I would wear opaque black but I hate my legs.... If I liked my legs I would wear nude!

Nude or sheer navy.

Opaque black if you're wearing it with boots, Acne Pistol style.

Bare legs if you are wearing more delicate shoes.

Not nude or sheer black, it could look really old fashioned.

I like the dress,it's lovely to see something in navy.

I might go bare legged. Would that work? I'm a bit tanned as I got back from Egypt only last weekend. Going Out Do is next Friday 5th. Should still have a bit of colour by then I hope.

Only shoes I have are black suede heels.

Definitely definitely navy. No question.

Nude/bare legs or black opaques

Bare legs

I would say back opaque. Youvwill be freezing witb bsre legs! plus black suede shoes will not look right. Far yoo heavy. will look fine with black opaques and suede shoes. Definitely not navy. Too many varoations on navy and will be hsrd to get it just right. Also there is black lace and you have black shoes.

Def not bare legs. Def not navy if your shoes are black.

Personally I would probably wear nude but you could also wear black opaque - but not too high denier.

Nude legs.
Get yourself some Garnier summer body (dark one)
Use it every other day until your party and your tan will hold perfectly well.

At first i was going to say navy, but then when you said you were going to wear black suede shoes i changed my mind. I think bare legged would be a bit cold this time of year. What about black fishnets ? That is what i would wear personally. Not too big a net, just normal fishnets. I wear Wolford fishnets a lot when going out. They are very comfy and hard wearing and i always get compliments when ever i wear them. Like all Wolford, a bit pricey but well worth paying the extra for. They are called twenties tights. Btw love the dress.

I would go nude - john lewis bare leg ones

Like the idea of fishnets, but not sure they'd look wrong with lace. Navy tights are out as I have no hope of finding matching navy shoes.

Lovely dress.

I would have said nude, but that's what the model is wearing in the link with black shoes, and it looks wrong. I think black opaque would be best, especially if your shoes are black suede.

Right... I am now going to find a nice quality pair of black opaques.
