Fishnet tights are out of fashion, and they should be out of your drawers too. It’s time you swap the fishnets for dots and start wearing polka dots tights instead. Either all in black or in colour, with heels or white ugly sneakers, with a dress or mini skirt. Polka dot tights are the only tights you should even think about this season. And there’s a good reason why.
Sorry but not sorry to tell you your favourite tights are out of fashion for spring summer 2018. I really thought you were on board with the latest fashion trends. I mean I did mention fishnets are not in fashion anymore in my SS 2018 Fashion Report over here. And yet I keep seeing you coming on Brunette from Wall Street after googling how to style the fishnet tights.
Anyway, let me repeat once again, fishnet tights are not in style in 2018 anymore. Like that we are going to miss the nets. I surely won’t as there are far chicer tights in style right now. Yes, the polka dot tights.
FASHIONISTA’S FAVORITE TIGHTS FOR SPRING 2018
Following the polka dot print trend, seeing polka dot tights everywhere shouldn’t be a surprise at all. Yes, we swap the nets for polka dots this season, and I couldn’t be happier about it. I mean let’s be honest, wearing fishnet tights, unless the one I wore over here that are actually double tights, is rather uncomfortable. Especially if your legs tend to get swollen after hours. Not mentioning cold. Surely cold is not a problem in spring, yet everything else is. Not mentioning finding a pair that fits your size.
Whatsoever we won’t have any of those problems this season. The most fashionable tights at the moment, the polka dots tights are not only easy to find and easy to wear but also easy to style. No wonders why polka dot tights are fashionista’s favourites. Just check Instagram and scroll down the Insta feed of your favourite girls. Every fashion gal, from Chiara to me, wears polka dots tights this season. Preferably black for a day out, you know for a date with your girl friends that doesn’t end until the next morning. Or in sorbet shades to match the dots on the polka dot dress.
HOW TO STYLE POLKA DOT TIGHTS
As said, the polka dot tights are easy to wear. I mean you can even wear them for work if you are not obliged to dress up to the business code. Whereas the fishnets that are good only for the street or club.
Anyway, polka dot tights are quite easy to style too. Unfortunately, the emphasis is on the quite. But hey, we are not talking about the sheer nude tights after all. Still with this adverb or not, once you learn my tips and see how good polka dot tights go with any spring summer 2018 fashion trend, you will totally forget about the nets too. That is if you haven’t ditched all the fishnets already.
So how to style the polka dot tights then? Quite easy. Depending on what colour your polka dot tights are. Anyway, before we check my tips for styling the polka dot tights, we must have a quick stop at my chic outfit. All in black with a dash of ugly white this time. Well, should rather write again. Remember how I wore this outfit for Paris Fashion week last year (refresh your memory here)? Only with the fishnet tights then.
Oh about what I meant with the dash of ugly. Slightly overreacting, it’s not so ugly to be exact. I mean as much as I dislike these sneakers, yes I came to dislike them now (ps. keep reading to find out why), these sneakers aren’t the ugly sneakers at the end of the day.

MY CHIC DAY OUT OUTFIT
I guess I should mention when I wore this outfit first, right? I wore this chic black and white outfit for a day out (read from moring to the next morning) with my girls. And yes, the morning was quite cold, so the black polka dot tights were a must. Just like this chic black cape.
CAPE FOR SPRING, WHY YES
It seems quite long time since I wore the cape, doesn’t it? Well for you at least. I have been wearing it on repeat this spring actually. While the mornings are still cold and it doesn’t get warm until the noon when the sun shows up, and you instantly feel so hot, a cape is the best choice. If hot you merely move your hands from under the cape and problem solved. That is if you are not wearing layers of clothes under the cape of course.
Ha, seems like I should add the cape as another alternative to my previous blog post on what to wear if you hate wearing layers. Haven’t read it yet? Be sure to check it over here. Especially if you are looking for a cool casual spring outfit.
Anyway, back to this black and white chic outfit. Guess what? This is the best time to buy a cape. Ps. Sharing why and where in my shopping tips next Tuesday. Anyhow, you can shop a similar cape from RED Valentino for a half of the price over here, or slightly more pricey match over here. My Escada cape is unfortunately already sold out.
