Fishnets: Hooker vs. Cool?

Obviously, anything Rihanna rocks is cool...but it can't be rocked by all. I don't suggest putting on a wide-brimmed baseball cap backwards over a fishnet veil to contrast a cherry red pout if you're a member of the G.P. (general public), but there are plenty of other ways to wear fishnet that are totally doable. 

To walk the thin line gracefully between hooker and cool, take my advice.

Check it...

1. Fishnet Louboutins: I'm loving this pair of fishnet Christian Louboutins. Perfect to pair with a killer Givenchy leather pant or an Audrey-esque, cropped at the ankle, silk trouser. The added embellishment at the toe really accents this pair, and is surprisingly extremely flattering and lengthening compared to just a plain pump.

2. Chained Fishnet: Can we really quick discuss how amazingly Marc Jacobs pulled off this bag? I mean, perfect edge, perfect shape, cool chain...this is by far one of his best creations in the handbag department. Wearing this bag with a fishnet glove is a little extreme, but hey, go for it. After all, you saw it on the runway first.

3. Fishnet and Mediums: This conservative spin on a very tiny fishnet, embellished, and mixed with other mediums (velvet, leather, and strategic seams) makes this couture piece a stunner. Obviously, thought of by Saint Laurent. The addition of pearls classes up the fishnet and gives it a Pretty Woman spin from La Brea to Rodeo.

4. Fishnet Combat: Not to be repetitive, but while we're on the subject of Saint Laurent, the above is a pair of my very favorite boots. I absolutely love the matte leather look with embellishments paired together perfectly with a textured fishnet. Rich.

5. Balmain Exception: Ok, this look is totally hooker status...but it's the exception since it's Balmain. I absolutely love the look of the 80's acid wash denim shorts with the embellished vest and white tee. How easy would this be to recreate? Except, you're not allowed. Only if it's Balmain.

*Moral of the Story: Embellish.
