Nude Blouse & Pre-Thanksgiving Sale List

If there's one thing to focus on this season - it's all things sheer. A sheer blouse can be the key element for a perfect feminine and elegant ensemble. The important thing to keep in mind is to cover something, but not everything. Choose a suitable blazer, a fuller bra or a camisole to cover the over-exposed areas.
Nude illusion apparel is the sexy and mysterious twist to the trend of see-through lace or barely-there attire. The nude illusion exudes pure sexiness as it highlights all the features of your silhouette by giving the perception of baring skin. Try pairing a sheer blouse with a fitted blazer and business slacks for a work look or jeans and a fur vest for an everday casual look. 
This flowy feminine shirt is meant to give you a girl-appeal, but sometimes we just want to be a little tough. Here I paired it with my beloved leopard skirt with lace underlining and black clutch for an edgy and fun look. 
Nude is a tricky trend but can be very classy and sexy when done right. Always remember - when in doubt, coverage is key. Wear them tucked in with tailored trousers, skirts or shorts and ensure that your choice of undergarment is carefully selected as it is key to the success of your outfit. Give off the illusion of being "barely there" but remember to leave some mystery to what lies beneath.

  10. This looks fantastic, I've got a lacy top that I've been playing around with the sheerness of. I think one of the keys is that to keep it from being 'over the top' it should be a little looser. Form fitting & sheer tends to be a little bit to much. The shirt you have here is just perfect on you.

    ReplyDelete
  11. Thanks for all your tips! I find these tops very difficult to style because when I see them on the rack, I just think that it's sheer and I'm unsure of what to wear with them.

    Probably a good time for polyvore! Have a lovely thanksgiving.
