There's a big difference between shopping for tights and shopping for Winter tights. The latter requires a more particular eye, and a more tedious search, for a pair (or two) that's supremely cozy yet still flattering. If you haven't heard of fleece-lined tights, then listen up. This kind — we especially love the ones from Plush — features a cozy, warm layer of insulation between you and the elements without anyone being the wiser. If you're looking for the most slimming silhouette, then choose a pair of tights with an extratight weave (100 denier and above is the best) for maximum warmth. Sweater tights are also a great option for a more casual look, but make sure to avoid pairs with a loose knit design (or beware of air holes!). Also, here's an insider tip: Express's tights are an amazing option if you're on a budget, and also consider investing in a pair of reversible tights for one-stop shopping (and extra warmth, since they're two-sided). Now that you've taken notes, pull out your midi skirts, minis, and shorts, and shop our top 21 no-fail Winter tights picks below.
