Sheer Pants Spring 2012 Trend

Brave Enough to Bare (Almost) All? Shop Spring's Sheer Pants Trend Now


From slightly transparent to fully sheer, Springs runways were rife with barely there bottoms (just see the varying looks above from Vera Wang, Rachel Zoe, and Badgley Mischka). Let's be real: it's not the easiest trend to pull off — but with the right top, shoes, and self-confidence level, there are definitely ways to make this look work for the everyday. Whether you try skintight lace, like at Vera Wang, or wide-leg palazzos á la Rachel Zoe, just be sure to pair your breezy sheer pants with a solid top, preferably one with a higher neckline or otherwise modest fit so as not to enter overly skin-baring territory. Keep things simple accessory-wise: think pretty flat sandals, a gold chain, and a crossbody bag. We're especially excited to try a sheer pair of pants over a bikini, in place of a wrap or cover-up. If you're feeling brave too, just click through the widget below to shop some of our sheer pant picks.
