The hottest trend of the last 2 years is the increasingly sheer and see through fabrics that are going from runway wow to chic staple. Since 2006 when see-through garments were heating up the runways, many major labels have pushed the style into the mainstream of fashion consciousness. Emilio de la Morena’s Autumn(Fall)/Winter 2009/2010 was notable for the range of spring and summer styles that let you bare as much as you dare. The colour palette was vibrant and bold following the dark almost gothic looks of the past seasons’ see through styles.
There are many variations of the sheer and see through theme which include light, silky fabrics draped and shaped, layers, lace and embroidery. The one of a kind and unique scarf can complement the look; an unabashed celebration of femininity.
While lingerie-inspired clothing is all the rage, certainly it does raise questions of if there are any limits. Salvatore Ferragamo collection is the epitome of elegance and sex appeal with some daring see through sheers. Well beyond your local public decency laws, the style police would certainly advise having a heavenly body but that is subjective because really all you need is a little of the wild-child vibe to make a personal statement. If you want to experiment with this bold look then check out the clothes from American Apparel, Urban Outfitters and Piperlime. Here is an example from collegefashion.net for a budget friendly way to get sheer.
