How To Style a Sheer Top

how to style sheer

 So, I'm back with an outfit post, o.m.g - the nerves. As much as I love blogging about fashion, it fucking scares me every time I see myself on the internet. As well as that, I always feel ever so awkward going through the pictures and pick out so many flaws about myself. There's not many pictures that I keep - no matter how many are taken. It has taken me a while to learn how to love my body and the lumps and bumps that are a part of me.

I also apologise for being so MIA for the past month on my blog and social media. My nan was taken into hospital back in February and she's been really unwell since, so I've been doing endless trips back and forth up there. On a good note, I very recently achieved one of my goals that I wanted to smash this year and that was to get another job. I only found out two days ago that I got this job and I am still over the moon. You can read my other goals for 2018, here. Now that little life update is over with, let's chat about everythaang you need to know about styling sheer.

how to dress up sheer

Sheer has been ever so popular in the fashion world since last year and I personally, never thought I would be able to rock it. But, you can style it SO many ways. I usually wear sheer on a night out or if I'm going for drinks etc. I personally don't have the confidence to wear sheer out and about during the day. 

It's what's underneath that matters. I find that lacy pieces are much more flattering than just a plain black crop top/tube top or a bra/bralette. I always style my jeans and sheer top with this lace detailed crop top or if I'm feeling really confident and sassy (ha!), or depending on where I'm going, I wear a black laced bra under my sheer top instead.
The only time I won't wear a crop top underneath, is when I wear a high waisted skirt - just because I feel like there's too much going on. So, I just stick to my lacy black bra instead. 

With sheer, you can wear any sort of shoes. If you want to dress it down, stick on some cute trainers, plimsolls or ankle boots. If you want to dress it up, heels work best. Although, these knee high boots look lush paired with the skirt.
You don't have to wear jewellery but I feel like it just completes the whole look. It can even be minimal. I always like to wear my ol' faithful hoops or my dangly earrings for when I'm going out because you can see them, whereas studs, you can't. A statement necklace would also go perfectly with a sheer top. Blazers and jackets look gorgeous with this outfit and can change the whole look. It can also 'cover you up a bit' if you're feeling a little unconfident. Let me know what you think of these outfits.
