    @Curiousgeorge:  It’s sticky and gross but really works I swear….spray hairspray on the bottoms of your feet after the nylons are on!!! Put your shoes on before the hairspray dries all the way.

    I would go bare – but if you think you would be cold, then black tights, it will create a more winter look and still formal. 

    I just think sheer nylons/pantyhose look so dated.

    @Sweetjennygirl:  Good to know that tip! I have to wear pantyhose for work anytime I wear a dress or skirt   -____-

    I would wear them because I know I would be cold!

    Depends on the company and its culture. I wouldnt be comfortable wearing something that short to a work party without black stockings
    (sheer is fine)  to make it a bit more conservative.

    I am assuming this is a work holiday party. If its family then that is another matter

    your legs are smoking hot

    I think you could go bare, easily. I also think a sheer black stocking would look great as well. You could even go with a garter belt to make it more fun

    You’re gonna’ look great either way!  Do what feels comfortable.  I don’t think anything you suggested would look bad.

    For a work function with my husband I would worry that it’s a bit short and revealing.  Don’t get me wrong, you look HOT in the dress, but you don’t want to be the wife that everyone’s talking about.

    You look great, but I would wear black tights- I think it is inappropriate not to wear something on your legs in the winter.  Unless you live in a super hot climate?
