Sheer black fashions have been all over the runways lately and judging from Gucci’s Fall 2012 collection the trend is ongoing. This is not a fad, but a reinvention of a classic look. Sheer black fabric lends an air of mystery and a subtle sex appeal, baring the skin without exposing too much. Sophisticated, glamorous, elegant and feminine are the words that come to mind to describe this look.
NOW-Below are a few of my favorites featuring the current sheer black fashion trend.
