Are you ready for Valentine’s Day? If not, here’s the perfect excuse to update your Little Black Dress!

This year, I really love the sheer trend. When done right, it’s both subtle and sexy. The placement of sheer panels is the key.

Sheer torsos, navel revealing plunging necklines, sheer side panels that expose the side from neck to thigh are all no-no’s in my book. Unless you are Victoria Beckham or Kate Moss, most of us really can’t pull off these dramatic looks!

Above a few suggestions to get you started. I also found some gorgeous options at Nordstroms  including a few with sheer peek-a-boo hems and cuts outs, plus one truly stunning Tahari creation and even a few at Kohl’s.

Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone!
