.nyfw2012 trend alert: sheer.

New York fashion week is undoubtedly the end all, be all in the fashion world. I absolutely adored absorbing the coverage everyday. Backstage frenzy – from hair and makeup to accessories to nearly-naked models tottering around in heels while scrambling into the next garment – seriously, I can’t get enough.

This blog focuses on one particular trend: sheer. While each of the designs below are strikingly different, they each combine a sheer material with an unexpected textile to create an original design.

What’s your favorite way to add sheer into your everyday wardrobe? Leave your comments below and stay tuned for more of my NYFW2012 favorite trends!

The LA Times referred to BCBG Max Azria’s collection as “bondage boudoir.” Um, yes please. I’m a sucker for hard + soft combos, and though not a leather fan I simply swooned over these looks. The black lace remains edgy while keeping the sparkly sheer counterpart from leaning too feminine.

Rebecca Minkoff kept her sheer looks combined with pops of bold color and a big dose of crisp white. I would kill for a pair of the grey shorts to the left! The suited up, business casual vibe comes off in the high-collared tops and muted prints, which keeps the sheer from being to sexy for everyday wear.

I saved the best for last! Marchesa can do no wrong. The undisputable formal wear queen Georgina Chapman seamlessly mixes old Hollywood glamour, modern sex kitten and chic aristocrat styles into a flawless execution. Everytime. The unique and inspiring looks above prove Marchesa’s ability to show something innovative with every collection.

  1. As a male, I’d say my preferred way to add sheer to my every day outfits is color. Something that’s bright and offset from the rest of what I’m wearing.
