mesh tops for men
Stüssy

Layering is the bread and butter of modern style. If you understand how to stack your looks, textures, and color palettes properly, you can open up new levels of dressing. Unfortunately, while layering seems like the natural thing to do during winter, things can get a little hot under the collar during warmer months.

There is a way around this, though, and it comes in the form of slightly transparent, super-lightweight mesh tops which have popped up in the new collections of several brands this season, from Stüssy to Our Legacy.

Mesh not only provides a breathable extra layer but also lets you show what’s underneath through a new lens. The transparency of sheer shirts and mesh tops gives you license to experiment with bold prints and color combinations, helping you achieve originality. Look to striking examples by the likes of Dries Van Noten for a splash of color, or opt for something more undercover with iterations from Rick Owens.
