Trendy Tuesday: Sheer

Try showing skin in a subtle way with sheer garments. We've been seeing it on every fashion blog and runway, and this trend doesn't seem to be slowing down. Sheer blouses are my fave, but with sheer tops comes the need for the proper undergarments. Some choose to hide it all with a nude camisole underneath, while others like showing off a good bra. When done right, sheer pieces can look classy and mature. Do you agree?

  2. I like the cami look!! The 'show your undergarment' look can be tacky if not done tastefully, which is so difficult!!

  3. I completely agree with your post. Though IMO, I wish the whole sheer lace pattern never existed! I have seen it worn wrong so, so many times.

    Regardless though, no matter how many phases I go through, sheer clothing is always my favourite :)

  8. I def can only wear a sheer top with a nude cami otherwise it would just be inappropriate- especially for a work place. I love these Trendy Tuesday posts!

  9. I actually really love the look of a sheer blouse with a decorative bra/bralette/tube bra underneath, but PN is quite opposed, haha. This outfit(http://helloloverr.blogspot.com/2012/01/outfit-out-of-my-head.html) has recently reignited my interest in sheer items and I'm now on a hunt for something similar!

    Sheer lace done right can look really good though!
