There’s no need to forgo your favorite frocks when it’s cold out. But if you plan to sport a dress or skirt when temperatures aren’t suitable for bare legs, you’re going to want a pair of thick, warm tights. (Traditional sheer styles just won’t cut it).
When shopping for warm tights, look for pairs made with cozy materials like acrylic, wool and cashmere. Thick nylon blend tights can also help keep the chill out. Moreover, styles made with soft fleece linings are also great. Not only does brushed fleece trap in heat well, but it’s also breathable and moisture-resistant to prevent you from getting sweaty.
Considering all this, we compiled some of the warmest tights on the market for women to shop. We included opaque styles that come in a variety of colors and sizes, as well as multipack options so you can stock up. You’ll find some pairs are smooth while others are ribbed or feature a cable knit design for a sweater-inspired look.
In addition to offering warmth, many of these tights contain spandex for an enhanced fit. Meanwhile, some feature breathable, cotton-lined gussets, meaning you can even go commando while wearing these (say goodbye to panty lines!).
Ahead, shop a range of warm tights from popular brands like Spanx, DKNY, Wolford and more.
