Sheer continues to be a trend for fall, and from full-on see-through to subtle cutout panels, there are a few things to keep in mind when trying this look.

Sheer blouses require fashion bras or creative underpinnings. Go for a simple triangle bra if you're small chested, or opt for something like a bandeau or cami if you possess a more ample bust. For daytime, shelve the lacy, racy lingerie.

Try styling your blouse buttoned all the way to balance out the risqué factor. Or, add a tailored jacket or sleek cover-up to up the sophistication. Consider more modestly cut bottoms—stay away from short shorts and miniskirts. Leather track pants, high- waisted skinnies, boyfriend jeans, and structured maxis are all great options.


Shop designer blouses.
