Caught Up In The Nets

You now officially have every reason to whip out your fishnet tights that you have sitting around your filthy closet.

Fishnet tights have made a particular comeback this season, especially in young women’s street wear. It goes beyond wearing them under your favorite dresses and skirts, though this season.

The most recent trend in young women’s fashion is is to pair these peculiar patterned tights under a pair of distressed jeans. Often, young models are seen pairing them underneath high-waisted distressed jeans, paired with a basic crop top. The point of the fishnet trend is to have the fishnets showing above your high-waisted pants and through the distressed parts of your jeans.

It is a recent, and upcoming trend, mostly sported by young adults, specifically women. Fishnets may be something of the past, or maybe even too much for you, however, if they are paired with a more simplistic crop top, or even a cropped hoodie, you can achieve this grungier look successfully.

The fishnets add a grungy, punk appeal to your outfit, and they are a great way to spice up your basic distressed jeans, especially if you have been feeling bored of your distressed jeans lately. As denim has made a rise in popularity, there have been many unique ideas to update, and spice up, your most basic distressed denim.

Update your look a little bit this season, but don’t get too caught up in the (fish) nets.

Basic B***H

As Spring slowly comes to a close and Summer is right around the corner, basics should be apart of your wardrobe. Basics are great, because you can layer with them, they are versatile, and they are timeless, because they never go out of style.

Now, when I say basics, I mean plain t-shirts, no designs or intricate patters – just a plain, old Jane top. These are also what some call essentials, and just like their name, they are incredibly essential this season.

Looks I would recommend include layering your basics underneath tank tops, slip dresses, a denim jacket, or cardigan. The idea of being able to wear them alone or underneath articles of clothing, makes basics very versatile.

One of the best parts about the use of basics is the idea that you can pair them with even your most outrageous jackets, slip dresses, crop tops, etc. Since basics are so plain as it is, pairing them with statement pieces is a great option to take with them. If you want to make your outfit more exciting. pairing statement pieces and basics is a perfect opportunity for you to cycle in wearing your statement pieces this season. I know I do not wear my statement pieces enough, anyways.

If you want to keep the outfit simple, however, throwing a basic on over a pair of jeans is always a valid option. How you decide to wear your basics is up to you!

Basics can come in the form of crop tops, tank tops, basic t-shirts, and basic long-sleeve t-shirts. They can also be loose or form-fitting, distressed and not distressed, low v-neck or high v-neck. Whatever your style may be, there are basics out there that cater to everyone’s needs and desires.

Since the weather is not quite warm enough every day to be wearing summer wear, basics are a great alternative to get to wear your summer clothes paired with something underneath to keep you a little warmer.

Layering is one of the best things you can do for yourself, especially during the transitional seasons.

Break out those basics, it is time to be a basic betch.

Street Style Icons

Who do you look to for your day-to-day fashion inspiration? I constantly am searching for the newest and freshest faces in the entertainment business, who know what to wear and when to wear it.

Every person’s fashion icons are unique to themselves, as you try to develop your own sense of style. Bouncing ideas off of style icons, as well as regular people, can help you form your fashion identity.

My fashion icons include:

  1. Kendall Jenner – Casual, clean lines, minimalist, comfortable and cool are words I would use to describe Kendall Jenner’s style. She always is switching up her looks, often using basics, while including a statement piece to each and every one of her looks. As a model, it is her job to look good and sport pieces that make us all drool with envy. The more beautiful thing about Jenner’s style is that it’s an attainable look for everyone. She sports relatable pieces, such as basic crop tops and high-waisted jeans, that the average American can afford and feel comfortable in. It’s definitely no secret that Jenner loves her crop-tops and high-waisted apparel!

  2. Gigi Hadid – Cool and chic go hand-in-hand with Hadid’s style. She’s often seen sporting lots of chic clothes, and shares a similar style to that of Jenner’s. Both models are friends and bounce ideas off of each other. Hadid’s looks are elegant, and often, attainable for the average American, as well. Clean cut lines are also relevant in Hadid’s style, as she is often caught sporting basics, cool denim, and statement jackets and pieces. Hadid often goes out with a bang!
  3. Vanessa Hudgens – BOHO CHIC. Hudgens can make the best of the best look even more best. Her bohemian vibe and her ability to make things look effortless is a skill that not all can attain. Her style and fashion has adapted into a mature look that everyone can appreciate. Her street style is killer and she does not go unnoticed in my book. She loves her big, flowy pants and I can’t say I disagree with her insane obsession with flowy pants and skirts.
  4. Cara Delevigne – It is so hard for me not to rant and rave about Delevigne’s style, but she’s just so cool. Not only is her personality cool, but her style is absolutely rad. Delevigne is not afraid to take risks and she can always be seen sporting the most in-style items. Everything she owns, everyone else wants to own. Her style is unique, cool, chic, and classic. Delevigne is often caught sporting over-the-top, daring outfits, but somehow these outrageously cool items all seem to make themselves look good on her. Unique is the best way to describe this girl’s ever changing style.

Distressin’ Over Nothin’

Do not let anything but your clothes be distressin’ you this season.

Distressed denim, jackets, tops, etc. are a way to jump into this summer season, with a fun statement. You can distress just about anything, from tops to bottoms, and they serve as a versatile look for both women and men.

Whether you debut light distressing or heavy distressing, it adds a more punk, grunge look to your outfit, which is certainly in this upcoming season. Distressed crop tops, distressed denim, distressed jackets, distressed dresses, you name it, they have it.

Distressed denim, in particular has found its’ way back into our beloved hearts, and style icons of every age have been engaging in the trend. Distressing is a fun trend that is great to wear for every day casual wear, as well as a statement piece for a night out.

This is an all ages inclusive trend, as well as an all inclusive gender trend, for both males and females. Best part about it is that it is completely gender neutral! Great for everyone.

Not to mention, distressing can update an old article of clothing you never really thought about and is an easy DIY project! It’s not very time consuming, and can really do a lot to an old pair of jeans, top, jacket, or dress you were trying to sell at the nearest Plato’s Closet.

Stop distressin’ about your life, and start distressing your closet. This is a universally awesome trend that you should hop on board for!

Models Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid have been spotted sporting this trend numerous times. Chokers have become a staple in their closets, as they have been caught wearing a variety of different chokers, some made with diamonds, and other chokers are just made of velvet.

Style Icon and Fashion designer Kristin Cavallari even brought her Laguna Beach staple velvet choker back, Instagraming a photograph of herself in high school sporting a velvet choker. Looks like nothing has changed since the 90s!

Whether they are thick, thin, layered, black, velvet, lace, or made out of diamonds, this trend is a must-try.
