It seems that in the past few weeks Hollywood starlets have been setting the red carpet on fire with the latest daring fashion trend, SHEER. With so many movie premieres and press junkets it looks as though celebrities are prepared to show more skin than usual. The strategic cutouts have now been replaced by sheer fabrics that leave less to the imagination.
This comes to no surprise if you look back through some of the Fall/Winter runway shows. Designers like Helmut Lang, Gucci, and Chloe simultaneously have taken this sheer trend and carried it through the runway. The House of Dior has made a strong statement with sheer gowns that seemed to be more provocative each time a new actress hits the red carpet. So the question is how can everyday women partake in this style? Believe it or not its an edgy and modern alternative that can be worn at work, for evening or weekend events. It’s all in how you combine your look with the right accessories and how far you are willing to go, keeping it classy of course. Perhaps you’re not keen on wearing a head to toe see through dress, not everyone can pull a Jaimie Alexander and that’s fine. There are many pretty tops in the market today that have sheer sleeves that can be feminine. A lace or polka dot dress with a sheer overlay is another option. Keep your favorite blazer or cardigan handy if you need a bit more coverage. The right jewels, bag and shoe can make this so elegant.
This holiday season it would be just the right time to experiment with this type of look. We invite all the One Style at a Time readers to visit the brand French Connection and take advantage of their 30% Sale and Promo code which you can use below until November 26th.
