I recently purchased a dress to wear to my sister's wedding, but I don't know if I should wear sheer or black tights with it (or some other color). The color is "mink" (pale light pink). My heels are slightly open toed and are off white with a black trim. The dress goes down to the tops of my knees. Please help!
I vote for the pale nylons, the dark ones would look best with a darker dress. Dark legs under a pale dress would look unnatural no matter what your skin color.
Follow the advice posted here. Black goes with dark colors. Use no stockings or a nude color that matches your legs. I have found that for special events, pantyhose with a "high shine" or "shimmer" look super. You'll pay more, but they are fabulous. Givency, Berkshire, I think Donna Karan, Calvin Klein make shimmer pantyhose. You'll pay for this look--around $12 a pair--but it is worth it for a special occasion.
DO NOT wear dark tights with a light dress!!
Wear sheer beige hose.
You should NEVER wear hose darker than your dress or shoe colour.
