Apparently, this whole mesh has been around for the last 7 years – since 2013. Either I haven’t been paying attention or I’m not the fashion connoisseur I thought I was. Personally, for me, I saw mesh become mainstream in 2015 after I discovered Coachella and it was always based around the idea of festival fashion but you never really saw people wear it as a ‘normal’ fashion piece until maybe late 2017 when underwear became the new outerwear. And now I think mesh has hit its peak within mainstream fashion and I am LIVING for it. I don’t what it is but mesh and I are spiritually bonded to one another, everything mesh that I see I instantly need it in my life!

Last year on the runway we saw A LOT of mesh, this material is a great transitional piece for summer to autumn to winter because you can layer it! There are so many ways to wear this trend – those bold enough can even go completely braless and rock mesh in all of its glory but odds are most women who aren’t  Rihanna wouldn’t dream of leaving the house in a full mesh or sheer top with her breasts totally exposed, especially in the U.K because the people here are super bad vibes sometimes lol. But I promise you, one day I’m gonna rock mesh the way its meant to be worn, like a true 90s supermodel, it’ll be a true moment!

Like I say all the time Fashion trends are cyclical, they’re always coming in and out of fashion and I’m sure that you can all guess that this trend is in fact from the 90s – slightly transparent, lightweight and majorly sexy, it’s a look that is largely associated with the iconic fashion designer Jean Paul Gaultier, whose slinky, tattooed meshes first sauntered down the runway back in the early ’90s.

There are also many ways of wearing it and you can shop some of my fave mesh pieces here;
