I know, I know–fishnets are everywhere. And I’ll be honest, they’re getting a tad overplayed. But, I shot this look back in February and didn’t have time to blog about it until now. While I am growing tired of fishies under jeans (unless they’re supper baggie tattered jeans) I’m still feeling fishnets under pants in the form of sporty slacks, tuxedo trousers and joggers. It’s this unique balance of spray and trashy / sexy that seems to work well together. 

This look is a combination of all things that I love–it’s comfortable, it’s cool, and you can really go anywhere in it. I think I actually wore this look on Super Bowl Sunday. . . 

Another thing I’ve been digging as of late is the unbuttoned button down, buttoning only the top two and letting the rest of the shirt billow free. There’s something about a peek of midriff that feminizes the outfit. It also shows off the exposed band of the fishnets, which is a fun little surprise. 

On a different note, I hope you all have been following my travels over on my Instagram! In the past two months I’ve visited NYC, London, Cuba, Dubai, Santa Barbara and Palm Springs for Coachella. To say it’s been a whirlwind is an understatement, but I’ve also grown behind on my blogging. It’s also pushed me to really evaluate what I like creating and what you guys like reading. Are you still into seeing outfit posts? Or do you enjoy areas like beauty or travel more? Or perhaps, just more of a mix? Let me know in the comments below 🙂

The fishnets trend has taken over, and one of my favorite ways to wear the look is layering them underneath a pair of ripped jeans. I love exposed fishnets ripped jeans and like how the fishnets peek out at the knees and the thighs, and are exposed a tiny bit at the waist. If you would have told me I would be wearing fishnets hanging out from my jeans  last year, I wouldn’t have believed it! But there is something so fun and undeniably punk about wearing fishnets ripped jeans, skirts, tights… and they look irreverent and cool.

The thing I like about this outfit is the balance. The bottom has attitude while the top exudes polish by way of a beret and blazer. Sporty-meets-spice-meets a little bit of downtown–throw in a French flag and you’ve got the whole look. Like what you see?

A LESSON IN COOL: HOW TO PULL OFF FISHNETS TREND

The fishnets trend, easily the most popular look in fashion right now–here’s how to wear it.

Brace yourself, because you’re going to start seeing a whole lot of the fishnets trend on the blog and on Instagram! I’ve been wanting to give these bad boys a go, and I finally bit the bullet a few weeks ago and haven’t looked back. I have somewhat of an obsessive personality–when I get into something, I become obsessed and keep eating / wearing / doing it until I’m over it. And right now, I’m very into the fishnets trend. And it’s easy to see why, right? They’re cool, unexpected, and provide a little bit of warmth. Okay, scratch that last thought, they provide zero warmth but who cares when you look cool?

As I mentioned in my last beauty post on 1980s makeup, I have been on an ’80s kick, and this look is no exception. I channeled a bit of Madonna and Brooke Shields to create a modern redintion of a classic ’80s outfit. Yes please to acid wash(ish) jeans, fishnets, and big hair and earrings. Like what you see? There’s lots more where that came from to shop below! And did I mention these tights were less than $10 right here? Yeah…
