As long as you're going to a casual event, you can wear leggings anywhere, with any kind of dress, at any age. Actually there is a pic of a model wearing hot pink tights in my article the Dior runway. Hi, I have a huge birth mark on one of leg.
Instead, look for ultra-sheer nude hose that have very little color so the only evidence of hose is a slight shimmer on your leg. These pantyhose pair with any little black dress in your wardrobe because they smooth out your legs and blend in with your natural skin tone. Ideally, pair your little black dresses and nude legs with some nude pumps or black stilettos to create the look of a lengthened, toned frame. Blacks and neutrals make LBDs appropriate for nearly any formal event, but tights in soft, inviting neutral colors lighten the ensemble and make your LBD work for daytime lunches, parties or a meeting.
Dark gray, soft brown and rich dark berry colors all create a warmer palette for your LBD. Patterned tights -- such as black hose with black polka-dots and subtle woven patterns in cranberries and grays -- can also be worn for daytime playfulness. Add some Mary Jane pumps and a structured blazer for a polished look that takes that evening LBD into daytime, as long as it hits to a few inches above the knee or longer. Avoid any shimmery, bright pastels, white or neon leggings that add volume to your legs and clash with the solid black of the dress.
When green grass was yellow on pictures. Why does it match? Sure you can tell the answer by yourself after reading the previous ones. Tell me your opinion in the comments! Too much bright colors at a time! And as far as I am concerned I think she should add some neutrals to the mix.
Back in the time, this seam was such a symbol of feminity that, during world war 2, ladies used to draw a fake couture marks on their legs to give the illusion of stockings! Because they are very sexy, they should be worn with elegant clothes to avoid being tacky. Like a trapeze skirt for example. I think this lady below has got every tacky item possible on her. And bonus, the nude fishnet, which I think looks adorably retro with a ladylike outfit. Plus they create beautiful legs they are used by the Moulin rouge dancers.
Trick is not to mix them with other patterns. Just like blogger miss Pandora. Suspenders effect is great and subtly sexy! But only if you keep the rest of the outfit elegant and casual. This second lady is well dressed, but I think her jean shorts are a bit too small for those kind of tights.

Hi, Yes that would make perfectly sense with the shoes! If the dress has opaque navy in it then prefer slightly transparent navy tights. You can wear leggings with almost any dress. There are some things to consider, though:. Any fabric and skirt shape can be flattering with leggings. Stiffer, heavier fabrics like denim and corduroy may work a little better since that's less likely to cling to the legging material that can be uncomfortable when you're trying to walk.
One thing to watch out for if you choose a lighter skirt fabric is the waistband of the leggings. Look for flat waistbands so the outline doesn't show through the skirt, especially if the skirt sits higher on your waist than the leggings do. Tight leggings under dresses work best. Looser leggings run the risk of making you look saggy. They do, however, work under a very loose, flowing dress.
