The latest dress trend is a sheer delight, with catwalks and red carpets around the world hosting this racy craze. See-through outfits are a hot topic in the fashion world, and while celebrities are continuing to wear them, they’re now starting to crop up on the high street, too.
Although it might seem to many that this sheer trend is new and ground-breaking, others will remember Cher at the Oscars ceremony more than 30 years ago. Her black dress raised some eyebrows back then for being revealing, and then she wore another in the same vein ten years later.
Fashion often follows roughly 20-year cycles, so it is no surprise that we are seeing sheer celebrity dresses all over, and designers are getting increasingly raunchy with their clothes as celebrities are becoming bolder with how much they are willing to reveal.
Today’s designs go further than Cher’s cut-away dresses as they don’t offer much coverage of any part of the body! Celebrities like Kim Kardashian have made a lot of money from people talking about their bodies. Others fully embracing the nearly-there trend include Kendall Jenner, Naomi Campbell, Gigi Hadid, Rita Ora and Chrissy Teigen.
Sheer fabric with very carefully applied embellishments complete these celebrity dresses, and it’s down to a matter of opinion whether they are classified as wardrobe malfunctions or not!
Wear The Trend
Naturally, this super-sheer bare-all clothing is not for everyone, though for those keen on keeping up with the latest trends, there are less revealing ways of staying in vogue. There are retailers like A X Paris at www.axparis.com/collections/celebrity-dresses with a range of celebrity-inspired dresses, and many other high street retailers are embracing aspects of the trend without baring all!
A flash of flesh, whether it’s arms or legs, or a sheer nude lining are great ways to get involved and protect your modesty at the same time. Perhaps you might try a sheer sleeve.

While these dresses continue to be seen as risqué and controversial, the trend will continue, though it will likely fizzle out when it no longer warrants column inches. Someday soon, someone will do something considered more worthy of attention and the focus will move.
