Where, Wear 1: The Time of Year to Sheer


A dash of skin can be alluring, but also playful, sporty or chic. This season calls for this very effect with the sheer style. Sheer, or see-through style, refers to translucent looks through either a fabric or mesh. Found anywhere from hemlines to sleeves, sheer is a detail easily found in a variety of pieces. The most ubiquitous is definitely a sheer blouse, often styled in layers. Recently, however, incorporating peek-a-boo panels in dresses or sweatshirts has emerged as a more stylish way of coordinating sheer details, with Alexander Wang S/S 14’s “Parental Advisory: Explicit Content” top top gaining most recognition. A previously simple, modest design can easily make a statement with mesh detailing. What makes sheer such an attractive option is not only the mysterious aura it generates, but also its practical applicability, which both protects you from the cold and keeps you cool during transitional seasons. Sheer looks light and is an easy layering option, making it an optimal style option. Dare yourself with some sheer exposure this season!
