For her appearance on “The Late Show” in New York on Wednesday, Katharine McPhee wowed fans wearing a ruffled, body-hugging sheer dress featuring a dainty floral pattern that flaunted her famous assets. Along with matching pink pumps to elongate her figure and a sun kissed-hued lob haircut, the 30-year-old singer and former “American Idol” contestant kept it simple, yet seductive.
While the sheer look is a daring one, stylists insists anyone can rock this coveted style by tastefully emphasizing one’s best features.

“Sheer fabrics are an ideal way to enhance your figure for nighttime looks,” says style expert Cecelia Myers. “A blouse with sheer sleeves is a great way to show your arms even if they aren’t like Michelle Obama’s. One of my favorite looks is a lace skirt where the liner stops just a few inches before the hem. It allows your legs to be a bit more visible without trying too hard. If you’re worried about it being too revealing, pair some opaque tights with the skirt.”
“Sheer is for everyone,” adds Sharon Graubard of Stylesight. “A woman who is not comfortable showing her midriff can still wear sheer sleeves, illusion necklines, insets at the shoulder, or a button-up over a tank top … Just a wide border of sheer at a skirt hem, or sheer insets on a pleated skirt, suggests lingerie and has a sexy but not-overexposed effect.”
