    I would wear sheer black ones. For 2 reasons. Firstly, because it’s cold! Secondly, while the dress looks amazing on you, it’s shorter than I would feel comfortable with bare legs in front of co-workers. If it’s a non-work holiday party it wouldn’t bother me, but if it’s in front of your DH’s co-workers, I would err on the side of more conservative.

    LOVE the idea of sheer black with the seam up the back. Those would be conservative with a little spice!

    No nylons.  Ever.  Yuck.

     

    If you want a bit of coverave, either for modesty, or for warmth, try something like these sparkly tights

    I like the first and third ones from the left personally.  You could pair them with dressy ankle booties too, and not have to worry about wet/cold feet (if you live in a colder climate) and be more comfortable dancing too!

    @BrooklynWife:  THIS!

    Opaque black tights if you feel like you need something, but I don’t think you do!

    Def sheer nylons for a professional company holiday party.  Also a shawl or blazer or cardi if that’s a one strap dress.

    @Curiousgeorge:  I love those! I think they would be perfect with that dress and this particular event.
