MEOW! Mesh is More with this spicy bodysuit

I have a major thing for mesh.

It’s such a spicy fabric with a certain… je ne sais quoi. It adds instant sex appeal to any look in my book.

I recently got this “Mesh is More” bodysuit from Tobi & fell in love. I’m seriously obsessed with this body suit. For starters, the options to wear it are really endless. I even wore it with a tee last weekend.

It’s really a major winner.

Since mesh can be clingy & to avoid any snags, I recommend always sizing up with mesh – it will feel more like a top vs swimsuit. For reference, I’m wearing a medium in this bodysuit.

Also, just being real, but I love bodysuits with snaps at the… shall I say… crotch? area. It makes slipping them on and off a real breeze vs an ordeal.

Not only is it super flattering but the mock-neck line was what really won me over.

One of my favourite necklines is the mockneck. It’s a little more high rise than a crew neck but not as high as a turtle neck. It is extremely flattering & easy to dress up or down. I love the idea of wearing this with pearls.

In fact, when layered under a tee, I love that the neck sticks out a bit.

However, as we approach warmer weather, it’s time to strip away some layers versus adding them.

Instead of covering up, I wore this as my top with a bra from Urban Outfitter’s Out from Under collection that’s meant to be seen.

When wearing a bra out, I like to make sure it’s full coverage with a bit of padding or molded cups vs the unlined ones, especially with slinky fabric like mesh or lace. It helps add shape & silhouette to the outfit & you feel a little more covered up… despite wearing a bra out in public. 😉

I also love the thick, unlined lace straps.

There’s something so sexy about layering mesh with lacy, non?

Whenever I show my torso, I always like to balance it out with a good high waisted pant. It really balances out the outfit and makes your legs look endless. Plus, I love the kiss of fishnet-covered skin… I think it looks even hotter than exposed skin!

Okay so back to the pants…. not only is the fabric having a major moment right now with the pleats, but the fabric is so lightweight that makes it cool enough to wear with the warmer temps! I got the ones pictured from Bebe in Las Vegas in 2015 but these are perfect for this look!

Finally, I finished the look with some pointy black boots with a gold tip from Express. I love how the gold flashes right under the pant and the sharp toe peeking out over the long pants doesn’t steal any attention away from the look.

Unfortunately, these are long sold out but I am loving the gold piping on these for the same look!

Safe to say…. I’m a fan!

Since this look is so edgy on it’s own, I forgoed jewelry & finished with some killer shades! I love the modern look of rounded lenses, especially with the white circling. These are unfortunately sold out but they are the Quay invader frames, also here in gold. Any black and white or all black frames will do! I love these black ones.

All you need to do is add a light menswear-style blazer – love the idea of a white or houndstooth print – if it gets cooler at night like it does here in California & top with the perfect lipgloss, like Nars Orgasm {what I’m wearing} & you are good to go.

Anyways, let me know what you think for this look! It’s edgy, but perfect for a sexy date night {especially after a beach}, or a summer night out… even better at a rooftop or patio bar!

Speaking of… can’t forget a glass of wine or scotch to reaaaaallly finish the look off right 😉

Okay so I wanna hear – what are your thoughts on mesh? Any other fun ways to wear a bodysuit? tell, tell – I can’t wait to play around with this body suit more.
