    In the summer, I like to wear shorts and skirts and stuff, but usually my legs are so milky white, even after applications of holiday skin lotion and stuff.
    I'm just wondering, would I still get a tan on my legs if I wore skin coloured tights instead of black/coloured ones?

    Use fake tan. It has bad PR but it's a good thing.

    Well...I don't really know the science behind it but i'm sure UV rays would be able to make their way through skin coloured tights as the denier is so low. However, the best thing to do is fake tan until they just look a NORMAL skin colour (don't go dark tanned; nothing looks worse than a pale body and miraculously tanned legs) then slap on a sun cream, get your legs out and lessen the spf until you have a tan

    Nothing worse than the clear tights, so obvious you're wearing them.

    Just invest in fake tan not the rubbish holiday skin.
