Today is one of those days where I am wishing summer is coming, purely because I wanna be wearing pastels and light colours without having to dull it down to make it appropriate for winter.
Now these beauties I picked up in the sale, seeing as I have done this brand before and though they were pretty good! And the best part is that these are still available from TKMAXX!
I haven’t done barely black in so long, and now it’s starting to slowly get lighter, so can my deniers!
Materials: 88% Polyamide, 12% Elastane
I decided to go all floral and spring-like with my pink sheer top (with same coloured cami) tucked into my floral embroidered velvet skirt. I added my pink studded court shoes to finish off the look 🙂

From The Website: Bolster your basics with these barely black tights. In ‘barely black’ the tights are 20 denier and feature a reinforced toe.
88% Polyamide, 12% Elastane
The Packaging:the packaging for Jaeger is very dark, with the model taking over. It shows the brand, model, size and colour on the front. The back goes into slight detail about the sizing guide.
When you get inside, you will find these flat packed and wrapped neatly around plain card.
On The Legs: I gotta say these are so nice considering these are barely black! I have done some barely black reviews before, but not ones where they have a gorgeous shine to them. Normally they tend to be a granny-ish colour (especially if they are a matte finish), but these are a lovely grey-ish black and look amazing!
The denier on these are 20 (usually barely black are around 10) and the quality is great, until you get a snag or 3! I managed to catch these to create little snags on the thighs. Luckily they weren’t major and didn’t form a ladder. These also have a good amount of stretch in them too, so you don’t need to worrying about these feeling too tight.
The fit is true to size, so if you are unsure, then maybe go one size up. I know these won’t really crinkle at the ankles as these are elasticated well throughout. The feel of them are so silky smooth I don’t wanna take them off. I love how you could easily slip your legs off one another with that shiny coating.
The Toes & Ankle:around the toes are reinforced (YESSSSS!) so you don’t need to panic about long or sharp nails too much. I found I had plenty of wiggle room in these, and there was no pressure added around the toes and feet either.
Around the ankle, these were a lovely smooth finish.
The Waistband: now these have a sheer boxer brief to them which sits top thigh, so anything short just be mindful that this doesn’t peer at the bottom of it! The band itself is great; it sits flush against the waist all day without any issues of rolling or falling down. I found the elastic in these to be decent; where they don’t lose stretch so quickly.
I gotta say I am loving these – that’s all!
