If pennies are a bit tight and you’re not 100% sure about what to invest in this season, may I suggest you indulge in a little sheer mesh? The sheer thing has been seen on catwalks and red carpets alike over the last few months and this season has seen it filter through to the high street.
Now before you recoil in horror at this picture, let me just say that it’s from an American Apparel shoot, which should explain a few things. Plus unless you are lady Gaga, no-one is expecting you to wear this sheer mesh dress like this!
Of course if you are brave enough, (and have the figure enough) you can team it with a bandeau top and some hot pants or a leotard underneath. For everyone else, think clever layering; e.g. a bandeau dress underneath followed by a pretty floral skirt over the top. Think of the mesh as just a yoke and sleeves and wear it under the dresses you have in your wardrobe already. This will update them into an on-trend look for AW09.
