Gwen Stefani Brings Fishnets Back & Shows How To Rock Them Formally — PHOTOS
Let's just take a moment to pay some homage to Gwen Stefani and her impeccable off-kilter sense of style. Which is why when Gwen Stefani wore fishnets to Z100's Elvis Duran Morning Show in NYC, it seemed only fitting. After all, fishnets have long been a staple in her wardrobe, both in her No Doubt days and more recently, rocking them with shorts, skirts, and even on the Red Carpet.
With three older sisters with a penchant for alternative music, No Doubt was a staple in our household. More than that, Stefani was the ultimate style icon, with her bright blonde locks (shout out to her pink hair moment, though) crop tops, ties with bikini tops, and her array of colored lipsticks. I mean, she could not have been cooler. She's the reason that plaid is a necessity in my wardrobe these days.
As she grew older, Stefani may have ditched the crop tops, but she still kept her unique sense of style. Exaggerated silhouettes, bold colors, and wild patterns will always remain in her style DNA. On stage, though, she still rocks beaters, black denim, and metal suspenders. There's only a small handful of people that can rock a loose, matching sweatsuit with high top sneakers, and Stefani happens to be the ring leader of that group.
At Elvis Duran, Stefani wore a fishnet midi black dress layered over even more fishnet tights. To heighten the look even more, she paired it all with caged heels. Of course, she was in her iconic blonde bob and red wig. And may I just say, she looks fantastic. The saying "less is more" simply just doesn't apply to this chick, and she pulls it off well.
Fishnets have long been a way to add some edge to an outfit, but it's making a major comeback, from Kim Kardashian West rocking a fishnet turtleneck, to Rihanna baring all in a fishnet dress, to Taylor Swift's elegant silver netted gown at the 2014 Grammys. Basically, if you haven't jumped on this trend already, now's the time, with some of our favorite pieces, below.
