The sheer trend is really nothing new. If you've been paying any attention at all to celebrity style, you'd know that variations of the "naked" trend have popped up plenty of times over the years, from going pants-less to "floss" fashion. And 2022 is merely leaving its own mark on the look. Just this month, Emily Ratajkowski, Olivia Wilde, and Hannah Bronfman all stepped out in what we're deeming to be the latest iteration of wearing next to nothing. They all opted for shimmery and sheer mesh dresses that sparkle in the light. 

But this isn't just another daring celebrity trend designed to get us talking. No, the spring 2023 runways overwhelmingly back the look, which tells us that this is only just the beginning of the trend. At Miu Miu, Fe Noel, and 16Arlington, mesh pieces glimmered with crystal and rhinestone embellishments clearly meant for your after-hours wardrobe. 

Ahead, see how celebs are wearing this new 2022 naked trend and the runway references, and then shop our favorite sheer shimmery pieces.
