Less is more? Well seems like that’s the craze this season. We are slowly transitioning into Spring/ Summer and it seems absurd to even THINK sheer or lace is the ‘in thing’, have you been outside? But as Rihanna kindly reminds us sexy is definitely in style (in all honesty, she has been telling us this since the ‘good girl’ went bad). But it’s Rihanna, no one quite does ‘naked’ like she does. Remember the CDFA fashion awards
? or a few years ago when she channeled sheer and lace at the MET GALA
And finally, fashion has given in to the CDFA Fashion Icon (2014) and we can now add a touch of risque to our wardrobes.
For SS15 sheer was popular in every city (whether it maybe elegant New York, or edgey London, and as Rihanna has demonstrated, this trend is not for the faint hearted.
Delicate sheer was seen on the catwalks sophisticated and sultry feel (see Tom Ford), as we also witnessed Givenchy opting for elegant lady-like silhouettes in sheer fabrics and lace. Rochas featured chiffon and organza in their numbers, some were more risque than others, but this showed this trend can defintely be work fo both day wear and night wear. Turn this lusty season staple and transform it into sexy elegance with a delicate, feminine lace insert. If you dare of course, you can take a leaf from some of the designers and go for head to toe sheer or if you’d rather leave something to the imagination, go for either a sheer/ lace top or bottom and pair with opaque materials.
