8 Style Tips: How To Wear Fishnet Stockings
Fishnet stockings have been on the scene for a while now. However, wearing them can still be a little intimidating. It doesn't have to be, though. Wearing a pair of fishnets can be as natural as wearing a pair of jeans if you know what to do. That's why, in this article, we are going to take a look at some simple tips on how to wear fishnet stockings.
1. Wear fishnets with distressed jeans or shorts
Nothing says you are proud of your fishnets like letting them peek through. The best way to do this is to pair them with a pair of distressed jeans. If you want to show even more of them off, try a pair of distressed shorts. A pair like these would stand out with a pair of distressed shorts best, since they feature a design going up the leg.
On the other hand, you only need a plain pair like these to wear with distressed jeans. Since only parts of the fishnets will show, you don't need to worry about designs or anything fancy.
2. Opt for white or colored stockings to stand out
Nothing says fun quite like breaking away from the norm. Black fishnet stockings are nearly everyone's go to but they don't have to be. You can pull out a pair of white stockings, pastel stockings, or even neon stockings to wear with your next outfit.
Neon stockings can be a great choice for a party or music festival because it takes a fun look at an idea that's been around for a while. That isn't to say anything against black stockings, it is just fun sometimes to take a look up a notch with a little color. Even white stockings give a bright flash compared to black. You could even tie dye your stockings if you want to get extra creative.
3. Try pairing fishnets with some funky flats
When we think of fishnets, we often think of boots and sexy heels. However, you can soften the look with a pair of flats. A pair of stockings like these matched with the right flats can have a cute, innocent look paired with a sundress for example.
Stockings don't have to look edgy or sexy, sometimes they can look soft and add texture to a look. So, if you want to rock a pair of stockings but aren't sure you want the edge that a pair of stockings brings, don't freak out. The right combination of clothing is out there to make your stocking dreams come true.
4. Try knee high boots with your outfit
On the other hand, sometimes you want a little edge. Consider a look like these stockings and a pair of knee high boots. The stockings would peek out right over the top, flashing between your boots and shorts or skirt. Sounds sexy, doesn't it?
The look is easy to pull off so don't be intimidated. All you need is the boots, the stockings, and a little bit of confidence. This is perfect for everyday wear or even a night on the town. Being as versatile as it is, it is easy to keep this idea tucked away in your closet, ready to go at a moment's notice.
5. Don't be afraid to play with patterns
When we think of fishnets, many of us think of the cliche of stockings with uniform holes in them. However, fashion design is decades beyond this idea. Now you can find stockings with patterns and even ones with different patterns in the holes of the stockings themselves. The possibilities are nearly endless.
These patterns aren't something to be afraid of either. Try a new design! Break away from the same old, same old design that you've been doing for years and trade it in for something fresh and new. Pair it with some shorts or a skirt to show off the design to passerby. It can be intimidating to try something new but you won't regret it.
6. Show Off That Fitted Skirt
If you're a fan of fitted skirts, you'll probably love this option. Fishnets work well with fitted skirts, as the textures are able to play off of each other. While this may not be a great option for an office setting, a fitted skirt and fishnets are the perfect combination for your next night out on the town.
7. Pair With A Leather Jacket
If you're of the persuasion to own a leather coat, this is the perfect situation to which to wear it. A well made leather jacket has a timeless, classy quality, and it plays well with a pair of fishnet stockings. The contrast between classy leather jacket and sexy fishnets is perfect for a woman who wants to assert herself on a night out. You'll be radiating confidence and those around you will surely notice.
8. Pull out those leather boots
This tip is similar to the aforementioned tip about leather jackets. Leather boots are versatile, and can be worn with casual or fancy clothing. Pairing fishnets with leather boots gives a little edge to any outfit, completing a look easily. You may also find this look fun during the winter, when a pair of boots will keep your feet warm and toasty.
Whatever your style taste may be, fishnets can be an excellent addition to your wardrobe. These garments are perfect for any occasion because they add a bit of extra flair to the outfit. Fishnets are extremely versatile, and can be paired with a variety of shoe styles, pants, and dresses. You can try different colors and textures until you find the fishnets that fit your style best. Don't be afraid to rock fishnets on your next night out on the town. You'll feel confident, and those around you will wonder how your outfit looks so good.
