Long gone are the days where ‘fishnet’ is only associated with diamond-shaped hosiery. Fishnets are having a huge moment, and they can now be seen not just in stockings but in other styles of clothing as well, appearing in new and unexpected ways. It’s important to note the fishnet of 2019 is a larger version of the standard small fishnet — it’s more netting, if you will.
Just look at designers such as Ports 1961, JW Anderson and Richard Malone, who took netting to another level in their S/S’19 runway shows. Their ensembles are quirky, stylish and fun, with a haute bohemian air.
Below are some of our favourite fishnet pieces to hit the trend right. From macrame details to unique fabrics, deliver your spring netting look with this perfect accent to your #OOTD.
This black long sleeved dress, finishing just above the ankles, is a great option for those wanting to be on trend at work. It comes with a rope belt that you can easily replace with a more chic black leather belt.
This beige skirt emulates the ‘wiggle’ skirt silhouette — a figure hugging skirt that cinches in at the knees. This particular one has a mesh overlay and fringe hem, delivering a cooler and more casual vibe to the traditional wiggle skirt. Wear with a solid coloured crop top for a sassy vibe.
If you’re not into head to toe netting, or even fishnet stockings, why not try these quirky ankle socks? Rock these with heeled pumps (make sure your shoes are closed toe) to add a cool touch to your ensemble.
This pair gives all the British summer feels. Made from 100 per cent cotton for both its upper and inner material, these shoes look stylish while also allowing your feet to breathe. The navy and red outer edge piping brings these beige shoes to life. Wear with a navy blazer dress. Très chic.
For some serious street-style, turn to this netted overlay black tee. It’s a versatile piece that can be slung over your bikini when nipping up to the bar on your beach vacay, or worn layered over a white t-shirt and paired with some denim shorts. From bralettes to boob tubes to crop tops worn under or over, have a play with what works best for you.
Made from 100 per cent leather, these gold net sandals are fab for hot summer days in the sunshine, whether you’re on vacation or just chilling in tropical Singapore. You can’t go wrong by wearing a white maxi dress with this. While you’re at it, make sure you have a crossbody basket bag to round up the look.
This dress, a composite of silk and satin in forest green, features netting on the chest area and lower hemline. Sitting pretty at a midi length and sporting a cinched waistline, it will make you look and feel feminine and elegant. A great go-to ensemble for a wedding dinner.
Not to be worn solo, this beige tulle top will look great over a bikini, crop top or pretty bralette (for the braver souls). The mesh, unlike the other pickings, has been embroidered with white beads and sequins, offering the netting a delicate touch. Cut for a loose fit, it’s an easy coverall for lazy days.
Sure, it’s not quite suitable for Monday morning at the office — but who wants to live their life constricted to what is office appropriate? This bold, bright and slightly bizarre dress by Calvin Klein, made from a cotton and wool mix, was inspired by the stark contrast of American Horror Story with the American dream. Genius.
Made from soft cream and black jersey, this slip-on summer dress is an easy buy for Singapore’s hot climate. It hits the boho vibe but still delivers an air of sophisticated style — especially when paired with some black slides and oversized dark sunglasses.
Available in four unique colours, this bag hits two trends in one go — the (still ongoing) bucket bag trend and the netting one too. We love that the handle and inner rim is made of a gorgeous cow leather, which ups its elegance, whilst the exterior is a tactile macrame. For work-to-play, the black option is also really attractive.
