Runway Trendspotting: See through!



Sheer fabrics are everywhere and see through effect seems to be the ultimate trend for next spring. Mostly featured in tops and dresses, sometimes in denier fabrics and sometimes not, revealing skin to the fullest or the minimum accordingly.

The transparent coat appeared in New York fashion week more than once in the collections of Lacoste and Prabal Gurung making a strong statement about the raincoat vibe brought to summer. My favorite one was the Advisory sweater spotted in Alexander Wang's show, which I found to be the most hip, fashion forward version of the bring-out-the-sex-appeal technique of see through. So what do you think? Will you pick up or put down this trend for next spring?
