How to Wear a Sheer Top Like It’s No Big Deal

It may seem like the sheer-shirt-over-bralet combination is something that only celebrities and off-duty models can pull off. Not so! It’s a casual, cool look that can easily be deployed as a dressier weekend look — especially if the weather stays this hot through fall.

Step 1: Find a seamless bralette or cropped tank. It’s important that there aren’t any embellishments (lest you snag your sheer sweater), patterns, or colors on the bra, because all these make this look seem like more of a concerted effort for attention.

It should also be a long-line bra, which means it covers a little more of the rib cage underneath the underwire — you’ll want this because it’s a little more modest and makes the look appear more intentional than just slapping on any old Victoria’s Secret bra underneath. Try one with thin straps that look nothing like normal elastic bra straps.

Step 2: Slip on a sheer top or gauzy sweater.

Step 3: When it gets colder, add a dark blazer on top. You can also push up your jacket’s sleeves to reveal the sweater’s sleeves at the wrist, for a more styled look.

My Reflection

My Reflection

This site is a tribute to Buddhism. Buddhism has given me a tremendous inspiration to be who and where I am today. Although I came to America at a very young age, however, I never once forget who I am and where I came from. One thing I know for sure is I was born as a Buddhist, live as a Buddhist and will leave this earth as a Buddhist. I do not believe in superstition. I only believe in karma.

Tipitaka: The pali canon (Readings in Theravada Buddhism). A vast body of literature in English translation the texts add up to several thousand printed pages. Most -- but not all -- of the Canon has already been published in English over the years. Although only a small fraction of these texts are available here at Access to Insight, this collection can nonetheless be a very good place to start.
