If your mind is switching between panic buyinglast minute Christmas gifts to ordering last minute party outfits, you're not alone. But one thing's for sure – celebrities are out in full force to help you with the latter. Giving us all endless outfit inspiration at their many festive soirées, we can always count on the stars to put together outfits combinations that'll never fail. And one item they've all had in common recently is their love for one accessory: tights. And in particular, fun party tights.

When it comes to tights, the rules are there are no rules. But of course hosiery is often a go-to once temperatures drop. Don't feel like you have to go straight to the 50 deniers, though, as this year it's all about sheer styles. While we want to pay homage to the new wave of hosiery that has been springing up in fashion circles – tights are covered in logos, lace and all sorts of embellishments, we can't help but be drawn to the minimalist style of 10,15 and even 20 denier pairs. Cool-girl Zoë Kravitz gave a lesson in how to style them at the Saint Lauren spring/summer 2023 show earlier this year, and it's all about top-to-toe black. Luckily, H&M has a £4 pair so you can easily recreate this look.

That's not to say you have to stick to classics, however, as Valentino made a strong case for opaque pairs in punchy pink on the runway – as seen here on Selena Gomez for a recent Saturday Night Live appearance. And we love how she's embraced the colour of the year in all it's #Barbiecore glory with a matching sweater dress. Calzedonia has a similar £7.99 pair (shop them below) and they also come in 20 (yes, 20!) other colours, if pink isn't for you.

Earlier this month, Sienna Miller also arrived at event wearing sheer lace, toe-thong tights. And while on paper they sound kinda crazy, in real life, they look effortless on Sienna. And this is a fun way to wear low-denier tights for party season.

Supermodel Jourdan Dunn also made a case for designer logo tights and teamed them with an LBD and black courts – classic. As well as fashion's haute hosiery, there are some excellent pairs on the high street that add a hint of polish to any outfit and won't break the bank, either. This is why we've decided to share the very best tights that are guaranteed to lift your upcoming party looks. And if you're worried about warmth, even sheer tights will be slightly cosier than going out in winter bare-legged.
