Let’s get creative with colour; I wore a printed t-shirt tucked into my multi-coloured sequin skirt which I paired with my light mustard booties. I thought it was a great contrast of colours and looked super chic!

The Packaging: so their packaging normally tends to be quite basic I have to say. They show the model wearing the hosiery on the front, with the brand name, model and the window so you can peek at the colour. The back only goes into very little detail about the pair inside, along with the sizing guide and hosiery care.
When you get in, you will find these wrapped around card and folded so you get the foot and leg shaping to them. This will make it easier to get them on the legs. One thing I spotted is that the stocking welts are slimmer than usual, which I think is real nice, but I will go into that a little further down.
Getting Them On: I too my time rolling these up as they’re 10 denier, they are finer which means they can catch and snag quicker if you’re not careful. I got these on fine (and no hosiery gloves either) over anklets and up the legs.
On The Legs: can I just say how gorgeous that colour and shine is!? They look like an expensive pair of hosiery from far you know!
Let me start with the colour, as I absolutely love it. It has this gorgeous natural tan colour to them, which just enhances the legs and giving them a lovely smooth finishing look. the shine just helps to make those pins look fab in sunny weather!
The quality of these I cannot complain; they have been so good to me. No rips or snags at all during the day, and even so you wouldn’t be able to spot it easily as it would just blend in (unless it was a rip then we have problems!)
The fit of these are perfect for my size and leg length, I would say you’re cutting it fine if you’re normally a medium – you can sit them mid to low thigh if that’s the case. These do have some stretch but not a lot around the legs. I managed to pull them up as high as I could with a little tug.
The feel of them are so nice; they have that oily silky feel to them which I love. You normally get those on most of the CdR collection, and I am surprised that Gipsy have them!
They are a great pair for summer if you’re looking for something affordable and real good quality.
The Toes & Ankle: thank goodness the toes are sandal toe so you can wear these with open toe shoes or peep toes or fully open sandals… I would have if I was wearing a dress but as I was out and about, I decided to do boots instead.
It’s a shame they aren’t reinforced; being 10 denier means you do have to take extra care and having them reinforced would be one less worry hey!
Around the toes, there is plenty of wiggle room and no pressure is added onto the toes. The feet can also breathe in these as they aren’t tight around this area.
On the ankles, it’s a smooth fitted finish.
The Bands: so these bands are something special! Firstly they work with metal clasps so well that you don’t have to worry about the creating holes once you’re done!
Secondly the thickness of them are perfect; they sit so well under my mini skirt and I cannot thank them enough for doing so. Normally the welts are slightly thicker, but not with Gipsy!
Thirdly that lace is just stunning; these would be perfect for day and night wear; day where you’re covering them and night to show them off a tad (in a classy way of course)
I have to admit, these sat so well on me throughout the day without an issues at all. I managed to stretch them right to the top without wrecking the hosiery and that for me screams how good they can be!
