Sheer fabrics have been a trend in recent seasons, and for Holiday 2010 sheer looks abound as well. Sheer can be done in a very demure way, completely avoiding tight see-through fashions. You’ll see the lovely effects of multiple sheer layers, as well as feminine draping, which keeps sheer fashions from crossing the line into salacious.
Blacks and whites predominate for the Holiday 2010 sheer look, with “swing” silhouette tops by Thayer and Dallin Chase adding a lot of fun to holiday outfits. The Thayer piece features large, strategically placed white rosettes made from sheer fabric on a be-ribboned halter top. Alice+Olivia features a sheer mesh under layer peeking out from a black strapless dress with a sweetheart neckline and full skirt.
Even accessories for Holiday 2010 are incorporating sheer touches, such as headbands sporting sheer flowers and cuff bracelets with sheer panels. Other sheer accessory ideas to incorporate for Holiday 2010 include sheer pumps, sheer scarves, and evening looks with sheer cutout mesh panels.
For more casual holiday looks, shirts and blouses with sheer sleeves, or fitted tops with sheer overlays allow even the less daring to take advantage of this ethereal, feminine look. Besides black and white, look for sheer items in champagne, nude, and red.
