Fashion has, for a long time, been characterized by a cyclic revolution.

It was the birth of the renowned designers in the fashion industry today.

The sheer style traces back to the 16th century, where both men and women wore it. The style was different: some garments featured tons of ruffles while others gathers and pleats. As it is typical of fashion trends: it has had a comeback in the European catwalk. Just like in old times, style bloggers and fashion editors have found different ways of going sheer: layering sheer skirts with beachwear or denim shorts like ones available at www.tally-weijl.com/en_UK adds modesty to the see-through sheer garments.
