How many times have you had to face the decision between that sliver of chocolate cake for dessert or saving yourself the extra few pounds? How many times have you chosen the cake? Believe me, I’m guilty of picking dessert every time. Summer can be an unforgiving time for the muffin top. How do you compromise between covering up “the stuff” without wearing layers of clothing? Fortunately for us, that’s where sheer tops save the day. Aside from giving us that subtle bit of sexiness, sheer tops are so practical for this time of year. Just throw them on over a cami or tee and you’re good to go! Here are some of our favorites…

Simple Top Layers – Sometimes, it’s best to keep it simple. Wearing a minimal sheer blouse or tunic allows you to play around with fun accessories while still getting that breathable top layer you desire.

Flutter Sleeves and Ruffles – The type of sleeve that you choose plays a large role in setting the mood of the look. Romantic accents like flutter sleeves and ruffles in a sheer chiffon create a billowy feminine vibe.

Hints of Lace – When you can add a little lace to your look, don’t pass up the opportunity. Sheer lace (when done right) can give you that subtly sexy but completely classy style.

Sheer Floral Prints – Not only do prints help conceal “the fluff”, florals are a staple of summer and pop over white jeans. My advice, take advantage of being able to wear them while you can.
