Trending: Mesh Materials
Eight ways to partake in this intertwined look
We’re used to seeing mesh in workout environments. But it’s also become a staple on the runway over the past few seasons. And that’s not just because it looks cool. “Yes, mesh allows your skin to breathe and to wick away moisture,” says David Yi, fashion writer and editor of men’s grooming site Very Good Light. “But it also gives you some extra edge without being too distracting.” Here are a few ways to get on top of the trend—in and out of the gym:
