The best sheer dresses of the season

Peekaboo style is where it’s at right now. So right for your fancy events, but also the one for stage-chasing this summer, see-through dresses will see you through your social calendar with ease.

We've been dreaming of pastel-hued, fluff-filled, mesh wardrobes since the girls at Molly Goddard took to the runway for SS17. Frills ran from the shoulders down to the wrists and XXL skirts had more tiers than a Marie Antoinette cake. Divine.

Cara Delevingne took her fancy occasion style to the next level with this dreamy, tiered, sheer maxi dress in mint green (+ super-girlie mini pleats). Like Cara, to avoid a pretty overload, go grunge on the outfit plus-ones (think black lace-up heels, a studded belt and one badass smokey eye).

Try it on

For a festival-friendly take on the see-through thing, try this mesh number with ruched tiered hems and v rock’n’roll chain straps. Keep it casual by contrasting the black by layering over a cutesy white band tee.
