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

The last post 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, feedback from people everywhere 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 that example was an interpretation of the see through fashion trend exactly as you’d see it on the runway, this 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?”
