Oh la la, fishnets! I’ll admit, I wasn’t immediately drawn to the trend when I saw it on street style stars and celebrities alike last fall. I didn’t hate it, it just didn’t do anything for me. Since I’ve been trying to add a little oomph to my everyday denim looks, I thought the barely-there stockings look was worth I try. When these arrived in the mail, I opened the package and showed Tyler. He immediately stuck them on his head and demanded my money. Robber jokes aside, he didn’t question the denim x fishnet combo, so I thought it must have looked somewhat decent. 


Here’s 5 tips to tackling the fishnet tights trend:

  1. Budget: You don’t need to splurge! I haven’t found a ton of fashion options online yet, but they’re definitely out there in all price ranges. I found affordable ones on Amazon and TopShop (these are only $6!).
  2. Denim: Pair them with relaxed denim, like boyfriend jeans. The sultry meets masculine feel gives off all the vibez—also, it’ll feel way less restricting than layering them under skinny jeans. 
  3. Length: Show off your fishnets with overly distressed jeans or cropped hems, like kick-flares or step-hems.
  4. Tops: Keep the rest of your look simple so the pieces in your outfit don’t compete with each other. I went with a solid off-the-shoulder top with a bell-sleeve. Next time, I think I’ll try this look with a button-up shirt or plain tee. 
  5. Shoes: I know some say you can wear tights with open-toe shoes, but I haven’t gotten quite there yet. I really like the look of fishnets with closed-toe mules, booties, and sneakers.
