Sheer dresses and other puzzling crimes of fashion

We’re not sure whether it’s the better weather, or simply better behaviour in the fashion world, but when we sat down to put together this week’s roundup of Fashion Crimes, we were pleasantly surprised to find that there wasn’t really much we needed to arrest. Move along folks, nothing to see here…

Well, actually, that’s not quite true. There’s actually quite a lot to see on this model:

“dress”, $65

We’ve always wondered what the purpose of “dresses” that are completely transparent is, and how people are expected to wear them, so we were pleased to see that Karmaloop had cleared that little mystery up for is in the product description of this piece:

“This complete netted dress will pair perfectly with those neon bandeaus and high waisted shorts you’ve been hoarding.”

Well, THAT makes sense. You HAVE all been hoarding neon bandeaus and high-waisted shorts, haven’t you? And if not, what on earth have you been doing with your money?

Like the look of the transparent mesh, but worried it won’t be much use in the rain? Don’t worry, here’s a waterproof option for you:

transparent dress with bikini

Waterproof “dress”, £94

This is a little more expensive at £94, but totally worth it, we’re sure you’ll agree. The emperor would LOVE it, for instance.  And seriously, if we had a penny for every time we’ve found ourselves thinking, “If only we had a completely transparent dress to wear right now,” we’d be… really, really poor.

What about people who want to remain covered up, but just LOOK like they’re naked, though? Well…

cherry sweater

Sonia by Sonia Rykiel Cherry Intarsia Knitted Sweater, $201

This will only make you look naked if you have a similar skintone to the model, of course, but even if you don’t, damn, but that has to be the most unfortunate placement of cherries we’ve seen. Sonia Rykiel HAS to have been messing with us here, no?

Would you wear any of these, or do you consider them to be crimes of fashion? Drop us a comment, and enjoy your weekend!
