Sheer Spring

A more mature and refined sense of femininity seems to be the focus of the spring and summer runway collections. Moving past the Barbiecore and girlhood trends that dominated last year, the newest looks show romantic detailing like lace and sheer layered fabrics, giving a sense of sensuous curves.

Looks seen on the runways of Prada, Dior and other designers embody these “Botticelli vibes” by layering and bunching thin fabrics like tulle, mesh or chiffon in white and other light colors to create a floating, ethereal look.

While gauzy floral appliques or floral-esque colors are not groundbreaking for spring runways, the style is being updated to a more monochromatic color palette that focuses on whites, creams and light lilacs. This year’s take on the style plays on texture and emphasizes material rather than an overt pattern.

Looks featuring sheer pieces continue to trend on and off the red carpet, urging those wearing it to embrace the sensuous, celestial aesthetic. But don’t worry, you don’t have to bare it all—the look can be achieved with a light, flowy blouse or sheer socks.
