It's a classic combo this time of year: a little black dress and sheer tights. So it wasn't surprising when Hailey Bieber stepped out in exactly that last week. But when we saw the price tag on her LBD — and her corresponding accessories — we did a double take.

For a New York City date night with husband Justin Bieber, the supermodel dressed to the nines in a $15,600 faux fur coat, a $2,490 minidress, a $2,500 handbag, and $395 sunglasses, all by Yves Saint Laurent. But despite the grand total of her outfit exceeding $20,000 (plus whatever her strappy stilettos cost), the finishing touch was surprisingly inexpensive.

Bieber donned a $20 pair of tights from celebrity-favorite brand Calzedonia, making one aspect of her ensemble relatable.

Calzedonia has made a name for itself among models like Kendall Jenner and Irina Shayk, plus singers like Gwen Stefani, Camila Cabello, Ariana Grande, and Taylor Swift, all of whom have worn various versions of the brand's black tights — fishnet, patterned, and sheer — this year. Just this past week, Selena Gomez, Sydney Sweeney, and Margot Robbie were spotted in Calzedonia tights, according to the brand.

Black tights are an easy way to spice up any outfit in the winter, from velvet dresses to plaid skirts à la Swift. But finding an affordable pair that doesn't snag easily is no small feat. However, I own multiple pairs of sheer tights from Calzedonia myself (which might be the only thing I have in common with Bieber), and I can confirm that they stand the test of time.

Other brands that customers swear by for comfortable, rip- and run-proof designs include Sheertex, Commando, and Spanx, which has a tummy shaping pair available for $24.
