3 Ways To Do A Sheer Hem
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.
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!
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!
