How She’d Wear It with Style and Cheek

HSWI February 2014

Last week we explored sheer button down blouses and this week we’re going for a much more casual vibe with sheer tops. I’ve always admired girls who can pull off casual sheer tops with their colorful bras exposed. Think classy Coachella – it’s a California rock-chick look but without looking too grungy. Perfect for when the days start getting warmer and you’re gonna be outside at night, maybe with a drink in hand. The thing with sheer tops is that they force you to not be self-conscious. You’ve already committed to being a little flirty, maybe even showing off some skin, so what else is there to worry about? You put on one of these outfits and you’re guaranteed a care-free night of fun and good times.

When you wear a shirt like this people are going to remember you for it. Even if you didn’t talk to them you’ll be remembered as “that chick in the bull shirt.” Match this sheer shirt with some super feminine accessories and comfy, but well fitted jeans and you’ve got a look that will always stand out. What brings the look together is the beautiful floral print jacket that keeps the look from becoming too casual without making it look stuck up. Blue floral print jackets? More please.

As we’ve talked about in the past on HSWI, leather is a great confidence booster, it makes you feel tough and strong and protected. Leather jackets are armor. Then on the whole other side of the fabric spectrum, you have sheer. Its barely there femininity will always ooze sexy. Combo leather and sheer and throw in an eye-catching magenta bandeau, and people are going to get out of your way just so they can take you in. There is nothing better than feeling (and looking) badass and sexy at the same time. In short, this is a power outfit.
