Trend Report: Cut it Out! (But Keep it Sheer)

By  January 08, 2013

We’re completely inspired by Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso’s penchant for sheer paneling and cut outs. When she rocked this Three Floor dress yesterday at the WWD conference in New York, we gave her major insta-props. Cut out aren’t always work or daytime appropriate, which is why we love sheer paneling. If you don’t feel like showing skin you can layer with a tank or pair it with a high waisted skirt or pants. Paneling becomes work-friendly with an opaque cami layered underneath, and the texture still looks fab even if your skin isn’t showing through. J’adore!
