The sheer trend isn’t new. It’s been around for years, but as we’re in the midst of one of the hottest summers in years, sheer pieces are in the spotlight now more than ever. From minor detailing to more daring looks with fully sheer tops and dresses, take a look at some of the ways our favorite fashion girls are styling sheer pieces to create modern, trendy looks.

A lacy, sheer top juxtaposed with denim creates the perfect pairing.
Grasie Mercedes, Style Me Grasie
Two trends in one, Grasie wows with a sheer floral applique top paired with denim and sneakers.
Brittany Xavier, Thrifts and Threads
Do date night right with a romantic, sheer blouse like Brittany’s.
Taylor Gardner, Dallas Style Blog
I never knew how to style all the sheer dresses I’ve found and fallen in love with. Thanks to blogger and street style inspiration, I am living for a sheer dress styled over denim jeans or, more daringly, high-waist briefs.
Viktoria Dahlberg, @victoria.dahlberg
For a dramatic nighttime look, try wearing a bodysuit or high-waist briefs under a sheer, lacy dress.
Ellena Galant, Galant Girl
These sheer culottes may just be the pants of my dreams!
Geri Hirsch, Because I’m Addicted
Geri managed to find the perfect sheer skirt to remix all throughout summer. It can also be taken into the cooler months by pairing it with a sweater and boots, as she shows in this outfit.
Leandra Medine, Man Repeller
From the pool to dinner, Leandra’s sheer-dress-over-cutoffs outfit is perfect for an all day summer outing.
I don’t know about you, but I can’t afford to have a wardrobe reserved for every season (which is yet another reason I love being able to save money shopping recycled fashion at Crossroads!). I mix and match almost my entire wardrobe throughout the year, save for heavier winter pieces.
Having a limited wardrobe shouldn’t restrict your outfit choices; it just requires a little creativity. Wearing winter pieces into the hot summer months can be a bit tricky, so I’ve rounded up a few very simple ways that will keep you cool and stylish.
Button-down shirts are a classic staple throughout the year, but they can admittedly feel a bit heavy as temperatures rise. Simply rolling up the sleeves, investing in a short-sleeved button-down, tying the ends at your waist, or leaving a couple extra buttons undone will create a look that is both functionally and aesthetically cool.
Scarves and Bandanas
While you can get away with wearing a silky scarf or bandana around your neck on cooler summer days, if your temps are reaching the triple digits, they are better used to keep your hair off your neck.
I wear booties all year round, but once the temperatures rise, I stay away from pairing them with denim or pants. Overheating is no way to enjoy the summer! Balance the femininity of your summer dresses with your winter booties.
Lightweight Layering Pieces
Your lightweight long sleeves aren’t just for layering under sweaters during the winter; wear them under silky dresses and camisoles during the cooler summer months.
Sweaters and Cardigans
I am a total ‘90s girl at heart; I’ve been tying shirts around my waist for two decades and don’t see an end in sight. Something about that added layer adds an instant “cool factor” to your outfit. Tie your lightweight sweaters and cardigans around your waist to cinch in a shapeless dress or top, or simply to add an accessory piece to your outfit.
I typically gravitate towards darker, warmer colors, but the blazing heat of summer has me pulling together any all-white looks that I can. I am loving effortless, breezy fabric for this time of the year. Who has the patience for anything else during the summer? After scouring blogs and Pinterest for inspiration, it looks like I’m not alone in my current white obsession. Take a look at some of my favorite white hot summer looks below!
Soft, warm pink is the color of the season. Nicknamed “millenial pink” because the millenial generation has made it the color of the moment, this blush-toned, mood-boosting color is actually quite versatile. And it’s popping up everywhere—on runways, street style stars, and your favorite fashion-obsessed celebs.
Millennial or not, you can pull off this shade of pink. For your inspiration, I’ve rounded up some of my favorite ways to wear millennial pink this season.
Make it Sporty
To keep from looking too young and girly, find pink sporty pieces; think a cropped hoodie, a bomber jacket, or sneakers.
Mix & Match Fabrics and Textures
When wearing head-to-toe pink, mix and match fabrics and textures to break up the color.
Keep it Simple
When in doubt, keep it simple. Small, sophisticated details and embellishments help tone down this feminine color.
Add a playful twist to a classic; the next time you’re on the hunt for a suit set, look for one in a soft pink hue.
Pair With Contrasting Colors
Make a statement by pairing this soft shade with bold, saturated colors, like bright red or purple.
Accessorize an Edgy Outfit
Balance out the girly color by using it as an accessory in an otherwise edgy outfit.
Stripes will never go out of style. They work for any style—from preppy to minimalist to eclectic and more—and on every body type. Of course, stripes are a year-round style, but they are definitely having a moment this summer. Street style stars, bloggers, and fashion “It girls” everywhere are loving summer stripes. Take a look at some of my favorite bloggers looks featuring my favorite go-to pattern.
Blair Eadie, Atlantic Pacific
Blair scored the perfect striped summer dress via Reformation. If I could wish a dress into my closet, it would be this one! I love the wide stripes and the low neckline.
Tamu McPherson, All The Pretty Birds
Tamu’s modern mix of different stripe patterns puts a spin on two classic pieces! I wouldn’t have thought to pair the two together before seeing this outfit.
Jordan Blackwell, Lil Miss JB Style
Jordan paired a striped trouser with a chambray shirt to create a classic yet effortless summer uniform. Be right back—going to find a pair of striped paper bag trousers now!
