What do you think of flesh coloured fishnets? And what about fishnets on 'generously proportioned' legs? IE an overall slim person with slightly thicker legs... Sick of my damn legs limiting my hosiery options *sigh*

I love flesh-colored fishnets. They are perfect for those outfits that would look best with bare legs, but it's too cold out. I like flesh-colored sheer tights as well (especially stockings with a visible seam in the back). Yes, you read correctly. Flesh-colored sheer tights. I can be even more vulgar and call them nude hose.

Anyway, fishnets don't add the illusion of bulk the way some patterned and/or brightly colored tights do, so I think anyone can wear them.

Sometimes I think with fishnets it looks best to wear a longer skirt & not show the widest part of the calf ... somewhat depends on the look you're going for though

I like to wear them with certain dress, skirts and sometimes even shorts even.

I've heard wearing white fishnets look great on pale people. (I'm naturally as white as a ghost.) But I've yet to find a proper pair.

^ Hmm ... I am pale and have nude, brown, and black fishnets. I prefer the darker ones myself ...

This thread reminded me of the only time I've ever worn fishnets, I was 12-13 and wore them with a denim mini... There are tasteful ways to wear fishnets I'm sure but I just avoid them now.

Fishnets are great for either adding texture and depth, subtly subverting a conservative look, or both.

-tweed pencil skirts /twin sets and pearls.

-when layering a variety of prints or textures in similar colors

-adding interest to shoes: patent mary-janes for a dancerly look, or adding depth to strappy heels

I have them in black, chocolate, nude, and also a fuschia/black mix which goes especially well with vintage print dresses from the 60's and 70's.

I used to wear them with a black leotard for tap dancing. I don't think I will bother with them again though.

I just wear the fishnets by themselves.

I prefer the dark ones.
