I wore them all last winter and no one ever looked at me askance ... usually with long skirts with a slit in the back, which does in fact create a peekaboo effect.
me too i usually get them with a pattern, and i wear them with pencil skirts or jeans

I've worn fishnets over patterned or printed tights. It looks better than patterened tights on their own - the fishnet gives the leg more shape and gives the pattern more definition.

This sounds intriguing, any chance of posting a pic? If not of your gams, then maybe find the look online? I'd love to see it! Thanks.

I attempted wearing them under a pair of semi-sheer black tights. It's a much more subtle approach and I loove it. Though I would like to try it with true sheer tights.

^very creative!

I used to wear fishnet type stockings with tall boots and skirts....so just a bit of the stocking was visible. Haven't really been feeling them the last few seasons though. Something in wool--ribbed or dense crotchet--feels like a better alternative to me, at the moment.

I got these baby-fine fishnets at Target. Although they're so fine it almost defeats the purpose. They mainly just look like sheer tights from a distance.

Luckily they look rad with my new shoes.

from a mans point of view (well just my point of view) fishnets can make beautiful legs even more beautiful and if women wear them with style its just absolutely beautiful to look at.

i think it takes more than just fishnets to look like a hooker. a nice elegant outfit and fishnets are superb. fishnets with sneakers and a colorful outfit is also nice and damn funky. both of those ways of wearing fishnets are imo "hookersave" and i don't think people would perceive women as hookers if they wear it (just maybe really old guys who don't know what's up but who cares).

I have fishnets in several colours - black, red, purple & pink. If I wear them with a casual short skirt & flattish boots, I often wear a pair of over-knee socks on top

Generally with fishnets I try to tone down my general look a bit ..

I usually contrast the sexiness (sometimes even trashiness) of fishnets with conservative clothes & accessories ... so it tones down the sexuality of it.. or wear my hair messy .. Because with fishnets you can go wrong so easily.
