So here is our very own Fashionista in the collective. Please say hello to Hayley Rose @HayleyThrills
Here is her take on the latest Spring/Summer Trends of 2013. 

Sheer Bliss
One of the new styles to hit catwalks and high streets this year is the sheer and see through fashion. Anything from a chiffon top to a see through panelled skirt is considered bang on trend. This is a very feminine and sexy trend, you can show off as much or as little as you like, which is good for both extroverts and introverts.

Jill Stuart a fashion designer from New York who made her name in the early nineties with her designs being used in the film Clueless has showed this trend on the catwalks. She uses cheer fabrics, cut up and as I like to call it sliced and diced, lace, ruffles, florals, bows and sequins.

Cushine et Ochs Carly Cushine and Michelle Ochs are both graduates of the famous American Design School Parsons. They are well known for their minimalist and effortless styles. They use sheer fabrics, satin, silk, floral lace and panelling. They have featured the sheer trend on the catwalks as well as “peekaboo midriff” and the very minimalist all whites trends.

Timo Weiland is a fashion designer based in New York City where he launched his namesake brand, and started working with Alan Eckstein. Their mutual interests and passions soon bought together a great team. The Timo Weiland collection reflects both Timo himself and Alan. They use sheer fabrics, solid colour or patterned panels, and floating skirts.

Nicole Miller is an American designer and business woman. Her signature style is fabric manipulation and she is a self-confessed fabric junkie. Her designs are well known as sexy yet classic. For this trend she has used cut outs, showing skin, sheer blouses with graphic leggings, black sheer panels with floral prints and the designs have been described as preppy.

Jason Wu is a Taiwanese-Canadian fashion designer based in New York City. He is well known for designing several of Michelle Obama’s dresses. This is the most innovative take on the sheer trend, which can only be described as patch work sheer. He uses sheer fabrics, specially placed panels and feminine scalloped edges, the full skirts on the classy dresses adds such drama and elegance (which is why Michelle Obama loves him I am sure).

This trend is girlie, sexy and feminine, and should be very popular with all types of girls (and guy’s hehe). I am sure as this trend filters into high street stores and becomes more affordable for the working and unworking masses there will be very different takes on the trend itself. There is always a way to make something your own and give it an individual twist. Give this trend a go and mail me pictures to ( I will share them on my blog and twitter. Don’t forget girls fashion can be sheer bliss.
