Rihanna loves Fishnets!

levante_fishnetsRihanna is always unapologetic when it comes to her stunning outfit choices, and often they include one of our favourite wardrobe staples ? fishnets! We love how RiRi wears her foxy fishnets with monster levels of style.

On her way to the NYC nightspot, The Marquee, the fashion diva was recently photographed sauntering down the street in an R rated semi-sheer dark blue mini dress, black Louboutin heels and fishnets. And thanks to her (hopefully fake) brown mink coat and fishnets, RiRi was safe from the winter chill. Whilst, they?ll never rival 100 denier opaques for their warmth, fishnets do boast a small insulating factor, especially when woven with a layer of sheers.

Rihanna is not the only girl in the world who could pull off this look, to copy the Barbadian beauty?s style we recommend Levante Fishnet Tights. A classic pair of fishnets with medium size holes, providing you with sultry style. Without any visible reinforcement, you can feel free to flaunt any RiRi style super short hemlines you may desire.

Yet again the Umbrella hit maker brought out her fishnets for a different ensemble. This time matching fishnets with ripped jeans, she showed how it?s possible to combine two punk pieces for a dramatic effect. This look is perfect for those of you who wish to cover up a bit more. If a subtler look is what you?re after, then Jonathan Aston Micronet Tights are ideal. Woven with an additional layer of sheer fabric, these fishnets help to keep you warm during these freezing months.

Stockings: Through The Years

Rihanna rocks hers with just a t-shirt. Beyonce shows hers off on stage. Paris Hilton adores wearing mock versions of them. It seems no other style has come further in the hosiery world than stockings. Once used as a method to protect your modesty during the 19th century, stockings are now the finishing touch to any ensemble.

Craving a vintage backseam? A fan of fishnet stockings? Throughout the years, designers have played with new patterns and fabrics to bring you the latest trend to hit the catwalks and dominate the high streets. But where did it all begin?

Well, as it so happens, both men and women took a fancy to stockings before the introduction of trousers in the 18th century. After that, the demand was driven by females alone, as the Victorian era dictated that to flash a bit of ankle bordered on obscene! With the emphasis on functionality rather than fashion, stockings were to be hidden away under dresses and skirts, tucked into corners of the wardrobe.  

It was only after World War 1 that stockings became a little less about modesty and little more about style, as designers began to play with new shades and tones. By the 1920’s, the nations obsession with ankles had deteriorated and with this stockings developed a new found role – to decorate legs! With women encouraged to show off their pins, hosiery brands were forced to find newer and more exciting products to feed the ever expanding hunger – and this is exactly how nylon stockings came to fruition.

Invented in the UK but created across the pond in the USA, the stockings were given their name from the two locations – NY and LONdon (don’t say we never

teach you anything!). After going on sale in 1940, the nation managed to get their hands on over 64 million pairs within the year. And that’s a lot of nylon! With the arrival of the ultra stretchy Lycra in 1959, stockings took on a new lease of life, providing stretch and durability like never before. Our favourite Pretty Polly Nylons Tights were a direct result of this, and they continue to combine classic glamour with a gorgeous fit. Available in 9 different shades, there’s an option for every outfit and occasion, with a back seam version too for all those vintage enthusiasts.

Of course, the obsession with mini-skirts and risqué hemlines soon impacted the demand for stockings in the 60s, as tights began to take over in the hosiery race. Thankfully, it appears that this hasn’t dampened our desire for stockings at all, as the nation still relies on the style to deliver allure and comfort time after time. And for those who crave a little more

Rihanna Goes Out In Her Underwear… Again

Another day, another bare all look for Rihanna, who stepped out in this revealing ensemble last night following her X Factor performance.

Teaming black hold ups (the exact ones she’s wearing are the Wolford Velvet de Luxe 50 Hold Ups, by the way!)with an, if anything, overdressed top half, Rihanna rocked an oversized white jumper and denim jacket combo with fluoro trainers and a Where’s Wally bobble hat. She was – we think – at least wearing shorts underneath, as appeared in the semi naked photo she tweeted of herself getting changed after the show.

Want the look? Try the Falke Pure Matt 50D Hold Ups in black with basically the scruffiest thing you can find in your wardrobe. Layer on your top half to balance out the amount of leg on show (and to keep you warm – it is almost December after all!)

Alternatively, you could follow her lead from earlier on in the evening, when she wore a high necked, floor length black gown to perform in. Very demure – or it would have been if it weren’t for the wide lace panels either side which ran the length of the dress and made the wearing of underwear unlikely.

Lace is everywhere at the moment – the very brave should try the Emilio Cavallini Lace Bodystocking over a black vest and shorts; but if you just want a touch of lace to add a sexy, feminine edge to your look check out our selection of lace tights. Our favourites at the moment are the Pretty Polly Lace Secret Slimmer Tights, which come with a sturdy boxer brief and control top for

ultimate slimming properties, and the Oroblu Caroline Ankle Highs which you can wear on their own with heels and pumps or under skinny jeans for a flash of lace as you walk.

