Sheer Genius

Sheerly you can tell what this post is all about by the title? I just gave you a hint. It has to do with walking on that borderline...seductive versus slutty. Showing a bit of skin without going too far. But how far is too far? That always seems to be the question. 

This Spring 2013 is all about that veiled, peekaboo look. Any shape or form. Show off that midriff and be a little daring, just go for it! This sheer goodness has been seen all over the runway, from Balenciaga, Haider Ackermann, Akris, Tom Ford, and many many more. I just HAD to try it out for myself. 

Millau silk blouse  TOPSHOP maxi skirt  Nine West ankle booties  Forever 21 envelope clutch 

This look is considerably more tame than some of the looks I came across on the runway. Some of those designers really know how to take risks and dive right in. I wanted my look to keep the sheer idea yet still be wearable. 

Leopard print is sexy, so these ankle booties were a must wear for this outfit. I have to tell you a secret, this TOPSHOP maxi skirt is actually on crazy sale in store (only $9.99) at Nordstrom. Bargain!! High slit maxis are great for two reasons; they are way easier to walk in and they are stinkin' cute! As for the blouse, I have struggled to figure out how to wear it for about a year, but now that this sheer trend is in...I can rock it like this :P Overall the look has some definite sex appeal, but its not too overt. Mission accomplished.
