It may seem counter-intuitive to wear sheer fabrics in the cooler months but many designers have created pieces that that pair heavier fabrics with sheer, which make them perfect for Fall. Paris, London, and New York fashion weeks all showcased sheer fabrics for the Fall 2010 season, often with pieces that easily transition from Summer to Autumn.
If worn correctly, sheer fabrics can look elegant and sexy. Remember that sheer fabrics are naturally revealing, so be careful how you wear them. Sheer does not necessarily mean voile fabrics, many designers, like Julien MacDonald, have incorporated lace into a look.
How to wear:
- Choose pieces with sheer necklines and/or sleeves
- Wear a sheer blouse under a knit top or dress
- Choose a top or dress that has sheer paneling in the body and wear a contrasting colored tank underneath.
