Sheer was a big trend for fall/winter and is shaping up to continue being a trend for spring/summer 2011.

A side-effect of the lingerie trend, sheer fabrics are a great way to play peek-a-boo with your favorite parts. Although I can’t condone sheer shirts,  a bit of sheer paneling here and there is sexy enough to stop traffic.

Pick a Part

Love your legs? Try a sheer skirt.

Beautiful decolletage? Try a trompe l’oeil neckline.

Sexy back? Pick up a dress with a sheer panel that goes all… the… way… down.

Or got killer curves? Just take a look at the Kardashian sisters. Their signature style is all about tight, body-con mini dresses with cut-outs and sheer bits.

Of course, don’t discount layering sheer over non-sheer. Even if you wear a tank under a sheer shirt, the texture and drape of the floaty fabric is still divine.


It should go without saying that if something is sheer and cut up to there, something else better be conservative. Just take a look above at Givenchy, Chloe and Lanvin. They chose to pair all of their sheer pieces with conservative, office appropriate pieces for a cool juxtaposition that reads as nonchalant sexy as opposed to just easy (in a bad way).
