Say Sheers

It would be an understatement to say that the sheer trend is still going strong this season.

The look has been interpreted in a multitude of ways by high fashion designers and fast fashion chains.

From showing a little skin with peekaboo panels to translucent fabrics, sheer dresses or blouse and shirt combos are trending everywhere. See-through shoes and handbags are also making an appearance!

There’s a line between trendy and tasteless when it comes to the transparency style.

The knack to this trend is often to try choosing outfits that focus on bareness in one area only.

If you’re nervous about trying this look out, accentuate bareness in areas like the shoulders and legs, rather than over the bust.

Another way to work this look is to try styles that play on different textures and patterns, rather than traditional see-through fabrics.

    Thanks Joy!

    Definitely have wardrobe (and hair envy) for Blake Lively.

    I have a dress with peekaboo panels and a skirt now, which I love because of their flattering design, but there have been a lot that I’ve seen and liked the look of but didn’t suit me.
