Wearing fishnets to work can seem like a risky move. However, if done properly, fishnets can add a modern class to your everyday formal outfit that plain black cotton socks just can’t. A knee high fishnet sock underneath a pair of cropped jeans adds a small touch of pizazz to your outfit.

Whether you want to wear fishnets to the gym for a workout or not is a controversial preference.

The good new is, in 2017 you don’t need to go to the gym or workout to wear fitness attire. Athleisure is a recent trend that sees people doing their regular day to day activities dressed in workout clothes. Adding fishnet’s to the equation escalates this into a cool kid type style that almost anyone can pull off. A small/medium net is perfect for this style as a wide would be too loose and a smaller net would be too restricting and wouldn’t blend as well as these perfect Falke autumn basket tights.
