MESH UP – how to wear the new mesh for day or night

By Posted on 1 Comment2min read

Most famously hung across the shoulders of such 80s icons as Madonna and Sid Vicious , mesh fabrics used to be synonymous with punk gods, metal heads and OTT styling replete with studs, nose rings and creepers. If there were a song that described mesh it would be David Bowie‘s anarchist  anthem “Rebel,Rebel“. However, this netted fabric has gone a long way in it’s evolution through the decades and here it is before us in an utterly more grown up version that is , dare I say it – precise and refined. Elusively hinting at nudity yet demurely chaste, the new mesh fabrics are as innovative as they are ultra cool. Close to home Dion Lee has utilised the trend in a number of looks ranging from tops to dresses , and the results are nothing short of extraordinary. Still keeping it’s subversive core, while appearing completely wearable, these pieces are a practical summer godsend – airy and light, they keep the wearer comfortable in the summer heat. Nose ring optional.

For day , look no further than a quilted metallic skirt, worn with a comfortable loose top and wedge booties – snarl wearer’s own. (Kenzo skirt from stylebop.com, Dion Lee bralette and top, Isabel Marant booties, Amber Sceats jewellery )

Pulling up on it’s disobeying credentials while being impeccably tailored has produced a sexy elegance in this mesh Dion Lee dress. Cutouts and clever twists serve to add to the perfectly hourglass way it moulds to the body. This is one night time look that won’t go by unnoticed.  ( dress by Dion Lee, shoes by Vionett, jewellery by Amber Sceats)
