Black Mesh

The thing about dressing in the summertime is that much as I want to stick to my idea of wearing just quality, investment pieces—I sweat through my clothes and the strictly curated wardrobe needs to be augmented with everyday filler pieces.  Amazon has become my new eBay as of late, and Summer 2013′s filler fabric of choice: black polyester mesh.  It’s amazing how breathable such a synthetic textile can be and how it drapes to quite a flattering effect.

I like to wear my jerseys oversize and unbranded.  There is an authenticity (and great savings!) to wearing the basic, generic versions of sportswear pieces contemporary designers render in fashion fabrics.
