This year I’ve really tried to think outside my usual box when it comes to fashion. I may not always be as fashion-forward as some, but trying things like crop tops and body con dresses gave me a boost of confidence to continue trying new fashion trends in 2017.
One trend I wanted to indulge in this year is with sheer fabrics — resisting the urge to put on a cami with see-through shirts.
Now this isn’t a trend I recommend for the workplace, but for a fun day date or a night out, it’s definitely doable.
I went for a more casual look with this sheer blouse and olive pants with black striping from Lane Bryant, but these pants can easily be dressed up, too. I paired them with my comfy Michael Kors slip-on sneaks and a cherry red Coach bag (similar).
One note of caution with sheer styles (or anything where your bra will be exposed) — this is the time to show off your best, newest bra. Don’t be caught with frayed edges or graying fabric if your bra is on display.
What trends are you planning to rock in 2017?
