This trend came out of nowhere. I remember I saw it first on Kim Kardashian's IG. Even though I'm not the biggest fan, I can appreciate her as someone who isn't afraid to try new trends.
There's something super edgy about this trend, but there are ways to adjust it to your personal style. For example, last month I showed you how you can wear lace tights instead of fishnets if you are more romantic or girly.
But let's focus on fishnets today. I want to to give you some tips to take full advantage of the fun pair you purchase (which btw are under $10 in most sites...you all know how I love an affordable trend!).
The first thing you must take into consideration is what size of the net you feel must comfortable in. There are tiny tiny fishnets while others are quite big...I consider mine in the medium range. Being 100% honest, I got mine with my birthday costume and I thought I would never wear it again because I always thought they were costume...boy, I was WRONG!
Don't think about fishnets as an "added layer for warmth" (because they don't really keep you warm); think of them as a way to add texture and depth to any look. If you still want to try this trend for Summer, you can go for fishnet socks: just as fun and perfect with summer dresses or shorts!
TIPS ON HOW TO WEAR FISHNET TIGHTS:
- Show them off! They look so fun when they peek through ripped boyfriend jeans; it could be just a little rip in the knee or full-on ripped jeans like the ones I'm wearing. You can also wear them with non-ripped jeans but wear a cropped top and let the fishnet peek in the midriff OR on your ankles.
- When it comes to shoes, I especially love how they look with sneakers or boots- BUT I've seen some killer looks with pumps. I would keep the shoes closed (no sandals!) or a tiny tiny peep toe.
- For tops: have fun! I went for the rock&roll vibe with a rocker tee! The most important thing is that you feel comfortable and rock those fishnets like are part of you!
