There are many different trends this season, but certainly this is one that we all have seen… “transparencies“. Used in accessories made of plastic or jewelry made from plexiglass, clothing made with gauze, mesh or other materials that give this effect.

This season I also joined the transparency trend, aside from being aesthetically interesting, it gives the feeling of freshness and lightness. It’s very easy to convert your classic black pants in to a garment much more “IN” and modern.

Materials:

  • Classic black pants (if you don’t have you can take advantage of sales discounts at the moment)
  • Scissors
  • Black chiffon (better not to use organza, since it doesn’t have good fall)
  • Pins
  • Chalk mark
  • Ruler

7. Overlock the seams to finish (if you don’t have an overlock, just zig-zag the stitches on your sewing machine)
