Can I wear nude shoes and tan tights in October?

or is it too summery for October? I have an event and was going to wear them with a bright blue dress, and a smartish tan coloured trench coat.

For an event, why not?
For running to catch a bus to Asda, I'd perhaps pass.

Always different for evening wear. Many people dress up (in less) for evening do's and the likes, often without tights at all. Go for it!

I dislike opaques as evening wear full stop.

Anything sheer and dark is a crime to fashion IMO.

Nude shoes are so over

Tan tights much better if worn at night though - for day they tend to look a bit weird (prosthetic limb-ish) if you know what I mean. The glamour of evening masks them!

I know what you mean, but fortunately it's winter soon and light for approximately half an hour each day, so hopefully no one will notice!

I have this lovely tweed Brora pencil skirt that I like to wear in winter, but it simply does NOT go with any type/colour of tights that I own.

This topic interests me.
First world problem I know, but I'm troubled by tights in general grin

What do we do in winter if we want to wear a skirt without the standard black opaque? And yes, I am hijacking. Sorry.

I wear either nude tights or opaques. I have some woolly ribbed tights too.

I am not afraid to wear nude tights in winter - but my office is usually boiling tbh.

So sorry but no you can't wear nude shoes and tan tights in October, nor in any other month IMO. The only thing to wear with tweed skirts are knee high boots. Don't do it!
