Trends today to can be over as fast as they appear. As a member of the over 30 set it can be a challenge to find a way to incorporate some of these trends into everyday life. Not to mention the fact that a lot of today’s fashion is being commandeered by the younger generations. From offices, night classes, tending to our families and maintaining our friendships, we want to stay comfortable but still look current and on trend and the good thing is that it’s easier than you think!
There’s no trick to rocking the latest trends while feeling empowered and sexy and maintaining our busy lives but still looking age appropriate. Many of our favorite shopping destinations and designers have created a plethora of options that are well-tailored, beautiful and fall within any budget. When it comes to wearing the sheer trend the key is to pick one feature with which you are most comfortable showing a little skin. I find that the arms, shoulders and décolletage are the most appealing. Add lace, embroidery, or a little sheen for a bit more pop. The beautiful thing about the sheer trend is that it works for both day and night and is great for adding a little sex appeal to your outift without giving too much away or looking trashy.
Not only can you dress up sheer as a night or office look, you can throw it on during the day in the form of a bohemian-inspired dress or a cute top with sheer paneling paired with your favorite jeans and biker boots. The best thing about fashion these days is that you should do what your personal style tells you and as long and you work it with confidence, you can’t be stopped!
