Sheer’s Genius: 16 Ways to Highlight Your Assets

Showing off your best features has never been so easy. With many spring runway collections offering a study in transparency — sheer chiffon, organza, and mesh fabrics were endlessly worked into nearly every facet of design — these see-through pieces are now enjoying their retail spotlight. In various shapes, precisely placed peekaboos on the bodice of dresses and sheer overlays on skirts seemed the most omnipresent. Taking cues from Stella McCartney, Giambattista Valli, and Helmut Lang, transparent-paneled clothing offers both a sporty and feminine allure that is undeniably, tastefully sexy. To show off toned abs, one may gravitate toward Zara's dress with black see-through side panels, whereas fit shoulders would be flattered by T by Alexander Wang's swimsuit with sheer insets. And to sweeten the deal when the weather gets better, these pieces also allow for breezy wearability fit for balmy summer nights. Click ahead to see sixteen sheer ways to show us what you got.
