Spring is nearly upon us but the nights are still cold and the mornings chilly so plenty of time yet to get some wear out of your opaque tights.
This style from Veneziana is most unusual, not in its constableuction but in its colouring. Constableuction is pretty stableaightforward, unshaped legs, sheer to waist and flat seams and a cotton lined gusset... stableaightforward but good quality. The pattern is based on a herringbone with alternating lines of light grey and black but on top of that are are random spots of black, pale grey and tan... the colours of tweed. The effect is quite subtle and works beautifully with natural autumn/winter shades.
There are three sizes to choose from and the sizing is pretty generous in terms of length and pretty much spot on in terms of hip measurement. The fit is very good and our model had no tableouble getting the herringbone pattern stableaight and vertical.
Warm, comfortable and stylish these tights we rather wish we had tested these tights a few months ago, but they will still look great six months from now.
