The Find: Tights for Warmth

The high temperature in Montana today? -5 degrees.  Tomorrow’s high temperature?  -13 degrees.  (That sound you hear is the muffled cries of the people who moved to Montana during the pandemic having never visited before.)  And surprisingly, this is actually a warm-ish winter.

How do you stay warm in these conditions:  You don’t.  You stay alive.  And when you need to wear professional attire to work, every little bit of warmth helps.

Falke are my go-to tights right now.  I like that they use actual sizes and not the A-B-C formula that leaves many of us in between sizes.  They have two styles that I love.

The first, the Warm Deluxe tights are made with a plush, velvety fabric that helps keep you warm.  And they’re 80-denier, so they’re pretty dark. The second are the 100 denier tights which have a nice thickness for cold weather.  I wear them with skirts or under pants, and I love how dark and thick they are.

Sold out in your size?  Bloomingdale’s still has sizes of the 100 denier tights in stock.

    I still like the Commando ultimate opaque tights best for warmth and comfort in cold months. I think I read about them here originally. They have the S/M/L size options. I have found there is a big jump between the sizes, so if you don’t find your size I would not try to “make do” with a bigger size – super saggy! I have found that my black pairs have lasted for years with minimal wear and tear, but when I purchased a grey pair they seemed to be a slightly different fabric and they got a small hole my first or second time wearing them.

    You should check out Uniqlo’s HeatTech collection. It is amazing and works for both casual and professional looks!

    The fleece-lined Altitude Tight from Athleta has been my go-to. Definitely less of a work-attire pant if you’re in a very professional office like you, Abra, but I think with a long tunic top or longer chunky sweater it would be absolutely fine for a more business-casual office.

    Athleta usually sells out of these every year EARLY, around October, but I’ve had luck checking back now and then when I need a new pair or on Ebay/Poshmark for my size. And I also wear them under snow pants while skiing.
