There’s just something about sheer, featherweight textiles that illustrates elegance in the most simple way. And with spring right around the corner, these sweet fabrics and frocks are certainly top of mind (along with the vision of gentle beams of sunlight making their way through sheer draperies…) Picture that special set of lace-y lingerie or a classic tulle wedding dress. Whether it’s colorful organza, soft lace, intricate embroidery or pastel-inspired tulle, in my book, sheer simplicity is a constant source of elegance and the perfect way to transition into spring.
