…which one for which occasion?

At Foot Traffic, we know from the sales of our tights, leggings and footless tights, black legwear is here to stay. Most women layer their legwear with tunics, sweaters, short dresses and short skirts but the need for coverage varies depending on the length of the top, the season, and the specific look one is trying to achieve.  Opacity of black legwear can vary from sheer to thermal. At Foot Traffic,  none of our tights or leggings are intended to be worn as pants but work best when layered with tops, jackets, skirts, etc.

Although we carry a variety of colors and designs, black is our best-selling color but it gets confusing which black legwear to buy with so many choices . Here are some product details to guide you as they you build your black legwear wardrobe.


Black Microfiber Tights/Footless Tights– Awesome fit and stretch due to 80% microfiber /20%spandex content; semi-opaque; great for under dresses and skirts; sheer enough to be dressy; year-round wear.

Black Perfect Pair Tights/ Leggings The perfect combination of great fitting nylon/spandex legs and a soft combed cotton panty to wick away moisture; no bulky seams so they are ideal under skirts and dresses; semi-opaque; sheer enough to be dressy; year-round wear.

 Black Signature Cotton Tights/Leggings– Natural combed cotton fiber and superior construction for comfort and fit; great coverage; some see through at the knees and thighs as the cotton stretches; perfect for cooler weather; easy to wear under skirts and dresses and longer tunics; casual look and feel.

Black Premium Cotton-Microfiber LeggingsSame construction and quality as our Signature Cotton Leggings but with additional 45% microfiber which adds extra opacity, warmth, softness, and exceptional stretch; slightly thicker than the cotton leggings; perfect for cooler weather; casual look and feel.

Black Fleece Lined Tights/Leggings– Incredibly comfortable due to the stretch and soft fleece lining; best worn in cooler weather and looks great with boots, short skirts and shorts; opaque enough for confident coverage; not intended to be worn as pants; casual look and feel.

Black Thermal Fleece Lined Leggings– With the incredible comfort and softness of out black fleece lined leggings, our new thermal leggings are a bit thicker for additional warmth; great under long sweaters, jackets and tunics; totally opaque; perfect for cooler weather; great stretch for flexible fit; casual look and feel.

Black Ultimate Fashion Leggings– Most functional layering leggings we created because they are totally opaque for confident coverage yet dressy enough to wear under a skirt or with long tops/tunics; can be worn year round; cut and sewn construction creates great fit and comfort; workout worthy.

Black Skirted LeggingsThe black skirted legging is different from the black ULTIMATE LEGGING as it has an additional feature—a 15” skirt that connects to the waistband for a built-in layer for additional coverage; sewn construction creates great fit, opacity, and wear; ideal under long tops and tunics; totally opaque.

Basic Black Three Pack (available in tights or leggings) – Value pack that includes one each: Microfiber Footless Tights/ Signature Cotton Leggings/Fleece Lined Leggings; great variety of materials for a variety of fashion situations.
