Summer is here! With longer days and warmer weather, many of us are looking for ways to stay cool. Light, breathable fabrics are a necessity in the heat. Thankfully, sheer fabrics are popping up all over the place and we love it! From chiffon tops to flowing maxi skirts, the dare to be bare is in full swing. Here at Kendra Scott, we know that the perfect accessories can make an outfit. A fun and breathable summer look can be achieved with a colorful bandeau or camisole, a sheer blouse, and of course colorful Kendra Scott jewelry to top it off.
Designers like Chloé and Lanvin featured sheer elements in their spring/summer 2012 collections and again in their fall collections, meaning the look is here to stay! Celebrities are also going sheer - Blake Lively looked lovely and classy in a sheer blouse at a charity event for Oxfam and Miranda Kerr was seen strolling the streets of NYC in a sheer blouse by Equipment.
Skirts and dresses with sheer elements are a great way to stay trendy and cool this summer, whether on the red carpet or at a casual backyard barbecue. At the 2012 Met Gala, Beyoncé took the trend to the extreme in a sexy black Givenchy gown while designer Tory Burch donned a classic gown from her own collection. Whether you choose a high-low hemline or a floor-length maxi, sheer fabrics give your dress or skirt a fashionable edge. Mix it up with a vibrant hues, textures and patterns for a truly unique look.
