This time it has been the sheer clothing look that’s been seen everywhere, this ‘see-through-thin fabric’ has been practically all over the red carpet at the Cannes Film Festival 2012, MET Gala2012 etc. So many celebrities have carried off this look so perfectly and so elegantly

Suniti Jham shows you how this fab look can be incorporated in your daily or formal attire as well.

Sheer Clothing


Sheer for Casual Attire

One way to sport this in a casual yet smart way is by wearing sheer blouses. Purchase these sheer blouses in vibrant or mellow colours by teaming these with skinnies, pants, palazzo pants or high waist skirts. They look well worn with any kind of bottoms by making you look trendy, simple and also adding a glimpse of ‘sheerness’. No one says you can’t wear more than one sheer at a time. Mix and match it by adding layers to your outfit.


Sheer for Formal Attire

I think sheer worn in a formal way is the best because it helps revealing without actually revealing too much. This fabric looks best on dresses, maxis and gowns. If your sheer dress number looks too ‘in-your-face’ throw on a blazer because it’s a perfect contrast of structured over sexy. The sheer fabric proves to be one of the smartest escape systems for women who are conscious of their arms because the sheer material makes it appear to be thin by taming down the fat giving you a toned arms look.

Sheer too sexy

Sheer too sophisticated

Diane Kruger in Jason Wu looks amazingly sophisticated and this is one of my favorites. Clean cut and well structured.

Sheer with a perfect balance of sophistication and sexiness

Sonam Kapoor in Alexnader McQueen, this combination is classic. Her red pout just adds the perfect ‘oomph’.

Sheer for me?

I think the sheer blouses for me would be a complete steal; I would either tuck them in with high waist skirts or jeans. Another small way for me to accessorise this sheerness would be by purchasing sheer nail polish. These colours with shine are light and simple but still helps me stay sheer.

Tell me how would you pull off sheer? I would love to know.
