Try a sheer dress to be the cynosure of all eyes!
Sheer fabric is made using thin thread and/or with knit of low density which results in a type of cloth that is semi-transparent and flimsy. These fabrics may become see-through when wet. If you dare to bare, sheer dress is completely your thing. If you do not feel comfortable enough with the thought of sporting such an uninhibited form of clothing, still want to give a dress in sheer a try, go for one that is made of partial sheer and partially of any other kind of fabric. Sounds interesting, ain’t it?
While a few years ago, it was confined to being a seasonal accent, it has now emerged as a year-round trend, being given new heights in runways and ramps. The alluring aesthetic that it exudes is indeed one of its kind that highlights your femininity in a ravishing manner. Though some still perceive it as an off-trend, as it is highly susceptible to bordering on overtly seductive and extremely bold, though, if worn in a balanced way, it can really make a fashion statement. However, you should take care that it remains subtle and not too much on-your face, for, as fashion experts remark, “sheer can be anywhere from pretty, fresh and stylish to trashy.”
Since spring is right here and summer is almost around the corner, it is the best time to embrace sheer. You can play with the lengths and the layers, and use it to your fullest advantage by letting the sheer highlight your feminine beauty. The main purpose of sheer is to show off skin where you believe your best assets lie. It is basically a sheer fabric over a thicker, opaque material of clothing .If you feel you’ve got great arms to flaunt, go for sheer sleeves. If baring your midriff isn’t much of an issue to you, then choose a sheer dress that reveals your midriff in a sensuous manner. The most celebrated designers and retail chains all across the globe are trying to use sheer in such a way that subtle sheer effects can be implemented on dresses as side panels or adding them as sleeves or sheer black mesh fabric onto an evening dress of some other fabric.
Celebs such as Rihanna, Jennifer Lawrence and Ellie Goulding have all worn sheer dresses and how! You can take a cue from them and bring out the style-o-holic in you alive by actually going a mile extra and trying something that not many would dare giving a shot to. However, make sure that you take sufficient precautions to avoid awkwardness or worse still, any kind of wardrobe malfunction. Try it only if you believe you have got the chutzpah to carry it well and with ease. Also, a sheer dress will look really out of place if worn during the daytime or for any casual outing or a simple gathering of friends. It should best be reserved for late evening cocktail parties or some glamorous occasion, where you would not end up looking like the ‘odd one out’ in a sheer dress. The right sheer, the right accessories, the right attitude and the right occasion – a combination of these will ensure that you look like a glam doll!
