Our favourite style stars can’t get enough of Burberry Prorsum’s S/S 14 runway collection and, to be honest, we’re not the least bit surprised! The fashion house turned heads last year with its partially lined lace dresses and separates which, in addition to being absolutely stunning, also proved highly adaptable for both daytime and nighttime dressing.
Lucky for us, countless other brands have made the trend available and highly appealing as well, and with so many shop-able styles, we are officially ready to jump on the bandwagon. Click through for five ways to style the trend, and to shop some of our favourite pieces.

Seen here at Harvey Weinstein's pre-BAFTA dinner this February, Naomie Harris stunned in this cool-coloured cocktail dress (similar here). We love the way the to-the-ankle hemline balances the see-through design.
