Looking to show a little extra skin, this summer? Mesh up your look with the trend that’s been taking the runways by storm! Mesh is now the sporty luxe style that defines sexy by giving a modest sneak peek of some of your best assets! It’s also the perfect performance detail, as it allows for breathability and movement. Don’t believe us? We did a bit of mesh spotting. Here’s a look at how six top celebrities are wearing the trend – get inspired!
In Top Form
Celeb Inspiration: Kate Hudson
Perfect For: Yoga, Pilates, running and casual walks by the sea.
Style Tip: Kate shows off her glowing tan (not to mention her toned core) in a white mesh top with a geometric design, layering it over a bright sports bra (make sure you don’t layer this over lingerie to keep things classy!) It’s the perfect look for warm summer days! Pair it with gym or yoga trousers for a sexy, sporty look, or with a simple skirt for lunch with the girls.

Dress It Up
Celeb Inspiration: Kristen Bell
Perfect for: Lunch/dinner with the girls, city walks and shopping.
Style Tip: Mesh material and evening dresses are a dream combination! Add a sexy twist to your night out look with mesh accents and heeled sandals. Opt for pastel or bright colours for summer!
Make it your own: If you’re looking to dress up your look a bit more for a casual stroll through town, opt for an easy-to-wear dress, which you can just slip on. Mesh fabric will make it feel light and airy – you won’t even feel like you’re wearing clothes!
Play With Layers
Celeb Inspiration: Haley Baldwin
Perfect for: Chilling at cafés, walks through the city and lunch with friends.
