Bralettes became a big thing last year and they don’t seem to be going away anytime soon. Even in the dead of winter, girls are sporting flirty lace and perfectly printed florals over turtle necks and shirts. For a more demure look, I’d opt for a see-through shirt over a lacey number, even a low-cut shirt/top can be sassed up with one of these cute numbers.
My (ever-growing) collection is a mix of Accessorize, ASOS, Calvin Klein and New Look. Feminine and light, bralettes are perfect for ladies with slightly smaller assets and can be worn whatever the weather. Personally, I wouldn’t opt for the over the shirt look, but style is subjective, and there are plenty of women who have rocked said look and owned it.
My mother always told me, “make sure your underwear is presentable, you never know if you could end up in an accident and you don’t want to be laying on a hospital bed in old undies”… I bet you’re having visions of Bridget Jones’s granny panties… I know I am! Funnily, enough, that is something that has always stuck with me, not the warnings of moisturising daily (which I do) or staying away from boys (which I don’t). But this new trend of showing of your underwear on a day-to-day basis has given a whole new meaning to her warning!
