Sheer to wear this summer
It's the trend that dared to bare and won. Sheer fashion remains a statement to make in spring / summer 2012, and our guide takes you through all the looks, from the subtle to the sexual, from the monochromatic to the colourful. In a short few years sheer clothing has transformed itself from a seasonal accent into an ever green fashion trend. It started off as a statement that, with its chest-baring qualities,
was only to be found on the catwalks. No more.
Now chests are bared, shoulders highlighted and legs made to look longer. In fact, from the sexual to the subtle, sheer elements now can be found highlighting and accenting every desirable part of a woman’s figure.
But how has it changed for spring 2012, how will it be carried into autumn / winter 2012 and how, most importantly, can you work it into your own wardrobe?
Sit through enough catwalks and you’ll have a mental list of all the fashion trends and their stylings that are improbabilities when it comes to wearing them on the street. Improbabilities, that is, for the majority. There’ll always be those few people with confidence in droves who really don’t care enough what others think of them to let it alter the way they style themselves. These people are few and far between and their tastes see them wear everything from the statement to sheer.
As a statement look the question really isn’t whether to wear sheer clothing or not, it’s how to wear it. Some will argue with that and it’s likely that such people will be imaging the breast-baring, sheer fashion of the catwalks – but remember that it doesn’t have to be worn that way. Sheer fashion is about showing something off. Sometimes it’s a sheer fabric layered over a nice cloth, but more often then not sheer is about showing off skin. Like all things in fashion, that means when you’re wearing sheer don’t do it to shock but to flatter – wear sheer to show off a great asset.
If you’ve got great arms that could mean sheer sleeves. A great midriff? There’s sheer for that. From plunging necklines to backless dresses there’s a sheer interpretation of it, thus no reason not to be wearing the statement this year as long as you have something worth showing off. Once you’ve decided what to hide and what to reveal, you can theme your pieces accordingly.
