Sheer is here, there and everywhere! No doubt it has made it’s way to the red carpets. Just see Jennifer Lawrence at the premiere of ‘Catching Fire’ or Jaimie Alexander at ‘Thor: the dark world’ premiere. These two looks alone garnered enough attention to ‘sheerness’ via their blockbuster franchises. For me though, one look is done right while the other pushes the envelope to a sheer world (rumored) with no underwear.
Yes yes, sheer is a risque clothing fabric and not everyone is comfortable wearing it. But, there is a way to work it and you can choose how sheer you want to go.To give you a visual of the sheer I’m referring to, think of a shirt that classifies as transparent but opaque enough to leave something or more to the imagination.
Fashion talk shows are convinced that see-through clothing has made a comeback, but I’m wondering if it ever left?! I love sheer clothing, but with taste and elegance. The right kind reveals a confident, sexy and feminine exuberance. That’s the opposite of looks worn by Lady Gaga or Nicki Minaj for their stage shows or media appearances.
And by the way; to pull off this look, you’d have to hit the gym or like me, gained a mastery of the art of sucking in your paunch. Either ways, I bet that us girls look fab in sheer clothing. As much as I consider myself a nonconformist to fashion rules, there are certain clothing items that I’d rather run away from.
Here’s a list of sheer done right followed by my numero uno ‘I’d rather run away,instead’ look:

No matter the look you choose, remember that transparent clothing is prettiest when it is not form-fitting. A little over sized, breezy sheer top or dress can work miracles to bring personality to your outfit.
Although it is ironic that sheer looks are on trend this Fall-Winter season in spite of their impractical use at this time of the year; certainly, it is for when you take off that warm parka at a restaurant or a party.
Now more than ever before, you’ll be so on-trend if you wear sheer and wear it with panache.
