About this Article

An unexpected flash of skin under a sheer fabric can be sexy and sophisticated on a date, at a party, even in the office. But with anything much more than a sliver, it's easy to cross the too-much-of-a-good-thing line. And there's no taking it back. Just ask Tom Mora, women's design director at J. Crew, who's created sheer beach cover-ups stylish and elegant enough to be worn as tops and dresses. But, he says, wearer beware: "You should wear a slip, or a cami and brief. They are great pieces but their real intent is for a swimsuit to be underneath."
