If you’re looking to give up a little hint of skin this summer without being arrested or worrying about tan lines, then get into the trend of sheer fabrics. Sheer fabrics are hot, and not just for those seeking the sexy look. It works with different fabric treatments from chiffons to mesh, and even loose knits. If you’re not quite ready to show off hints of skin, look for items that layer sheer fabrics over solid ones. It’s been done before, but this time around the see-through looks are more fashion forward with pieces like a sheer maxi skirt over a mini skirt or boy shorts. Give it a try, but keep it work appropriate. Your boss doesn’t want to see your bra.
