Although a lot of women think that they have to show everything that they have (literally), some fashion forward designers have recognized the potential of sheer materials and they used them to create lightweight and elegant pieces.
Clare Waight Keller
She is the designer who came up with Chloe’s collection for spring. The main focus of the collection has been to offer women spring pieces that become a great introduction for summer, that are light, and brightly colored. This is why the designer opted for lightweight chiffon. This is wonderful material because it is transparent but it doesn’t reveal everything.
“Not Everyone’s Perfect”
These were the words of the designer. She is aware of the fact that not all girls look like the girls on the runways. This is why her goal has been to come up with something appealing but also wearable even for those who don’t have the perfect body.
What to Expect?
Although there are a lot of chiffon items, the collection also comes with whispy, lacy, delicate dresses. On the other hand, there are some edgy pieces which are just perfect for the sidewalks.
The Sheer Dilemma
In order to address the problems of women regarding sheer pieces, she used georgette woven in Japan, which is airy and light. The designer opted for khaki, sand color, and white items. Then she moved on to the scarf hem dresses and the slim trousers.
One of the highlights of the show has been the loose top with a gauzy bottom part. Such pieces will make it possible for women to rock the sheer trend without going overboard.
Although you might think that Keller only used boring colors, you should be prepared for the blue hues that she called Tuareg. In fact this hue has been worn by the tribes living in Mali. Just as it was to be expected, the pieces were airy and loose, including the floaty skirts.
For the Night
In the majority of the cases women are looking for more colors for the night. This is why the designer introduced pink jumpsuits and black hem dresses. Keller made the pieces interesting through the gold chains that served as accessories while they kept the dresses in place.
If you are looking for something casual yet elegant and feminine, this is the collection that you should take a look at and you can be sure that you will find something that you will like.
