Question: How can I style a sheer dress from day to night?
Answer: One of the biggest trends this spring season is sheer. This delicate fabric is whimsical, feminine, and so fun to wear. Sheer details and cutouts were all over the runways back in the fall and can take your look to the next level. There are endless amounts of styles out there, so finding the right look for you will be a cinch!
It may seem impossible to make a sheer dress appropriate for dayime, but there are plenty of options that are perfectly appropriate to wear to class, work, or just out with girlfriends. Wear this adorable dress by a. drea with sheer details that can be worn day and night. This cream illusion-yoke dress has sheer cap sleeves, a scalloped hemline, and romantic lace which makes it a perfect dress for the springtime. Pair this dress with a classic denim jacket to stay warm in the cooler days, while also keeping the look causal. Continuing with the casual feel, pick a pair of western-style ankle boots. For accessories, I recommend a brown suede tote and a pair of gold earrings. Keep the makeup natural with nude eye makeup and a light pink lip.
For a night out: This same dress can be worn out at night with just a few easy adjustments. Swap the ankle boots with brown, strappy, high heeled, leather sandals. Add a cute and stylish army green military jacket for chilly evenings and to add a funkier vibe to the look. For a spring-y pop of color, add a coral bib necklace and a matching coral cross body bag. Makeup-wise, stick with the au naturale look, but pop a peachy tone on the cheeks and lip to give your face that fresh, springtime feel.
Another great way to take this dress from day to night is by adding a black leather moto jacket and a great pair of colored pointed-toe pumps (cobalt blue or yellow would look awesome). The juxtaposition of the leather jacket with the feminine sheer dress is the perfect pairing to go from innocent to edgy in no time.
You don’t need to add a million different pieces to your wardrobe in order to have different looks each day. Simply invest in a few key pieces like jackets, accessories, and different style shoes to take one key piece (like the a. drea dress!) from day to night.
