In this brain-melting heatwave, we give thanks to sheer fabric and take a cue on how to style it from these bloggers
Sheer fabrics are taking over the fashion world by storm, be it on the runways or on the streets of the most stylish cities. Our sweltering climate should be enough reason to love this easy breezy Spring/Summer trend, but a lot of you might find it intimidating since sheer practically means see-through. Have no fear, we’ve got you covered! The beauty of sheer fabrics is that you can play up the cool factor with layers, textures and accessories. The key is to either go sheer on top or bottom (but never both) and also to always wear appropriate undergarments (think classy not trashy)! Whether you want to keep it demure with a peek-a-boo approach or make it bold with a statement piece, have fun and experiment. Have a look at our favourite fashion bloggers ensembles and get inspired!
