Dress Me Up: Oh, Sheer

See-through clothes make most gals say, oh, sheer. But we can't avoid the trend altogether because it was everywhere on the Spring runways, including BCBG (left) and Marc Jacobs.

What we can do is find a sheer style that works for our lifestyles and body types. That's precisely what a good friend of mine did recently when she bought a see-through watercolor slip and wore it as an ultrafemme dress.

The key is to find a slip to pair underneath. Pick a fun color so it purposefully shows and mimics the runways. The next time you hit up a department store, don't overlook the lingerie department. Find a sheer slip that can pass as a dress or top, wear it with a colorful slip, and sheer on!

I like the new sheer, it's floaty and an accent to actual material, usually a dress, rather than old sheer which was sheer material *replacing* normal material - which just got tacky really fast. I'll take this trend. Not to mention that it works great with shirts if you don't do dresses or your legs aren't your greatest feature.

I love the watercolor slip/dress. Kind of hippy trend and sheer trend at the same time.

Unless I was trying to add color underneath, I'd try to find a nude slip to let the dress stand alone and do its thing.
