How To Style A Sheer Blouse
This spring/summer 2014, it’s all about adding a feminine and flirty touch to your everyday style and what better way than by teaming your printed skirt or go-to pair of denims with a sheer blouse.
Here at AlibiOnline, our favourite brands and designers like Sass & Fate, Wish and Cooper St are embracing the sheer top trend in luscious laces, feminine prints and classic monochromatic hues. We love using this sheer blouse trend to showcase a girlie side, that can even be worn to the office! Find out how you can embrace the sheer trend with our top fashion tips.
Wear a plain tank top that’s the same color as your blouse underneath it
Simply, easy-to-wear an oh so versatile, teaming a plain matching tank under a sheer blouse creates an instant cover up. Try a white cami under a long sleeved white pussy tie blouse for the office, or a lace singlet teamed with light denim for the weekend.
Play with contrasting underwear for a sexy chic look
Want to wow your date? Think a black lace t-shirt or long sleeved top with a white bra or even floral printed. A little out there, make sure you add a sophisticated touch by teaming with structured pants and jacket with natural makeup.
Add a structured crop top
One of this season’s biggest trends, the crop top, is not for everyone. Now you can wear one without completely showing off your midsection, by throwing on a sheer cami or blouse over the top. We love leather bralettes or floral cross over tops with a black lace top.
Add spanx or matching underwear
Simple and sophisticated, nude or neutral coloured spanx or matching underwear lets you stick to the sheer trend without showing too much skin. Try a spanx cami or full slip or a nude coloured bra – perfect to wear under white.
Layer on accessories
Whatever option you choose to wear under your sheer blouse, you can add a little something extra by adding statement accessories. We love animal printed scarves that can be worn to cover the bust, for a fun take on the sheer trend. Think animal prints scarves, and long line beaded necklaces .
Use sheer clothing to add texture to a similar toned outfit
Think netting, lace or embellishment, whatever your style, sheer is a great way to add texture and break up an outfit in similar tones. Netting adds a sporty vibe to a flounce hem skirt and lace adds a girlie touch with ripped denim.
Play with textures and embellishment
Beading, embroidery and fringing are great ways to show a little sheer and cover up with statement embellishments.
Make menswear-inspired silhouettes more feminine with sheer fabrics
Layer a sheer button-up over a bra or camisole then add pants for a more conservative look or a skirt for something a little sexier.
