I stopped wearing pantyhose a long time ago. Living in Florida, there is no need to.
Last year, I attended a spring wedding in NY. I wore dressy strappy sandals, so no panty hose.
Here is my dilemma. My cousin is getting married this winter, probably in November, or possible in December, in NY.
It will probably be cold and I intend on buying a navy dress with bone, closed toe pumps.
Do I wear panty hose? It will be cold. I'm always tan now, so it's not because I have pasty white legs, but are people not wearing hose to weddings nowadays?? In the north.
You could wear those tight ass leggings.

By all means wear pantyhose, Hawk ...
For several reasons actually.
Your nicely tanned legs will quickly dry out due to lack of humidity and cold weather and could even become scaly looking. (dry skin) Be sure to keep skin lotion on them.
Also, if you wear short skirts of any kind, pantyhose always make your legs more attractive, especially silky sheer ones.
Besides the fact that everyone else from up north will be wearing them (those in dresses and not slacks) ... if you value your closed toe shoes, is not really a good idea to wear bare feet in them.
I always wear Hanes Silk Reflections in an off black color for fall and winter outfits and feel great in them.
And yes, in my 10 years of living in Florida, I wore panty hose only a few times for formal occasions.
Funny caution: Don't purchase pantyhose months ahead of time ... the humidity breaks down the waistband and makes them unwearable! Brand new, unopened pkgs included.
Not knowing the secret female meanings attached to such things, my advice would be to let the weather be your guide. Bring a pair that match the outfit, and if it's cold, wear them, if it's warm, don't.
Not appropriate for weddings and certainly not appropriate for a navy dress..fashion faux pas.
