At first thought, wearing a bra as a top sounds like a reprehensible fashion crime – something you’re likely only to see on the most attention-seeking popstar at a music awards show. However, despite first impressions, this sultry trend is uniquely chic. When worn properly and discreetly, this is less overt and surprisingly elegant.
The key is to style it as part of a specific ensemble, with a shirt loosely buttoned, a wrap top falling open or a blazer with the top button undone. This is not a total exposure scenario.
Take style notes from the celebrities above and work with the shopping equations below. It might just be your new look.
The lacy Pastels
For a long lunch or a stylish event, a pop of pastel from beneath a broderie shirt is pretty personified. Wear unbuttoned to half way down.
Black on black
A racy lacy under a sharp velvet blazer is incredibly sleek. The perfect pairing of sexy and powerful. Let the bra be delicately seen at the décolletage only.
the linen ensemble
The safari-style linen suit is undeniably one of the trends of autumn. Give the look an extra kick with a hint of pretty underwear. A bold resin earring will complete the look.
pinafore and paisley
For something different before the weather cools down, do a cute pinafore or overalls with a printed bralette. The spot of paisley from the side is modern bohemian.
The button-down knit
A fitted ribbed cardigan that you can undo to show the contrast of black bra is casually cool. Team with skinny black jeans and a pair of strappy heels to dress it up for the night.
The white and SheeR
The drapey, wrap jacket is a much talked about look for this year. Go white on white with your ensemble and include a luxe champagne shade underwire for ethereal perfection.
the Silk shirt
A black silk shirt is a must for every woman’s wardrobe. Its chameleon ability is impressive. Take it date night level with a pretty pop-colour bra you show from the middle button up.
the sporty bomber
A little different to the other looks, this one is your weekend warrior. A subtle way to show off hard working abdominals and the latest silhouette to rock the athleisure world.
