Layering: Sheer Lace Up Top & Turtleneck

Half body shot of outfit with black sheer lace up top over white turtleneck with jeans.
Although they are one of the top trends this year, sheer and lace up tops were not something I thought would ever look decent on me. Maybe I’m a bit modest, or maybe it’s just old age, but I didn’t think I could pull it off until now. This sheer lace up top has been in my closet for years. It was a gift and I never liked the look of it until I paired it with this turtleneck. The sheerness is way too revealing (for me anyway) to wear just a bra or crop top underneath. It needed something more. Once I added the turtleneck, I loved it! I think it gives it a modest and yet modern feel. What do you think of this look? Would you layer a sheer top over a turtleneck?

  5. I don't feel like wearing sheer tops with just a bra as well, so I use my maternity tank tops. They are very basic, but cover enough to make me feel comfortable.

  17. I love lace and sheer any day any time and you are not old its just your sense of style and its okay not to be comfortable. I love the layering which makes it easier for you or anyone who is not comfortable to wear these items alone to be able to actually wear them. Great styling dear.

  18. this was paired off really great. I wouldn't be comfortable either with wearing that top alone and would have done exactly what you did. looks like you had a good time out.

  26. I'm the same I would never wear a top like this as I would think it's too sheer and not really appropriate for my lifestyle but layering it is a clever idea and makes it so wearable. You have me thinking now :)

  28. Actually, maybe it would look good with a black bandeau underneath? What do you think?

  33. It's nice that you added the turtleneck to make the top day appropriate. I do the same when I have "revealing" pieces.

  41. This is such a lovely pairing, Lili, I love how you layered your turtleneck under the laced up shirt, so creative! I love the contrast that it creates, I just may need to try this out, once I purchase a top like this. Thanks so much for sharing and I hope you have a wonderful week ahead, beautiful!
