Ebay Spring Trend - Sheer cover

Show some skin! Sheer fabrics are another big trend this spring and were seen on many runways including (from left to right) Chanel, Jil Sander, Derek Lam and Fendi.

While it may seem like an intimidating look to adopt for some, the sheer trend is all about being subtly seductive but still keeping it classy. Choose an item that will hint at your best features such as a blouse with sheer sleeves to bring the focus to your arms or a skirt with a sheer hem to show off your great legs. Be careful not to reveal too much or your outfit may leave you looking like less of a fashionista and more like a lady of the night.

You can use sheer fabrics as a cover up over another garment, for example, wear a sheer patterned dress or skirt over a plain one for delicate but alluring look.

Tap into this trend with the items I found below.
