5 Tips For Mastering The Fishnet Trend 

5 Tips For Mastering The Fishnet Trend

Fishnets are synonymous with 80s and 90s alt-rocker style, even if they’re really so much more versatile than just that. With all things old becoming new again, we’re seeing a huge fishnet resurgence that we just can’t get enough of. 5 tips for mastering the fishnet trend in 2023 are: 

1. Customize with your pattern – Fishnets are far from a “one size fits all” style. There’s larger patterns, smaller patterns, even those with a bit of sparkle like our Adrian Sparkle Fishnet Tights. If you’re going with a classic grunge chic look, a classic medium sized fishnet like the Fiore Passion Fishnet Suspender Tights will never let you down. It creates the perfect pattern to peek out from and contrast with ripped denim. Want to dress it up? Break out those sparkle fishnets instead. 

2. Layer up if you’re going with a mini skirt – Fishnets with a mini skirt is a classic combination, but pairing it well without losing balance can get a little tricky. Fishnets really draw the eye to the legs and they show quite a bit of skin, so keep layered up on top. If you plan to wear fishnets with a anything mini, like skirt or tailored shorts, go with a higher collar, a blazer or jacket, or a loose menswear inspired blouse. You want your legs to shine, and this draws the eye right where you want it to be. 

3. Let it pop up top – Crop tops are back in style in a huge way, and this lets you show off your fishnets a little differently. Rather than bringing attention to your legs, pair your fishnets with lower waist jeans and let them show off your midsection instead. Wide and high waisted fishnets like our Trasparenze Edera Wide Fishnet Tights can be pulled up above your belt line, giving you a little pop of texture and edge between your jeans and the hem of your crop top. 

4. Fine fishnets are office-friendly – If you think you can’t wear fishnets to the office, think again. While the wide edgy fishnets might not be the top choice for workwear, finer fishnets are perfect. It’s classic, it’s chic, and it’s a look that can be dressed up or down if you plan on going out after-hours. 

5. Fishnet socks are made for booties – Pairing booties with a skirt is a classic combo, but you can sprinkle the look with easy edge just by pairing fishnet socks with the look. Fishnet socks that go to the ankle or knee, like the Intimidea Attraction Rete Fishnet Knee Highs with ankle boots let you get a little taste of the fishnet style without going all the way if you don’t want to. 

Fishnets are a must in any hosiery wardrobe, and we have all the styles you need to embrace each and every look. Find your next fishnets now at Hosieree.com! 

5 Styling Tips To Elongate Your Legs 

5 Styling Tips To Elongate Your Legs

Long legs have a way of giving any look an air of grace, but unfortunately, we’re not all born with them! With the right outfit and the right hosiery, faking it is no problem. 5 styling tips to elongate your legs instantaneously are: 

1. High waisted pants do the trick – For short legs and a long waist, flipping the script is as simple as a pair of high waisted pants. It shortens the waist while lengthening the legs, and when paired with a heel it gives that perfect willowy look. To bring it into the 90’s resurgence trend that’s so huge right now, pair some ripped high waisted and relaxed fit jeans with a peekaboo of fishnet tights underneath. 

2. Match your shoes with your hosiery – If you’re wearing a skirt and hosiery, but you’re not trying to go for a patterned hosiery look, there’s a simple way to elongate the leg. Pairing the color of your shoes with your hosiery gives your legs serious length. If you’re wearing nude hose, pair with a nude shoe. If you’re going big and bold with colored tights, let your shoes continue the color pop. 

3. Wear wedges or heels – One of the classic ways to give yourself a taller, longer, and leaner look is to pair your outfit with wedges or heels. For those with open toes, toeless hosiery like the Calzitaly Toeless Sheer Pantyhose with Cooling Effect lets you show off your pedicure in a stunning pair of heels without your hosiery getting in the way.  

4. Never underestimate the power of vertical lines and patterns – Patterns can be your best friend when it comes to elongating. While a horizontal stripe might not do you many favors, vertical lines certainly will. Hosiery with vertical designs like the Gabriella CORE Thigh High Stockings with a cute vertical heart pattern going down the side of each leg draw the eye up and down, giving you immediate length. 

