Mesh tank tops are no longer the uniform of club kids -- look no further than Isabel Marant's spring 2011 collection. An unfinished scrap of mesh can lend a badass vibe to preppy wear, whether peeping under a nautical skirt, or layered with a varsity jacket.

With summer weather playing us hot and cold (literally), we're craving new ways to layer our spring/summer essentials. Aimee Song of Song of Style gave us even more reason to play with perforated pieces -- the San Francisco native turned a bright-white Gap Body mesh tank into an unexpected classic by pairing it with comfy basics. A slouchy blazer, drawstring shorts and polka-dot blouse served as the feminine backdrop to her athletic top. We love how she gave her tank some hard-edged friends to play with, too. An Alexander Wang bucket bag and a mix of bracelets added the finishing touches. We're obsessed, and fully ready to ditch our Vince hand-knit pullovers for this sporty-sleek look.
