sheer shirt trends for fall at intermix

You may remember recent autumn overtures from  a pair of  Chinese Laundry Sheer Toeless Booties at Lori’s.

Well here come some sheer shirts for fall over at Intermix and added are some ideas on how to and not to  - please - wear them -

If you layer one sheer top over another, you still keep the sheer feel but make seeing thru your shirt for the observer a little more difficult.

Or you can wear a jacket - and there are so many cute ones for fall it is hard to know where to begin. When did jackets get this cute?

Just don’t take it off.

These tops would look fab with some good old fashioned trousers and the following accessories - which – shucks, we’re in luck - are being featured this fall also - they are always thinking of us, aren’t they?

Adding heaviness and chunkiness with a knit beret and scarf will add nice contrast to the light sheer layer of the top.  Just please wear something besides a bra underneath these tops.  Truly, nobody wants to see your bra. Even men, at least good men, the kind you want to take you out to dinner and marry you and be your friends and have great enduring romances with -  the ones you want to create myths, annals, legends with  - they don’t want to see your bra either – not in this context.

And until there is Photoshop in real life, maybe try to stay away from something like this -

which is troubling.

Of course if it’s bra or no bra, we’ll take the bra. 

This is on sale from this past season and it looks easier to work with than some of these tops, because you could just put a black tee or turtleneck and black leggings under it for fall, some boots, then maybe layer a blazer or jean jacket, big scarf and you’d look great -

Can you imagine going to dinner and a movie on Friday night when it is freezing cold outside in this?  I can :)

All the above items except the black turtleneck and the bodysuit are from Intermix.  They have a perfectly edited selection over there, just a bit pricey.  But not to worry there will be less expensive versions of these trends everywhere by September.
