Just take a look at the professionals to get an idea of how to wear it.

Here the designers have playfully combined a mixture of fluid and sheer feel fabrics to create a similar effect.

Starting with the creations of Emilio Pucci and Céline, who opted for an all white look… we can see they used all sorts of shiny, transparent or glossy materials to create defined yet wearable layers.
