Sheer Blouses and Ruffles Make Spring Hot

A Fashion Trend Worth Keeping an Eye On

BY // 02.16.17

Houston is on the warmer side again — and it will soon be time to adapt to the spring weather change permanently. It’s about time to switch out the chunky knit sweaters, the wool coats, the overused but comfortable UGGS that we shamefully own but need to throw away, and substitute in light tops, breathable pants and opened-toed shoes.

Sheers and ruffles are dominating the spring runway. With renowned designers such as Valentino and Gucci leading the way, light and airy pleats are the new wave.

See by Chloe’s Smocked Sheer Blouse is the perfect Saturday afternoon top. Wear this with light washed distressed boyfriend jeans, a pair of metallic blushers and a straw clutch bag — and you’re ready for an afternoon picnic. Make it an evening look by switching the jeans out for a white midi skirt with pleats made out of sheer material, nude strappy heels, and a baby pink Saint Laurent mini bag, creating an all over whimsical look.

The perfect date night dress you ask? Try Valentino’s sheer tulle dress. It is the epitome of romance. The deep red and the polka dot sheer material and exposed shoulder are sexy and subtle at the same time. Complete the look with minimal details such as a small clutch and ballerina lace up flats. Give it more of an edge by throwing a leather jacket over your shoulder.

A top from Topshops collaborative brand Boutique is the exact definition of flirty and cool. This sheer top has exaggerated bell-shaped sleeves to bring a sense of “fun” to your outfit. Finish the piece off by wearing black bell bottom denim and flat form sandals to create a sophisticated funky look.
