Table of Contents

Choosing the color of stockings, pantyhose, or tights is not always straightforward because there are many color choices. Knowing what to match with your skin tone or your clothing can help you a lot in choosing the color. Certain colors just go better with certain occasions and locations than others. For example, bright red tights might not look very professional in an office-type setting, but they’d work great for a party or concert. On the other hand, black might be too severe for a casual picnic in the park, but they’d be appropriate for a grand evening at the opera. So lets see when to wear black tights!

Black opaque tights are the most classic and versatile pair of tights, but you can find black tights in so many textures, prints, and patterns.

However, because of the heat, you will probably avoid them in the summer months. Black tights can be worn in casual daytime events and evening events.  They span the gambit and are appropriate whether you are running errands or going to a holiday party.  However, what you wear with the black tights will really be the clincher for the seamless integration.
