim of the games is to try and force the opponents big toe to the ground, using their opposing digit.

This year's male winner was seven time champion Paul Beech, also known as Predatoe due to his preference for wearing a Predator mask throughout the contest, while the women's title went to Lisa 'Twinkletoes' Shenton.

Toe wrestling was invented in 1976, after locals at a Derbyshire pub attempted to find a sport in which the British could excel in.

This year's World Toe Wrestling Championship raised money for the When You Wish Upon A Star charity, which helps sick children to take part in life changing activities.
