B.ella Codori Crochet Tights review

I tried these out today...the ivory ones, in size "tall."

Ah...the perfect environment, today, because we had one of our signature "arctic in the morning, sweating by afternoon" days. I was wondering if these tights, which are 70% cotton, would prove sufficiently warm/cool.

Hermmm...for that purpose, they definitely worked. The look is kind of interesting. It's more casual than I'd normally do, the first four days of the week, yet I found it integrated pretty well with my regular clothes. I found my grey micronet stockings looked far more corporate. Yet, so what. The key to business casual is to balance out looking nice and professional, with being comfortable and not having to stress too much about drycleaning and ironing.

The ivory shade (again, it's yellower/more cream than in the image) made my legs look a bit plump...I'll guess the darker shades would be more minimizing, or less maximizing? Hm. It's not something that bothers me, just fyi (for thin legs it might be beneficial).

Sockdreams.com didn't mention, but the toes are solidly knit rather than lacy--important, since you don't want your toes ripping holes there.

All in all, I'm pleased with these. I hope they launder well (my other Italian-made legwear has, so far).
