Clothing and accessories with sheer detailing are on trend this Spring. The Guardian shows us some examples of what exactly “the new sheer” looks like. More examples in their All Ages-in pictures series, in which they have styled the trend for different age groups.
The Invisible Woman put in her two cents on the topic back in January, and tells us why older women can wear sheer clothing too.
If you want to add a little sheer yourself, Refinery29 has a roundup of 17 subtly sheer pieces. The ASOS sweater with sheer striped sleeves (7) is my favourite.
