Product Feature: Tights from Berkshire...

Tights and hosiery are staples in my wardrobe collection.  As a busy professional, it's essential that I have an array of tights/hosiery in various hues and styles at hand--to ensure I am always able to pull off a more polished look while "on the clock."  So... When the folks at Lipton Publicity approached me about sampling products from Berkshire, I gladly accepted their offer!  See my thoughts on and stylings of their products below...

I adored this pair of sheer diamond hosiery (#8013)!  Donned them (last week) to an all-day conference I attended in Toledo.  They were comfy, durable and the perfect accent to my vintage houndstooth jacket. An interesting note about Berkshire: they've been privately owned since 1976, and their legwear history dates back to the early 1900's (They've been "doing hosiery" for a long time. That, I like as well!).

Additionally, I was able to test a pair of Berkshire's sheer dot hosiery (#8012).  

Yup, loved those as well.  Again, comfort and durability were paramount in my assessment. They withstood a full day at the office and dinner out with Mark that evening.  Plus, they were so easy to style (this leo print scarf was fun to pair with these dotted tights).

Opaque tights are perennial faves of mine; so, I was elated to try out Berkshire's shimmer opaque tights (#4643).  

What an elegant touch to sport to the office (especially on a day ladened with meetings!). And, as you may have already guessed, they, too, met my standards for comfiness and quality.
