The easiest way to pull off this jacket is by having it colour coordinated with the rest of your outfit. You could go for a monotone look, meaning if your inner outfit is blush, then keep your see through jacket in a similar tone.

Let it be your pop colour of piece
The nature of this jacket makes it stand out, so using it as the colour detail for your look would be a great idea. The trick is to keep the rest of the outfit muted and toned down. Then add your jacket, in a splashing shade, to complete the outfit. Choose the colour basing on where you are dressing to, or what kind of look you are trying to achieve. You could go full colour splash with a hot pink or lime green, so simply have a pale blue or baby pink as your shade of choice.

Colour block your jacket
