“I do recommend it for all girls, and boys, out there: put on a pair of fishnet stockings and find your inner sexiness!”
I have never been able to shake my obsession for fishnets.
I like them all: the micro mesh, the macro knits, the knee-highs and the stay ups.
All of them.
(As long as they’re black.)
They have gone out of style 100 times and they have come back 100 and 1 times. That’s the way the hosiery goes. I have had bad dates tell me they associate fishnets with sex workers, as if that’s a bad thing. I have had good dates that allow me to put mine onto them, happily so. I have had my fishnets gingerly removed, torn with intent, worn at the opera and later to Berghain. They have started fights and they have kindled romances.
So yes, I think it’s safe to say, I have a thing for fishnets.
The Fall 2021 Chanel show took place this week, and much to my total delight (and to the dismay of many others), nearly all the looks featured a fishnet foundation. In typical Chanel fashion, over half of the 60something looks were rather buttoned up in all its Fall Tweed glory. My associations with Chanel rarely stray from the Park Avenue woman with coiffed hair. But if I saw a coiffed woman strolling Park Avenue wearing Chanel pumps and fishnets? I would probably ask for her number (yes, I, too, can be Baby.)
Below, I share with you my favorite fishnets as well as my top 10 favorite looks from the Chanel runway, to get you inspired and ready to rub shoulders with the best of the Upper East Side. In fishnets? Babe, we will wear the tweed even better.
