It’s official: It’s winter and it’s cold, meaning our wardrobes are in for a serious winter-proof overhaul. Except here’s the thing: it can be hard finding the right outfit that serves it’s purpose and will keep you warm and toasty from day to night. Investing in good quality tights is a sure-fire way to add a sophisticated winter touch to your wardrobe, and ensures you can wear your favourite skirts and dresses?in sub-zero temperatures (nobody likes having blue legs). Meet the game changers below, and get ready for your warmest – and stylish – winter yet.

How much sparkle is too much sparkle? These Joanne Hynes AW16 tights have nailed the glitter look down to a fine art; adding perfect measures of comfort, festive style, and warmth all in one. Team with heavy knits or a practical LBD for the perfect pre-Christmas look.

If you’re not quite ready for full-on glitter mode, however, try these subtle substitutes – also by Joanne Hynes. These pair of medium- denier opaque tights will keep you warm while the thin line of glitter?will help to elongate the leg also, so it’s a win-win situation.

Go for bold in these daring leopard printed tights by Acne Studios. While printed tights can be difficult to wear and match with your wardrobe, the opacity of the pattern in this pair is light enough that you could team them with pretty much any colour. My rule of thumb is to?avoid wearing mixed patterns (i.e. patterned’dress and patterned?tights), as it’s very easy to start looking like your grandma’s old mishmash curtains.

If it’s warmth you’re after, go commando in these Ultimate Opaque Matte 70 denier tights by Commando.?With luxurious legs and a patented, raw-cut waistband that doesn’t dig or bind, these matte opaque tights will keep you looking sleek and smooth.

Stand out from the crowd in these beautifully painted-motif-effect wet-look tights by Pretty Polly. When hit by the light, these tights will glow a radiant blue/navy and are perfect for making a statement and giving your outfit the ?wow factor?

Feel luxurious in these grey cashmere-wool mix tights from Asos. The soft material will gently hug your bodies curves while the high-rise finish will add extra comfort (especially if you’re sitting most of the day). As for the colour, grey is a great shade to play with if you’re tired of traditional black tights. These are the bullet-proof tights your wardrobe needs this winter.
