1. Super-opaque tights without a control top will become your new winter staple.

Promising review: "I wear dresses and tights every day in the winter. They are comfortable and hold up well without getting snags and runs. They are a great thickness too — keeps you warm but still like pantyhose rather than leggings (no disrespect, but I hate the legging look and it's definitely not what i'm going for). The waist band is comfortable and doesn't fall down, which is key." —Cavewoman15

Price: $10.99+ / Rating: 4.3/5 / Sizes: 1–3 / Available in four colors.

2. Semi-opaque tights in a rainbow of colors will get your through cosplay and regular-attire needs.

Promising review: "These are the best matte opaque tights I've found. They have a medium weight that will keep you warm, even in 40-degree weather. They provide structure to your legs and stomach area without being uncomfortable, unlike some control tops I have found. Sturdy and not shiny unlike other microfiber tights. Definitely worth purchasing!" —Yue S.

Price: $9.99+ / Rating: 4.3/5 / Sizes: One size / Available in 13 colors.

3. Super-warm, colorful tights will become your second (toasty) skin.

Promising review: "I wear these almost daily in the winter. They mold to your shape after a few wears. Not too tight but not so loose that they snake down, either. I'd say one pair lasts about a season or two. Hand wash and lay flat to dry keeps them soft." —JennyinDC

Price: $5.27+ / Rating: 4.2/5 / Sizes: One size.

4. Faux thigh-high tights will cause quite the stylish stir.

Promising review: "These tights were a bit hard to get on at first (you need to stretch them out with your hand) but once they are on, they are adorable!!! I am so excited to finally own a pair of these, they are very cute and don't look cheap or fake at all. The black part is very solid which is the look I was going for." —miranda

Price: $9.99+ / Rating: 3.5/5 / Sizes: One size / Available in four styles.

5. A two-pack of trusty opaque tights will turn short outfits SFW.

Promising review: "Definitely worth the price. I'm 5'3, 112 lbs. with long-ish legs and the size Small fits perfectly. They are so comfortable and well made. I also like that there's a very small tag so I can tell the front from the back." —SmileMore

Price: $13.85+ / Rating: 4/5 / Sizes: S–M, Tall, Plus Petite / Available in four color combos.

6. Opaque mid-rise, control-top tights will look sleek under your winter dresses and skirts.,

Promising review: "The color is really dark, black, opaque and the fabric is comfortable, silky, and feels like this pair will last for a while. The control top is not very tight, it's rather comfortable. I bought the small (I'm 5'4", 119 lbs.) and it fits perfectly." —Nanda Dyssou

Price: $6.59+ / Rating: 4.5/5 / Sizes: S–2XL / Available in three colors.

7. Animal fake-out knee-highs will be the envy of your coolest friends.

Price: $7.50+ / Rating: 4.2/5 / Sizes: One size / Available in other style combos.

8. Body-shaping tartan-print tights will amp up your go-to LBD.

Price: $15.50+ / Rating: 4.6/5 / Sizes: S/M, M/L / Available in four colors.

9. Patterned fishnet tights will get you through a variety of wardrobe needs.

Promising review: "The fit was perfect (queen) and I expected them to be long because I'm short, but it works for me. I do roller derby and so far the pair I wore held up through the games with no holes." —a.l.

Price: six-pack for $19.99 / Rating: 4.3/5 / Sizes: One Size Fits Most, Queen.

10. Matte tights will have opaque coverage but still feel lightweight.

Promising review: "My daughter has to wear black tights for her school uniform and she prefers opaque tights. She's nearly 5'3" and about 95 lbs so she's skinny. These fit well and have lasted so far without holes." —Rena

Price: $6.83+ / Rating: 3.9/5 / Sizes: S, Large/Tall

11. Floral-motif tights will keep it interesting without opaque coverage.

Promising review: "I have really big muscular legs, so finding stockings that fit can sometimes be a hassle. They say they fit up to a certain weight and then they don't. These fit great and they look great." —Vexy Girl

Price: $19.99+ / Rating: 4.4/5 / Sizes: Regular, Queen / Available in five colors.

12. Garter-look tights will be one of the easiest ways get your Rihanna on.

Promising review: "I was a bit worried about how these would look on me as I am 5'4" with very short legs. Thigh highs usually cover my entire leg with a bit of slack, so I thought maybe it would just look like I had black tights on. Nope! They are adorable and I've gotten loads of compliments on them." —Angela

Price: $12 / Rating: 3.9/5 / Sizes: One size

13. Ultra-soft transition tights will work for dance class, life.

Promising review: "The tights are comfortable and look good. I like the transition foot, because I can roll the tights up and wear flip flops going to and from class. The size chart on the package is accurate, but it is different than the standard Amazon size chart for women, so be careful." —L. Morales

Price: $6+ / Rating: 4.3/5 / Sizes: girl's toddler, girl's child, S/M, L/XL, 2XL / Available in 14 colors.

14. Reversible tights will give your wardrobe some real ~flexibility~.

Promising review: "I have bought literally every pair of tights you can imagine. I have acrylic nails that rip holes easily and I always wear them with high boots that also rip through tights. These tights have been mishandled and not a single tear. Slightly more expensive than the offerings at your local Walgreens, but 100% worth the purchase." —Alexa Vogue

Price: $29.99+ / Rating: 4/5 / Sizes: A–G / Available in five color combos.

15. Colorful gradient tights will bring in the focus on your fab shoes.

Promising review: "They don't become see-through as they stretch so they're perfect. They are one size fits all, I'm only 5'4" and they're a little low in the middle." —Brusso

Price: $2.99+ / Rating: 3.8/5 / Sizes: One size / Available in 16 colors.

16. Opaque control-top tights — in a wide range of sizing — will come in handy over and over again.

Price: $8.12+ / Rating: 3.8/5 / Sizes: Medium, Tall, Petite, 1X/2X–5X/6X / Available in seven colors.

17. Cute tattoo-print tights will transform a tired mini skirt.

Promising review: "If you have darker skin it might look a bit off depending on how dark you are, but the product itself is great. I'm Hispanic so I'm a light brown, but it's still cute." —Rose Helen

Price: $5.50 / Rating: 3/5 / Sizes: One size

18. Graphic striped tights will lend a whimsical vibe to a going-out ensemble.
