Fishnet Outfit Ideas You Should Try

Fishnet Outfit Ideas You Should Try

With the ever-changing trends in fashion, fishnets are no longer just for parties and Halloween costumes. They can also be worn with casual outfits that you can go out in on a normal day. Fishnets look bold and daring so you might think it is challenging to find the perfect outfit that matches with them. That is why we listed down different fishnet outfit ideas that you can try anytime.

  • Fishnets And Ripped Jeans – You must have seen a lot of fashion influencers wearing fishnet pantyhose inside their ripped jeans. Do not worry because you can definitely rock it too! Choose a pair of ripped jeans with the biggest tears so you can flaunt your fishnets inside. This simple and cool twist to the ragged look is very creative and refreshing. 
  • Fishnet And Oversized Sweater – If you are going for an effortless look, wearing oversized sweaters over fishnet leggings is the way to go. It also feels as comfortable as how the overall outfit looks: homey, comfy, and relaxing. This fashionable pair is also flexible because fishnet leggings can be paired with any color that you want. 
  • Fishnet And Denim Shorts – Wearing denim shorts over fishnets have the same feel as the fishnet-ripped jeans pair. However, you would want to choose fishnets with bigger holes to pair with your denim shorts. Because there is a lot more skin to show, large fishnet patterns will not completely defeat the purpose of wearing shorts and will give your legs its well-deserved exposure and appreciation. 
  • Fishnet With Dresses – Throwing in a pair of fishnet tights with your dresses can make your outfit 10 times more glam and eye-catching. Dresses are usually standalone outfits that you try to complement with accessories to complete the whole look. Wearing fishnet tights underneath will change the game. 

Pairing your dress with fishnets can complete the whole look even without trying to accessorize too much.  It also gives you an extra air of femininity, sophistication, and sexiness. The fishnets give you a glow up from fun and chic to glamorous. 

There are different outfit combinations that work perfectly with fishnets. Hosieree.com has a wide variety of fishnet designs that you can try and experiment with.

Finding the Best Lingerie for Your Body Type

Finding the Best Lingerie for Your Body Type

Women come in a variety of shapes and sizes, making each woman unique in her own way. Many body shapes for women fall into one of five key categories: apple, rectangle, triangle, inverted triangle, and the hourglass figure. 

These categories simply refer to the different proportions of a woman’s shoulders, waist, and hips. Weight is never a factor.

With so many categories, it can be difficult to find the best lingerie for your shape. When we wear lingerie, we want to feel sexy, confident, and powerful in our own skin. So, today we will discover how to find the best lingerie for our body type.

Hourglass Body Type

If you have an hourglass body type or a “36-24-36” figure, you just want to emphasize what you already have. Your shoulders and hips are the same width, and you have a slender waistline. We recommend garter belts, teddies, and corsets as the best lingerie for this particular body type. 

While a garter belt looks incredibly complicated, it really isn’t. Every woman should try one on at least once in their life. They can be worn under skirts and dresses and is a great starter piece for anyone dipping their toes in the world of lingerie for the first time.

Triangle Body Type

With this body type, your hips are slightly bigger and are wider than your shoulders. So, you want to make sure that you make your body looks balanced and more proportionate. Lace is always a winner on this body type, and a bustier can be used to draw more attention to the chest area. Matching bra and panty sets are also good at leveling out your shoulders and hips.

Lace is comfortable and sexy at the same time. It is also incredibly sheer and can provide a bit of mystery when worn, which makes it even more exciting.

Rectangle Body Type

This is described as more of an athletic figure with minimal curves. For this reason, you want something that cinches the waist. A corset is perfect for this body type. Longer torsos can also mesh well with a garter belt and push up bra. 

Inverted Triangle Body Type

Broad shoulders characterize this body type. A bandette with a lace panty would look amazing on this body type, along with camisoles. They all provide a tame look but go a long way in defining this body shape. A camisole can be practical and functional but is never bland when paired the right way. They are a staple for every woman’s wardrobe.

