And we thought sheer took off on a break, but we were wrong. The see-through fabric is still the hot trend. In the recently concluded Met Gala, we witnessed a load more innerwear, and in few cases less to nothing to all. Taking this officially declared summer trend of 2017, you can think of pairing it with maxi tops and fitted lace dresses for a touch of elegance.

The see-through dress is also making a powerful statement in Bollywood. In an industry, where work entails between daily looks and party outfits, it all kind of makes sense. So, how do you wear a similar semi-opaque style?
- One tip is to go far as you can dare to bear, but do not hurl down your reservations.
Designer Ridhi Mehra said, “It has been a part of a few seasons but every time underwent innovation on the runway.” It has evolved over the years, says designer Pallavi Mohan.
- Try to keep it light and informal by flinging in a demure sheer-slip-top over denims and a tee. Sure, this is not the best outfit to take to office, but it is the quickest way to feel instantly confident and trendy.
At one time, bralettes was reserved for a day at the beach. Until one experiment of wearing bralettes over buttoned-up shirts and skirts cropped up, and the rest is history. The new trend of bralettes is all about showing it all.
So, what defines a bralette from a traditional pair? It is basically a mixture of a lace bra and sports bra. Typically, these bralettes do not have underwires and are most comfortable. It is the better fit for summer.
- If you are not confident about wearing them out, then pair it underneath a lace blouse.
This summer, stripes are everywhere. This print must share serious space in your wardrobe. It is one of the most wearable prints and a favorite when it comes to styling.
- You can stick to stripes in primary colours such as white, red, mustard yellow and blue.
- One way to wear stripes the right way is to wear bigger horizontal stripes over your top, and wear small vertical stripes over your lower half.
- Stick to black and navy blue while starting out with stripes. Then, eventually you can move on to black and blue.
- Also, it can help to make minimal use of accessories.
- Pick footwear that are simple and nothing fancy.
- Approach stripes without the slightest of hesitation; which means you can merge it with denim, leather and khakis. Other prints such as leopard prints, florals and polka dots are pretty sellable, as well.
Lemonade yellow is the colour of the season. This is the perfect colour transition from Spring to Summer. It is a happy and vibrant colour. Styling this sunny yellow from head-to-bottom can be a bold move, for many. But that’s the beauty of styling yellow. You have to go for it totally as there is no ‘in between.’

It is time to literally give your toes a little peek-a-boo and revel in the sunshine. Any woman can agree that an outfit is incomplete with proper footwear. So, should you choose- slides, platforms or mules? Kick off the season on the right foot with the best sandals to slide and strap on.

So, it is best to pick a safe bet like how Jacqueline Fernandez did. Her furry slides complemented her geeky getup. Or you can pick up nude mules or platforms to go with your sun dresses. We liked Mira Kapoor’s great picks and subtlety.
