WHY MESH IS THE COOLEST RIGHT NOW
By Maybelle Morgan, 22 August 2017
If you’re a) bored of lace and b) want something edgier than sheer, then mesh is making its way out of the hosiery department and straight to your upper half. Yep, it’s a dare-to-bare situation with a hint of goth that's perfect for adding uncompromising texture to any outfit.
At Versace, the mesh matched the attitude as models stormed down the catwalk for AW17 in punked-up, layered mini dresses. Just a peek of fishnet underlay added some see-through sass and, with all-black everything (plus lashings of eye lacquer), the message was loud and clear. Don’t mess.
Want to dabble without going the whole nine yards? ASOS Insider Astrid makes black mesh your new holiday style priority, by toning down the goth with a mishmash of styles. A metallic star emblazoned bralet peeking out from underneath the net ups the fun, while a silver mini gives it a spacey feel. Add high-top skate sneaks to finish off the look with a casj-cool element.
Try it on
You know when Scandi-fave Weekday takes on the mesh trend, it’s going to be a very sleek affair. The knuckle-grazing sleeves and high-neck add a dressier angle, so pair with white mom jeans and studded sliders for a grungy dinner getup. Or, layer under a pinstripe blazer and let the mesh neck peek out.
