Being able to wear a piece of clothing on the shorter or sheer side without looking too provocative takes some serious skill. There are many ways to make a short dress trendy and appropriate for an everyday ensemble, but figuring out how to do so can be tough. Sometimes all you need is a little inspiration to complete the outfit you are imagining in your head.

I was browsing through the spring 2015 ready-to-wear runway shows when I came across the Balenciaga collection. This collection was absolutely incredible and made me fall even more in love with Balenciaga all together. It was filled with short black dresses, sheer dresses, sheer sleeves and even sheer skirts. This collection defines how to wear more of a daring ensemble in a chic, trendy way.

One specific look inspired me to pull out a black short sweater dress from my closet. The model is seen wearing a super short black dress. My sweater is definitely on the sheer side and is super short, so I have been totally unsure how to rock it. This collection gave me the confidence I needed to put together an outfit. I decided to throw on my black sweater dress with a pair of black sheer tights to keep warm. To complete my outfit, I chose my black over the knee boots from ALDO. I altered the look a bit to make it more of an everyday look by adding the tights.
