Sheer fabric is having a fashion moment of sorts, and the trend seems here to stay! If you are done with those sheer tops, slip on a sheer maxi skirt and you are ready to rock any party in the city. Get your dose of inspiration from either pop singer Rihanna’s daring crochet number or our desi diva Huma Qureshi’s sheer skirt lined with a fitted skirt and many more celebs who are rocking the translucent skirt trend.  So, go sheer and flaunt some skin this season.

Get the look right:
1. Choose the right time and place: If you want to rock your sheer maxi skirt to work or a formal do, make sure it is fully lined. You can colourblock the lining with the skirt or play with the fabrics too. Switch to short shorts or a fitted mini for a more relaxed, casual occasion.

2. Switching things up: You can also team your sheer skirt with a pair of neon hued or eclectic printed leggings to quirk up the look. You can also wear the skirt slightly high waist on a solid toned slip or knee-length camisole.

3. Tone down the makeup: Carrying off this look is a cinch as long as you keep the rest of your get up relatively simple. No make-up look with a brush of mascara and a dab of pink gloss on the lips is more than enough. For the evening look, go bold with either your eyes or lips.

4. Walk the style talk: Heeled footwear such as pumps, open-toed heeled sandals and wedges are an ideal choice with this style to accentuate your legs.
