Kelly Eng, a senior psychology major studying at Syracuse’s London Study Abroad program, is seen here wearing a sheer blouse paired with navy capris and brown moccasins. Eng has been wearing sheer shirts for awhile but said she got even more into them once she noticed how popular they were here in London.
Sheer blouses have been popular for the past couple of years, but like Kelly, I have noticed that this season has seen an influx of them. Stores in Europe, such as Marks & Spencer, H&M, and Topshop, have been carrying large amounts of these types of stylish shirts. And who can blame them? Sheer blouses are a great staple to have in anyone’s spring or summer wardrobe. With the warmer months approaching, comfort and style are essential for all us fashionistas out there.
The great thing about sheer shirts is that they are lightweight, repel sweat, and come in a variety of different colors as well as patterns. Plus, they are versatile and can be worn with either jeans, trousers, skirts or leggings. Don’t feel comfortable wearing a sheer shirt alone? Try wearing a cute lacy camisole underneath or, if you’re feeling adventurous, add some spunk with a funky bandeau top. Sheer shirts can also be used as a cover up for the beach over a cute bikini. Whatever you decide to wear your sheer shirt or blouses with, just know that you will be able to mix and match with ease.
