Like me, you might be a bit hesitant to give the sheer trend a go this Spring/Summer, (there is always the inherent risk of looking cheap or inappropriate with the wrong material or design). Also, some of us might still be fighting the old connotation that sheer garments are only decoys to cover up less-than-toned arms or other bodily misgivings.
If you’re a little intrigued nonetheless and want to find a way to take on the trend, then a piece like this adorable crochet and crepe mini-dress by Francine would be a fabulous addition to the wardrobe.
I love the delicate look of the soft taupe fabric contrasted by the crÃ¨me crochet elementsâ€¦.and even though the sleeves are fairly sheer, the soft blouson shape and the continued detailing pulls the entire look together, while keeping the transparency subtle. $369 at Wink. Also available in black & crÃ¨me and in all black.
