A wardrobe of mostly classic basics that work for your shape and lifestyle makes it easy to add an inexpensive trend when you see one you would like to try. An occasional trendy piece can be fun to spice up your classic neutrals. I spend the bulk of my clothing budget on the best quality I can find when it is time to replace a foundation piece, but when I want to go with a trend, I spend very little money on it because I may keep it for only a season.
The look of the sheer mesh can be fun and sexy when added wisely. My style personality is conservative and classic so, the glitter looks and colorful tights or crazy plaids predicted for fall 2018 may never make it to my closet. Sheer mesh and cutouts were trends for summer that caught my eye and occasionally made appearances in my wardrobe.
Wearing a black top with a plunging neckline filled in with mesh isn’t my style. I would never feel comfortable showing that much skin. However, a panel of mesh down the back of a slim fitting duster is a subtle nod to the sheer trend.
