What colour/type of tights to wear with a black dress?
Get a pair of black opaque and a pair of black sheer. Forget the nude. Try the dress and shoes on with on leg in each pair. You'll know which to go for as soon as you see them on. I think fishnets would be too busy when the dress has sparkly bits.
I wear 40 denier for nights out, I only wear higher denier during the day with more casual outfits, I do agree that barely black tights are tricky, and only work on people have amazing legs that always look good.
