Sheer fabrics were one of the firmest trends spotted at Australian Fashion Week this year, with such shows as Zimmermann and Bowie sending ladylike misty creations cascading down the runway. And now it seems this subtly feminine fabric has floated its way towards red carpet domination as well with the help of an applique and bold hue edge injection. This look allows the wearer to show a little skin, while still looking chic and demure. Whether it’s with a sheer overskirt that adds coverage to an ultra-mini dress or an organza décolletage that hides yet highlights, it’s clear this timeless trend is having a resurgence
Elizabeth Banks chose a sheer, Elie Saab, lace body suit for the MTV Movie Awards.
