3 Ways To Go Sheer In The Fall (And Not Freeze!) No Matter Where You're Going

Congratulations! You have the confidence to try out the sheer trend, and we all know that puffing up your bravado is the first step to sheer joy (ha!). While rocking a barely-there style doesn’t doesn’t exactly seem synonymous with autumn, it’s definitely possible to don sheer shirts, skirts and dresses well into October. Find out how to pull off the look no matter where you’re headed for the cooler months. We’ve got all of the answers here:

To Work

If you work in a super-conservative environment, we suggest you save the sheer for playtime, but if your 9-5 gives you a bit of sartorial wiggle room, you have the green light! Start with a sheer top in a neutral like black, cream or gray, and top it off with an “I mean business” blazer. If you’re still not sure if this look will fly with your boss, add a tank or a camisole under the shirt in a similar color. That’ll add some extra warmth just in case the temperatures really drop.

To Play

Even though I’m a huge fan of fall’s sheer paneling trend (perfect for a night out!), my all-time favorite outfit for grabbing drinks with friends come fall is a pair of leather pants and a sheer button-down, finished off with a pair of super-comfy chelsea boots and a show-stopping bib necklace. This look is easy to pull off no matter where you’re going: if it’s super dressy, switch out the booties for a pair of heels, and if it’s a bit more casual, opt for a pair of flats. If your confidence is hovering around the three-quarter mark, opt for a sheer top in with a pattern or texture, like polka dots, striped, or a pussy bow. Voila! Instant outfit.

To Brunch

Well, maybe not always to brunch, but you have a lot more room for creativity on the weekends. Whether you’re heading out for eggs benedict and bloody mary’s in the mid-afternoon, heading to the orchards for apple picking or spending your Sunday shopping with the girls, create an outfit that plays on the masculine/feminine dichotomy — throw on a sheer dress with a thin slip underneath, a utilitarian jacket or vest and a pair of calf-high boots. Finish it off with a chunky scarf for an unmistakably fall feel. If you’re looking to go sheer on the bottom, make sure there’s at least a foot of lining in the skirt to cover your ladyparts, then finish it off with a cozy knit for an effortlessly chic look. Tights under a sheer skirt are optional, but stay away from anything with a pattern.
