A pair of boots, some thick tights and a warm cardi turn just about any dress into a winter dress. I have only 1 dress I'm not sure I could pull off in the winter. I'm loving my fleece lined tights atm paired with bodycon or fit and flare style dresses.

I like to wear my short summer dresses like tunics - with trousers

Now I still ride my motorbike, so I need extra layers and I end up with having solid colour longsleeves under anything

I just got a pair of blue tights. I never buy colored bottoms but inspired by this thread and some fashion blogs, I got them to go with a black dress I have. Now I just need to knit up some spats/leg warmers.

Yay for colourful tights! I only have purple and dark red atm. I wish primark did more fun colours in their fleece lined ones. I really want some teal tights, but all the ones I've seen are too thin so look a funny colour when you see my pale legs through them.

Help! I'm always confused by the different terms. I thought panty-hose and nylons were the same and sheer or opaque, and tights were thicker and with or without the feet parts and not sheer?

I have no idea about any of those terms! It seems a lot more complicated in America! Here in general anything where the two legs are joined together at the crotch are tights and anything where the two legs are separate and need something to hold them up (suspenders or hold ups) are stockings.

The term pantyhose always makes my immature side laugh! You can get 'footless tights' here (the thick ones are practically leggings), but I don't think you could have footless stockings, they would just be leg warmers!
