Trending for Spring 2014: Sheer Bliss

Be sure to scroll to the bottom to check out the trend style guide – everything is under $100!

We are now on week four of my favorite Spring 2014 trends. Last week was “In Bloom” which were beautiful, secret garden-esque florals which is a trend that is popping up everywhere. So what else is in store for this wonderful season?

This week, we are going to focus less on colors and prints and more on fabric. We’re talking about “Sheer Bliss”. It’s all over the runways – pretty sheer detailing, sheer panels, sheer articles of clothing paired with fun prints and solid colored fabrics…it truly transforms an outfit by adding soft, translucent and feminine features.

This Spring, whether you choose a sheer blouse, a scuba skirt with sheer detail or a dress with sheer sleeves, you are adding a touch of elegance to your wardrobe. The look I am currently swooning over is a full, midi skirt paired with a soft sheer blouse – very reminiscent of the 1950’s.

Below are some of my favorite looks from the Spring 2014 runway.

What a soft and sweet look one can achieve with just some gauzy fabric. Below is a shopping guide of some lovely sheer and sheer paneled items I found while doing some “virtual window shopping”. Everything is under $100. Enjoy!
