Now that it's fashion week, there's so much excitement surrounding what will be the next big trend in fashion. For the moment, however, spring 2012 trends are at the forefront of my mind. One such trend: sheer!

Karlie Kloss rocks a Lanvin dress with a sheer skirt. When it comes to sheer skirts, Helmut Lang's twisted sheer skirt in bright yellow is contemporary cool and what I like to call edgy sophisticated.

If you're not open to the idea of wearing a sheer skirt at all (even if it's way more wearable and covered-up than the Lanvin look pictured above), here are some ideas for you: think sexy sheer sleeves or an elegant dress with a diaphanous sheer neckline.

  • My absolute #1 pick is UNDER $50 and fabulous: ModCloth Chocolate Drops Dress with sheer sleeves. It's a pretty dress for the girl who loves fashion and wants to feel completely feminine and beautiful!
