Wearing a sheer or mesh piece generally means that you’re baring it all, which can be a bit intimidating. But don’t fret: You would be surprised how confident a sheer top may make you feel! The secret? Finding the right one.

Not all sheer tops are created equally. Some are more modest, and others are fully see-through. Of course, there are also more opaque options on the market. The more traditional mesh tops provide extra creative room for styling, while the more elaborate versions may have sheer portions and other embellishments that allow for a completely different look. If you’re not sure where to start, we’ve rounded up a variety of trendy mesh tops below — get to shopping!