Rihanna's Daring New Shorts

Last weekend, the Hackney music festival was held in East London. Musical artists such as Ed Sheeran, David Guetta, and Jessie J gathered to perform in front of thousands of screaming fans. Although music was the focus of the weekend, festival fashion is always a hot topic. This time the style debate was on whether Rihanna’s Jonathan Aston fishnet shorts were trendy or trashy. Rihanna paired her shorts with leather hot-pants, a leopard printed shirt and a gold detailed leather jacket, exuding an urban cool vibe.
Rihanna’s exact look should probably stay on the stage, but as usual she is always sporting the latest trends. The cycling shorts look has resurfaced this summer, seen on celebrities such as Alexa Chung and Little Mix. This style can be quite flexible, layering lace shorts under skirts or satin shorts are girly and more conservative, while fishnet, patterned, or bright colour shorts radiate more of a relaxed urban vibe.
This is a fun trend to play around with, but is not for those not

willing to experiment. If you want to be a bit edgy, try Jonathan Aston’s Opaque Shorts underneath a short dress or long tee. If your style is more classic, wear Jonathan Aston’s Lace Shorts layered underneath a mini skirt, tight at night or full during the day.
Another fun way to wear cycling shorts is to layer them over your favourite tights and pairing them with a boyfriend blazer or long sweater, changing up the look of both the shorts and tights. Overall, cycling shorts are actually easy to layer and quite versatile. They are great to avoid a wardrobe malfunction with those slightly too short shorts and skirts and they provide an inexpensive way to perk up an outfit.
At first this look may seem hard to pull off every day, but really it is quite wearable for everyone. If you are looking to mix up your style and try something different, throw on a pair of cycling shorts underneath a typical outfit and you have a fresh new look. Just please wear shorts longer than Rihanna’s!

Who wore it best: Madonna vs. Ashley Greene

Gym-honed and wrinkle free she may be, but Madonna has received criticism for flouncing around on stage in teeny tiny hotpants and fishnet tights. The singer, 53, has embarked on her MDNA tour wearing outfits that are reminiscent of her heyday in the 80s – though some have (somewhat unkindly) pointed out that as she was (at most) only 32 then, perhaps she should be considering a more age appropriate outfit.

Across town, youth had it say in the shape of Ashley Greene who was snapped on the set of her new show, Americana, in New York. Teaming a pretty patterned yellow dress with buy viagra while overseas a hoody, slouchy boots and black fishnet tights, she showed how to rock fishnets in laid back daytime style.

Fishnets are having a moment right now and, as Ashley and Madonna prove, there

are no rules when it comes to how you wear them. Try coloured fishnets for a fresh, summery vibe – they look great with white cotton dresses when the sun is shining. Or try nude fishnets, which have a legion of celebrity fans including Rihanna and the Saturdays, who wore fishnet tights supplied by on their amazing tour.

Classic black fishnet stockings will never go out of style – if you’re worried that wearing them with hotpants and armwarmers (à la Madonna) might not look quite so good when you’re shopping in the supermarket as they do when you performing on stage in front of thousands of people, try wearing them with longer line knee length skirts and boots so you just get a glimpse of net as you walk.

What do you think of Madonna’s look? Should she be leaving it to the younger generation like Ashley, or is she simply showing off her hard worked for figure?

Rihanna, Queen of Hosiery

We couldn’t help but notice that Rihanna has been seen out and about A LOT recently in some mind blowing hosiery. From working the sports luxe look in some cute fishnet socks to sporting super glam bondage style tights, she’s been rocking some amazing styles. Here’s a round up of our favourites…

Fishnet Socks

Rihanna was spotted celebrating her Brits win in Mahiki nightclub wearing fishnet socks just like the new Henry Holland Fishnet Anklets with pointy blue heels and a bright yellow/green playsuit. As with most of Rihanna’s looks, on paper it just shouldn’t work and yet somehow it does! She finished the look with some huge futuristic sunglasses and a long gold necklace. She has also worn fishnet tights on several occasions, including black and nude versions while performing as well as seamed fishnet tights at V festival in the summer!

Luxury Basics

Rihanna has also been seen in several styles of luxury basics. Last month she performed at the Grammy’s in a pair of Falke Pure Matt 50 Tights which kept the rest of her look (leather shorts, a mesh crop top and wild hair) chic rather than trashy. In the same month she also tried the Wolford Velvet de Luxe 66 which she wore out and about in London. Stepping out to dinner in an unusually demure outfit, she teamed her black opaques with denim cut offs, a black polo neck and grey blazer, finishing with lots of chunky gold jewellery to complete the super luxe feel. Getting your basics from high end brands like Falke and Wolford can be cost-effective as they tend to last longer and be more durable, and especially if you wear tights on a regular basis they are definitely worth investing in.

Red Or Black?

Both, if you’re Rihanna. The singer stepped out in a pair of her trademark denim hotpants which allowed everyone to see her black stockings with red suspender strap combo. You can get the look with our range of stockings and a suspender belt such as the Jonathan

Aston style which is available in scarlet. If you’re not used to stockings or simply find them difficult to wear all day, check out the Pretty Polly Pretty Braced Suspender Tights – the traditional suspender tights design with a red mock suspender strap.


Following on from the massive success of website Wolford’s bondage tights which were an instant sell out when Cheryl Cole wore them back in 2010, Rihanna sparked a frenzy recently when she was snapped wearing a pair of bondage tights. While the exact style she wore have now sold out, you can still get the look – try the Wolford Captivate tights or, for a cheaper alternative, take a look at the Pamela Mann Straparound tights. Although Rihanna gets away with teaming the tights with a baseball cap, oversized denim jacket and high heeled boots, we recommend trying them with a pretty summer dress or structured shift to balance the look out.


Of course, if you find most of Rihanna’s outfits tricky to pull off, there’s still the classic look to fall back on that anyone can work – suspender tights. This classic design shows no sign of slowing down or going away just yet, with new celebrity converts swelling the ranks every day, from Made in Chelsea’s Caggie Dunlop to society heiress Paris Hilton. These are so easy to wear and go with everything – from tailored shorts and silky blouses to slouchy t-shirt dresses.

With so many looks to choose from it’s never been easier to get a slice of the pop princess’ style. Whether you want some super luxe opaques for daytime in the office or something straight from the catwalk, take a look at the selection of Rihanna Tights and get the look today!
