It’s just about time to shed the snow gear and let those legs peak out. Women who have never encountered pantyhose may see hosiery as an itchy, tear-prone prison of suffocation, but it can actually be a fashionable, and even comfortable, alternative to pants. Tights can also be a tasteful way for women, middle-aged and higher, to enjoy the femininity of skirts. Here are five hosiery brands you should consider for maximum comfort, quality and style.

Wolford

Wolford

Luxury hosiery brand Wolford proves that in the right hands, tights can be so much more than utilitarian accessories that keep your legs covered.. Wolford has been praised by magazines, websites and die-hard fans alike for years. If it seems odd that anyone could wax lyrical about such a seemingly mundane product, you haven’t tried Wolford’s Velvet de Luxe line. At $44 a pair, they’re certainly not cheap. What they are is smooth, silky and available in over ten solid colors. That steep price buys you comfort, glamour and a glorious lack of pilling or unsightly lines.

Zohara

Who said tights had to be boring? Let your legs be the focus with Zohara’s innovative Art on Tights collection. Explore the always striking and often eccentric range of patterns available to tights-wearers with an adventurous side. While the creative options are seemingly endless, some restraint is advised on this website. If you’re looking for appraising glances from passersby rather than outright stares, steer clear of the Che Guevara print and stick to the many delicate floral patterns. Zohara tights aren’t just pretty; they’re comfortable, durable and actually live up to the often misleading “one size fits most” claim.

Express

If you tend to stick to basic tights, you’ve probably run into the problem of finding yourself in a drugstore, purchasing your seventh pair of discount hosiery in as many months. The good news is, affordable doesn’t have to mean disposable. Express carries a line of classic tights in classic colors that won’t warrant repeat visits to the store every other month. The majority of the clothes at this fashion-conscious chain are aimed at the 20’s more than the 50’s, but the tights don’t discriminate. For whatever reason, Express manages to produce consistently durable, long-lasting and comfortable basic hosiery. A basic opaque pair will only set you back $15, but has the capacity to last for years.

Hue

Because spring comes far more slowly to some regions than it does to others, it may still be appropriate for you to invest in a pair of warm-weather tights. Sweater tights are arguably among the best inventions in accessories history, because when made properly they truly do make wearing skirts in the wintertime a conceivable option. Hue is a great brand for sweater tights, because they make genuinely warm hosiery in flattering cuts and patterns. You can stick to basic greys and black or jazz up your winter wardrobe with a nice argyle pair. A tip for maximum chicness when wearing sweater tights: be careful not to pair them with a highly textured or especially long skirt, as this can weigh down the overall effect of your outfit. Choose A-line or pencil skirts that are at or above the knee.

Commando

Spanx is the most famous shapewear brand, but it isn’t your only option. That’s good news, because while Spanx shapewear tights are effective, they’re a little bit too effective for those of us who don’t like to experience the unsettling sensation of all of our abdominal organs fusing as one. Instead, try Commando’s Ultimate Opaque Control Tights for the dual benefits of smoothness and comfort. Instead of an aggressively elastic top that digs into your flesh, Commando’s control tights have the same invisible edge waistband as their other signature hosiery. The compression they offer may not take you down three full dress sizes, but it will give you the control and smoothing you crave.

Not only does expanding your collection of tights make for a chicer wardrobe, but it’s a great way to add variety to your ensembles in colder months. Most outfits are covered by a coat or jacket until the weather significantly improves, but your tights can still stand out and shine through!
