"I got these in both the grey and the ivory, and they're amazing. The cable pattern is noticeable but pretty subtle, and they are pretty sheer. They're soft, breathable, and really tall! I love that they're made in Italy, because I think it means I'm definitely getting a higher quality good (and I'm not exploiting anyone)! I like wearing them with jeans and knee-high boots so they peek out over the top of the boot now, and come spring I can't wait to wear them with dresses and wedges! They're perfect and I think they'll be staples in my closet for a long time."
