How to Wear It:

In everyday life, pearls work well with mixed with something more casual to bring a timeless vibe to your whole outfit. Plus, they’re easy to wear in a variety of settings, from cocktail party to backyard BBQ. Anything from a pearl-embellished denim jacket to a simple black tee with appliqués makes a major statement.

 

 

 

  1. Sheer Tops

Wedding dress designers essentially created the “nude illusion” phenomenon, so it wasn’t surprising at all when the mainstream version, sheer tops, started cropping up everywhere. This style is especially great when weather turns chilly, since it allows you to show a little skin while still feeling somewhat covered.

 

 

 

How to Wear It:

Whether you go dressy or casual with this look, a pretty bra to wear underneath is a must—perhaps something lacy or strappy. Try pairing these daring tops with anything from jeans to skirts, or even layer one underneath a low-cut sleeveless dress for a little something extra.
