Mesh!

This is the season where fish – net, sporty mesh and open weave knits were the talk of the town among fashionistas. What do you think about this trend? Is it a hit or a miss? Would you like to sport these skimpy pieces? What would you team them with? Let me tell you what I think along with the runway dish.

I have been going crazy over mesh tops this summer. I have a cute off – white, over – sized sleeveless one and a distressed white off – shoulder one and the hunt is still on! Mesh is a huge trend for spring summer 2012. I think all the designers are as fascinated by it as I am. If you think about it, there is nothing great about perforated fabric but it is the subtle rawness is generously lends to a garment which appeals to me. Taking you straight to the runway!

1. Alexander Wang

Alexander Wang’s mesh creations were sporty and tom – boyish. They look good as a sportswear look, but one can do wonders with each separate if styled with different pieces correctly. I would love to team a mesh hoodie with a bright coloured singlet to wear with skinny jeans and heels in a contrasting colour. That would be a pretty cool casual look.

2. Cynthia Rowley

Cynthia Rowley on the other hand did something girly with the trend. I love, love, love the dresses in her collection. The mesh adds something special to the little black dress. The purple mesh top would look great tucked into a high waist skirt. I like the freedom this trend gives us to mix and match and create the perfect look!

3. Emilio Pucci

Peter Dundas showcases mesh in a sexy light. This is definitely not for faint at heart. You’ve got to have guts, courage, a great body and the willingness to take risks. OR you could just invest in some lining. The choice is yours! 🙂

4. House of Holland
Mesh tops look great when layered with the right clothes. Henry Holland shows us how by teaming up candy – coloured pieces and plaid. If showing off your bra is too risqué for you, either button up or wear a singlet inside.

Nicole Farhi does mesh beautifully. I am doting on the cutesy tops in her collection. The colours are yummy too! Would love to own these pieces!


Mesh can be pretty tricky to pull off. It sometimes goes a bit towards trashy. You’ve got to be really smart when styling to incorporate this trend. Try to keep the bottom covered if you’re planning on being bold with the top and vice versa. Nobody wants to look anything other than classy and fabulous. So do take care of that!

Singlets, spaghettis, racer back tops and tubes can be fun t o wear inside a meshy, distressed top. Go for a matching colour or a contrasting one. You can also team a mesh top with a plain or printed jacket, it looks great when layered. It is also great to keep one handy in this summer, it is perfect to wear when temperatures rise. I would also love to wear an over – sized off shoulder mesh top over a swimsuit at the beach. I think it would make a sexy cover up. So have fun with it because this sure is a fun trend! So don’t be shy, after all fashion is all about breaking rules and taking chances. Just make sure you dress according to your personality and rock whatever you wear!

I would love to know about your experiments as well… 🙂
