Those are the options matching the tone of your skin and making it look smoother and softer. You should never opt for tights, which are toned darker than your skin even if you want to look tanned badly. The tone of you tights should be maximum close to the natural tone of your skin.

For a tight-fitting dress you should pick seamless tights in order to prevent the upper part from being visible underneath. For a business suit, the tone of the tights you choose should be neutral combined with natural texture of smooth, soft, and matte design. If you have picked a dress of a darker shade matching it with darker toned shoes, you should not wear transparent tights of the universal type we spoke about earlier.
