We live in a Crop Top Era, where shortened tanks and tees can basically flatter any body type when styled correctly. The look is so prevalent, in fact, that it has given birth to new trends—including the almighty midi top and the exposed bralette.
Think you can only wear bralettes in the boudoir or camouflaged under clothes? Think again. Let us submit exhibit A: Kendall Jenner. Not quite a sports bra, but the striped detail gives off an athletic feel. Of course, you don't want to look like you're going to the gym, so pair your casual-cool bralette with tailored slacks and a structured jacket.
If strappy bralettes feel too risqué or Fifty Shades of Grey to wear in public, follow in Zendaya's footsteps and wear a sheer top over your cagey bra. You won't feel so exposed but the design of those extra straps won't go missed. If you're not the shy type at all, more power to you!
Shay Mitchell may look like she's wearing a simple bralette, but, really, it anchors the rest of the outlet. Even though it's just slightly exposed underneath her jacket, it's still the focal point. Make sure your anchor is simple but interesting. A textured bralette in a satin, suede, leather or with embellished detailing will do the trick.
