For The Love of Mesh

Whether it’s a fling, a series of dates or a full-on relationship, bad boys maintain a reputation to thrill, which makes reeling us in a mindless task. Men like Chris Brown and Rick Genest possess that je ne sais quoi that magnetically pulls frenzied admirers like a flock of seagulls towards an unattended picnic blanket at the beach.

If you’ve managed to score with any of the above hotties, then kudos to you. If you’re searching for someone like them, I have the answer. Or if you just wanna unleash your inner rebel, I have an answer for that too. Down below are three die-hard assembles that will surely get you swept away.

FIRST TIME: There’s always a first time for everything, may be it’s a date with a new guy or a decision to try on something new. Any way you look at it, this outfit will get you through the ice-breaker.

Open-Knit Cotton Tank: I’ve managed to incorporate mesh into each category, simply because it transitions so well from season to season. Wear over a long-sleeve shirt in the winter and go from a short tee to a tank underneath as the weather warms up.

24-Karat Gold-Vermeil Emerald Snake Bracelet: Egyptian royalty made this jewelry piece a legend. The symbol of the serpent continues to allure and mystify and this bracelet does nothing less than captivate that essence.

Stretch-Cotton Cargo Pants: Cargo is another item that truly never dies. Mix and match with your favorite sweaters, cotton or sheer tops, canvas sneakers, leather boots or shoes. There’s really no wrong way to style them.

Espadrille Wedge Sandal: Wedges are limitless, the staple footwear for Spring/Summer, the reason behind my choice to display them three times.

BACKSIDE BIKER GIRL: Ever wonder what it feels like to ride in the passenger side of a motorcyclist? It’s kind of like falling in love; giving your trust completely to someone else. So jump into something experimental in this number!

Cross-Back Jersey Tank: Great for layering over other tops and tanks or wear alone. Compliments anything type of pant, cropped, shorts or skirts.

Slouchy Crepe Cropped Pants: These pants travel far back in time to a place where harems were full and King Xerxes’ empire practically spanned the ancient world. Now-a-days these bewitching bottoms have drawn a faithful following among fashionable women who crave comfort without sacrificing glamor. Pair with loose blouses, long tanks, tunics, gladiator sandals, strappy heels, booties, wedges and espadrilles.

Gunmetal-plated pyramid ring: The enchantment of the East with a punk edge and yet practical enough for everyday wear.

LOVE IN AN ELEVATOR: Love can happen in the strangest of places; in a fitting room, a bathroom, a filing room, even an elevator. If you decide to look for love, this wardrobe piece will not disappoint.

Open-Knit Tank Dress: Mesh can be found in all types of styles, including a dress. Wear over your bikini at the beach or under your tunic. Be sure to cover your bum with biker shorts or boy shorts in a black hue. This dress is boot-friendly, so feel free to choose a boot that’s right for you.

Fine-Knit Cotton Sweater: Pull this over your lace cami and match with trousers, jeans, skirts and leather.

Sterling Silver Skull Necklace: A necklace after Rick Genest’s heart and Chris Brown’s hand. It’s the go-to accessory when you’re feeling a little dangerous or playful.
