I've got to attend meeting next Tuesday at work, it's important that I look smart and professional. I work for a voluntary organisation and my usual attire is somewhat casual; dress, thick tights and ankle boots or skinny jeans and a cardigan are my preferred choices. I've got a navy dress which is lovely, it's smart yet comfortable and yesterday I bought some very plain navy shoes. So what I need to know if what colour tights? If it was summer and my legs were bruise free I might have got away with bare legs but sadly this is not the case and my legs look hideous.
Imho you just need nude tights marks bare cooling or something similar. Navy never matches and anything else will not look polished if that is the look you are going for. If you really want bare legs and can't stand nude tights, then sally Hansen airbrush legs is a sort of leg make up which works really well to cover blemishes
I wish I could but I banged my leg on the bed yesterday morning and have a huge bruise just below the knee so it would be visible. Would nude tights look horrendous? Should I go a shade lighter or darker if I can't find colour of my actual skin?
I know it won't win any style cred on here but if you google princess Kate of Middleton she always wears the bare look sheer tights thing and I think it just looks polished it is because the tights are so fine that it looks okay. Hers are apparently from John Lewis
