ALL IN THE DETAILS: Don't Fear the Sheer

Sheer, mesh, see-through overlays, oh my. This look is timeless and progressing each year. It is worn at NYFW as an elegant skirt over a floral brocade mini skirt by Delpozo, and as transparent layers over some risky briefs by Coach. It has a comfortable range that attracts many different types of women. The magic of the sheer is that you can layer it over, quite literally, anything you own in your closet. It is seen over T-shirts from Urban Outfitters, slip dresses, and if you are feeling confident over just some fashionable under garments.

Have you seen the wide leg pants under a long sheer gown topped with an open trench coat or army jacket? There is something to be said about the effortless looks of street wear layers with its baggy, yet tasteful aesthetic. Add a little spruce of textile with some sheer under your sweater or over your basics, and you will look trendy and elegant. A little see-through never hurt anybody.

My guru is rocking the sheer ruffle dress over a simple slip dress. She accessorizes with a choker and red lipstick to tie in her Comme des Garçons PLAY x Converse Chuck Taylor ‘Hidden Heart’ high tops. There are so many places she can wear this look! Sheer brings out her natural skin tone through its translucent material. This distinctive textile is so current because it portrays natural beauty unique to the sitter. Also, the guru’s lack of makeup supports this notion. Don’t fear the sheer, Fashionista/os.
