From Left to Right: Dior, Osman, Molly Goddard, Valentino, Rochas
Style Notes: The see-through dress ruled supreme in London. Well, in a city where the lines between party outfits and day-to-day looks are forever blurred, it makes sense. LFW wunderkind Molly Goddard led the pack with her confections of pastel-hued tulle and the trend continued well into Paris. We fantasised over the balletic ensembles under Maria Grazia Chiuri’s debut Dior collection—Bella Hadid has been the first out and about wearing them, the lucky girl.
So how to wear this semi-opaque spring/summer 2017 fashion essential? Firstly, remember this is a million (pretty-punk) miles away from the A-list world’s “naked dress” obsession. You don’t want tight, and you don’t the want modesty-saving embellishment, because you’ll be layering it up. It’s also dependent on how bravely you’ll dare to bare. Keep it casual by flinging a gossamer-light sheer slip-of-a-thing over jeans and a tee, or go the full nine yards and style out with a flash of giant knickers. The latter is not a formula for work, but it is a fast track to feeling au courant, for sure.
