Sheer Here

Mesh/ sheer fabric would make most HR employees cringe. But thankfully, we don’t have HR employees at work. Haha. Anyway, as mentioned here, this top in sheer fabric ( I'd usually joke it in my gay lingo as Ed "Sheer-an" lol) was really purchased for gym purposes but knowing myself, I wouldn’t stop finding ways to get more mileage out of it. It’s true what most write-up would say about sheer, it’s one of those fabrics that looks appealing in the runway but hard to translate in real life.

I guess the easiest way to do it then would have to be through the third-piece rule (read it here for reference). A third piece such as sheer clothing adds a definition to your garment. Heck, a suggestion of skin (in the right places of course) makes your outfit instantly sexy. Here’s how I paired mine.

Under a black jumpsuit,

Top: H&M; Jumpsuit: Topshop; Belt/ Bag: Mango; Shoes: Miss Selfridge
Under a crop top, just opt for high-waisted trousers/ culottes  for extra coverage.

Top: H&M; Crop top/ Culottes: Topshop; Shoes: Marks & Spencer
And of course, under an LBD that guarantees you daytime chic and can be extended at night for that evening glamour.

Top: H&M; Dress: Mango; Shoes: Zalora
Are you a fan of this sheer trend? How did you style yours? :)
