Because I missed patterns a little, I had to slip back into them and create a casual look. I was tempted to dress these for work but I decided against it and went for a look that can work for a day of shopping, or spending it having a picnic in the park.
Size: 2 / Small
Materials: 85% Polyamide, 15% Elastane
Website: UKTights – Fiore Sharon 30 Tights
I created a simple black and white look, by pairing my cami top with my fax leather tassel skirt. I added my white pumps to finish off the casual look!
Cami Top: New Look
From The Website: Sharon is a gorgeous and inventive new take on the floral tradition with a stunning flower and vine display. It is not your usual clusters of flower patterns, but instead it is a more vertical pattern with dots, organized to make your legs appear longer, whilst still grabbing your attention. It is a head turning pattern and a stunning piece of fashion tights design.

On The Legs: I am crushing over this gorgeous pattern. I love the mix of polka dots mixed with big florals to create this unique piece. I like the fact they made this on a mesh/net base instead of the normal sheer base you get, which gives it that slightly darker shade too.
The quality of this pair is pretty great, however I did manage to snag these in a few spots. With it being a mesh-like material, this can easily happen so do expect a few to peer. I do also like how they hug the legs really well, and I an see these being pretty durable if they are cared for properly.
The fit of these are true to size, and I had great leg coverage. I ended up tugging them too high, which shows these have a lot of material to them for your legs. Next time I won’t need to tug them up when getting them on. I would advise you to check the sizing guide to ensure you pick the right size for your leg length and width.
The feel of these are soft, but not as smooth unfortunately. Due to the material used, it has a grainy feel to it, which I don’t mind but it does start to itch (especially in warm weather). Some people are ok with this, but it’s worth noting if your skin is sensitive.
The Toes & Ankle: now unfortunately there are no reinforced toes here, which is a shame. But then to compensate that, you have the floral design working right to the toe seam, making these perfect to wear with open footwear of your choice. I didn’t thins time, but these would look great with sandals for sure!
I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move and there was no issue with pressure on the toes.
I also had a lovely fitted finish around the feet and ankles.
The Waistband & Gusset: this is the best part, as I am working with the design right upto the reinforced waistband. I like the fact it has this reinforcement as I believe the material would be very delicate up here if no care is taken.
The waistband itself is great; it has plenty of stretch to it, it hugs the waist well and it doesn’t shimmy/roll down either during the day. I really liked being in this pair as it was so comfortable up top!
Apart from the fact this pair can snag a lot, I still like them. I love that design, and these can work really well in Autumn/Winter too! I would still recommend them – just make sure you take care being in them!
