Last week I tried out something new by borrowing a sheer lace shirt from a friend and wearing it out.
I’ve never really worn anything like this top before, but I got a few compliments on it and I’m starting to think I should add a few pieces of sheer to my wardrobe.
When worn the right way, sporting sheer clothing can still be classy and I’ve noticed some celebrities who have taken on this trend:
Paired with the right undergarments and jacket, you can even get away with the wearing sheerest of the sheer.
On the other hand, you don’t want to take sheer to the other extreme, like (shocker) Lady Gaga.
The number one thing to think about when wearing a sheer blouse is what’s going under it.
Black under black usually works, but you probably want to stay away from white under white. A nice grey or nude colored undergarment works great for most sheer tops, and that’s exactly what I wore under mine.
Here are some of my favorite sheer styles (all from Anthropologie) I would love to add to my closet via She Knows.com.
Here’s a great outfit with a sheer blouse put together via College Fashion:
I happen to love this trend, but I want to know what YOU think!
Are you hopping on the sheer blouse trend, or do you think this look has already come and gone?
I think you might feel differently if you saw the documentary ‘Miss Representation’ and understood the media/ fashion/ news industry and how they LOVE it when women promote their ‘sheer’ beauty.
All I mean is you would never see a woman in a leadership role wearing this in public. She would never be taken serious. You are too young to realize that Madonna was the original ‘sheer’ influence and although, I admit I’m intrigued by Madonna for her lifelong accomplishments, there is no denying that she almost single handedly created a ‘movement’ in women exposing their ‘sheer’ beauty that has escalated in the last 2 decades.
I always look back to my own daughters for reasoning and wonder why they want to where something that exposes their body at age 11, 12, 13, 14….its because these girls want to be grown up like you. YOU are their role model for dressing. Is this what you want your daughter wearing at age 11 when boys are looking and texting them obscene gestures?
Just food for thought. It’s fashion with a statement for sure.
I agree, not everyone should wear this look. I myself tried something new by wearing sheer and decided to post and ask about it here only because I got several compliments (from women) on it when I went out.
You’re right… someone in a leadership role might not want to wear sheer… but there are ways to wear and not to wear it. I’m hoping everyone can grasp the difference I’ve attempted to outline in this post 🙂
I personally love the sheer trend! I’m still into it
You did a great job showing us the different ways to wear it.
The sheer shirt trends are really awesome.yet I never found any interesting article like yours.
It is pretty worth enough for me. In my opinion, if all web owners and bloggers made good content as you did, the net will be a lot more useful than ever before.
