Happy October! I wanted to start the month off right with a look that could totally work for Halloween! Plus I haven’t worn this dress in forever and felt like pulling it out for this pair.
Materials: 86% polyamide, 15% elastane
Monochrome again – because it’s too good not to. I paired my skater dress with simple suede heels to finish the look. You can always switch to boots for cooler weather.
From The Website: Women Summer Collection by Gabriella Harper model is fancy tights with delicate thin horizontal stripes.
The tights are made of high-quality fiber, double braided with polyamide silk.
Without a separated panty section, with a cotton gusset, sewn with a flat seam.
Harper is a model with character.
Thickness: 20 denier
Price per 1 item.
Getting Them On: these are a fun pair! I did my scrunch and roll, and tried to match up the pattern on each leg before setting in place. I mean you don’t have to, but my OCD is only gonna kick off if I don’t.
These are fine ging over anklets too, just as long as you don’t tug against them.
On The Legs: How cool are these?! One I thought would be hard to dress, but actually I love how the look with this dress! I love the twirls that wrap around the legs and end bottom thigh. The only thing I will say is that the spirals aren’t smooth; they have a ladder look to them up close which you can see in the images below. This is the only off-putting thing that I don’t like, as it would look incredible if they were perfectly smooth going round and round.
The quality if these are really nice from far, but up close I did spot some imperfections; there was a part at the top of the legs where it shades all weird and is patchy. The other thing is the spirals being laddered and staggered instead of a smooth spiral. It’s a shame that it’s these little things that make the difference between an ok pair and a great pair. I do like the fact I didn’t end up damaging these by snagging or ripping them!
The fit of these are true to size, and I had plenty of elasticity in them to achieve even leg coverage. I like that there was no gapping to be found and it was a smooth finish on the legs.
The feel of them are soft, and really smooth on the legs. You can feel the spirals are slightly raised, but not greatly so it marks the skin.
The Toes & Ankle: now I am unsure if these have reinforced toes to them, but let’s say they do. I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during my wear either.
These have a smooth, fitted finish around the feet and ankles.
The Waistband & Gusset: these come with a good sized band to them, and a t-band reinforcement on the seams too. I love that these have a nice amount of stretch that doesn’t loosen during my wear. They also hold up really well, and don’t slip or roll down on itself either.
Another great pair I got to review today for you all. I love the design, and the quality of these are decent for what you get too!
