The Best Black Tights Money Can Buy (and We Tried a Bunch!)

No one can survive a winter without a pair or two of opaque black tights in her wardrobe -- not even in Los Angeles, where the winter temps have been chilly! We tested a bunch and came up with our favorites, all worth every penny. Read more here: http://www.instyle.com/news/editor-tested-best-black-tights-review
  1. 1.
    Wolford Mat Opaque ($61, on sale for $37, wolford.com)
    Perfect opaque tights; they supply a uniform shade of black from waist to toe—even at the knees—and they don’t have that spandex-y sheen. The 80s don’t just look great, they’re comfortable, too. They are so soft they feel like heaven, both on your legs and to the touch. http://www.wolfordshop.com/product/boutique/mat-opaque-80/18420

    Falke's Matte 100 ($78, bloomingdales.com)
    The waistband on the Falke's 100s was very tight—from the second I put them on until the moment I took them off but they hugged my body in all the right ways. Falke’s winning factor? They truly kept me warm.The waistband on the Falke 100s was very tight—from the second I put them on until the moment I took them off. Falke's 100s hugged my body in all the right ways.

    Donna Karan Satin Jersey Tights ($28, nordstrom.com)
    Right out of the packaging (which is beautiful, by the way), these tights feel luxe. They are thick, but not too chunky, and very smooth. Don't let the term "satin" throw you off. The Donna Karan tights do have a sheen, but they are far from shiny. http://bit.ly/1P3xEPT

    ITEM m6's Tights Opaque ($108, shop.itemm6usa.com)
    The construction of these are very advanced because they are compression tights that increase blood circulation. I'm 5' 7" and the waistband on the size small reached all the way up to my bra...yes, really. Because of the Spanx-like fit, the tights were a bit tougher to put on than your average legwear. The tights pucker to accommodate a fuller bottom, creating a smooth, seamless look that really shows off your curves—even if you, like me, don't have any.http://shop.itemm6usa.com/shapewear-tight
