If you are into fashion you cannot have missed this new trend: the sheer dress.
A number of celebrities have already walked the red carped with see through – lingerie-esque looks and now we can see these looks also in the cruise collections of brands such as Gucci.
Combine the ‘sheer dress’ trend with the cultural change in women’s lifestyle and approach to the feminine body awareness and the progressive movement towards genderless fashion and the results are see through dresses worn with a naked-look in mind.
The lace dress
The sheer-dress is a close relative of the lace dress, however the cost of production of good quality lace is far more than organza and other materials used for sheer-dress.
The sheer-dress how to where it
The sheer dress is a typical cocktail dress. The cocktail attire is traditionally a formal outfit for evening parties. That’s why we see the sheer dresses worn by celebrities and red carpets events.
The Spring Summer 23 sheer looks
From New York to Milan the Spring summer 23 marks the continuity with the see through.
The real deal, the body and the clothing pieces are exposed for what they are. Bras and knickers become an ensamble to diplay that makes sense only if displayed together with the body as one of the elements of the dress.
Also the hair style is merging with dress, it’s wet as coming off the beach.
