The bold but classy look of this chic and romantic trend just screams femme-fatal to me. Not only do sheer blouses look like statement pieces, but they can also be styled in various different ways thanks to their versatility. The fact that sheer material looks super expensive -be it chiffon, organza or tulle is just icing on top. Here’s a quick guide to help you style sheer blouses in multiple ways for any occasion!
Tip: For starter level, go with minimalistic clothing pieces (that are heavily in trend right now) or neutral one’s as they are particularly easier to style.
What to wear under a sheer blouse
• Crop top
The transparency of sheer adds a sophisticated touch to an otherwise casual look of a crop top.
• Bralette or bra top
Sheer blouses tones down the sensual look of a bralette while you can still show it off.
• Tanktop or Tube top
The perfect solution to dressing without anxiety if you ask me.
• Bodysuit or bathing suit
Evidently, a very clever way to utilize the bathing suits. Bathing suits and bodysuits underneath sheer blouse will make the sheer blouse appear chicer thanks to the snug fit.
Tip: While picking what to wear underneath the blouse, your safest option would be to go with the same colour as the blouse. However, if you up for standing out, go with a contrast colour or even neon.

• Blazer or suits
Blazers and suits are the most versatile pieces so they can be easily styled with sheer. You can go for a linen blazer or suit since it’s summer. In addition to being more covered up, blazer also eliminates the inner piece problem if you button up.
• Formal bottoms
In order to turn a romantic sheer blouse into boardroom worthy piece, pair it with straight-leg pants or a sleek pencil skirt. I will particularly recommend high-waist bottoms to avoid showing skin.
• covering inner piece
Bralettes or bra tops are not exactly office appropriate but the other inner piece suggestions mentioned above would absolutely work here.
• Mesh or printed sheer blouses
They also work great if you are not ready for complete transparency. However, if your work environment is strict, consider wearing a covering inner piece like crop or tank tops under the blouse.
Semi-sheer blouses are not just easiest to style but also quite modest if you’d rather be subtle -showing skin only on areas like shoulders or sleeves.
