I think black dress, tights and shoes might be a bit, well, black tbh. I would go for nude tights and different colour accessories, not necessarily bright - maybe metallic. It also depends on where the wedding is being held - church, registry office etc.
Fishnets are a step too far into the scary unknown for me!
I could go the trousers route, but I really like this dress and have never worn it
So if I did do the nude tights, would black shoes be okay with them? Need to get out of the mindset that I look like a cast member of TOWIE when I wear them!
So black dress, nude tights, black shoes and some colour with accessories. I'm not very good with bold colours so likely to be quite subtle with them...
Wedding is in the UK, not sure if it's church / registry office. Am going with the best man but I've never met anyone else going so it's all a bit scary and I don't want to show up the best man by turning up looking like a loon!
Either nude tights, 40 denier tights with bright accessories, or if you've got the legs to carry it off, bright tights.
I don't like nude tights, but have worn them to weddings a lot as I also have blue legs so even if it's hot,so I need to cover them up. If you get some that are a nice texture, and a good colour (try a few different ones) they'll look fine
Don't wear coloured tights, you'll look mental imo and the best man is bound to hate them on sight. Invest in a really nice pair of nude tights [two pairs for ladders] in a non-TOWIE hue and you'll be fine. Black shoes = fine if not too boring. ie Work pumps Splash of colour definitely. Bright clutch bag and scarf, plus chunky necklace or bracelet depending on neckline and you are done.
I would go with the dress, nude tights, and I would buy some bright bold jewellery, matching shawl/cardi, bag and shoes.
Accessorise do some lovely bright bags and ebay is great for jewellery - I got a lovely peacock feather necklace last year for a about £3 from China. Looked great with a black dress and turquise shawl.
M&S Autograph tights in 10 or 15 denier are lovely and silky and they do very good colours. The 'illusion' is milk bottle leg colour and 'natural tan' really is quite natural. They last for ages without laddering too.
Since first posting, I went a bit credit-card happy and bought myself a lovely (I think!) dress for this wedding.
I was convinced by the model wearing the black tights, and thinking it would look okay even for a summer wedding? (I even have a similar gold cuff thing which I think looks fab with the dress in the pic).
The dress is lovely and looks nice on (and I don't say that often!)
Only difference would be that my shoes are black...
