When it comes to cold-weather fashion, tights are often the subject of scrutiny. We love them for giving us the ability to wear dresses and skirts in subzero temps but, more often than not, we also fault them for not delivering enough warmth. We turned to three power stylists who shared their picks for the best tights to act as buffers against the chill. Meet the game-changers, below, for your warmest winter yet.
"The velvet opaque Wolford ones ($60; wolford.com)—they're the best because they're durable and the most reliable when it's freezing outside. They have a great stretch and they last. They're definitely an investment, so if Wolford isn't in the budget, Hue makes great black opaque ones, as well ($15; hue.com)." —Cristina Ehrlich, celebrity stylist to Allison Williams, Amy Adams, and Margot Robbie
"My top pick for the warmest tights is Hanes ($12; hanes.com). They recently incorporated X-Temp Technology into their hosiery, which is designed to adapt to your body temperature as your activity levels change for all-day comfort. Their Fall collections are not only super stylish, but will also keep you warm and cozy!" —Tara Swennen, celebrity stylist to Kristen Stewart, Emily Ratajkowski, and Odeya Rush
"I religiously wear Wolford 80 ($55; wolford.com) in the winter. It's the only completely opaque hose out there. Super chic and very warm!" —Emily Barnes, celebrity stylist to Jemima Kirke and Anna Chlumsky
