There’s no doubt that sheer pieces are one of the hottest trends right about now. Just take a look at the onslaught of celebs slaying the red carpet at this year’s VMA’s:
We know that this trend may look a bit too risqué for some of you lovely ladies, we hear ya! The idea of wearing see-through clothes can seem a little scary but trust us, once you’ve mastered the look, you’ll wish you’d tried it sooner! We’ve got you (un)covered - regardless of your body type, you’ll be mastering the art of going
sheer with these five simple style tips!
SOMETIMES LESS IS MORE
It only takes a slither of skin to make an impact on your outfit. Sheer panels do the trick and you can wear sheer with a high-waisted skirt or pants to cover the midriff! Flash a part of skin you’re not worried about showing like the shoulders, arms or your lower back. Take a leaf out of Nicki Minaj’s book and opt for a blue paneled dress at your next VMA’s *cough* … I mean party!
INVEST IN A GOOD BRALETTE
Showing some skin in a sheer top is super sexy! Invest in a maximum coverage lacey bralette. It will secure you in your comfort zone but allow you to pull off that sleek look! Forget those thick ugly bra straps and make your outfit super comfortable, super sexy and super chill! Bralettes are the perfect for a day of city wandering but can be worn under a sheer dress for the ultimate party look! Get Kendall Jenner’s look by pairing a black bralette under a sheer black blouse, haaawt!
FOR THE LESS ADVENTUROUS
Yep, Kim K is still going nude! But who can blame her when it looks so damn good?! A nude cami with a structured, high-waisted skirt is totally classic for the business women and super chic for the city wanderers! Go all nude (no, not your birthday suit) for a simple yet sophisticated look! It’s perfect for work, a spot of shopping with the girls, and even better for dinner dates with a glass of wine in hand! A subtle pink lip will compliment the nude tones and will have you feeling chic in five seconds flat. Voila!
Too scared to show off your less-than-bronzed torso underneath a super sheer ensemble? Get that off-duty model look like our gal Gigi, and fake it ‘til you make it! A good ol’ glow will make your sheer style that much more polished and effortlessly babin’ in just casual jeans, sneakers and a sheer top. If our ultimate #squadgoal gals can do it, so can you!
IT AIN’T JUST FOR PARTIES AND DINNER DATES
Hello daytime! If you’re a boss lady and sick of your usual work getup, say goodbye to those horrid grey striped pants and dank black blazers, YOU NEED A SHEER BLOUSE! Why? ‘Cos your work uniform needn’t be boring! Pair black high-waisted cigarette pants, a white sheer blouse with oversized sleeves and a pair of cute kitten heels for a super sleek and professional wardrobe! What’s best? You don’t have to worry about bra exposes, because a pretty nude one won’t be seen under it. Winning!
