A Beginner’s Guide to This Hot Trend
Yes we know, they can look trashy but they are arguably the least expensive accessory you can add to your outfit for maximum impact. Fishnets are like garlic, they will miraculously improve any dish, but only if used properly! Too much and it overpowers, too little and there is no impact.
The good news is that fishnets come in a variety of styles, for those shy girls out there. They can also be introduced to your outfit in a number of ways, depending on how much ‘kapow’ you desire.
Not So Sexy
It’s important to point out that there are many kinds of fishnets and not all of them look trashy. The general rule is that the more diamond the shape of the ‘hole’, the finer the ‘line’ and the stronger the contrast between skin and tights the more trashy.
Which means that fishnets that are a tighter weave, come in different shapes and prints and are more opaque in color are not trashy! They actually serve to add interest to an outfit, with these sorts of tights you can afford to show a lot of leg or tights…
If you love the original fishnet, you might want to curb your enthusiasm.. These fishnets are best worn under denim, with the tights peeking out from distressed denim holes and more recently the top of your denim waistline also. You can of course wear these tights with sandals as well.
Just a Little
It’s not just full length tights that come in fishnets, there are knee highs and anklet tights as well. There add a school girl innocence to this raunchy trend. Another interesting style is to wear socks or sock boots on top of the full length tights, this concept is more original than the traditional ‘short skirt and leather boots with tights peeking out’ look.
