Sheer Hell – the fashion crime of the year

Sheer_hell

This was going to be or ‘Wear or Die’ selection for you today. But as we looked at these two images, side by side in the depths of the Fashion Police cells, we realised that even although the rules of Wear or Die state that death is not an option, surely no one would want to live if it meant having to wear one of these “outfits”. So, instead, we’re posting them here purely as a reminder to us all – as if one is needed – that the whole “sheer” thing all the design houses have been trying to foist onto us lately? Really isn’t a good idea… and when it costs hundreds of pounds, like the shants above, it becomes positively criminal.

L-R : Trousers, £278 (!), Jo No Fui; Dress, £88, Antik Batik

    This just seems to be an exercise in how to make women with really good bodies look unattractive! These designs aren’t even sexy, and there’s nothing at all aesthetically pleasing about them.

    I’m with Arielle: these come off as sloppy, ill-fitting and completely impractical. I would like to know who the target market is.

    Does anyone actually buy these things?? (Apart from Liza Minelli, of course)
    I mean, so many things don’t look commercially viable at all, and yet they do exist and are probably sold to someone.

    I don’t get it. If the dress wasn’t a long-sleeved turtle neck, it could have passed for lingerie.
    Still, I really want to see this dubious style out in public.
