Named for the object they resemble; fishnet tights are iconic for their diamond aesthetic. Sought after for their ability to make the leg appear bare while remaining covered, they’ve been popular since the early 1920s. Thin, but durable, there, but not there, fishnets are a style staple. If fishnets aren’t for you then try our more traditional sheer tights.
MICRO TO MEGANET
Fishnet tights come in all shapes and sizes, from micronet to mega fishnets, appropriately called whalenet tights. Larger net tights are perfect if you like to make an impression from afar. Smaller diamonds, on the other hand, are a daintier interpretation of the fishnet trend; inherently less noticeable, they are perfect for those first looking to experiment with the trend.
The ability to wear them with leggings and dresses makes fishnets incredibly easy to style! For a night on the town, wear your fishnets with your little black dress and heels or under a black leather skirt to perfectly emulate that cool girl vibe. For during the day, wearing your fishnets under your jeans so that they are visible above the waist and at the ankles is a subtler approach. It’s best to always wear your fishnets with a closed-toe shoe, be it a heel or a trainer.
COLOURS OF FISHNETS
Black fishnets are the punk girl staple. Classic and cool, they speak for themselves. Nude fishnet tights are a great alternative for pulling off the same look more discreetly. Star performers often wear nude fishnets as they manage to be simultaneously stylish and simple. To transform your tights into a fashion statement, layer them over a pair of forest green or ruby red opaque tights to create a look of your own!
