Can I wear gray, floral patterned tights to a business dinner at a country club with a gray wrap dress? Cocktail attire is suggested. I bought some pretty gray floral patterned tights to liven up the dress, but after reading many of your answers I’m wondering if I should go with black sheer hose. The dress is long sleeved & I’m going to also add color with blue & silver jewelry. I’m also thinking of chucking the whole idea & going with a royal blue ruched & sleeveless dress…help!

Can I wear gray, floral patterned tights to a business dinner at a country club with a gray wrap dress?Your gray dress sounds perfect for a business dinner event. Since cocktail attire is suggested, sheer black stockings / tights with black sling back or black pump style shoes would be a better choice than floral tights with your gray dress. Cocktail attire says “semi formal” and business dinner says “conservative”. Floral tights are more informal than sheer stockings / hose and will draw attention to you legs. Silver and blue jewelry (one statement piece) will draw attention to you instead of your legs and add some style to your outfit.

Can Your Image Be Helped?
Have you ever been asked the question, “What’s your style?” only to think, “Do I have a style?”  Not surprisingly many women have this same reaction.  With the popularity of television shows like “What Not To Wear,” women have become more accustomed to seeing “regular” women undergoing makeovers.  That’s good because it’s changing the perspective that many women have that personal image consultants or fashion stylists (the two terms are used interchangeably) only work with the rich and famous. But today this is no longer the case as working women, stay-at-home moms, senior executives and retired women are all seeking advice about their wardrobes and personal style.
