Let me tell you I have had my eye on this pair for quite some time now, and when I saw they went into sale, I HAD to get my hands on a pair. These are pretty hard to get hold of now, so I am glad I managed to buy it!
I do miss my statement tights, especially dressing them up for a night out, so that is what my blog is all about today!
Materials: 91% Polyamide, % Elastane
Price: £37.00 / Sale £19.95
I am going super glam today with this gorgeous pair; I paired my mini dress with these statement tights and added some crazy high sandals to finish off the look. I kept it super minimal with jewellery.
From The Website: Gorgeous tights which have an opaque/sheer knitted technique featuring a beautiful stay up effect. The design up to the upper thigh is a delightful floral/leaf design, which give them a very modern look. The panty section is sheer up to the pleasantly soft waistband.

On The Legs: I am totally obsessing over how stunning this design is! I love how eye-catching and statement-y these are! I remember when I first saw them, I fell in love with the intricacy and how great they look on the legs. This is one that you need something minimal to set them off; which is why I wanted my look to be super subtle today.
The quality is always spot on; I loved the stretch they had to them and it was perfect for my leg size. I always go between XS and Small depending on the design and how much stretch I am after to achieve a certain look. These don’t snag or rip easily either, which always impresses me. I would say as long as you take care when you’re in them, they will certainly take care of you.
The fit is true to size, however if you do wish to go one size up, there would be no harm in doing so. It wouldn’t make much difference apart from the design not being stretched out. I found these hugged the legs really well, and there was hardly any gapping.
The feel of them are super soft, and so lovely on the legs. They don’t irritate at all, and I could easily spend all day and night in them without worrying. When you stroke your hands over them, you will feel the design slightly raised up.
The Toes & Ankle: are not reinforced, so they will be perfect to wear with sandals like I have done. I do wish they had invisible reinforced toes, as I have to make sure my nails aren’t too long to be able to wear these. I had plenty of wiggle room for my toes to move and breathe in this pair, and they did not feel cramped at all at any stage.
Around the feet and ankles, it was a smooth fitted finish as you can see below. I do love how the detail starts right from the toe seams!
The Waistband & Gusset: I didn’t show the waistband here, however I will say that these are a great band as always. They are a great thick-ish band and they stay up around the waist without moving. I didn’t feel mine dig in at any point, and they moved with me during the shoot.
One thing I do love about a Wolford band is they don’t roll over itself and they don’t roll down!
The gusset is a small centred patch, which is made of cotton, so you have the option to go commando if you wish.
I really do like this design, and I love the quality as per usual. It’s a great statement pair that you can dress up or down! I would happily recommend these if you are lucky enough to get your hands on some!
