The English call pantyhose 'tights' and tights 'leggings', but the distinction is the same--the difference between sheer and opaque hosiery. The opaque quality of tights is a product of the weight of the yarn and the density of the knitted material. Typically tights have been worn with heavier fabrics and to make a color statement. These days, opaque tights show up with all sorts of outfits--under tunics, short skirts long dresses, even with shorts. Look for fun trendy colors in tights, from olive greens to pinks, reds, purples, blues and varying shades of classic gray, tan and black. Some opaque tights are made with high waists, to provide some shaping and slimming. You can also find footless tights and tights with daring patterns like leopard spots, zig zags, dots and more. A wide selection of tights in your lingerie drawer is sure to liven up your wardrobe in any season.
