Xx To my new Dames & Dudes, you're in for a treat. I love to share my random thoughts about the universe, sprinkled with fashion, travel and shit that you should know.
Topic: Fishnets: Who wore them first and how to rock them
Location: The Social Exchange
Contrary to popular belief fishnets aren't your standard overnight style trend. It can be traced back to the early 1900s. They became popular in the 1920's when women's skirt length raised (just below the knee). That's right, women who wore skirts that short were considered "loose". *Face palm* Showgirls liked the way the stage lights reflected off of them. They also gave them room to move around freely - ventilation was a bonus. The 60's, 70's,80's and 90's were the eras of punk, goth, and self expression. Fishnets became extremely popular for the crowds that liked to stand out.
Fast forward to today, where the universe is shifting back to a carefree sense of style. I wear nets at least 3 times a week. Fashion designers showcase them on the runway which is inspired by the street styles which inspires celebrities and the cycle continues. The best way to wear them is by wearing them . . . they go with everything. Scroll through these looks for a better idea. As always, if you need a pair I know a guy Xx
Just a note: I wear them over my undies.