5. Celebrate slits – A slit in a skirt or a pair of pants works much in the same way as vertical patterns. It draws the eye upward, bringing length to your look without much effort. An additional benefit of a slit? It gives a great peekaboo to highlight the hosiery you have on underneath. 

Longer and leaner can be just one simple wardrobe hack away. For the hosiery that gives you the graceful length you’re looking for, see what we have in store at Hosieree.com today. 

DIY Hosiery Stain Removal Guide 

DIY Hosiery Stain Removal Guide

Hosiery is made with thinner, more delicate fibers than other clothing like jeans or sweaters. So when it comes to the care of hosiery, it’s really important to exercise extra care. When your hosiery becomes stained, scrubbing too hard or using harsh chemical stain removers can degrade and hurt the fibers. To protect your hosiery from damage, it’s important to understand how to wash them and remove stains. Here is our guide to DIY hosiery stain removal.

Wash Your Hosiery

Start by filling a large bowl with warm water. Add the recommended amount of a gentle detergent. We recommend a hosiery-specific wash like Ames Walker. It’s best to wear gloves but if you don’t, remove any jewelry from your hands. You don’t want it catching and tearing. Place your hosiery in the bowl. Use your hands to gently wash the legs, waistband, and feet. While washing, inspect the hosiery for any stains. If you notice any stains that are not lifting, you will need to apply a stain removal solution.

Stain Removal Solutions For Your Hosiery

Depending on the type of stain you will need to add a capful of the following solutions to your bowl: 

● Hydrogen Peroxide: Coffee, blood, fruit, and vegetable stains

● Club Soda: Red wine, grease, and mud

● White Vinegar: Grass, lotion, and sweat

● Isopropyl Alcohol: Ink, makeup, and paint

Let the solution sit to lift the stain. If needed, you can guide it along by gently scrubbing it with a paper towel. You want to use paper towels because they have weaker fibers than your hosiery. So if you accidentally scrub the stain too hard, the paper towel will pile and tear and not your hosiery.

Properly Drying Your Hosiery

Once the stain has lifted, lay out a large towel on a flat surface. Remove the hosiery from the bowl. You then will gently squeeze the hosiery to wring out any excess water. Once you are done, you will lay the hosiery out on the towel. Air dry your tights. Then fold and put away.

Using these washing and stain removal techniques will protect your hosiery from damage during the wash. It will also lift any of the common stains that can occur when wearing them. The best way to keep your hosiery looking great is to invest in quality hosiery from the start. At Hoiseree.com, we offer the finest quality European hosiery. With proper care, our hosiery will last you a lifetime.

How To Protect Your Hosiery Against Runs And Tears

There is nothing worse than looking down and noticing you have a run in your tights. Well, except when you get a run while putting on your tights. Fortunately, these are both avoidable scenarios if you know how to properly wear and care for your hosiery. Here are our tips to prevent your hosiery from getting runs, tears, and piling.

1. Buy High-Quality Tights

Although drugstore tights have a lower cost, they are made with inferior fibers. So they get damaged very easily and quickly. Over time, you will have to continuously replace them. Ultimately, the replacement costs add up to more than the cost of a pair of tights that will last for years. The University of Georgia has a really helpful guide to fiber quality to help you select high-quality tights. You can also buy your hosiery from a quality supplier.

2. Buy The Right-Sized Tights

Tights that are too tight will stretch the fibers to their limit. This makes them more susceptible to breakage, tears, and damage like runs. If they are too big, they will sag which can lead to excess friction on the fabric, causing piling and tears. Make sure to read the size guide when purchasing hosiery.

3. Wash By Hand

Most tights can be put in the washing machine and survive. However, it’s not the best thing for them. When fibers are wet, they are more susceptible to damage. The spin of the washing machine can put excess pressure on the hosiery fibers risking runs and tears. If they are washed with other clothing, they can be torn by buttons, zippers, and stiffer fibers. Washing by hand in warm water with a gentle cleanser will protect the fibers.

