It doesn’t take long for me to get a hole in the toe of a pair of tights — or get my tights caught in a screw underneath a table top, trying to cross my long legs! For these reasons I don’t like to spend too much on my tights, as it feels like wasting my money.
In my opinion, H&M has the best selection of affordable tights in Norway, with Lindex a strong contender. Since I’m tall, I always buy size Large to get the much needed leg length.
After a recent trip to H&M I came home with two different pairs of tights, ready to test drive them to find my favourite winter tights. My favourites were H&M’s fleece tights. These are matt and more rough and sporty than sleek, but you won’t believe how soft and warm they are! Available in sizes Small to Large, they are great for wearing with more sporty outfits.
The fleece style is also available as leggings, if you prefer to wear your tights with socks. This is a great option if you are really tall and can’t find tights with the appropriate leg length.
H&M’s 200 denier tights are also matt. They are not as warm as the fleece pair, but with a finer gauge they are more suitable for more dressy looks and on those cold days when you spend most of your time indoors. This style is available in sizes Small to Extra large.
