Oh, it definitely could, but that would depend on if the OP wore a shirt or not. Cutting a head hole or just chopping off the legs of the tights would leave a visible end to the covering, which ruins the illusion of looking completely silver without odd ridges/gaps/etc.
Reason I thought it would work for the lower half is because the tights could be worn normally, and the waistband hidden by whatever covering is used for the lower torso.
