While sheer tights are de rigueur, opaque is undoubtedly still a major player in the legwear world. That's because matte tights not only make you look good, but also protect you from harsh weather.
These Simply Vera Opaque Control-Top Tights ($9, originally $12) are dark, but let me teach you a trick to make them the most dense of all.
To find out how to double your tights,
I once read that in order to make her legs appear really dark, Heidi Klum wears two pairs of tights. Smart! I recently decided to put Heidi's tip to the test, and it worked wonderfully. I found that it's best to use the same or similar colors when doubling your tights. This trick is also useful for those who want to keep their legs super warm. It's almost like wearing pants. My only complaint is that it squishes your toes. Try it sometime and let me know how it goes.
