The Fishnet Challenge

9:54 PM Imke Db 26 Comments

As you might know by now, I'm all about breaking the so-called fashion rules, as you could also read in this recent post about how to combine block heels, velvet & a turtleneck. I already mentioned to you in this post that I love fishnet tights, even though they are perceived as either grungy, either slutty, and I'm neither of them, but I still love them. Many among you told me they loved the style,  but couldn't figure out how to adapt them to your wardrobe, or simply said to be sure they wouldn't look good on you. 

Ladies, you don't know until you try, and I'm sure you too can find a way to adapt the fishnet stockings to your closet, and make it work with your style, whether you're classy, girly, tom-boy, grungy, minimalist, edgy or provocative style-wise. In my opinion, there's always a way, and today I'm showing you mine. I combined my fishnet tights with a comfortable woolen dress in blue marine and little silver details, which is slightly over-sized, and put on velvet high heels to keep the look a bit more business-like. Over it my favourite camel coat, and the grungyness of the fishnet tights is completely toned down, while still giving a certain edgy vibe to this look. 

What do you think of the way I wear my fishnet tights? How would you (or do you!) combine them? And do you love these new heels I got off Asos as much as I do? Let me know in the comments. 

A special thank you note goes to my friend and fellow blogger Gwladys from who took these amazing pictures - not only a great photographer but also a fashion blogger who just started blogging. Check it out!

  16. Thanks for the comments and love the post


  17. You look stunning! Actually, I don't really find fishnet stockings as grungy or slutty, personally I think it really depends on how you styled it :)


  18. Oh Dear, you did this perfectly! I think the key to making fishnet tights suitable for everyday wear is balance, which I think means keeping the rest elegant and modest. The woolend dress with no cleveage is perfect for that, because it's not considered as particularly sexy, and so is the classic camel coat. And the fact that you're wearing a subtle makeup and just a casual ponytail helped a lot, too. In this outfit I could even go to my uni classes :)

  19. The post is so great! I love the pictures:)

  20. Ik ben net zo voor netkousen maar deze outfit is echt klassevol. Knap gedaan.
