Keep it wild this season, as animal-print tights are a perennial favorite. They’re a fuss-free way to add a little extra oomph to just about any outfit, whether it’s the minimal side or full-on, like Jennifer Lopez’s look.
9. Sheer black tights
Back to basics! Don’t write off plain black leggings just because they’re a staple. Black, slightly transparent tights are big this season—not only on the runway, but also IRL. Which is great because they’ll never go out of style.
Tip: What does DEN mean for tights?
You’ve definitely seen this term when buying tights—but what does the term DEN actually mean? DEN stands for “denier,” and refers to the weight of the tights yarn per 9,000 meters in grams. The higher the DEN or denier, the heavier the yarn and the more opaque your tights will be. Most tights start at 10 DEN, making them very thin and sheer. Anything over 40 DEN is opaque. There you have it!
