When you combine a mini and a maxi skirt together, you produce a trendy result that’s here to stay: the sheer skirt. Seen by actresses like Blake Lively and Ginnifer Goodwin, the sheer skirt is the perfect way to channel both your flirty and glam side without revealing a lot. Here are a few tips that can be your antidote to achieving the best of both worlds.
1. OVER THE TOP
To achieve an ‘over the top’ look, wear a top over a sheer skirt! Choose a contrasting long top/sweater and make sure it covers at least half of your butt. It’s a great way to cover your assets and make a new fashion statement.
Blogger Tuula and model, Aubrey Lee Kershaw, looked radiantly bold with their sweater and blazer exposed over the skirt.
2. UNDERNEATH IT ALL
You can also choose to wear the sheer skirt over what you’re currently wearing. Simply wear a sheer skirt over a dress or a bodysuit to showcase a fun, versatile outfit. It’s a simple yet stylish way of showing both outfits all at once!
Chictopian NeonNothing and this model from Style Icon Kryz’s online shop, Coexist, look leggy and striking with those vivid colours/prints peering through the sheerness.
3. DOUBLE SKIRTED
A popular and classic way of showcasing the sheer skirt look is by wearing a mini skirt with the same colour family as the sheer skirt underneath. The mini skirt beneath acts as a way of covering the right amount without compromising that fun, sexy side of you.
Our very own Everybody is Ugly’s Editor, PurpleWang, and Chictopian Nadiaaboulhosn nailed the look by wearing their minis under their sheer maxis. (Of course, shirt is optional and you can just pair this skirt with just a bra!)
4. SOME SHOW LEG
If none of the previous options entice you, why not layer your outfit with a pair of leggings underneath that sheer skirt? Not only will you be able to show the silhouette of your legs, you’ll still look daring and fresh. Show some modest spunk by contrasting the hosiery with a different colour or texture skirt!
