Just like a little black dress, a good white shirt and a made for you pair of jeans, no wardrobe should be without a decent pair of opaques, or several. Am I right? Of course I am. When we recently carried out a survey all across the UK, opaques were the one thing that came top of the list. Everyone has them. So, if you are an opaque virgin or just looking to restock your wardrobe, here’s my guide to THE opaques to buy this season.
Mega Thick Opaques
Opaques come in all shapes and thicknesses and right up there at the top are Pretty Polly 200D Thermal Opaque Tights. The thickest tights around, these have a fleecy thermal lining that make them outerwear in their own right.
Also right up there in the ultimate coverage category are Pamela Mann 120 Denier Tights (also available in plus sizes up to a UK size 32). A classic black opaque with added warmth, no cold wind will blow through these babies. These are ideal if you’re on a budget, but should you decide to look for something a touch more luxurious then I would recommend the Falke Pure Matt 100 Tights – not only will they keep your pins fabulously cosy, they are available in a range of 5 classic shades.
