By now, spring should be right around the corner. But, with a new dump of snow, subzero stretches, and ice storms, winter seems to be making itself way too comfortable around these parts. So, if we're going to resign ourselves to a couple more months of wearing black tights, we might as well make sure that our hosiery is going to be the best.

And, because we don't have the patience for trial and error, we looked to Rank & Style for guidance. The site is a shopping tool that aggregates sales data, editorial recommendations, and product reviews to come up with definitive top-10 lists to shop from. (You can further break down products by popularity, quality, value, trendiness, and buzz.) After crunching the numbers, the winner came out to be the Wolford Matte Opaque 80 Tights.

Pricier than most of the others that populate spots two through nine — you can see a list of them here — the $55 tights are completely opaque, totally matte, and comfy to boot. Plus, they don't pill or sag like other "performance-quality" styles on the market or run at the slightest hint of a fingernail like other "designer label" hosiery. Click below to place an order (because, unfortunately for all of us, winter's here to stay), and follow the link to Rank & Style to see the other nine that made the cut. (Rank & Style)

Tights not your thing? We also really love Rank & Style's lists about face oils, hair dryers, and ankle-strap pumps.
