Something a little fierce is being thrown on today and making its way to the blog. I didn’t know how to style these at first. I went through all my wardrobe, pairing so many different outfits before I chose this one for work. I wanted something smart casual, instead of dressing it too casually or formal.
Size: 2 / Small
Materials: 80% Polyamide, 10% Elastane, 10% Prolen
Website: UKTights – Fiore Tigris 15 Tights
I paired my knitted cami with my faux leather skater skirt. To keep with the neutral tones, I added my stone coloured court shoes.
From The Website: Animal prints have always been popular but this year tiger prints are especially desired, and Tigris is among the most captivating. Fiore Tigris is a dusky and sandy nude colour with pure white stripes running through it. It is new and different than the orange and black that most are accustomed to, but it stays versatile as it does not go with something wacky or too different in order to stand out. This is the perfect balance of striking and subtle.

Getting Them On: I gotta say I am excited to try these out! I did my scrunch and roll, taking care going over my anklets before I rolled them up and set in place. They were super easy to roll on, and I didn’t have to tug at them either.
On The Legs: well this print is something else! I love how feminine they are, staying chic and not tatty at all. Sometimes prints like these can look really rough and too dress-up, but these are such a great pair to wear with any outfit you like. I really like them!
The fit of these are amazing; I thought I might need a medium, but the small was perfect. These felt great on the legs; no gapping, no shimmying down and certainly no uneven leg coverage! It all sat where it was supposed to – happy Soni!
The quality of these are once again great! They didn’t snag on my watch today so I was impressed with myself for that as I was constantly bashing into things today. Damage free, and ready to be worn again!
The feel of them are nice; the print is sewn onto the tights, so you can feel it slightly when running your hands over it. The base have a smooth finish to them, which helps sensitive legs.
I will say I felt the nude base was a little too light for my legs; I would have preferred if they have a natural tan or a deeper tan to make it blend with the skin tone well, so it looked like the animal print was actually on my legs. It’s no biggie, but more my personal preference.
The Toes & Ankle: okay so this is where it gets a little weird. Nope, these don’t have reinforced toes at all – it’s sandal toe. I can’t say that I actually like this; it looks so odd, and it limits the footwear I can pair with them. I would prefer the print over the toes, so if I was to wear open toe shoes or peep toe, the design continues right though.
These gave my toes plenty of wiggle room, and no pressure was added during my wear either.
Around the feet and ankles, these had a lovely smooth finish, with no wrinkling.
The Waistband & Gusset: so I have to say I like this waistband. I have a lovely nude band, which sits on the waist and it had reinforcement underneath that isn’t too visible.
The band has plenty of stretch, that doesn’t lose elasticity during the day. These stayed put without shimmying down either, which is always a bonus when wearing a mini skirt.
These don’t have a cotton gusset to them, so I would advise underwear be worn.
I really like this pair; I love the design, I love the fit and I over the overall quality. The toes still make me look at it funny, but I would still recommend them!
