Sheer fabric and confidence are an inseparable combination when it comes to collections like Akris’ for spring / summer 2013. Off the runway you could make see-through dresses modest with slips or other opaque under-layers, but let’s face it: that could also ruin the lines, and the hard-hitting effect, of the garments.
For those sans buckets of confidence (and bean-pole figures) there were options. The Paris fashion week (PFW) runway had beautiful tailoring, flowing printed silk, and rich spring leathers to boot. For those wanting the sexiness without the sheer, plunging necklines had the same high-impact sexiness without baring too much skin.
