Although it may have seemed like a fashion faux pas last year, sheer maxi skirts and dresses have been seen all over the runways and the red carpet. From designer fashion shows such as Givenchy, Chloé, Chanel Haute Couture, and Gucci, these skirts and dresses are sexy and romantic, while still staying elegant- in addition, they scream high fashion.
Rosie Huntington-Whiteley is a huge fan of the sheer skirt- she wore two dresses with sheer skirts during her promotion tour for her movie, Transformers: The Dark Side of the Moon. At the Moscow premiere, Rosie wore a beautiful Gucci gown with a gold bodice and a sheer black skirt. For a photo call in Rio for the movie, Rosie chose a black Michael Kors gown with a sheer black skirt with a full-length slit and makes the look very chic.
At the 64th Annual Cannes Film Festival, Kirsten Dunst wore a Chanel Haute Couture white down with a sheer white maxi skirt. It was beautiful and elegant with the two layers of sheer white lace that had a very romantic feel, without it looking promiscuous.
The sheer maxi can be worn even as a more casual look. For example, for an appearance in London, model Daisy Lowe wore a sheer nude skirt with a black top and blazer, but toned down the look with motorcycle boots. You could also wear a skirt like this with just a t-shirt or blouse for a daytime look.
