A navy blue lace cocktail dress sounds awesome! Actually you can wear neutral, sheer navy or sheer black hose with your navy blue lace dress. Colored hosiery for dressy situations needs to be very sheer. Since the dress is mid-calf you are probably a tall woman. When deciding what stocking color to wear with your cocktail dress take your height into consideration. If you are very tall neutral color hose will be very stylish with your navy blue dress and navy shoes. If you are on the shorter side very sheer black hose would look more chic than navy hose (Navy hose will look too matchy, matchy.) with your navy dress and shoes and you will appear a little taller.
When to Wear Neutral Color Sheers
Whether it’s a luncheon, party, wedding or dinner dance many women are still confused about when to wear sheer hosiery / sheer stockings. Common sense says to make the right style choice women need to consider the weather, their age, what they are wearing (skirt or pants), type of footwear and where they are going, a casual or more formal venue.
