Trend to Try: Layering Sheers

Labor Day may be fast approaching, but we’re not quite ready to say goodbye to these summer days just yet. Let’s savor the last few weeks of the season with light layers and tons of chic. Lately, all I’ve wanted to wear are feminine, flowy fabrics like chiffon, tulle and gauzy cotton and I can’t imagine anything more ladylike and romantic than these translucent fabrics. They’re perfectly light and airy for days spent in the sun and love to be layered for those cooler nights as Fall rolls in. Plus, I’ll take any opportunity I can get to feel like a ballerina and twirl around all day in a pretty tulle skirt.

Sheer fabrics are notably mysterious and intriguing and make you feel truly feminine and confident when you wear them. But how do we work this trend without exposing too much? Here’s a simple guide for looking super chic in sheer fabrics all day, every day.

Style Tip No 1: Layer It On  - Don’t be afraid to layer sheer fabrics to suit your outfit work for all temperatures. If you vary up the types of fabrics and mix solids with prints, they really begin to interact with each other and create a dynamic look. Let them truly shine with simple white jeans and a white tank underneath.

Style Tip No 2 : Sheer in Shades. Sheer fabrics give off a wispy, ethereal effect to an ensemble. Play this up by dressing in tonal whites adding a touch of color with a solid basic tank. The simple color palette makes it easy to wear and lets you truly shine.

Style Tip No 3 :  Accessorize with Confidence. Chiffon dresses never, ever fail. Layer a light scarf in the same color palette and use unexpected accessories to pick up different compliments of the dress’s statement color to complete an outfit perfect for a date night or evening with the girls.
