Mynt News: Fall Trending - Hot Mesh
Posted: Sep 29 2014
Like most of the free world, fall fashion is looking to Beyonce for a little inspo. Case in point, her famed fishnet facemask worn on her and hubby Jay Z’s “On The Run” tour. For everyone other than the Queen B herself, the look is a bit dramatic for everyday wear but that’s no reason other fashionistas can’t get in on the netted fun.
We looked back through the decades to see how style icons have worn fishnet, perforations and mesh. Here’s our guide to sporting nothing but net.
Hints of mesh
Flashback to the 1950’s and what you’ll find are fishnet veils, or an earlier, more demure version of Beyonce’s current facemask. To get the look, lose the veil but keep the mesh by slipping on fishnet stockings with our Pegged Pencil Skirt. Complete the look with the Color Block Button Down, and keep those seams straight.
If your look tends to be rocker inspired, look to the ladies of 80’s punk and 90’s grunge yore. Take our Knit Top With Mesh Panels and pair it with skinny jeans or our leather-trimmed Bastian Leggings. Then glam it way up like Madonna or Kate Moss with heavy metal jewelry, boots and dramatic makeup.
If the net or mesh look is too harsh for you, don’t hate, perforate. Perforated pieces are a more covered-up way to wear peek-a-boo fabrics. Go for an understated sexy look with our sort-of-see-through Perforated Pencil Skirt, which leaves a little to the imagination with its holed hem.
For a casual take, the Perforated Suede Bomber lets your under layer peep through. We say, wear it with a bright, contrasting tee and your favorite skinnies.
With the temperature dropping, take a fashion cue from the 1960’s when ladies would never leave the house without gloves. Make a statement with perforated gloves paired with our equally ladylike Curved Seam Fit And Flare Dress.
