Minute 16: We love sheer tops -- but not when celebrities forget to wear something underneath. | Sonia Rykiel

By definition, trends are fleeting. They're ephemeral. And each day we see our fair share of looks we'd like to remove from our sartorial lexicon. So join us, each week, as we analyze a trend that's had its 15 minutes of fame. These looks are well into their Minute 16, folks. It's time to usher them toward stage left.

The Trend: Sheer fabric is awesome. Those tiny little microscopic holes let air in and out, giving skin much needed breathing room on hot days. But when you think about all of the celebrities who show up at red carpet events wearing see-through dresses and gowns -- sometimes with nothing underneath -- we have to wonder: is Hollywood that hot?

Chief Offenders: Recently, ex-Pussycat Doll Melody Thornton was spotted feeling the breeze. The star arrived at the ELLE Women in Music event donning a see-through beige gown accenting her nipples and bum cheeks. Other stars who have joined in on the so-called barely there trend include Madonna, Katy Perry and Rihanna.

What's Wrong With It: Sheer isn't the problem. We love the idea of light see-through fabrics with bras underneath as a fashion statement. But when you start forgetting your underwear on purpose, the look is no longer trendy -- it's trashy. How can we look at your actual outfit if we're constantly distracted by your chest?

May We Suggest: If you love airy outfits or are just looking for some space to breathe, here are some ideas: The bralette can be paired with pants, maxi skirts and even shorts to show off your midriff and will add a little fun to your spring wardrobe. Cut-outs are also popular this spring on peplum dresses and pleated or backless tops. And if you're looking for a way to show off your favourite bra colour, try a lace or thick-strapped bra paired with a black or white sheer blouse.

What do you think? Should celebrities just remember to wear undergarments? Let us know in the comments below or on Twitter @HuffPostCaStyle.
