Shiny Sheer and a Pop of Blue

Classy with a Kick: J Crew Linen Sweater Lulus Lace Shorts Louis Vuitton
J. Crew Sweater (old) // Lululemon Tank (old but the new colors are fun) // Lulus Lace Shorts // Tory Burch Wedges // 

So it's not summer weather yet but it's starting to be the perfect time for sweater and shorts - my favorite! On days where the weather is warm but not warm enough - I love wearing sheer or lightweight sweaters. Last year I got this sheer shimmery linen sweater from J. Crew. I have a love/hate relationship with this sweater because it snags so easily. But the color is perfect...it has gold, copper and silver metallic threads so you can wear it with anything. I learned that with a little extra TLC, our relationship can work out!

Sometimes I am a little leery about wearing sheer shirts to work fearing they expose too much. But I think if it's tasteful and you wear something fun underneath - colors, patterns, etc - things that cover and play on the sheerness, it can totally work.

Like last time, I wore a bright blue tank underneath for a hint of color and my cream lace shorts from Lulus. If you are looking for a pair of loose fitting comfy lace shorts...definitely get these! They are super cute on and they feel like you are wearing sweats. Love them!

How do you feel about sheer tops? Do you wear them to work or outside of work? What do you like to layer under them?

  1. I have a co-worker that wears sheer tops in the summer with NOTHING but a bra underneath! So I think you're fine with wearing the tank with yours :)

  2. I'm not a fan of the bra under the sheer top. I just wear a tank. I have a couple of shirts that snag easily and every single time I wear them, they get caught on something. Ugh!!!

  3. I've tried to do the sheer black lacy top with a black bra underneath before and I feel too exposed too. I like the idea of putting something patterned underneath instead of a solid color though! Good thinking!
