Adriana Lima + sheer trend = demure yet sexy

We’ve seen many manifestations of the sheer trend in 2008; some gorgeous, some questionable, and some downright shocking (if you want to see a list of them all, visit the main sheer trend article). Adriana Lima managed to make a sheer dress demure, yet still sexy, in a recent television appearance promoting Victoria’s Secret.

Adriana’s dress combines a white slip with a sheer floral-print overlay in soft pastel colours. She also worked in one of 2008-2009′s shoe trends, a trend we’ve termed ‘Mary-Jane with a Twist’ – the double-buckled peep-toe Mary-Jane.

Some people's wardrobes are about a small selection of pieces that all fit within one aesthetic - Tania Braukamper isn't such a person.

And it's a theory that she works into her writing for, where she serves as the publication's Editor.