The Ins and Outs of Color Blocking

The Ins and Outs of Color Blocking

If you are looking for a fun and stylish way to make a fashion statement, then color blocking is something you may want to consider. It is a very versatile approach, making new strides with your current wardrobe. Today we will look at what color blocking is exactly and how you can take hold of this trend.

What Is Color Blocking?

Color blocking is when you take colors that are different from each other and then pair them together to create new combinations that both contrast and complement each other in all the right ways. Many have used the color wheel as their inspiration and guide in color blocking, but don’t be afraid to step outside of the box and choose the colors you want.

Colored opaque tights, for example, are becoming increasingly popular for this particular style. 

The Look of Color Blocking

When you color block, it can take your outfit from drab to fab in a heartbeat. You will soon find that the color combinations you can choose from are virtually endless. When choosing your colors, just make sure that the contrast between them is sharp and makes a statement. You don’t want to mix pastels and shades that are the same color.

Color Blocking with Tights

When you want to add some color to your outfit, the tights are a great place to start, especially if you want to try out color blocking. You can match the tight color to your shoes, and this combination can go a long way in lengthening your legs. 

You can also play around with different textures for an even bolder look. Ribbed and cable knits can be found in colored opaque tight varieties. Or you can choose more traditional patterns like plaid or a classic black or white. 

A black skirt, plaid tights, and black shoes, for example, is a great look that you can use for everyday wear. When choosing your tights, just make sure that you are getting the contrast you need to make your color blocking that much more effective.

For some inspiration and to find new tights to add to your collection, don’t hesitate to visit hosieree.com today. 

We have a vast selection of tights in several colors, textures, and patterns that you can choose from to build up your wardrobe and make a statement every time you leave the house. 

Must-Know Tips for Buying Tights for the First Time

Must-Know Tips for Buying Tights for the First Time

Congratulations! If you are reading this, then you have decided to take the plunge and enter the fashion world with a brand new pair of tights. Some of us started our journey wearing tights when we were kids, but if this is your first time, you probably have questions and need a little guidance on finding the best tights for your personality and body type.

Where Should You Buy Tights?

Everyone has a different experience when it comes to purchasing tights. Many choose a cheap pair of tights from a box store or supermarket because they feel they are affordable.

However, this can cause you to waste your money on something that is poor quality, not the right size, and only looks “alright” or a while before they head to the trash.

Choosing to buy your tights online gives you all the information you need regarding the brand and style you are about to purchase. You can usually find some great advice in blogs as well to help you make a more informed buying decision about which tights are going to be the most suitable for you.

Sizing

When choosing a size, remember that there is no single size when it comes to tights. Different brands are also sized differently. The best advice we can give you is to look at the sizing chart for the tights you are interested in and use that to help you find the right size. The size chart helps you choose tights that are appropriate for your height and weight.

Toe Options

You will also come across different toe options that can go with different types of shoes. If you are wearing your tights with sandals or peep-toe shoes, then open toe tights or invisible toe tights are ideal.

Support

Support tights or shaping tights are both different things. Support tights offer more leg compression, while shaping tights offer tummy control. Shaping tights also have built-in shapewear with control top slimming.

Denier

Finally, the denier is another consideration. The higher the denier, the more opaque the tights will be. Sheer tights, for example, have a much lower denier. You can find this information in the details section online when shopping for tights.

The Vintage Appeal of Stockings

The Vintage Appeal of Stockings

A classic pair of stockings is a must-have for any wardrobe. It is an accessory from the past that revolutionized how you built your outfit and continues to be the piece in your closet that can transform your ensemble today. So, why have stockings stood up to the test of time?

Here is what we think about the vintage appeal of stockings and how they continue to offer timeless appeal and style, even today.

What Are Vintage Stockings?

Vintage stockings are the ones that have been around for a while. Opaque stockings, for example, are just one variety that has been a staple in one’s wardrobe, and they are a great piece of fashion history we should all own.

Characteristics of Vintage Stockings

Just because a specific pattern or style has been around for what feels like a lifetime doesn’t necessarily make them classic or timeless. For something to be truly classic, vintage, or retro, it should have been popular before the second half of the 20th century. This means neons and crazy colors are out because they aren’t the timeless style we are showcasing today.

