How To Wear Sheer For Spring

How To Wear Sheer For Spring

Once upon a time, I would not have dared to wear sheer. Anything 100% sheer, mildly transparent or from the see-through trend. Nothing. Because back in those days, first I did not have the confidence to pull off such pieces but also… and probably the most important reason… I was so afraid of what other people could think! I mean, I did try to experience a bit with fashion back in school but I received such a strong verbal beating that I eventually got back to blending in and stopped trying.

For a little bit more context… Once I was wearing bright red flare trousers and a blue jumper. Inevitably, people called me Superman all day. Fast forward to high school, I wore gorgeous red heels. Obviously people in my grade mocked me for it. Still the same year and another pair of heels. This time, it is my math teacher that. took great pleasure in bullying me in front of the whole class. A delight. Last but not least, I got a military jacket. from H&M. It was sold out everywhere and a fashion blogger’s favorite before fashion bloggers were a thing. Some of my classmates thought it was super funny to ask me every other minute if I was looking to join a circus (the jacket looks a bit like Monsieur Loyal’s). 

After reading that last paragraph, you probably get why I was then afraid to wear anything that would make me stand out from the crowd or attract unwanted attention. Then you’d get even more why I would not wear sheer for all the money in the world. Then I left high school and went to university. Although not free from bullying and constant judging, it was still fairly less than in high school. Moving abroad was the revelation. I lived in New Zealand for a year where people could not care less about me and my outfits. That’s when I decided to wear whatever I’d want,  including falling into the see-through trend if I wanted to.

So when I got back from New Zealand, I decided that the freedom I enjoyed back then was so good that there was no way I’d give up on it. No matter where I’d end up and how conservative that place would be. I started with Italy, then France and ended up in the United Kingdom. When it comes to fashion, British people are less judgmental. Thus, I could wear anything I wanted.  So I did. I still wore things I liked back in Italy and France, do not worry! However, it was quite refreshing to not feel the stare of others on me or get no catcall every other hour.

That’s why when the occasion presented itself, I decided that I could wear sheer, no problem and that I should if I happened to stumble sheer pieces that I’d liked. Like this super cute embroidered sheer top from Boohoo. Sure,  it it quite extreme since it does not hide anything at all. I would not have styled it with anything else than a black bra. I love the contrast.

Aren’t the little roses and vines of this see-through top the loveliest? They do add something a bit romantic to this top and outfit. How to wear sheer for spring or winter can be quite tricky if you do not feel confident enough or have no clue what to wear the piece with. Personally, I decided that the embroidery added enough details to go for extra simple secondary pieces: a. pair of distressed jeans and some light grey high heels. I have had those heels for quite some times and never got to actually wear them. Happy I got to finally wear them. All it took was for the see-through trend to come back! The heels do help to upgrade the outfit a bit.

Accessory-wise, I decided to wear sheer with a very simple black cross-body back with a bit of a Chanel vibe, a white watch from Daniel Wellington and a copper bangle which belongs to a friend of my sister’s (apparently). Overall, I think it is quite easy to wear sheer for trend and that the see-through trend can be styled quite easily.  As long as you feel comfortable in what you wear, that is all that matters! One last thing, no not let other’s closed minds and judgments rips you of the joy of feeling good in an outfit you love!

    This is an interesting piece! I don’t think I would wear it because I’m not exactly as fit as you, LOL. But you look really cute in this! I’m not sure the mesh tops would be super well received where I’m from but I have certainly seen them online quite a few times!

  2. February 25, 2018 / 2:32 am

    I love your jeans. Keep styling on em girl!

    See-through clothes really looks good on you. It is a very popular style all over the world. It was indeed a bold move to step out in that dress.

    I would have loved this outfit twenty years ago, but now, no, no one wants to see those parts of me on display, lol! Looks great on you though!

