Bralettes are the perfect layering piece for summer and add an effortlessly fashionable element to any wardrobe. This classic style staple is both versatile and trendy. From lacy designs to chic halters and minimalistic styles, bralettes come in many different forms in a variety of colors and materials that can be paired with many different types of outfits.
With the right styling, you can create several different looks just by incorporating a bralette. Whether you’re heading out for coffee run or to dinner for a girl’s night out, bralettes are a great choice to add a bit of extra flair to your outfit. If you don’t have a bralette in your wardrobe yet, now is the time to grab one. We’ve compiled this guide with some tips on ways to wear a bralette to inspire your summer style.
Paired with a Shirt or Tank Top
For a casual chic look, a bralette can be worn under a loose shirt, tank, or an off the shoulder top. Styles with a low neckline or oversized arm holes work best.
This style is a great way to take your outfit up a notch, and works with a variety of tops, including scoop-necks, cut-out tees, camisole tanks, or racerback styles. No matter what you choose, there is a bralette to match the look.
Adding a bralette to an otherwise simple outfit adds a special touch without any extra effort, and can even add some extra coverage if needed. A triangle bralette layered under a basic loose, white tank top paired with some slip-on sneakers is an adorable, simple look for a walk in the park or a trip to the coffee shop. You can style the top with denim shorts, jeans, or even a mini or maxi skirt.
Worn Under a Low-Back Sweater
To style a bralette in a relaxed and cozy way, all you need to do is pair it with the right items. Style a bralette with a low-back sweater or top to show off the cute detailing without overpowering the outfit. Bralettes add interest and texture to your outfit and can even be worn in place of a bra. This style is very versatile, and different sweaters and bralettes can be mixed and matched to create tons of different outfits.
Many bralettes are made with intricate lace, crochet or other accents that look super stylish when peeking out from under low-back tops, adding a feminine touch to even the bulkiest of sweaters. Finish off your outfit with denim or a casual skirt with a pair of chunky sneakers or booties.
When you want to be cozy, but still look cute, this is the outfit for you. This layered style is super easy and comfy to throw on and to look effortlessly put together in no time, no matter where you’re headed.
Dress it Up
Most people think of casual looks when styling a bralette. Yet, they can also be dressed up for an elevated look. Take your outfit to the next level and dress up your bralette by pairing it with jeans and a jacket, a semi-sheer top, a maxi skirt or a gorgeous backless dress.
Another option is to style a bralette under a white button down top for a sophisticated style with a twist. Simply find your favorite white button down that has a loose fit and pair it with a black bralette underneath for high contrast, smart casual look, or with a bright colored bralette for a more vibrant look. Add a pair of mom jeans and pumps, and you’ll be ready for a night out on the town.
