Mesh/perforated/fishnet trend Alert
Mesh/perforated/fishnet is a scary & tricky trend to wear although it can be fun, sporty and stylish. Get it wrong you’ll end up looking like an extra in a sci-fi movie, but if worn right it can make a great outfit. Mesh/perforated is a fabric characterized by intertwined threads, and it is used in both men’s and women’s fashion.
This trend range from open-weave knitwear to sheer micro mesh inserts. When buying or choosing mesh/perforated pieces, always bear in mind that the fabric come in a number of weights and hole sizes. For formal events it’s necessary to wear clothes that have subtle/a hint of mesh/perforated details without having to go all out.
The whole idea of wearing mesh/perforated trend is to show off some flesh without looking ‘sluty’ but decent & modest. Whatever you do don’t just throw on a bra and go out, this is a fashion faux pas unless you’re an exhibitionist and want to give everything away then knock yourself out.
Mesh/perforated pieces are great for adding texture & details to an outfit and will look fantastic when layered with other pieces since the fabric is lightweight & breathable. Layer a mesh top with a contrasting or nude tank top/vest/cami to avoid revealing too much flesh. Mesh clothing will look great when teamed with a blazer, biker jackets or bombers. We recommend you should buy clothing items with mesh details on the sleeves/midriff or skirts with mesh/perforated details on the hemline.
If you’re still not sure about the trend, go for mesh accessories such as bags & shoes until you gain your confidence. For a sport inspired look wear a mesh bomber jacket with a t-shirt, skinny jeans and biker boots.
