17 Easy, Breezy Mesh Pieces To Keep You Cool This Summer

Once upon a time, mesh was the least glamorous material you could find. It lined swim trunks and made up basketball jerseys, it held dirty laundry or, in its Hot Topic-goth iteration, was worn black and tight and reeked of teen angst. But the poor, downtrodden fabric is actually quite versatile — the perforation keeps it airy, the layering possibilities are endless, and the see-through quality keeps things casual and cool. On top of that; this is Miami, and we will take any chance we can get to let our fashion ventilate.
So we say, forget the haters, and let us wear a material that breathes...especially when it adorns adorable frocks, sporty totes, and major, major platforms, or is featured in neons, pastels, or colorblocks. A chic material that is easy and breezy? Sign us up, Miami.
