Roll on a good month full of blogs and reviews for you all. I wanted to treat you all to some amazing content, starting off with some metallic shine!
I am back in some serious metallic glossy tights on a dullish day! I have to admit I didn’t go all out with my outfit today, as I wanted them to be my statement piece with a simple outfit. I wanted to pair them with pumps at first, but then I opted for boots instead.
If you missed my last review on this pair, hit the link below (opens in a new tab):
Size: One Size

I tucked in my box fit t-shirt into my faux leather shorts and added some suede boots. You could easily add a jumper, or change the shorts to a skirt. I went simple today, letting my legs be the piece!
T-Shirt: Pull & Bear
Heels: New Look

Getting Them On: I did my usual scrunch and roll and up they went with ease. These are fine going over anklets too by the way. As they are pretty thick and glossy, they glided right up the legs without any issues.
On The Legs: this is some amazing gloss we have going on here. It doesn’t seem much when the flash isn’t on but they totally transform when you get the light hitting them. These would be perfect for parties and occasions coming up! At first I wasn’t too sure I was feeling them, but when I saw my legs shine – OH YEP!!! I am feeling these!
The quality of these are great; last time I managed to scuff them pretty bad but they didn’t rip or anything. This time I took care being in them, and they lasted so well. It’s super weird to think they are only 40 deniers!
The fit and feel is just right; these are one size and super stretchy, so you do feel comfortable in these throughout the day. They hug the legs so well and they don’t fall down or feel loose on the legs either. The feel of these are to die for; they are super extra silky smooth to touch! They don’t irritate the legs either.
The Toes & Ankle: these come with reinforced toes which you can slightly see; they blend in very well. This also means you can get away wearing these with open toe shoes and sandals too.
I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move and breathe.
Around the ankles and feet, they have a lovely smooth fitted finish to them.
The Waistband & Gusset: the waistband did not give me any issues this time around. They stayed up well and did not roll down itself either. These sit just a little above my belly button, but it wasn’t an issue.
The gusset is a small cotton patch, which sits flush against the skin.
I would happily recommend these if you love some glossy thick shine and don’t want thick deniers to achieve it. I loved the colour when the light hit it, and it was a great fit with such a smooth feel on the legs.
