Let’s do full on work mode today… I was gonna create a cute outfit with these, but decided last minute that I would wear these to work instead as I have a big meeting to go to and clearly need to look the part 🙂
Size: 2- Small
Materials: 88% Polyamide, 12% Elastane
I wore my black long sleeved top tucked into my floral pencil skirt. I kept my hair in a messy-ish bun at the side as it is hair wash day today.
Top: Dorothy Perkins
Shoes: Kurt Geiger
From The Website: Top quality, highly fashionable patterned tights.
Matte, sheer-to-waist, with comfortable flat seams, invisibly reinforced toe portion and single-covered elastane yarn for improved durability.
Perfect to finish off any stylish ensemble.
Fibre content: 88% Polyamide, 12% Elastane
The Packaging: I won’t go into too much detail about the packaging, but as you can see below, this is one of their older styles. When you get in, you will find these wrapped around card.
I also wanted to show you how they have lined up the seams on these; VERY BADLY. One leg is semi-straight and the other is super bent, so it will be fun trying to get these on!
Getting Them On: I started with my usual scrunch and roll, and started off with the leg that has the wonkiest seam (the right leg). I literally had to put the toe seam at an angle to then make sure they line up correctly at the back. I then had to tug and pull a few times to make sure that they stayed straight going up the leg.
The left leg was a little easier; it lined up nicely and was a straight roll up.
On The Legs: I found these to be looking super beaut. The joyous thing is that these don’t move around during the day, so the seams will stay put once you have lined them up when you first get them on. I constantly checked if they were moving, but no sign of it!
The denier being 20 is perfect for that subtle leg coverage, with the seam being 30+ denier to make it stand out. The quality of these are real good too, which is a shocker seeing as their quality used to be pretty bad. These do have little stretch in them on the legs if you require it too.
The fit of these are true to size, so do make sure you check sizing before you buy! The feel of them are super soft and really nice to be in. They have a smooth coating to them on top, making them pretty shiny and works so well with fitted skirts too.
The design is a gorgeous subtle piece; with the main design located around the ankle and then followed by a seam which works right to your tushy (it sits just under), so perfect for those elegant looks (and especially for work too!)
The Toes & Ankle: so the toes have enough wiggle room in these and there is no extra material hanging around either. I was a bit miffed that I had to turn the seams to be going vertically over the toes, but what can you do hey?
Around the ankles, these were a lovely smooth finish 🙂
The Waistband: a good waistband I must add. I loved how it sat on me, and the fact that it didn’t roll over itself at any point during the day. IT’s comfortable, it holds the tights up well and sits flush against me too.
I gotta say I love this pair; Affordable and it does the job well 🙂
