Should You Wear Tights With a Dressy Dress?

I had a customer in last night looking for a dressy dress for a formal Christmas party. We tried several from Clara Sun Woo. Because of the light weight slinky fabric, my customer was concerned about being cold. She asked if it would be appropriate to wear tights with these types of dresses. I advised her against it, feeling tights would dress down the outfit, making it more casual rather than dressy. I suggested she wear nylons instead. Any kind of tight that would provide warmth would be, in my opinion, too think for this dress. Worse yet, the dress fabric would more than likely stick to the tights causing it to ride up all night long. What do you think? Did I give her good advice?
