Your Fashion-Friendly Guide to Wearing Fishnets

When we talk about tights season, fishnets aren't exactly what we mean. But, boudoir, punk or however you choose to categorise them, fishnet tights and socks have been popping up on the legs of many a street style star in the past months.

While they won't exactly keep you warm in the same way wool hosiery might, there's an anything-goes appeal about the style. Pair with a bohemian dress and they're a little romantic, style under jeans and it adds just the right amount of edge. They're the accessory that can seamlessly add a little something extra to your outfit. And since they come in an array of styles—from high to low, and micro- to wide-weave, there are plenty of exciting ways to try fishnet tights out for yourself, no matter how you describe your own style. 

Read on to see how street style stars have been wearing fishnets, and then shop a few of our favourite styles!
