7 ways to embrace the mesh trend in the new year

I love all of the mesh stuff coming out nowadays! This dress caught my eye not only because of the stunning red crushed velvet, but also because of the polka dot mesh details at the top. Super cute!

This post brought to you by Dresslily. All opinions are my own.

This dress arrived on Christmas Eve. I was going to wear it Christmas day because with the beautiful red color, it just screams Christmas. But I didn’t get around to wearing it until the weekend after Christmas. I must say, I love red any time of the year, so this dress could be a cute going-out dress or even a Valentine’s day outfit.

Granted the mesh trend has been around for a few years, but I’m really starting to take notice of it.

Several ways to wear mesh are:

If wearing a totally sheer mesh top, a cute lace sports bra can be worn underneath or just a cute satin or silk cami.

You can also layer mesh over a crop top to wear with jeans. 

For a work ready look, pair it over a solid top or wear with a tank top underneath and a blazer in a contrasting color over top.

Mesh overlays or just peek-a-boo mesh would also work for more professional look.

A top or dress with flowing mesh overlays is an everyday, breezy look.

You can also embrace the mesh trend by just wearing mesh socks or tights.

Mesh tops with embroidery, lace or beads is also a fun way to mix it up.

Mostly, have fun with it. And wear it whatever way you are comfortable.

Happy New Year everyone!
