How to: Wear fishnets

Nailing the fishnet trend is fairly simple, as long as you own it, you're almost definitely going to be able to pull it off.

I started wearing fishnets with jeans about a year ago and I really loved how it looked and the statement it made. Since then, fishnets have grown to be a huge trend and many people love it. Who could blame them? I get that the fishnet trend isn't for everybody but, if it is for you then you're in the right place because I've compiled a little guide that's going to help you smash the fishnet trend.

I promise you, they are the ultimate fashion accessory.

This was the first outfit I EVER paired fishnets with and it's safe to say, I still really love it. I wanted my outfit to be quite simple but have a few statement pieces to give it an edge, those statement pieces are: fishnets, red leather jacket and a scrunchie on my wrist. I feel like the jacket and fishnets work really well together in getting the outfit to say what I wanted it to say. So, if you want to dress up a simple outfit I'd suggest throwing on some fishnets and a coloured jacket to really give it that pop.

The jacket I'm wearing in this was from a vintage store. The bodysuit is from New Look. My jeans are Joni jeans from Topshop. My shoes are Old Skool Vans.

I love, love, love this look. I still own everything in this picture apart from the boots, I lost them which makes me more sad than you know (haha). Again, fishnets really made this look and helped it come together. I love how much more the fishnets are exposed in this outfit, thanks to the huge rips in my jeans. I promise I didn't fall over if your Granddad asks. So, even if you only wear fishnets with jeans you can constantly switch up the style of jeans giving you a completely different look each time. As you can see, I've also got myself some super sparkly socks and I just love how they look with this outfit. You could have any socks you want with your outfit, they could be plain white or have cartoon characters. Whatever you choose, it will really give you that bit of umph.

My jeans are from Topshop as well as my socks. My shoes are from New Look.

Of course, there are plenty of other ways for you use fishnets. I once wore a huge levis shirt with fishnets tights and I really liked how it looked. There are also many different types of fishnet tights: smaller diamonds, bigger diamonds, sparkly, pink, yellow, white. So, even if black fishnets aren't your style please be assured that there are a pair of fishnets out there.

Thank you so much for reading! It's a bit of a shorter post because I've been so busy with work and life at the moment but it means I've got lots to write about for the future. I would love to hear your thoughts as well as your style tips for fishnets.

Anyway, I hope you have a lovely week and I will be back next Tuesday!
