Mesh Me Up

New year, new mesh. (No pun intended!) A favorite fabric of mine, the miniscule nets embrace every curve while it keeps me cool on the hottest days. Though it’s ideal for hot weather, mesh can also be layered on cooler days, too. Even if you were in a cold country and are in need to wear something cool underneath all those heavy layers at a house party, girl’s night indoors or a date night at your apartment, mesh is ideal when you wanna drink mulled wine and munch on smores.

While plain mesh is cute, printed mesh is THE trend you must add to your cart this year. Look no further than my top picks:

  1. Miaou Mini Tee

This baby tee drives you in the mood for a warm bowl of spaghetti bolognese. Style it with low rise jeans and a sherpa jacket.

2. Sandy Liang Two Piece Set

NYC’s “It” designer is not to be slept on for the rest of the year. If you miss the pre Insta street style era, this two piece set is reminiscent of those years when you could scroll through blogs to find real style. It’s also giving the Bill Cunningham energy where the late photographer chronicled New Yorkers out and about that didn’t try to dress for the cameras even if they were caught on camera. The link is for the top, but I highly recommend getting the skirt for the full look.

3. Mugler Star Flocked High Neck Top

The iconic paneled bodysuit’s cousin is starting to make waves, too. A more wearable version than its risqué relative, this bodysuit is both playful and classy. You can make it family friendly with a nude camisole underneath or make it X-rated with an opaque black bra underneath it. Throw on a blazer and jeans to make it extra casual.

4. Thistle and Spire Bodysuit

Are you excited for Coachella as much as I am? If you plan to go, set Empire Polo Field ablaze when you strut down the grass. Be the headliner by styling this with a denim jacket (for the evening) and low rise cargo pants.

5. Jean Paul Gaultier Top

The Cyberbaba dots are never going to go away anytime soon and its status as a must have is proof. This turtleneck top can be worn on its own or layered underneath a black dress. If this is too expensive for you, I found a similar dupe on Revolve.

6. Miaou Corset

I am a sucker for a Miaou corset. Since 2020, I’ve been buying the brand more frequently and their corsets have helped me to feel more comfortable with my body. Though I normally wear a bra, their corsets make me feel like it’s totally bra optional as it gives the lift of a bra and snatches me at the right places whenever I pig out at dinner. Trust me, you will never regret buying this print as it’s on sale, too!

7. Miaou Dress

Last year, I was on the hunt for content-worthy fits and this dress was it! I always get comments on it, I kid you not. This mesh dress is so comfortable that I legit wanna sleep in it. Bear in mind that this post isn’t sponsored by Miaou as I literally LOVE their mesh. Not a single rip has happened since I bought it.

8.Poster Girl Pants

I’ve been a huge fan of the British brand since 2018 and their stuff is legit worth it. I’ve never gotten sick of any of my Poster Girl items because I love them that dearly. If you love Euphoria, these pants are the next big thing to add to your closet as it reminds me so much of Jules in her season 1 days (a.k.a. the pastel era). You really must add them to your cart for your bday trip whether it’s at Coachella or in Bali.

Lapis - (n.) a layer Shrek once said that "onions have layers" as he was peeling one. Like an onion, I have layers. Born in Jakarta and raised in Singapore, I grew up being surrounded in a multicultural environment. Then, I moved to the States, where I lived in NYC and L.A. The creativity, hustle, bustle and vibe of those cities inspired me to become a blogger, journalist and influencer. Writing by day and living it up by night, I slay in the streets one OOTD at a time. Full-face makeup included, too. ;)
