Hot off the runway, one of the looks that has been just about everywhere is translucency! Now this look is definitely difficult to pull off and has the risk of looking, well, risqué.

The SS16 runways were full of translucent pieces ranging from completely transparent to designers like Iris Van Herpen mimicking the sheer look by using skin toned fabrics as their garments’ bases. Although, many designers such as Valentino opted for a more flowing, softer silhouette with darker colours to achieve a romantic feel.

Both, the edgy and romantic styles, have filtered down to the glamorous red carpet and casual streetwear. Ellie Goulding looks fabulous in her heavily embellished ensemble.
