Sheer Layers/Sheer Fabric
Sheer fabric and layers have become one of the biggest buzz topics this season as we see plenty of people wearing them on the streets and runways courtesy of Elie Tahari, Badgley Mischka, Rag & Bone and Thakoon just to name a few. Sheer fabric doesn’t necessarily mean tight, see-through tops that seem trashy- in fact, we’ve seen them on the fashion runways used in a variety of ways from sheer layers, simple pieces and the look of delicate, feminine draping. It gives us another concept to play with, another tool to add to our tool bag of accessorizing in order to put together our look of the day.
Trust, ladies- offering a peek-a-boo of your lingerie can be tasteful if done right. A lacy, soft-cup bra would look fabulous under a sheer silk blouse but if revealing your undergarments to the world isn’t your cup of tea, you can always slip into a lingerie-esque camisole to wear under something sheer. The key is to make those layers visible and to give a slight taste without revealing everything.
