How To Style a Bralette

There’s a big trend right now with bralettes, and it’s for great reasons. First off, they’re extremely comfortable. I much prefer them to a normal bra because they’re so easy and you hardly know you’re wearing it. Second, they’re so cute and add a really adorable detail to any outfit. They also work to add some coverage as well, so that’s a plus in my book. I love the oversized shirts and sweaters trend that’s going along with it, and instead of just bare skin, adding a cute, stylish lacey bralette underneath is such a great way to throw in a little flare of your own.

I will say I know that bralettes don’t work for everyone, as my best friend is very gifted in the chest area and needs the real support of a bra most of the time. But for those of us on the smaller side of the spectrum, they’re very a Godsend. I’ve come up with a few ways to style bralettes below to give you some style inspo for this Spring and Summer!

KEEP IT CASUAL

I think the best way this style works is when you are styling casually (AKA I wouldn’t do this at work unless your company is REALLY laid back). The only ways I’ve seen this style work well is with loose tees and tanks instead of fitted things. It just doesn’t have the same look otherwise personally. I love that the bralette gives you the ability to dress up a more casual look with a very subtle sexiness.

Shop this look:

LOOSE NECKLINES & TOPS

The whole point of a bralette is to show it off a little, right? I size up in my looser fitting tops to be able to wear them off the shoulder and let the bralette peak out a bit. I think it looks better than just a standard bra strap or even bare skin. It adds cute chicness to a simple tee or tank.

Shop this look:

TRY THICKER STRAPS

The bralettes with the racerback style are typically a little easier to show off because they have thicker straps. Another big trend from last fall and winter was the open back detail of tops. I love having a beautiful lacey racerback to add under my tie-up sweater. It’s a little sexy but also adds coverage. Plus this saves you from having to go totally braless or wearing a sticky bra and is way cuter!

Shop this look:

OPEN BACK TOPS

This is where the racerback style bralettes really look great. Open back tops give you a chance to show off the pretty lace details without being too sexy with no bra or too boring with a typical bra. I love having lace under open things because (obviously I can’t harp on it enough) I love the extra coverage! I love the layered look of it and it’s become one of my favorite styles. I showed it above for a cute date night look but I also love to rock this look with open back sweaters like below.

Shop this look:

DEEP V NECKS

I like to wear a cami under most of my tops, but in the warm months it’s nice just to have a bralette as an additional layer. On low cut tops, having a bralette adds a little extra coverage and a feminine touch. V Necks are great for wearing with the high-neck bralettes that are becoming popular. You can also wear loose V necks off the shoulder a bit as well with normal style bralettes.

Shop this look:

MIX AND MATCH COLORS

While I will style my favorite white bralette with a white top, it’s more fun to add a pop of color underneath. I like to do rose or grey with white, rose with a grey top, blush with a white top, black with a grey top, etc. Letting the color stand out is part of the fun!

Shop this look:

LOOSE TANKS

I saved the best for last as this one is my favorite! I love loose flowy tanks and they’re great for Spring and Summer. In the Spring I love to style them with large cardigans for a cozy layered look.

  • Comfy casual for errands is my style 👌🏻 also I love this hat because on the days I don’t feel like doing anything with my hair, hats are a lifesaver. And dry shampoo 😂. I put a poll up on my stories yesterday asking if you guys want to see a series of posts on #cozyminimalism and the answer was an overwhelming yes! I’ve already started working on them and will start posting next week so stay tuned!! In the mean time, check out my post on 12 ways you’re wasting money on clothes and how to stop. We’re all guilty of it 🤷🏻‍♀️. Click the link in my profile to read!  http://liketk.it/2zSzn #liketkit @liketoknow.it
  • Fun fact day about my wonderful husband: Jake has this uncanny ability to make me smile and laugh even when I’m sick. I was in bed all weekend but somehow he managed to still make me feel better. 
He is the king of puns and loves to make corny jokes. I’m talking real bad dad jokes. But I think they’re hilarious, and his enthusiasm and the fact that HE finds them so funny is the best part.

It’s the little things like this that showed me he was my perfect person. That and he told me he was going to marry me after 3 weeks of dating 😂🤷🏻‍♀️ which also made my laugh at the time but 9 months later he was down on one knee! 
That was also the same day I tried to break up with him because I had just gotten out of a bad relationship and I was starting to like him way too much too soon. I told him I wasn’t ready for another relationship and he literally said “are you trying to break up with me? ...no. We’re gonna get married.” I busted out laughing but he was so serious.
Even then, I could tell he really believed that. Now 4 months into our marriage he still shows me every day he wants to be married to me ❤️👰🏻🤵🏻 We have to appreciate the little things like the bad jokes because the effort behind them is how people say “I love you” in other ways. Happy Monday 💕#marriedlife💍 #marriagegoals
