Bodysuits will keep sheer delightful

December 02, 1993|By Anne-Marie Schiro | Anne-Marie Schiro,New York Times News Service

Many women may be reluctant to wear them, but sheer clothes show no signs of fading away.

Sheerness abounds in the resort and holiday duds coming into )) stores now and was rife on the runways for spring.

But not to worry.

There are many ways to wear see-through fashions without offending modesty -- or catching a chill.

Under sheer black dresses and tunics, Joan Kaner, the fashion director of Neiman Marcus, wears a black spandex exercise unitard that provides coverage but looks sleek.

As an alternative, she suggests a flesh-colored bodysuit in an opaque satiny jersey.

Under pale spring clothes, Nicole Fischelis, the fashion director of Saks Fifth Avenue, likes a white T-shirt or tank cut like men's underwear for daytime.

For evening, it would be a camisole or bodysuit of stretch lace or satin, or a silver bodysuit.

"Any of these would be very interesting and very modern," she said.
