It’s Okay To Wear Sheer In The Winter, And Here’s 14 Reasons Why
Earlier this spring and summer, the top trend was a sheer thing thanks to designers like Preen and Christopher Kane. But now that the temps are dropping, an entirely sheer silk blouse might not be such a good idea. The solution? Little black dresses and chic black tops with sheer cut-outs. (Like leather, a little bit can go a long way.) The cut-outs can be along the waist to flatter your figure, in stripe-form for a peek-a-boo twist, or even as sheer, see-through sleeves. The beauty behind this simple detail is that it completely revamps and modernizes your staple LB...anything. Plus, a black top with sheer cut-outs can easily be dressed up for a night out with jewelry or worn super casual with boyfriend jeans and sneakers. Happy, sheer lovers? Now you can show off your favorite look all year long. Read more fashion trends and news like teddy fur, velvet sunglasses, and totally inappropriate jewelry.

Preen and Christopher Kane created sheer blouses with panels (or bows a la Kane) grazing across the chest. Temperley London produced an optical illusion with alternating stripes of sheer and opaque colors, while Topshop Unique and Erdem covered the see-through materials with geometric shapes or embellished motif.
