savvy styling by Annie Probert

Sunday, September 11, 2016


This trend isn't one for the faint hearted, I can confidently say you will get in excess of 50 dirty looks per hour when wearing fishnet accessories but I absolutely love them and I hope you will too.

Fishnet socks for me, were one of those tumblr fads that weren't actually acceptable to wear outside of social media but over time they've gradually become more acceptable and when I saw them on the River Island AW16 campaign imagery, I knew I had to try them for myself. I can honestly say I wish I'd been braver earlier. I chose to wear them with my sliders, I think they work best with a really simple outfit as they're such a bold statement in their own right. 

I worked my outfit around the socks and opted to style them with a loose fitting jersey dress and satin-style bomber jacket to create an athleisure feel. Keeping the outfit almost all black was essential to stop the outfit from look too OTT, unless that's the look you're going for. 
My style is simplistic and I didn't want to change that. I've kept this look true to my style whilst still experimenting with trends and I think that's important when you're looking to try something new. 

I hope this has given you some encouragement to try something outside of your fashion comfort zone!
