4 ways to sport sheer at school

One of the best parts of heading back to school is working all of your summer favorites into your fall wardrobe.  Sheer pieces are fab for school, since they’re totally easy to layer and tend to be a little nicer than your average tank.  Just make sure when you’re rockin’ this trend that you don’t break any dress code rules at your school—no one looks cute after getting stuck in detention.

 

Sheer beauty

Tossing on a silky sheer top is a great way to dress up a pair of casual shorts.  This peach color is practically a neutral, so you can throw in a patterned pair to spice things up.  Tuck your shirt into these tribal print shorts, and rock this for class while the weather is still warm or throw on some black tights when the fall chill sets in!

Sheer chicness

Sheer is definitely not a retro trend, but that doesn’t mean you can’t channel the good ole days with a simple chambray shirt and midi skirt.  The miniskirt lining and longer overlay lets you show off your fab legs, but keeps ya covered enough for any school dress code.  Plus, the super floaty chiffon keeps this denim shirt lookin’ girly.  Finish off the look with a modern twist on a bow (like these earrings) and some cute, patterned flats.

Sheer brilliance

This play on a tank top and jeans is perfect for history class with that new cutie.  This shirt gives ya a little extra coverage: The overlapping layers make the middle of the shirt much less see-through.  Pair it with a flirty and flouncy denim skater skirt and toss on a cardi. A bright headband and metallic shoes complete the girly look. Pretty!

Sheer sweetness

Who knew a shirt could transform black jeans into something downright girly?  This flirty floral top is delicate enough for any girly girl, but you can pair it with a pair of tough wedges to keep you lookin’ cool.  Since the pattern is so crazy, keep your accessories pretty simple.  A flower ring accents your shirt without being overpowering.  This look is casual enough to wear to school, but def nice enough if you’re dressin’ to impress: Try it on a day when you have a big presentation.
