Recently, Mr. Newton, a street style photographer, caught blogger Eleonora of JouJou Villeroy in a sheer top…with nothing on underneath it. And then, trendsetter Lady Gaga wore a completely sheer maxi dress to Terry Richardson’s book launch party.
Sheer clothing was popular on the runways for fall/winter, but as you know, sometimes it is difficult to translate the runway looks to real life. However, fashionistas, like Blake Lively are embracing the sheer trend.
You don’t have to be a model or star to incorporate the sheer trend into your wardrobe. A sheer dress is over-the-top…tops are much easier managed. Look for tops that are blousey and tailored- avoid tight, body hugging tops. This will keep your look polished and sophisticated.
Next, wear a camisole underneath your sheer top. If you are feeling bold, or going out at night, a bandeau or bra can be worn. Bras should cover everything, be in tip-top shape and stay in place.
Chilly outside? A faux fur vest or relaxed blazer would be a great addition to a sheer top.
Sheer should be kept out of the workplace, unless your workplace is fashion oriented and a camisole should always be worn underneath.
This is a fun trend that will easily transition to spring!
