The right pair of tights can make or break an outfit—in terms of both style and comfort. A sheer, subtly patterned stocking can take a simple shift dress and turn it into cold-weather cocktail attire, and a ribbed woolen set can make miniskirt season last all year. Here, Senior Accessories & Jewelry Editor Christina Holevas walks us through eight essential styles you should add to your wardrobe this winter, all available on Amazon.

Calzedonia sheer polka dot tights, $15,

I love a swiss dot tight. They’re a little bit sweet and flirty, but still elegant.

MeMoi ribbed sweater tights, $12.60-$16.80,

These ribbed sweater tights are perfect for chilly winter days.

Falke matte tights, $23-$44.99,

You can never go wrong with a classic, black matte from Falke.

Vero Monte patterned tights, $14.99,

These patterned tights will immediately take your outfit to another level.

Calzedonia cashmere tights, $20.00,

Cashmere tights are like a (discreet) hug for your legs.

Wolford sheer tights, $55-$69.95,

Sheer black tights are always sexy and chic.

Wolford lace tights, $63.65,

These white lace stockings are statement-making ‘80s throwback. Keep things modern by pairing them with a short corduroy skirt and tall heeled boots.

Calzedonia sheer glitter tights, $20,
