Trend Report: Sheer

If you're not interested in the "latest upcoming designer" element of Graduate Fashion Week then it's a great way to get a sneak preview of the trends for Autumn/Winter. Although the established designers presented their Autumn/Winter collections in February at various fashion capitals around the globe, its easy to forget what was actually on show. So this week provided a quick reminder of the things that are sure to be rocking our wardrobes in just a few months.

One trend which appeared in every single show was sheer. Sheer chiffon was used in a variety of ways from revealing blouses (seen in the middle here) to layering it over bright colours for a slightly muted approach to the bright palette. It was both formal and playful often being oversized for a more flattering look. Obviously, the revealing way in which it appeared on the catwalk is not appropriate for everyday look but it's a great stomach cover up if you are uncomfortable with your shape there. It was mainly styled in a high neck way meaning it might not be appropriate for larger chested women. Try it out this summer with a sheer blouse over a bikini.
