Black or nude tights for Black Tie event

It's my first Black Tie event which is work related. Have gone down the safe but boring route of black knee length dress and I'll accessorise with some statement jewellery. Black patent Hobbs heels.

What colour tights? Event starts at 6 with champagne reception and then dinner followed by getting pissed and missing my last train home

I would say nude. Looks more summery.

Nude, it's summer.

At this time of year nude tights would be most appropriate

Nude for sure

Thank God it's unanimous. I meant the sheer black, 10-15 denier type BTW, not thick black winter jobbies.

So who has the best nude tights? I tan on my arms but my legs are corpse-
like and I will probably ladder them just by looking at them. I'm kind of fair to mid skinned and legs are tree trunky. Thank you!

With a black dress - nude tights - and always nude in the summer smile

Definitely nude unless you can get away without tights

Are "thin" black tights ever worn these days? I sometimes wonder

As in I have some but never wear them and wonder when they would or should come out!
