Risque style: the blink-and-you’ll-miss-it edition

Yesterday we asked if society is ready for (or at least trending towards) street style that verges on nudity. And the answer seems to be in the affirmative. For the most part the comments left across Fashionising.com and our Facebook page were positive, with the few detractors taking anything but a puritanical approach – instead opting for an argument that tended towards the notion that more sensuality is to be found in a look that hints, as opposed to outright reveals.

While yesterday’s example was an interpretation of the see through fashion trend exactly as you’d see it on the runway, today’s is far subtler. While the sheer blouse is still revealing, its red and purple hues give it a pink tonality, and therefore a “blink and you’ll miss it” sensuality.

And that difference begs a new question and retains the old; do those who don’t like the more revealing look find issue with this subtler interpretation? And “so long as the wearer feels confident in it, does it matter?”

This particular look was snapped in Paris by TrendyCrew.

Having flown over 590,000 kilometres in a single year (2012), he’s done much to push the boundaries of a fashioniser, always looking to fold one extra Tom Ford suit into his set of Samsonite cases and for one extra occasion to tie a tie for. As much an editor-at-large as he is Fashionising.com’s Editor-in-chief, when he's not travelling to all the fashion weeks his passports will allow him to, Daniel works on guiding this publication’s editorial and trend views. He is one of Fashionising.com’s co-founders.
