Whether you hate it or love it, you just can’t deny fishnet tights are so in trend these days.
Many people just don’t understand the point of the impractical fishnet tights.
In the past, fishnet tights symbolized womanliness and their identity.
Sadly these days, fishnet tights are closely linked to trashy inelegant looks.
Actually, you can wear fishnet tights in a classy and high fashion way! All you need to do is pay attention to the designs and clothes pairing!
So ladies, here are the 9 tips and ideas if you wonder how to wear fishnet tights without looking trashy, enjoy!
1. OPT FOR THE MICRO-SIZED FISHNET FOR A POLISHED LOOK
If you want to look classy in fishnet tights, opting for the micro-sized fishnet is a no-brainer.
For the oversized fishnet tights, it’s just really easy to look sexy as you are exploding your legs out.
However, the smaller the fishnet, the more coverage you get.
If you are wearing the micro-sized one, people can’t even tell you are wearing a fishnet at all because all they see are sheer black tights from far.
Another big plus is that a small-size fishnet always flatters your leg more and makes it look slim and long.
Vice versa, the big diamond pattern, it’s going to exaggerate your leg and make you look clumsy sometimes.
So ladies, when in doubt, go for the micro-sized fishnet tights!
2. PAIR WITH SHORT FISHNET SOCKS
Another beginner tip is to try pairing it with the short fishnet socks first.
Instead of wearing the diamond shapes the whole leg and feeling exposed, wearing the socks version will certainly make you feel less overwhelmed.
Plus, we can create a wide range of distinctive looks with different shoe pairings.
My favorite look is pairing the socks with my black heels. Whenever I wear this combination, I always receive compliments and people always thought the fishnet pattern is part of the “boots” design!
Fishnet socks these days are present in more casual forms with different lovely colors and I know there is even a version with a ribbon!
Pair the socks with the white sneakers and you will get one of the cutest, youthful looks!
3. WEAR WHITE OR BEIGE FISHNET TIGHTS FOR A REFRESHING LOOK
If black is too sophisticated and feminine for you, consider wearing white or beige fishnet tights because it is absolutely refreshing!
I personally love white so much as I always feel like white can easily dress up clothes and make them look more high fashion.
One of the no-fail ways to wear a white fishnet tight is to embrace the monochrome styling.
You can wear a cream oversized hoodie dress, the white fishnet tight, and add a pair of nice beige boots to complete the look.
With similar tints of color, your body will visually look taller and that can also balance out the exaggerated effect of the white color.
If you want to look simple, stylish yet refreshing, this is the look!
4. GET CREATIVE WITH DIFFERENT FISHNET PATTERNS
While the signature fishnet tights are diamond-shaped knit, you can always feel free to explore different fishnet patterns out there!
Sometimes we may think the classic fishnet tights look a bit aggressive and that’s because it’s made with straight-lining.
If you opt for other designs like fan patterns or oval, it’s way easier to look soft and elegant with these pairs!
If you wonder where can you find these creative patterns, Wolford and Calzedonia always get some high-quality pairs!
5. TRY OUT THE PRINTED FISHNET TIGHT TO ADD SUBTLENESS
If you really love the diamond-shaped design, try out printed fishnet tight is another great idea!
Not only this is comfortable to wear, but you also don’t have to explode your legs out and that just makes the whole outfit looks more decent and even formal.
I am pretty sure you can wear a printed tight with a pencil dress for work!
6. PAIR FISHNET TIGHT WITH ELEGANT SHOE TYPES
Let’s talk about the shoes as they can truly affect how the outfit presents.
I will always pick closed-toe shoe with elegant or neutral designs.
Some of my favorites are Mary Janes, loafers, and oxford shoes. I don’t often wear shoes as I think they are too formal for me.
But to my surprise, if I pair the fishnet tights, they just become way more stylish and that’s just perfectly on point.
As fishnet tights are already feminine, high heels sometimes may not be the best idea.
Vice versa, pairing with neutral shoes can instantly balance out the vibes and make the whole outfit looks more approachable.
Of course, you can pair it with sneakers or pointed flats for a casual chic look as well.
7. PAIR FISHNET TIGHT WITH OVER-THE-KNEE BOOTS
Fishnet tight with over-the-knee boots is another great shoe pairing that I am addicted to these days. It’s subtle yet stylish!
Covered with thigh-high boots, you can show only one little part of the fishnet pattern so it’s easier to carry.
To me, it’s an effortlessly chic look as basically, you can look edgy once you wear the thigh-high boots!
Some ladies wear red velvet thigh-high boots with fishnet tights and that’s another lovely outfit. The texture of velvet can always elevate the look and add a dash of luxury to the outfit.
Also, you can look great with mid-calf boots as well. Pairing the fishnet tights with sock boots is such a no-fail combination!
8. PAIR FISHNET TIGHTS WITH A TULLE DRESS
I hope you find this creative as I never thought of pairing fishnet tights with a tulle dress before!
With the lightweight and voluminous netting, the tulle (tutu) dress is always the sweet girls’ dress. It’s youthful, playful, and feminine.
These features make the tutu dress a perfect dress to balance out the sexiness of the fishnet tights.
At the end of the day, it’s all about taking a balance. If you want to tame down the fishnet tights, avoid wearing the fitted dress like a bodycon dress and try out the voluminous dresses.
For lazy days, I will always throw a black silk slip dress over a white tee to dress down the look.
9. PAIR WITH JEANS FOR THE CASUAL EDGY LOOK
These days, styling fishnet tights with jeans is such a trendy combo. If you type “fishnet tight outfit” on Pinterest, nearly half of the photos are of girls with cutoff jeans and fishnet tights.
It’s really a clever way to add some womanly vibes to the trendy jean style. With a plain V-neck shirt and a pair of Vans, you are good to go!
However, if you opt for a more sophisticated look, try wearing a crop top with a plain pair of jeans without any cutouts.
That way, you can show your fishnet tights on the waist area. I must say this look isn’t easy to pull off at all.
As a girl with a belly and love handles, I just don’t think this looks flattering. But if you are those skinny bitches ( I hate you), girl this is your time to flaunt your abs!
