Fight it though we may, tights season is coming... in fact, it's arguably already here.

Yes, despite the sun still sticking around past September (almost unheard of, we know), there's no doubt that there is a familiar chill in the air.

However, this year, we're determined to avoid the stress that tights bring with them and instead be grateful to them for allowing us to don our favourite summer dresses without freezing. 

And the 40 Denier Opaque Tights from John Lewis are exactly the pair we need. 

Why we rate them:

Flattering and comfortable, each pair of tights in this 3-pack is designed with an opaque leg look for a flattering silhouette and features a comfortable waistband to help reduce the feeling of them digging into your legs, or leaving marks after you take them off.

The tights have a sheer finish and are strong enough to resist pulls and ladders - in short, they're perfect for a fuss-free transition into autumn. 

The tights come in a whopping seven shades too, from classic black, navy, brown and charcoal to burgundy, teal and purple.

The John Lewis design comes in sizes S to XL and already has over 100 reviews, with the majority of customers giving them five stars.

Lastly, with three pairs for £8.50, that's £2.80 per pair, which is an absolute bargain. 

What the reviews say:

Customers praise them not only for their comfort and softness, but also say they're durable and don't ladder easily, as well as offering good support so you don't need to worry about hitching them up every five minutes. 

  • "I really like these tights. They are soft and the legs are nice and long - I'm 5ft 9 and I ordered the XL size."

  • "This are the best tights, they are soft, do not ladder and don't have the annoying double seams."

  • "Very soft and comfortable. Tights stay on very well and feel like a hug :)"

  • "It's too soon to see how well they last but these tights feel soft and are true to size so I'm hopeful they will wear well."

  • "The tights are excellent value for money. Soft and comfortable to wear."

  • "I love these tights mainly because they are comfortable, look good and don't fall down. No more hitching up tights whoohoo!"
