Black opaques have gone from fashion statement to all-season everyday wear, meaning you need to have a good supply on hand at all times. While pricier lines like Falke may have endurance going for them, TopShop’s 120 Denier opaque tights are a very inky black (unlike some blacks that really read more charcoal), have a comfortable waistband that doesn’t squeeze, and, at $16, can be bought in multiples so you can keep a pair at the office for emergencies.
