Secret Weapon: Sheer Sleeves

There's something so seductive about sheer, long sleeves. The obvious reason is that they suggestively hint at the body underneath, but I also think it's because the semi-transparency of the fabric allows an onlooker to see how the garment moves with the body and interacts with it in a way an opaque material does not. There's something sensual about watching the whisper-light fabric graze the body just so, of skin revealed, but not in an overtly sexual manner, and veiled in a way that minimizes flaws. Even a chubby arm dimpled with cellulite can appear younger, smoother, and more toned.

This lovely dress by Dolan is the perfect way to test that theory. Shirred Neck Dress in Navy, $253 @ Revolve.
