Roll on Day 3 in my Emilio Cavallinis! I left a little gap between the reviews (sorry about that) as I was off to Berlin and couldn’t be posting as much as I wanted to!
Today we have a weird and wonderful statement pair as part of their new collection for Autumn / Winter 2017! I seriously love statement legs in winter; it’s just one of those things can make a boring (yet cosy) outfit look amazing with just one swap in your hosiery!
Materials: 90% polyamide, 10% elastane
Website: Emilio Cavallini – Leaflike Tights
I love this look I created; very safari-like! I threw on my oversized shirt, along with a brown waist belt, brown knee-high boots and spiral earrings.
I kept my hair up as it was a greaseball day, but all in all, I think it looked pretty awesome!
Belt: Jane Norman
Boots: Just Fab
Tights: Emilio Cavallini
From The Website: Play with contrasts with these unique leaflike tights. The leaves pattern will create an ultra-stylish effect on your legs, thanks to the sheer and opaque contrasts. Wear them with high heels and make even the simplest of outfits stand out!
Made in Italy
The Packaging: the front shows the model wearing the hosiery (no model name or anything). The back gives you a little info about the hosiery along with a little window so you can see the hosiery along with the denier as well! What I like about it is that it’s simple and straight to the point, which is perfect for those who aren’t into hosiery and just getting into it.
These came neatly wrapped, but the downer is that these had cardboard inside (!!!!!) and pretty easy to get into. As these have no labels or tags to state front or back, you can get them on either day. What I tend to do is look where the band is stitched together and I normally put that at the back.
One thing I did notice is how long these are! They were like higher than my waist, so I hope to God that these fit me ok!
On The Legs: oh they sit so well and hug so great too! No little bits where it crinkles or anything! I love the print against what I’m wearing as it’s becomes more casual yet a statement piece that you want it to be! I would have liked these to be one size smaller as you would get he stretch to it and see the sheer denier a little more (not knocking how it actually looks on, but it’s nice to see what it would be like in my true size).
The Toes: so the toes are reinforced YAAAYYYY!!! and not only that the design starts right from the seam! It is a lot darker compared to the rest of the foot, but I suppose it’s not a bad thing if you’re in boots!
The Band: very comfortable and so much better than the 1st pair I did (the oriental lace ones!) – these actually fit me quite nicely and they’re ever so snug too! They sit around the belly button area and hardly roll down!
The Denier & Design: is just amazeballs! Like these are supposed to be leaves, but everyone thought it was leopard print! The design works right from the toes to under the bum (this is where it cuts off and becomes a thicker denier).
The denier is fab as it makes the design stand out so nicely. The best part is that these aren’t too thin where you can see hairs popping through. It has decent leg coverage so it’s not exposing too much; perfect for A/W!
I really like these! I love the quirky design which is supposed to be leaves but looks more like a leopard print!
The quality is great; no snags or anything and they have great leg coverage too, even for the base being sheer.
