Does underwear as outerwear make you run for the hills? Will you bare your bralette or keep it slightly more under wraps, a few lace edges peeping out to show off your feminine side? (remembering to steer clear of the peep show look of course…)
It could be seen as a trend for the brave – wearing them on top of T’s or on their own (a la Kendall and Cara) , but my tip for feminine appeal without salacious overload is to layer under a lace top, blazer or shirt. It softens and updates the popular androgynous boyfriend jean/masculine shirt look too.
If you need extra support, like me wink wink, my reco is to layer the bralette over your underwired bra & if you’re tall and tend to create sharp silhouettes, pair with high waisted, wide leg trousers and a cinched in leather or bell sleeve tailored jacket.
What’s more, it’s a trend that won’t break the bank, cost per wear is ridiculously low due to the plethora of styling options. Prices range from £8 upwards…making it a trend for everyone on any budget.
To max out on your choice, shade selection is crucial unless you opt for lacy black – warm soft peaches and corals for warm toned skins with yellow undertones. Icy, faded shades for colder toned skins. They look uber-cool on bronzed skin, so get that Balearic holiday booked right now.
