From crop tops to cutout dresses, this summer is all about flashing just the right amount of skin. One of our favorite trends at the forefront of this less-is-more style is sheer fabrics—from chiffon and silk to delicate, hosiery-inspired knits and everything in between, we’re loving the translucent silhouette.

The allure of this trend hinges on its versatility. If gauzy lace slips irk you and the idea of fishnet anything unnerves you, you’re not alone. But the sheers gracing the racks this season are much more than the beach cover-ups of yesterday. They range from tailored dresses and boxy tops to muslin shifts and wilted tulle skirts.

For a classic, feminine look, pair a sheer, punchy-colored blouse with a textured mini. The thickness of the skirt complements and balances the airiness of the top.

For a bolder look, layer like-colored sheers to varying levels of opacity, giving the look movement and shape. Be sure to pair with strappy heels to really up the ante.

Whether your style is soft and graceful or fierce and edgy, these summer sheers guarantee all eyes will be on you.
