The "Odd" Outfit Combination That's Huge Right Now

Every so often, a trend materializes that shouldn't work but somehow wins all of our hearts. We can’t quite pinpoint exactly where it came from, but suddenly it’s a favorite of every It girl. Lately, there’s one such seemingly odd combination that we’ve had our eyes on: jeans worn with fishnet tights underneath. Since we first saw its rise being last fall, the combination has cropped up on the streets during fashion week and also become a regular fixture in our Instagram and Pinterest feeds.

Feeling intimidated by the trend? The key is finding the right pair of jeans to pull it off. Avoid anything too tight that might make layering uncomfortable. Cropped bottoms and distressing are ideal because they allow the tights to peek through (which is the point of wearing them together!). Curious to see how It girls are wearing this outfit combination?

Read on for some major inspiration, and then do a little shopping to give the combo a spin yourself!
