A Fishnet Revival

Cosmopolitan – August 2011 edition

Oh my! I’ve just spotted this piece that Cosmopolitan recently shot with a gorgeous curvy girl called Lily. They’ve really made the most of her sensational curves with this fabulous retro inspired shoot.

If this shoot is anything to go by, the 60s and 70s revival looks set to give a new lease of life to fishnets. Lily has accessorised her leopard print and hotpants combo with a pair of fishnets from Pamela Mann. This outfit would work for day with bare legs but for evening the Pamela Mann Fishnet Tights give her look a more dressed up sophisticated feel. She looks totally ready to party!

A white lace dress is one of this season’s key pieces and I adore the flared sleeves on Lily’s 60s style lace dress. Accessorising lace dresses with warm black opaque tights was quite a trend through spring but these Jonathan Aston Burlesque Midinet Tights give a lighter more summery look. They also give modern touch to a retro inspired outfit – pure 60s from head to toe can look a little much!

Fishnets also work with pretty pencil shirts and heels if you are looking for that Joan Holloway from Mad Men vibe so stock up on fishnets now to give your 60s and 70s inspired outfits a sexy and slightly modern edge.
