How To Style Sheer Clothing

One of the key trends for 2017, sheer fabric has been seen all over the catwalks. Sheer dresses, tops, and cover-ups are pretty, glamorous and feminine. But, they’re definitely not the easiest to wear.

We have put together some of the best outfits from Instagram to give you some ideas on how to style this tricky trend.



This sheer black maxi cover-up is absolutely stunning, and really makes this outfit something special.

Amber wears some denim mini shorts and teams them with another key trend: a lemon print cropped top.

The white heels contrast beautifully with the black fabric, whilst the yellow handbag offers a pop of colour and prevents the outfit from being too dark.


An easy way to wear sheer fabric is with a maxi dress such as this gorgeous bejeweled look here.

This would be a fantastic option for a smart evening out or for a date night.

The dress features a black slip underneath which prevents the outfit from being too revealing.

Style this look with some gorgeous oversized sunglasses such as the ones Evelina wears here.

The Chloe CE114S offer some stunning oversized round frames, brown lenses and gold detailing.

They are also available in nine other colours.

Why not team a sheer blouse with some smart jeans or trousers like Sophie here?

This look is a gorgeous subtle way to get into the sheer trend.

Josie wears a Victoriana-style, embellished floral dress which features gorgeous sheer sleeves and neckline.

By keeping the sleeves long and the neckline high, it stops the sheer fabric from being too revealing.


This would be a gorgeous look for the office.

By teaming the long sheer skirt with a shirt dress, it creates a pretty yet professional look.

The skirt also cinches in at the waist, creating a feminine and flattering shape.


Why not inject some colour into your sheer outfit too?

Sheer fabric isn’t all black and white, as this pretty floral embellished maxi dress shows.

With a look like this, it is best to keep accessories simple and to a minimum, to prevent the outfit from being too busy.
