So finally now I have had my laser sessions complete, I can get back into my nude sheers once again (seeing as I have quite a few to get through!) I saw this pair and I just had to get them. I thought they were dead funky and easy enough to pair with an outfit!

My Outfit

So I went monochrome (I need to stop doing this) – although it is getting quite cold here so I suppose it won’t hurt this time around! You can easily go symmetrical or into those mathy-prints I like to call them but I thought I would tone it down and make it work with an office outfit instead. I went with my fluffy jumper, leather-look skirt and a statement necklace to add that extra to it.

My Deets:
Necklace: Next

Jumper: H&M

Skirt: Mango

Tights: Via UKTights

The Review

So packaging – very basic. Shows the design on the front and back with a small blurb about them and a peep hole in the corner so you can see what’s inside. They are neatly wrapped so no problems there.

When you get them out, you may notice that the nylons look longer than your legs (I’m targeting shorties here!) but don’t worry!! They aren’t that bad when they are on! I was a little worried that they were going to be too long for me, but I found that wasn’t the case when I got them on.

At first I thought I would not need to pull them up slightly but I did have to readjust a few times to make sure that I had it even on the legs. I hate it when one bit of my leg has more nylon covering it than the rest.

These are also fine over anklets too – although be careful with those that might catch the tights! You don’t want to snag these within the first few minutes of getting them on!

I love the band on these; they fit so lovely that you don’t even feel it on your stomach/waistline and the best part is that they stay in place all day too!

Now the design – these are something else! And I am so glad that they’re a piece I have never seen before as it makes it more exciting to blog about! I am not too keen on the denier as it does make your legs look whiter than normal so the colour doesn’t do the legs any justice (unless you’re after a colour change!) but the pattern is just popping!!!! I do have to mention that there are some that have a border standing out around it (see some of the close-ups below) which is quite annoying but then again these are cheap so I shouldn’t complain!

The print is 3D-like so you will feel it when you rub your hands over them, which I suppose helps make them stand out.

These don’t have reinforced toes I’m afraid so those long toenails may need to be trimmed and smoothed down before stepping into these!

Another little thing to mention is that it does leave marks on your legs when you take them off! See the last picture!!

The only downside to these is that they are one sized – I had no trouble with them at all, however if you are slightly bigger, then I may suggest trying to get an alternative. I think these do look amazing but you will need slimmer legs to keep that design intact as it would stretch and lose the whole look of them.

 

Overall thoughts?

I really do like these and I think they’re worth buying if you’re looking for different and versatile. I would mainly dress these casually but I always find it fun trying to make it work with a smart outfit. They’re not badly priced, and if you love nude sheers with bold prints, then these are the ones for you!!

I’m really in love with Calzedonia tights!

calzedonia-tights-indre-48

the kinds – with stars, prints, dots, or whatever else on them, I am in!
Calzedonia tights just became one of my favorite and most important accesent.
I really adore dresses and skirts even on the cold season, so the tights are just perfect to complete my look and keep me warm enough.
In this days is really cool because we have so many possibilities to be stylish and fashionable!
Lately, I literally live in Calzedonia shop and every time and I go out with shopping bags and smiling. But as you can see from the photos below I am so crazy about them I even wear it at home. But what can I say as we fashionistas say “Life is too short to wear boring clothes”.
so let me know which is your latest obsession 🙂
