Fishnets are probably one of those accessories you’ve pondered, only to land on an “I could never pull that off” verdict. They were a huge thing last fall and they now became the perfect layer for your transition to spring outfits.
Embraced by performers, dancers and showgirls, whenever fishnets had a “moment” in fashion, they were typically worn to amp up the sex appeal by stereotypically rebellious (read: fun) women. From the pin-ups of the ’50s to the ripped fishnets of the ’70s punk era to every young woman who ever idolized Madonna, the hosiery has always come with little side-eye from the prude — and major celebration from women owning their sexuality.
There are a few ways you can approach fishnet tights: One route is to look at them as an add-on or an accessory, letting them peek out from under the holes your jeans, or showing a few inches of fishnet just above your pants’ waistband. I’m also a huge fan of the fishnet tops making an appearance in spring collections. You can wear them as a layer under dresses, or on top of basic cotton t-shirts to create a perfect spring look. The other way to do it is to let them be your focal point; keep the punk vibes strong and show them off with miniskirts, heavy boots, and patterned outerwear for an outfit that’s sure to turn heads every damn time.
