SOME MAY SAY IT’S TOO REVEALING WHILE OTHERS SAY ITS JUST A PEEK – WHAT WE KNOW FOR SURE IS THAT DESIGNERS ARE KEEPING US ON THE RIGHT SIDE OF DARING WITH SHEER FABRICS THIS SEASON.
Chiffon. Nylon. Mesh. These three fabrics dominated the fall runways this season from New York to Paris and Milan.
Chiffon in French simply means cloth but in the physical, it is has a unique sheerness that is distinguishable in comparison to other fabrics. When used in fashion, it gives the garment a soft drape, shimmer, and stretch.
Nylon is the less expensive way to master transparency. It is a synthetic silk that is used across the globe for a lot more functions than just to create clothing. As sportswear grows in popularity for its look of ease and comfort, mesh is the next go-to fabric in the market to spice things up a bit.
There’s even a sheer look for those who are looking to protect their modesty which can be achieved by layering. Layer over anything opaque or your favorite pair of jeans as seen with the Off-White during the New York Fashion Week presentation. With sheer detail, any woman can pull off the nonchalant cool factor so it is no surprise that transparency trends have made its way back up the fashion ladder.
