Have you ever wished you could wear your favorite swimsuit on a night out?

No? Neither have we. But Hollywood's latest red carpet trend might bring us one step closer to having to maintain bikini-ready bodies year-round.

Lea Michele, Erin Heatherton, Katy Perry and Naomie Harris have all adopted a daring new look, which layers sheer dresses over form-fitting bodysuits.

Heatherton showed off her mile-long legs in a navy Jason Wu dress with an embellished bodice. We love how her high collar helps balance the see-through lower half of her outfit.  

Those who aren't, say, a leggy Victoria's Secret model like Heatherton, might still find the trend a little daunting. Intricate fabrications on sheer dresses, such as Perry's busy lace number or Michele's striped dress, offer a slightly less transparent take thanks to textured fabrics that help hide any flaws.  

If you opt for an eye-catching bodysuit like Harris' sequined one, make sure to keep the diaphanous overlay as simple and sleek as possible.

Whatever you do, just make sure to balance your sheer dress and bodysuit pairing with long sleeves, high necklines or anything else to counter this leg-flaunting trend.
