Now this is my bargain pair from Calzedonia that I am glad I got my hands on. These went down in the sale to £3.00 and I had to get them! Even though I have so many similar to this, I just love the way they look on the legs and just completely stand out against bold colours.
So let me get cracking on the mini review of these 🙂
Colour: Black – 3923
Materials: 89% polyamide, 11% elastane
Website: Calzedonia – Floral Patterned Tights
So wanting to add some serious colour, I teamed my orange skater skirt with my ribbed bodycon top and added my suede mules to the mix. I thought I would fancy it up with a simple beaded choker and studs for work 🙂
Skirt: River Island
Mules: River Island
From The Website: Women’s 40-denier tulle tights with a decorative floral strip
The Packaging: so as these were ordered online, they came plastic wrapped for protection – and I am so glad they did this as it preserves the tights in transit and stops it getting snagged by others!
As you can see there is no snags at all thank goodness where they are exposed.
The front and back don’t go into much detail as you can see. When you start undoing the outer package, you will find a lovely piece of card right down the foot on one leg. I was annoyed but hey what can I do?
Once you get that ‘lovely’ piece of card out, you will find these flat folded.
Getting Them On: now these you need to take extra care, so out come the gloves to make sure that I don’t end up catching these somehow as these are pretty much netted from toe to waistband.
They were fine to get on once I got past the anklets, and up the legs 🙂
On The Legs: well I am never disappointed with Calzedonia and their net tights. I love how they look! They are so bold yet feminine and they really do make all the difference to an outfit when they are on.
The fit of these are true to size, and the feel of them are just amazing. They are slightly rough but with a smooth finish if that makes sense? They are the type that can easily catch so just be careful when you’re in them!
I just love how they are a nice smooth finish on the legs, and from far they don’t look netted at all!
The Toes & Ankle: as you can see, these aren’t reinforced, they have plenty of wiggle room and no extra material. These also don’t add any pressure onto the toes during the day!
Around the ankles, these are a gorgeous smooth finish!
The Waistband: and like you see below, the waistband is a slim one! These sit around belly button level on me and hold up so well. They have plenty of stretch in them so these won’t be going loose anytime soon either. And then waist down is pure sheer delight …
If you can’t get your hands on this pair, then there are so many out there that are near enough identical, so I would recommend getting yourself a pair! I love mine and have always gone for this model of Calzedonia and it never fails me!
