How do you wear mesh without looking like you’re hanging onto remnants of 80s nostalgia or worse, working the streets on some unsavoury, poorly lit corner? Jess Dempsey, the fashion force behind the style blog ‘What Would Karl Do’ shows us how. The key is choosing the right fabric, weave size and texture for the occasion. Smaller hole sizes, which comes in the form of micro-mesh tends to work better for night. Where as the more open, looser weaves lends itself better for casual day or weekend engagements.
What I love about Jess’ outfit choices, is that she’s ramped it up by layering a metallic gold mesh skirt over a black and white grid pencil skirt. In addition, the fur trimmed ankle strap heels and gold studded cap adds a hint of ghetto fabulousness. If you’re not quite ready to embrace this trend, you can always work mesh into your shoes or details in your top.
