The sheer look has been around since the ‘90s or even before and still remains a chic choice when you want to look dressed up and elegant. Sheer clothes are a slightly risqué choice as they do expose your skin. But you can choose how much you would like to show off by selecting a see through top or a skirt that covers what you want to cover, making you feel more comfortable.
Sheer clothes can be paired with a wide variety of inner and outer pieces like bralettes, camisoles, jackets, blazers, and cardigans. Depending on how you style your ensemble, you can get different looks ranging from boho and casual to red carpet and hot.
Take a look at these ideas to understand how you can rock the sheer style.
The classic sheer style
Pieces for this look are easy to find, easy to wear and easy to accessorize. Generally monochromatic, a colored or black see through top over the same colored camisole can make you look dressed up in minutes. Pair such tops with well-fitted trousers in a basic or contrasting color and you are ready to head to a party, brunch or luncheon meeting.
See through tops with a pretty bralette or sportswear underneath is sure to make a strong style statement. Sporty sandals will complete your look. You can choose to go bold with colors for your sportswear here.
If you do not feel bold enough to show off your lingerie or skin in sheer clothing, use layering to add dimension to what you are wearing and also to give you some coverage. See through tops can go well with a smart blazer over them. You can also use the blazer as an addition to turn a casual look into a semi-formal one at any time. This works well, especially in summers or for day time events.
See through jackets and coats are the best way to flaunt what you are wearing without having to remove the coat. These can also double up as beach cover ups if required.
If you wish to go all put and try something bold, a sheer back mini or knee length dress, or a sheer bodysuit paired with trousers or a skirt can definitely look glamorous. A sheer dress with embellishments is also a striking choice for chic evening parties. These may be paired with bright colored clutches, pumps, or earrings.
Crochet tops are see through tops and yet show little, depending on the intricacy of the work. These give you a summery or bohemian look, especially in lighter colors. Strategically placed stitch patterns can cover certain areas you do not wish to show, or you could wear bralettes and camisoles of the same color underneath.
Sheer clothing for men
See through shirts are available in various styles for men too. Paired with denims and blazers, these give a casual yet dressy look.
