How To Wear Sheer

Lighten up with easy, breezy sheer fabric. See how Emily from Stiletto Beats wears the trend for both work and play.

Sheer has been a key trend in fashion for some time but finding new ways to wear the style is a challenge. The secret is finding see-through fabrics in weights that work for day and night.

Airy chiffon is the perfect way to wear this trend during the day. A maxi skirt or billowy blouse shows just enough skin without being too provocative. (I know what you're thinking, and yes. You can wear sheer to the office!) A great way to incorporate it into your office wear is to find pieces that feature transparent sleeves. I wore my day look to a casual lunch. I paired a navy chiffon maxi skirt with a floral top. A side braid and neutral sandals finish off the look.

Lace is synonymous with sexy, and it's a great way to add sheer to your evening look. Go for lace in dark colors like black and navy. I paired a navy lace crop top with an exposed bra and black mini skirt. Of course you don't have to be as daring with your sheer lace! Look for lace body-con dresses that feature peak-a-boo panels or even a great pencil skirt.

I started my blog, Stiletto Beats, in 2010 as an assignment for my Fashion Journalism class and quickly fell in love. After years of blogging about fashion news and inspirations I decided to take it to the next level, incorporating my daily outfits and personal life. A little about me? Well, I love bunnies, eat way too much candy and love to write sappy quotes about life, love and surviving my quarter life crisis in Los Angeles. Stiletto Beats is my fashion diary dedicated to anyone who has experienced the happiness that comes from the perfect pair of shoes or the perfect song on a not-so-perfect day.
