F/W Trend: The SHEER Of It All

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 The strategic cutouts have now been replaced by sheer fabrics that leave less to the imagination.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.

Met Gala 2013: BEST IN PUNK

May is one of the most anticipated months in Fashion. Why you may ask? The annual grand event of Fashion once again arrived in New York City, The Met Gala. It is held at the Metropolitan Museum of Art and its to celebrate the unveiling of the Costume Institute’s most recent exhibit. On this occasion the exhibit is “Punk: Chaos to Couture” and is dedicated to the era of Punk Fashion starting in the 70’s and to the present time. 

For weeks the Fashion chatter was more about what were celebrities going to wear to the red carpet. Being that the theme was Punk it seemed many celebrities were conflicted on what exactly to wear or how to interpret this into their personal style. The evening finally arrived and there was an abundance of A-listers walking the red carpet. If you joined One Style at a Time on Twitter or the Facebook Fanpage you may have read the live tweets and or seen some sneak peeks of the arrivals. 

There were many celebs that played it safe and opted out of the classic punk leather, spikes or mohawks. Yet there were a few that stunned and gave a gratifying and authentic nod to this era of Fashion. Although it may not be a style for everyone, it was part of fashion’s history and worth paying homage to. This “Punk” exhibition will be open at the Met Museum beginning May 9th through August 14th. Here is a recap of what we considered worthy of a double take from the Gala’s red carpet. Keep in mind that there were plenty of pretty ball gowns and evening wear to admire. However, here we are highlighting those looks that kept with the theme of the night. So Fashion dolls, where you a Punk-nista back in the day? What do you think of these ladies interpretation of the Punk Movement in 2013?
