Sheer layers are one of those looks that pop up every time the weather turns warm – but they’re a tricky trend to get right. So, when Target asked me to share my favorite picks – and a few foolproof styling tips – I knew I had to step up to the plate. They may be a challenge, but with the right styling (and a few foolproof underpinnings), you’ll be set for the season!

My favorite way to wear sheer is on a bold print blouse. A pattern or color palette that could be way too much in an opaque style is perfectly toned down in a sheer fabric, making it more wearable without taking away any of the fun! So go big with a bright pick, then pair with a sleek pair of blasted-out skinnies and a great bootie or classic stiletto, and add a chunky watch to keep things on the casual side.

Lace is another easy way to try out sheer styles. I love to throw a lace shell on underneath a blazer for work – it keeps things covered up, but still gets you the sheer effect you’re after. For the weekend, go full-blown gamine and pair the same shell with a pair of slim ankle-length trousers, ballet flats and a simple shoulder bag.

If you’re going for work-appropriate, or just don’t love the look of a bra peeking out from behind that lace, add a cami to keep things PG. Look for something with a thin strap and a low scoop, to keep the look feminine instead of matronly.

Happy hunting!
