Love or Loathe? Sheer Tops

If you've visited your local mall or browsed an online boutique lately, you'll know that sheer clothing has become a bona fide, yet controversial summer trend.

While many people balk at the idea of wearing something sheer, I'm actually starting to love this trend. Now, I would never wear a see-through skirt or dress, but I think a nice sheer top is something I could actually pull off.

Plus, there are so many different styles out there right now it's hard not to find something to love. To see what I mean, check out the budget-friendly sheer tops below:

1. Peter Pan Collar Top- ASOS, $27.58

2. Lace Cape Top- Nasty Gal, $38.00

3. Descending Sun Top- ModCloth, $44.99

4. Polka Street Top- ModCloth, $32.99

5. Silk Kaleidoscope Top- Forever 21, $27.80

6. Feminine Peasant Blouse- Urban Outfitters, $59.00

Still not sure of your stance on sheer tops? Check out this outfit idea before you decide:

For this look, I chose a pretty printed sheer top, which contrasts nicely with the peach-colored shorts. Since the top is see through, wear a full-coverage lace bra underneath. If you're not up for showing off your undergarments, you can wear a lacy cami for the same effect. Add some cool snake print sandals, then accessorize with an oversized wristwatch. For a finishing touch, add unique rings, like the ones above.

So, would you ever wear a sheer top? Is it too racy or right up your alley? I'd love to know what you think!
