Call me old fashioned, but when I was a kid fishnets were worn by cocktail waitresses, with Halloween costumes when women chose to dress up like a sexy <fill in the blank>, or hookers. Don’t get me wrong, I love a good pair of fishnet stockings now. I appreciate the trend has evolved beyond sexy witch costumes and street walkers. I always choose fishnets over traditional pantyhose.
Regardless of how trend has evolved, that it has become more commonplace to wear a pair of fishnets just ’cause, I’m still a bit stymied by fishnets for kids, which can be found at WeLoveColors.com. A seasoned style expert I am, but I have never professed to be an aficionado of children’s styles, so maybe I am way out in Puritan-land here. Yet, when I think of fishnets, I think sexy, which is why I love wearing them as an adult. No matter what I am wearing, add a pair of fishnets and I suddenly feel seductive, feminine and notice that a bit of a swagger is developed once I strut around in them. Therefore, there is something, in my opinion, just a bit counterintuitive about slapping a pair of fishnets on a child. However, I also think about a punk side of fishnets, for kids, in particular, a Punky Brewster vibe, if you will. So, maybe I’m missing the point, entirely.
I’ll throw it out to you: Fishnets on children, yay or nay?
Oh, and I must add this photo for humor…A definite nay!
