2019 has already proved itself as a fashion force to be reckoned with several key micro trends emerging as the essential styles to own. And whilst there’s plenty of new season styles to contend with, there’s one favourite 90’s trend that has come back in full force: mesh. From party and casual wear to – believe it or not - our working wardrobe, there is always a time where you could use a little mesh in your life. Revealing a little but never too much, mesh gives just the right amount of skin and transparency to add allure and intrigue to any look. In honour of this fabric’s triumph return, we have made an edit of the best mesh items that you’re definitely going to want to snatch up this season, and we will even give some top tips on how to wear them if you’re feeling a little nervous about it all.
Trust us, we’ve got your back - and it’s going to be covered in mesh.
