So far, spring only showed up on our calendars, but now you can finally feel it. With the weather heating up, the “sheer” trend is just blessing in disguise.
The days are getting warmer and longer, it couldn’t get better than sheer. I am absolutely, loving this trend! It leaves a lot to imagination, by playing a little peek-a-boo game.
Sheer and see-through fabrics, clothing re-entered the fashion scene about 5 years ago. Back then, this trend was not very successful and considered too bold and a risqué. Today, sheer has taken over not only red carpet and movie premiers but also street style. Celebrities are not the only ones to don the look, but also the girl next door for a day in the city.
Michael Kors used some sheer fabrics for his 2012, spring fashion show. Last week, at the premiere of sir Paul McCartney’s new video “My Valentine”, sheer and cutout dresses by Stella McCartney were a rage. Miranda Kerr, Gwen Stefani, mother to be Reese Witherspoon, were all seen rocking the sheer trend.
The question is not whether to wear or not, but how to wear! It is important to make sure you are flaunting the most flattering part of your body, or it might just end up looking vulgar.
Sheer maxi dresses are a great day outfit for those with great legs.
If you have a fit midriff, a loose fitted long sheer top with skinny pants or a fitted skirt would look fabulous.
Self Conscious? Worry not! There is a lot more “sheer” you can do, with the sleeves, the back, the neckline. Let your imagination run wild, if you cant find what you have on your mind, get it custom made for yourself.
Be it day or night, go sheer! As far as you are confident, sexy is what matters!
