Extreme transparency: are you ready?


The trend was seen on the catwalks but we still don't know how accepted it will be in real life. Although the beach seems like a good place to start.


When protesters took to the streets last June, denouncing the annulment of Roe v.

Wade, fashion was understandably the last thing on anyone's mind.

However, the corporeal reverberated through the fashion world a few months later, with spring 2023 collections from Rick Owens to Prada featuring sheer, nipple-baring looks that drew attention to the female form.

The original Free the Nipple movement grew out of the 2013 film of the same name by activist and filmmaker Lina Esco. It began as a topless protest to call attention to the hypocritical censorship surrounding the female nipple – post even a glimpse could get a user censored (or even banned) on some social networks, while uploading an image of one identified as sticking to the body simply leaves much less to the imagination.

“Spring 2023 felt like the right time to deepen this reverence for the female body,” says LaQuan Smith, whose show included veil-like dresses and tracing-paper-thin silk blouses.

“Celebrating the female form through clothing is a way for the wearer to reclaim her power and freedom.

It is very topical at this time when women are fighting for their rights.”

“There's a sense of women reclaiming their bodies,” says designer Tory Burch, who sent models (including trailblazer Emily Ratajkowski) down the runway in sheer knit tops paired with sheer lace bralettes.

"Women don't want to feel restricted and aren't interested in hiding or contouring their natural shape," she says.

"It's sexy, from a decidedly feminine point of view."


Actress Florence Pugh was also in on the trend, acknowledging on Instagram that there was "no way there wasn't a comment about it" after wearing a sheer Valentino gown to the house's fall 2022 couture show in Rome.

Allison Janney and Olivia Wilde have also recently jumped on the bandwagon, proving that it's not just for Gen Z. (“We have this kind of puritanical perspective on nipples,” Wilde once said during an interview. “I think it's really silly". )

But it remains to be seen if she'll make the transition from runway to everyday life, and if Everywoman will find the concept as powerful as Wilde has.

“For something to really become fashionable, it has to be worn,” says Zachary.

"Or in the case of the nipple, uncover."
