Bumbrella by CiCi Soleil



  • New York Fashion Week was very exciting this year! And we were thrilled by the "sheer" trend, one of our favorites, as it made such an impact on the runways of major fashion designers this season. What I'm so excited to show you is how bumbrella allows you to take a sheer look from the runway and make it wearable without compromising the desired effect.  So, if you still want to rock that sheer trend but want a little more coverage, here is how you can do it! Below are some of our favorites!

    Oscar de la Renta
     | RTW SP 2016
    This sheer beauty is from Oscar de la Renta. It reminds us of a midnight garden glowing by the moonlight. The sheer dark layers seem to evoke shadows as they offset the skin tone for a lot of dimension. While we love the look, we need a bit more coverage for the real world. Pairing this dress with a nude bumbrella will make it seem like you're not wearing anything at all because of the clean lines and nude color. As a bonus, bumbrella's no-squeeze design and silky fabric makes you feel like you're not wearing anything at all!

    We love the drama in this Marchesa dress with the cut-out pattern on the skirt, exposing the legs. Here you can see the boy-short look underneath, which is perfect if you're young or uninhibited like a model or celebrity. But if you feel the need for a bit more coverage, then you could pair it with a black bumbrella to wear this look. And by the way, bumbrella is a mini slip, hitting you just at the upper/mid thigh, so you can still show a lot of sexy leg underneath but get coverage where you need it.

    Tadashi Shoji
     | Spring 2016
    It’s been said that Tadashi Shoji’s collection was inspired by the Japanese Zen Garden.  We see this in the harmony of the floral motifs and gorgeous sheer fabrics that remind us of water. Our nude bumbrella would work perfectly here, especially since the break between the sheer panel on the thigh to the embellished fabric is just about the length of the slip’s hem. And because bumbrella stays in place, no worries about trying to adjust a slip under a long dress - we all know how hard that is!

      Spring 2016
    This DKNY polka-dotted dress with peacoat-style buttons is super sheer, cool and modern.  While you get a bit of coverage on the front panel, wearing visible underwear underneath is mostly appropriate for the runway or again if you're uninhibited. Otherwise, you could wear this dress with a nude bumbrella if you want to keep the nude look OR wear it with a black bumbrella for a more graphic look.

    Carolina Herrera
     | Spring 2016
    This Carolina Herrera’s dress with it’s pretty pink sheer layers and flowing design, is modern and feminine, so we absolutly love it. There is something effortless between the belted look of the oversized shirt layer over the slip dress underneath, and we think that if this look was worn with our nude bumbrella you would get that extra layer of protection that you need when wearing irridescent sheer fabrics that reveal more under the sun.

     | Summer Spring 2016
    There is a real play of lace and skin in Givenchy’s collection. The soft femininity of this design still has an edgy feel to it. We love the clean tuxedo-like panel at the front with the scalloped edge of the lace at the hemline. Here they have paired it with a hipster panty, so unless you're comfortable with showing this much skin we think it would work wonderfully with the black bumbrella. The mini length of the bumbrella would not interfere with the cut-out hem on the sides, and still give you a bit more coverage where you need it.
