Sliders, mandals, birckenstocks - a shoe of many names. Now this is a controversial trend, as you either love it or despise it. Even though I desperately tried to ignore it, Givency, Dolce & Gabbana, Maison Rabih Kayrouz, Alexander McQueen, Esteban Cortazar and Dries van Noten to name a few, all had this trend in common at their SS15 shows last month. It’s basically a practical sandal with thick leather straps and a thick sole. Apparently it’s derived from what was known as the Jesus Sandal, hence the male inspired name, MANdals. Hey, nothing says I’m Fashionable like a pair of uniquely modified sandals.
Mesh tops, mesh dresses, mesh skirts, mesh, mesh, and mesh. Using mesh cutouts as part of clothing articles is a big thing among designers. And I think we can see why. It adds a rugged and hardcore feeling to your look, and Topshop, Zara and Cotton On each seems to agree. It’s super street. It’s super stylish. Just don't get into a meshy situation by wearing too much mesh; you may as well be wearing nothing at all for that matter. I think you can agree it’s what you need in your closet RIGHT NOW.
