Wolford Josey Tights

Bringing the animal back out of the wild for this gorgeous Friday! We finally have the sun shining down again, and I am getting those shorts out to go and play! I haven’t done a wild print in some time, so I am pretty excited out this outfit and these tights to review.

This pair was gifted from my Amazon Wishlist, and all details are below.

The Review

From The Website: Leopard print is fun, flirty and stylish – a print that has become as classic as polka dot or stripes! These leopard patterned tights by Wolford have a beautifully smooth, matte finish that feels lovely on the skin. Match with this seasons hottest miniskirt for a fun, fashion forward look. 58% Polyester, 36% Polyamide, 6% Elastane

Leo-design, sheer opaque; these tights with animal-inspired print are ideal for trendsetters and those who love to add a little flair to their look. Opaque spots adorn sheer material for an eye-catching effect. The knitted-in waistband guarantees a perfect fit.

The Packaging

Getting Them On: I did my scrunch and roll as usual this morning, taking my time going over the anklets before setting them in place. What I do like about this pair is that it is quite elasticated and I had enough material, so I didn’t need to tug as much to get the on.

On The Legs: this print is just WOW! I love a good animal print, and these truly did pop. I prefer them on a nude base than black, because they stand out so much more. A black base would only tone it down, and we are not about to tone it down as it gets darker and dreary! I like the fact you get this print right from the toe seam all the way to the band!

The quality of this pair – amazing. I literally have no complaints as they have been great all day. I experienced no issues in them for the whole day, so all smiles here!

The fit was spot on, and was true to size too. Sometimes I can find the XS pairs be a little too snug, but these were perfect for me. If you want more of a compressed print, I would advise going a size up, otherwise you get something like the below on your legs.

The feel of these are really nice, and if you like that the print is stitched on top so you can feel the print – this is the pair for you. I quite like that, however one thing I always forget is that the print does leave marks on your legs once you take them off. I found most of my legs have this animal print stamped on, which only took a few minutes to fade away. I really liked wearing them overall, as they were soft on the legs and really lovely to be in.

The Toes & Ankle: these unfortunately do not have reinforced toes to them, however they do have a print which allows you to style with any footwear you like. I did have plenty of wiggle room for my toes to breathe, and no pressure was added during my wear either.

Around the feet and ankles, these have a lovely smooth finish with no wrinkling.

The Waistband & Gusset: as you can see below, these come with a slim waistband, that holds up super well. I had enough elasticity in them so they hug instead of squeeze around my belly.

I also like that the print comes all the way to the band, so it allows you to wear the short shorts or skirts with ease. Plus it just looks good!

These also sit flush against the skin, so you won’t feel it shimmy down at any stage.

My Thoughts?

What a pair! I really love how loud and bold these are, and something that works so well in winter too! I would happily recommend this pair for sure!
