As we trek into warmer weather, light and breathable fabrics become mandatory. And in a season where colour play and pattern is as much a necessity as sunscreen, mesh seems like a great option.

Seen on the spring 2013 runways, not only does mesh rightfully take its seat in the realm of sportswear and sport-inspired fashion, it proves its worth as a perfect layering item for summer.

At Antonio Berardi and Milly by Michelle Smith, bold fluro hues peeped through black and white mesh to create depth and interest. At Jeremy Scott, the models wore their mesh with nothing underneath, though we don't recommend this for the office. 

Play about with peek-a-boo layering, try different colours underneath your mesh, or take a tip from the runways and layer different styles of garment.

If you're a young and trendy thing, then play on the literal sportswear trend with bright and bouncy trainers, skinny denim, and the new season take on the bomber jacket. 

For more of an elegant look, keep your mesh from creeping into the R&R sportswear look by pairing it with modern tailored separates, bold but clean lined accessories and a streamlined silhouette.
