What on earth does one put on one's legs?

Going to a wedding in Glasgow in a few weeks time. The wedding will be inside but we will be walking across town from our hotel.
Have a fabulous dress that is predominantly black but with splashes of a bright colour too. What on earth do I put on my legs?
Too cold surely for nothing, even with a spray tan.
Natural/tan I may be 42 but my head still thinks I'm 25 and the thoughts of tan tights make me rock backwards and forwards a little.
Nearly black tights..... do they even exist anymore/acceptable?
Any suggestions?

Naked legs and a fabulous long swishy coat.

Marks and spencer do fab natural oil look tights. I can't remember the name but your legs just look naturally moisturised. I'm 42. If I can find them I'll post a link.

Second zippy. M&S's nude tights are really nice and definitely not the American Tan you're thinking of. I wear them all the time.

I do wear nude tights, for 'do's'. You could go down the nude fishnet route, if you were really feeling really anti nude sheer. I actually would avoid the nearly black option (too 'nineties) but I sometimes flirt with the sheer black with dots alternative. Very Clemence Poesy.

Tan tights. Just get a very thin denier and a decent brand and they'll look great.

Surprisingly, boots do great tights - bare look, 7 d in natural.
2 pairs for £6, and quite robust for so thin a pair

Or M&S bare oiled, think then are 5 denier

Definitely NOT Nearly Black!

Is opaque black out of the question? It depends on the dress and the shoes of course.

It's in Glasgow. Fake tan grin

No nude right . I'm 28 also from your neck of the woods (well WoS anyway) and I would get a spray tan and go bare legged . What are you wearing on your feet ?

Falke Shelina tights or hold ups. Almost invisible. I love them.

Anything other than sheer black tights!

Bare if you're not nesh. (I'm too nesh for bare.)

Good quality nude tights- being good quality stops them looking "old lady".

Micronets or opaques otherwise.

(I'm 36 if that helps).
