Nude or jet black?

I'm going to a rather fancy work related dinner party tomorrow night. I'm going to wear a short black dress with black patent leather pumps. I will be wearing sterling silver jewelry. Should I wear very light nude panty hose or should I wear jet black?

  • is it still warm out?? i'd go bare-legged, with a shimmery lotion applied for shine.

  • That's the same dilemma I faced at my husband's company Christmas party last year in Vegas. The sales girl suggested I wear black hose with my little black dress and so I did.

  • I used to go with black hose with a black dress, but now I find them creepy. I lean towards a shimmery nude for special events.

  • I'd go bare, or wear nude if you don't feel comfortable without hose.

  • I'd probably go with black.

  • Ugh. Never, ever wear black hose. They don't flatter anyone.

  • With a black dress, you should go with black or off black or even gray.

  • I would go bare or shimmery nude. Black is rarely flattering, especially when you're wearing other black things. It's not a funeral, so skip the black hose.

  • Thanks everyone for your responses. I tried the dress on with with nude shimmery sheer hose and with black ultra sheer hose. I think both look good but I think I will wear the black . . . unless I change my mind when I'm getting dressed.
