The sheer trend keeps popping up over and over on runway, implying that this trend will be around for quite a while. The sheer trend often gets unending praise when it appears on the runway but in real life the trend can create a bold fashion statement or be quite unforgiving. The trick is to learn how to dress up the trend to create a sheer perfect look.
Less is more
The maxim less is more has never been more literal as it is when it comes to dressing up sheer outfits. What this means is that you should show off the sheer trend in minimal doses to avoid looking drab instead of looking fabulous. Throw a jacket over a sheer blouse or go for a printed sheer skirt. You will be showing less, but staying true to the sheer trend. Another option would be to go for outfits which show off a little skin through sheer fabric. This could be dresses or tops with sheer sleeves or outfits with sheer accents.
Stick to one sheer piece
Pulling off a top to down sheer look is often difficult and could end up disastrously. Your best bet is to pair sheer outfits with opaque fabrics. Choose a sheer skirt and pair it with an opaque top or a sheer blouse with opaque pants.
Go for dark hued and embellished sheer fabrics
It is easier to pull off the sheer trend by picking dark hued sheer fabrics. This does not necessarily mean settling for black sheer, but there are dark hued and embellished sheer outfits which bring out the best of the trend.
If you are not confident about the sheer trend but adore it, the best way to incorporate it into your style would be to add a few sheer accessories to your wardrobe. This could be sheer scarves, bags with sheer accents or sheer leggings. The sheer trend works best during the summer/spring season, but there are a few pieces which could work during the winter season.
