Trend Report: SHEER!

Everywhere you look, especially on the fashion front, you are seeing sheer materials. I thought I'd take this opportunity to do a review on the trend. I've never actually done anything particularly formal on this blog, so I may as well start now.

Being completely honest: I ABSOLUTELY LOVE THISSSSSSS TREND! It has a slightly formal feel, while simultaneously being on the casual side, with there commonly exposing a full leg, or full torso. Designers around the world are taking advantage, and we are seeing them everywhere. Just quickly, I wouldddd recommend if you are somewhat self-conscious, by layering  underneath, you still get the same effect, though not as exposing.

There are numerous designs and colours, though the material is commonly a chiffon or lace, though occasionally (I) see a mesh, which personally looks amaaahhzzing! With skirts, dresses and shirts it;s incredibly over-whelming and crave-worthy! In fact, I purchased a beautiful chiffon button up shirt in City Beach (an Australian store), with gorgeeeeous lace cutouts at the back.

Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen look incredible, as they always do, though by pairing a sheer maxi skirt with a fur coat, and simply smashing hair and makeup - she's definitely pulled off a favourite look, that I take much inspiration from. This, may possibly be myyyy first dream outfit of the year.

Here are more pictures, that I admire:

I ENVY THESE PEOPLE ENORMOUSLY! Why, must they be soooo much cooler than me? ahahhahhaaaaa!
Together I have 5 sheer items of clothing, and each I LOVE enormously! Comment below if you have any, and link pictures of YOUR, yesss your looks below! I'm ready to be inspired by your ultimate taste in clothing!

I hope you enjoyed!


  1. MK & Ashley have always so much style!

  2. I just found you on Chictopia - +1 chic. And you said NOT to read your blog, so of course I had to ;) Nice compilation of pics for this "sheer" trend. I think the Olsens did it best, personally; on others, it just winds up looking too hipster/poseur for me. Hope you're having a good week :) Best regards! xx
