A hint of fishnet in your OOTD

I've never been the kind of person to show off my legs a lot. I choose pants over a dress any day. Even on formal occasions, I go for an elegant jumpsuit rather than to bare my legs. But lately, several trends have been encouraging me to show a bit more skin, going from jumper dresses with knee boots and now: fishnet stockings. I think it's the perfect accessory to wear day to night, and I'm happy to show you my own little twist on styling fishnet stockings (and still choosing pants over dresses, though).

In my opinion, I think fishnet works best with black-and-white and fabrics like plain cotton, wool and denim. I’d never wear them leg-long: either I’d style them like this and show a bit of my ankles, or I’d pair them with a skirt and over-the-knee boots. Just a little glance of a spicy stocking under your outfit is enough to give it that bit more.

For my OOTD, I thus like to keep it classy and professional with black suit pants and a white shirt. This is always a go-to outfit for me whenever I don't know what else to wear or if I just want to look really presentable, but really comfortable too. Especially when I style it with plain white trainers - which might sound a bit casual, but I think this looks incredibly effortless and elegant on women from all ages. To give it my own little spicy detail, I wear fishnet stockings underneath this because this makes it personal, trendy and playful, but still keeps my outfit in my favourite black-and-white scheme.

Another thing I love about this outfit is that it’s super easy to transition from outfit of the day to outfit of the night, by adding a high heel or a loafer instead of the trainers and wearing a playful scarf with the blouse or change it into a grungy band shirt.

Stockings and socks are such a little detail that can do a lot to your outfit. I love how they're a cheap and simple solution to spice up your daily wear. I shop my leg- and anklewear at Veritas because they always offer exactly what I'm looking for and what's in fashion, from their own brand INSUA but from other top quality brands such as Falke, Wolford and Cavallini as well.

Shop your own socks and stockings at Veritas in the near future to score some great promotions. In what's left of February, you can get a 50% discount on your second pantyhose from INSUA and enjoy a 2 + 1 on the INSUA socks in March.

And do let me know how you style your new legwear!
