Another week of fashion shows has passed and it’s becoming more and more apparent that there will be a lot of sheer coming up this coming season. So many brands featured see through effects and sheer fabrics. This can be a difficult trend to pull of for women over 40, but not when it’s done in a subtle and classy way. In this week’s roundup I highlight some of my favorite designers who used sheer elements in their collections.
An absolute highlight of London Fashion week was Dion Lee. I loved all of his designs which were cut to perfection and many dresses were even created using the advanced 3d printing technology. Futuristic and modern, Dion Lee is certainly something to watch over the coming years.
Preen has come onto my radar recently and I loved their collection which featured a lot of sheer elements as well. Lots of beautiful modern clothes here in navy, white and greys with a bit of pink thrown in.
Nicole Farhi’s collection consisted of wonderfully structured clothes in neutral colours. Lots of sheer elements here too, which look so nice with neutral colours. Perfect for all those who prefer a neutral colour palette.
Another collection featuring mainly neutral colours was Daks. I like the simple clean and modern lines from this collection.
Acne’s collection will mostly appeal to a younger generation but I loved some of the layering pieces, like the 2 outfits below.
The sheer trend works best with neutral colours which many of the designers used to great effect. There was still plenty of colour to be seen on the catwalks as well, with Gucci (starting off Milan fashion week) featuring very bright colours for the season. As usual I have pinned all my favorite looks for women over 40 on my spring / summer 2013 trends pinboard.
What do you think of the sheer trend? Would you wear this?
