Fashion loves playing with transparency, and of all the spring trends, mesh is the sportiest and the spiciest.
As far as fabrics go, mesh is just as swaggy on a paneled skin-tight dress with a sweetheart neckline than it is on some basketball shorts. People who have incorporated mesh-forward outfits into their wardrobe successfully: 1) Rihanna in the mesh top at the Met Gala after party, you know the t-shirt she wore braless and then her nipples made Balmain’s show notes. After all, she is the only girl int he world. 2) Nina Simone in flare pants in the ’60s. And 3) you once spring officially starts. We’ve seen mesh dressing on runways from Versace to DKNY, followed inevitably by ASOS Curve and Simply Be. And that’s the good news, because can afford to brings sexy back in breathable, street-friendly mesh.
