The sheer trend is basically everywhere—we blame you, Kardashians—but some people aren't on board with buying clothes that are meant to be see-through. I mean, it's hardly like you can rock up to work with your bra on show, or your nipples, for that matter, so is there much point spending cash on clothes that you can only wear for certain nipple-approved situations?
If Instagram is to be believed, the answer to that question is "no!" with handy DIYers finding another ingenious way to wear the trend without buying anything new.
And all you need to do it is a pair of stockings.
Tights as tops are trending on Instagram, thanks to dancers originally coming up with the clever way to recycle tights into cute, sheer crop tops.
Of course, you might want to select a pair that isn't all holey and stuff because that might not look great—and there is the whole seam up the middle situation that would be good to avoid—but if you pick the right pair, you could nail this look with just a pair of scissors.
