I am back in What Katie Did Stockings after a little while, and I have got a lovely green pair to try out today! I have done a teal before (which is slightly similar that I loved), so I was super excited to do the green this time.

Keeping with the Autumnal theme (of some sort) I paired my jumper with my statement scuba skirt and added yellow court shoes to give it that pop of colour. I quite liked the look of it to be honest!

From The Website: Green seams? Yes really! If you wear a lot of colourful you will be amazed at how often you turn to your green seamed stockings. The big question is, are green seamed nylons authentic to the 1950s. I’m afraid the answer is probably no, but back in the 1950s we’d be stuck to owning 3 or 4 dresses and just a couple of pairs of shoes. We’re moving with the times and now we have access to more clothing why not have the stockings to match? Our Glamour Seams feature a generous wide welt which is not only authentic to the 1950s, but more flattering and comfortable on curvier legs.

Getting Them On: I took my time to make sure that I got the backseam as straight as possible whilst rolling these up my legs. I took care going over my anklets, and then set them in place once I was happy.
On The Legs: I have to say I quite like this green colour. It isn’t as emerald as I would have liked, but it’s a lovely summery colour. You have a great block sole, with a matching welt and backseam.
The quality of these are alright – basically they aren’t like normal RHT stockings that have no stretch to them, but they are a great alternative if you didn’t want to fork out for a pair. I didn’t damage these as easily as I thought I would have done considering I was rushing about today.
The fit was pretty good. These are a duo size, which means there is a nice amount of stretch in these so you can sit them a little higher up the legs if you wish. I did with mine, as I find it more comfortable like this. There is also enough stretch to them, so there is minimal gapping around the ankles and knees.
The feel of them are lovely and soft. They don’t irritate the legs at all, which is always a bonus. I had no issues being in these all day long.
One thing I missed with this pair is using flash to show you the shimmery shine they have. It is pretty subtle in natural lighting, but with flash or a harsher light, they really do shine.
The Toes & Ankle: I like that the material around the toes are soft, and that I have plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe. I didn’t feel any pressure on the toes either, which is always a good sign.
Around the feet and ankles, I had no wrinkling or any issues. It was a lovely smooth finish.
The Bands: now these welts are lovely. They are soft, they are smooth and they stretch out nicely on the thighs. I didn’t have any issues with skin flopping over the welts here, and the clasps hooked on well too. These sat higher up the thighs, and stayed put all day long with no worries.
A pretty great pair I have to say. The quality is good, the fit is great and these looked amazing with the outfit I paired them with. I really liked them, and would totally recommend them too!
