The Secret To Wearing Sheer This Autumn

Let's be more transparent - here's 3 ways to wear the tricky trend

The translucent trend has made its way from the catwalks and red carpets straight into high street stores.

From sheer dresses to see-through skirts, the trend is actually pretty wearable. You can choose to bare it, or find clever ways to add more coverage without skimping on style.

So if you’re keen to try it out, keep scrolling for three outfit ideas that prove sheer dressing can suit every age and shape. 

1. Layer It

There’s no denying how revealing a sheer shirt can be, but you can limit the amount of skin you feel comfortable showing. Instead of adding a plain bandeau or singlet, double up using a tank top underneath, with your shirt worn either open or closed. As for your accessories, draw attention to your top half with chunky hoop earrings.

2. Pant Pairing

Show off your pins in a more modest way with some sheer pants with built-in shorts. A popular style of the season, wear them instead of jeans for an evening out – just add a boxy blazer and statement jewellery to really bring your outfit together.

3. Add Length

While sheer skirts are the perfect holiday companion over swimmers, reach for something a little more cosy for autumn. Team your sheer skirt with an oversized sweater to give you more coverage, then and add a pair of long boots to complete your look.
