How to Style Sheer Chic From Day to Night

The new trend that women love from the West Coast to the East Coast is the chic sheer top look. With temperatures up, the prevalence of transparent fabrics is one of summer’s coolest trends. Going sheer might be the next best thing to wearing nothing at all, so unless you’ve perfected your mugshot, picking the perfect underpinning is the key to getting this trend down. Here’s the best way to keep the girls under wraps while daring to bare, day or night.

For day:

For daytime, it would really depend on the situation. I would NEVER suggest this as a work or office look, but if you’re going out to lunch or doing something fun, it could be totally appropriate. I love the idea of a lace bandeaux style bra underneath a sheer top or peeking from a plunging maxi dress.

Offset the bareness of a sheer top by pairing it with an opaque pant or skirt in a more substantial fabric. A chunky heel or wedge also keeps the look from veering too sexy.

For night:

For evening, you could do a black bra under a black sheer top and it looks fab. Just make sure it’s a pretty bra that fits properly! A balconette or corset style bra or a t-shirt/molded cup style is best because it provides the most coverage.

Black on black looks sleek for a night out, so streamline with a pair of figure-flattering noir skinnies and let a killer pointy heel be your exclamation point.
