Fashion File: The Fishnet Tights Trend

Thoughts on the fishnet tights trend? This edgy (and can we say badass?) trend is going strong and lately you can see lots of cool girls wearing fishnet tights under ripped jeans. I have a feeling this is a trend that will take time to trickle down as in my opinion, is very fashion forward, intimidating and tricky to pull off. If you go with a large scale fishnet then the look is not quite stylish but rather punk and depending how you pair it can be borderline trashy, but if you sport the right one (like a micro pair) then it can look quite cool. I can definitely see how this trend will be interpreted and applied to other garments like this top and this dress and there’s no doubt that the easy way to step into it is with a pair of these to test the waters (I particularly like the look with loafers and raw hem denim). Here are some looks I love for inspiration:
