The One Thing You Should Never Do When Wearing Tights

Winter is here, and so is the cold. But that doesn’t mean we have to sacrifice our favorite skirts and dresses for those dreary, frigid days ahead. But what if your tights run? It’s inevitable, right? Well, only to a certain degree. It’s all about which kind of tights you’re wearing.

That’s why the one thing you should never do when wearing tights is buy the cheapest option. When it comes to tights, quality always prevails over quantity. So when your stocking up on new tights for the season, look out for tights that are completely opaque. Those are the best ones.

Secondly, make a note of what the denier count is for the tights. It should be clearly stated on the label. (Side note: A denier is a standardized measurement of a pair of tights’ thickness, this means the higher the denier number, the less likely your tights will rip). Ideally the best tights to go for have between a 100-200 denier count, and you can find them anywhere. So don’t settle for anything less than this denier count.

Now you can wear skirts and dresses without freezing your butt off. You’re welcome!
