LBD, SNEAKS, AND FISHNETS

How to wear: lbd, sneakers and fishnets.

This little black polyester dress, is from the 70s and belonged to a Vegas showgirl, and the other cool thing about is the dickey (the ruffled detachable collar). I thought I’d give it a spin during the day by pairing it with another worthy vintage find, the pre-WW ll denim jacket you have seen me sport on these pages before, here and here, and here (once with the same earrings). And to add a bit of naughty glam, fishnets seemed like the logical choice here (that at this moment seem to go with everything), as apparently do sneakers. And what could be better then high-tops with a the iconic Missoni zig zag pattern?

A note on fishnet tights, the fine mesh ones are definitely on the tamer side and an easier way to pull off the trend, if you’re hesitant. I think I prefer them in the less overtly sexy territory. Hence, I’d choose to wear them with an androgynous or sporty shoe, layer  under distressed jeans, or just peaking out between flat otk boots and a tunic. And  I just ordered fishnet ankle socks (here and here), and can’t wait to try them with booties and ballet flats!

I adore these black glass cameo shoulder dusters, from the 40s. And prefer to pair them with a more casual fabrics rather then more elevated ones, the contrast is more intriguing.
Let me know  if and how you rock your fishnets in the comments.
