Stun In The Sun: Sheer Maxi Skirts

Lace has been adorning everything lately, from headbands and tights, to t-shirts and sweaters.  It’s flirty, feminine, and delicate…unless you pair it with a moto-jacket and leather boots for some rocker edge.  But lately we’ve seen this trend as the full fabric of products, not just appearing in its average cameo as trim or detailing.  This means sheerness, and lots of it.  For the day, girls appropriately layer see through blouses with camisoles underneath, but for going out many feisty chicks have added some sex appeal to the style by baring only a bra under it.  This looks best with a bra matching the lace, personally I prefer black on black.  But this summer, new sheer styles are by way of not just lace, but airy materials such as chiffon, and not just for tops, but for gorgeous skirts!  To this I say sheer brilliance (pun intended)!  Maxi skirts and dresses are already stunning and perfect for summer outings, but with a twist of showing some leg in the most unexpected way, it’s even better!  It is a naughty spin-off to prairie girl chic.  Most skirts will come with two layers, one acting as the short cover-up underneath with a longer one to overlay.  To maintain a certain amount of modesty, make sure you wear spandex or a body-con miniskirt underneath if it is only one layer to ensure your look is sultry, not shocking.  Note: showcasing your panties is likely to draw the attention away from how lovely and stylish you look and direct it to the fact that, well,your underwear is on display.  Some of my favorite picks are:

Topshop- $76 $30
