How to: wear sheer white shirts

This post was a request from NenaTH. She left me a comment on my previous post asking if I could show her how I would style a sheer white shirt. I don’t have many details on how her shirt looks like, so I’ve put up five different ideas. Here are a few tips I take into consideration when wearing a sheer shirt:

  1. Always wear something underneath, like a white or beige tank top, unless you want your shirt to be really see-through.
  2. If you feel like the shirt looks too baggy or big on you, pair it up with a waist belt and/or a vest.
  3. A statement piece of jewelry, like a long necklace or some big earrings, can turn the simplest outfit into an amazing one.

Number 1. This outfit is rather casual and you could wear it on a daily basis. It has: a white top, a pair of denim high-waisted shorts, an infinity scarf, a pair of beige heels, a shoulder bag and a pair of golden earrings.



Number 2. This is also a casual outfit. I’ve paired the sheer white shirt with: a pair of skinny jeans, a pair of flats, a shoulder bag and a pair of earrings. It’s really simple and can be worn on many occasions.



Number 3. This outfit is a good example of how you can wear a baggy shirt with a waist belt. It really makes your body seem more fit and it’s great for hot summer days. I chose to pair it up with: a pair of dark skinny jeans, a pair of high heels and a simple bag.



Number 4. The sheer white top from this outfit is more elegant and I think this outfit would be great to wear at the office. I’ve paired the top with: a pair of grey pants, a pair of black high-heels, a black blazer and a grey bag.



Number 5. Here’s another idea on how to wear a sheer top: you could tuck it in your skirt or shorts and add a waist belt to make the outfit seem more ‘together’. And I’ve paired these with: a pair of brown heels and a shoulder bag.     



And Nena also said that she recently bought an animal print belt and wasn’t sure how to wear it, so here are a few ideas:



Hope this was helpful! Let me know what you think and if you have any suggestions for a future 'how to wear..' (a trend, style or piece of clothing)  or 'what to wear..' (to a certain event or occasion). 
Thank you for reading!

  7. @NenaTH: You are SO welcome! :)
    I think your belt would go great with those looks too. And since it has some black in it, you could also wear it with a black tank top or skirt. It's really versatile!