I probably don’t even need to say a mini skirt is my number one choice when it comes to the skirts in 2018, do I? Of course, I haven’t ditched the non-mini skirts together with those tights (what tights? see we can’t even remember them anymore) out of my closet. But still, I don’t keep them that close anymore. Well unless they have pleats or are super tight like a pencil. You know what I mean.
So where to get this skirt that I’m wearing? Good news, almost anywhere. You can shop this basic black mini skirt in almost any shop this season. I told you mini skirts are in fashion. Nevertheless, you might want to check twice or click on my links, to find the best black mini skirts. The black mini skirts that won’t look cheap or even worse actually rip when you are fulling around with your girls. Find my favourite mini black skirt on the budget over here and a slightly more expensive, but far better in quality, one here. Ps. It’s from Victoria Victoria Beckham and it can be yours for 374 EUR which is a bargain for Beckham.
NOT SO UGLY WHITE SNEAKERS
Now to the sneakers. And why I all the sudden started to dislike them. To be exact not all the sudden at all. I wrote before, over here and here, I keep stumbling in these white sneakers. Still, it turned out that it’s either just me or just this pair of Diesel sneakers that I own. My sister got these white sneakers too, and she loves them. They fit her perfectly, she hasn’t got any blisters not even once, and she swears that these are her most comfortable city sneakers ever.
Not sure what to think about them anymore. I mean they are so easy to style, go well with everything, but I keep stumbling when wearing them. Surely, this happens to me always when wearing flats. But you know, these are the sneakers. Ps. Let me know if you happen to have them and how you feel about these Diesel sneakers in the comments below. If you want to give them a try like my sister and me, you can shop them here.
BLACK DOTTED TIGHTS
Finally, the black polka dot tights. You know when I said, the polka dot tights are easy to get? Seems like I was wrong. Those tights are selling out so quickly. You should feel lucky to spot them at all. Even if not in your size. Not to say anything else, I had to dig all around the web to find these black polka dot tights for you. And some coorful polka dot tights too. Check them in the gallery below.
ACCESSORIES AND MAKEUP
Wait, who cares about the accessories when you wear polka dots? And the makeup should be nude this season anyway. Still, for a day out with your friends that might end out as a night out with your chic squad, you will need these. Just to make sure your hair and makeup stay the same all day and night long. And the next morning.
Ps. If you are looking for a foundation that would last for hours, be sure to use Giorgio Armani Power Fabric (shop here). If you want your skin to look as radiant as mine, then go for Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk foundation (get it here). Or mix them both.
THE FASHIONABLE WAY TO STYLE POLKA DOT TIGHTS
Finally my tips on how to style black polka dot tights. Actually, how to style any polka dot tights. Even though you can’t go wrong with the black polka dot tights, you should definitely try colourful polka dot tights too. Although I must warn you white dotted tights are for little girls if you don’t wear them right. Still, I’m sure you can pull off some colourful polka dots when following these tips with ease.
There are actually only 3 tips I have for you. Yes, it’s really that easy to style polka dot tights.
#1 MATCH THE PRINT
This one is actually the safest way to style dotted tights. Style your polka dot tights with more dots. Wear dotted tights under a polka dot dress. Just make sure you keep everything else minimal. Make sure you don’t also put on the round sunglasses or grab a round bag when you leave your home. Too many dots is too many.
#2 WEAR THEM WITH THE SANDALS
From the safest straight to the most fashionable yet risky way to style the polka dot tights. Wear your dotted tights with simple sandals. Stuart Weitzman Nudist sandals are the best choice in my opinion. Or at least sandals that look alike that sandal staple. Remember how I pulled off this look for a night out? Be sure to check it over here.
#3 WEAR IT WITH THE BASICS
If you can’t follow my first two tips, then there is also the basic way to wear polka dot tights. The one I’m wearing today. I guess this one is the best for the start as it’s simple and chic. Plus French girls love it. So what are the basics you should wear your dotted tights with? Minimal basic sneakers (the ugly sneaker would be too much this time), or 10 cm high stiletto pumps that match the colour of your tights. Make sure you don’t wear more than two colours though.
MORE FASHION MORE TIGHTS
Just to remind you again, fishnet tights are out of fashion. Forget the fishnets. There are new tights we are wearing now. The polka dot tights. In short, dotted tights are the fashion tights to wear for spring summer 2018. So swipe back up and get your dotted tights now. I need to get those sheer tights with black dots too. And the pink dotted tights. By the way, have you thrown the fishnets out of your closet already?
