Sheer takes on a new form this season. Think tulle dresses, lace bodysuits, and mesh tops, all worn layered with autumn and winter essentials. Whether you’re feeling romantic or a little edgy this trend can do so much for your wardrobe this season. And, to make life just a little bit easier for you, we’ve rounded up some of our favourite sheer finds that won’t break the bank.

The Midi-Skirt

Nothing screams romance like a sheer, lace midi-skirt. To keep it super feminine accessorise with pearls or gemstones. As for shoes,  pair your midi-skirt with strappy heels to give you an easy boost and to elongate your total look. Choose a neutral pair to lend your outfit a subtle lift without taking away from the pattern on your skirt.

The Bodysuit

Forget swimsuits, there’s a new one-piece trend taking the fashion world by storm right now. Ladies, meet the bodysuit. Gone are the days when these beautiful pieces were made to be worn under your clothes, this season, these sexy lace-up numbers are dying to see the light of day. Styling the bodysuit is easy – pair it with a simple breezy skirt and you’re good to go!

We love this MRP lace Detail Bodysuit, MRP – R119.99 | Mesh Inset Bodysuit, MRO – R89.99

We love this MRP lace Detail Bodysuit and  MRP Mesh Inset Bodysuit – these demure bodysuits are a great way to try out this trend without feeling like you’ve stepped out in your underwear.

The Lace Dress

Sheer dresses are all the rage at the moment but if you’re not ready to bare it all under a mesh number fear not! With a few small styling tweaks, you can definitely rock a sheer dress. If you want to rock the full mesh trend then simply choose a flowy mesh style and err on the side of caution by wearing a silk slipdress underneath. Not so brave? Choose a dress with sheer details with a slip sewn into the design.

Transparent mesh dress, H&M – R799 | Lace Fit and Flare Dress, MRP – R169.99.

We love this H&M Transparent mesh dress and MRP Lace Fit & Flare Dress – the unlined H&M version can be worn with a slip dress underneath for a real wow statement while the MRP version is a great way to rock the sheer trend without showing too much skin.

The Mesh Top

Whether you’re ready to rock a mesh top with nothing but lingerie underneath or want a more demure version, everyone can enjoy this edgy trend! Wear your see-through mesh top with retro lingerie, as a way to spice up your look or make crop tops more forgiving by layering them under something sheer and longer length. A little sheer mesh or lace is great if you want to indulge in the crop-top trend, but don’t feel like going for the full-on belly bare.

Lace top
