sheer luck

i've recently fallen for the sheer trend. from floaty blouses to see-through cardigans, sheer pieces feel modern, romantic, and a little bit edgy.  the best part is how you can expose lots of skin through a thin veil of dreamy chiffon, but nothing about it seems at all racy or scandalous.  just a hint of sex appeal is perfect for these humid july nights! {i wrote extensively about the trend over at college magazine, complete with shopping tips & examples -- check it out here!}

and with perfect timing, liz styled her take on the trend yesterday when we grabbed a quick mexican lunch. she paired her topshop fish-net-y maxi dress  with a cream cotton slip to keep everything covered up -- but she still showed some leg and maintained a breezy, summery vibe. 

{ earthy accessories & mixed metals complete the look. // h&m sunglasses, target belt / (her right arm) h&m cuff / (her left arm) david yurman aquamarine cuff, stella & dot bracelet, urban outfitters leather wrap, david yurman ruby cuff, forever 21 bangle, ottoman hands for topshop bracelet }
