Sheer Genius

In case you haven't noticed, sheer clothing is catching on in a major way. To me, this trend was borrowed from the "underwear as outer wear" phase and has morphed into its own unique trend. Lacy sheer undergarments are nothing new, but the great influx of sheer shirts, layers, cutouts, and even pants and shoes are something to notice. The biggest debate? What to wear under.

With so many choices, from demure and feminine to tough and racy, how/will you be rocking sheer this summer?
