Sheer fabric is made by using thin thread or low density of knit resulting in a semi-transparent and flimsy cloth. Though sheer clothing had emerged in the world of fashion from the 1920’s but our fairly popular sheer stockings didn’t emerge as a trend until now. The see through fashion came in much before but the sheer material was covered with opaque garments underneath. And with that said here we are in the 21st century playing some peek-aboo and well, why not? If you’ve got it, you ought to flaunt it!
Sheer has been a whopping trend in the spring/summer 2013 and some major fashionista’s were spotted stealing the limelight in the sexy fabric leaving little to our imaginations while plenty of them committing social blunders in going over the board in baring! Still it’s a heart stealer among the gorgeous ladies. A big hit in Hollywood with major celebs spotted adorning the airy, light and edgy look exposing their bewitching bodies!
Here’s a sneak peek!!

Howbeit Bollywood hasn’t gone over the board with the bare it all trend. Reason we all know! It’s a little unsafe to dress like that and be up and about boasting our figures with prying eyes and all that scary male attention! Still the way the Indian designers use sheer is commendable, they very well know how to preserve the wearers modesty. They have picked on the versatile sari’s and lehengas and transformed the meaning of designing. Though most of us would think twice about copying this latest trend, these hotties have no qualms about showing off their sensual sides!
