Netting a New Winter Look

What’s a girl to wear when the weather drops and ice creeps across the window screen?  It’s a tough one, cause no-one wants to wear trousers for the next three months, do they?

 

I always get cross with myself for dropping dresses as soon as the clocks go back, but I can’t be the only one who struggles with 120 Mrs Doubtfire denier tights!

 

So this year, I’m going to brave fishnets.  Wait.  Hear me out.  I know there are days when you absolutely need to be cosseted in layers, but this is the UK and today, for example, I was expecting to spend a good 15 minutes deicing the car before heading to work and I merely unlocked the door and drove off.  Fab!

 

I bought my pair of fishnets from H&M when I was in New York and have been trying them out with different outfits.  See what you think?

Perfect for Christmas parties, I for one, am loving the resurrection of fishnet tights.  They would also look really good with midi and maxi dresses and ankle boots, heels or chunky boots.

 

I’ll be honest, when I was younger I wouldn’t have gone near fishnets for fear of trying to appear sexy, now I’m all for it and it feels sassy!

 

You can get the ones I’m wearing from H&M for £8.99.

 

Have a fab weekend.
