There are so many skin-baring trends for 2021, it’s as if the fashion gods forget that we’ve been on a quarantine diet for over a year! One of the most revealing trends is the sheer maxi skirts seen on every runway from Acne Studios to Emilio Pucci. Soon, you’ll be seeing them on every influencer too. A sheer skirt like these pastel ones create a feminine and romantic look that can be toughened up with chunky trainers for an athleisure feel or teamed with an appropriate heel for an evening look.
