THE SHEER FACTOR
conceal with fabric.
AS ON HOLLYWOOD RED CARPETS,
sheer fabric embellishments can be found in many a bridal runway show. It’s easy to see why: Doses of the gauzy fabric, often made of silk or chiffon, can strike a balance when you’d like to show a hint of skin. We scoured the Spring 2017 collections to bring you, left to right, the trend from nearly transparent to completely opaque, with a little something for everyone in between.
