Trend Watch Wednesday: {Sheer Bliss}

Button Down Top from Planet Blue
Sheer shirts are tricky business. If worn correctly, they can be beautiful, romantic and effortlessly sexy. If worn incorrectly, well, they can look downright tramp-tastic.

I, Leslie, am quite the sheer shirt fan.

I love every last sheer lovely in my closet and covet new ones every time I peruse the web.

Sheer shirts are my fashion crack.

Planet Blue* has some to-die-for sheer tops that make me swoon and gaze dreamily at my laptop. Every blouse is unique and romantic with a vintage flair about her and frankly, I can’t get enough.

Button Down Top

There are many ways to dress sheer duds up or down, depending on where you’re going or the time of day. Take note:

1) Dress a sheer top down by pairing it with tattered denim shorts. It gives a hippy-ish edge to an outfit without looking dated.

2) Try pairing a tucked-in, sheer top with jeans and heels for an office appropriate nod to current style.

3) Accessorize with bulky pieces for a balanced outfit. Sheer is, well, sheer. It’s light and airy. Therefore, you can accessorize heavily with chunky necklaces, door knocker earrings and bubbly, bobbly rings.

Have you taken the plunge into sheer this summer? What do you rock your sheer blouses with? Skinny jeans, maxi skirts, daisy dukes??

*Planet Blue did not pay me or ask me to post the above. It all boils down to the simple fact that I lurve them and think they are awesomesauce. Consider yourself fully disclosed.

Be blessed, lovelies-


  1. I love option 2! I have started wearing this combination to work on a weekly basis. It's so comfortable and uper cute! :)

  2. I love sheer shirts. I see them all the time. I just can't decide truly if they're office appropriate. I mean, I wouldn't ever wear a tank top to work (I'm a teacher), so I don't know how different wearing a sheer shirt over a tank top is. Thoughts? I want to buy a couple, but I'm just nervous about it.

  3. I love the idea of a black bra under a sheer top!

  5. I love the sheer shirt look - I agree with you, wearing them with tattered shorts is a great look.

    Ashley from the Bachelorette has been wearing them a lot and they always looks great!

  6. I just bought some shorts like these from H&M and LOVEEEE them! I will try and be cool ...
