I'm glad to see that the sheer trend is back to the 2012 spring fashion scene. The best part is that the present style is not limited to the runways and the celebs, but is wearable by the everyday woman. Fashionistas who felt intimidated about going completely sheer now have the option to play with cutouts, sleeves and panels -- yes, nothing too audacious, but something fun and stylish. Hey, flaunting that hint of skin is OK. So make the most of your prerogative and incorporate sheers with with style. Excited?
