Wolford gifted the tights featured in this post, but all opinions are my own.
It's that time of year again: tights season! These tights Wolford sent arrived just in time for the cold weather we experienced last weekend. I have a love/hate relationship with tights. I love how they make my legs look, but hate when they aren't "just right."
What I look for in a pair of tights: 1. Comfort; if they are too tight I get a stomach-ache, NOT fun. 2. Durability; rips and tears on their first wear is the worst. and 3. Opacity; I personally don't like a super sheer tight.
I received the Merino Tights and they're super soft. So far they pass the comfort and opacity tests! I can't vouch for their durability just yet, but so far so good! They have a reinforced toe, sole and heel so I have high hopes. I will definitely be wearing these a lot through the holiday season.
At $69 they are a bit of a splurge, BUT I have to say I can really see the upgrade in quality from my other tights. I would definitely recommend Wolford if you're looking for a really high quality tight that's sure to last for years to come. They even have cashmere tights, yes, you read that right: CASHMERE. Pure luxury for your legs! They also carry bodysuits, dresses and so much more, be sure to check out their entire selection.
Also, if you own a pair of Wolford tights, be sure to enter their #UpdateYourLegs Facebook contest. And don't forget to keep up with them on Twitter, Instagram, Facebook and Pinterest!
