I think nude tights would look odd, have you tried Sally Hanson air brush legs? It's like a spray on foundation which covers everything (not hairs, your gonna have to shave em off) and legs look ace. But it does get everywhere so lay a sheet out first.
That dress is fab and definitely calls for either bare legs (exfoliate and wax/shave then either Sally Hansen spray or St Moritz mousse are really good) or nice high quality, high denier but not wooly opaque tights).
I just saw those lovely glittery things (there's a skirt as well) at the Warehouse in Westfield the other day. I thought at the time they'd look great with leggings or opaque tights but you've got a number of colour options (not just black but maybe blue or purple/aubergine).
I think it depends on whether you mean to wear it as what was once known as a cocktail dress (with sheer tights and heels) or if it will be more of a fun, relaxed look (with opaque tights and flats or boots). I can't remember when I last wore a pair of sheer tights so I'd go for the latter option.
Back in the day I loved Warehouse silk dresses over a pair of leggings and all these years later they still do good quality clothes for the high street. They also make virtually the only pair of trousers that fit me in the crotch.
Having seen a lot of faux fur coats this season I think theirs is the one that doesn't look like it will fall apart by the spring.
