Granted mesh can look a little trashy, if not 80’s (think Madonna). However, if done properly (as in a little goes a long way) mesh can be surprisingly chic. Believe it or not Grace Kelly actually wore mesh in the 50’s. So when I saw the netted material on the Rebecca Taylor Spring runway, I wasn’t horrified. Then I started to notice it in the DKNY, Milly, Alexander Wang, Vera Wang and Gucci collections. So clearly mesh isn’t just for professional athletes. Wear a sheer mesh top over a fitted tee or tank and pair with a full midi skirt. Or stick to panels or hemlines of mesh on dresses, tops and skirts. I prefer my mesh in black and white, steering clear of neon hues to keep it a little more age appropriate. If the look isn’t for you, they try a mesh bag or shoes. Take a peek at the slide show above for some currently available mesh ideas.
