So platinum will be an interesting shade for sure! I don’t know whether it’s silver, grey, white or a pearly shade – but I am excited to find out once I pair it up with an outfit.

Now this is a combo I wasn’t sure would work, but it did so well. I paired up my playsuit with these pearly grey tights and added my matte blue court shoes to bring the look together. You could also opt for blue sandals if you want a more party-ish look.

From The Website: Wolford Satin Touch 20 denier tights have a smooth, silky feel and a gorgeous shimmer finish combined with a deep, soft waistband for extra comfort and a smoother, sleeker wear under clothing. These transparent tights with their soft shine add a touch of glamour to everyday occasions; the perfect way to make everyday special. With a soft comfortable waistband, a barely visible reinforced toe, cotton gusset and reinforced panty part for optimum comfort in XXL, these are well worth the investment! Gloss tights are also bang on trend this season. 88% Polyamide, 12% Elastane
Getting Them On: I did my scrunch and roll from the toes to the ankle, taking care going over my anklets. I rolled them up from thereon and set them in place.
On The Legs: now this is a nice colour. It did take me a while to like it at first, as I felt it was too silvery for a daytime look, but I actually loved it as soon as I stepped out. It is a mix of siler/white/grey depending on how the lights hits it, and I suppose that makes it super fun to try and work out.
The quality never disappoints me – I had no issues with this pair, and I was surprised too considering I had a short playsuit on with my legs totally exposed to damage. I did make sure I got no snags or rips in this pair!
The fit of them were perfect. I had plenty of stretch on the legs to achieve even coverage and there was no gapping to be found either. I did go up one size to Small, which is perfect to give me a deeper shade rather than having them fully stretched out to the max.
The feel of them are so silky soft, and I have no complaints. No issues with irritation on the skin, and no static with the playsuit gliding right across either.
I also did do some images with and without flash, so you can see natural lighting vs flash.
The Toes & Ankle: I have a great reinforced toe section on these, but with weird stitching. At the end of my toes on the left foot, it stands out a bit more and then cuts off. I don’t know if that was something that was intentional, but it did look odd.
I had plenty of wiggle room in these and there was no pressure added either during my wear. Around the feet and ankles, it was a smooth fitted finish with no wrinkling.
The Waistband & Gusset: this is a smooth waistband as you can see below; and I mean that in every term. The way it hugs my waist, the way it looks and how lovely it shapes to me as well. These did not roll down at all during my wear today, which I was super pleased about. They also have plenty of stretch to it, so it didn’t squeeze my waist too tight.
These come with a cotton gusset, which sits flush against the skin too.
A great pair let me tell you! I love this colour, especially paired with darker colours. The fit, the feel, the shine and the waistband were all beautiful!
