There is nothing quite so cosy as a pair of winter tights when it comes to the cold weather. They are so versatile, as winter tights can be worn under trousers for maximum snuggliness or you can wear them with a lovely winter dress or skirt, knee-length boots, and you will then have that classic look and warm legs too.
Winter tights are normally made from either wool, cotton or Nylon mixes. Any of these can come in different density and will keep you warm for sure. Obviously, the more natural fibres you try to wear the warmer your legs will be, as the wool and cotton tights will allow your skin to breath. Having said that, there are some real heavyweights these days in the opaque tights section that are made from Nylon mixes, but because they go up to 300 denier, they are almost like a trouser.
Tights differ from trousers because their close-knit fabric traps air between them and your legs; therefore, the warm body air that you give off is then kept close to your skin. This is what helps to keep you warm. A little like a sleeping bag. That too absorbs your heat and keeps it in the bag.
These days winter tights come in all sizes and colours as well as fibres. If you’re new to the winter tight market, then perhaps now would be a good time to give them a try. Take a good look at your wardrobe and pick out some of the main colours you regularly wear. Then go to our website and choose an appropriate pair of tights to go with them. Many people usually invest in a few pairs of black opaques which will normally go with most outfits. These are their go-to winter tights. Here are a few for you to take a look and maybe try.

Love thick denier tights under my trousers I also put them under my cycling trousers completely stops the cold getting through.
For the winter you cant beat Wolford 70 denier – feel nice, wash well – a bit expensive compared to others like Charnos but well worth the extra. Under jeans, they keep my legs toasty warm
I love tights so much, they are the best item of clothing ever designed and on really cold days I find wearing a pair of 80 denier opaque tights under my jeans keep my legs and feet warm enough and feeling so comfortable at the same time. I love them.
Just adore 30 denier tights under trousers and jeans for complete snugness.
Great article just to remind us that even on sub-zero days, tights can be an option.
Personally, I love cashmere tights, but if my budget doesn’t stretch that far, good quality wool and cotton are a great alternative. And I go bold … I don’t just buy black tights. Add colour and still keep the cold out.
