The rationale behind our obsession with sheer pieces is twofold. First, they contribute a demure, gossamer touch to an outfit that no other material can achieve. Second, they’re the tropical fashion girl’s favored layering tool—since we can’t stack knits and wools in this weather, we cling for dear life onto gauzy tulle and breathable organza.
That said, diaphanous garb are easier to style than you may think. Do away with associating them solely with ballerinas or debutante dresses. You can totally adapt them to your personal style. You just have to be willing to experiment!

8 Chic Ways to Wear Anything Sheer, As Seen on Stylish Influences and Celebrities:
1. Patricia Prieto: Balloon Sleeve Top + Cropped Sweater Vest + Beaded Mask Chain + Jeans + Black Crossbody Bag
When experimenting with a new piece, go ahead and anchor your OOTD on something as familiar as jeans, and branch out from there. Patricia added a dainty touch to a light academia outfit, pairing a collared organza blouse with a color block knitted sweater vest. The tight color scheme makes for a cohesive look. And, of course, the beaded and silver accessories add even more texture and personality!

2. Daryl Chang: Puff Sleeve Tiered Dress + Printed Headscarf + White Socks + Sneakers
Dress down your dotted tulle frock with a comfy shoe. Play up the girlish silhouette with a printed headscarf, and complete the look with dark sunglasses. This is why we love interesting dresses — they make looking chic so easy.
3. Janella Salvador: Dotted Tulle Blouse + Patterned Set + Red Heels
Grab a set in a contrasting fabric and a standout print, and wear it over the sheer blouse you've been saving and/or have been hesitant to style! As for Janella, she picked out a checkered corduroy set in a red hue, and wore shiny apple-colored heels to match! Save this bubbly OOTD in case you're already planning for your holiday outfit.
4. Sarah Lahbati: Bustier Top with Tulle Sleeves + High Waist White Jeans + Leather Handbag + Nude Heels
Looking for a relatively sultry, skin-baring way to style tulle? Go for a bustier top that flatters your décolletage, and garterized tulle sleeves. Oh, and in case you didn't know, some sheer sleeves are detachable from the top—you can just roll them up like arm warmers. Balance out the eye-catching piece with neutral pants and mules. If you dare, you can also opt to tote a bag in a bold hue to elevate your look even further.
5. Verniece Enciso: Maillot + Sheer Pants + Gold Necklace + Printed Tote
Show off some leg with daring sheer pants! Like Verniece, wear it to the beach with a statement maillot. (If you sometimes venture into hubadera dressing, feel free to replicate this lewk with a bodysuit and some sassy steppers). Optional: Throw in a designer bag, if and only if you’re willing to tote it seaside!
6. Vern Enciso: Organza Button-Down + Pearl Chain Crossbody Bag + High Waist Tweed Trousers
Here’s the most important part when styling a see-through top: Proper underwear. We argue that your choice of underwear will visually impact your OOTD just as much as the sheer piece. If you’re not too keen with on simply layering on another blouse, make sure your innerwear is either invisible or cute enough to be the focal point.
7. Renee de Guzman: Long Sleeve Maxi Dress + Beaded Accessories + Black Handbag
Diffuse a sullen all-black look by sneaking in some lace and girlish details, like bows and beads. Renee wore a maximalist black dress with the cutest ribbon bag, and accessorized with floral clips and earrings, as well as some gold jewelry.
8. Kylie Verzosa: Puff Sleeve Organza Top + Black Bra + Iridescent Pants + Colorful Designer Bag
Turn up the sultriness by wearing a dark bra under a see-through top. Pair it with standout shiny pants and a super cute compact handbag with bubblegum-hued details. This is a chic and rather edgy way to wear color!
