The hot summer days are just around the corner, and it’s time to update your wardrobe with chic and high-fashion couture. Right now, most of our closets are filled with tops and t-shirt we hardly want to wear. So, we need new designs to revamp our collections. One of the smartest pieces is see-through or sheer outfits.
They look simply gorgeous if carried well. However, many girls refrain from investing in them, just because they don’t feel sure about styling them. Also, others don’t feel sure about revealing way too much skin. If these are your concerns with sheer outfits, here are some easy hacks for you.
Pair With A Nude Lining
We are not just talking about covering your bodice with a nude lining. Nowadays, there are various types of shapewear and bodysuits available, with pieces giving full arms and legs coverage. While investing in a lining, make sure that it matches your skin tone perfectly. Don’t just go for any random light or darker shade, take time to decide what might suit you the best.
Matching Top On The Inside
If you want to enhance the beauty of your see-through couture, one of the best ways is by pairing it with a top that has the same tone. For instance, under a black see-through top, sport a black crop. It will look stunning, without actually revealing too much skin. However, be smart while purchasing the top. You want to buy something that has noodle straps and is fitted. If not, you might end up looking clumsy.
Overcoats And Shrugs
Who says shrugs and coats are just for winters and not for the summers! There may be a difference in the fabric of most pieces, but nothing can beat the charm of a classic blazer during summers. Donning a coat over a sheer shirt, or top gives that uber-chic appearance. Without showing much, you can let your body do the talking. The coats look best with a button-down shirt. If not, make sure you are not wearing anything baggy. Something fitted will simply look attractive, helping you to make heads turn!
Crochets Are A Great Alternative
If you still feel you won’t feel confident in sporting a see-through outfit, switch to crochet tops. These give an illusion of see-through but are actually not. Wear them with black, white, nude (nude nail paints), or any colour lining, and there is no way you won’t be making others sit and take notes. Don’t even worry about style, there are various designs available in the market, from crop tops to bra tops.
Think About The Lighting
Yes, we absolutely love sheer or see-through dresses, but they also come with a couple of limitations. While dressing up in your home, under normal lights, you might not be able to see how the dress might appear in bright light. This can be under the sun or even at a party where there are huge lights available. To avoid such wardrobe malfunctions, use your mobile torch. Flash it on your dress, if you can see your skin, it might also be visible under the sun or other lighting. Change the lining you’re wearing to something darker.
