We’re always on the hunt for a skin-baring look that doesn’t require us to go shirtless. We love a head-turning outfit that’s equal parts daring and classic, elegant and edgy, and sassy and sweet. And this summer, we’ve found it by way of the mesh bodysuit. Whether totally sheer or embellished and embroidered, the mesh bodysuit certainly requires some sort of layering situation to avoid any unwanted wardrobe malfunctions, but when styled correctly, it has the potential to be one of the most gorgeous looks you’ve ever styled.
We can’t get enough of a black mesh bodysuit, but we love mixing in lighter tones of bright white, pastel pink, and slight metallic sheens as well. With polka dots and stars, tank silhouettes, and more covered turtleneck shapes, there’s no limit to the potential of a mesh bodysuit. What’s more is that it can be styled with everything from blue jeans to slip dresses to eyelet skirts and tailored trousers alike, which means that we’re not taking off our mesh bodysuits anytime soon. Check out how some of our favorite street style stars have incorporated this summertime wardrobe staple into their looks, and get ready to be obsessed before long.
Opt for a sultry lace bodysuit, but pair it with light-wash denim for a high-low look that’s effortless.
Day or night, there’s nothing like a classic long-sleeved top brought to you by way of a black mesh bodysuit. Slip a sporty bralette underneath that will pop.
Even the most covered up of silhouettes is still revealing when it comes to a mesh top, so now’s the time to try out all those long-sleeved turtlenecks you’ve been eyeing.
Add a bit of whimsy to your mesh bodysuit look with polka dots or embroidered swiss dots that will take your top to the next level.
Layer up with a slip dress. Instead of making sure you’re wearing the right lingerie underneath your sheer top, consider slipping a silk shift over the top.
We love an all-black look, especially when it includes a mesh bodysuit. Up the ante with a star-embellished style when matching your top to a pair of high-waisted skinny jeans.
Go full-blown ’90s with the trend by choosing to throw the sheer top on over a sporty and graphic bralette. Finish off the look with a high-waisted denim skirt to add an edge.
Layering knows no bounds when it comes to this sheer bodysuit. Not only is it a lightweight layer to slip on under your most statement-making top, but its bodysuit silhouette will prevent it from tucking and bunching as you move.
Make your flirtiest floral dress a little edgier with the addition of a mesh bodysuit underneath in a deep black hue.
Embroidered mesh will take your look to the next level, making a statement despite its simplicity even when paired with a simple high-waisted jean.
