The Mesh Dress

September 9, 2018

One of the most interesting trends of the recent times that has fascinated me way too much is the mesh trend. I am completely in awe of this trend from the 90s. I am a 90s teen!! Though I think I may have overdone it by picking up too many mesh dresses. I realized that it can be very tricky to wear and it is not something I would wear very often. If not worn right, mesh can be a mess. Browsing through the websites of various online retailers, I have often spotted mesh being worn as an overlay on t-shirts and basic outfits including denims. So I felt the safest bet would be to wear the most basic of all outfits underneath one of my favorite picks, a black mesh midi dress from H&M. I picked it up during sale few months ago and it stayed inside the closet simply for the want of the right styling tip.

Coming back to the outfit, I wanted to create something very casual with basic black spaghetti and black distressed high waist shorts. These shorts have a unique v-shape to it which made the whole outfit very alluring but surely made me very confident to carry it around. Once I felt comfy with the basics, I simply slipped into the mesh dress without much hassle. The outfit however still didn’t feel complete without a bit of layering which adds the mystery while still showing off a little. I created two looks: one with a red trench and one with a light denim vest. Red and black go really well and I frankly did not give much thought to this look as I just added the perfect hand bag in dark brown. A red trench is absolutely eternal and can be combined with anything. For the other look, the leather shoulder bag looked just fine. Since I am still experimenting, I am mostly associating mesh with a night out and hence going for a pair of sturdy leather boots as it automatically ups the style quotient. I don’t accessorize too much so simply stuck to stack of bracelets which had a slight grunge feel to it. I finished the look with a multi layered metal necklace to add some sparkly details to the outfit.

So like I said, it is going to be tricky to wear a transparent outfit, but I guess one has to be creative and a little daring. Overall, the look was quite sporty, chic and super feminine just like I prefer and with this post I am trying to create a doable street style as this trend is here to stay. I am hoping to devise more ways to make mesh more wearable in the future. Till then, I hope this one is making sense.

I am wearing-

Lulu & Sky shorts: Promod spaghetti; H&M dress; Steve Madden boots; Elle denim vest; Louis Vuitton hand bag; Longchamp shoulder bag; Accessorize necklace; Pieces bracelet; Promod cuffs
