Spring is (finally!) upon us, and as such, it’s time to start shedding those countless layers of hats, scarves, and furs in favor of lighter-weight sundresses and cutoffs. During this time of seasonal change, you’ll often find me consulting the September runway shows for style inspiration as I begin to refresh my wardrobe for the coming months. Since it’s no cheap feat to do a complete overhaul of my closet season after season, I often like to make sure that I first and foremost invest in any spring staples that may need replacing; from there, I focus my attention towards any seasonal trends that pique my interest.
This season, I’m especially loving the delicate nature of the sheer organzas, laces, and mesh that popped up on the runways of Calvin Klein, Balmain, and Burberry, among countless others, and I’m eager to find ways to incorporate the gossamer trend into my own wardrobe. But alas, mesh and other sheer fabrics are a tricky beast: done well, they turn you into a total showstopper, but when poorly executed, you’re…still a showstopper, sure, but in an unsavory, exhibitionist kind of way.
So based on my own trials and tribulations in learning how to style sheer clothing, I’ve created the ultimate list of do’s and don’ts to consider when trying out the mesh trend. Click through above to master the sheer look!
