Sheer has been making headlines all through the fashion world and has increasingly become a wardrobe essential every woman desires! It has been scorching the runways since the 90’s and made a re-appearance in 2006; since then, there has been no stopping this translucent trend! This sultry style has successfully trickled from high-end fashion streets into the popular departmental stores in an attempt to make the girl-next-door look as fabulous as her favourite celebrity!
Sheer is big right now and one can’t possibly skip it whether you’re at a plush store or a local flea market; it has made its presence felt and how! But in truth, to flaunt yourself in flimsy fabric that risks potential skin show is not for all, is it? The average woman would not be convinced so easily to don the sheer just because it’s ‘in vogue’.
So here I have two looks for you which are easy to carry and you definitely can carry it without worrying much on the skin show.
The first outfit I have chosen is a River Island sheer black dress with thread embroidery. I found it perfect combination of sheer & LBD.
When wearing sheer clothing, keep in mind that it’s the proportions of exposed skin that forms those creative shapes and designs. So don’t overdo it and just choose area to expose as per your comfort. Whether it’s the cleavage, back, legs, or midriff, choose an area that you are confident with.
Second look is about a sheer top and Jacket I bought on my trip to Shanghai. The rose embroidery on the sleeves is so alluring that I couldn’t help but buy it immediately. Styling this one was a little tricky so I have opted for a white bralette and Red skirt from ZARA paired with Red pumps.
Here are few tips to don the sheer look –
- Layer it right:
Sheer is a bold trend, but you can wear it with maximum coverage and little or no skin show! Wear your sheer pick over a colour co-ordinated slip or a nude one, depending on the fabric, style and tone of the top. If you’re feeling particularly adventurous for a night out, then pick a sexy bralette or a lacy bra of the same colour as your top, to accentuate your fashion flair! The key to successfully wear this trend is apt layering; you can easily wear the same sheer shirt to work or play just by changing what you wear underneath. How versatile is that!
- Opaque and sheer sure makes for a statement
Another effective way of wearing this style is by layering it over an opaque top. You can layer your sheer or mesh top over a solid opaque shirt to make a stirring statement! A popular trend doing the rounds is the crop top phenomenon- it’s another bold trend not designed for the faint hearted! While we always advocate not to go overboard with the trend sporting, the crop top and sheer combination could be a blessing for so many! For those of you who are not comfortable with baring your belly, simply wear your sheer top over your crop pick to make the most of two complementary styles. Ticks all the right style boxes, we say!
Flaunt the sheer without the skin! Get in the groove of this trend with the help of sheer panels that teases with just a little skin show, lending you style without the discomfort. Work it with sheer paneled dresses, tops, skirts or even pants to keep you in the thick of this flamboyant trend.
- Dress it up with a jacket, If you’re still not feeling comfortable with the see-through scheme of things.
Simply go ahead and flaunt the sheer trend of the season with these guidelines 🙂
