Once seen as the epitome of bad taste, sheer fabrics and risqué dresses have, in recent years, become a key component of some of the world's chicest wardrobes. Yes, really.
When done right, 'nearly-naked' looks strike that hard-to-reach sweet spot between being sartorially sensual and super chic without even a hint of awkwardness or discomfort for either the wearer or the observer.
But how to jump on the sheer dress trend without missing the mark?
As is often the case with such trends we're looking toward our favourite celebrities for inspiration - many of whom worked the sheer dress trend at last year's Met Gala in New York, and with the next instalment just a week away we'd be lying if we said we weren't eagerly anticipating more…
It's back on the springtime calendar, and we can't wait.
From Kendall Jenner to Irina Shayk, sheer dresses were a popular choice on the iconic red carpet, with Kendall channelling Audrey Hepburn in a breathtaking crystal Givenchy gown while Irina wore a sheer Moschino dress, cementing a strong comeback for the trend.
In fact, we're so sold that we're looking for any excuse to throw one on ourselves... not that we have any Met Gala level events in our social calendar. Sigh
And don't think for a minute that the concept of a sheer dress should've been left behind in your teens, as the likes of Priyanka Chopra, Ashley Graham and even the Duchess of Cambridge have proven, they can be flattering, sophisticated and hugely sexy whatever the occasion.
Of course, practically every red carpet has played host to a sheer dress over the years, thanks in large part to the sartorially savvy fans such as Kendall Jenner, Hailey Bieber, Zendaya and Chrissy Teigen, while Naomi Campbell and Gigi Hadid have taken to many a Fashion Week runway to prove the power of sheer fabrics.
Unexpectedly, however, Elsa Hosk proved her influence recently by wearing a sheer mini on her sofa at home during lockdown. If you're looking for a WFH wardrobe upgrade, consider this your sign.
