Opaque stockings

Are these still "in"? Where does one go to buy these?

I have fairly large tattoos on my legs, so I dont wear dresses to work because I dont feel it looks professional but I really WANT to. Do you think that would solve the problem?

    I like them, especially in the winter. I have black, purple and some patterned ones. Usually with the purple and patterned ones, I'll wear a penci skirt and tall boots, so you can only see a little bit of the stockings.

    ETA: I buy mine at Target. They have fun ones.

    I think that would work, and I love opaque tights.

    I get weird colors at American Apparel and their is a brand called HUE that is at Macy's that you can get a ton of colors.

    I wear 'em.

    I wear tights every single day in the winter.  Under boots, with regular shoes, sometimes even under jeans on the weekend if it's super cold out.  I get mine everywhere.

    In terms of skintone tights, you might need to look at a dance store.  I just have black, navy, brown--the basics.  Or wear your dresses with boots.

    I have seen people wear them especially in the cold weather. I wouldn't know where to buy them specifically but I'm thinking any department store or clothing store might have them.

    You could also wear tights with a dress too. They're a bit thicker and can be worn just to lounge around or with a dress.

    I would probably just get black or grey or something. My tattoos go quite far down the length of my calves, so I need something that goes all the way down (as opposed to leggings or something). I really want to get some sweater dresses this fall/winter.

    Honestly, tights have been in forever.  As long as there is winter, I think there will be tights.  Or, at least, I will be wearing them.

    Cheap stores like Target have them for about $6.  They're pretty good quality, too.  Otherwise, any department store will have them, especially if they have sweater dresses or sell leggings.  I see the three together in stores all the time.

    I love black tights in the winter.
    Just my two cents

    My grandma tells me that wearing tights is childish, and not wearing nylons is disgusting.

    Sorry, that's not helpful.

    I think the tights would definitely work, and I get mine at Macy's.  With sweater dresses, I like to get the plain "smooth" ones, and with un-textured dresses, I sometimes wear textured tights.

    I second dance tights. Danskin is a good brand.

    I have lived in Opaque tights this autumn/winter. I'm sad it's already humid and warm this early on in spring, because I'd hoped to live in them for awhile longer yet.

    Now before you go getting any ideas about me, I know the people that run the business, I don't wear stockings LOL.

    You can get opaque tights pretty much anywhere. Walmart, Target, drug stores etc. Knee-high boots would look great with a sweater dress and opaque tights.

    Most department stores carry opaque tights. I have them in every color. I love tights! If you can find them, SWEATER tights are the awesome. I have a grey pair that are going to wear out one day and I will cry.

    I don't care if they are out of style or in, I love tights!
