Whether you’re a beauty novice or a confirmed fashionista, this topic is for consulting Mumsnetters on all things style-related. Plus, check out our Swears By page for the inside track on the next Mumsnet must-have.
They aren't see thru. But, if I am sat on the floor cross-legged then you can see the fabric thins over the knees (they are viscose and I have other viscose things which are the same. The shimmer ones may not suffer with that)
I am wearing with floral dresses, pumps or mary jane shoes. Tux jacket, or full-skirt trench.
I think you'd be fine fiver, and I like the look where the leggings are a little ruched around the ankle. You can always just pull them up more at the top of the thigh (or pop them in the dryer, they may shrink?)
They've just arrived but on balance I prefer the Next ones- more "black" IYKWIM. Kept a pair of their tall bootleg jeans too. (squirrels them away to back of wardrobe, so she can bring out at later date and say "this old thing?)
I also do that, along with hiding receipts and then saying "oh that <<insert name of store>> purchase? Yes, that was for the kids"......Of course this option doesn't work with Net A Porter etc...sadly!
Because I am an idiot big Tilly, I don't know how to link (but I will learn!) If you go the Next directory online, go to Tall- and they are there. Really long, nice on (or as nice as leggings can be) Their tall trouser range is too long for me!
