A quick cocktail dress/tights question.

I'm going to a Ball, and I'm wearing this dress. Will it be okay to wear black tights with it? I really don't want to go bare legged. Thanks.

Fine with tights, sheer black or satin 40 denier opaque

Not sure about sheer black, always think that looks a bit dated? Yes, was thinking along the lines of satin opaque. I suppose the fact that its in December helps with my decision, won't look so odd! I know most of the women will be wearing long ball gowns rather than cocktail dresses, so don't want to stand out too much.

Thank you.

Thanks, yes I love it!

I was doubting myself because I was looking at photo's of another Ball on facebook ( gah! ) and everyone was bare legged. Then I realised it was a Summer Ball, so not a good point of reference.
