^ It used to be that way, but then there was a big fishnet trend a few years ago and they entered the mainstream. I bought a bunch then and still wear the surviving ones sometimes. I have no problem wearing them to work. I do wear them with longer skirts.

I think there are images here that address both angles:

It all depends on the person and the environment.

Echoes, I see that as far away as possible from any interesting line, bc it's just plain YAWN.

I have that dress in two colors

Worn backwards it has a boat neck with intersting criss cross banding, and I've also worn it frontwards with skinny jeans.

^ It just goes to show the power of styling It sounds like you're doing exactly what's been recommended here ... low cut or bare legs, but not both. Plus if I recall you have a fairly wholesome look, which may be the very best way to balance things out

Thanks ta ta! I do think I have a little bit of the girl next door type look and I'm shy IRL which helps tone down any outfit. Being flat chested also helps

^ I was shopping last night for a jacket, and the first one I tried on fit pretty well, except it fell short of closing by a couple inches. SA: "You are busty, aren't you" I'm not sure these are words one wants to hear while shopping--or perhaps anytime :p

err...i like the way that girl looks in that dress...
for a party or something...

i don't think that everyone could pull it off...
but i think she does and she looks super sexy...
:p

i think the soft natural hair and not overdone make up does a lot to tone it all down...
plus she has simple chic accessories with it..
it works for me...

that's easy! concentrate on exposing one area of you body ex. back/legs/arms, instead of fully exposing every single part which may seem a bit trashy.

^ I don't know--reminds me of a very depressed & sad Jessica Alba. Part of the reason I don't care for the look is that she doesn't look happy in it ...

I continue to feel that that is too plunging a neckline for someone well endowed. I also do not like to see the entire silhouette of the breast from either side, I feel that is really too much for the street if 'street' is not part of your job description

Wrt fishnets, I think what helps is a smaller or more complex weave. I have some that have additional criss-cross lines that look like the ribbons of ballet shoes going up your leg--those are my favorite. And they definitely cannot be too tight What really crosses the line for me is flesh bulging through the openings--really bad

Jamie Gunns (unfortunate name considering the picture ). I don't know if she has a thread here or not.

There are more pictures in a feature on Herve Leger beginning here:
