Spring 2012 Trend: The New Sheer Skirt

A trend I’ve come across for Spring 2012 is the sheer skirt. However, these aren’t any ordinary sheer skirts; these are more of an illusion…it’s the new sheer skirt. The look of a short dress and a long sheer skirt with intricate detailing at the hem, these are definitely show stopping pieces.

  1. I absolutely love this trend. It may not be practical, but I can definitely see some bold trendsetters out there who will bring it to the streets.

  2. These looks are gorgeous for one, and I can definitely see a lot of people riding this wave, but for me, it isn’t the most practical… for lecture halls and all :)

  4. I’m not totally sold yet. I think it looks a little like the bottom layer of your dress ripped but you can’t bear to part with it so you just let it drag along the street.

  5. I think a more ready-to-wear version will definitely be hitting the streets this spring. I know I’m searching for the perfect sheer maxi skirt right now.
