The sheer dress trend has influenced the sartorial sphere beyond comprehension over the last few years,.
'Naked dressing’ - pioneered early on by the likes of Cher and Kate Moss - has dominated street style, red carpet and runway agendas, with influencers and fashionistas alike donning daring transparent outfits for absolutely any occasion.
Preparing us for the upcoming autumn/winter season, quirky fashion muse Mia Regan has put her own twist on the beloved look, with a styling hack we guarantee will be adopted by cool-girls everywhere this season.
The model, who walked in Holzweiler’s show the day before, stepped out at KNWLS’ show on Sunday wearing a sheer bodycon dress, layered with a brown leather jacket and paired with the funkiest suede heeled mules from the brand.
If fashionistas are brave enough to eschew a base layer underneath sheer outfits, usually a thong or briefs are left on show. But Mia opted to wear boxer shorts underneath instead, giving visible lingerie a more demure feel (and extra material means extra warmth for winter - very clever, Mia).
Visibly wearing boxer shorts appeared on our radars during the SS23 fashion shows, as Miuccia Prada sent models down the runway for Miu Miu wearing glittery sheer skirts with matching coloured shorts underneath. Some also wore them peeking above the waistband of the label’s signature mini skirts.
Also, wearing boxer shorts as outerwear shorts was a huge influencer-led trend this summer, with the hashtag #boxershorts amassing over 60m views on TikTok.
Providing yet another cool way to wear sheer, at Paco Rabanne’s LFW party last week, Mia wore a high-neck sleeveless leather top, paired with a sheer lace skirt complete with leather belts across the thighs and a bizarre statement ruffle trim.
Mia is Gen Z’s answer to Alexa Chung and we are utterly obsessed.
