Spring fashion has long been known for its floral decals, puff sleeves, gingham prints, and bright colors. But a new seasonal trend is in full rotation, and it caught me by surprise. What is this mysterious style craze you ask? Mesh.
Mesh isn’t a new trend in and of itself, though it’s a groundbreaking one for spring. This is because the see-through fabric often hinges on grunge aesthetics and edgy fashion (think: Megan Fox and Halsey). So when the rocker-like fabric entered the chat, I was shocked, as it vastly contradicts the pretty pastel hues of the season — and it’s all thanks to Hollywood stars.
Gwyneth Paltrow recently showed up to the Daily Front Row Fashion Awards wearing a naked top, Hailey Bieber wore a see-through dress around West Hollywood, and Kendall Jenner opted for a netted balconette bra. Yesterday, Priyanka Chopra walked on rainy spring streets wearing a mesh wrap top, proving that the sheer fabric is now a chic and classy choice.
The actress’ blouse wrapped around her and was cinched at the wrists with a high neckline; the gathered material showed off some skin, creating a slinky effect. Chopra also taught us how to style this coveted piece, pairing it with a spring-perfect maxi skirt and strappy heels. Her updo showed off large hoop earrings, giving admirers a complete view of her impressive top (sans any hair in the way).
