Spring Forward

Spring it on!

When spring finally rolls into town, we’re all ready to kick off those layers and dare to bare. Playing upon the transparent trend of last fall, sheers are here to add a little lightness to your wardrobe. Pastel shades make for a feminine, elegant look, and pleated or ruffled accents can easily be dressed up or down.

For an edgier take, amp up your usual LBD with a touch of transparency. And, if modesty is a factor, try more translucent prints or textures to keep you from feeling too exposed.

Still feeling skeptical? Being chic and sheer extends past the hanger. Look for scarves, cover-ups, or even shoes that have a little peekaboo action, and you’ll have this trend (un)covered.
