3 Stylish Ways To Wear Bra Tops

By  | 

Do you feel it, do you feel it? Going by the temperature outside and this air-conditioned box I sit in all day, it finally feels like summer. People call me crazy when I tell them summer is my favourite month.

But think about it: you can wear whatever you want without the fear of getting too cold! Yes, that means shorts, minis, swimsuits, and crop tops.

My new favourite these days is the bra top or a bralette. They’re just a bit smaller than a crop top and your mom is definitely not going to be pleased when you walk out the door wearing one.

But, if it’s any consolation, we figured out 3 ways to wear it without making it look like you’re wearing a bikini — let’s hope the mothership approves of these!

Wear It With Anything High Waisted

Whether it’s a skirt, jeans, or formal trousers, if you wear a bralette with something high-waisted, it immediately reduces the amount of skin on display and becomes totally acceptable to wear, other than near a pool.

What Are Bomber Jackets For?

A lightweight bomber jacket is perfect for summer, especially on those days when you haven’t waxed and still want to wear your little bra top. Wear yours with a bomber and jeans, trousers, a skirt, or pretty much anything you like under.

P.S. If you’re feeling it, you could totally pull off a mix between Olivia Newton John and the Pink Ladies à la Grease!

Make It Formal

A bra top at a formal do? It can be done! Pick a top in your favourite shade and pair it with a structured skirt and a waistcoat. It’s formal, not too revealing, and a definite head-turner.
