3 Ways To Do A Sheer Hem

Sheer fabrics have slowly been gaining momentum and are everywhere at the moment! The possibilities of wearing them are endless, but I have found myself particularly drawn to all the sheer-hemmed skirts that have managed to translate into summer staples after being one of last winter's hot items. Again, there are so many ways to do a sheer hem, so I thought I would give you guys a round up of inspirational pics for my three favourite ways to rock a sheer hemmed skirt!

1. A little peek-a-boo
More of a layering style than an actual sheer hem, this is a great way to ease into the trend. It doesn't have to look very daring, and just requires a little layer of something sheer - lace looks great - peeking out from under your skirt.
2. As a hem extension
The most popular type of sheer-hemmed skirt seems to be as a simple extension of the skirt: take a plain skirt and play with the length, without having to make it too conservative, by adding sheer panels. Very simple, and still an instant style statement!
3. Sheer overlay
My favourite take on this look, and also the most creative! You could start simple, with a plain layer over a neutral shade. Or go for a bright colour over a neutral skirt. Whilst your at it, how about a printed layer over a plain skirt? Or an embellished layer? Or flip it around and wear a neutral sheer layer over a print skirt! I genuinely don't know which one to choose, they all look amazing and are a great way to create a subtle style statement!

I love checking out your blogs as well, so if you leave a comment I will come visit your blog sometime soon :)
However, I firmly believe that you should follow a blog because you feel inspired, not as part of a follow-for-follow deal. I will NEVER respond to "want to follow each other" requests.
I look forward to hearing your thoughts!
