So you finally decided to give the naked dress a try, or you picked up a fishnet bodysuit on your latest shopping trip. Hopefully you've got the right underthings to complete the ensemble. With a high-waisted brief, a nude slip, or a supportive bra, see-through styles can appear sophisticated — modest, even — and not at all skimpy.

Since it can be tricky to navigate the world of lace and floaty chiffon, we've rounded up the latest sheer trends and suggested the appropriate lingerie to accompany them. Scroll to become a master before you hit the street in this bold look.

A Mesh Tee

A sports bra in a contrasting color, a nude bralette, or one that matches the tone of your top.

A Sheer Maxi

A pair of nude spanx or tight briefs with a strapless nude bra or pasties.

A Tulle Skirt

A bodysuit or high-waisted briefs in the same color.

A Lace Camisole

Something strappier to play up the neckline or a tiny bralette in the same shape.

A See-Through Bodysuit

Whether in fishnet, mesh, or nylon, choose a bra you want the world to see. Whether that means something with embroidery or a silhouette that provides more coverage is up to you.

A Lacy Romper

Biker shorts and a lace bra in a contrasting shade will do.

A Sheer Printed Blouse

Choose a sleek design — long or short — that doesn't distract from the pattern on your top.

A Chiffon Dress For a Fancy Event

You'll want to appear tasteful, so go for a nude slip or a suit with full coverage.

Sheer Pants

Get playful, especially when you're near the beach, and choose a bikini bottom with a contrasting strip or a high curve to make your legs appear long.
