They're the key to layering when the weather gets chilly.
When the weather gets cold, there is one often overlooked accessory that is the key to layering your wardrobe: tights. They are not only essential in that winter chill but ideal during transitional weather to extend your wardrobe in between seasons. Got a cute skirt from spring that would also look great in fall? Put on some tights. Or is it one of those sunny October days that all of sudden turns cold when you've already picked out your favorite floral dress? Tights solve that. And of course, the best tights for women will last through the coldest months of the year.
The most versatile of the bunch would be black tights, which is why you'll find so many on this list. But, that doesn't mean they all have to black. Make a splash with a pop of color or go for a neutral pair that make you warm even though your legs look bare. Plenty of these super affordable, so you can stock(ings) up for the season with a bunch of options!
Choose from control top, high-waisted, or mid-rise―whichever feels best to you for all-day comfort. Then go ahead, pair them with any kind of shoe you've got! They look great with flats, heels, Chelsea boots, and more. You can even layer wool socks on top if you're wearing riding boots or ankle boots for added warmth. Grab a few pairs because that weather changes so fast, you'll be glad you're prepared!
With a mid-rise fit and just enough control at the top to be comfortable all day, these opaque tights give you the appearance of long legs no matter your size. They also have Smart Temp technology to regulate your body temperature. Plus, you really can't beat that price.
Two pairs of tights for $10? This classic brand really knows what they're doing! These sheer tights give you medium compression and have cool comfort technology to help regulate your body temperature for all-day wear.
These super soft tights feel as good as they look. The long-lasting opaque construction and control top provide clean and smooth lines that work with any outfit. We love the basic black, but check them out in some of their other fun colors, too!
If you want more tummy control, Spanx has got you covered. The super high waist gives you slimmer lines throughout your torso and help firm up your backside and thighs, too. It's worth noting that you should hand wash these!
Make your legs the ultimate accessories with a colorful pair of tights! This affordable option comes in a whopping 25 colors, each with a high waist and soft construction.
Reviewers love Commando for their signature dig-free waistband that make them super comfortable to wear all day. Their matte opaque construction will give you consistent color from toe to hip, giving the appearance of ultra chic long legs.
Sheer tights are fun and flirty, but boy, can they rip easily. Sheertex is known to be the strongest of the bunch, so you don't have to constantly be worried about snags and holes all day. They even have a 30-day guarantee!
It doesn't matter what your skintone is, because Nude Barre has a shade for you. In fact, you can go on their site and take a quiz to know which one to buy! They're all sleek and stretchy with a high waist for full coverage.
If you get chilly easily but still want something thin on your legs, Uniqlo has a line of products that are designed for heat retention. They also have odor control features and gentle compression to keep them ultra flattering.
Want to have some fun this season? Go for some patterned tights! You can grab a pack of four for less than $15 that are all different and equally as stylish. From animal prints to lace and more, you'll enjoy experimenting with your look.
Okay, there's cold weather and then there's really cold weather. If you live in a place that's the latter, get some fleece lined tights for additional warmth. They'll keep you cozy from your toes all the way up all day.
If you want the ultimate luxurious pair, Wolford is the brand for you. They're super soft with a wide, comfortable knit waistband and provide a smooth appearance throughout your legs. If ultra opaque isn't your thing, they have options of all kinds through super sheer and even pretty patterns.
