How to Wear a Bralette

It is a big no-no in fashion to have your bra outline showing through the back of your dress or peeking out from the side; however, when it comes to a bralette you may as well show as much as you want. A bralette is a trendy piece of womanswear that lies in between a bra and a crop top. It usually has a lace design and it fits narrowly across the torso without a clasp or underwire. It can sometimes be difficult to know how to wear a bralette because you don’t want to hide it under your shirt or your dress.

In this OneHowTo article we share how to wear a bralette.

Casual day look

Bralettes come in all shapes, sizes and colours, and while some will replace the common bra, others can be used as crop tops. If you are meeting with a couple friends for some fun shenanigans around the neighbourhood, you can pair a bralette with a pair of jeans. A pair of distressed high-waisted jean shorts and a flannel shirt plus a pair of white sneakers work perfectly. The shorts and the flannel shirt give you an edgy look; but the bralette adds a feminine touch. Alternatively, you can use a loose shirt that has long underarm circles to just expose your bralette on the side.

Evening look

If you are attending a special occasion and you want to dress up for a formal event you can pair a bralette with a long high-waisted skirt. We suggest that you go simple for the top and take risks for the bottom. For instance, choose a flowy skirt with a fun print. The shape and cut of the bralette should be soft and elegant. We recommend one that has thing straps and covers most of your torso. Finish the look with a cute hand purse and a pair of high heels.

Comfy winter day

When it starts to get chilly outside you may start filling up your closet with high boots, comfy sweaters and plenty of scarfs. When you are adding layer after layer you might not want to bother about wearing a bralette that no one else will see. Nonetheless, if you have one of those over the shoulder sweaters or one that hangs from one shoulder, layering a bralette underneath a sweater can completely transform the look to give it a winter boho style. It adds an element of sexiness and fearlessness. You can always pair it with an elegant necklace or a warm scarf.

Formal business attire

Long past due are the days when business meant boring, classic and unexciting. The traditional business attire consists of a suit jacket with a suit skirt or pair of pants, and a crisp white shirt. However, you can spice things up by adding a bralette into the mix. For instance, choose a white simple bralette and pair it over a pair of high-waisted black suit pants that cut off at ankle length. Then, wear an unfitted black suit jacket on top to complete the polished look. A high waisted tube skirt will work as well.
