Sheer fabrics are having a huge fashion moment right now.  They are sexy, breezy and perfect for summer and spring time. Stars like Sarah Jessica Parker, Chloe Sevigny and Olympia Scarry have been seen looking sinfully glamorous in sheer detailed ensembles. Big name fashion designers like John Galliano, Alexander Wang and Valentino love using sexy, playful sheer fabrics in some of their most daring couture creations. We love the fact that sheer can be so versatile, it can be incorporated into looks that are drop dead over the top sexy, or demure and sophisticated. Here are our top 3 ways to wear sheer.

The Sheer Blouse

This item is perfect for office wear during the day and party wear in the evening. For a work appropriate outfit, wear a nude tank under a sheer bow blouse and pair with a fitted pencil skirt. You’ll still get the chic effects of the sheer shirt, without exposing your personal parts all over the office. For a night time ready outfit, take the same shirt but switch the tank top for a tube bra, lose the skirt and slip into some metallic leggings. This look is sexy with an element of boho style.

Sheer Maxi Skirt

Most sheer maxi skirts have a lining that ends right at your thighs, so they are only sheer from the thighs down. This means you won’t have to worry about unwanted exposure of certain areas. We love the idea of pairing a sheer pastel maxi skirt with a cream colored crop top. This look is effortless and you’re sure to look radiant in the summertime sunlight.


We can’t talk about sheer clothing without talking about lace. It’s a timeless fabric that is very in vogue right now. You could opt for a simple t-shirt with delicate yet sexy lace accents, or go for a full on lace mini dress. No matter how you decide to wear lace, as long as the fit suits your body type you are sure to look sophisticated and chic.
