We're Flipping For Fishnets: 14 Ways To Wear Them

Fishnets have come a long way since the ’90s, taking on new forms such as tops and shoes. Maybe the rebellious accessory has crossed your mind before, but you haven’t figured out how to wear them without feeling tacky. Well, here are 14 inventive ways to incorporate fishnets into your go-to outfits and give your wardrobe a sassy edge.


Wide Fishnet Tights

One of the biggest trends for fall will be wearing fishnet tights under distressed denim. Grab your favorite pair of ripped jeans and let some oversize fishnet tights peek through the holes, like Princess Polly and Culture With Coco did. Finish the look with sleek booties or heels for the perfect balance between refined and edgy.

For a more subtle look, try fishnet tights with smaller holes. These look great under a denim or leather miniskirt with thigh high boots. Or check out how Amber from Every Once in a Style paired her fishnet tights with a long sleeve sweater and booties.
