MESH IT UP

The sheer trend is still very much alive, but fashion has seen a transition from girly lace to sporty mesh. Once only associated with sports, and swimwear, we've been seeing mesh in tights, t-shirts, jumpsuits, and even evening dresses. This lightweight breathable material is the perfect combination of edge and style.
Working mesh into your wardrobe can be a little tricky. If the execution of this trend is done wrong you can go from chic, to raunch in an instant. Here's a few tips to help you mesh it up.
Remember "less is more".
Complimenting your mesh with a statement piece, like an embellished jacket or top is always a great idea, but be careful not to over accessorize, if you do the jacket and jewels will overpower the mesh.
Layering with mesh as I've done above is a great way to add texture to a monotone look. It also gives you innovative ways to incorporate your mesh into your wardrobe.

Metals & Metallics
Be bold with your mesh, don't be afraid to make a statement with accessories, metallics or bright colors. I chose silver as my metal of choice, the silver chain from my choker, flowed perfectly with the silver details of my jacket & shoes.
If you're looking for a different way to create a mesh look, try mesh footwear. This season we've seen booties, heels, and thigh high boots in mesh. Styled with solid colors they can create a bold fashion forward look.

For my mesh look I decided to layer. After days of rain we finally got back to sunny days here in San Diego, but there's still a lingering winter chill.
I wore a solid black one piece tank bodysuit from American Apparel, and layered it with a cap sleeve mesh dress from H&M. The mesh on this dress is tight and has a soft sheen, so to add more texture & a statement piece to my look I wore a black on black monogramed Gucci leather jacket, and black Chanel chain booties.
Please leave me a comment below and let me know your thoughts on my look, and tell me how you style your mesh can't wait to hear from you. As always thanks for reading!
