But Opaque matt textured leg with shiny fabrics is a contrast, which is in fashion at the moment, it plays up the femininity of the evening dress because of the contrast with the opaque matt tight. You could use a satin opaque in a 40 denier to give you a more'eveningy' effect? Wolfrd used to do a delicious one, and IIRC they used to do a stocking too. Try Mytights.com or stockingshq (avoid the discussion boards on stockings site tho!)
I tend to do bare legs in the evening,tbh,to avoid the sheer tights thing. I do think they are aging,as everyone wears opaques now. Would only do bare with fake tanned legs though,and never in daytime in winter!
