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.

1. Ben­don Body seam-free con­tour bra, $45 2. Juli­ette Ho­gan Olive T-shirt in Odelia lace, $299 3. Sta­ple + Cloth Moon cami, $159 4. Blak Ebony skirt, $159, from blak.co.nz 5. Mer­chant 1948 Swift heels, $210, avail­able mid-septem­ber
