The sheer skirts trend has been seen both on Spring and Fall 2017 runways. Here are the types of sheer skirts we saw and what we think of them!
Sheer Skirts on the Spring Summer 2017 Runways
Maria Grazia Chiuri at Dior came up with many types of long sheer skirts – white ruffled midis, tiered minis, tulle maxi skirts and embroidered ones. We also saw sheer co-ord sets in white, black, red and nude. They were paired with leather jackets, bodysuits, sheer tops or even tees.
The sheer organza skirt in navy at worn over a printed bodysuit was one of my favorite looks from Fendi SS17 collection. Chanel had a sheer mini skirt with a matching lining that made it super wearable. Dolce & Gabbana had a black sheer long skirt worn with a matching peplum. Versace had an asymmetric sheer panel midi skirt and Cavalli had sheer lace maxi skirt worn with a bralette.
Sheer Skirts for Fall Winter 2017-18
The FW17 ready-to-wear runway collections had plenty of sheer skirts, so if you’re looking to invest in one, they’ll still be in trend next season and you won’t be disappointed! We saw all black sheer skirts again. Christopher Kane had a slashed black midi skirt, and Moschino showed a plain tulle maxi skirt worn with a sweatshirt. Super cool! Both Versace and Dolce & Gabbana had sheer midi skirts worn with jackets. Also, in FW17 fashion weeks, we saw less transparent versions, which were more wearble, I guess.
What Do We Think of the Sheer Skirts Trend?
Interesting, and also experimental. I wouldn’t be daring enough to go for something too transparent. Although I’d love to try a long sheer skirt with a jacket, plain top or perhaps a tee for a really casual look. Sheer panels and sheer patterns are something I definitely would love to try. A bit of peek-a-boo but not too much!
