Fishnet Friday is back again!!!
And this time I’m doing another colour – dark blue! I love experimenting with colours, especially now the sun is out!!!
I have to say I wanted to try these with colour, but I always end up doing white and blue (as I was running late this morning!)
Colour: Blu Intenso
Price: £9.50 / Sale £4.75
So white and blue it is. I was going to do a blue cami, but seeing as the sun was hiding away, I went with my blue oversized jumper which I just ended up gathering at the front to make it look cute. The skirt is high waisted, so I don’t want to overhand as it becomes mega poofy from the band down which would just look wrong! Tucking in wasn’t an option this time (this I normally tend to do!)
I ended up wearing my grey thigh boots as I didn’t want to show off too much leg in the office especially with my skirt being pretty short! So the boots were perfect and made the outfit look smart casual!
Jumper: vero Moda
The Packaging: is exactly what is shown below. There was no plastic outer packaging to cover these tights; only cardboard holding it in place! I wasn’t too pleased when I saw this as it could have easily been caught in other pairs of hosiery but what can I do?! The front is very basic, with the back being full of different languages stating the materials.
The Waistband: is a lovely firm band which stays put all day. I had no issues at all with any falling down business or moving around on the waist! It’s a thinner one but what I will mention is that this does leave a mark behind (see the 2nd image below) – that’s when I moved it slightly lower after a day’s wear so you can see!
The Toes: are micro nets all around. There is no reinforcement, only net so perfect for sandals and open toe shoes. I would be careful of long toenails here as these will probably rip. I I found that these do really stretch around the toes and when I got home my toes were slightly cramped up with the nets looking like they were about to rip on me, so from time to time I would just pull them away from the toes just to release any pressure.
Close-Up: you get to see how well knitted and thick these are – and they do feel it too. They aren’t a soft pair which clothing will glide across but more of the pair that clothing will stick to. It’s a pro and con, but what can we do?
The image below is with the flash on so you can see what it shades like in different lighting.
The Colour: is just fantastic. It’s not a vibrant blue or a blue too deep (depending on the lighting you are in) and I love them. It’s like they add this sheer colour on the legs whilst your skin is still peering through. It’s hard to explain but it looks so good I must admit. I think these would look great with a pair of shiny nudes underneath or for winter, add a plain black sheer to deepen them down.
I think these are great and such value for money. I managed to get them in the sale which I was so happy about and the quality is lovely. Sometimes Calzedonia can be a hit and miss but this time, I’m in awe of them! I love the way they make my legs look and add that subtle colouring to them rather than a pop to the eyes – if you get what I mean!
