Sheer Beauties

As Spring (rather slowly) approaches I've found myself drawn to some beautiful silky chiffon blouses, and right now you will definitely find them all over the high street.
The first top pictured was actually a bargain find, bought on ebay for a few pounds and originally from H&M. It requires a little cami to be worn underneath as the neckline does come quite low but its very comfortable, and a lovely oversized fit. I wore this to my works party with skinny jeans and wedges.

The second patterned blouse is from Primark (would you believe they have some fantastic things in store at the moment) and initially is not something I would normally pick up. But the little house design and the gold buttons appealed to me and although I have not worn it yet (see tag still attached!) I'm waiting for a lovely warm spring day to really show it off. RRP £8.00

The third sleeveless blouse is also from Primark. I spotted this straight away as the colour is beautiful, described as 'Cinnamon' on the label. I rushed over and could only find size 20s left at first, until I spotted one single lonely size 10 shoved between cardigans at a different part of the shop and I grabbed it! They also do this in white. RRP £8.00
After visiting a Primark in Leeds shortly after I realised this must be a best seller as they only had the larger sizes left there too, and many girls panic searching through the rails for their size.
It comes with the same cute little gold buttons, which for me are just decoration as I pull it on over my head anyway.
I wore this on a night out in Leeds with black leather-look leggings and again my black wedges. Its super comfy but super sheer so if I was to wear this in the day time I would definitely have to wear something underneath. It looks much more expensive than it is and the material is really high quality too.

Some places selling beautiful sheer blouses at the moment include New Look, H&M, Topshop and Miss Selfridge but I think most high street stores will have their version. Long sleeved, sleeveless, batwing, etc etc...
I plan on buying more once warmer weather arrives!
