When it comes to showing skin, a little bit goes a long way. It's no wonder sheer panels have appeared on runways season after season—the flash of flesh plays up sex appeal with a touch of mystery. Also see crochet-knit dresses, which work perfectly as a stylish cover-up on the beach.

Lately, stars have been reinterpreting the summery style for fall by choosing the look in darker colors.

On the conservative end of the spectrum we have Kate Middleton, who chose a frock with a woven pattern—a welcome upgrade to the plain LBD.
