How do I wear that trend-sheer clothing

Last year I decided to look forward rather than back and made a list of the trends that will be coming up in 2009.  Now that we’re in 2009, I figure it’s time to start incorporating those trends.  I also realized that everyone may not know how to do this so the “How do I wear that trend…” series is back up and running.  The first trend that I mentioned for 2009 was sheer clothing.  I know that some of you that are a bit more conservative may have written this trend off before even considering it but you don’t have to.  It is possible to take part in the sheer trend without walking around showing off your underwear.  Actually, I advise against doing that anyway.

The best way to do the sheer thing is to find items that aren’t completely see through but have sheer fabric incorporated in the clothes.  For example, you could take a shirt that is sheer and layer a non sheer shirt, jacket or sweater over it.  This way the sheer item shows but it doesn’t show all of you and it can be very tasteful and fun.  Below are some pictures of different ways to wear sheer clothing.  If you’ve dabbled in the trend, send me your pics and I will post them as well.  I’d love to feature some sheer-in-action shots!

These are just to give you some general ideas of what you can do with sheer clothes without being overexposed.  Enjoy!

  1. I like this style, specially the second photo. But the third one have some size problems on front page. It looks so big on my internet explorer. Probably something is wrong with it.

  2. Thank you for the feedback. I will check out the photo you mentioned and see if I can’t fix it.
