Seriously Calzedonia are upping their game with their designs and styles; I still have at least 5 more pairs of theirs I need to get through and I am dying to get them reviewed for you all. This is one brand that never lets me down; it’s affordable, they have some amazing bold and subtle styles, and overall their quality is amazing.

Going a little bolder to work, I wore my wrap over jumper (with a bodyuit underneath) tucked into my leather skirt. I added simple suede court shoes rather than stiletto heels to keep it work appropriate.
I kept my hair up this time and added small studs 🙂
Bodysuit: New Look
Wrap Jumper: AX Paris

The Packaging: not much really to say about their packaging. If you go into their store, you normally see them like this, where you have to look at the back to see what design it is. It’s pretty basic, but then again it gets better when you get inside!
These come flat folded and wrapped around card. Thank goodness it’s around the card with no card insert as this is a mesh/net base so I can only imagine the snags appearing trying to take the card out!
Getting Them On: I wore my satin hosiery gloves to get these on, and rolled these up carefully from the feet to the ankles (just making sure my anklets don’t end up catching on them). Once I got past that point, they were fine to roll up as normal to the waist.
On The Legs: what a bold statement they make! I absolutely love the way they look on the legs; it’s a different take on fishnets I must say.
The denier is 40 which is enough to give a lovely coverage on the legs, but still have that sheerness peering through. The heavier denier on the diamond design really stands out against this!
The quality of these are amazeballs; they don’t snag easily as you might think. They fit the legs really well and hug them throughout the day without any issues.
The feel of them aren’t rough at all; it’s a smooth grainy feel if you get my flow? It’s one that doesn’t irritate your legs at all. The best part of these is as these are a micro net matte finish, they help to give your legs a slimmer look.
The Toes & Ankle: I had no issues here at all; there is plenty of wiggle room in these and no pressure is added throughout the day either. The fit really well around the toes and ankles.
The ankles, as you can see, don’t have any wrinkles or creases at all.
The Waistband: is a good strong one. These hold up the hosiery well with that slim waistband; it doesn’t lose elasticity during the day and they stay put no matter what. They fit so well around the waist; it’s nice and snug rather than feeling tight.
I gotta say I am so glad I have a pair to review now after seeing this flaunted all Xmas! These are a lovely pair, and if you’re into this style, there are so many ways you can dress these. I love mine and would totally recommend them!
