Black with black stockings is the thing to do.
If the dress is like that, I'd probably get cuban-heeled (or not) seamed stocking tbh. Totally sexy, but not OTT. You can get some slightly fancier seams... thing is, they're a b*tch to put on because you have to seriously work at making sure the seams are straight.
Black tights with black dresses are everywhere...
