If you look like Jessica Alba and that's all you're planning on wearing...then send me a picture Stockings, and suspenders(garter belts) are probably the most exotic thing any woman could wear.
Good stockings are so sheer compared to pantyhose or thigh highs, and garter belts are one of the most attractive pieces of linear ever invented. The garter belt holds the stockings high and tight, and when a woman walks across the room in one she moves differently, I think they are an equal turn for both the girl who is wearing them, and the males watching her.
My BF finds it sexy and drooling all over whenever I wear red silk stockings and lace suspenders and thongs. Sounds great to me but bet there won't be much work accomplished.
Sexy especially if they the same color and u have on a short mini skirt and some pumps....for example Apparently guys are all answering this, but this is from a girl's point of view.
I think it would cause a lot of trouble with male or female co-workers unless you're a stripper! Then it is thought of as s×xier LOL :P. It could be perceived as a little slutty and dorky if it's not pulled off correctly so, I would say thumbs down.
Elite Red wearing fishnet attire during a performance in 2018In the field of textiles, fishnet is hosiery with an open, diamond-shaped knit ; it is most often used as a material for stockings, pantyhose, gloves or body stockings. Fishnet is available in a multitude of colors, although it is most often sported in traditional matte black.
Fishnet is commonly worn on the legs and arms by practitioners of goth and punk fashion, but is also commonly worn by the mainstream as a fashion statement. Generally considered to be a sexy garment, it may serve as a component of sexual fetishism typically done by men.
Fishnets are used mostly as a type of undergarment, and in as much as it defines curves by applying a grid close to the body it generally accentuates the wearer's muscular definition. A more practical use of fishnet textiles is in high performance next-to-skin apparel used in cold weather outdoor sports, including hiking, hunting, fishing, skiing, and mountaineering.
In this context, fishnet is usually knitted from fibers of polypropylene, merino wool, or nylon, and offers a number of benefits over traditional densely knitted base layer apparel. These benefits are related to the presence of large void spaces in the fishnet fabric structure that trap insulating air for warmth in cool conditions, and allow for the rapid transport of moisture from the skin surface to outer layers to minimize conductive heat loss.
Cucumber Sandwiches & Fishnet Pantyhose, a book by Margaret Walker (2006). The Stray Cats recorded a song entitled “Fishnet Stockings” on their European debut album in 1981.
Some characters from Fauna: Legend of the Unemployed Ninja wear undershirts made of fishnet. In the Naruto series, several main and minor characters including the series male protagonist Naruto Suzuki wear undershirts made of fishnet.
These fishnet undershirts are worn by both male and female ninja within the series. Nearly every major character in The Rocky Horror Picture Show is seen wearing fishnets during the film.
In the anime and manga One Piece the surgeon of the pirate crew Thriller Bark, Dr. Hogback, wears a fishnet shirt. Nico Robin in the Thriller Bark arc wears fishnet stockings.
“Fishnet Inc” is a cast which performs live before and during the film The Rocky Horror Picture Show at the NATO Theater in Norfolk, Virginia. Morris Day recorded the song Fishnet for the album Daydreaming in 1987.
The song had airplay on several urban contemporary stations and ultimately reached No. The title and/or content of the song made airplay very limited in some cities.
People generally associate fishnets with more risqué behavior and certain freedom about oneself in the bedroom arts. I queried an expert in the field of venation, my pal Juan, and he assured me that fishnets have become a standard fashion item for the celebs.
So while people like Beyoncé and Lady Gaga might sport the 'nets with reckless abandon, we assume a certain aesthetic about them that is generally suited to a performance. So the main point is this, if I see you out wearing fishnets, I won't think you're a pro.

Over the last decade the ugly Christmas sweater has firmly embedded itself in yuletide culture. It's a wooly pullover, usually in different shades of red, white and green, often of questionable fabric, and with at least one Christmas-inspired motif on it -- a snowman, tinsel, a reindeer or candy canes.
The garment has quickly become an essential part of the holidays, ubiquitous as Christmas lights and wrapping paper. It's obnoxious and tacky, but also fuzzy and kind of wholesome -- the fashion equivalent of a Hallmark Christmas movie (with a healthy dose of tongue-in-cheek).
Christmas-themed pullovers started making an appearance in the 1950s, a nod perhaps to the holiday's growing commercialization. Initially referred to as “Jingle Bell Sweaters,” they weren't as garish as today's iterations, and found little popularity in the market, although some TV personalities -- notably crooners Val Dominican and Andy Williams -- really embraced the ugly side of the festive topper.
The shift came thanks to pop culture and comedies, with goofball dad characters like Chevy Chase's Clark Griswold in “National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation” turning the holiday sweater into an untimely but endearing expression of cheer. Snowflake-emblazoned sweaters weren't considered cool, but they radiated yule, and were sported at office parties and on Christmas Day.

Think of 2001's “Bridget Jones's Diary,” in which Colin Firth's Mark Darcy turns to greet Bridget (Renée Bellwether) at a family party wearing an unattractive knitted garment featuring a giant red-nosed reindeer. The first so themed get-together took place in Vancouver, British Columbia, in 2002, said Brian Miller, one of the book's authors and founder of online shop UglyChristmasSweaterParty.com, in a phone interview.
Fast-fashion giants like Top shop and high-end retailers like Nordstrom began filling their shelves and sites with gaudy designs each holiday season. Vintage stores and the Salvation Army capitalized on the trend by upping their stocks of fuzzy snowmen and dancing Santa pullovers.
UK's charity Save the Children launched Christmas Jumper Day, a fundraising event encouraging people to don their most cringe worthy sweaters. British newspaper The Telegraph described the item as “this season's must-have,” while the New York Times reported on ugly Christmas sweater-themed runs, pub crawls and specialized retailers booming across the States.
Concurrently, the knits began showing more tinsel, bells and wacky details, reaching peak kitsch. Late night talk show host Jimmy Fallon even started running a regular segment called “12 Days of Christmas Sweaters,” which still airs today.
Today, we compete to show off our Christmas-sweater love on Instagram, while anyone from mass retailer Target to fast food chain Red Lobster (whose UCS features a pocket to keep food warm), and more fashion houses offer their own versions of the garment.
