If you haven’t already heard the news, let us fill you in: fishnet tights are the look of the moment (and as you can probably guess, we are totally onboard). Fashionistas everywhere are picking up on this trend, so now’s your cue to hurry up and start rocking this edgy style for yourself!
Fishnet tights started gaining steam again this past fall, and the trend has only gotten more popular from there (although, of course, fishnets have always had a special place in our hearts). Celebs and bloggers have lately been experimenting with different ways to show off this slightly risqué style, and we love it (but come on, let’s face it, Rachel’s girls love it anytime a pair of tights is at the centre of a major fashion trend).
It is true though that rocking fishnets can be daunting. They aren’t everyone’s go-to tights style. Fear not—we’re here to make it easy for you. Here are a few of our favourite looks-of-the-moment starring fishnet tights.
Under ripped jeans
Of all the fishnet looks that are gracing our favourite blogs and Instagram accounts, this is has got to be the most popular (and the best option for a fishnet newbie looking for a subtle way to start rocking this style of tights). Break out your favourite ripped denim and layer on top of your fishnets for a head-turning peek-a-boo effect. It also has the added bonus of keeping you a little warmer on a day when you want to wear tights, but the temperature is a little lower.
Under a sweet dress
It’s a brilliant fashion combination when sweet meets edgy. Pair your fishnet tights with a pretty-patterned t-shirt dress or a baby doll for a look that says, “I’m adorable, but don’t mess with me.”
Fishnet tights peeking out above your jeans
All you need to rock this grungy/sexy option is your favourite jeans and an ounce of confidence. The looks works best with a loose-fitting cropped top.
The fishnet has a place in everyone’s closet. Have a dress code to keep at the office? No problem. Wear your fishnet tights under a pair of tailored pants and let them show at the ankle with a pair of smart flats or heels. It’s an unexpected touch that adds a ton of visual interest to your look.
With combat boots
Of course, once you get comfortable trying fishnets a variety of ways, you’d better go all out and let your inner rock chick break free. With a pair of distressed denim shorts and combat boots, you can’t lose.
So, what’s stopping you? It’s time to take this look and run with it. How will you style your fishnet tights?
