Here’s a trend that’ll shock you when you see it on the streets: plenty of designers showed sheer and lacy items (many lingerie-inspired) on the runway that left nothing to the imagination. From Christian Dior to Vera Wang, models strutted out covered in wispy fabric that gave just a hint of mystery. But these looks were not entirely overtly sexy – nothing skintight, nothing tasteless; there’s a certain level of class achieved through layers and delicate draping that give a floaty look instead. But still – directions: use sparingly.

Get the look with the mark. Flora Dress ($34) – sheer, bright, floral and comes with a satin slip underneath in case youd don’t want to expose too much! – and Touch of Lace Scarves ($16) – two lace scarves that give a subtle hint of the lingerie look.
