Buying Into Sheer for Spring 2008

Sheer clothing for spring is not as difficult to manage as you might think. First, unless you are some sort of sartorial superstar, remove the idea of wearing sheer pants. Second, be mindful of proportion. You'll notice in the runway pictures from the previous sheer trend post that the more see-through the outfit, the more skin was actually covered up. This trend is more about illusion and less about letting it all hang out. Third, only show what you are comfortable with. If the idea of a sheer dress makes you blush, wear a slip under it. You could also try the trend in smaller areas like your arms or collar area.
First: black sequin tunic, Urban Outfitters $24.99
orange pintuck blouse, Forever 21 $22.80
Second: ivory tunic with black embroidery, Yoana Baraschi, Bluefly $237
black backless party dress, Mara Hoffman, Shopbop $220
purple color block dress, Sweet Pea, Bluefly $69.99
Third: jade tunic, Forever 21 $22.80
