Funny story about these tights...they were your typical dark brown sheer tights, until one evening, when mosquitoes were attacking me in an outdoor venue, I took some Off! brand bug spray and sprayed it over my outfit. The chemicals from the spray ended up disintegrating parts of my tights, leaving a distressed texture. So, instead of throwing them away, I kept them and rocked them. And yes, I know that the fact that the bug spray disintegrating my tights is worrisome - but, I'm truly more concerned with repelling the Zika with some good ol' deet.
