Sheer Exposure

      I absolutely love sheer blouses. From the minute I found the perfect one at Forever 21, I've been in love! I'm not sure what I love more, the feel of the fabric, or the look of the shirt! Sheer blouses are sort of risky, but they're so fashionable!
     Though there's tons of ways to wear them, I always go for the simples that work best. I think it's a great idea to wear a tank top beneath your shirt, so you don't show way too much. Also, the contrast of the shirt and the tank looks amazing! (especially a white tank with a cream sheer blouse). I also really love the idea of a plain white sheer blouse and a striped tank top underneath it. That soft hint of stripes just leaves me speechless, because I love how subtle it is but how well it all comes together! So, here are a few other ways I'd wear a sheer blouse.

Sheer Exposure


Plain: I really love this plain white blouse! I think it's a step above just a regular ole' white shirt, and I just like it alot! For this shirt, I got the idea of pairing it with a black & white stripe tank top. I think that the shirt and the tank top would look amazing together, especially when you can see the subtle hints of the stripes under it! For some texture and a little fun, I added a beautiful mermaid-esque sequin skirt, a gorgeous pair of dark riding bots, and a light brown bag (I know i've used it before but.......I just love it so much!)

Pattern: I think patterned blouses are so cool! I really like this leopard print one, and I paired it with just a simple gray long-sleeved top. I think taking away from the shirt would be unfair, so I like the idea of letting it be the main attraction of the outfit. To add onto the pattern madness, I chose this really cute bodycon flower print skirt, and I like the pattern a lot. I also like the idea of wearing a skinny belt over the shirt. For shoes, I like these heeled oxfords a lot, and just a simple clutch to complete the look.

Color: How pretty is this yellow sheer blouse? It just reminds me so much of the sun, summer, and just having fun! I paired it with a plain white tank top, a gorgeous red maxi skirt, and beautiful riding boots. A simple set of pearls and an adorable subtle handbag complete the look. I love the simplicity of the whole look overall, and I know that the blouse would still be the vocal point of the outfit! It's looking chic and stylish, without going overboard.
