Fishnets are enjoying a resurgence as an important fashion item and rightly so, this humble net can add sophistication and glamour to any outfit, even a casual look can be stepped up with the addition of fishnet hosiery. The modern fishnets come in a variety of colours and sizes, these two factors alone make them extremely versatile. They can be worn over solid coloured tights for an interesting contrast or under ripped pants and jeans, peeping through the holes, creating a layered artistic effect. Despite the fact that there are gaps between the weave, fishnets can be an all season tight. Closely woven nets are surprisingly warm and can mostly be worn on their own on a cold day. Larger spaced nets are perfect for warmer weather or for wearing on top of other tights creating a two tone effect.

What we love the most about fishnets is that they come with an elasticized waistband which ensures your tights will never fall down!!  Yes, no crotch problems or gatherings at the ankles your fishnets will encase your legs like a glove and will stay put the entire time they are on. They have a lot of stretch which also means that you have quite a lot of leeway regarding sizing, basically, the rule is if you have very long legs opt for a medium/large, shorter legs extra small/small. Whatever the occasion we are sure to have fishnet that you will fall in love with. If you have never tried fishnets with so many styles to choose from now is the time to give them a go we predict they will become your favourite piece of hosiery too!! Not sure where to start here are some of our favourites.
