Reader Request: Styling Sheer Fabrics

Lovely reader Holly e-mailed me this question:

I am obsessed with sheer blouses. Your post about “Dressing Our Imaginary Selves” made me realize that sheer blouses are my thing. I am drawn to them, but I don’t know how to wear them. I would love advice on how to wear them professionally and somewhat modestly (I’m fine with a tank underneath, but no bra or navel-showage please!). Do you tuck them? Leave them flowy? Wear with pants? Skirts? Under a sweater or blazer? What do I do with them? I especially love white and cream-colored sheer blouses, and find them harder to style than colored sheers. read more

They blow-dry naked and sit on the benches talking with their gal-pals naked and walk from the shower to the locker area proudly, unabashedly naked. As my friend Miller puts it, most gym-goers are “striders or hiders.” I’m a hider. Surrounded by striders. read more
