This S/S '19 Trend Is The Only Fishy Business We're All In On

Not too fishy for our taste.

Long gone are the days where fishnet, in the context of garments, is only associated with the netted hosiery. The diamond-shaped pattern was taken to the next level on the runways of Ports 1961, JW Anderson and Richard Malone — used both as an overlay and on its own during Spring/Summer ’19. The result: quirky pieces with an haute bohemian air.


Above, our favourite pieces to shop now.

Dress with mesh texture details, S$69.90 from Zara
Finishing just above the ankles, Zara serves up the perfect desk to drinks ensemble that needs little else but a pair of dangly earrings. Dries Van Noten beaded tulle top, US$633.74 from Net-a-Porter
This beige tulle top will look great over a bikini or a pretty bralet. The mesh has been embroidered with white beads and sequins, offering the netting a delicate touch. Mesh textured skirt, S$59.90 from Zara
Spice up your pencil skirt rotation with this mesh overlay and fringe hem rendition. Francesco Russo net sandals, S$1,224 from Farfetch
Made from 100 per cent leather, these gold net sandals are fab for hot summer days in the sunshine — whether you’re on vacation or just chilling in tropical Singapore. While you’re at it, make sure you have a basket bag to round up the look. Oscar de la Renta net-paneled silk-satin midi dress, US$1,350 from Net-a-Porter
This dress, a composite of silk and satin in forest green, features netting on the chest area and lower hemline. Sitting pretty at a midi length and sporting a cinched waistline, its elegant silhouette makes it a great go-to ensemble for a wedding dinner. Calvin Klein fringed netted midi dress, S$2,353 from Farfetch
Sure, it’s not quite suitable for Monday morning at the office — but live a little. This bold, bright and slightly bizarre dress in a cotton and wool mix was inspired by the stark contrast of American horror story with the American dream. Genius.   By Malene Birger Dry Desert satin-trimmed cutout jersey maxi dress, US$409.24 from Net-a-Porter.
Made from soft cream and black jersey, this slip-on summer dress is an easy buy for Singapore’s hot climate. It hits the boho vibe but still delivers an air of sophisticated style — especially when paired with some black slides. Staud Moreau macrame and leather bucket bag, US$347.38 from Net-a-Porter
This bag hits two trends in one go — the (still ongoing) bucket bag trend and the netting one too. We love that the handle and inner rim is made of a gorgeous cow leather, which ups its elegance, whilst the exterior is a tactile macrame.
