We are in danger of sounding like a fashion column, but having perused the designer dictated 'trends' for 2013, we actually find ourselves liking several of them - quite a lot.
No doubt it's because we've lived through most of them already, being of a certain vintage, and everything comes full circle eventually. Like 'sheer', which we first wore with gay abandon in the 70s (when we were last a size 8 without the merest hint of midriff bulge or bingo wings).
Sheer is still one of the looks we love and although we're no longer brave enough nor young enough to embrace total transparency in the form of a see-through dress any time soon, we'll certainly be sporting see-through sleeves and bare-all blouses (the latter only under cover of cardigan).
Sheer chiffon and lace are such delightfully feminine fabrics which can be worn by the demure as well as the daring with a bit of help from modesty preserving camisoles, cardis, shrugs and jackets.
So here are some examples of sheer fashion indulgence from our catalogue for you to wear any which way you dare!
