The Mesh T-Shirt

I'm wearing:

1. Mesh t-shirt in black, from H&M.
2. Black studded blazer, from Zara.
 3. Black paneled jeans, from H&M.
4. Leather lace up boots, from Asos.
 5. Leather bracelet, from H&M.
6. Stegosaurus double ring, from H&M.
For ages and ages I've been craving a sheer t-shirt or sweater. That didn't happen. After a while, I received this amazing mesh/net t-shirt from H&M and it truly became a styling challenge for me. At first, I had no idea how to wear it. Does it go with a long sleeve t-shirt underneath? A short sleeved one? No sleeves? No shirt underneath? Will I be able to pull it off?

It was all very confusing. Fortunately I saw the shape similarity between the mesh tee and the striped one from American Eagle. I put them together and the results were very pleasant. The stripes gain some texture and the necklaces still pop out, which is really great. The rest I kept simple, black jeans, hi-top sneakers and bracelets. It felt like my kind of summer outfit.

// Por siglos y siglos he deseado una playera o un sweater con transparencia. Eso nunca pasó. Después de un tiempo, recibí esta playera de red de H&M y se convirtió en un verdadero desafío poder estilarla. Al principio no tenía idea de cómo se usaba eso. ¿Va con una playera de manga larga abajo? ¿Con una de manga corta? ¿Sin mangas? ¿Sin algo abajo? ¿Será que podré usarla victoriosamente?

Todo era muy confuso. Afortunadamente, noté que la forma era similar con la playera rayada de American Eagle. Las puse juntas y los resultados fueron bastante placenteros. Las rayas ganan algo de textura y los collares siguen resaltando. El resto lo mantuve simple, jeans negros, tennis altos y pulseras. Se sintió como mi tipo de atuendo de verano.
For the second look I remembered some outfits by one of my favourite "fashion guys": Douglas Booth. He wears these shirts with blazers or something to cover up and balance the skin exposure. The thing is, he has an athletic body and I feel I little insecure with mine. But I still showed some courage and tried this look. I really loved it. Fashion aspects aside, it was incredibly fresh! HAHA! Seriously, it feels as if wearing nothing. Coolness.

So I chose to follow Douglas Booth's steps and added a rockin' studded blazer, super skinny jeans, leather boots and simple accessories, to create an all-black look that still feels like summer to me. What do you think? Do you feel I look like a slut? HAHA. Hopefully this post will help guys who don't know how to pull a mesh t-shirt but still love that style. Let me know your thoughts on this!

// Para el segundo look, recordé un par de atuendos que usa uno de mis "chavitos a la moda" favoritos: Douglas Booth. Él usa este tipo de playeras con sacos o algo para cubrirse y balancear la exposición de piel. La cosa es, él tiene un cuerpo atlético y yo me siento un poquito inseguro con el mío. Aún así, mostré valor e intenté este look. Me gustó muchísimo. Dejando de lado los aspectos de moda, ¡era increíblemente fresco! JAJA. En serio, se siente como si estuviera usando nada. HERMOSO.

Así, decidí seguir los pasos de Douglas Booth y anadí un saco rockero con estoperoles, jeans súper entubados, botas de piel y accesorios simples para crear un look todo negro que aún se siente como veraniego para mí. ¿Qué opinan? ¿Sienten que parezco un cualquiera? JAJA. Espero que este post les ayude a chavitos que no saben cómo sacarle provecho a una playera de red pero aún así aman ese estilo. ¡Háganme saber lo que piensan de esto!

  1. Me gustó mucho el segundo look. La verdad es que no estarás muy atlético, pero eres muy delgado y eso me parece suficiente. No son fan de los grandes músculos.

  2. #skinnyGuysAreTheNewBlack... me gusta el combo, pero por supuesto que el segundo me lo llevo. saludos Hen.

    1. Jajaja, ese es un buen manifiesto. Muchas gracias (:

  3. Sin duda alguna, el segundo look es mi favorito, tiene muchísima onda además de que me encantan las transparencias aunque no me atreva a usarlas jaja

    1. Jaja, son fáciles de poner pero dan un poquito de miedo, siendo honestos. Muchas gracias por comentar Alexis (:

For kids that are engaged with extracurricular activities, shirts can be custom designed to reflect their interests, regardless of what they are.Kinderschoenen
