Signature Style how to wear...
Karlya Smith brings you the latest in fashion.
A SEE-THROUGH TOP
Breezy, diaphanous clothes arriving in-store signals warm weather on the horizon. Although it’s a stretch to imagine wearing something the wind can blow through just now, sheers are especially good for evening or formal wear, and that’s the kind of dressing where it pays to plan ahead. A sheer lace top, in particular, is a great way to update an existing evening skirt or pants.
This Juliette Hogan lace T-shirt is more see-through than it looks here – we’re seeing both layers of the lace front and back. It’s very gauzy, so a slip is in order – a pale or skin tone one would show up the pattern, but I’ve gone dark to work tonally with the top. I’ve added a nude tone bra as the straps will show less, but with the perfect slip for your bra, the straps can sit flush.
