Mesh accents are a great way to work a little extra sex appeal into your look. Lace, see-through and a whole slew of sheer fabrics have become super popular recently and mesh is just another part of this rising trend.  In the 80’s and 90’s the word “mesh” was associated with muscle bound men in really taste-less tank tops, but this year is all about pairing mesh with sophisticated pieces to soften the overall vibe of the fabric. There are a few different ways you can rock this trend, you can chose anything from net fabrics to open weave knits, there are plenty of different styles to choose from which makes it easy to find the right look for you.

If you want to opt for a somewhat sporty, tomboyish version of the mesh trend we suggest looking for feminine sportswear pieces with mesh accents.  Things like jackets, cropped trousers and tennis inspired skirts would all be perfect. Alexander Wang favored this style at one of his most recent runways shows and we love how the sexy mesh softens the tomboy-ish elements of the sportswear pieces.  If you wanted to rock this style in a flirty and subtle way you could opt for mesh clothing in light bright colors like mint, peach or marigold yellow.  Any of these colors would be perfect from spring and add a feminine touch to the trend.


Try The Trend Tips

Mesh is a trend that we think is worth giving a try this year, to help you master this style here are a few key tips to remember.

Mesh can go from tasteful to tacky in an instant, so make sure to keep the rest of your outfit subtle and avoid any super outlandish pieces when trying to find something to pair with mesh.

Mesh shoes are another great way to rock this trend, opt for mesh inspired ankle boots for a unique and rocker chic look.
