Mesh is everywhere this spring, and fashion bloggers and celebrities alike are wearing the bold trend this season. While mesh first emerged in street style, it is now finding its way to the racks and runways in the form of sweaters, tanks and tops. The look is both edgy and classy, and perfect for the warmer weather.   

Los Angeles fashion blogger Karla Deras of Karla's Closet shows off the style in a white mesh sweater from ASOS. Deras pairs the sweater with cropped jeans, Air Force Ones and a distressed blue denim jacket loosely tied around her waist.  The unique long-sleeved top features mesh detail on the bottom and throughout the sleeves for a cool, relaxed look. If you want a different feel, pair the versatile piece with a skirt.

Aimee Song of Song of Style models a more traditional mesh top. The black satin tank from H&M combines the look of a muscle tee with the feel of a flowing camisole. The mesh detail starts at the neck and continues into a low-cut V-neck shape, creating a corseted look in the front. Song completes the outfit with a printed skater skirt and strappy sandals.
An all-over mesh outfit can work too. L.A. blogger Liz Cherkasova of Late Afternoon chooses to wear a mesh crop top and mesh skirt together. The black and white color accentuates the striking impact of the mesh effect by revealing the white layer underneath.
But remember, the mesh trend doesn't have to be monochromatic like these three examples. It can also be paired with bright prints and colors.
Whether you want to be completely meshed out or just prefer a hint of the trend, mesh details are all the rage this spring and can make you a standout this season.
