Sheer Story: Dresses That Bare Just Enough!

Note from Jenine: This is a guest post from Stylehive, we’ll be doing a weekly post exchange. See our post here.

I popped over to the Karen Millen boutique last week to check out some dresses and fell in love with this Karen Millen ruched silk dress ($299). This fall, it’s about going bare without having to really go bare — find a dress with a sheer top or sleeves to give just a hint of what’s under. For more slightly sheer looks, try Elizabeth and James’ gauze t-shirt dress- it’s a sophisticated spin on a casual classic. Alice + Olivia’s embellished dress is just that, with sheer panels, lace, and rhinestones adding to the mix. Click over to Coquette for more sheer dresses and other fashion and shopping finds.

These are amazing - I love the idea of understated sexy. My favorite is the dress on the right side.

Feminine details, like sheer materials and ruffles are everywhere!
