Fishnets have always symbolized taking a bit of a fashion risk. If you ask your mom or grandma about fishnets, you’ll probably get a flustered or embarrassed response. Fishnets have always been considered somewhat sexually suggestive, something worn behind closed doors, and in later years, specifically, the 90s, fishnets became punk-meets-goth, and still, quite overt. But isn’t that how fashion works? It takes a risky fashion move and morphs it into a trend?
Just look around, scroll through Instagram, peek at the pictures from fashion weeks around the world, and you’ll see the resounding trend. Fishnets are back, and they’re everywhere. Whether it’s a pair of fishnet tights paired with a skirt or worn under jeans (Oh yeah, you read that right! Just scroll down to see the trend in action and how to wear them); or delicate fishnet ankle socks worn with sandals or heels, the style is gaining traction. Just pulling this post together, I totally talked myself into a pair of adorable fishnet socks. #bloghazard
And if you’re hunting for a new pair, the consensus seems to be that everyone’s favorite fishnet tights are from ASOS, and I’m partial to these large hole fishnet tights, though I love the selection at Nordstrom too, and here are a few adorable pairs of fishnet socks in case you’re really feeling inspired.
