On Trend: Sheer Hemlines

Sheer fabrics were a key trend for spring/summer 2013, and we saw many designers exercise the new-found penchant for skin-baring details via a sheer hem skirt.

Giambattista Valli took up the trend with gusto in his deliciously minimal collection, paring sheer hems with peplum tops and boxy cropped sweaters.

Chloe showed floaty sheer dresses with pleated hems for a fun, fresh and very feminine look.

Christopher Kane’s predominantly sheer collection was brimming with embellished sheer hemlines on dresses and skirts.

Thakoon worked layers of sheer over pretty frocks that worked to create a ghostly, ethereal appearance to classic RTW pieces.

The sheer panels in Stella McCartney’s oversized, minimal looks added length, interest and a dash of feminine charm.
