Think of the phrase ‘timeless fashion’. Did naked dresses pop into your head? We’d wager to say no, and yet barely-there dresses have been in the fashion lexicon for ages.
From Marilyn Monroe’s glittering nude dress (recently re-worn by Kim Kardashian at this year’s Met Gala) to Carrie Bradshaw’s naked dress from when she went on a date with Sex and the City to the slew of naked dresses now gracing red carpets on the likes of Megan Fox and Rihanna, there’s no denying the staying power that barely-there frocks have on pop fashion.
More recently, various naked dresses were also spotted on Bella Hadid, Beyoncé, and Park Soo-Joo. Hey, as Queen B put it best: if you’ve got it, flaunt it.
So in the spirit of helping you flaunt it, here are some of our fave naked dresses that range from boardwalk-chic to ballroom-ready, and what you’ll need to wear them.
