Trends My Mom Hates: Fishnets

Jacket - H&M | Dress - Forever 21 | Shirt - Boohoo | Boots - Asos | Tights - Asos | Bag - Oasis | Belt - Target

Alright, too be perfectly honest, I'm not entirely sure if this is a trend that my mom hates since I no longer see her everyday.  That being said, knowing her for almost 20 years, I can almost guarantee that she probably doesn't care for it.  When I first saw the trend myself a few months back on instagram, I wasn't entirely sold on it either.  But some of my friends based in New York were really rocking it, then I moved to London and a few of my new friends here have worn them as well.  I still wasn't sure on it, but then I actually needed to buy them for a school project I was working on (yes, really).  Once they were in my hand, I knew that I just had to try the trend too, and what do you know?  I kinda loved it.  They're surprisingly comfortable and kept my legs warmer than I thought they would.  Unfortunately, they already have a hole in the toe after only one and a half wears (the half a wear is from my project), but I'm going to try and keep wearing them until they get too uncomfortable on the toes.
For this look, I really wanted to incorporate my new leather jacket.  Is it really leather?  Definitely not; I got it from H&M for £20 (I got it for half price - score!).  However, I'm in love with it and can't take it off.  Because it's nearing winter, I paired the jacket and tights with short-sleeved denim dress with a turtleneck layered underneath for an extra bit of warmth.  Finally I decided on my new Chelsea boots, as they're a classic that can be paired with almost anything.  I wanted to go rather subtle when styling these fishnets because they can easily go very racy - a look I would like to avoid.
In other news, I hope everyone had a nice Thanksgiving yesterday.  Since I'm London, I didn't really celebrate it, but I am having a Friends-giving tonight that I'm really looking forward to.  It's been a lot of fun introducing my new English friends to American traditions.
