As we reported a few months ago, this spring, lingerie-inspired clothing is all the rage. This includes sheer and see-through fabrics that are being incorporated into tops, dresses, and more! Many designers featured loose, sheer fabrics in their designs for this spring, but now the trend has officially hit the mainstream - I've been noticing sheer pieces appearing all over campus.

Urban Outfitters

Urban Outfitters' sheer and see-through items give a more noir type vibe. Most of the items they have are dark and/or gray, which is great if your aesthetic is on the darker side.
