Sure, we all know what basics professional women are supposed to have in their closets, but if you’re buying one for the first time or replacing one you’ve worn into the ground, it can be a pain to find exactly the right incarnation in stores. In “The Hunt,” we search the stores for a basic item that every woman should have.

As cold weather sets in, I thought we’d do a roundup of some of the best tights for work out there. Ladies, which are your favorites — which are your favorite everyday tights, your favorite superwarm tights, favorite opaque tights, and favorite shaping tights? For me, my favorites for everyday are my Spanx shaping tights, for warmth, my fleece tights from Plush, and for opacity — which is lower on the list for me than comfort and durability, but I know is key for a lot of other women — are my Commando tights. I can’t wait to hear what your favorites are!

First, some general categories — and do note that we’ve talked in the past about how to care for tights, as well as hunted for the best thigh-high stockings for work.

Above: a few Hall of Famers, pictured: one / two / three / four

uniqlo-heattech I’ve always heard great things about Uniqlo’s Heattech tights, but I’ve never tried them– but for $7.90 (on sale today), it’s hard to go wrong.  They’re available in solid, ribbed, and cable versions, sizes S/M and L/XL, $7.90-$14.90, at Uniqlo. Women Heattech Tights
200-denier-tights Whoa: I always thought 70-100 denier was Very Opaque, so I’m surprised to see that H&M has some tights that are 200 denier.  For $12.99 they’re definitely much lower-priced than other options — and if you’re looking for more of a legging/tight hybrid, do check these out.  (They also have non-shaping 200 denier tights and fleece tights, listed separately.) Pictured: Control-Top Tights 200 Denier
navy-black-tightsI feel like reversible tights were more of a “thing” a few years ago, but there are still a few options around, including these affordable navy/black reversible tights from The Limited, on sale for $16.17 today (down from $26.95). (Here are some other thoughts about what color tights to wear with navy skirts.) The great thing about reversible tights is that, in addition to getting multiple colors in one product, they tend to be pretty opaque. The Limited also has some nice-looking cable knit fleece tights. Pictured:  Navy and Black Reversible Tights
commando-tights Commando has always been THE best for opaque tights.  Things have gotten a bit confusing now that they’ve branched out: there’s the “ultimate opaque” tights in regular and control top, as well as these “eclipse opaque” tights that are an even heavier denier (110) and rave reviews from customers ($40). I’d say if you’re looking for warmth in tights go for the higher denier; if you want lightweight but opaque tights, go for the regular 70 denier “ultimate opaque.” Pictured: Commando ‘Ultimate Opaque’ Control Top Tights
spanx-higher-power-luxe Control top tights are everywhere, but I thought I’d picture my preferred type of shaping tight: the kind that covers you all the way up to your braline to smooth out your midsection as well.  I’ve always liked these because a) control top tights often create a muffin top effect, and b) having a lightly smoothed midsection, without needing to wear another shaping piece (like a bodysuit, slip, or camisole) is worth a lot.  Spanx’s line used to be called “Higher Power,” but they seem to have done away with that in favor of their new Luxe line. SPANX® Luxe Tights
wolford-merino-tights If you’re looking to splurge, Wolford or Falke would be the top names I’d look to — these merino tights from Wolford are best sellers at Saks, and given that they’re merino, I’d guess they’re going to last for a thousand years.  They’re $75, available in sizes S, M, and L. (Also: hello, cashmere/silk tights — wow.) Pictured: Wolford Merino Tights

Tights used to be made only in plain colors with the sole purpose of being used as hosiery. Today, however, tights come in many colors, prints and patterns. They’re no longer just that sheer material you roll up on your legs when you’re wearing a skirt or a dress but rather they’re now also made thicker to be worn underneath anything and everything. Fashion tights can go anywhere from simple to really fun, wacky and whimsical. Here’s what we think would look good with fashion tights:

An all black ensemble – wearing an ensemble in black from head to foot may seem very sleek and sophisticated but it can also be too monochromatic and boring. To liven up an all black ensemble, why not try wearing fashion tights with it rather than the usual, plain, old ordinary tights? Whether it’s your Little Black Dress or just an all black outfit you put together that shows your legs, fashion tights are sure to add texture and an element of fun to it.

An oversized sweater – fall and winter are the perfect seasons for wearing those chunky oversized sweaters as dresses. Make your sweater dress outfit cuter by wearing a pair of nice fashion tights to go with it. You can choose to wear colored fashion tights or those fashion tights with prints and designs to add a nice twist to a plain sweater dress.

Outfits with Shorts – whether you’re into K-pop fashion, don’t feel like showing your legs but likes wearing short or you simply like the look of layered shorts and tights, choosing to wear fashion tights instead of plain ones are sure to be more of a fashion hit. This is also a great way to make shorts more wearable during the cold seasons.

Dresses – wearing dresses is always a great way to achieve a dainty and feminine look. However, during the colder seasons like fall and winter, dresses can be a little difficult to wear because your legs can get chilly and make you freeze. To make dresses more suitable for winter, wearing fashion tights underneath is a good idea. It not only provides warmth, it also makes your outfit nicer and more chic.

Miniskirt – there’s nothing more annoying than to see a girl wearing a mini skirt tug down on her skirt every minute because she’s showing more skin than she expected. If you feel like wearing a mini skirt but don’t want to be that girl, wearing fashion tights underneath can help you heaps. Be more confident to step out and move around in a mini by wearing fashion tights underneath to conceal skin.
