    I think textured or sheer should work, but I wouldn’t go with opaque. I think since all the dresses are different, it would be best if all the tights were the same. I voted for sheer because that would please the most people and definitely wouldn’t clash with the styles of any of the dresses.

    How long will they be exposed to the cold? Frankly, I changed a tire in 15 degree weather the other day and my hands were exposed for like, 5 minutes. They got burnt from the cold and were red all night. I was miserable.

    I think after 10 minutes in 32 degree weather they’ll be FREEZING. I think tights are a necessity. And een if they all had on different black textured tights, I don’t think it’d matter for photos as long as they are black, I think it’s fine! I have textured black tights at home and you can’t even tell they’re textured until you get really close or feel them because they’re just so dark dark.

    Sheer is a no-no. Sheer tights will just look kinda icky. Even opaque ones–i think “business” when i think of tights like that. Like nylons, lol. Go with really dark ones that aren’t see-through at all. Even textured would be fun–they’re my favorite ideally.

    I just think they’ll be too cold and miserable with bare legs a-showing! And if you REALLY want them to not prefer to wear tights, tell them they can wear neutral ones, yes, like pantyhose. I have had to wear skirts to job interviews in February here, where it’s FREEZING, and i always wear natural nylons. At least my legs are warm.

    The low is supposed to get down to 0 on Friday, so the idea of bare skin out in the cold freaks me out! Plus, i doubt their dresses are warm! I’m shivering thinking about it!

    I think it would be really cute in photos if they were all wearing tights!  I don’t think it matters so much if the tights all match.

    I like the tights.   And agree with textured or sheer.  No opaque.

    I think if you are having photos outside and its going to be freezing you need to let them wear tights. I would not be too happy if I had to be freezing in a short dress to take photos, its not really fair. I think that if one wears tights they all kind of need to though. Personally, I think tights are adorable and im a little obsessed with them. I dont know what your dresses look like, do tights go?

    Also I need to see the dresses before I vote on the texture.

    i think it would be cute if they were mismatched, since the dresses are. but if you want them to be the same, i think you would be able to make the best decision since you know what their dresses look like.

    I think tights would be cute, but i would go with textured ones. Often in pictures of girls in tights, I can’t tell if their legs are funny colors like too tan, or if there is a shadow. So if you do tights, make sure you can tell that they are tights! πŸ™‚

    I think tights would be adorable, especially mis-matched ones.

    I’d opt for all matching tights, to tie them all together (since the dresses are different)!

    I love the idea of textured tights!
