Skin-colored Tights

It's stylish to wear colored tights especially when they are as nice as these lavender ones above.

Sometimes, however, I am faced with the dilemma of wearing skin-toned stockings. For example: for some outfits, I feel that bare legs will match the outfit better yet I know the shoes will be more comfortable to wear when worn with tights/ stockings (especially when it is a long day). On the other hand, I have this mindset that nude-tone stockings are only for old ladies (without the granny-chic). Hence, I'm caught in this catch-22 situation.

What will you have done? What are your thoughts on skin-tone stockings?

I must say I also am not crazy about flesh coloured stockings, but I guess it depends how you wear them. If the rest of the outfit is not dowdy and old-fashioned they could still look good - especially since you can't really see them from a distance:)

Personally I like skin tone tights - as long as they are not too tanned or orange coloured. The sheerer the better too. I prefer bare legged to tights but sometimes the weather wont allow for that, and also sometimes my blemmished legs wont allow for that!!

Oooh... that's tough. I'd say either bare or dark tights! That's my preference! :)

Though lavender is beautiful too!

I just love coloured tights, (going to look for some new ones to wear tonight). I think if you get really shiny skin coloured ones they would look snazzy.

Skin tone can work, but I think I would prefer maybe a nude textured type, like lace...

Depends on the quality.I go for comfortable opaque tights,like saha microfibre.We can wear it for the whole day even during bedtime.They're very comfortable.
