We love everything mesh at One Boutique – it’s perfect for layering in the winter, beach cover-up in the Summer, and for all occasions inbetween.
The trend isn’t exactly new either – it’s been around for decades with some of our favourite supermodels and celebrities wearing sheer pieces in some iconic photographs. As much as Rihanna might have pushed it up to a whole new level, she’s not the first – and we’ve documented some of the juiciest outfits for your inspiration.
1. Rose McGowan – 1998 MTV Movie Awards
Beyond ‘see through’ – this sparkly piece doesn’t seem to actually have a back. We love the nod to the cowl neckline , and the very 90’s leopard print thong to ‘co-ordinate’ with Manson’ suit.
2. Jane Birkin – 1969
One of the earliest examples of the transparent mesh dress, Jane Birkin wears a mini dress with on trend bell sleeves and a tiny pair of black boy shorts. The woman behind the luxurious and famous ‘Birkin Bag’ – designed off the back of a conversation between Birkin and the head of Hermes, Jean Louis-Dumas
3. Kate Moss wearing Liza Bruce – 1993 Elite Look of the Year Party
This look on Kate Moss is definitely one of our favourites. A strappy midi dress in completely see through, textured fabric. Naomi Campbell pictured on her left is also wearing a completely see through piece. We love the minimalism of the piece, and the spaghetti straps.
