Let's face it, huge trend or not, sheer dressing is far from easy. Most of us aren't accustomed to showing off what our mommas gave us to the rest of the world. And given that fall weather has at last showed its pretty little face, it's also hardly weather-appropriate. Alas, when a new mode starts popping up in one form or another on every runway, street style website and influencer's Instagram feed, it's hard to just say "Nope! Not doing it!" We simply have to try and make it work. In comes sheer turtlenecks, a.k.a. the perfect balance between sheer and not too sheer.
As per usual, when we're on the precipice of trying out a trend, we turn to the experts. Thankfully, the fall/winter 2018 runways were filled with sheer turtlenecks of all prints and colors, leaving us stacked with endless styling inspiration. From mesh styles layered under dresses at Jason Wu to lace pieces matched with two-piece suits at Alexander Wang — you don't have to show it all off, that is, unless you want to.
