MESH : …”a material made from threads or wires with evenly spaced holes that allow air or water to pass through”….

As I’ve recently posted an article about the Neoprene in Fashion, I found myself thinking , maybe I should also mention the so popular Mesh designs, found so often this days in our favourite clothing lines. Mesh fabric allows your body to breathe, heat to escape and the fabric to dry four times faster than 100% cotton.

This material has also been used for a while in sports. I’m sure that I used to have a basketball vest when I was a kid made of this material. Spring is springing and the sun is finally out again, so I’ve accepted my friend’s challenge the other day, to a basketball game.

I couldn’t think of what to wear, when I then realised,  I had a mesh panel T-shirt somewhere in my wardrobe. I have to admit it made all the difference as soon as i started to warm up, I felt comfortable, didn’t have a sweaty T-shirt attached to my body and most of all I looked great even at my worse. Its such a “COOL” look too. 🙂