4. Keep Clear Nail Polish With You

One of the best ways to prevent runs is to catch them while they are still small holes. When you get a small hole or tear in your hosiery, apply a small dab of clear nail polish. This will lock the fibers into place, preventing any further runs and tears from forming. When you wear hosiery, keep a small bottle of clear nail polish with you and you can prevent the damage from getting worse.

These tips will help you keep your hosiery in excellent condition. For the highest quality hosiery, check out the selection at Hoiseree.com. We offer the finest quality products from the most well-known European hosiery manufacturers. When cared for properly, our hosiery will last you a lifetime.

4 Legging Styling Tips for Turning Heads

Do you refrain from wearing leggings because you aren’t sure how to style them properly? Or maybe you just don’t know the best way or time to wear them. We are here with some of the best legging styling tips you can try.

Shopping Tips

Let’s start with a few shopping tips. The leggings you wear out should be made of a thicker material. You want to avoid anything that may be see-through. You also want to make sure the leggings you choose are soft and comfortable to wear and offer adequate support. If not, you will be more uncomfortable and might decide to ditch the leggings for future outfits.

The best leggings are those that prove to be versatile and fit you correctly. If you follow these tips, you will find you have made a great investment. 

1. Shirts You Can Wear With Leggings

When wearing shirts with leggings, you want to stick to longer shirts. This makes for a much more presentable ensemble. Button-down shirts pair well with leggings and are a great choice when building a spring outfit. Long sweaters are a good choice in colder weather and a great opportunity to play around with different colors and patterns. 

If you need more of a dressed-up or business look, pair your long shirt with simple black leggings and add a belt around your waist. This accentuates your waist and provides a better fit for a larger sweater. Pair the outfit with a pair of burgundy pumps, and you are office ready!

Pairing a dress with your leggings during fall and winter is another great look. A sweater dress with black leggings and knee-high boots is fun and a good way to showcase your style. 

2. Creating a More Casual Outfit

Ready for more casual outfit ideas? Leggings are stretchy and soft and are often used as loungewear. If you need to head out to run an errand, don’t bother changing. Style your comfy patterned leggings with your favorite t-shirt. 

3. An Athleisure Look

Leggings are versatile and can take on whatever style you throw at them. If you want more of an athleisure look, try brightly colored leggings paired with a white tee. You can also style high-waisted leggings with a patterned sports bra during warmer times of the year for a fun and sporty look. 

4. Styling Leather Leggings

If you feel bold and adventurous, try a pair of leather leggings. A pair of sexy leather leggings paired with knee-high boots and a long sweater is a look guaranteed to turn a few heads.

Rocking Your Tights During the Holidays

Rocking Your Tights During the Holidays

The holidays are upon us, and our fair share of parties, events, and gatherings come with them. From Thanksgiving to New Year’s Eve, you try to dress and look your best and want to make sure you have the perfect outfit for each occasion. Here is how to rock your tights as you eat, drink, and be merry this holiday season.

Casual and Formal Looks

For a casual and formal look, you can’t go wrong with thigh-high tights. This accessory is not only trendy but also complements both of these looks. Thigh-high tights add dimension while also keeping you warm during cooler weather. 

Opaque Tights

Many find opaque tights to be a showstopper, making them the perfect choice for a holiday outfit. Don’t be afraid to go bold with color and pair your tights with a tweed skirt and blazer for a more professional holiday look. 

Play With Color

Watch for festive hues like forest green, silver, and even gold when shopping for tights this holiday season. Sheer tights often come in these fun and festive colors and can make the perfect addition to your holiday ensemble. They stand out and can be paired with your favorite open-toed sandals or heels to finish your look.

Don’t Be Afraid to Sparkle

Never be afraid to show off some sparkle. Tights with crystal embellishments or sparkle can create a more memorable holiday outfit. They pair well with a mini dress or skirt.

Make a Statement With Lace

Want to keep the versatility of tights but still be able to make a statement? Lace can be used for a nighttime or daytime look and pairs well with various pieces, including shorts or a dress. 

