Q: Is it ok to wear sheer black pantyhose with an above-the-knee black cocktail dress?
A: Depending on the occasion, it may or may not be necessary to pair your cocktail dress with pantyhose.
Rule of thumb? The dressier the occasion, the more necessary it is to wear pantyhose.
But to answer your question, it is OK to wear sheer black pantyhose with an above-the-knee black cocktail dress. In fact, the head-to-toe black ensemble will visually elongate your body, making you look taller and thinner. And dark colored pantyhose does wonders in making your legs look slimmer.
With regards to shoes, just make sure that the shoes are closed-toe if you’re wearing pantyhose.
