Bodysuit C/O Shopbop | Thrifted Leather Belt | Fishnet Tights from ASOS

If you happen to follow my Instagram, it may not be entirely surprising for me to admit I've become slightly obsessed with fishnet tights. Truthfully though, they've always been one of my guilty pleasures when it comes to fashion. Not being very keen on many of the ways they've been styled in recent times, I tend to gravitate towards how they were styled in 50s and 60s. Think Sophia Loren and Brigitte Bardot, rather than 80s music video girls. And to be fair, I haven't incorporated them into many outfits suitable for wear out and about. Working on it, though.

Paired with a jersey bodysuit from Shopbop and a vintage leather belt, I was trying for a retro dance-class vibe here. And what's more simple than a sleeveless black bodysuit? This one is a little loose around the waist, hence the belt, but that's hardly a negative. In my opinion, it makes it much more flattering than if it were skin tight, especially when paired with a form-fitting skirt or high waisted jeans for everyday wear.

  1. I've always been a fan of legwear, bare legs look unfinished and boring to me. I've been a bit uncertain about fishnets in the past unless it's a smaller net, but despite the net being of a normal size, they actually look quite good here. You should consider a smaller net or even a micronet, you get the look of sheer tights, but they're actually fishnets and, therefore, breathy and can be worn in warm weather. Here are some examples of what I mean.
