Naked dresses have long been a staple on celeb red carpets. But one of summer’s favorite trends promises to bring them—and naked tops and naked skirts—into the mainstream. Sheer clothes have crept into your favorite retailers en masse, leaving you with a veritable plethora of translucent duds to choose from—and sport any time it’s too damn hot for real clothes. (Summer is coming, after all.)

And let’s be clear, here: When we say sheer, we mean it. Organzas and meshes abound. Though one of 2019’s other favorite trends, crochet, offers the occasional peep-shoe through loosely woven fabrics, summer’s sheer clothing trend means full visibility at all times. This is, of course, an opportunity to show off that adorable bralette you just picked up—but it’s also an easy way to dress up a low-key ensemble. Could your go-to tee-and-jeans combo use a little something extra? Toss a sheer dress over it. Want to elevate your bike shorts? Sport them under a sheer skirt.

For too long, layering has been a strictly fall/winter affair, but 2019’s sheer clothing trend offers to render it a year-round practice. Opportunities for all kinds of sartorial creativity await—start shopping them.
