The truth: sheer tops are IN! Also the truth: sheer tops can be challenging to style and uncomfortable to wear. But the good news is, there are so many kinds of sheer tops, which makes it easy to pick ones that shield your problem areas while highlighting your best assets! And yes, sheer CAN be classy.

Fashion's favorite tops get a sultry evening-ready refresh this season. To master your next date night look, opt for romantic ruffles, dramatic hues, and sexy sheer detailing for major after-dark impact. I love how this Zara top is short, flowy, and shows off peek-a-boos of skin without being over-the-top; the high-neckline helps keep this piece polished enough for a fancy dinner.

With any crop top, high-waisted jeans are a must. I chose a pair with some chic multi-button detailing that's just begging to be shown.

The heels of the moment allow you to step into your own fantasy. Look to lustrous materials, exotic prints, and luxe textures for a fairytale ending to your go-to denim. I chose metallic pointed-toe pumps with a snakeskin cap to give my dreamy look a modern touch of whimsicality.

Echoing the hint of python on my heels, I teamed this look with my favorite Rebecca Minkoff bag - in snakeskin of course.

No necklace equals EXTRA attention-grabbing earrings. I wanted a dainty, elegant pair that helped make my top shine. I think the two ended up bringing out the best in each other, don't you think?

I FINALLY got a Kylie Jenner lipgloss...and I didn't even purchase it for myself. My BFF actually gave it to me as a birthday gift, and it was seriously the most perfect surprise! She chose a gloss from Kylie's metallics collection for me, "Reign." It's like a bronzey, reddish, orangeish, shimmery matte gloss - if that makes any sense. But however you choose to describe it, it looks FIERCE once applied!

A look like this definitely makes a statement, which is why I love it! However, it must be worn with confidence - cheesy but SO true! When done right, wearing sheer pieces conveys the message that you're fashionable and you know it, and who wouldn't want that, right? 

I sported this look during NYC Restaurant Week when a bunch of girl friends and I went out to dinner at a trendy Mediterranean spot. For a night out on the town, this is a go-to.

  3. Wow that top is absolutely gorgeous! I don't really have that many sheer items in my closet, because they do need confidence to wear them. And you for sure look stunning in yours - totally loving the layering of it.
