Fashion Talk Friday: All About that MESH

mesh 1

Fashion Talk Friday is back! This time I wanted to talk about a trend that has been around for about a year but hasn’t been fully tamped into. More and more people have been wearing it. You guessed it…mesh!! This may seem like a trend that should have stayed behind back in the day but it’s one that has comeback with fierceness and will be sticking around from now on until most likely after this upcoming spring and summer seasons. I wouldn’t be surprised if you were to see mesh detailing,perforated mesh, play on textures and garments at highly anticipated fashion shows of New York Fashion week. The New York Fashion Week begins soon in February, don’t be caught out of the loop gals. This fabric is very versatile and can be incorporated in a lot of different clothing. Whether your working out, looking for a cute office outfit or going out with the girls you will be able to utilize this trend to your needs. If you thought this trend would only work for warmer whether you might have been right but then again fashion and style is all about pushing boundaries and now a days anything is possible with enough innovative thinking. This trend can and will work in winter weather as well. Don’t believe me? Keep reading to find out. Some ways you can wear it is by laying pieces underneath it, wearing big warm coats over it, or in a perforated style (thicker mesh). Rita Ora even posted to her Instagram these photos below about 8 months ago showing off her collaboration with Adidas with a mesh detailed  hoodie and sweats.

A lot of collections have featured mesh and plenty of celebrities have rocked looks with mesh pieces of clothing.

This look is here to stay, I would catch on to this and rock my ass off out doing all the other basic bitches out there. Even Queen B and her sis as seen below have rocked this trend along with the likes of fashionistas like Alexa Chung, Rita Ora, Bad girl “riri” Rihanna and the Jenner sisters. This trend is steppin up…so why don’t you too?

This white two piece ensemble is so perf! Gotta love the chic perforated mesh detailing.

rihanna

Everyone remembers last year when Rihanna went to Paris Fashion week. She definitely helped build the mesh trend and caused a scene in this top with no bra underneath. Are you willing to try the daring look out? …or maybe stick with a bralette under.

Rita Ora looks stunningly hardcore in this completely mesh skirt. Can you say DAMNNN?!
