Trend alert: the sheer top
Free The Nipple: 5 Celebs Who Dare to Bare.
How to go there...
To bare or not to bare? That is the question. While you’re figuring out your personal answer to that controversial question, Kendall Jenner has taken her stand. Taking her cues from designers like La Perla, Jenny Packham and Naeem Khan, Jenner takes sheer ensembles off the runway and into her daily jaunts.
But how did we get here?
The sexual revolution that spurred the ‘60s is making a comeback in the form of zee sheer top. YSL was the first genius to create the sheer organza blouse. Fast forward 60 years - alongside going topless at the beach and breastfeeding in public - and sheer tops are also a sign of support of Free the Nipple - a movement supporting gender equality. If men can prance around topless, why can’t women? Amiright? Women should have the choice to bare their erm, breasts in public (respectfully) too and all the famous people are onto it...
Celebs Who Dare to Bare
Fearless female celebs like Rihanna, Kim Kardashian West, Bella Hadid, Miley Cyrus and Kendall Jenner are setting the trend in all their nipple-baring glory. Here’s how they’re nailing it.
Kendall Jenner leads the celeb pack wearing the sheer top. Flaunting the shirt sans bra in Soho with BFF Bella Hadid, Jenner paired her braless orange tie top with high-waisted jeans and white boots.
P.S. Kendall is no stranger to going braless, earlier this year she wrote on her website/app "I really don’t see what the big deal is with going braless,” adding, “I think it’s cool and I really just don’t care! It’s sexy, it’s comfortable and I’m cool with my breasts. That’s it!"
Is it even a list without Kimmy K? Here, Kim flaunts her perky breasts in a silver translucent dress that almost belongs in the future. One can’t help but ask - is she wearing any underwear at all?
Rihanna was freeing the nips a long time before the movement became a thing. Whether it’s at in an all Swarovski gown at the CDFA Fashion Awards in 2014, at a concert, or in her latest video clip, @badgirlriri is all for going sheer and shameless.

If you’re a tad cautious about over-exposing, invest in a sporty-chic bra or lingerie bralette for maximum coverage - these will keep you on the right side of daring. And if you want more nipple-baring inspo click here for a fun read.
