And we welcome another new brand to the blog, which I do not have information for either – such a shame! This brand is only available from Amazon, as far as I am aware of.
This pair was gifted from my Amazon Wishlist to try out, so let’s get right to it and see what they’re like.
Denier: Around 40
Materials: 97% Polyamide, 3% Elastane
Now I wanted to create a smart casual look, as I haven’t worn a hoodie with a skirt for a while. I teamed up my oversized hoodie with my leather skirt and added some suede court shoes to finish off the look.
Hoodie: The Weeknd
The Packaging: well this is something new. They actually came like this through the door; no outer packaging or anything. They actually stuck the delivery details on the front, which I was super shocked with. I can’t say I am impressed with this…
Getting into the packaging, these are flat folded so there is no foot or leg shaping to them. One thing that I forgot to check was the sizing; this pair is XL – LIKE SERIOUSLY!!!!!!? So I have that double seam at the back to work with! I am not looking forward to this to be honest.
Getting Them On: well there was no point in shimmying these up the legs; they were so long I didn’t have to do anything and just pt them on like I would a pair of trousers. You will see below how much material I am working with…
On The Legs: okay so let’s start off with the pattern. I have to say I haven’t done this design for a long time; this was one of my favourites, especially for workwear. It was one that made an outfit classy and fun at the same time. A lot of women tend to go for this style if they are after a ‘patterned’ pair for work and didn’t want to do polka dots. I liked the double diamond design, especially as I worked it as a smart casual outfit.
Now the quality of these aren’t great to be honest; they could be so much better, but then again what do you expect from a cheap pair? I know it is bad to say, but these aren’t the greatest in my eyes. These snag quite easily and the material they have used I didn’t really like.
The fit of them – actually let’s not go there. They’re huge for me.
The feel of them are ok, but they did irritate my skin a little. I did find them slightly rough and they aren’t as smooth as they might look. They might not be so bad on a person who wears XL, but these don’t work for me.
The Toes & Ankle: it’s safe to say my toes did not feel cramped with the amount of room I was working with. I will say that I was surprised that it wasn’t baggy around the toes and feet; I expected them to be hanging off me.
The toes are reinforced on these, so thumbs up from me there. Around the feet and ankles, I didn’t experience much wrinkling sitting down.
The Waistband & Gusset: well this sat a lot higher than expected; they were inches above my belly button and sat just under my chest.
The band itself is super thin, and to be honest this did roll down multiple times on me. They were sitting too high up on me, and because of this, they ended up rolling down most of the day. It was too much hassle for me!
To be honest, I don’t think I would recommend these. It’s not because they didn’t fit, but the quality could have been better in my eyes.
