A lot of people struggle with styling bralettes. Are they underwear or are they outerwear? Is it tacky to expose them or is it chic?
Firstly, yes, a bralette is a bra--it's a boob cover upper. Easy as that. Some are lace, some are cotton, some are long, some are short, some are sheer and some are opaque. There is an array of sizes, styles and colors to accommodate anyone. That's why they're hard to style.
In the top outfit, I opted for a more basic bralette, one that has no fuss. I paired it under a Peter Pan collar blouse and black jeans. The black of the bralette will peek through the blouse, and adding a coat will keep the supposed faux pas at bay, while also offering warmth and interest.
The second outfit, I went with a more structured bralette, one that shows up well under a light color. Because this bralette is slightly longer than most, it is less bra-esque and more like a crop top. Throwing an ivory sweater over top the crop top and pleated skirt combo plays peekaboo but in a less revealing way.
An effortless way to style a bralette is to just throw a slouchy layer over top. In the top outfit, I threw an oversized mustard cardigan over a basic bralette and skirt combo. The cardigan adds a layer of interest as well as a contrasting color to keep the outfit from being too monotone. The beret and gold tipped loafers tie the whole casual-chic outfit together.
The fringed kimono gives off a tiny bit of a boho feel and paired with some caged heels and a lace bralette, you're ready to soak up some sun (whenever it decides to come back)!
