Bare legs for October wedding?

I have a wedding to go to on Sat, I've been so busy and have only just thought about what I'm going to wear. I can't afford to buy anything new.

All the dresses I own won't work with tights, apart from a few but they are black and will look too heavy, wintery and casual with black tights too.

Am thinking a pink lacy (quite heavy lace) shift dress with short sleeves and nude heels.

Or a floaty navy midi dress with orange&cream flowers, navy cardi and nude or cream heels.

Is it acceptable to have bare legs in autumn?! Will I look ridiculous?!

This is what nude tights are for smile

Can't you wear nude coloured tights? I'd just be cold with bare legs.

my shoes are peep toe confused

You can get nude tights that work with peep toes in M and S. I had a pair and they were great.

It's too cold for no tights

I went to a wedding two weeks ago and wore a summery dress and no tights, it was a lovely sunny day but I was FREEZING, my advice would be get some good quality flesh coloured tights, and take a cardi!

I had bare legs for a event on Saturday evening,a bit of tan to even them out.i was not the only one with bare legs.

I think you can buy peep toe nude tights. I don't care for the corned beef legs look myself.

Peep toe nude tights sound ideal, I have no idea when I'm going to find the time to get some but will try!

So it will look ok though, having a "nude" leg?

I haven't got a cardi that works with the pink dress I don't think, going to have to a have a play around with what I've got!

I've worn them for a wedding - they're great but look horrid without your shoes on.

I'm also off to a wedding this weekend and brought some new tights today.

Asos, Uniqlo, M&S are all good for tights, if you order tonight they should arrive by sat

I'd rather brave the cold than pay £3.99 delivery for a pair of £5 tights grin

Those tights look so weird, yet so perfect for what I need!

I wouldn't order nude tights online - you need to be in the shop to pick the right shade. They look fine when they're the right shade, awful if not!

Of course it will. It's only on MN that nude tights are derided.
