As the years have gone by it seems that dresses and skirts have gotten shorter and shorter, making what used to be a scandalous amount of leg appear to be the norm. But as the age old saying goes: what goes up, must come down. This season, runways were flooded with mid-length to floor grazing skirts. However as well know when trying to beat the heat, the last thing we need is a long skirt to bring us down; no matter how chic! However I've spotted a happy medium: sheer skirts. These transparent garments are the sauciest way to update lengthy skirts. Now you flaunt your summer tans and maintain a hint of mystery. With celebrities and fashion shows already sporting the look, I have a feeling this is going to be one hot new trend. Will you be rocking a long sheer skirt for the Spring/Summer season?
