SPRING TRENDS : SHEER AND TRANSPARENT

Another trend for spring summer 2018 is transparency or sheerness. I am not very fond of this trend as I think it does not complement my figure as well as I like to dress modestly. However, from time to time, I can wear mesh in some way, but not completely sheer pieces unless I wear…
