Rad Or Bad? Would You Wear Sheer Pants?


No one can deny that the sheer trend isn't the easiest to rockā€”but from shirts to socks, we've managed to find ways to pull 'em off. But when it comes to pants, we have a feeling that the only ones that should be wearing them see-through style are belly dancers and fire eaters. But Alexander Wang and Valentino both showed barely there pants this year, and a quick scan of our favorite e-commerce shops show that they're is being stocked in stores. Should we be equal-opportunists when it comes to all things sheer? Tell us: Are sheer pants cool or are they transparently bonkers?
