Mosquito Net Pants Are Clearly This Season's Hottest Look

We know. You traveling fashionistas are struggling with this whole no-white-after-Labor-Day thing.

But good news! Mosquitoes practically never go out of style. In many regions, they buzz around our patios until the first freeze. In others, they hang out all year round.

Mosquito net pants became popular on the web this week, popping up on a number of websites as if they were some edgy new look. However, the truth is mosquito net pants, hats, shirts and mittens have been spicing up vacation wardrobes for years.

When visiting tropical areas, wearing a net or bug repellent could help you avoid mosquito-borne diseases like malaria or yellow fever. You should consider packing mosquito net gear for warm, wet destinations, like Laos or the Caribbean.

But you can also just wear it around your house, because it IS that chic.
