If ever you’ve found yourself in a pickle for keeping warm in a slinky dress (and honestly, who hasn’t) you might want to take a page out of Kate Hudson’s book. The 38-year-old wore the sexiest plunging gown with a sheer bottom to this year’s Golden Globes and somehow still managed to stay toasty despite the unseasonably cold temps in LA.

The actress’s secret was the Wolford Naked 8 Tights ($33). These babies come in eight different nude shades and are designed to be totally imperceptible, thanks to their super sheer fabric which has a lightweight, natural finish. Aside from adding a layer of protection against the elements, these tights act like an airbrush filter on legs, so there’s no need to worry about a pesky shaving mistake stealing the show.

Perhaps the *best* part of these tights is their unreinforced toes, which means you can wear open-toed shoes without the awkward footsie debacle. Plus, they’re thin enough wear in the summer (the brand actually recommends ’em for warmer weather) so they’re really a $33 investment that’ll last you year round. Thanks for the inspo, Kate!
