Fishnet tights with denim pairing

Fishnets are a massive trend right now and I couldn’t resist trying my hands on this trend but of course with the added sprinkle of “Barbara”.  It was going to be classic fishnet (classic because of the size of the holes) styled with a few special bits to create the extra oomph that I love my outfits to have.

First look was styled with wet look skinny jeans gave it that biker edgy feel paired with my classic black courts.

So there I was happily minding my own business and scouting for a good location to get some couple of shots with my blogger friend Luna of Swaggaismything. We walked across the street and I spotted  a leather cowboy hat on the window display of a charity  shop in Clapham Junction, both our curiosity were peaked. This was temptation enough to entice us in, the shop turned out to house a treasure trove of goodies.

A black hat that had I had pictured in my dreams stood perched on a display stand daring me to try it on. My will to resist was at an all time low so, I put the hat on. It was the sweetest temptation I had yielded to this year.

Call me bonkers, however I find fishnet tights to be warmer than regular tights, the ones pictured are actually holdups. There are variety of style and hole sizes available to purchase but I love a classic fishnet as they get a lot more cost per wear. Whilst I have chosen to pair mine with denim in both of these looks, you can certainly style yours with a little black dress or an oversized jumper with thigh boots.

Fashion for me must always contain a mix of individualism, character and an element of fun... My blog is the platform at which I can engage in two of my favorite things I.e. writing and fashion

    These are such strong looks its hard for me to choose my fav, I will choose the last one coz of the fishnet and floral print shoes- I love that clash because its unexpected and that’s what I’m all about. Have a good Sunday hon. Bisous
    Ps Just saw your poncho is from M&S, cooool, that’s one brand that keeps fluctuating with its ‘cool factor’, but goes to show you can get some cool pieces when you style them well!

    • barbara says:

      Oh Biki, M&S is full of surprises and has some of the best pieces there is. I agree the hint of floral also made outfit number 2 my favorite and it meant my shoes finally got some wear after such a long time sat behind the closet. The amount of things I have that I don’t wear is ridiculous. I think it is time for a lot of depoping. haahaha.
