Sheer is seen abundantly in the form of translucent fabrics and peekaboo panels throughout autumn/winter collections. The Personal Stylists at KM Image Consulting can give you insight into how to best adorn the trend in fresh and exciting ways. We also have a portion dedicated to wearing sheer elegantly in your workplace.
Sheer is a trend that can be functional for both work and play. From subtle to pure sensual, classy to sassy, monochromatic to colorful, this trend accentuates your best features in a playful yet unexpected way.
If you’re going for a daytime look, try a see-through blouse with dark jeans or leather leggings. Top it with a statement necklace. The sheer blouse could be paired with a solid tank or camisole. A flowing, easy silhouette looks great with a second fashionable top underneath. You can keep the colors tonal, or choose an under-piece with a completely contrasting color to shake things up. Metallic under-tops look great if you want to add that extra shine to your outfit. A dress with an organza hem or mesh sleeves gives a sexy impression, but yet everything is covered.
For a night out in the town, you can be a bit more adventurous and fun by layering up chiffon skirts, sheer tops with metallic or embellished bras, dresses with cut-outs, sheer paneling and lace see-through bits.
You could even put some sheer into your accessories by choosing transparent see-through bags and lace sheer pumps or booties.
Essentially you could wear sheer to show off a great asset. If you’ve got great arms that could mean sheer sleeves. A great midriff, toned back – there’s sheer for that.
Now, there are many ways that you can translate the same outfit to make it work appropriate.
Sheer fabrics, such as chiffon, are a great choice for keeping it light. You can certainly make it work appropriate if you style it right. One way to make a sheer blouse fitting for the office is to keep the rest of the outfit very conservative — like pairing it with a suit or a classic formal skirt. You could team dark leggings with sheer panels with long solid blouses and a blazer. Teaming your entire outfit with silk chiffon sheer scarves adds a touch of refinement to your look.
