The sheer 'see through dress' evolution - 90's

Posted on January 30 2016

We love everything mesh at One Boutique - it's perfect for layering in the winter, beach cover-up in the Summer, and for all occasions inbetween.

The trend isn't exactly new either - it's been around for decades with some of our favourite supermodels and celebrities wearing sheer pieces in some iconic photographs. As much as Rihanna might have pushed it up to a whole new level, she's not the first - and we've documented some of the juiciest outfits for your inspiration. 

1. Rose McGowan - 1998 MTV Movie Awards

Rose McGowan MTV Movie Awards 1998 Sheer Mesh Dress - One Boutique Blog

Beyond 'see through' - this sparkly piece doesn't seem to actually have a back. We love the nod to the cowl neckline , and the very 90's leopard print thong to 'co-ordinate' with Manson' suit. 

2. Jane Birkin - 1969

 Jane Birkin 1969 Transparent See Through Mesh Dress - One Boutique Blog

One of the earliest examples of the transparent mesh dress, Jane Birkin wears a mini dress with on trend bell sleeves and a tiny pair of black boy shorts. The woman behind the luxurious and famous 'Birkin Bag' - designed off the back of a conversation between Birkin and the head of Hermes, Jean Louis-Dumas

3. Kate Moss wearing Liza Bruce - 1993 Elite Look of the Year Party

 Kate Moss in Liza Bruce 1993 Sheer See Through Dress - One Boutique Blog

This look on Kate Moss is definitely one of our favourites. A strappy midi dress in completely see through, textured fabric. Naomi Campbell pictured on her left is also wearing a completely see through piece.  We love the minimalism of the piece, and the spaghetti straps.
