Sheer can be hot, sheer can be glam, and sheer can be tricky – especially for those who don’t like showing their bra straps. But this trend is more about adding a hint of sensuality than strutting every last thing you’ve got. (Learn from Kristen Stewart's probably purposeful wardrobe malfunction at the Twilight premiere.) Try sheer pants under your favorite skirt with some sky-high booties. Layer a sheer maxi dress with a denim jacket. You can do sheer well – either with modesty or bold chutzpah. Here are some solid tips for your sheer forays.
Mix It Up
If you’re throwing on a breezy sheer dress in a light shade, ground it with a utilitarian jacket and boots. Add colored tights and a bag with buckled hardware downplay the translucence.
Add a soft sweater to a super-feminine sheer pleated maxi skirt. Simple flats and bag and one statement accessory – like a chunky necklace or hot pink sunglasses – and you’re good for a day of farmer’s market wandering.
