Vintage Must Have: Sheer Blouse

Summer is in full swing, and that means it’s hot, hot, hot!  Some of my favorite summer staples are my sheer blouses that I have acquired.  Often made of nylon, sheer blouses are some of the best ways to beat the heat while also looking elegant and refined.

But remember ladies, slips are quite required when wearing a sheer blouse! I like wearing a colored slip under mine to add a bit of color and contrast.  Read more on slips in this post!

The most common design for sheer blouses is the pleated front look that I have showcased here, however, in the below Etsy treasury you can see there is a wide variety of cuts and styles.

For those new to the sheer blouse scene, I’ve compiled an Etsy treasury to showcase a selection of blouses.  I have focused mainly on ones from the 1930s through the 1960s.

Stay cool out there!

  1. You look wonderful! Love the idea of wearing a beautiful coloured slip beneath a sheer blouse. Should I ever feel brave enough to sport one, I’ll definitely remember that great idea.

  2. You are truly beautiful! I am so envious of your look and your slender build. It is so very hard to find vintage clothing in plus sizes, but I won’t give up!

  3. Thanks for sharing your treasury, I am considering one of the baby blue blouses- it’s in my heart list on etsy. You look lovely in that cream sheer blouse, and I love that heart bracelet!

  4. I always a had a “You can see my underwear! Oh NO!” aversion to sheer blouses in high school, but since then, I’ve really gotten into the contrasting-slip, sheer blouse bandwagon. It’s so delicate and sweet, yet sexy at the same time. I always have to say to myself you’re no less “uncovered” than if you were wearing a strappy dress, PLUS there’s a whole shirt over it….love the treasury. I’ll have to check out your post on slips next! 🙂
