It’s 2017 but I am still obsessed with bralettes. Not only are they comfortable to wear but they’re also great layering pieces. You don’t always have to wear them underneath see-through tops, you can get creative and pair them with V-neck blouses and open back tops. To give you some inspiration, we’ve matched different tops and bralettes to give you the perfect combinations for you to try out.
A bralette is the go-to option when wearing a see-through top. This long tulle shirt from Zara has a mandarin collar front button-up fastening. Pair this with a simple black bralette like the Dani by Sefra and your sexy look is complete. Available at Power Plant Mall and Miz and Moxie.
An interesting way to show off a bralette is by wearing a low-cut back top. This simple T-shirt is made of jersey material and the open back is perfect for a lace bralette. What makes the Lena design eye catching is the midrib floral straps. Available at SM Makati and online.
If you want to make your bralette the standout piece of your outfit, go for one with an intricate design. This option from Balmain is made of multi-colored silk and features a halter neck. You can pair this bralette with a plain white button up shirt and leave it open as a layering piece. Available at Power Plant Mall and on Farfetch.
Bralettes also look great underneath plunging tops. This long sleeve blouse has pleat details on the front and a closure by the waist of the top. Go for an all white look by pairing it with a white bralette like this one from Bershka that has lace trimming. Throw on some white trousers and shoes and you’re ready for a party. Available on Farfetch and at SM Aura Premier.
Pair an edgy graphic tee with a feminine lace bralette for a well-balanced look. This top has a V-neck cutout so the lace details of the bra will peek through. The soft-cup bra has adjustable straps and scalloped edges with lace trim. Available at Greenbelt 5 and Net-a-Porter.
