Nude shoes, no tights?

Hi all

Just hoping to pick your brains.
I am planning my outfit for a (rare!) valentines date with hubby - Just going for a nice meal in a local restaurant.

I have a rust red dress and would like to wear my trusty nude heels, but would it look wrong with no tights in the middle of feb? Or are nude tights a better option? or are they nasty??
I am not sure if nude shoes and thick black tights would look very good?
Shameful, I know, but I don't have any black heels!? (I don't get out much).

Black tights wouldn't look right. Nice nude tights (i.e. not thick, snagged, wrinkly, orange, or uber-shiny) would be fine, but I like nude fishnets the best as they're subtle but more modern.

Hope you have a lovely night!

Thanks for the link,and of course why on earth didnt I just look on eBay?!

Southbank - for some reason, I didn't realise until I'd tried all of the high street shops either! blush Now, if only a retailer would start selling them in packs of five...

Of course if you're sitting at a restaurant table your legs won't be visible anyway. If it were me I'd rather wear nice boots. But if nude heels make you feel good , agree nude fishnets a good choice.

nude fishnets look like old ladies thing

LadyVetinari Tue 11-Feb-14 17:17:25

DrNick -Maybe the old lady who inspired the Jenny Joseph poem... They can be lovely, as long as they're the right colour for your skintone. I hear that they're very popular on The Continent wink.

nude fishnets really aren't an old lady thing!
They look great if you want an alternative to nude tights,I think on my legs they look better tbh.
I have had lots of positive comments when I've worn them

Lol at continent. Haven't heard that for years

Think Kate Middleton - she always wears nude low denier tights smile

In the nicest way, for the love of God, do not follow the Middletons' frumpy styling choices.

Nude fishnets are a bit chancy in my experience. They can make your legs look really pasty unless you have a very healthy layer of fake tan on underneath. I'd be brave and risk bare legs.

Nude tights or nude fishnets. Bare legs would be bonkers imho.

Wear nice boots! It's February!

I'm with Polyhymnia. You're all insane! Put some boots on!
