Mesh Magic: The Only Sheer Trend You Should Sport This Season
Whenever there is a certain trend bubbling you can be sure to find it on our feed, so when mesh and its many trendy variants started appearing everywhere, we started taking notice! Sheer is clearly in this season but we’re loving this inclusion of the otherwise sporty fabric in rather chic ways.
The fashion history of mesh dates back to the beloved ’90s when wearing a mesh shirt over a spaghetti strapped tank was a thing and is now serving a similarly trendy purpose. The sheer fabric started making a resurgence around last year in the form of fishnet mesh leggings peeping through the knee ripped boyfriend jeans and pretty soon made it to the Fall runways with Anthony Vaccarello, Opening Ceremony and Mulberry creating a delectable mish-mash with mesh. Today, mesh is not only a major part of the athleisure wardrobe but also with tops, bomber jackets and overlay dresses, some of them even bedecked with floral patch embroidery that makes for a very punk-chic look.
Lucky for you, the material is light, airy and ideal for warmer days. One of the best ways in which you can sport this trend is by taking it slow — attempt your first steps with a pair of mesh insert yoga pants to team it with high-low tops and sneakers or you could simply opt for a mesh insert jumpsuit to wear over your best shorts. Once you begin to get comfortable with the look, get ready to go all-out and bring out your best undergarments to be shown underneath head-to-toe mesh, this could be strappy sports bra or bikini. A little less revealing but still flirty option is to pair a sheer top with jeans and just show off your best bralette but matching it to the same shade as the mesh — FYI mesh isn’t just available in black! If you feel modest is the best way to go you can always rock the ’90s trend of long sleeved shirts under cami dresses, except instead of a shirt, you would be opting for a mesh concoction. The resulting look can be extremely gothic chic especially when accessorised with a choker, chain cross body bag and flatform sandals.
