Modest Monday: How to Wear a Sheer Top

When I was a young lady  (mind you I am still young because I am only 27!), I was often told not to wear anything sheer because it was un modest and lady like. This statement was particular told to me to avoid sheer tops because of my apparent curves. But has I got older I realized that a sheer top can still be modest if worn correctly. 



The first and obvious thing to do when wearing a sheer top is to simply wear a tank or camisole underneath it. But you can choose a tank that is a color that matches with your sheer top

 or one that just simply color coordinates with it.

You could try a modified sheer top that is just sheer in the arms and chest. A printed chiffon top also helps keep  your look modest.

15 Ways to Wear Sheer Without Feeling Overexposed



Other ways to wear a sheer top:



1. Layer it with a crew neck top over it. This works well with button up long sleeve  blouses. 

2. Place a sleeveless dress over the sheer top (bonus* a stripe dress looks very beautiful under a chiffon top)

3. Place a vest over it.

4. Layer it with a crop top


5. Place a v neck dress over the top.
