How to wear: sheer

The best of the trend from the streets

By AKANKSHA KAMATH  January 30th, 2015

Watching runway models work head-to-toe sheer is great. Watching these real girls show you how to wear it every day, on the street, to work, post-work drinks…even better! There’s so much to borrow from their looks: Choose peek-a-boo inserts in doses. Tulle panels on your jacket sleeve, or half-way mesh skirts that show flashes of skin (a little goes a long way).

When wearing an all-over sheer slip dress, wear a snug polo neck below. Or try a crisp white shirt under a crochet cropped cape. Work a tailored boyfriend jacket over a risqué fishnet dress maybe. There’s a hundred ways to wear the trend, really. From pretty and lady-like, to androgynous and retro. Click through our picks from the street that cover the whole spectrum! Just one rule of thumb – choose your inner wear wisely. You don’t want to show off any more than you planned.
