Your grandma might not approve, but skirts have had a not-so-modest makeover.
As seen on the runways of the biggest and best; Chanel and Christian Dior sent delicate, sheer skirts in black mesh and lace storming down the SS23 runway. Eckhaus Latta and Lanvin’s offerings were in softer, springier shades of mint and khaki, while Marques’ Almeida’s take was a touch more bombastic, in wide fishnet fabric that promises no coverage, but a lot of fun.
It was Prada’s AW22 half-and-half see through skirts that seemed to really kickstart proceedings, with our street style favourites furiously adding them to their baskets. They offer business up top with robust mohair, and see-through fabric below. A sartorial mullet if you will. For celebrity inspiration, all hail Queen Florence Pugh, who’s been busy teaching a masterclass in sheer clothing in her recent red-carpet appearances, often opting for designer favourite Valentino.
How do I style a sheer skirt?
You can easily tip the trend either way, paring down the scandalous nature of see-through clothing by teaming your skirt with some sensible tailoring up top. If you don’t want to flash any flesh, simply layer over another skirt or a pair of trousers so you can stay properly covered up, or try layering several sheer skirts atop one another. Alternatively, if you’re feeling a bit cheeky , flash your pants with pride. To really ramp up the fun, there are plenty of rhinestone embellished versions to choose from.
