Sheer Genius

All this interior design madness has certainly been fun, but it's time to get back to my roots- after all, it's fashion week people. Anyways, I've been trying to bring myself up-to-speed on the Spring 2011 ready-to-wear shows, and feel it is my responsibility to share with you all some of the new, and not-so-new trends we can anticipate wearing, or at least admiring, come springtime. I've spent the last hour and a half watching runway slide shows and pretending that the laundry will wash itself, so I'll have to break this down to you lovely ladies in a couple of installments.

First up: Sheers. This seemed to be one of the most dominant trends across the board. While it may require specific undergarments, or lack thereof, I still love the femininity and softness it can bring to even a more structured look. There were all sorts of variations:

Stunning Metallic Sheers at Elie Tahari

And it came in candy colors at Sophie Theallet

Sheer perfection at Monique Lhuillier
Graphic Sheers were layered at Chris Benz

Vera Wang paired sheers with showcase-worthy bras for her modern geishas

 Sheer shoulders at Lela Rose (this collection is flawless)

 Rebecca Taylor channels a softer 70's and pairs sheer skirts with leotards

 Dennis Basso does 50's redux with a splash of sheer

Preen showed sheer blouses for the very brave and perky-breasted

and Narcisco Rodriguez's lingerie-inspired collection featured plenty of sheers.

Want to see how you might be able to incorporate some sheers into your wardrobe this fall and spring? Well, I guess you better stay tuned ;)
