How to Style Fishnets Like a Pro

As we predicted, the future of fashion is fishnet. Once owned by the punk, pinup, grunge and goth crowds, the diamond-patterned material reentered the fashion zeitgeist by way of the Fall 2016 runways. Antonio Marras favored shin-high fishnets, Max Mara went with classic cut-outs and Jeremy Scott made the case for XL diamonds. The eye-grabbing legwear quickly caught on with the fashion set, namely Lourdes Leon (whose mom is a noted fishnet advocate), and Sarah Snyder.
Fishnet adds edge to any outfit, whether it’s in sock, tights, shirt or even dress form. That’s right — not only is fishnet in the midst of a serious comeback, it’s taking on new, innovative forms. Don’t be daunted — the rebellious pattern (in all its iterations) is surprisingly easy to pull off. The more hesitant among us might start by pairing denim minis with fishnet tights. #Freethenipple advocates can jump right in and swap their sheer turtlenecks for tops of the diamond-net persuasion. As with any trend, you decide how far down the rabbit hole you go.
But first, some styling tips. 

What's "too much"? Team your fearless legwear with a miniskirt, neutral sweater and patterned outwear. Polish off the look with ladylike shoes and coordinating (metallic) socks.

Another (more wearable) suggestion: use grids to dress up a standard sneaker-dress combo.

Fishnet stockings add edge to any boho or slip dress. Finish off the ensemble with a white tee and oversized black blazer and let the 90s, punk and corporate vibes collide.

Worn as a statement sock, fishnets can add a touch of interest (sex appeal, rebelliousness) to an otherwise casual, menswear-inspired look. Extra points if the cuff matches your chunky combat boots, which, by the way, go great with 'nets. (Utilitarian footwear detracts from the pinup factor in a good way.)

Same principle, but with sandals, cropped pants and stockings.

Another option is to play up the pinup vibes with retro, high-waisted shorts. Of course, you'll still want to balance out your 'fit with a not-so-skin-showy topper and "boyish" accessories.

Denim stylist extraordinaire Sarah Snyder likes her holey hose peering out from beneath lace-up denim. 

Prefer your oversized tees and hoodies without a side of thigh-grazing boots? Here's a happy, eye-grabbing alternative.
