It’s easy to add a touch of feminine romance to your wardrobe with a simple sheer white blouse. They’ve become a bit of a trend, so they’re getting easier to spot at most any clothing store, and lately in the clearance section – bonus! I found a really interesting sheer white blouse at an antique expo a few years ago, and it quickly became a wardrobe staple of mine. There are so many ways to wear it, and it works in with my wardrobe each season. From overalls to sundresses, check out how I give a ladylike touch to my outfits with the addition of a sheer white blouse.

Jumper 4 of 11
If you're more vintage-minded, like I tend to be, a sheer blouse works great under a mod jumper. It's a little more interesting than a standard blouse, and adds a sexy edge when worn with a lower cut jumper.
Vest & Trousers 5 of 11
When the weather cools down, warm up your look by layering a warm vest over your sheer blouse and wearing trousers too. Add a cozy beret, and your '70s inspired look is complete!

Black Bandeau Bra & Skirt 7 of 11
In the summertime, try out a more daring look with your sheer white blouse - wear it with a black bra! If you like to dress a bit more modestly, you can wear a black bandeau top over a nude bra, and pair it with a ladylike circle skirt that goes down to your knees. Prim and proper with a bit of an edge!
White Blazer & Pencil Skirt 8 of 11
For work, all you need to do is wear a camisole under your sheer blouse and pair it with a matching blazer. Pull on a brightly colored pencil skirt and happy shoes and you've become the bright spot in your office!
Crop Top & Trousers 9 of 11
If you recently bought a crop top for the Summer, but were too shy to wear it as-is, then this look is great for you! Though it's translucent, a sheer white blouse can be a way to make a crop top more modest. If you're still shy about skin showing under the white blouse, layer the sheer blouse and crop top over a camisole that matches the color of your trousers. It's a more seamless look, but still plenty interesting.
Over a Sundress 10 of 11
Shy about your shoulders? Or maybe you just want to give a fresh look to an old sundress. Wearing a sheer white blouse overtop of a sundress and tying it at the waist is a fun and feminine way to remix the two.
