When it comes to closet conundrums, the sheer top might be one of the toughest sartorial puzzles to crack. Reveal too little and you lose the effect, reveal too much and you’re suddenly cited for indecent exposure. The obvious solution--pairing a diaphanous top with a neutral camisole--feels like an amateur fix, so I came up with two additional ideas for styling this must-have piece. Whether you want to impress at the office or create an alluring party look, click through for inspiration to craft your own sheerly brilliant ensemble.
The straw mini bag adds tactile interest to my outfit and feels spot-on for the warm weather. As for my jewelry, I swapped out my usual delicate rings for a chunky quartz cocktail bauble, which makes more of a statement for a party.
Since I keep my clothes conservative at the office, I like to add edge with my accessories. Wearing rings on multiple fingers is my favorite tough-girl trick. Mix it up with an assortment of dainty and chunky versions.
