Little Black Dress

Stumped on which tights to wear with your little black dress? The universal advice: avoid sheer nude stockings, bare legs are a better option. Follow these tips to pick the hosiery that will be the most flattering.

  • Classic: Opt for sheer black stockings.
  • Slimming: Wear opaque black (with or without control top); they are the most elongating.
  • Out of the ordinary (but still safe): Try a patterned or lace tight, something with a different texture.
  • Pushing the envelope: Wear a jewel tone like a plum or turquoise. You’ll definitely stand out.
