Since I need to ask, you already know I'm old (64)
I usually wear tights or go bare legged with a dress, but I just think in Winter I can't go without ... something. But what? The problem is that the dress is a white background print & so tights aren't right. Am I going to look totally ancient wearing nude pantyhose? If so, then what? Kindly help, please

Wear tights that match a color in the print of the dress. No way would I let my legs freeze. Tights are warmer than hose. What is the event? If it is outside- I would definitely wear tights or hose. Pantyhose close to your skin tone shouldn’t be obvious. Be comfortable.

You can wear pantyhose and not be considered ancient.

OK -- pink tights may work but now there's the shoe color ...! Dress has blue & pink paisley-ish print. Was planning on navy blue shoe. It will be an evening house party. Here in Charleston, that means being outside as much as inside.

Like that link to hose-are-back.
Both are worth considering -- thanks!

Is it a casual dress or a cocktail type dress? If the latter I would not wear tights. Wear the sheerest pantyhose you can find; match to your leg so it's practically invisible.

Nothing wrong with pink tights and navy shoes IMO. OR sheer pantyhose, but they don't offer any warmth and I find them MOST uncomfortable.

I’ve never found pantyhose uncomfortable. Especially not in cooler weather. I remember girdles and garter belts-before pantyhose- now that was uncomfortable. Maybe those who are uncomfortable wearing such- live in hot climates or are wearing the wrong size. One thing I like about tights is no panty lines. What I find uncomfortable is wearing a bra.

No that would be fine if she was 5 years old, don't love the look on adults. I think she said she lives in Georgia or one of the Carolinas. It shouldn't be unbearably cold.

Being as I live in sc I would wear sheer pantyhose to match the skin tone of my legs if necessary . tights might be too warm although we are getting to the cooler air season and sometimes down right cold . Id said it depends on the remperature outside and then go from there . panty hose don't give much warmth at all but since you are wearing navy blue shoes I would go with sheer hose .

With that dress, I'd wear nude hose.
