INSPIRATION AND ADVICE

5 ways to style out summer sheer

By Rebecca Wade, August 8, 2017

Whether featuring ruffles, embroidery or more layers than a cake, peekaboo fabric is where it’s at this year. From candy-colored pastels for those pretty vibes to dark-lace overlays for your night-out thing, here are five #AsSeenOnMe stars stepping out in sheer sartorial perfection…

Back to black

Introducing the prettiest wedding-guest dress you’ll find this season. Switching up your average Joe midi by opting for a sheer number helps soften up the silhouette during the summer months. To complete the look, keep it classy with a sharp, boxy handbag and heeled mules.

Rosé glow

A pastel-pink sheer dress with polka-dot detailing layered over grungy black cutoffs and a crop = the pretty-punk festival remix you’ve been searching for. To amp up the cool factor, finish with fishnet socks and skate sneaks. Or, for rainier days, go for chunky hardware boots.

Dare to bare

The trick to sporting a translucent top is subtlety and this #AsSeenOnMe star has it down. For starters: pair with a stripped-back bralet then enlist the help of intricate, embroidery detailing to add some extra coverage. Balance out your slightly-more-revealing top half by keeping the rest very simple with a distressed-denim skirt, sunnies, sneaks and a slick 'do.

Gold rush 

For a jazzy outfit to spend the rest of summer in, remember that the color palette is key. Wear a baby-blue overlay with lemon-yellow jeans, but — to avoid going OTT — finish with a plain denim jacket and a black, quilted cross-body bag.

Fields'n'frills

Millennial-pink tones have reigned supreme this season and so have layers upon layers of ruffles — which make this tulle number a match made in heaven. Go hard for those '70s feels by pairing with a blue-jean crop, sunshine shades and chunky boho bling.
