Discover the best and worst celeb outfits with sheer skirts, and get inspiration on how to rock your own sheer skirt outfit!
If you’ve been checking out my Spring Summer 2017 fashion trends guide, you probably noticed that sheer skirts are one of the top items we saw on the runways for this season. Like all tricky trends, sometimes we have to look up to the celebrities on ideas for doing it right. Or on what to totally avoid! LOL. That’s why we compiled a list of the celebs who wore sheer skirts in 2017 and 2016 to get some style inspiration.
So let’s find out who rocked the sheer skirt outfit (and who flopped), and how you can wear it, too!
Best & Worst Celebrity Sheer Skirt Outfit Ideas
Sheer Co-Ord Set: Bella Hadid
Go for a daring look with a sheer dress or a matching co-ord set. This J Law outfit is totally a runway look. A bit extreme – with a nude tulle maxi skirt and matching sleeveless top worn over a nude bralette. But you can make it less daring by going for a co-ord set with sheer panels at just the bottom or one made with sheer patterned fabric.
Over a Long Shirt or Romper: Jessica Alba
Pair a long lace skirt with a long shirt or a romper tucked in. Go for a bright color or contrasting colors just to add a bit of flirty fun! Accessorize with a sling bag and matching lipstick! Totally pulling off the sheer skirt outfit trend!
Over a Bodysuit: Lucy Hale
Sweater Balancing Act: Jennifer Lawrence
Again, here’s another balancing act. This Dior look pairs a casual loose sweater with a feminine tulle maxi skirt. Fun yet very feminine. That’s how to really rock a sheer skirt outfit!
Cool n’ Casual: Karlie Kloss
Another Dior outfit. This one’s my favorite way of wearing a sheer skirt, and it’s my favorite outfit in this list. Pair a patterned sheer skirt in black with a really casual, yet well-fitted tee. Or a tee bodysuit. And pair it with a yeah-I’m-wearing-a-sheer-skirt-but-so-what attitude! Karlie added a messy wavy hairstyle to match the attitude when she wore this outfit to sit first row at Dior FW17 show!
Outerwear Cover: Kendall Jenner
Kendall Jenner paired her sheer skirt with boy shorts, a matching bandeau top and an overcoat. Too much skin show. It’s like “I can’t decide whether I’m too hot or too cold!” A sexier yet more wearable version would be to pair the sheer skirt over sheer tights, knee-high boots and a crop sweater – like totally winter and less confused!
Badass in the Overskirt: Suki Waterhouse
This bad gal look is all about the balance. Siku wears her fishnet midi skirt with an opaque top panel. And you can even wear your sheer skirt under another mini skirt. And she pairs it with a bralette, but worn under a leather jacket. I’m loving this outfit, and you can even wear a crop top instead of a bralette.
So which of these celebs did you think wore their sheer skirt outfit properly? And which did you think was the worst outfit? And what kinda sheer skirts would you feel most comfy wearing? Comment below! Lemme know!
