WHAT ARE OPAQUE TIGHTS?
As the name implies, opaque tights are tights that are not sheer. Unlike sheer tights which are thin, opaque tights provide full coverage look that is not see-through. Thick tights range in how tight their weave is. For a more semi-opaque appearance, explore tights with a denier around 40. Whereas tights with a denier over 50 will provide a full blackout look.
WHEN TO WEAR OPAQUE TIGHTS
Opaque tights are preferred to sheer tights in the colder seasons, thanks to their thickness. The dense weave will help keep out the wind and winter chill. For added warmth, quality materials such as cashmere are used to make tights that are ultra-light and ultra-soft. In warmer months, sheer tights are preferable to opaque tights for their ability to let your skin breathe.

HOW TO STYLE OPAQUE TIGHTS
For transitional weather, opaque tights are easy to style and pair perfectly with what is in your wardrobe. For a crisp casual day around town, black opaque tights worn under a knit dress with high leather boots will create a fun and flirty daytime appearance. If you are heading into the office, wear your tights under a long flowy skirt paired with a turtleneck, for a look that is both fierce and fashionable. It is preferable to wear opaque tights with closed toe shoes rather than peep toes, to avoid any fashion faux pas.
