What colour tights

Teal dress, grey shoes. Do I wear grey tights or teal tights? I'm 5ft5, worry about my legs looking a bit short if that has any bearing on the matter.

Black tight? Opaque.

Black or "nearly black" that comes up dark grey IMHO smile

<disclaimer - I am a black opaques addict>

They would be thick opaques. I thought black might make my legs look even shorter given there would be that third colour cut off by shoes at one end, dress at other.

My preference would be grey I suppose - seems less 'out there' than having teal-clad legs!

I think teal would be too 'matching' with a teal dress. Grey ok, if you can fund the right grey colour.

Black. Always ok smile

I might just go black tights and black shoes and stop worrying smile

I love grey patterned tights tbh but I'm not that current (aka fortysomething) so don't necessarily take my suggestion if you do mega fashionable wink

espanol Sat 27-Oct-12 22:31:34

Definitely not mega fashionable smile 30 something, clueless but trying sums me up!

Black, or a very dark charcoal grey. Definatley not teal.

espanol Sat 27-Oct-12 22:40:11

Thanks. I didn't really want teal so glad you all agree that's not a good idea!

What shade of grey are the shoes? Light, medium or dark? Are they suede, leather or patent? What style are they?

Sorry - loads of questions about the shoes!

espanol Sun 28-Oct-12 18:44:06

These ones - medium grey I guess.

Hope link works - on phone and not linked from phone before!

Looking at your shoes, I'd say a very dark charcoal grey would be your best bet.

espanol Sun 28-Oct-12 19:47:46

Thanks smile

I would actually say go for a dull yellow but I'm in Scandinavia and coloured tights are very popular.

Something like this in yellow

The link is for tights but the website also has stockings.
