tarty depends on heels i would say. worn with flat calf boots you should be fine as long as skirt isn't vv short. i tend to wear them with knee length skirts, wool or cord. although personally i have crochet pattern ones (thicker yarn, fishnetty pattern) rather than actual lace ones.
This is how I wore lace tights to a party last Christmas
-opened packet of v expensive lace tights and and put them on -looked in the mirror exp[ecting to see hyper fashionable goddess like form -nearly started crying at how fat they made my legs look (this was a big lace print, iyswim) -pulled off tights in rage and slung them in the corner of the room -tried my party dress on with black opaque work tights -in a real mood now because I look like a frump from the 80s -cry -sulkily put on trousers instead (my new party dress has still not been worn) -got very drunk at the party due to all the tights stress and disappointment
