Last week’s Why Wednesday (which you can check out here) talked about why you don’t need to follow trends to be stylish but it should have included a disclaimer that excluded fishnets. You NEED fishnets. I NEED fishnets. We all NEED fishnets. Okay, maybe I’m being a little dramatic but I love love love fishnets which is why this weeks #TrendyThursday is Fishnets and Denim.
I started out my academic career at an Episcopalian school that had a dress code. I was always getting in trouble for wearing ‘seductive’ stockings with my uniform. I wasn’t trying to be seductive. Something about sexy stockings just did it for me, even back before I really knew what sexy was. I just knew these laced and netted stockings that I adored so much added something so strong yet feminine to an outfit and I loved it.
Fishnets and denim is a trend that I stand behind. There are a million ways I’d style the trend but my favorite is ripped denim and a crop top. I don’t usually do grunge so the fishnets add a sexy feminine vibe to the ripped jeans. I really like this look for a day-date which is where I decided to wear it. Mike and I took Myla (our pup) to the dog park and then we grabbed some lunch. My goal was to be casual and comfy but sexy.
For this look, I wanted a completely casual outfit to contrast the dark sexy fistnets. What’s more casual than ripped denim and a white tee? I grabbed my holiest pair of jeans and my go to long sleeve cotton crop top with some espadrilles because I was craving spring but these white sneakers would have been another awesome option. I finished the look with a gold choker and my favorite Gucci belt (closet staple).
How do you like to wear your fishnets and denim? Let’s talk about it in the comments below.
