How do you deal with see-through fabric?
Let’s delve into fashion’s latest trend. The iconic naked dress trend is back, and it’s time for you to embrace the sheer look. This season has seen a massive resurgence of this trend. From celebrities on the red carpet to influencers on Instagram, the sheer outfit trend has made its comeback in all shapes and sizes from mini-skirts to long dresses. At first glance, wearing a see-through outfit might be intimidating, but there are methods you can use to make sure that your outfit looks fashionable, alluring, and graceful. Take your time when choosing the fabric. To avoid any wardrobe malfunctions, make sure that you wear a nude or complementary slip underneath if you don’t want your underwear to be visible. Additionally, accessorizing with statement jewellery makes sure that you exude confidence while still looking chic and elegant. Finally, pairing your sheer outfit with a gorgeous pair of on trend shoes is one of the most essential parts in completing your look.

What to wear under a see-through dress?
When it comes to styling a see-through outfit, the challenge is to look alluring and graceful without showing too much skin. The key is to choose the right undergarments and there are few great options to consider. If you want to join in with the naked dress trend a high-quality bodysuit, such as those made with sheer mesh or silk, is a great way to add texture and contrast under a sheer dress. Not only do bodysuits provide coverage in a stylish way, but they also create smoother lines for your silhouette. Lightweight and matte stockings or tights have the advantage of offering full coverage without being too heavy or adding bulk under the dress. Choose ones in neutral colours, such as black and nude, which will blend seamlessly with any dress while adding an interesting visual element. The slip dress is one of the most timeless solutions for wearing under a sheer outfit. Not only does it add an extra layer of protection against see through fabric, but it can also double as its own statement piece when paired with shoes or jewellery. A beautiful pair of pumps will ensure an elegant mood. Our timeless patent Jackie 85 pumps in black and white with slim T-bar and ankle strap will mean you’ll be ready to rock the naked dress trend like a pro!
How do you strategically place sheer panels?
When it comes to styling a see-through outfit, your main goal should be to accentuate your assets. See-through fabric can be used to strategically create a focal point on a part of the body that you want to draw attention to. For example, if you have long legs, you can opt for a sheer mini dress with panels at the sides or go for an overlay with sheer panels that extend upwards from the waist and slightly below the bust. This will draw attention to your legs while maintaining an elegant and alluring silhouette. Of course, you’ll need to pair with some fabulous women’s shoes to complement the look! Why not go all in and continue the see-through outfit theme? Our collection of mules includes the Vivienne range which have transparent heels. If you have long arms and broader shoulders, then another way of styling a sheer outfit is by opting for sheer panels at the top, neckline, or hemline. This technique is great for highlighting your figure and adding an element of sophistication to any look.
How do you choose the perfect see-through fabric for your skin tone?
Choosing the right fabric is key to rocking a see-through outfit. Of course, some fabrics appear more sheer than others, but the right choice will depend on your skin tone. For example, if you have fair skin, opt for a lighter fabric such as crochet or tulle to show off the curves of your body without taking the focus away from its natural colour. If you have medium or olive skin, look for bold colours like black and navy blue that will contrast with your complexion. Finally, for dark complexions, materials such as beige lace and chiffon work perfectly to reveal your shapely silhouette. If you’re wanting to rock the naked dress trend during the day pair with some mid-heels so you don’t feel too overdressed. Our Lisa collection come in a variety of shades to suit any occasion. For a more graceful and elegant look opt for nude but if you want to add a splash of colour to your sheer outfit go for red. Remember that the best way to make sure you’re choosing the right fabric is by finding something that complements your skin tone and not only looks good but also feels comfortable. This way you can make sure you feel confident in whatever sheer outfit you chose.
