Sheer Long Sleeves- The Luxurious New Trend To Wear Now


While summertime may immediately bring the idea of bare shoulders and ladylike strapless neckline to mind, sheer long sleeves are officially in style for Summer 2016. In order to showcase your toned biceps and hard work at the gym, try channelling the runways with flowing, transparent sleeves. Here’s how to draw your sartorial inspiration from the season’s runways and rock this subtly sexy trend now.

Casual Chic

For the warmer days ahead, capture a vintage inspired casual look with a truly modern look, as spotted at Zimmerman. Step out in a playful blue and white striped romper, adorned with slightly puffed and sheer long sleeves. Meanwhile, lace accents, a frilly bodice and high-cut shorts help to complete the look of a chic playsuit. Wrap up your weekend style with a lacy power blue collar necklace and a pair of matching strappy sandals.

Work Wear

If your office is highly air conditioned during the summer, take your style cues from the Dries Van Noten runway. Slip into a fitted blouse with abstract printed long sleeves and a contrasting bodice. For a finishing touch, the perfect pair of loose brocade trousers in a vampy violet hue will help you inject summertime spirit into your ensemble.


As the sun sets, try capturing the romantic spirit of summer with sheer sleeves and lavender lace (as seen at Rodarte). Hit the party circuit in a light purple pleated frock with a V-neckline, embellished detail and tulle hemline. Accessorize your outfit with shoulder-dusting silver earrings, a metallic hair ornament and golden strappy heels. Prepare to illuminate every dance floor in sight with your shimmering, luminous and subtly transparent style!