    Lovely outfit and its very confident looking! I love the shirt although I do not have a tummy made for public views (I’ll be kind and spare the world!) I did have several sheer mesh shirts during my teenage years although I was going through a gothic phase. This is very romantic and beautiful and works so well with the rest of the outfit!

    Your embroidered mesh top and the lingerie look you styled it in are beautiful!
    I have worn sheer tiered Hanky Panky petticoats and lace tops over lingerie in late autumn but wore a trenchcoat over my outfit until I was indoors.
    I love that see-through fashions and the underwear as outerwear looks are more in vogue than ever. It was hard to miss when Lady Gaga burst onto the scene, but since then I’ve noticed many of the most famous fashion designers have continued including sheer fabrics and the lingerie look in their collections – including S/S 2018. I’m loving seeing them on the runways.
    You look fabulous rocking that Boohoo sheer top with the black bra and stressed medium blue denim jeans.

    The see-through is awesome and it looks awesome on you! I’d probably make it “see-my-underneath-tshirt-through’ though ;)))

    I adore this see-through fashion trend, and I can’t wait to get on board with it once the weather here in Toronto warms up. Hello, summer!

    Love the see through fashion so much but most importantly I love that pair of sun glasses! It goes so well with the outfit and really stand out! I am going to look for one of this now.

  10. February 26, 2018 / 12:28 pm

    Your outfit looks great. I really like that top and it goes so well with the jeans …so roll on summer!

  11. February 26, 2018 / 1:46 pm

    My time with see-through clothes have probably passed but I think it’s so pretty! It’s definitely perfect for summer especially when the temperature is unbearable. I love how you styled this one with the jeans and all that! Looks super comfy.

  12. February 26, 2018 / 4:20 pm

    I love this top! Way to bring the 90s back! I really don’t have the confidence yet to wear something like this, but I am hoping one day I will. I think with the right makeup and accessories this can be a very classy look.

    You look amazing. I really like this outfit and how you have styled it. I love the sunglasses!

  14. February 26, 2018 / 9:18 pm

    I wish I didn’t have issues with my tummy area or else this would be perfect for hot days in Vegas. you look so cute! My fall option have always been stockings, boots and dresses.

  15. February 26, 2018 / 9:32 pm

    I think the top is super cute and so delicate with the little flowers. You look great wearing it!

    Love this outfit, the see-through top looks so pretty. I love the details and the embroidery on the top, nice pictures.

    You look gorgeous in your outfit. Your top with embroidered details is so lovely and stylish. I really like it.

  18. February 27, 2018 / 4:45 pm

    The top looks great on you and I like how you’ve created an outfit around it. I don’t think I would be so courageous so wear a see-through top though.

    This beautiful see through embroidery top looks so gorgeous on you. Equally elegant and comfortable as summer wear.

  20. February 27, 2018 / 8:20 pm

    I think this top is lovely and your overall look is very fresh! Opposite to you, I used to buy see through clothes when I was younger, but not anymore! After several pregnancies, my belly is not something I want to show ๐Ÿ˜›

  21. February 28, 2018 / 3:23 am

    See through is great design is worn properly like you did! I’m always a little afraid to wear such because I’m not that confident

    I’m always looking! Thanks for the suggestions. It’s always good to have ones that are tried and true!

  23. March 1, 2018 / 6:54 pm

    You look lovely in this outfit! I’m sure, though, that I would never be willing to wear see-through pieces. I already feel too exposed if I wear white or clothes made of a bit thinner fabric. ๐Ÿ˜›

    I have never worn a see-through top although I own several of them, I always put them on and take them off. Way to work it.

    I have to admit that I donโ€™t really have the confidence for see through tops but I think they can look really nice, especially for nights out.

    I’m absolutely in love with your style! I’ve been seeing jord watches everywhere, I think they’re so chic โ˜บ๏ธ

    The outfit looks good on you. Like you said wearing this takes confidence and not caring what people think of you, so I applaud you for your confidence. Would I wear it? Yes, but with a cami underneath. And it all goes together with the jeans and the heels.