Back Seams

Back seam stockings are a popular feature you can find with many vintage stocking styles. Not only does the back seam offer incredible appeal, but it also gives you that classic and retro feel you are looking for.

Polka Dots

Polka dots are a more subdued and humble design and are still a bold choice for those looking for some excitement but don’t want to rock the back seam look. Polka dots throw some classic style into the mix while also being charming and feminine. They never go out of fashion.

A Little History

Did you know that before the 1940s, it was rare for a woman to leave the house without wearing a pair of silk stockings? It wasn’t appropriate to be barelegged in public during this time unless, of course, they were at the beach. Stockings used to be called hose, and most of them only came up to the mid-thigh and had to be held up with garters.

Before the ’30s, stockings weren’t stretchy either because the fabric wasn’t yet elasticized. So, to achieve the leg’s classic silhouette, they were woven in that way through a process known as Fully Fashioned or tubular knitters. The sizes back then were also determined by foot size.

Today’s stockings provide us with much more variety in patterns, colors, and materials than back then. So, be sure to visit hosieree.com today to explore these options and find something amazing to add to your wardrobe.

Using Sheer Tights to Your Advantage

Using Sheer Tights to Your Advantage

Once the warmer weather comes back around, we will be ditching our typical winter legwear and replacing it with bare legs to combat the heat. 

However, who really wants to go out bare-legged anyway? If you have less than flawless legs, you may want a way to cover up tiny blemishes that bother you. Well, sheer tights can definitely be used to your advantage.

Disguise Imperfections

What we notice isn’t necessarily noticed by others but how we feel when we go out has a lot to do with our self-confidence. So, if you would rather not go out bare-legged, then go with a great pair of tights.

When choosing tights, find a shade that is closest to your natural skin tone. The best tights are a low denier and are almost whisper-like on your legs. Many consider tights great makeup for your legs. They are like a primer for the legs.

No Pale Legs

After months of winter hibernation, our bare legs may be pale and not ready for a public debut. This is where the right tights can step in and save the day. Tights fit well, can be worn with open-toed shoes, hide your pale skin, and won’t sag. 

Depending on the shade you choose, you can make your legs look amazing. Sheer nude tights are great for every skin tone, including fair or dark skin. 

Glam Up Your Outfit

Tights are also a great way to glam up any outfit you may be wearing. They can be worn with a dress or skirt in cooler weather or even under shorts in warmer weather. You can choose a pair of patterned or fashion tights and pair them with your favorite jean shorts for a bold look. 

For the winter, you can protect your bare legs from the cold with tights and pair them with an over-the-knee boot.

With so many different ways to wear your tights during any season, you want to start building your collection now. Visit us at hosieree.com to choose some new tights and build your wardrobe.

3 Reasons Why Leggings Make Great Loungewear

How many pairs of leggings do you own? They are great legwear to have in any wardrobe because they are incredibly versatile and comfortable. However, you don’t even have to find ways to dress your leggings up for a day out; you can also enjoy your leggings at home as all-day loungewear.

Not Restricting

When lounging around at home, we want to be comfortable and feel unrestricted, right? That isn’t easy to do in a pair of stiff jeans. Yes, we can throw on some pajama bottoms, but sometimes we want to also feel a bit more put together than that  even while just lounging at home. This is where leggings step in and save the day.

Leggings won’t dig into your skin, cause any chafing, or prove to be uncomfortable at all. You will also find it incredibly satisfying pulling them up compared to fighting with a pair of jeans.

They Always Fit

Quarantine life leave you with a few extra pounds? Well, leggings don’t take notice. While your other pants might feel a bit tight these days, you will always smile when putting on a great pair of leggings. They won’t be too tight, and they will prove to be comfortable no matter what.

Natural Range of Motion

Another reason leggings make great loungewear is because they allow you to maintain a natural range of motion. You can stretch out on the couch, do a few yoga poses, or break out into dance. The movement possibilities are endless.

As you can see, leggings really are the new loungewear  when you want them to be. We also can’t forget that they are also totally acceptable as part of our going out ensemble as well, especially when we want to show off that new loose-fitting top we bought online while lounging on the couch in our leggings.
