Textured tights are thick pantyhose that include an overall or partial variation in the weave of the material. Pantyhose and tights are one-piece stockings with panty section.

Tights are thicker than regular types of pantyhose — especially sheers, which are very thin and tend to tear easily. Most textured tights are thick enough to resist tearing and snagging, although they may tear if they get caught on something such as zipper on an ankle length boot. The textured patterns on tights are often available in wide range of styles and patterns that are suitable for many different occasions.

Vivid colors of textured tights, in ridged and striped patterns, include purple, blue, pink, green and many other shades. These tights are sometimes worn for fun weekend wear to "dress down" neutral-colored wool skirt and colored sweater look. For more classic weekday effect, tights with ridged texture in neutral color such as cream or grey can be worn with similarly textured and colored sweater and wool skirt.

The best type of ladies’ tights for sophisticated or sensual evening look is those that combine sheer black stocking with texture such as lace pattern or ribbon-like, interwoven bands. These types of textured tights can add interest to plain black cocktail dress. Tights with criss-crossing, satiny bands for texture often coordinate well with sandals with straps that are similar to the band design. Other types of fancier-textured tights include tiny jeweled sparkles or sequins in striped or random pattern.

Textured tights look best when worn with shoes or shorter boots. Longer boots aren't the best choice because much of the pattern will be hidden and this may look odd. Although textured tights have patterns, patterned tight varieties don't necessarily include texture. Their designs may be printed on and feature smooth fabric with color and designs added.
