The tights denier relates to the transparency or thickness of tights. Deniers can range from 5-100, with sheer tights occupying the low end of the spectrum. Opaque tights and denier leggings can be identified by a denier that is over 50. A higher opacity means that your colourful tights will be thicker and less see-through. If a semi-opaque look is what you’re after, chose our 30 denier tights and achieve a balance of comfort and sophistication.
Black opaque tights can be worn seamlessly on any winter occasion. Their lack of transparency makes them ideal for informal and formal occasions, such as heading into the office. As a rule of thumb, the shorter your hemline the opaquer your denier tights should be. This will help maintain a balance of chic sophistication in all your looks. When wearing opaque nude tights, it is also preferable to wear closed-toe shoes.
Sheer and opaque tights are both closet essentials, perfect for every occasion. See-through tights are ideal for warmer weather and elegant events, while 50 denier tights in materials such as cashmere are perfect for winter days. Opaque tights have a tighter weave, so they are less prone to snags and runs, something to which the delicacy of sheer tights is not immune.
