‘Sheer’ Genius at Paris Fashion Week SS22
As Fashion Month comes to a close in Paris this week, we’re taking a look at some of the hottest trends from the new Spring/Summer 2022 collections. Since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic in March 2020, traditional fashion shows have been put on pause. And after months of awaited anticipation - this year’s momentous occasion did not disappoint.
From runway looks, to celeb sightings, to street-style-standouts, we’re giving you the inside scoop on the hottest trends of SS22. And, we can confirm one thing for sure - the Devil does indeed wear Prada (the Monolith Boots to be exact).
Other notable street style trends included lots of long coats, high boots, matching skirt sets, and funky patterns. But on the runway, one style stood out to us in particular: sheer looks.
In this article, we’re going to show you some of the most iconic sheer looks from Paris Fashion Week SS22, and how you can style your own sheer tops with B-Six Nippie Covers.
Sheer Runway Looks
Fendi’s September Fashion Show in Milan kick started this season’s sheer movement for SS22, turning heads with colorful patterned dresses and boss-energy pantsuits over cheeky mesh bralettes. Artistic Director Kim Jones was inspired by 70’s disco glamour creating these fun, empowering, and playfully liberating looks. "Our woman has let loose a bit — she’s going out, dressing up. We’ve all been locked away for so long that I think that’s what we all need right now," said Jones.
And, we couldn’t agree with him more!
The Givenchy SS22 Collection was nothing short of spectacular. Creative Director Matthew M. Williams balances femininity, sophistication, and edginess in this dreamy and transparent line. Extravagant as always, Givenchy gave us ruffles, rhinestones, and rebellious raw edges.
Oh, and we’re still drooling over that magical lavender masterpiece.
Celeb Sheer Moments
Equally as unforgettable as those fabulous runway looks were the show stopping celebrity outfits sitting front row. From musical artists, to actresses, to professional athletes, Paris Fashion Week is always lined with A-listers donning designer pieces just as stylish as the models on the runway.
This year was nothing short of star-studded in the City of Lights, and as I’m sure you’ve already guessed… Many of them were dressed in fabulous sheer looks.
BLACKPINK’s Rosé stole the show at Saint Laurent which took place at the Eiffel Tower. Rosé is 1 of 4 members in the sensational K-pop girl group BLACKPINK. Her other bandmates were also seen in attendance during Paris Fashion Week, at Dior, Chanel, and Miu Miu. Rosé stunned in this sheer black chiffon mini dress with chic knee-high leather boots. Rosé is a Saint Laurent global ambassador and also recently wowed fans in another LBD at the Met Gala.
Actress Demi Moore made headlines at the Stella McCartney show sporting a plunging jumpsuit with mesh paneling. Moore is no stranger to Paris Fashion Week, as she even walked in the Fendi Fashion show last winter. We love her sporty see-through look, and think our B-Six Stylin’ Tape would be the perfect tool to keep a top like that securely in place!
Cardi B has delivered countless stunning and eccentric looks in Paris this week. Is anyone surprised? From head-to-toe bright green, to studded shoulders, to gold-plated breasts, she’s done it all. But, we had to highlight this fierce yet elegant Thierry Mugler number for the gorgeous sheer skirt.
How to Wear Sheer Tops
Even though many of us won’t be wearing these Avant Garde runway looks in our day-to-day life, surely they will be inspiring this upcoming season’s fashion trends. And, with that, we will be seeing lots of sheer tops, dresses, and bralettes.
You may be thinking, how would I cover my nipples in a sheer top?
And we’ve got you covered - literally.
We know that a typical underwire bra doesn’t always work in these situations, which is why we’ve created nipple covers for any type of coverage you may need. All of our Nippies come in two different sizes for best coverage.
- Nippies Skin is the ultimate nipple cover for the smoothest coverage possible. Choose between three different nude color options, two different sizes, and if you want adhesion for extra security. We recommend wearing these under tighter, more form-fitting sheer tops or dresses, like the rainbow Fendi dress shown above.
- Make a fashion statement with Nippies Re-Style. These reusable Nippies come in bold shapes, patterns and textures for coverage that looks as beautiful as it feels. From hearts and crosses, to sparkles and lace, we’re sure you’ll find the right pair to go with your outfit. Make a statement by wearing these Nippies under a sheer bralette or see-through top, inspired by Givenchy, of course.
As the saying goes, sometimes the best things in life are worth waiting for - and we think Paris Fashion Week SS22 was well worth the wait. Like many of the events that are taking place again with some sense of normalcy after the past year and a half, we’re excited to celebrate the art and fashion that we so desperately longed for. And, don’t forget to add a new sheer outfit to your Spring/Summer 2022 wardrobe!
