Summer Trend: Sheer Clothes

The see-through fashion trend might remind you of those “walking down the street naked” nightmares, so we can understand why you might be hesitant. But it’s a major summer fashion trend this year, and it seems like every celebrity from Charlize Theron, to Kristen Stewart and Rooney Mara has gone for the barely-there look. And this style works off the red carpet, too. It’s completely possible (and actually easy) to wear a sheer ensemble, but still leave a little somethin’ to the imagination.

Not completely sold on the see-through style? Bare with us (pun intended). There are a ton of polished ways to wear sheer outfits that don’t involve fishnets and a mesh mini dress. So how do you wear sheer clothing without looking like the victim of a wardrobe malfunction? We chatted with fashion expert Stephanie Rygorsky to get the rundown:

1. No need to be intimated by the term “sheer.” It’s actually a trend that works for nearly everyone. First and foremost, wear this style with confidence.

2. A sheer maxi skirt is a gorgeous way to wear this trend and looks best when paired with a knee-length slip.

3. Depending how daring you feel, you can pair a sheer blouse with a fitted tank, nude bra, or a brightly colored bandeau.

4. Sheer clothing is made for summertime because it will keep you nice and cool, but you can wear it into the fall by pairing with a leather jacket or heavier knit.
