Hello Falke! Now this pair I am so ready to try out! I love this colour, I love this design and I cannot wait to pair up with an outfit and see what they’re like on.
This pair was gifted by my amazing friend through my Amazon Wishlist.

Not an outfit I would usually do, but felt like trying something different today. I went with my lace cami top, paired with my lace shorts and added simple black court shoes to bring the look together.

Getting Them On: these were a breeze (get it?!) to get on this morning. I love that I had enough material so I didn’t have to tug at them to get them on. They were a slow gentle roll up the legs.
I also had no issues with my anklets – I just lifted them above and continued rolling up the legs.
On The Legs: oh this colour is to die for right?! I love how rich and regal they look, especially against the white. And I have to say it works so well with the floating cloud design too – it really makes it stand out. What I also love about them is around the clouds, there is an outline all around them to enhances the shaping. There is so much going on, and I absolutely love it!
The quality of these – you cannot fault. This is one of the reasons why I love Falke; their quality is great! These have stayed pristine all day long, without a snag or rip.
The fit is true to size, and it was perfect for me. I would advise going a size up if you are in-between sizes, as they have plenty of stretch to them so you can achieve even leg coverage. What I do love about this pair is that I have even coverage from toe to waist; I half expected it to become lighter and stretched out around the thighs, but I was pleasantly surprised that it is even throughout!
The feel of these are so soft, they are a dream to wear. I have been so comfortable in these all day. These don’t irritate the skin either, which is a blessing! I really couldn’t ask for a better pair to be honest!
The Toes & Ankle: now the only sad thing is that these don’t come with reinforced toes. So I had to cut those nails back and smooth them out before I slipped these on this morning – I didn’t want to damage them on the 1st wear!
I had plenty of wiggle room, and no pressure was added around my toes. I also had a smooth, fitted finish with no wrinkling too!
The Waistband & Gusset: as you can see below, you have this great pattern working right to the waistband. I found the waistband to be decent; it had plenty of stretch so it sat on my waistline well all day.
These didn’t lose elasticity either during my wear, which is always great news. I also like how they stayed flush against the skin as shown below; no wrinkling, no rolling and no shimmying down my legs.
Adding this pair to my favourites collection! I love how different they are; and that colour is to die for! I love everything about these, and would highly recommend if you are into patterned pairs.