Choosing the Right Colors and Patterns

If all you have are flesh-colored tights, you can easily take them from frumpy to gorgeous. Make sure the tights are the color of your skin tone. 

Semi-opaque tights are a bit glossy and can be very chic. Burgundy is another popular holiday color and can help you create a stunning monochromatic look. Patterned tights are a great way to update any outfit, while fishnets in nude and black can make a fashion statement.

Finding the Most Flattering Patterned Tights for Your Body

Looking into getting a few pairs of patterned tights but don’t know what would be the most flattering to your body type. You have come to the right place! 

1. Fishnets and Dot Patterns

Fishnets are a classic patterned tight design that many of us have probably not worn in a while. They were at their most popular during the 90s and early 00s. While they are not entirely out of style these days, they have definitely been replaced by even fancier and more sophisticated patterns. 

If you have flaws you want to hide, like less-than-perfect knees, then a pattern like fishnets and dots are ideal because these flaws can be hidden more effectively. Fishnets also give the illusion of slimmer calves or more shapely legs. 

2. Animal Prints

Animal print can also be flattering for some. They make the legs look flatter and give them a darker outline. Animal print tights also don’t make anyone look smaller or bigger but are great for making a statement. When choosing an animal print for your body type, keep in mind that larger prints can easily overwhelm your proportions. So, go with smaller patterns and thinner stripes.

3. Mid-Rise Waist

If you have more of an apple shape, mid-rise waist tights will be the most flattering. Even better if you can find some with mesh detailing in the lower leg area. Mid-rise waist leggings don’t draw a lot of attention to the stomach or waist.

4. High-Rise 

If you have an hourglass figure, then go for high-rise tights. Since they have a higher cut, they can easily slim the midsection. If you are curvier, try finding some with side paneling to elongate the leg. 

5. Wide Waistband

If you have more of a triangle-shaped body, you have curves around the hips and want to avoid anything that digs into the waist. Find something with a fold-over or wide waistband that hits right below your belly button. If you have a wider bottom area, try solid and bold colors rather than prints. 

6. Cropped

If you have more of a rectangular shape, you want to find cropped tights or a lower waist that hits below the belly button. This will narrow the waist and accentuate your good curves. You can also rock prints, solids, or anything in between, including fun metallics.

Now that you have a better idea about what tights are ideal for what body type, head to hosieree.com to shop the vast selection available. 

How to Put on Tights While Avoiding Ladders

How to Put on Tights While Avoiding Ladders

If you wear tights often, then you are already well aware of this fear—you are pulling your tights up only to notice a ladder. A ladder is a run in the tights or a long hole often appearing when you pull them up. To avoid this, follow these easy tips. 

1. Avoid putting on jewelry and accessories until after you have put on your tights. Never pull up tights while wearing jewelry, including bracelets, watches, rings, and long necklaces. These can easily get caught up in your tights as you pull them on, causing a ladder. 

2. Clip your nails. Before wearing tights, make sure your fingernails and toenails are clipped to an appropriate length, so they don’t pose a risk to your tights. 

3. When you start pulling the tights up, roll one leg to the toe part and then gently slide your foot into the rolled-up leg. You can then carefully pull the tights up over the heel. Repeat these steps for your other foot. Slowly pull the tights up and over your knees.

4. You can continue slowly pulling them up until they are over your hips and waist. Take great care when doing this. If you go too fast, you risk a ladder and other damage and will have to find a new pair of tights and start the process over.

Would a Higher Denier Help?

Yes! A higher denier means thicker tights. Tights with a lower denier are much more likely to tear and rip faster. If you want to wear tights with a lower denier, go for a bigger size, so you don’t overstretch the fabric and risk any runs or ladders.

Is There a Best Way to Store Tights?

When storing your tights, you should roll them up or fold them neatly before placing them into your drawer. Storing them separately is another good way to prevent ladders. You also want to ensure all your tights are stored separately from your bras and other undergarments to avoid damage. The tights can easily get hooked onto a bra.
