As a fashion editor, there is something so fun and satisfying about seeing a trend start to percolate and then, over the course of some seasons, really start to take hold. Such is the case with the growing mesh-flats trend. For some time, The Row was the leader in the space with its highly coveted Mesh Sock Flats. The cool, minimal flats have been spotted on many in the fashion crowd.

One of the many perks of the see-through style becoming more and more popular is that a lot more options are available at every price point. Another is that mesh flats go great with everything from dresses to jeans. Keep scrolling to see 33 of the most stylish mesh flats to shop now in a variety of styles (embellished, slingback, mules, and more), plus some outfit inspiration on how to wear them. I highly recommend that you act quickly when you spot a pair you love since these styles have been selling out fast.
