Aristoc is making a comeback onto the blog today, with one of my new gifted dresses! I wanted to create a super cute summer look. I see these types of dresses paired with trainers/pumps, and I tried so hard not to do the same and add a pair of heels instead.
Materials: 75% Polyamide, 24% Elastane, 1% Cotton
Feeling super ditsy in this dress! I paired it up with simple nude sandals to keep the eyes on the dress and tights!

15d High Leg Toner Tights
Getting Them On: I have to say this was a long pair of tights – as I was holding them up against my legs, these went way past my stomach! So I was intrigued to see how they fit on me – they were fine! I did my scrunch and roll, taking care going over my anklets. I didn’t have to tug them up at all as I had plenty of material to work with. set these in place, and went about my day.
On The Legs: I absolutely love this shade, as it blends so well with my skin tone making it look pretty invisible. I love that these have a gorgeous lustre shine to them when the flash is on. I did test this out in the summer sun, and it looked exactly the same!
The quality of this pair is really nice, and one of the reasons I like the Aristoc brand. They don’t snag as easily and they are a pair I can wear all day without any issues.
The fit of these are perfect; as they are a duo size, there is a nice amount of material given. These don’t have a lot of stretch to them, but I did find that the leg length was quite long when I unfolded them, only to realise that these will fit great on the legs as the stretch lacks. Not a negative point, but one that I need to let you know about if you choose to purchase.
The feel if them are quite grainy due to the lustre shine they give, but it’s not something that irritates the skin or makes you feel itchy. Apart from that, they have a lovely soft finish underneath that sits on the skin.
The Toes & Ankle: these don’t come with reinforced toes unfortunately, which is a shame as I have to be careful with my nails. I made sure they were smoothed down before slipping these on to prevent any rips from occurring.
I had plenty of wiggle room in these, and no pressure was added around the toes during my wear. I suppose it helped with it being open toe sandals.
Around the feet and ankles, these had a smooth finish with no wrinkling.
The Waistband & Gusset: so this is the toner part; that sits higher up the legs and on the stomach. I like the lattice design at the sides of the waistband. which I believe contributes to the toning. They also have their brand name stitched into the waistband, which I thought was a nice touch.
Regarding the toner element, I do feel this has light compression to them, which is perfect for summer weather. I didn’t feel too hot wearing them either. This whole brief section covers the front and back of the body.
I love this pair, and it’s perfect to wear in summer heat too. The lustre shine was a favourite of mine, especially with this dress. The quality was great, the fit was perfect and overall I loved this pair. I would happily recommend these for sure!
