How to wear fishnets for a bold fashion look. Fishnet stockings have long been associated with allure and seduction. As rock and roll took over the 70s, fishnets became associated with denim, leather and heavy metal.
Since 2017, fishnet stockings and socks have taken on a modern persona and have re-emerged on the fashion scene, appearing on the catwalks of Jeremy Scott and Lanvin.
Fishnets are the perfect accessory to help you express your individuality and style so read on for some fashion inspiration.
Fishnets with a Knee-Length Coat
Just because the cold weather is coming, it doesn’t mean you can’t wear fishnets. Draw attention to your legs by wearing a long coat with a shorter dress or skirt and top. A tighter, close knitted style of fishnet stockings will compliment your look this winter by not bearing too much skin.
Complete your outfit with chunky, black boots, perfect for walking the streets in confidence.
Fishnets with Colour Blocking
One of the best ways to reinvent your style is to experiment with fishnets and colour blocking. The colours don’t always have to be bright for you to nail this look. The key to this look is to focus on one colour and match its various shades.
Try a satin coat with matching skirt and crop top, add some fishnets and you will turn heads.
Fishnets with Leather Skirts
Take a note from the punk era of the 70s and bring fishnets and leather together again. For a modern and stylish look, wear your fishnets with your favourite leather skirt and balance your outfit with a high-neck jumper.
Fishnets with Denim Jeans
Denim jeans are a classic fashion staple that everyone has in their wardrobes. However, it can be hard to find new ways to style them. For a fresh and edgy look, wear a pair of distressed jeans with some fishnet stockings.
If you’re going to wear fishnets with jeans, it’s important to make sure they are visible. Roll up your hems or wear a tight, crop top to show off your midriff.
Finish the look with an eye-catching leather jacket.
Fishnets with a Side-Slit Skirt
When it comes to wearing fishnets, the key is balance. If you want to combine sophistication with seduction, wear your fishnets with a long, side-slit skirt to show off your legs. To embody class and high fashion, balance your look with a modern shirt. Keep your palette neutral for a versatile outfit you can wear to dinner or to the office.
Complete your look with a pop of colour using a bright bag or accessories.
