Style Guide: Mesh is More


Written by Jessica Moore


At Tobi, we’re all about layering and combining textures, and mesh & sheer tops help out with that. Mesh is like that friend that rolls up with the latest tea…always keepin’ things interesting.

Think of sheer clothing as an instant way to show some skin and add the right amount of sexy edge to all your winter and transitional spring outfits.

There are sooo many ways to fashion sheer blouses, sheer shirts, and underlays: you can easily go with our fave mesh long sleeve top & lace bra combo, but there are other ways to creatively combine and wear sheer tops with your wardrobe faves. This is a versatile fabric you’ll be wearing all season long. For the colder months, don’t be afraid to style these mesh styles with faux fur pieces to really amp up the looks (and to stay warm & cozy)! Check out how to style faux fur outerwear & accessories in our style guide! 

Sheer doesn’t have to be intimidating! Here are our favorite ways to wear these see-through pieces.

Mesh Well with Slips

We’ve all been there: you’ve got a killer summer dress in your closet, but you can’t bear to wear it because it’s too cold out.

Sheer long sleeve, meet slip dresses. Slip dresses work perfectly with mesh blouses, especially dresses with a feminine silhouette and print with thin spaghetti straps for that instant 90s grunge vibe. The Yana Grey Ribbed Shift Dress styled with a long sleeve sheer top like the Mesh is More Bodysuit mixes cute with edgy.

Meshin’ with Metal

This ain’t yo mama’s turtleneck blouse. Mock necks are IN this winter season, and they’ll look even more chic with layers of dainty choker necklaces around your neck. The Hide Away Mesh Bodysuit has a beautiful high collar that will show off your chains. You’ll never want to take off the Triple Threat Gold Layered Choker Necklace. The more layers the better, so why not include the Venetian Gold Cross Choker Necklace. Effortless at its finest.

Meshed of Both Worlds

This embroidered blouse looks especially hot with a sleek tailored bottom that leans on the masculine side. We’re thinkin’ the Mila Floral Applique Mesh Top works perfect with a more masculine silhouette like the Kelly Toast Pants. It’s a clash too cute for words.

Meshy Details

The Spotless Mind Black Mesh Bodysuit features a gorgeous dotted print that looks especially pretty when paired with high waisted denim (gotta love mom jeans for those retro feels). The Sophie Black Mesh Floral Bodysuit has subtle floral print that looks elegant all by itself, but particularly sexy when styled with rougher denim.

Sheer Tops: Bell Sleeves

Skin-tight is always great, but flowy mesh can revive & redefine your fave outfits. The See Through You Mesh Crop Top is a translucent crop top with breezy beautiful bell sleeves for that extra flow. The Hot Night Out Bell Sleeve Mesh Top combines edge with dreamy romance. And plus, who doesn’t love twirling their arms with soft, extra flared sleeves?

Mix n’ Mesh with Color

Don’t get us wrong–black sheer tops are def a wardrobe staple, but throwing in an unexpected color from time to time is refreshing. RN, we’re lovin’ nude, red, blush, & olive shirts. Try the Mesh is More Olive Bodysuit with high waisted jeans or a black button down skirt for something different. The Macy Blush Mesh Crop Top is a sheer blouse that looks like chiffon magic with a pair of velvet overalls like the On Another Level Velvet Overalls.

A Hot Mesh in Faux Fur

So we love to take every opportunity to be a lil extra, and sheer dresses are no exception. And have we shared our undying love for everything faux fur? Take it up a notch by pairing a faux fur jacket with a mesh dress this winter. The I Mesh You Shift Dress looks fabulous when you pair it with the Audrey 3+1 Killin’ Me Softly Faux Fur Jacket. The sexy black detail in the We Won’t Stop Mesh Bodycon Dress Set is the definition of sultry, and is amplified with the pretty plum color of the Stone Row Fauxreals Jacket.
