And once again we revisit high waisted tights – I thought let’s give Donna Karan a go as I really like her hosiery. Plus I got these in the sale!
Now I do apologise as where I purchased them from, they only sell the one piece of each, so I can’t pop down the exact details!
Let’s go bright and beautiful today with a massive splash of orange. I wore my bodysuit paired with my orange cardigan, and my high waisted skirt on top. I added my casual wedges today to give it a more dress down feel rather than wearing heels.
Bodysuit: New Look
The Packaging: so if you haven’t come across Donna Karan before, her packaging looks pretty elite. I love the darkness to it, giving it that lux feel. The front shows the model and the back states generic information about Donna Karan.
When you get in, you will find a piece of promo card with the tights wrapped around it. These came flat folded, so pretty easy to get on. The best thing about these is that it has the label inside the hosiery so you know back from front.
Getting Them On: I gotta say I loved getting these on this morning; they are to die for with that matted shine! They were so easy to roll on, especially over anklets and up the legs. As these sit right under the bust, I didn’t have any hassle adjusting and setting these to my liking.
On The Legs: that denier is looking so good! I love how blacked out they look, and when you see the close-up they seem really sheer-like. It all depends on the lighting inside and outside, which either makes them seem sheer or darker on the legs.
The quality is just superb; they fit really well, they felt so good and they didn’t snag at all. This is one reason why I love her brand!
Oh yeah and these are actually supposed to be a matte finish by the way, the flash decided to give it a bit of shine 🙂
The Toes & Ankle: so as you can see below, they have plenty of wiggle room, no extra material at the sides of the feet and they look great! These aren’t reinforced as far as I am aware, so do take care with long or sharp nails!
Around the ankles, these are a lovely smooth flush finish against the skin – no complaints here!
The Waistband: okay so the full picture of these is on my Instagram page, where you get to see how high they actually sit on me. I just mainly wanted to show you what they are like under clothing and the other little hidden parts.
So these have a boxer brief to them, around 80-100 denier and plenty of elasticity in them too.
We then work up to the top of the band, where you can see a thin silicone strip – this helps to keep the tights up. And yes let me mention if you do perspire, these still do stay up and intact regardless so you have no worries there. The only issue is when you have to go to the toilet – so these are better for occasions or nights out maybe!
I couldn’t be prouder of myself the fact that I got these for dirt cheap and they are one of the best pairs of her brand yet! I love the way they look, feel and sit on me. They are decent quality and I can see these lasting after a good few washes too!
