Here’s our TOP 5

Grab your needle and (matching!) thread and then start stitching around like a clock… from 12 to 6, 1 to 7, 2 to 8, etc.
This works best for small round tears on nylon tights, but can totally revive a pair of beloved tights.
A hole on your tights that’s pretty high up? Whatever. You can still wear them and no one will ever know… or judge, because, hey, we’ve all been there.
Ripped tights can be totally gorgeous and stylish. This is a great sustainable option that lets you extend the life of your tights while still looking tres cool.
Two pairs of identical opaque tights? Double up, because a. no one will notice the hole b. you will be so warm.
