Sheer and Stylish Garments are extraordinarily trendy this season, and with good reason. Anything light and sheer is bound to be both fashionable and comfortable in this kind of heat. When you wear sheer and stylish garments for the summer months, you should opt for dark navy and black for an edgy take on the trend, or choose light pastel colours for something a little more whimsical. Sheer garments have the potential to be see-through, so layer a slip or camisole underneath for modesty. Below are just a few sheer and stylish garments that you may want to check out.

Sheer and stylish garments can take the form of a range of items. I tend to favour sheer tops such as this Acne blouse. This silk button down blouse features dolman sleeves, a mandarin collar, and asymmetrical hem. It would look great paired with cropped black jeans and patent ballet flats.

Cropped tees are enjoying renewed popularity, especially among the more youthful fashion scene. To work the cropped tee trend, choose a loose-fitting, floaty fabric. This particular tee comes in a lovely yellow colour, features smocked sleeve cuffs and a single front pocket. If you’re wary of showing your midriff, pair a cropped tee with a high waisted skirt or pants to create balance.

This cape cardigan is an excellent layering piece. Most sheer and stylish garments are made from silk or chiffon materials, but this cardigan is actually a knit. The nude colour is on-trend for spring/summer and would work well across a range of colour palettes. Layer it over outfits to create a drape effect, or cinch in with a belt to tame the volume.

If you love a good maxi dress, try this sheer number on for size. It features a gathered empire line waist, sheer skirt, and solid top. The skirt is partially lined so as to retain some modesty! It comes in a lovely tan colour, which I think is something quite different for a dress. Add some peachy pink accents for a pop of colour.

This black maxi skirt would make a great wardrobe staple. It is made from silk georgette and features a shorter lining. The A-line cut of the skirt is also very flattering. Keep the look casual with a cotton tank, or go glam with a beaded bustier.

This cream top, a lovely sheer and stylish garment, features a cotton body and sheer chiffon sleeves. The long chiffon sleeves are a great design detail.
