Trend: The Sheer Blouse

I've been noticing a lot of sheer blouses for Spring and I'm not talking semi-transparent fabric with the additional insurance of a bra or tank underneath but full-on nipples-as-embellishments sheer. Check out the collections for Spring/Summer 2011:

Jason Wu

Obviously, the runway is prone to provocation and nudity is ok but no normal woman would wear once of these tops without something underneath. I've also been seeing lots of sheer button-downs with semi-sheer pockets over the breast-area. I suppose this is a more subtle way of covering up.

Dries van Noten


And some more sheer blouses in different styles:

Oscar de la Renta

Narciso Rodriguez

Dries van Noten


Marc Jacobs

Some options:
American Apparel

Elizabeth and James


I'm really liking this trend. I think it has something to do with the ambiguity of the transparency. I love the exposure of skin without it being obvious.
