Sheer see-through fabrics hit fashion runways a long time ago. The trend returned a few years ago and it’s here to stay.

Transparent maxi skirts and dresses look edgy, sexy and elegant, but are better reserved for night wear. Unless of course you’re Rihanna, then you can wear them to a kid’s birthday party!

Lace and mesh will keep you cool during the summer heat while remaining swanky. It’s perfect for a girls’ night out, a festival or even a block party. Just don’t forget to wear a nice pair of retro-inspired knickers.

I wore an ASTR polka dot skirt paired with an American Apparel leotard, vintage belt (similar here by Versace) and DSQUARED2 heels (here’s a great pair by Saint Lauren or Alexander McQueen).
