Haven't worn a short dress in over 8 years...tights or bare legs?

I've recently lost weight, which has given me the confidence to wear a short dress and go on a big night out tonight...but i no longer know what the done thing is??!! Does anyone wear tights anymore??

In February? Yep, sure do. I would go bare for a night out, but not for a few months. The actually night out wouldnt worry me, it's the getting home without freezing!

Ahhh. Taxi to venue and taxi home Jolie...would that sway you?
And if tights....which colour??. Sheer? Black? A colour?

Black tights, definitely. Skin-coloured are naff. If you want to be really trendy you could go for woollen ones in a colour - they seem to be what everyone's wearing round here

I'd definitely wear tights -I'm a proper chilly mortal!
What type would depend on the dress, but I tend to wear nude tights with a black back seam with most things.
Congrats on the new found confidence, long may it last smile

Black opaques in February . Too cold .
Bare , smooth faketanned in the summer , or after March / April when it gets a bit warmer ( but I'm old and live in Wales , so it may be different elsewhere )
