Summer fashion isn’t always bright colours and pretty florals. One of the most prominent — but polarizing — looks of the summer is actually a darker one. More and more stars such as Jennifer Lopez, Kate Hudson, Cara Delevigne and Kim Kardashian have been seen wearing sheer black looks at summer red carpet events. There’s no doubt that these stars’ unbelievable bodies quash concerns that these sheer looks might not be flattering — can anyone really argue with J-Lo’s abs? — but it’s questionable whether sheer black really works with summer style. Agree or disagree? Sound off with your thoughts on these looks in the comments below!
J-Lo is perhaps the most body-confident star we have around, and for good reason: she is absolutely killing it in this sheer, cut-out black dress. She’s pictured here at her 46th birthday party — yes, 46th! — in a Bao Tranchi dress.
Like J-Lo, Kate Hudson never shies away from showing off her curves. Not only is this dress that she wore to Leonardo DiCaprio Foundation event in Saint-Tropez, France super sheer, but it also is intricately embellished with sequins.
Also at Leonardo DiCaprio’s event — and in a similar look, too — is Michelle Rodriguez, sporting floral detailing on her sheer gown.
Like Michelle, Cara’s sheer black look is topped up with pretty florals — but vibrant, colourful ones instead. Cara is pictured here at the Paper Towns premiere in Toronto.
Last but not least is Kim Kardashian, whose style is always sure to get us talking. Kim’s wearing a sheer maternity look designed by one of her and her family’s go-to’s: Balmain.
