Opaque tights are generally considered to be a girls best friend during the colder months as they are thicker than sheers - generally between 30-70 denier, but they can also be worn year round to hide all types of sins and either give 'extra volume' to thin legs or slim down heavy legs, depending on the colour chosen.
Opaques are so versatile and come in so many colours and patterns that they work with almost any outfit and tie 'a look' together - shorts and pumps, little black dress and heels, a short dress or a long jumper and offer a great cost effective way to make an old outfit look new. Opaque tights tend to have more of a matte finish than sheers, although there are some ultra stylish high shine varieties on offer from designers such as Falke, Jonathan Aston, Fiore and many more of the top legwear designers.
With their fantastic ability to offer the flexibility to utterly change the look of any outfit, it makes perfect sense to have a great selection stashed away in your hosiery drawer.
