The gauzy fabric usually conjures up images of frothy tutu skirts, bridal wear and the arty-pretty cult of Molly Goddard. What’s different this season is that it’s being used on more practical, effortless pieces. Think a turtleneck bodysuit (Marc Jacobs), vest top (Dries Van Noten) and classic tee (Coach 1941) – all perfect for layering and adding visual interest to any outfit minus the frills.
