How To Pull Off Sheer Fashion Trends
It’s no secret that the trends you see on the runway don’t always translate well into ready-wear. The sheer fashion trend is alive and well, and my trend-spotting eyes don’t see it going away any time soon! Sheer fabrics are the perfect combination of feminine and flirty, and springtime definitely calls for a mixture of both.
While sheer dresses, skirts and blouses are definitely must-have spring items, most women aren’t too keen on clothes that flash their nipples and other girly parts for the whole world to see. There is definitely an art to pulling off these sheer trends without looking trashy.
Women want to look classy and edgy all at the same time, not like you just finished a midnight shift at the strip club.
Here are three things to keep in mind when picking out those pretty sheer pieces for spring:
Coverage is essential, and a lightweight tulle skirt doesn’t exactly scream modesty. The key to pulling off a sheer maxi skirt is layering! You know those bandage style skirts that keep popping up like daisies? They are the perfect choice to layer underneath dainty fabric. You could even try wearing a stretchy tube top around your waist! Don’t feel pressure to go completely matchy-matchy either. Mix up prints, colors, and textures to add depth and personality to your outfit.
Sheer dresses are a little more complicated to pull off, but its basically the same overall concept. Glamour
suggests this secret weapon for preventing against overexposure: Gap Body‘s nightgowns! They are simple undergarments that come in a variety of different colors and fabrics.
Sheer blouses are the easiest fashion obstacle to overcome. All you need to do is stock up on bandeau bikini tops and tube top style bras and you’re good to go! If the thought of someone peering through your shirt and seeing your bra still freaks you out a little bit, try a neutral colored tube top instead!
Don’t be afraid to stretch the mold a little bit, girls! Be empowered to show off your sexy curves and inner fashionista — and tell BANGSTYLE how you’re rocking your favorite sheer styles this spring!
