Major trend alert: Fishnets & Denim

Hey, my lovely fashionistas! Did you ever stop and notice how the 90s trends are making a huge comeback this season? Let’s refresh some of the 90s trends, shall we? Metallic apparel & accessories, chokers, animal prints, wide legged denims, ripped denims, overalls, crop tops, co-ords are few of the trends that were widely popular in the 90s and they’re now back for good! The perfect mix of the modern 90s grunge is what we call fishnet + denim or fishnet + jeans trend. What is that, you may ask? It is simply wearing fishnet stockings underneath ripped denim. But why fishnet? Well, because it adds an interesting edge to an otherwise dull tee and denim outfit.
Popularised by reality star and fashion model, Kendall Jenner, who throughout her stay in Paris for Fashion week swayed fashionistas everywhere with her effortless pairing of an oversized crop sweater, denim and of course, fishnet stockings. Originally it was meant to be a winter trend, but people all over the world loved it so much, it pretty much has continued to dominate the street style in spring as well. And the it has definitely taken on all different forms, with fishnet being paired under boho dresses, t shirt dresses, slip dresses, high waist denim, shorts, skirts etc. the list is endless! Since this trend is still going strong this season, retailers and fashion houses can now be seen having a variety of colours in fishnet stockings or even fishnet ankle length socks.
Hence, I have decided to give this trend a try and see how it looks with a basic tee and moderately ripped jeans. And since this look is a bit grungy, we decided to do the shoot outdoors, in a completely different location. You will understand what I am talking about once you see the snaps. In this look, I’ve worn a tee with sushi printed all over & paired it with fishnet stockings and denim. I’ve also accessorized this look with a pair of black sunnies, a backpack and white sneakers. Hope you like the look and let me know will you be donning this trend anytime soon?

A striped affair

Hey, lovelies! How is it going? According to 2017 trend reports, Stripes will be a huge part of spring summer trends. Taking cue from popular blue and white striped men’s shirts, designers have now made their own versions by incorporating them into women’s wear. Which is why, you will be seeing a lot of variation of the shirt in the form of striped skirts, off the shoulder tops (OTS, for short), and even dresses. All made from the same fabric, it may seem. But all these variations look so good, so why not give it a try?
The shirt is very versatile, you can pair it with white formal pants and it will look equally good if you pair it with distressed denim jeans. Wear it for work and continue wearing it for an evening dinner, it is quite multipurpose. There is something so chic about the stripes that make it wearable with multiple outfits; one should only know how to style it well.  That is why everyone is wearing it these days! Have you caught on to this trend yet? I sure have!
I searched high and low for a similar shirt in most popular retail stores, but I couldn’t find it anywhere as most stores still had sale stock till last month. Until one day, I was walking around checking out a newly opened Forever21 outlet and there it was! A blue and white striped OTS top, that too with fan sleeves, it was just what I was looking for. And only 3 pieces were left in the style! So I absolutely had to get it. But don’t worry, now, 3 weeks after my purchase, I find almost one third of the Zara stores filled with beautiful and unique variations of the blue and white striped top.
The top I’ve bought has a lot of detailing in it. It is an off the shoulder top with blue and white stripes, huge flared sleeves, which are called “fan sleeves” & have bows at the shoulder. It’s certainly a bang for your buck! I honestly have seen a lot of gorgeous girls out there wearing it with white pants (which, no brainer suits it perfectly!), but the fashionista in me wanted to add a little drama, a little pop of colour to my outfit. So I paired the OTS top with ripped denim shorts, a colourful tassled choker necklace & pom-pom tie up sandals. Have a look below, and tell me can you feel the summer vibes in my outfit?
