HOW TO GO ABOUT YOUR DAY WITHOUT DESTROYING YOUR TIGHTS
If you are a die hard tights lover, you will know that nothing ruins a day than accidentally poking a hole in your favorite pair while putting them on, or discovering a tear thanks to some rogue nail somewhere. The point is ruining your stockings or tights is sort of inevitable and heartbreaking at that, because where else would you find those lace patterns again that was just the right amount of sheer?
Well, the good news is that it doesn't necessarily have to be this way. As a tights connoisseur myself,
With so many shoes being more suited to bare feet, and fewer and fewer women wearing hose or tights, knowing how to wear leggings with a dress helps on the days when you don't want to have completely bare legs. On the face of it, this is easy - simply put on the leggings, toss the dress on over them, and go. You also want to be sure you get the length and style right and don't look silly when you're trying to look sophisticated, however.
Tips for Pairing Dresses and Leggings
The basic rule is to keep it simple. If the leggings are a color or pattern you wouldn't wear as tights, then don't wear them.

To which the simple answer is that the rule is the same for black tights as for oysters: only when there is an R in the month.
Quick shout out to the fishmongers, who are at this very moment are no doubt mobilising to point out that it’s not that simple: I know. (Something about breeding seasons or refrigeration; whatever.)
