Sheer Fun

I’ve never really cared for midi skirts. I find them really difficult to wear without looking dowdy.

But when I saw this assymetrically-hemmed silk version with sheer panels by Elie Tahari, I was smitten. It was one of those purchases that you make not having a clue how it will integrate into your closet, but falling so deeply in love with it that you know it. must. be. yours.

Turns out (as it usually does with purchases of that nature), that I wear it all the time with everything.

The sheer navy polka dot top is pretty voluminous, so instead of tucking it, I wrapped the front panels around to the back and pinned it with a brooch I bought at a friend’s closet sale.

If the Spring runways were any indication, we’ll be seeing a lot of sheer in a couple of months. It can be tricky to pull off and still retain your membership in the PTA, but we’ll be talking about just how to do that (and wear other Spring ’16 trends) in next month’s Love Your Style workshop. I hope you’ll join us!
