Fishnets are back; we’re here to show you how to wear them.

Add a little sass to your stocking collection this season with a pair of fishnet tights, one of our current winter trend obsessions. Worn throughout history by flapper girls, rock stars and new-aged punks, fishnets are enjoying a recent revival, as seen on the likes of model Kendall Jenner and style icon Alexa Chung.

Frankly, we’re excited. Not only do they add texture to your look, they can also be worn in a range of different ways. Read on to see how you can incorporate the fishnet trend into your wardrobe this winter.

While longer, more feminine shapes work well with wider-spaced netting, adding a subtle hint of texture to your look.
