Fishnets : The Must Have Trend!

Fishnets are BACK IN STYLE! For many Fishnets are a love or hate style but recently this classic hosiery look has most definitely been feeling the love. They’re enjoying a moment in the spotlight, becoming a popular choice for woman’s fashion from tights and socks to full body stockings!

Screen Shot 2017-02-16 at 16.37.13.pngA staple for the runway this season and loved by fashpack and celebrities, fishnets offer an  easy way to make a plain outfit visually striking and ultimately sexy. Walking right off the catwalk into super hip street style, the fishnet look has been adapted to suit a whole range of looks. Kendall, Gigi and more of fashions PYT’s have been sporting nets under denim look that, aside from highlighting their model figure, adds a sexy rebel edge to ripped jeans.

The full body fishnet is a bold look, which can give an elegant edge to your day-to-day wear or a quirky, rock and roll feel to casual outfits. The key, as with many fashion styles, is to keep it simple. Less is more.. so the less you show, the more effective. Think an inch above your jeans waistband or just the neck and calves under a wrap dress – as seen on runway below.

 

Of course, fishnets will always have a hot, sexy finish and are the perfect addition to evening wear, giving your LBD some extra vavavoom. If you’ve ever shied away from adding sassy nets to your party looks before, now is the chance to get them out! Seen below on Kendall Jenner, who added fishnet hold ups to her party frock.

Spotted on the catwalk at Jenny Peckham who added nude medium nets to give her feminine satin and fur designs some grit. Whilst Philip Lim added black oversized net tops for texture and pattern to earthy tones.

 

Fishnet’s themselves are now available in a huge range of designs from small micronets to large diamond patterns, in classic black, delicate nudes, crazy neons or sassy red.

Nude fishnets are particularly popular for pop icons such as Beyonce, Katy Perry and Little Mix who want the leg perfecting finish of hosiery with the cool and quirky finish of fishnets rather than sheer pantyhose.

For the classic fishnet look we’d recommend Jonathan Aston Fishnet Tights or Pamela Mann Nets which are available up to XXXL. For the high fashion wide net try Trasparenze’s new season Edera Fishnet Tights which are available in Nude or Black or Gipsy’s Medium Fishnet Tights.

If you’re feeling brave, Miss O’s fishnet Bodystocking is beautifully soft with lovely details such as finger loops.

Be bold, be brave, be bad – Fishnets are catch of the day, you don’t want to be seen without them!

‘Virtually Indestructible’ Wolford Tights

Charlotte Eagar – a former war reporter revealed her love for Wolford Matt Opaque tights in The Sunday Times and we couldn’t agree more.

Screen Shot 2017-02-01 at 09.38.53.png

‘They are not only flattering and warm but virtually indestructible’ she said. Eagar told the Sunday times that she still has two pairs of brown Wolford tights in her wardrobe from 1996 that she will happily wear in an emergency.

Wolford is a high quality brand that provides durable, easy to wear tights that are both comfortable and convenient. Coming in a range of styles and colours that suit everyone – they will never make you feel ‘too fat or too old’ Eagar said. ‘These are the tights fashion editors actually wear’ and matt black tights will never go out of trend so they are the perfect purchase.

We love these styles for a smooth, even finish that feel pure luxury to wear. Plus they last a lifetime, wash after wash.

Join The Fishnet Frenzy this Winter

Fishnet tights are a timeless fashion piece that is regularly seen on the catwalk and fashion icons. According to The Times the sale of these tights has increased by 35 per cent in 2016, so are fishnets coming back into mainstream fashion this Autumn/Winter? We think so!

You might be thinking that incorporating fishnets into your everyday style is a difficult task, but we have some style tips for clever ways to get nets into your look.

Try layering your fishnets under ripped jeans. This is a trend that has been blowing up on social media and we think that it is a fabulous idea, giving an edge to your every day look and giving an alternative twist to the on trend ripped denim look. They can also be worn under ¾ lengths, as shown by Alex Chung and Gwen Stefani – a look that will be huge this AW and SS17.

For those who want to be part of the trend but are worried that fishnets are too attention grabbing, we suggest a micronets or nude fishnets as a sophisticated look or for a playful look try wide fishnets with flat boots.

Adding fishnets to a plain dress or skirt can give a remarkable finish that will make your look ever more glamorous. Alex Chung shows how to work this style with a black dress, whereas Kate Moss demonstrates fishnets in casual wear.

Subsequently, our final tip is to just show a flash above knee high boots – a la Cara Delevingne. A nod to hosiery’s hottest look without going all out. This is also perfect if you’re not keen on flashing too much thigh but love this seasons Over The Knee Boots.

If you find opaques are draining your look and it’s too chilly for bare legs – fishnets are a wonderful way to electrify your outfit at this time of year.

Win A Pair of Oroblu Velour Leggings!

Velour leggings have a fabulously luxurious finish, soft and comfortable to wear but with a gleaming lusciousness that can give your winter wardrobe a boost. For a formal or party look it seems the go to choice is monochrome – black velour leggings and a crisp white blouse with delicate heels gives a powerful, sophisticated look. For a night out we suggest a flowing sparkly blouse or get snuggled up with knit wear for a casual look.

Halloween !!!

It’s October and therefore time to plan your outfit for this years Halloween party! We know it’s difficult to decide what to dress up as and even more difficult to put together a costume to wear, but don’t worry because we have some fabulous ideas from our new range of spooktacular hosiery to help you dress to impress for this years day of the dead.

Our first suggestion is an exciting outfit from this year’s film release of ‘Suicide Squad’. Since the films publication, the joker’s well-known crazy yet sexy assistant played by Margot Robbie has been a popular idea for this Halloween.

 

Harley Quinn wears fishnet tights with her ripped t-shirt, hot pants and lethal weapons. This costume will scare and seduce this Halloween.

However if you would prefer to keep warm whilst you strut your stuff, some lavish leather like cat woman would be perfect for you.

Impress your friends with some leather look leggings! You will look the part whilst still feeling comfortable so you can party all night long. For catwoman some leggings, a mask, a tight black top and some cat ears will be a flawless finish to your hot Halloween wear.

 

A classic favourite is the vampire costume; improve your outfit in 2016 with some glamorous gothic cross tights. These are sure to add some charm to the Dracula look. They are also a great look for those considering dressing up as a member of the Addams family, wearing a gothic dress with these tights will spice up your costume this Halloween. We recommend adding a shirt collar for an authentic Wednesday Addams costume.

Our final suggestion is wearing some stripes for a terrifying, yet extravagant witch. Add some excitement to this Halloween classic with vertical striped tights, ribbon wrap or pinstripe, you are bound to stand out from the crowd.

We have a wonderful selection of Halloween Hosiery at TheTightSpot UK, from spooky stockings to haunted hold ups
