I just got a bright orange red knit dress that is A line style with 3/4 sleeves and scoop neckline. It is barely above knee length. With low heel shoes, what color tights or pantyhose would be best? (I'm older with light brown hair and fair skin)

Errr... personally, I would wear black. Red and black together are my favorite color mixture, and if you live somewhere cold (which I assume you do since you want to wear tights with it) you can pretty much pair black with any dress and it will look nice and...wintery. If you don't want to do that, just go with nude skin colored so it doesn't look like you are wearing tights. I wouldn't really go with any other colors than black or nude personally, I think colored tights just look kind of really bad most of the time

I agree black. If the dress has no pattern tights with a textured pattern all black though could be nice

Black, & black shoes. Unless it is more orange than red. That could look a little Halloweenie.

Black would work best. If its not too cold out patterned tights could be fun.

Thank you everyone! Was thinking black or beige tights but now thinking about patterned as the dress is plain.

Pantyhose in my opinion is always the best choice however, I don't care for the look of tights for adult women.
I would go with black or nude for the color but again this is my own personal preferance.
Whatever you like and think looks good on you is how you should dress.
It is your body, your clothing, your decision.
