2014 brings a fresh take on transparency, with layers of sheer fabrics intended to add a three dimensional quality to spring and summer fashion. With each sheer overlay acting as a petal, the resulting layers appear rather lightweight and ethereal, and quite beautiful if done right >> Peacock-Print Batwing Blouse.

And since daring to bare morphed from statement to art – the art of exposing your skin subtly, is never a questionable manner. Key to sporting the sheer layers in a flawless manner is deciding early on what you want to show and how to show it. Plan to keep things basic and if you want to play upon bold colours, remember to match the under camisole to the sheer blouse’ overlay’s hue >> Gitanes Pleated Georgette Shirt
