If you're looking to enter a room and make a statement, a sheerblocked outfit is the way to go. With the sheer trend being everywhere lately, showing skin has never been easier (or more acceptable). On the runway, on celebs, and in real life, people are opting for bits of sheer to fill in cutouts. A patch of sheer provides more coverage than a normal cut-out and is totally on-trend.

When you try a sheerblocked look though, try to keep the cutouts simple and be sure to cover up the important bits. Otherwise, you might risk resembling Britney Spears circa the Toxic music video. And as flawless as Ms. Spears looked, the outfit should probably come with a "do not try this in public" warning attached.
