To trend or not to trend? The key to incorporating a new trend into your wardrobe is to find one that you like and make it part of your style (without being the talk of your office or friends). So Career Girls, you heard it here first! Sheer, transparent, PVC, translucent, lucite…whatever you want to call it – it is the trend now! Here are three ways to wear it:
1) Summer Wedding:
a) The sheer panel dress is perfect for a hot outdoor Summer wedding. This is on the more daring side with the plunging neckline but combined with the pale yellow and the lace, there is a sweetness about this dress that will have heads turning. If you have the body for it I say go for it!
b) The lucite clutch – I recently found one on Etsy that looks almost identical to this one pictured (and it has a detachable strap). I needed something that would match with different colored outfits and this was more than perfect (and budget friendly). You can view my different looks with the clutch on my blog (search lucite).
2) Weekend Ready:
The sheer panel top is great for those Summer days. And for those who just are not sure if they like the sheer trend or not. It is subtle so I paired it with a bold printed pant. Great for a casual Friday at the office or a weekend lunch.
3) Work Week: Sheer at work?
a) A sheer panel on a simple pencil skirt is a great accent piece and also subtle enough that you could wear it to the office. I paired it with a simple blouse but it would also work with a blazer or cardigan.
b) The transparent pump is one of my favorites and I am considering purchasing a pair. I am also seeing a lot of sandals with the clear lucite heels. They conjure up memories of Cinderella and her glass slipper.
