Fashion tip: Wearing sheer tastefully

Sheer is sexy and although some people may put a bad name to it with the way they wear it, do not shy away. There are ways you can wear sheer and still come off classy.

Sheer is one of the most comfortable and sexiest fabrics to wear. And you know what the best part is? It can be worn
anywhere, anytime. However, if not worn the right way, your sheer outfit can quickly escalate from a classy to trashy look.
Here is how you can avoid that and have classy sheer looks every time.

Choose the right underwear
Anytime you know that you are going to be wearing anything sheer, ensure that your underwear is not showing at all. The
solution here is to choose black or nude coloured underwear. The idea is to have underwear on without it peeping through
your clothes.

Have a solid piece inside
If you have a midi length dress that is completely sheer, then you could consider having on a full length body suit and let
your sheer dress sit on top. A slip dress, in a similar shade to your sheer dress could also be a great option. Do not be
mistaken to think your panty and bra will do the trick.

Keep your accessories classy
One of the easiest ways to uplift any look is with your accessories. So if you are going for something sheer, endeavour to
accessorise it with classy and tasteful pieces. A little tote, some ankle strap heels or even structured earrings will do
the trick.

Wear sheer in minimal pieces
Instead of opting for a head to toe sheer look, how about you wear it in small bits? For instance, to your skinny jeans and
body suit look, you can add a sheer kimono for the perfect finish. Or you can wear the sheer detailing on your sleeves, top,
or the hem of your dress.
Whatever look you are going for, ensure that your sheer gives you a very tasteful but still elegant and sultry look. You
want your ensemble to be revealing without giving it all off, right?
